It has to be said, we are not great lovers of fish! Never-the-less, when you are eating a lot of meat it is easy to get tired of the same things over and over again. We are trying to be adventurous and have tried some wild duck legs, pheasant and partridge. Of course, we understand too that fish is very nutritious, so we try to include it at least twice a week in some form or another. Sometimes it's just a tin of salmon heated up in a pan of soup, or with salad in summer.
One thing I always struggle with and that's how to present the fish. Again we get tired of the same thing all the time. So here I have compiled for myself, as much as for anyone else, a list of five different ways to serve fish, of any kind, though I tend to use frozen fish from the supermarket. Salmon tends too, to be the most versatile. I pull out the crib sheet when I am planning the weeks menu, and I'm not trying to re-invent the wheel each time, neither do I have to be creative at that particular motive. When the time comes to cook the meal, I see what vegetables we have on hand and what's convenient to cook.
Once more, be adventurous in your choice of vegetables. Cauliflower rice goes well with fish meals, as do roasted vegetables. (That is not a GAPS web-site and so you will need to substitute fats you can tolerate to cook the rice.) Cougettes can be cut into 'noodles' and briefly cooked.
I find this handy little gadget great for knocking up quick 'spaghetti'. Vegetables that they wouldn't normally eat sliced normally, suddenly look attractive!
So here is my Fish Crib sheet. Download, print and laminate to make for easy meal planning!
