I work in the seafood industry and a big part of my job is to try to get people to eat more fish more often - which is why we have launched our new website called Fish is the Dish. Make sure you check it out.
But I've been worried that a lot of people think seafood is expensive. So I've decided to put this to the test.
Here's my fist calculation.
Last night we had smoked mackerel on baked potatoes - based on a recipe from our fab chef Jaqueline O'Donnell from The Sisters restaurant in Glasgow.
I took my prices from Tesco.com today (25/10/11) and here we go:
|Per pack||Approx 1 serving|
WOW Less than £1.50 for a main meal - that's not bad at all.
Not only that but it was easy and super easy for a Monday night supper. I might be able to make a cheap cheesy beany potato for that cost but I'll tell you what, it won't taste as good and certainly won't be stacked with omega-3, selenium, iodine..... don't get me started.
Go on try it - and if you need a recipe mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
