Planned Leftovers with Fish (2)

Unlike my first post about fish leftovers, which included some serious advance planning to use a large, banquet sized fish which could give 15 or 20 people a main course, this one is about using a medium sized fish which could feed

Planned Leftovers with Beef (2)

Post-holiday indulgence

Admit it. A month after the big holiday binge and subsequent self-denying resolutions, it’s easy to feel deflated. Even if you neither binged nor made harsh resolutions, we’re still in the middle of a dreary season here in the northern

Fish cakes

Fish cakes are a fun and easy way to use up leftover bits of fish–whether you have an ordinary, everyday catch or a special one such as the sewin steak I’ve used here. You might find these fish cakes are
