For the second part of this blog, I’ll be sharing the brunch dish that I created at home with The Saucy Fish Co.‘s products. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the one that I decided to go for was the Salmon with a Chilli, Lime and Ginger dressing because it was so tasty when I had it at the Saucy Fish Co. brunch.
If you’ve followed me on here for a while, you’ll know that brunch is probably my favourite meal of the week and one that I love to go out for, but there is also something really special about creating dishes at home. As far as I can remember, Jordan and I had never used frozen fish in a brunch dish, so I was excited to see what we could come up with.
We popped to the shops and picked up the essentials for any brunch – bread, avocado and eggs – and decided to get some radishes for the dish for a bit of extra crunch. Instead of having the salmon as one filet, we decided it would be nice to have it flaked, which is similar to what they do at the The Saucy Fish Co. brunch too.
For the dish for 2 people, we used:
We’re used to making eggs in the house, and probably have them at least once or twice a week for breakfast, but having the flaked salmon and other elements of the dish felt really special. The salmon is cooked from frozen in a bag for around 30 minutes, and in the last 5-10 minutes, you put the sauce in a pan full of hot water so it is a liquid consistency. As we flaked the salmon, the sauce really added the flavour and was soaked up by the fish.
We crushed the avocado and mixed in some lime juice, pepper, salt and a bit of chilli for taste. After that, we thinly sliced the radishes and chives to sprinkle on the top. We cooked the eggs so they were soft boiled, which is one of the easiest ways to make eggs in my opinion and leaves a lot less mess.
As the brunch was so delicious, I’m really intrigued to use more of The Saucy Fish Co.’s products including the Salmon with Watercress, Rocket and Creme Fraiche dressing, and the Smoked Haddock with Vintage Cheddar and Chive Sauce – my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
I eat fish a lot, but The Saucy Fish Co.’s range is much better than your ordinary frozen fish that you’d find in the supermarket which can be quite dry and flavourless. They’ve gone above and beyond to create a line of delicious fish with sauces to match, and you’d never know that it was a frozen piece you were eating because cooking it in the bag keeps the moisture in and when you add the sauce it’s even better: I’ll definitely be discovering more of the range, as I’ve been converted already.
I hope these two blog posts have inspired you to try something different when it comes to your brunches and to get out of your comfort zone by adding delicious fish to your dishes. You can find the full range of fresh and frozen products on their website here where they have a lot more than you’d expect.
