It’s Easter! The only time of year, many of us give up meat for Lent, which is refreshing in the beginning, but let’s face it, the adjustment soon becomes a chore, particularly when we start running out of meal ideas. Are you a Talapia fan? Well, look no further as Jerome has compiled this mouth-watering, quick and affordable fish recipe, just for you! I’m sure you’re well aware that fish is a great source of Omega 3.


1 Talapia fish fillet or substitute any fish you have at home (salmon, haddock fillet)
5 medium sized red potatoes
1 small to medium sized head savoy cabbage rinsed and cut into 6 wedges
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
200ml of double cream
5 cloves of garlic
1/4 sliced onion
5 sticks of fresh thyme
2 tblspns of olive oil
100ml of water


  1.  Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Wash and slice the red potatoes. Place them in a roasting tray and sprinke salt, black pepper to taste with sticks of thyme. Drizzle ingredients with olive oil and place in the oven for 15-20 mins.
  2. Preheat a pan with 2 tblspns of olive oil on stove to gas mark 4. Once the pan is heated, add the chopped savoy cabbage, sliced onion, and season with pinch of salt and black pepper. Add 100ml of water, then cover pan and let steam for 5-7 minutes.
