Last week I picked up some salmon portions in the reduced section for 50p each. We do not eat fresh fish very often as it’s usually so expensive. I asked for suggestions for a dish to cook on my blogs Facebook page and I was not disappointed, I wish I had picked up some more salmon now!
This dish was really simple to make. The rich sticky fish goes really well with the fresh tasting noodles. You may want to add more chilli powder if you prefer spicy food but the amount I put in was perfect for my children and my wussy self!

These are really cheap and easy to make, plus both my toddlers actually loved them (hurrah!!). I had a couple left over so they went into the freezer for another day. The fish paste is very budget friendly, they still taste just as delicious as ones with fresh fish.
Makes: 6 Cost: 32p each

I feel like I don’t eat enough fish. It’s so good for you and because I do not eat red meat, it is a great alternative. Fish can be expensive compared to meat but the cheapest and best place to buy it is your local fishmonger. If you don’t have a fishmonger near you, the fish counters at the supermarkets mark the price down just before shutting but you have to be quick! This recipe is supposed to be a take on a salmon en croute but that sounds far too posh for me so I will go with salmon slice! It is a bit more pricey than my normal meals but it’s a pay day treat!
Serves 2-4 depending on what you serve it with.
Costs £1.32 a serving

A few recipes ago I used some sea salad seaweed. I have had plenty left over so I’ve been trying to think of every day recipes that I can use it it because it’s so nutritious. It is optional to use the seaweed but I do recommend it!

When it comes to meal planning I always try and include one meal that includes fish. It seems expensive for the amount you actually get so I usually buy tinned. The town I used to live in had an amazing fishmonger, it was cheap, fresh and had so much more variety. Now I’ve moved and live no where near one! If your local supermarket has a fishmonger in store, check to see what time they close because they reduce any fish that they can not sell the next day. You maybe able to pick up some fish to use for your meal that day!
This meal costs £1.10 per serving.

I seem to talk about eating for myself or younger children a lot but I have yet to mention what my 8 month old eats. Weaning the first time round was confusing and actually quite scary! I didn’t have a clue what I was supposed to cook or what I had to feed a baby, but now I am confident to share with you what I do.
