Fried Fish, Snowpeas and a Yogurt and Walnut Dip : Low Carb



Did you know ... Snow peas are also known as Chinese pea pods since they are often used in stir-fries. They are flat with very small peas inside; the whole pod is edible, although the tough "strings" along the edges are usually removed before eating. Snow peas are mildly flavoured and can be served raw or cooked.

We like to eat them, and they do go so well with fish, so when I saw this recipe I thought ... yum!

Ingredients:
Serves Four
7g carb per serving
1¾ lbs / 800g white fish
½ teaspoon salt
3 oz. / 75g butter
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2⁄3 lb / 300g snow peas

Yogurt and walnut dip:
1 cup / 225ml Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 oz. / 50g walnuts
½ teaspoon lemon, zest
salt and pepper
See instructions on Diet Doctor site here

Tips:
Of course, if preferred snow peas can be replaced with other low-carb vegetables such as courgette/zucchini, cauliflower or broccoli.

Make good use of the leftover lemon juice! Feel free to sprinkle a few drops over the fish if you’re looking for an extra punch of citrus flavour!

... flowers can brighten up any day of the week ...
Wishing all readers a Happy Weekend.

All the best Jan

Good Morning, The flower bouquet is so cheerful. We love fish. Thanks for the recipe. I confess, I've never prepared snow peas at home. I'll have to try some this spring/summer.

I grow snow peas in my summer vegetable garden. I like them better than regular peas. I'm always on the lookout for good recipes involving them, and this is a wonderful recipe even this vegetarian can appreciate and try. I love that you shared this with us Jan.

Also thanks for letting me know that "half and half" is also known as "Single Cream." I think my European friends can now understand what I'm talking about. I gave you credit for teaching it to me, too.

Kezzie said...

I didn't know these were what snow peas were! I thought they were Mange tout!

Phil Slade said...

Never heard of Snowpeas but I guess they are very closely related to mange-tout?

Hi Phil, many thanks for your comment and question.

Words from this article here explain more about snow peas, snap peas, sweet peas, and mangetout. How are they different from one another? How are they prepared for cooking?

Peas: small, round and green; sold fresh, frozen, dried or canned.

Snow peas: edible whole pods with unripened peas inside; pods rather flat; sold fresh or canned; called chicharo or sitsaro in the Philippines.

Snap peas: like snow peas, edible whole pods with unripened peas inside; pods rounder than snow peas; sold fresh or canned.

Mangetout: a French term for “eat all” refers to both snap peas and snap peas and is descriptive of the characteristics of both of having edible pods.
