3 easy treats to make for your special woman
If there’s one thing I’d like to see this March, it’s women not having to spend a minute longer in the kitchen than they want to. Here are three super fast recipes for wholesome meals – and anyone can make them, so guys, if you want to treat your mom, wife, significant other to something delicious and home made for a change, take note.
Is it a fish taco? Is it a roll? What it is, is delicious.
Roti/chapatti, lightly toasted
Half a Basa fillet (you can get these in the frozen section of the supermarket)
Half a tomato, diced
1 green chilli, finely chopped
Handful of cilantro or coriander, finely chopped
Half a ripe avocado, diced
Half a shallot, finely sliced
Salt and pepper
Juice of 1 lime, freshly squeezed
¼ mango, diced (optional)
Wash Basa fillet properly, and squeeze or pat dry. Make sure it’s dry. Add salt and pepper on to both sides. Resist the temptation to toss in the holud morich. Take a super hot pan, and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Drop in the fillet, sear both sides and cover and cook. Lower the heat to medium now. And no matter how curious you get, don’t peek. Don’t let the steam escape. The steam will cook the fish through. Give it about 7 minutes for this to happen.
Over that, fish laid
Add all the chopped ingredients on top and roll em' up and serve.
It's exactly what it sounds like.
