Fish and chips goes seasonal – a healthy winter variation

Fish and chips - healthy winter seasonal variation

Fish and chips or fish and salad are hard combinations to deter from, but when you’re looking for a healthy option come winter, fish and vegetables can definitely work. This is a very British influenced variation, with an Asian flavour that brings warmth and flavour which make this winter dish sing! Healthy, seasonal eating doesn’t get much better than this.

You’ve likely heard of the British favourite – fish and mushy peas, but what about another classic British vegetable – Brussel sprouts?! Don’t write off this delicious vegetable until you’ve tried it this way. And who needs potato chips or fries with their fish when you’ve got the earthy, creamy taste of roasted cauliflower salads and crunchy almonds?!

This random but incredibly complimentary combination is a new favourite of mine and I hope you enjoy this seasonal winter variation of fish and vegetables as much as I do.
