Stove-top haddock with fennel seeds and basil.

We definitely don't eat enough fish in our house. I love fish but I'm really fussy about when and where to buy it. I have always been told never buy fish on a Sunday because they don't land fish so it would always be a day old. The problem we have is that we do our shopping on a Sunday. I also like to buy fish from the fishmonger but then there is the hassle of getting there and on a day when you need to go into town. To cut a long story short I made a special effort and we had this dish midweek. This has to be one of the easiest dishes, also because it uses a lot of ingredients that we have in anyway. The biggest difference was canned cherry tomatoes, which are really nice and now we buy them a bit more often. Basically cook everything in the pan and you can do it all in the time it takes to cook rice. The flavours were really good, I love fennel and anything aniseed, children weren't quite so impressed though. But for a quick mid week supper a definite repeat but might just slightly alter the flavour so the fussy one will eat.


  1. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but LP's paprika baked cod & chorizo (from Home cooking made easy) is delicious. The flavours aren't as strong as fennel, so it is easier on the palette x

  2. Yes, made the chorizo baked cod back in November, anything with chorizo is a definite hit in our house, especially with the children. Thanks for reading.

  3. I'm not familiar with fennel seeds but this is good to know the benefits of this fennel seeds
