Grilled Haddock

Grilled Haddock

With Spicy Rice

Posted on October 21, 2015
One evening the husband and I were driving through a shopping center, and we saw that there was a Nando's going in. He waxed poetic about their rice and how amazing it was. I knew that I needed to find a way to make it for him. If you're not familiar, Piri-Piri is the name of the game with Nando's dishes. So I set about gathering the spices that would bring that kind of flavor. That is how the recipe for Grilled Haddock With Spicy Rice was born. 

This turned out a little warmer than I had intended, but the scent was just amazing. A huge plate of veggie laden rice, topped with a perfectly grilled haddock fillet that is smothered in garlic, butter and more piri-piri spice. The husband and I were in flavor heaven. Try this and you will be too.

On The Grill

I need to eat more seafood. That's a fact. Salmon is still my favorite fish. It's meaty and hearty, fills you up. Being in a mood for Japanese one night, I decided to make Salmon Teriyaki On The Grill. It turned out fantastic. Paired with Vegetable Tempura, we had a meal made in grilling heaven.

A Toasty Take On Fish Sandwiches

Posted on August 18, 2014

My husband's granny used to pack him salmon sandwiches for lunch. Like tuna salad sandwiches, only with canned salmon. I know, not a great way to start a blog post, especially if you're like me and don't really find the sound of that appealing at all. But these Salmon Sandwiches are made with fresh salmon, seasoned lightly and grilled gently for a lovely smokey flavor. Then they're flaked with some light mayonnaise and placed onto bread that has been lovingly toasted. Doesn't that sound more appealing?

Basic Brine Recipe

Basic Brine Recipe

Posted on June 28, 2011

Brines are not quite marinades, but more of a salty solution that helps keep the moisture in meats that typically dry out during the grilling process. This is a popular solution for turkey and pork.

The things to remember about using brine are;

  • Always rinse then pat dry the meat before cooking
  • Use a container that is big enough to fully submerge your meat, but not so big that it is allowed to float
  • A general rule is 1/2 quart (1/2 litre) per 1/2 lb of meat
