Fish shouldn’t be a one-night affair. However, you must store leftover the fish properly and create a new dish for your family and friends.
The first thing to know about using leftover fish: Be careful with reheating. You must use direct heat, making it very gentle and very brief.
Here are 5 creative ideas to save money and add flavor to your leftover fish.
1. Fish pie
I don’t know about you, but fish pies are my favourite kind of pie.
2. Fish fried rice
Re-purpose leftover cooked rice by heating it up in a pan with vegetables, turmeric, and aromatics, then stir in flaked fish and greens until they're just warmed through.
3. Fish cake
Gently combine your fish with eggs, breadcrumbs, a bit of milk , and whichever vegetables, herbs and spices strike your fancy. Cook them through in a bit of oil or butter.
4. Fish salad
What else do you want for breakfast? Fish salad is very nutritious and easy to prepare.
5. Fish kehab
If all else fails, fish kebab is the old faithful -- just thread the fish pieces onto bamboo skewers.
