Seaside crumble

This seaside crumble is a great way to get the fish into the smallies, if it isn’t their thing. It’s  also a seaside crumble 1great introduction to Fish for babies.(because  the cod is really subtle and the recipe tastes so creamy)

I’ve been trying to get more fish into the family for a while now.. I love fish, and I’ve mentioned before if I was out for a meal, I always order fish.

My other half and Lils” both aren’t that great on the fishy fish, they don’t like salmon or prawns (which I love) so I’m trying to break them in gently.

This dish is super easy to cook but tastes posh enough to have as a “Friday night dinner”..  with a glass of vino or two (for mammy and daddy, when the kiddos have gone to bed)

it,s also a good one if you have a few buddies and their kiddies over for lunch..

For any slimming world folk,s this dish is free using the parmesan as your healthy extra a and bread crumbs as your healthy extra b..  it really tastes like a cheat meal.

  • 4 cod fillets
  • 1 small tin of sweetcorn/ garden peas.. (whatever you prefer)seaside crumble 4

  4. Hi Jolene, have just been introduced to your recipes and love this one. As I do not eat meat/chicken can you suggest an alternative to using chicken stock cube.
