Cajun Fish and Mash Potatoes with Tenderstem



Rainbow trout is great for cooking because it is so versatile and light like cod or haddock. I tend to use Cajun seasoning for chicken but I haven’t used it for fish before.

I haven’t made mash potatoes in a long time either. Great tip is to add herbs and garlic paste for extra flavour. Finally, there is the Tenderstem, which can be adapted and other vegetables such as asparagus can be used. Prep time is not too long as long as the fish is fresh. Asparagus is another great veg to eat with this too.

Prep: 20 mins (longer if you have to let the fish defrost)
Cooking: 1 hour 20 mins.
