Clementine and cod curry (or salmon, or even shrimp)

Clementine and cod curry

Save those organic clementine peels! This is an excellent fish curry by Nadiya Hussain (from her tv show The Chronicles of Nadiya) that is quick and easy to do. I’ve made this twice within the last 2 weeks – first with cod, then again with salmon – and all I can say is that it’s a dish to perk up an otherwise monotonous winter day. The flavor from the clementine peel (you don’t need to scrape off the white pith) has no hint of bitterness and the spices she uses are commonly stocked at the supermarket. The only change I made was to use one chile pepper instead of two. I’m looking forward to trying this with the biggest shrimp I can find. Nadiya’s recipe can be found here: www.bbc.co.uk/food/…./clementine_and_cod_curry

First snow of the year

First snow of 2017

But not enough to make a snowman, not even snowballs! It’s been pretty quiet around the house after a rather miserable start to the new year, but the coughfest is over and in some way or other, we will make up for lost holiday time. Winter has been colder than usual with below zero nights, however, it is the snow, or rain, that we desperately need to properly get us through spring.
