Between school runs, supervising homework, and oh yeah, that job you have, it can be challenging to get a delicious and healthy meal on the table everyday.

I’m always on a mission to find quick and easy meals, all ready to satisfy everyone at the table—even my fussy eaters! If you’re on the lookout for new midweek recipes, don’t worry, I’ve got you! Today I’m sharing two of my favourite quick and easy meals to help bust weekday meal stress!

These meals’ heroes are McCain and Sea Harvest products, both leaders in the frozen food category. Their products are harvested at their peak, sustainably sourced and snap frozen within hours to maintain freshness and lock in nutrients.

Fish Burgers

This is an excellent alternative to the conventional fish and chips meal. Both the chips and fish are baked, meaning less oil! This meal is uncomplicated and supremely comforting. Thanks to McCain and Sea Harvest, all the chopping, crumbing and portioning has already been done for you—music to my ears!

Ingredients:

1 Box   Sea Harvest Hake Bake, Lemon and Herb

1 cup   Mayonnaise

2          Gherkins, finely chopped

½         Red onion, finely chopped

1tbsp   Parsley, finely chopped

1tbsp   Mustard

1tsp     Lemon juice

250g    McCain Texan BBQ Oven Chips

1cup    Lettuce leaves

1          Tomato, sliced

¼          Cucumber, Sliced

6          Burger buns, toasted

            Salt and pepper

Method:

Preheat the oven and prepare the Sea Harvest Hake Bake and McCain Texan BBQ Oven chips based on packet instructions. While the fish and chips are cooking, you may create your sauce by combining the mayo, gherkins, onion, parsley, mustard, and lemon juice. Mix well, add salt and pepper and set aside. Assemble your burger and serve with your Crispy McCain Chips!

Fish Finger Tacos

This is a low effort dinner or lunch that comes together in less than 30 minutes! Once again, the main ingredients in this meal are McCain and Sea Harvest products. One of the benefits of using frozen vegetables and fish is that they have a longer shelf life than fresh produce, so there’s less wastage, meaning you get more bang for your buck! And you always have a quick meal-time solution in the freezer! 

Ingredients:

8          Sea Harvest Fish Fingers

2cups   McCain Mexican Stir Fry

2tbsp   Sweet and sour sauce

8          Mini tortillas, lightly toasted

1          Fresh lime to serve

Method:

Prepare the Sea Harvest Fish Fingers and McCain Mexican Stir Fry as per packet instructions. 

Once cooked, add sweet and sour sauce with a pinch of salt and pepper, toss and remove from heat. Lay the tortillas flat. Add approximately 1 tsp of McCain Stir Fry, followed by a fish finger down the center. Squeeze over some fresh lime, and wrap up the loose end of the tortilla and enjoy!
