Poached Halibut with Mash Potato & Parsley Sauce.

Tuesday 19th April 2011

“Do you remember the cod in parsley sauce we used to get when we were kids? It came in a bag and you put it in boiling water to cook it.” I asked my wife.

We don’t often have the same childhood memories. Our upbringing’s were the complete polar opposites. So I was expecting the usual;

“No, we didn’t have that.”


“Yeah, I remember those. You taught me how to make fish pie with them when I went to college.”

“Did I ?” I said, more than a tad surprised.

“Yeah, you told me to boil the little bag, put it in the dish and put mash potato on top.”

What can I say, Even at 18 years-old I was a budding culinary genius. 😉

Zephy bolted this down, like he hadn’t eaten for 3 days, and said;

“Is there anymore please?”

    Did you and your wife know each other as kids? In college? How did you meet, and how long have you been married?

    A gorgeous fish meal. The fish melted in the mouth. This reminded me of the poached plaice I used to have as a child. Yummy.
