Young's Seafood

A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to attend a event organised by Young's The Seafood Experts along with some other lovely mummy bloggers I ❤ Motherhood, MeLikeyUK, Mummy Manda, Mixed Up Mummy & The Scrummy Mummy.

I was a little late to the event so missed the nutrition for families session hosted by Dr Clare Leonard but Mummy Manda post gives you the insight into fish nutrition and highlights the role that fish can play in a family's diet. I'm a big fan of fish and it's something I would like my son to enjoy too so knowing exactly how healthy it is and how it benefits my growing child really does make me want to introduce it to our family meals.

We were treated to a fish demo from Chef Surge Nollent and Seafood expert Duncan Lucas. Surge showed us 4 fantastic fast family recipes using a variety of fish that had been prepared by Duncan. We were shown how to fillet and prepare fish as well as being told where the fish is caught and how it is bought to our dinner tables right here in the UK.

Serge then split us into two groups 'team haddock' & 'team cod' where we had a go at making two of the fast family recipes that he had previously showed us. I highly suggest having a go at this quick and easy recipe - Smoked Haddock, Cheese and Tomato Bake. But if you don't fancy Haddock then why have a go at another one of the fantastic recipes listed over on the Young's Fish Recipes. If you do attempt one of the recipes why not let Young's know over on .

I came away with the event with not only a fantastic goody bag full of some of Young's fish products (and a bottle of wine!) but with a greater passion for seafood then I did before. Thank you Young's, you've really helped to introduce a love of fish into this household.
