I Cheated

Yesterday our larder was bare on our return from our trip so we popped into our local supermarket for some emergency supplies.

There is not a huge amount of choice there and we didn't want to go into town to the larger Tesco store so we only bought some essentials to tide us over.

I was still tired from our journey home and did not want to make too much effort with supper so I was tempted  by a pack of spicy quinoa and beans in the frozen food section.

We had a couple of sea bass fillets in our freezer so I defrosted those and cooked them very simply. Just a generous squeeze of ginger puree with chilli flakes into a pan and heat gently. Pop in the sea bass and add a little glug of white wine and simmer for around 15 to 20 minutes.  The frozen quinoa and beans take 2 minutes in the microwave.

Quick and easy.

  1. How would you get ginger puree - make it? and if so from ginger in what form.

    1. This is also where I cheated. I had a tube of ginger puree from the supermarket. I know it is best to make my own but sometimes I jiust don't have the time, or the inclination!

  2. That's my sort of meal! Filleted fish and an interesting salad. You did well

    1. The quinoa and beans were surprisingly quite good. I had also bought a pack of frozen chopped mixed peppers and these were also good. I may buy more to keep for emergencies, when I can't get to the supermarket.

  3. Sometimes simple is best. The picture of the sea bass fillets confused me. At first I thought it was a lady's scarf with a pink side and a silvery side. That would be a hell of a fashion statement - walking into the big Tesco's in Douglas with such an accessory round your neck.

    1. Hmmm. The other shoppers would certainly keep their distance. More room for me in the aisles.

  4. I have sea bass in the freezer and I like the sound of this. I shall buy some ginger puree as I can't be bothered to make my own...
