Simple food even the kids can cook - 1.

I decided during the summer holidays to start introducing my children to the art of cooking, so that one day when they are older they will be able to feed themselves and not rely on ready meals and the like.
Aimee is 5 and Corbin is 7 and they love the idea of learning to cook. They take in turns  - each of them cooking dinner for the family one night each week. Obviously I help them out with using the hob and oven and cutting with sharp knives. So here is the first of our food recipes they cooked.

Aimee Fish ( Herby fish bake ).

oven 190 degrees celsius.

white fish fillets ( pollack, cod, haddock )
4 tablespoons natural or greek yogurt
2 tablespoons red pesto
chopped parsley, dill or chives.

Place the fish in an ovenproof dish.
Mix the yogurt, red pesto and herbs together and spread over the fish.
Grill/Bake for 7-10 minutes

We had it with homemade chips , and fresh homegrown beans and courgettes and peas.
