Economical Family Recipes For Fish & Seafood

I love fish and seafood and I would cheerfully eat it in lieu of meat any day.  However, fish in Australia is quite expensive. 

Considering we live in Bunbury, which is a port city on the Indian Ocean side of Australia, one would think fish would be relatively cheap.  You couldn't be more wrong.  Most of the seafood we see in our supermarkets is imported, which is such a pity.  Only this morning I saw crab patties at a local fish shop - $2.95 each and boy were they small.  Jeremy and Ian would have eaten at least five each.  We need to go crabbing and then I shall invent a crab patties recipe of my own. I try to cook fish twice a week so that we at least get the vital nutrients that fish supplies.  I choose from:


Aboriginal Fish
Exquisite tastes of lime juice and honey

Baked Lemon Fish Fillets
Very quick to prepare and cook

Creamed Corn and Salmon Bake
Mix it all together in one bowl and bake for 45 minutes

Creamy Seafood and Rice
This recipe actually uses a tin of cream of chicken soup
