I’ve got a bit of red snapper in the oven, doused in oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper, a squirt of lemon juice, and a splash of Maggie’s Green Chilli Sauce. It’s going on the plate with some Basmati and wild rice, coleslaw, corn and peas. (At least I did when I originally started writing this last week.)
OK, not freaking out, just kind of fidgety on this frigid Friday. I’ve got some fish in the oven and I’m watching the PM give a keynote speech on a post-Brexit future. Outside it has stopped snowing but the wind is rather intense. More snow expected later.
Amazing how these things slip by. Spice Guy Cyrus Todiwala is on Saturday Kitchen making spiced venison skewers with a Brussels sprouts thoran which looks kind of excellent. But he mentioned that it is National Curry Week this side of the pond. As if we need an excuse.
Victoria Wood’s At The Chippy song is a joyful celebration of a British institution, although it seems that we now eat fish and chips half as often as we did in 1974. Perhaps that is because it no longer gets served wrapped in newspaper?
