Baked Fish

500g white fish (we used cream dory, cut into 4 portions)
3 egg whites
¼ cup light mayonnaise
1tbsp Dijon mustard
Salt & pepper

Beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold in mayo, Dijon, salt, pepper.
Spread on top of fish and bake at 220°C for 20 minutes. Fish will flake easily. This is great served with broccoli.

Serve with: Quinoa pilaf
Lots of people have heard of quinoa and would like to try it but they don’t really know how to cook it. The answer? Cook it in a rice cooker with plenty of seasoning

1 cup quinoa, washed and drained (there are two cups in the packet)
1 tbsp butter
½ vegetable stock cube
1 shallot, diced
A handful of sultanas
1¼ cup water

Melt the butter in the rice cooker. Add stock cube, shallot, sultanas and quinoa. Stir for one minute then add water.
Put the lid on and when the rice cooker goes off, take the lid off and fluff with a fork.
Wait a minute and fluff again.
