Re: Whats For Supper?

Breaded halibut fillets With wedge cut potatoes & garden salad.

Also, just a note-I also tried the hassleback potatoes BFY. I put them in the microwave for 10 minutes (two potatoes). then in the oven at 400 degrees F.        I oiled them & seasoned with garlic powder & pepper. But I found them quite bland. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to them. I will have to try again, maybe add some salt? Although I don't normally use salt when I cook. Just letting you know your not alone... neutral
P.S. Your potatoes looked perfect B.F.Y.!

Coincidentally, this email arrived last night. It may/ may not help:

Re: Whats For Supper?

Thanks For the link Maree.
I think adding the garlic  in-between & using some salt may help. I will try again soon & keep you all posted on how they turn out!

You're welcome. I think from memory, Y put garlic slivers in the cuts when he made. Might be wrong smile.

Yes, I did. I believed it would keep the slices apart a little thereby aiding the cooking and allowing the spice mixtures to penetrate easily. Unfortunately I cannot say whether it worked or not.

As far as adding salt is concerned, I tend to use too much so I shouldn't comment.

Out of interest, a friend of mine a couple of hundred kilometers north of here made some the following day and after taking account of my failure, he adjusted cooking times and his were wonderful.

Re: Whats For Supper?

Tonight will be whatever is freshest at the fishmonger  big_smile   I have some leeks and some potatoes to go along with the fish.

Edit - the fishmonger had some lovely lemon sole fillets, and I found some samphire locally to go with them, the leeks and the potato!
