Walking on the streets of London, you will wonder why there are so many snack stalls serving poached eggs, nuts, dark chocolate, porridge… the menu list is endless. These snacks are highly purchased by casino punters who want to remain focused during the game sessions.

This is also applicable to online casino gamers.

Nutritionists have carried out a research and found out that it is true! There are some meals that can help a player to remain high-spirited and alert for long hours.

Of all the researched foods, fish topped the list. Other foods you can enjoy before, during or after the game are nuts, kale, green salad and others.

In this article, you will learn how to prepare your own fish and also some of the best slots to be played after this delicious meal.

Don’t worry about where to play slots as I have included a couple of 10 top online casinos in the UK.

We have smoked haddock and salmon pie on the menu. Let’s start.

Remember: Fish is very rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. This substance is essential for reducing inflammatory reactions; it enhances reasoning and keeps your brain alert for long hours. It also helps in Cardio Vascular System (CVS), hence, your brain will receive enough blood all throughout to keep you up.


INGREDIENTS

  • Floury Potatoes- 1kg
  • Clove – 1
  • Salmon – 225g
  • Un dyed smoked Haddock- 225g
  • Eggs – 4
  • Four – 25g
  • Fresh bay leaves- 2
  • Creame – 150ml
  • Fat milk – 425ml
  • Nutmeg – pinch
  • Unsalted butter – 120g
  • Black Pepper
  • Onions – 1
  • Anchovy Essence – 1 tsp
  • Parmesan – 12g
  • English Mustered Powder- 1 tsp
  • Thyme leaves
  • Gruyere Cheese
  • Parsley – chopped
  • Green Salad

 

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Put the floury potatoes in boiling and cover. Simmer until they become tender.

III.    Poach the fish fillets

  1. Pour 425ml of full-fat milk into a pan together with fresh bay leaves, double creame, grated nutmeg and a full clove. Put the salmon and haddock fillets and poach until the fish becomes soft.
  2. Remove the fish fillets and place them in a bowl and wait for them to cool down. Flake the fillets to separate the bones and skin from the flesh. Strain the liquid after poaching and reserve it somewhere.
  3. Remove the potatoes from the heat once they soften and drain excess water. Return them to heat to dry out and remember to shake them occasionally to avoid sticking to the pan or burning. Ponder the potatoes until they are smooth. Beat in 60g of unsalted butter and season to taste.

VII.    Put the remaining butter in a hot non-stick pan to melt. Cook the diced onions until they are soft. Stir the flour and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes while stirring continuously.

VIII.    Add the poaching liquid in potions and whisk after adding every portion. Lower the heat and gently simmer for 10 minutes and stir until it has thickened.

  1. Boil the eggs for 8 minutes and drain them in cold water. Gently remove the egg shells and place them in a dry bowl.
  2. Take the hard-boiled eggs, anchovy essence, thyme, mustard powder and parsley and fold them into the white sauce. Fold them in the flaked fish and season to taste. Turn off the heat and allow time to cool.
  3. Put the mixture in an oven-proof dish and allow the skin to form. Spread the crushed potatoes evenly on the fish mixture. Add Gruyere and Parmesan cheese by sprinkling them on top.

XII.    Bake it in the oven for 30-40 minutes until it turns golden brown.

Serve with green salad.

Chickpea and Sumac Salad Recipe – 4 Smart Points

Chickpea and Sumac Salad

One of the best things about living in Southern California is the diversity of foods and restaurants. Growing up in PA, my diet was pretty American standard. But after moving to Los Angeles, a whole new world of foods and flavors was opened to me, and I’ve never been happier. Middle Eastern foods are almost always a hit with me, and after dining at a Turkish restaurant recently, I discovered this super simple, yet incredibly flavorful Chickpea and Sumac Salad Recipe. The key in this dish is to really work that sumac into the onions with your hands. It takes that bitter edge off of the onions while making them both a little sweet and a little tart. Combined with tender garbanzo beans, tangy lemon juice, and bright mint and parsley, this said packs a big flavor punch. It’s loaded with fiber and protein, which makes it really quite satisfying for just 4 Smart Points. If you eat vegan, this salad is sure to become a staple in your meals. But we are meat eaters, and I love serving this salad with my Moroccan Beef and Lamb Meatballs. So good!!!

Mexican Beef and Zucchini Skillet Recipe – 7 Smart Points

Mexican Beef and Zucchini Skillet

Here’s another amazingly good low carb Weight Watchers recipe that was a big hit with my family. I had a few extra zucchini on hand recently that I didn’t want to go to waste, so I put together this Mexican Beef and Zucchini Skillet Recipe for a quick, easy and healthy dinner. All the ingredients are inexpensive and are almost always on hand in my pantry. For the kids, I served this over some brown rice and they loved it! Surprisingly, they gave me no grief about the zucchini being in there. I really love this dish with the ground beef, even though it adds extra fat and calories. The flavor of the meat works nicely with the mild zucchini. But if you want to trim this recipe down a couple of Points, you could use ground chicken or turkey instead. With the beans and zucchini, it’s bulked up very well, and is absolutely satisfying. This Mexican Beef and Zucchini Skillet recipe is perfect for busy weeknight dinners. And leftovers freeze nicely, too! Enjoy.

Crab Cake Waffles Recipe – 2 Smart Points

Crab Cake Waffles

Lately, there’s been a serious waffled food trend happening on Instagram. Apparently, it’s pretty easy to cook a lot of different foods on a waffle iron! This is great because it allows your food to cook quicker and more evenly, and you use a lot less oil than you would if you pan fried the food. Case it point: crab cakes. Cooking my crab cakes in my waffle iron was not only fun and easy, but they were definitely lighter from not having to pan fry them. And they were delicious! All the flavors were working together in a synchronized harmony, and the perfectly crisped crab cake was a joy to eat. My kids even tried them, thanks to the waffle shape. Now that my crab cake waffles were such a success, I’m excited to try some other foods in the waffle iron. Stay tuned!

Lazy Satay Chicken Recipe – 9 Smart Points

Lazy Satay Chicken

My kids have always loved Thai Chicken Satay (or “the yellow chicken on a stick”, as they refer to it). And who can blame them? Tender, juicy chicken marinated in a heavenly peanut sauce that is then grilled to perfection and served with extra sauce for dipping. It is divine! But rather than going out to a restaurant, which can get pricey and also lead to eating other tasty, but high calorie foods (Mango Sticky Rice, anyone?), I like to try and prepare a lighter, healthier version at home. I decided to make an attempt at the chicken satay, but after I set my chicken in the marinade, I realized that I didn’t have any skewers on hand. At that point, I debated whether to load up the kids in the car (who were playing quietly and peacefully at the time) and head to the store to grab some, or just leave the kids alone and try making this recipe without the skewers. The latter option won out. And thus, my Lazy Satay Chicken recipe was born. I’m not gonna lie…I LOVED not dealing with the hassle of the skewers! When I served it, I just gave my kids some toothpicks, and they enjoyed using that to dip their chicken in the peanut sauce. Easy peasy. While this dish is still 9 Smart Points per serving, it’s still a lot lighter and healthier than the ones you’d get at a Thai restaurant. But it’s JUST as flavorful and delicious!

Garlic Roasted Cabbage Wedges – 1 Smart Point

Garlic Roasted Cabbage Wedges

The cabbage is a vegetable that is often overlooked, and typically known for it’s blandness. But in my Garlic Roasted Cabbage Wedges recipe, the cabbage is the star! When roasting vegetables, I find that it brings out a natural, smoky sweetness, and it offers a depth of flavor that you really don’t get when sautéing or steaming. And roasting the cabbage really elevates this common vegetable to a whole new level. Topping it with a lemony, garlic oil gives it that extra bit of flavor that turns a commonplace vegetable into a decadent and flavorful side dish that is SO good, you’ll find yourself making it again and again. And at just 1 Smart Point per serving, it’s a great way to offer a delicious and filling Weight Watchers side dish to round out any meal.

Roasted Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa Recipe – 5 Smart Points

Roasted Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa

This Roasted Lime Salmon with Mango Salsa Recipe is the ultimate summer dish. It’s packed with fresh, irresistible flavors that come together to create a symphony of savor in your mouth. The combination of the smoky salmon with the sweet and tangy salsa is truly amazing. I like to serve this with my coconut rice for a complete meal. But it totally works as is, if you are trying to avoid carbs. Pair it with some roasted veggies instead! If you are grilling, the salmon can be cooked over the grill, which would lend a wonderful charred taste to the dish. I’m often just too lazy to grill, so roasting is my go to, easy meat preparation method. But grilling the salmon in this recipe truly takes it to another level, so I highly recommend giving it a try that way too. And at just 5 Smart Points per serving, this dish is a great way to enjoy a healthy dinner that is truly like summer on a plate. Enjoy!

If you are cooking a Weight Watchers dinner on a budget, this Sole Piccata recipe is an ideal option. Sole is relatively inexpensive, and it’s a mild flavored fish that works well in a variety of dishes.

Chips and salsa are a pretty popular snack in my house. The whole family is a fan, and we find ourselves snacking on it very regularly.
