Bacon-wrapped Angelfish Goodness

Here’s another Masterchef-inspired angelfish dish.

Simply brilliant – I’ve wrapped everything else in bacon,  but never thought of doing fish… And let me tell you – you have got to try it!

{I think bacon is like butter, it makes everything tastes good! Not that you need to change the taste of angelfish, but it works brilliantly together.}

Here’s what you’ll need:

4 angelfish fillets

8 rashers of streaky bacon


Sweet potatoes




Wrap each fish fillet in 2 rashers of bacon – you don’t need to season the fish at all, because the bacon is already salty.

Fry the fish parcels in a bit of butter until they’re cooked through and a nice golden colour.

Dice the sweet potato and place in a glass casserole. Add a little bit of water, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Add a knob of butter and cook in the microwave for about 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are soft and squiggy.
You don’t need to add any sugar, as the sweet potatoes are naturally sweet – combined with the cinnamon & nutmeg, it’s a match made in heaven!

Stir-fry the spinach in some butter until wilted.

Serve the fish with the spinach and sweet potatoes – ah, pure delight! The cinnamon and nutmeg definitely gives this dish an exotic feel and flavour and turns it into total comfort food.



Enjoy! x
