Pan fried mackerel with mash and tomato stew

Nowadays, you’ll often hear people on radio and television talking about ‘good fats’ and ‘bad fats’, and they urge you to eat more oily fish for your intake of ‘good fats’. Well, let me tell you, that mackerel is one of the best examples of a good oily fish. As well as this important health factor, mackerel is also great value for money and has a lovely meaty texture.

Serves 4

To Serve:

Place mashed potato in centre of plate and spoon some stewed tomatoes beside it. Place fish on the mash and drizzle with pesto.

Thai beef stir fry

The great thing about this recipe is that it is so versatile. People often ask whether they can have nuts during pregnancy and the answer is absolutely. If you are cooking this for the family just remember to take the nuts out for any babies or toddlers, as children under the age of five should not have nuts.

Serves 4

To Serve: Arrange the rice on warmed serving plates and then spoon the beef stir fry on top.
