Pan Fried Haddock with Mushy Peas


Winning means your willing to go longer, work harder and give more than anyone else” Vince Lombardi


This dish is a cheap way to cook a delicious extravagant dish but for a low amount of expense. This recipe is from Eat Well for Less and even as an Athlete there are delicious meals on there that I advise everybody has a go at and uses from time to time as they are cost effective.

Garden peas actually have a high amount of protein in them, and combined with the flour batter and the Haddock itself, you are getting the perfect amount of well balanced protein out of this meal. Quite obviously, the Haddock also contains vital Omega three oils and fatty acids which are good for our memories and our brains and just the general health of our vital organ upstairs.

The homemade fries are a healthy way to have fries with your fish but without the excess fat or other additives that French fries or fries in a restaurant might possibly have. The potato fries give you a large proportion of Carbs from the dish as well.

For me personally, another great meal to have especially after a long run of 20+ kilometres.

3) Meanwhile, prepare the batter for the Haddock fillets by preparing 130g flour in a bowl and slowly adding 150ml of sparkling water, adding it slowly and continuously stirring. You should have what looks like similar to a pancake mixture.

4) Place the Chips on to a baking tray and drizzle 2tbsp of olive oil all over the chips. Place them in the oven and cook for 15-20 mins on 200C until crispy and beginning to brown.

5) Meanwhile, tip the Haddock fillets in the batter mixture, covering very well on both sides.

6) Add the fillets to a wok or deep frying pan and add the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes on both sides until batter turns a crispy brown.

7) Once nearly cooked, add the peas to a saucepan and bring to the boil and then simmer for a few minutes.

8) Drain the peas and mash the peas with the crepe fraich.

9) Serve on the side with the Haddock and homemade fries.
