It’s a family classic and one which kids love! Sometimes it’s nice to get the ingredients together to make this family favourite from scratch. And it’s a lot easier than you might think.
This recipe can be made with white fish of your choice. We suggest you try sustainable haddock for something different as it is packed full of essential vitamins – most notably B vitamins. A 90g portion contains 3.9 milligrams of niacin and 1.2 micrograms of vitamin B-12. Other B vitamins include B-6, thiamin, riboflavin, folate and pantothenic acid. The B vitamins are essential for food metabolism and the formation of red blood cells. Haddock also contains several minerals, including phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, sodium, zinc, copper and manganese. The most abundant mineral in haddock is selenium, with a 90g portion of cooked haddock containing 34.4 micrograms or almost 50 percent of the recommended dietary intake. Selenium is reported to help prevent cancer, heart disease and diabetes. A lack of selenium has also been linked to a weakened immune system. What a great micro-nutrient rich fish!
This can be served with your favourite side dish, but we’ve opted for smoky potato wedges, which can be substituted for sweet potatoes (see recipe below). Swap the breadcrumbs to gluten-free bread if you are avoiding gluten/wheat.
