Tuna-Macaroni Slaw

Date tried: October 2, 2012

Time needed: 1 hour

This can be assembled quickly once the macaroni is cooked, but it needs to be chilled well. On a hot day, it can be made in the cool of the morning and save working over a hot stove in the heat of the afternoon. Great for a summertime picnic or pot-luck as well.

This is my favourite way to serve fish fillet.  Absolutely plain, flavoured only with lemon and white wine, and occasionally a bit of dill or rosemary. Quick and simple to make.

Machhi Patia

Source: Indian Recipes Under 30 Minutes
Made: October 27, 2013
Yield: 4-6 servings
Time to make: 30 minutes.

Despite the number of steps (grate onions, grind seeds for paste, purée tomatoes, steam rice) most can be completed while the fish is marinating.  Add another 15 minutes cooking time and your meal is ready.  Fish fillets steamed in a thick, spicy tomato gravy.  And really good!  I am glad I have leftovers; can’t wait to have this again.
