These crunchy crumbed fish bites are flavoured with lemon pepper and served with crispy roast potatoes. A fresh salad with creamy dressing is the perfect accompaniment to this family-friendly meal. You can use any firm white fish fillets you like to make the fish bites. I just go for whatever looks fresh and is on special. If you don’t like […]
Chicken and barley salad is first on this week’s menu. The pearl barley is nutty and nutritious, and the peanut dressing adds pizazz! Next up is a cheesy polenta bake. It’s loaded up with sausages, mushrooms and spring onions. Finish the week with oven-baked vegetarian taquitos - a delicious Tex Mex meal.
