Easy fish recipes with Princes products

 

Princes hamper

If you think producing a quick delicious fish dish is difficult Princes are out to prove you wrong and to do so they sent me a hamper of their products and asked me to get cooking with them, so I did.

There was the time my sister in law popped over with my niece and nephew and I prepared baguettes with a tuna mayo filling that everyone was happy with plus it took minutes to get ready. I particularly like this idea as I always have a can of tuna or two kicking around in the cupboard and I always have some mayo in the fridge because I am addicted to the stuff.

On this occasion, to keep the kids happy I kept them plain but if you do like to liven up a baguette then this recipe fave of mine is good

Mari’s tuna baguette

 
Makes 2
1 tin of tuna – in brine is better as less oily
1 tbsp mayonnaise light
2 anchovies chopped finely
1/2 tsp capers
1/4 cucumber diced
black pepper
1 small baguette

Drain the tuna and place in a bowl, add the mayonnaise and all the other ingredients, mix well together.

We tried quite a few different things in the hamper and one of our favourites were the tins of mackerel, there is a delicious Moroccan spice one that is simply perfect to eat on crusty bread like the tomato mackerel fillets shown below

I had a go at various pasta dishes here is a very delicious and simple recipe to try out.

Tuna, courgette and asparagus pasta

Ingredients

1 x 160 can Princes Tuna chunks – hold back 2 tbsp olive oil
175g pasta – short pasta works better
1 clove garlic chopped finely
85g asparagus hard stalk removed and then cut in half
1 small courgette sliced diagonally
2 tbsp creme fraiche
2 tbsp chopped parsley and basil
25g parmesan
  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water, drain and set aside. Adding a drop of olive oil to the water whilst cooking will prevent it sticking together once drained.
  2. Boil the asparagus and courgettes for 3 – 4 minutes, drain and set aside
  3. Heat the olive oil saved from the tuna tin in a large pan, add the garlic and cook gently for 1 minute. Add the asparagus and courgette and cooked pasta and toss gently.
  4. Add the creme friache to the pasta, and stir through the chopped herbs.
  5. Stir through the chunks of tuna, add black pepper and serve
  6. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top

We also made a Tuna in tomato sauce variation which can be seen in the pictures below. The girls loved it. Plus a salmon and vegetable pasta. For plenty more ideas on how to use the Princes products visit their recipe page

Fish are a lean, healthy source of protein. The oily kinds such as salmon, tuna, sardines, contain omega-3 fats which are especially good for healthy hearts and brains.
