For a long period of my life, I wasn’t the biggest fan of fish (or even food in general) but it was always part of my diet as my mum cooks it a lot. From baked to grilled, fried, you can find fish on my mum’s table all the time. I guess it helps that she can get fresh fish quite easily but even when she can’t, frozen fish will show up 🙂
Along the years, I started to appreciate the goodness of fish and it become a regular at my table too. The only difficulty is to get it really fresh and we have to rely on the fisheries and supermarkets that claim to have fresh fish. But just like my mum, I choose frozen fish sometimes. And I don’t usually get disappointed.
At the moment, what I’m finding difficult is the fact that, although my boyfriend likes fish (he likes anything to be honest), he finds it a bit hard to deal with whole fishes because of the bones. So I opt a lot more for asking my fishmonger to fillet the fish for me. But in this occasion I had to take advantage of these 2 beautiful fishes and I made Oven Baked Awrat – And it was a delicious meal, believe me 🙂
