I love herring and fresh mackerel. How would you cook it in oatmeal?

My Mum always used oatmeal if frying fish.  She just rolled the fish in the meal then fried it.

I'll try that again!

See this recipe on the Hamlyn site that Ruth found:

http://www.hamlynsoats.co.uk/recipes050017.htm

and a whole host of other recipes which sound brill - perhaps might even do some trials for the vegetarian options on my stall ......... Ok

I want to try the dumpling one and the soup and possible the parsnip croquettes!  Oats are the way forwards! 

Oh - by the time I got home yesterday was too tired to do the cauli cheese with oaty topping so I'll give it a go over the weekend hopefully.

Oh, Ruth, I saw those, and wondered if it was do-able tonight, as I have some parsnips in the freezer.

However, hubby said he fancied some fish tonight, so not sure if they go with fish, but the very thought of parsnip croquettes .... mmmm Ok

If you spice them up a bit they might not be so sweet and parsnip-like and go better with fish?

I'll try that again!

Might try that another time - he has asked for chips and peas, as the fish is sole, and I will egg and breadcrumb the sole, so he's probably right.

What about this (parsnip thing-y going on here .... Smile)

... they do look rather good. Ok

Oh, and also, I have made these - very good indeed:

... and I froze some of them too, for those occasions when something a little different is needed.

Those parsnip recipes look marvellous, especially the one with caramelised onions.  I think I might have to start a recipe folder here on Phyllis.  In fact, I shall do it as soon as I've read all the red messages.  Thanks for those. 

I'll try that again!

They both sound fab, nice to know you can freeze the second one as well.

Enjoy the weekend.  Big_Hug

When I was in Oban today, I bought some mussels, some langoustine tails, some hot smoked trout and crab claws. We had it all with lots of salad and jersey royals. It was a lovely meal, finished with some cheese bought in a wonderful deli in Oban.

What a delicious meal!  All my favourite elements there.

I've been watching the Oban Web-cam:

I did so enjoy my time there. Magic

I'll try that again!

Tonight I shall roast a chicken with Tarragon, lemon and parsley butter under the skin.  I have some Jersey Royals too - and watercress.  I hope I can eat more than I usually do...Roll_Eyes
