Fish and chips on the braai and a GREEN salad
September 21, 2011 in Uncategorized
Since it’s National Braai Day on Saturday, I thought I’d share two different options for you to consider when planning your meal this weekend.
If things go my way(have to get past hubby, king braaier!), I’ll do fish and sweet potato wedges on the braai and a gorgeous GREEN salad of asparagus, avo, broad beans, mint, feta cheese and lemon zest. Sounds good right? I can assure you, it is!
For the braaied fish and chips
Parboil sweet potatoes cut into chunky wedges for no more than 10 minutes.
Generously rub freshly ground black pepper, lemon zest on yellow tail or tuna fillets cut into steaks.
Grill or braai the fish for a few minutes on each side and until cooked to your liking. Braai the wedges simultaneously.
Meanwhile whip up a chill mayo or yoghurt dressing.

For the GREEN salad
You will need:
1-2 firm avos, peeled and cut into chunks
1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed and steamed until al dente
1 packet of broad(fava) beans, boiled in vegetable stock until tender, remove outer skin if you like, but I eat it as is!
a handful of mint leaves
1 wheel of feta cheese, crumbled
zest of 1 lemon
Freshly ground salt and pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
Extra virgin olive for drizzling
Gently toss the avo, asparagus, beans, mint, feta and lemon zest together.
Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil.
Season to taste.
Wishing you all a wonderful braai day with your loved ones.
Happy cooking(braaiing) and eat like there’s tomorrow!
