Fish and chips with peas ... cajun style (ish)

Friday night fish and chips, with peas - cos we love it ... but tonight some cajun spicing and some extra veg from the organic box make it a new version of a consistent favourite.

So, coming in from the train/commute like me ... you need to i - get that oven on heating up - chop the potatoes and get them on to boil.  Then calm down a bit  and take the next bits more slowly.


olive oil

Par-boil potatoes, put olive oil in a roasting dish to heat up.
When potatoes are par-boiled, and oil heated up, drain potatoes and bung into the roating pan.
Stir them around until they have a film on every surface sprinkle with salt.
Roast for an hour or so, until crispy.

Green veg

1 onion, finely chopped
olive oil
crushed garlic
savoy cabbage
dry white wine
petit pois

1.  Sweat down chopped onion in olive oil.
2.  When a bit soft add crushed garlic, and wine.
3.  Chuck in shredded cabbage, simmer until soft,
4.  5 minutes before serving chuck in frozen peas .. season ..


Olive oil
White fish
cajun seasoning

1.  Mix polenta and cajun seasoning to taste ... in our case about 50/50 ... because it's on the outside of the fish and not HOT HOT HOT all the way through ... but the fish is nice and spicy.
2.  Dredge the fish in the spice mix.
3.  Shallow fry each piece - a couple of minutes each side.
4.  Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm while you do the rest.

When everything is done .. serve... scoff.
