Pirate's Treasure Trove Chest with Fish Nuggets & Potatoes

Prep time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 16-20 minutes Serves: 2 Skill level: Easy Peasy Recipe by: Seafish

A fab fun way to get kids to eat their fish and vegetables – pretend it's treasure - fish for gold, veg for jewels


The method

  1. Cut the fillets into small chunks (nuggets) and then dip them into the beaten egg before covering in breadcrumbs before placing them on a baking tray.
  2. Put the nuggets in a preheated over 200'C/400'F/Gas 6 for 15 - 20 minutes.
  3. Cook your potato waffles as per packet instructions in an oven while your nuggets are cooking.
  4. Heat some mashed potato - leftovers are perfect, or cook some potatoes and make some mash whilst the fish nuggets are cooking.
  5. To assemble the treasure trove chests: place a little mashed potato on a plate and add two potato waffles as a front and a back, pushing into the mash; cut the remaining potato waffle in half and make two sides, using mashed potato to "glue" together. Fill the chests with the remaining mash, before adding the "treasure" of cooked peas (emeralds), carrots (pieces of eight) and coley nuggets ( gold nuggets), serve with tomato ketchup.
  6. These will serve two children aged about 7 to 12 years old; or one "chest" will be sufficient if shared between two toddlers.
