Using Leftovers

Plaice with ‘Moqueca’ Sauce & Sweet Potato Chips

I had the sauce left from the stew a couple of weeks ago so froze it. I have a method now. Write the freezing date on the pack and write on the calender what it was. No more puzzled looks at random items in the freezer.

I also had some sweet potatoes left from something a couple of weeks ago which have lasted surprisingly well so here’s what we did:

Preparing:

  • Cut some sweet potatoes into chips (don’t peel)
  • Preheat the oven to 190ºc (fan)
  • Get the sauce, plaice, spinach and seasoning out

Making:

Boil the potatoes until just about done then transfer to a baking tray and bake for about 10-15 minutes.

Fry the plaice for a minute each side (I did it in the bacon fat pan from the previous night) then transfer to a baking tray, season and cook through – it won’t take long.

Warm the sauce through.

Serve on a bed of spinach.

Chilli & Baked Potato

As it’s leftover chilli, no explanation required…

In the morning I had made a note to buy some cheese but still forgot. I’m glad I did, it was lovely just served like this.
