i’ve been watching (and enjoying) the tv series to accompany hugh fearnley-whittingstall’s latest book, three good things, the idea of the book is simple – a lot of great recipes have three ingredients at their heart. in the show three chefs each choose “two good things” to accompany the third, a shared ingredient. they then cook their dishes which are judged and at the end of the week, after 5 shows, a winner is crowned.
each week there is a theme and the fish dishes were some of my favourites. the winning mackerel dish was hugh’s mackerel with rhubarb and oatmeal.
super simple – mackerel fillets are dipped in oatmeal (i used rolled oats as they were all i had) and then fried in a little oil; this is accompanied by rhubarb which has been lightly poached with some sugar and thyme.
thoroughly delicious and well worth a try.
