Niall McKenna's spicy fried seabass and crab fried rice

Many people don’t like to cook fish at home but these recipes will help you make it a family favourite, promises Niall McKenna

It’s no surprise that beef is the most popular item on the menu in my restaurant, but it’s closely followed by our fish dishes. For decades we have had a great longstanding relationship with Ewing’s fishmongers in Belfast, sourcing fresh local produce. But while it is a popular choice on our menu, we find that people don’t like to cook fish at home.

At the cookery school our fish and shellfish class is one of our most popular, and as a result we plan on introducing more fish cooking classes this year, incorporating different spices and cooking techniques.

One of the things I love about cooking fish at home is the speed. It is ready in minutes and can be accompanied by grains, potatoes, salads, noodles or even rice. If you are looking to add more fish to your diet, try these two simple recipes and see how you get on.
