The Big Fish Brand – Ready To Cook Salmon Fillets
A lot of my friends are afraid of cooking fish. It baffles me. Fish is quick and easy to cook and so full of Omega 3. I was recently introduced to this company that does ready seasoned, ready to cook Salmon. Just pick your favourite flavour, cook it for about 10-15 minutes and serve it with your favourites salad or vegetables.
There is choice of flavours including, BBQ sauce (a bit too sweet) , garden mint (a surprising but a flavour that works), sweet chilli( a little hint of spice) , Thai ( the crowd favourite) and lemon and pepper( the least favourite).
I cooked the in the bag that the fish is packaged in, in a pot of boiling water as this way we can have a lot of sauce that the fish is marinated in. You can bake it or microwave it instead if you prefer. I served the fish with some sweet potato fries and a side salad. A lovely quick and delicious meal, full of healthy essential oils and a great alternative to ready meals or fast food.
The Big Fish Brand is a Grimsby based business who sell responsibly sourced Atlantic Salmon. You can buy the fish from their online shop and they ship it in a reusable cool bag. Very convenient.
Manomosa Tortilla Chips
Manomasa was born on the back streets of Mexico and pays tribute to the original tortilla chip – the totopo, a flat corn product from the Oaxaca region. These were originally baked and salted for preservation to prevent the decomposition of the corn and to prevent mould.
Manomasa Tortillas are not your average tortilla chips as they have some unique flavourings and have added ingredients like caraway seeds, quinoa and pumpkin seeds. I love the street food inspired flavours these chips come in.
The top favourite, Tomatillo Salsa: The Totopo Grande comes in the most familiar triangular shape. This one uses all the most on trend South American ingredients. It’s studded with superfood red and white quinoa and flavoured with tingling Peruvian Amarillo chilli and Tomatillo salsa. This chip is made with white corn masa and gently toasted for a lighter bite.
Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper: The Sixer is obviously hexagonal in shape. Has an extra bite with the addition of poppy, sunflower, linseed and caraway seeds. Using strong yellow corn masa to make a medium thick chip and flavoured with salt and black pepper.
Chipotle & Lime: The Totopo is a flavour combination most reminiscent of Mexican food. This has a blend of Guajillo chilli and sweet red bell peppers, finished with rich, smoky chipotle chilli and the fresh zing of lime.
Manchego & Green Olive: The rectangular shaped Dipper chips have juicy Mediterranean olives, spicy pimiento and tangy Manchego cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain.
Some of the chips are slightly thinner than the others on the market that you might be more familiar with but they still have a satisfying crunch. They are very tasty to eat on their own, but you can make some dips to go with them or use them in cheesy nachos. Perfect snack for a night in front of the tele watching Great British Menu. You can buy them from all leading supermarkets and food stores.
Gadget of the Week
Kilner Glass Drinks Dispenser
I saw this Kilner Jug recently and thought it would be perfect for some fruity cocktails at a summer BBQ party or just to have at home with a constant supply of citrussy drinking water. It is in a retro Kilner glass jug and has a plastic tap in the front. It comes in a couple of sizes, 5 ltr and 8 ltr. You can keep it in the fridge and the tap is removable for cleaning.
The orange rubber in the lid will need to be removed so that it is not airtight for the tap to flow. The tap does sit a bit high on the jar so there will be a bit of liquid left at the bottom which you have to pour out.
A great alternative to plastic water containers too. You can get the Kilner Drinks Dispenser on Amazon (it’s discounted) and you get free delivery on Amazon Prime or from John Lewis where you can click and collect from your nearest Waitrose.
