The big V-day is almost upon us and this year, Peter and I will be switching the fancy restaurants for a romantic night in.

They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so this Valentine’s Day I’ll be getting saucy in the kitchen and cooking up a storm with the oh so tasty The Saucy Fish Co.

We both adore fish and seafood so for this Valentine’s we’ll be opting for our favourite fish, sea bass in a beurre blanc sauce. Delicious!

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Tuesday, I know I’ll be working and therefore cooking in the easiest way possible for this #mumboss, is key. This is why I’m such a huuuuuge fan of The Saucy Fish Co. – I love how they combine succulent fresh fish with a fuss-free, flavoursome sauce.

Vicki Psarias of Honest Mum shares the perfect Valentine's Day dish of Saucy Fish Co.

There is a huge range of fish and sauces to choose from including salmon with chilli, lime and ginger dressing, sea bream with sun blushed tomato dressing and squid & king prawns with chorizo, with a sherry and herb sauce. My mouth is watering just typing this! *emoji drool face.

I’ll be serving our sea bass dish with roasted garlic new potatoes on top of a bed of leeks, asparagus and petite pois. It’s so easy to prepare, I had to share my recipe below.

I hope you enjoy x

    The salmon and cod fishcakes with the Heavenly Hollandaise centre looks amazing. I would pair these with roasted new potatoes, and a rocket salad.

    All of it. X2.

    I don’t eat fish, but my hubby and two boys do so this would be an amazing treat for them as I don’t often buy it.
