On Monday night I made Dijon Cod and veggie bundles from Campbell’s. Mine did not look like this and I didn’t like the recipe so I didn’t bother to photograph it. These are the issues that occur in my kitchen – hissy fits about how I have plated dishes.
1. Big surprise, the vegetables didn’t cook. Sweet potatoes take a long time to cook – longer than the 20 minutes the recipe called for. The green beans barely softened so the entire dish was crunchy and raw. I think this ruined the whole meal for me.
2. Brown rice fail.
3. The mustard flavour wasn’t as strong as I would have liked it to be. And I didn’t use Dijon mustard, I used hot house deli mustard because that was what was in my fridge. There is a mustard shop in St. Lawrence market that I would like to check out soon and get some different types of mustard.
4. The fish was really nicely cooked though – it was juicy and flaky. I don’t cook enough fish and I really should because it’s easy and delicious. I like to cook food that if I under cook it I won’t die – beef and fish are pretty much the only foods that fill this category.
5. I think I would like this meal more if I had cooked all the components separately and then just plated the dish accordingly.
Overall I wasn’t delighted or blown away by this recipe so I will not be making it again.
