I made something so simple but so tasty I had to share it with you. I think fish is best cooked without fuss, and this glaze sticks to that rule with just two ingredients – maple syrup and soy sauce. Classic salty and sweet.
Teaming it up with oven chips and peas and sweetcorn may not look very classy, but this meant the boys shovelled it down their necks without so much as a “what’s THIS mummy?!”
If i’d sat it next to cous cous or rice, I’m not sure i’d have had the same success. Sometimes distraction is the best approach!
I used to really hate fish as a child, so it pleases me greatly when I can get my lads to eat things like salmon.
