Fish, Brussels and Peas

One for the days when cooking is too much of a chore, this dinner of Fish, Brussels and Peas is very easy to prepare using a steamer. Add potatoes to make it complete. Well, almost because there is a little more to the finished dish than is obvious.
Now the ingredients for this are basically from the freezer. It is, after all, supposed to be an easy meal to prepare for those in a bit of a hurry. Plus I love eating Brussels but I hate preparing them. That makes the frozen version an easier option in my house.
Read on to find out how I make this fishy dish and the twist that comes at the end.

Fish, Brussels and Peas

Serves 2


  • 2 pieces frozen White Fish about 200g/6oz each
  • 6-8 small Potatoes
  • 8-12 Brussels or Button Sprouts
  • 4-5 Tbsp Peas
  • Salt
  • ½ tsp Mint


  1. Set the steamer up so that it has enough water for 30-40 minutes.
  2. Wash the potatoes then cut away any blemishes. No need to peel. Then halve and put into the bottom tray of the steamer.
  3. Add the brussels in alongside the potatoes.
  4. Put the two fish pieces into the second steamer level.
  5. Add the peas alongside the fish.
  6. Sprinkle the mint plus a little salt over the fish and peas. The flavour of both will work down into the potato and brussels when things are cooking.
  7. Cover the slow cooker and allow the food to cook for 30-40 minutes. The exact time to use will depend on your appliance but 30 worked with mine. Either set the timer on the steamer and listen for it or watch the clock.
  8. Once the steamer is done then dinner is ready to serve. Very carefully remove the food from the steamer and divide evenly onto two serving plates. All ready so sit down and enjoy the meal.

Add some sauce?

Things are a little dry for my taste in the picture above. Some sauce is needed to moisten everything. So, as it happened, I had some curry sauce. I could even get a bowl of it into the steamer so it cooked with everything else. The end result was great.


Of course, you can use several different flavours of sauce with this dish. The choice is totally yours.
