Before I get onto the recipe and our general update, as Lynne and I have now returned from our glamping pod holiday in Wales, I do need to make an apology to those of you who follow the blog by receiving the mailer to your inbox whenever I post a new recipe.
Sadly I was informed before we went to Wales that these mailers were not going out and on returning from Wales and after further investigation I noticed that the “Subscribe to NeilsHealthyMeals” option had disappeared. 🙁
I’ve now re-instated it, and I’m hoping this was the problem and that with this post being published the emails will re-start, however if they don’t, I will need to investigate again, sorry about that. 😳
Holiday In Wales
So we spent a fantastic week, last week, staying at the Cringeod Holiday Park in Wales.
We drove down from Glasgow on Monday, ambled about the old market town of Machynlleth on Tuesday, went wine tasting at the Kerry Vale Vineyard on Wednesday and took a trip on the Welshpool and Llanfair light railway on Thursday before driving home on Friday.
I love to cook on my little camping stove (as you can see) when we go away.
On Tuesday we got some fantastic Welsh lamb from a local butcher in Machynlleth.
It was easy to put together a tasty lamb casserole, with some local farm organic green beans and to have it simmer away on my little stove for just over an hour as I sat enjoying my glass of wine. (As you can see 🙂 ).
Eating and cooking outside adds a whole new taste and experience especially when you can find such great local produce.
I lost Lynne on Thursday at the railway trip we did, only to find her hiding in this railway carriage!
We both had a really wonderful relaxing time. My only gripe being the fact that the Holiday Park advertises Wi-Fi and it is there, but it was really intermittent and I struggled to get any constant and reliable connection on my mobile or tablet.
I don’t like to be without these things and the 3G coverage was pretty sparse, as I thought it would be, being in the middle of nowhere!
It just goes to show you how much technology plays a part in everything nowadays, even holidays! But maybe that’s just me; what about your thoughts? But of course it didn’t in any way stop our / my enjoyment of the week, it would have been silly to have let that done so.
Tips For Making This Grilled Fish Provencal Recipe
Although this grilled fish Provencal is a simple dish to make, careful attention should be paid at the time of cooking the dish.
Depending on the thickness of your white fish fillets or even the ripeness of your tomatoes could mean these cook at different times.
You might want to grill the fish partially first, then add the tomatoes or vice versa.
My grilled fish Provencal could be one of your recommended 2 portions of fish per week, as per the food groups advice page.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this grilled fish provencal that I adapted from the traditional French recipe to reduce the fat, keep the costs down and to make it as simple as possible.
