    What fish did you use? I've had a go at fish curry a few times, but I find that the fish just sort of 'melts' into the sauce. I think last time I tried to make one I used trevaly, which is cheap, has a good flavour, and has fairly firm flesh that puts up a bit of resistance to falling apart in the pan.

      Pollack, it flakes nicely when its done.

      If I had the choice i'd use Gurnard, Bream, Dogfish, Mullet, Trigger fish, Mackerel and Eel, not necessarily in that order.

          Stir fry veg (our own peppers, leeks, carrots, spring onions) with Mrs W's sweet and sour sauce, and chicken. Followed by Mrs W's pear and apple crumble. Pretty darn good too!

                    Very similar to yours. :blue thumb:

                    we had guests for dinner.

                    Carrot, courgette, lentil and coriander soup with hot crusty rolls.
                    Stir fry chicken done with spring onions, garlic, lots of fresh ginger, chilli, celery, courgette, carrot, mangetout, baby corn, runner beans (just picked the last 5lb of them), mushrooms and served with rice.
                    Apple crumble, fresh conference pears, blackberry mousse.

                    Most ingredients were home grown.

                      In the oven as I type:
                      Half a shoulder of local lamb, braised celery and Indian style roast tatties* and on the hob some brussel sprouts. Followed by Victoria plums and custard for me - not for Mr Namaste,
                      Jenny
                      * cook some floury pots until scuffed on the outside when shaken. In a pan, heat iol ( not Olive) until hot - chuck in a desert spoonful of Pancha Phoran and a teaspoon of Madras Curry Powder. Stir until seeds are popping then pour over Tatties in a roasting dish and get them crispy in the oven along with the lamb,

                          Roast shoulder of lamb, peas and carrots, broccoli, roast sweet potatoes and ordinary potatoes, I only use goose or duck fat for roasting, with gravy and mint sauce obviously, followed by apple sponge and custard.

                            Chicken breasts stuffed with chorizo and wrapped in Parma ham, sat on a wee dollop of creamed leeks. Herby roast tatties, collie cheese, caramelised shallots, and broad beans (my fave).

                            Pink grapefruit for pud - total cop out, but it cuts through all the fat that I just served up!!
