Sharpen up: Sharpen your kitchen knife to fish-filleting perfection quickly and easily with the bottom of a mug.

Pairing with the right flavours: Delicate fish types such as Hoki melt in your mouth when paired with complimentary flavours like garlic, citrus and herbs.

Start with the right equipment: For the perfect pan-fried fish fillets, invest in a good quality heavy bottomed non-stick fry-pan.

Careful cutting: Stop your chopping board from sliding around by placing a wet paper towel underneath it.

Scrumptious crispy skin: Rest your fish on paper towels skin-side down for a few mins, then sauté skin-side down over medium heat in oil and butter. Turn for another few minutes of cooking and you’re done.

It's in the bag: Create a baking paper bag around the fish and bake until the paper is slightly puffed and the fish feels tender.

Lemon fresh feeling: Give your chopping board a salt and lemon scrub then rinse with water for a lemon-fresh clean.

A tip for tacos: Forks aren’t needed when digging into a tasty taco, but they’ll keep them in place on your plate.

Exsqueeze me: Use a pair of tongs to get every last drop of juice out of a lemon and on to your fish.


The fresh fish test

When purchasing fresh, whole fish, look for:

    • Bright skin or scales
    • Firm flesh that springs back when touched
    • Bright pink-red gills

When purchasing fillets or steaks, look for:

    • Bright and firm flesh
    • Any dark muscle should be pink-red in colour
    • Both whole fish and fillets or steaks should have a pleasant sea fresh smell

Meal Planner

Meal planning doesn’t need to be complicated. Preparing ahead makes life easier, saves time and helps save you money all while creating delicious, healthy meals. 

  Here are some tips for family meal planning:

  1. Check out what you already have in the cupboards,fridge and freezer that needs to be used up. 
  2. Ask your family to suggest a meal they’d like to add to the weekly rotation. This saves you from having to do all the thinking, and the kids are more likely to have a meal they have suggested or helped prepare. 
  3. Include lunches in your plan. Plan to make more than enough for dinner, and take the leftovers for lunch the following day - an easy way to save time and money.
  4. Have a quick flick through the supermarket flyers. Check if there are any good deals you can build a meal around. 
  5. Use a meal-planning sheet. A meal-planning sheet helps you set realistic goals and prepare for the week ahead.
