However there was one part of it that I think was good: the recipes. So I'm going to continue that here, whenever we make a particularly nice dinner. Like tonight. This is easy beyond belief but people always seem to be impressed by it. :)
Cod with a Pesto Crust (serves 2)
2 cod fillets (or salmon, or chicken actually if you don't eat fish)
1 slice wholemeal bread (the sandwich kind rather than the cakey, soda-style kind)
Pesto (I just used green basil/pine nut pesto from a jar but more accomplished cooks may wish to make their own...no thanks!)
1. Set the oven to 180 Celsius.
2. Grease a baking dish with olive oil and lay the fillets in it.
3. Convert your slice of bread to breadcrumbs through sheer bloody minded persistence or in my case, by popping it in the food processor for a few seconds.
4. In a bowl, add two heaping teaspoons of pesto and a handful of grated cheddar. Add as much of the breadcrumbs as you'd like to form a nice paste that you can smear on top of the fish.5. Smear the paste on top of the fish. I load it on with a spoon and then flatten with my hands.
