Cod poached in Merrydown Cider

Enjoy a Great Summer Celebration with Fresh Recipe Ideas from Merrydown

Merrydown cider, the premium cider made from juicy eating apples, has just launched its new Great Summer Celebrations recipes featuring nine delicious seasonal dishes.

The easy-to-make recipes are designed to help us all make the most of summer entertaining as the dishes combine classic British recipes with the quintessential English drink, cider.

Each recipe uses Merrydown as a key ingredient to add zesty flavour and make the dishes unforgettable.

Suggestions include pork, apple & cheddar burgers with spiced cider and apple salsa or cider-glazed kebabs, which would be perfect on the barbeque.

A delicious al fresco lunch idea is the spinach roulade with creamy cheese, apple and cider filling, best served with a glass of chilled Merrydown cider.

When the sun doesn’t shine, the toad in the hole with cider red onion gravy is a great choice, whilst the delicious crispy cod with cider batter recipe is sure to impress any discerning diner.
I received a couple of bottles of Merrydown Cider as part of the Great Summer Celebration and decided to combine the cider with some of the lovely cod I received as part of the Fish is the Dish, Healthy Happy Hearts challenge to eat fish twice a week to increase Omega 3.  There are lots of recipes for poaching fish in cider online and in the Great Summer Celebration there is a recipe for "Devonshire Cod with mushrooms". The new recipes and many more favourites are available to download online now at in a handy recipe book.

oooh, I would never have thought of poaching cod in cider... what an amazing idea... looks so good! (Those potatoes particularly look damn fine x)

Thanks Dom, yes the potatoes were particularly crispy and nice!

This caught my attention for the same reason as Dom - I've never thought of poaching fish in cider. How does the fish hold up against the strong taste and sweetness of the cider? I guess you use it to cook mussels in, so it makes sense but it's not something I've ever considered. Thanks for broadening my horizons. Things like this are why I love blogs!

Gill- the cider flavour was quite delicate, more of an apple taste which worked well with the fish. Thanks for your comment, I'm always delighted when I'm able to come up with something that is new to others.

Very interesting with the cider! I'll have to try that one out. Looks lovely and I'll bet it was moist and delicious.
