Fried Sea Bass and Mango Salad

I love Sea Bass and think this zesty and spicy mango salad goes perfectly with the fish when it is fried until golden and crispy. I like to serve it with black rice. (To make it I pop 1/2 cup of black rice and 1/2 cup of jasmine rice in my rice cooker with 1 and 1/2 cup of water.)

Sea bass mango salad

Recipe for 2 people:
1-2 whole sea bassĀ (1/2 a fish per person for a lighter meal)
1 ripe mango
1-2 birds eye chillies (1/2 a chilli for a mild taste)
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp granulated sugar
1 clove of garlic
A large handful of coriander
Vegetable oil for frying
A pinch of salt for extra crispy fish

Method:

Score three lines on to each side of the Sea Bass and fry in a saucepan or frying pan of vegetable oil on a medium to high heat. Add a sprinkle of salt to the oil for extra crispy fish.

After a few minutes turn the fish and cook the other side.

When both sides are golden and crispy, set on a couple of sheets of kitchen roll to absorb any oil that seeps out.

Using the special peeler (pictured below) peel the mango as close to the pip as possible. If you don’t have a similar peeler, cut the mango in to thin slices.

Finely chop the garlic and birds eye chilli(es).

Pound the garlic and chilli using a pestle and mortar. Add the fish sauce, lime juice and granulated sugar.

Sprinkle on the coriander on top of the mango, add the dressing and serve with the fish and rice.

Day toNight OOTD

Day toNight… Do you like what I did there? šŸ˜‰ In my recent Primark Mummy Haul I mentioned that I was on the hunt for a pair of wet look leggings and hurrah, I have found quite a few. This inspired me to create a Day to Night OOTD as it is my birthday this month and this is the type of Autumnal outfit I would like to wear all day… And night!

Day To Night

Leather Look Leggings,Ā White Cable Knit Jumper,Ā Fringe Ankle Boots, Black and White Blouse, Quilted Cross Body Handbag, Rimmel Kate 30 Lipstick

TheĀ leggings I chose were from New Look as not only were they high waisted which is ideal for us mummies who aren’t quite comfortable inĀ low rise trousers but they are really reasonably priced. I decided that wet-look leggings are not the type of thing I would splurge on as I probably would only wear them in to town or on a night out. Let’s face it, it’s not the type of thing you would wear to baby sensory is it?

I absolutely adore thisĀ Cable Knit JumperĀ from Topshop. It looks so cosy and perfect for snuggling on all these colder days we are having at the moment. Underneath, I have chosen thisĀ Black and White Blouse from Dorothy Perkins but I should warn you that they have a promotion at the moment andĀ it seems to be selling out quick. If you like it click through ASAP.

I have chosen the following three accessories as I think they can be worn all day. TheĀ Ankle Boots have fringe detail to glam up your look and the handbag is small enough to carry around if you’re out with the kids and a buggy. Lastly, to glam up your look, I really recommend this shade of lipstick from Kate Moss’ Rimmel collection. It featured in my recent Blogtober post.

I hope you like this Day to Night OOTD as much as I do. I think it might be a bit daring for some people and I definitely think I would need a bit of confidence to wear it but if you do find the courage, I am sure you will be a gorgeous little head turner. Let me know if you try it out or have done in the past. Bx
