Posh Fish Finger Sandwich

So right now, I’m guessing most of you guys in uni or studying are in the middle of exams. If not, congrats on finishing this year, so go out and have some fun this summer and try out some of my other recipes now you have time! ;D

Now if you are living away from home by yourself, I’m pretty sure you don’t really have time to make a fancy shmancy dinner or even spend more than 1 hour to cook something. With that in mind, here is something which is classically a fast and simple meal, a fish finger sandwich. But, because I like to add my usual twists and fazzaz with recipes I present to you a ‘Posh Fish Finger Sandwich’.

Don’t let the name fool you, this is as simple as any normal fish finger sandwich, only difference here is the ingredients. So…enjoy!

Cheesy Tuna Melts!

So sorry for the lack of posts recently, just been so busy, especially with exams and what not coming up.

Anyway, even with my busy schedule, I’d thought I would give you all a simple and quick dish for when you want something quick and filling at the same time.

We’re going with the classic ‘Tuna Melts’. Yes, I know! How exciting can a tuna melt get? Well, if you know anything about me by now (or even if you don’t…which you should >.<), I usually have some sort of personal twist to whatever I make, which I am going to share with all you guys.

So here goes!

Magnificent Moules Marinière

I just realised I don’t give you guys enough vegetarian dishes nor have I actually given you a nice fish dish here at My Uni Kitchen. So here it is, a lovely French style Mussels in a wine sauce!

Before you say mussels are too expensive or they’re too fancy for me, you may actually be wrong. Not only is it so simple to make, some local fishmongers or your local supermarket may sell some nice fresh mussels for a good price (About £6-8/kg). And just think about it, that pretty much costs the same or even less than a large pizza from Dominoes or if you’re still not convinced just share the cost with someone and cook together. 😀

Now, you need to make sure they are fresh and live before you buy them as 1) It will taste a lot nicer and 2) You will save yourself from getting food poisoning…yehhhh (“^_^). You can test this out by giving them a bit of tap if they have their shells open. If they are alive, they will close their shells. If they’re dead, they’ll sit there like a brick and not close at all, which is your cue to walk away and get something else for another recipe on this blog.

So, don’t be scared or put off by mussels just because you may think they’re too expensive or really hard to cook. They’re actually pretty decent in terms of price and very easy to cook. And by the end of it, you’ll get a dish which you can pass off for a fancy restaurant dish, and trust me everyone will be mighty impressed.
