Britain is going through very bad weather condition with lots of weather warnings…..strong winds and heavy snowfalls in many parts of the country. There are areas where thousands of homes were left without electricity due to the severe weather and transport disrupted. Imagine going through this freezing weather without heating! If that happens to Aberdeen, I think I will take the next flight home to hot Malaysia!

One of the best ways to go through this type of misery is to cook good food. Cooking keeps my kitchen warm while good food helps me to forget about the bad weather condition outside the four walls of my house.

I love to cook fish because not only is it delicious and healthy but also very quick to cook. Just the other day I made a very delicious fish stir fry dish with neeps and tatties. Now, that’s very Scottish names for swede and potatoes. I received some freshly diced neeps and tatties from Scotty Brand….such a thrill. They come in 500g packets and are available in Asda.

Scotland is celebrating Robert Burns’ night on the 25th of this month. I attended twice since I came. Robert Burns was Scottish poet and lyricist. During such event, his poetry will be read. Haggies and stovies will be served with Scottish oatcakes too. I cant take the traditional haggis. However I had tried the vegetarian haggies and I find them quite nice.

These neeps and tatties can be used to cook stovies or even mash. After cooking, just mash it with some butter, cream and seasoning. To make the mash more special, drizzle some whisky over the mash and enjoy. I’m going to try that soon.

Here’s my simple recipe for the Stir Fried Fish With Neeps And Tatties recipe.

Ingredients A

500g fresh fish (cut into bite size pieces)
1t salt
2T corn flour
a handful of coriander (chopped)

Pan fried fish

Pan fried fish

Mix up the fish with the salt and corn flour. Let it marinade 30 minutes. Heat up some oil in a fry pan and pan fry the fish on both side. Dish up. Coating the fish with corn flour prevents it from breaking up too much and also helps the fish to stay soft. It’s ok if some of it breaks up. I think it looks nicer….hehe

Ingredients B
2 big onions (peeled and cut into pieces)
1 knob of ginger (thinly sliced)

Fry onions, ginger and garlic

Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Fry the ginger until lightly golden. Then add the cut onions. Keep stirring until translucent.

Ingredients C (seasoning)
1T Korean bean paste
1T white wine
1t sugar
2/3t salt

Add all of Ingredients C to the onions. Stir to mix well.

Ingredients D
250g Scotty Brand nips and tatties (cook with some water for 12 minutes and drain)
1C water
1T corn flour

Neeps and tatties sauce

Neeps and tatties sauce

Mix the corn flour with the water and add to the frying pan. Keep stirring until the sauce boils.

Add neeps and tatties to the sauce

Add neeps and tatties to the sauce

Add the cooked neeps and tatties to the sauce. Mix well.

Add fish to the sauce

Add fish to the sauce

Then add the fish and the chopped coriander. Mix well and dish up. Serve while hot.

This dish is very good served with rice. Maybe even over noodles. If you like it spicy, just add some chopped chillies to it. Or maybe some chilli oil.

If you like, you can cook extra for the next day. I had some left over which I heated it up for lunch the next day. It tasted just as good.

Hope you are eating healthy and doing your regular exercise. Do enjoy each day and smile! Til then see you in my next post.

Adore fish the name “neeps and tatties”.
It has been snowing over here for 2 weeks…rather cold, but still acceptable.

Nami | Just One Cookbook  on January 22nd, 2013

We love fish, but being lazy myself I mostly cook in toaster oven… stir fry fish with coriander sounds good!

TasteHongKong  on January 22nd, 2013

Was also cooking a quick stir-fry with bean paste and onion this evening, but without any Scottish ingredients. I admire you at distance : ).

Mistletoe  on January 23rd, 2013

I never knew what neeps were until now. Actually had to google it b/c you said they were a Scottish term for swedes, but I didn’t know what those were either. Lol! And I never knew there was such a thing as vegetarian haggis. I’d try that. Haha. Kiddies and I love fish. This looks like a dish they’d actually enjoy, looks very yummy.
With all those weather warnings there, please do take care and drive safe when you’re out. No worries, if power failure, just come stay with me. You know you’re always welcome. Although it might be colder here than Aberdeeen even w/o heat. Haha! Take care!!

Sandra's Easy Cooking  on January 23rd, 2013

This sure looks delicious, Mary. I love simple meals too, and your fish and potatoes look tempting today. It’s still pretty cold around here so this would be my comfort food which I will make it today for my quick lunch. I am loving the seasoning! Have a wonderful week!

I agree. Good (comfort) food can really beat the stress out of the blustery cold winter. Interesting neeps and tatties. Never heard of them before.
