Febuary’s $7 meals already this year is going so quickly. This month i have gone for a rich and tasty Tomato Soup as a starter and some lovely Fishcakes. I love to make my own Tomato Soup because i like it to be so creamy and rich. Some of the tinned varities can be pretty awful.
I like to make Fishcakes because over here in Portugal Fish is one of there main ingredients that they eat so that means there is a great variety of fish to choose from. In the recipe i have put cod but if you find this expensive any white fish will do. I like to use catfish they maybe abit watery but they are very tasty.
