    :jelous: Whilst a 'fishy' week is quite possibly my worst nightmare, iv decided to give it a go none the less, as my motivation seems to be the strongest its been in a while!

    Now, iv bought tuna steaks, canned tuna, a salmon fillet and 2 lots of cod.

    Im certain i already hate salmon, but im hoping for the best. :p

    i can stomach cod .. (iv bought lots of mushy peas to hide it under!) .. and i can manage tuna steaks as a one off. i can eat canned tuna fine though.. so im hoping i can just incorperate a tin or so into any pasta dish i might make, salad etc.


    i know its not as 'fishy' as some other fishy weeks you all may have done.. however as you may have guessed.. im not a fish fan.


    any tips, suggestions etc?

    dear god, promise me a weight loss at least! LOL

    fern, check out this recipe on my blog:

    Baked Salmon with Roasted Tomatoes and Butternut Squash | Slimming Eats - Slimming World Recipes

    It is delicious, trust me and you might even be surprised and decide you now like salmon. The most important thing is to not to overcook it.

    for the cod, how about using a HEb and covering it in homemde whole wheat breadcrumbs to serve with sw chips and peas or you could perhaps make a fish pie.

    I am not a great fan on tuna steaks, so that is one recipe I can't really help with. Although again make sure you dont overcook it or it will be horrible and dry.

    no it definately isnt really fishy, but then I dont find salmon that fishy, so is hard to say. Salmon is my favorite and I am not a big fish eater.

    Looks good, my OH makes the BEST Tuna ever! I think Fresh Tuna is GORGEOUS. He fries it in frylight with onions and salt, chilli and black pepper and then serves with a homemade salsa, salad and new spuds. It's so simple but delicious!

    Theres a teryaki salmon sauce that we do as a stir fry, that's YUM and syn free. I'll find the recipe if you want. :)

    Good luck! I end up losing 3- 3.5lbs and I'm so close to being a healthy weight and last time I did it i changed a regular 0.5-1lb loss to 3.5!!! :)

    Fern, like you I was no fish fan but I have done several fishy weeks and found quite a bit of fish that I would happily now eat in the process.

    Simple Salmon recipe is to pop a fillet into a tin foil "parcel" with some garlic granules, chilli flakes, salt and pepper and a splash of lime juice. Fold parcel to seal it up and lash in oven for about 20-25 minutes - prolly around 200 or gas 6-7. Have that with a load of veg, sw chips, or a salad and it's lush.

    Mackerel is also nice - and not too "fishy". It's the smell that gets me- trout is particularly vile smelling for hours after you cook it!!

    Good luck!

    I did it a few months ago and got a huge loss - after I got back from hols in Aug i think :rolleyes:
    The Jamie Oliver fish was the easiest and tastiest fish pie i've had and I'm pretty fussy only liking certain fish dishes too :
    http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world-recipes/159969-jamie-oliver-fish-pie-yummy-easy.html
    I also make a gorgeous prawn, choritzo and spincach curry which is now a weekly fav in our house:

    I felt the same as you Fern when I did my fishy week but hey guess what I ended up liking it.

    I found smoked haddock easy to take as the flavour is great.

    Several nights I used my cheese allowance and hex's to make a cheese and tomato sauce to smother the fish with. Just cook tinned tomatoes, melt the cheese in it and then give it a quick whiz in the blender for a smooth sauce. I used extra mature cheddar for a really cheesy flavour.

    I also made fish curry with hake. That was good too.

    Good luck Fern
