15-minute dinner with Mission Wraps: Maur Fish Otah Wrap!Monday, October 19, 2015
How are all of you? I realised I have been on a hiatus for the past two weeks on this blog.. mostly because I have been pretty much caught up with work. Ever since we started on party planning and my usual work-stuff, days pass so much faster and time really gets shorter.
I could be doing some work at 2pm and the next moment when I look up, whoa! 6pm already! Time to pick the kids up from childcare and... I haven't even prepared dinner yet.
Gone were the days where I would sit down just to peel potatoes, peel prawns and chopping up vegetables. I really do miss the days where the kids get home-cooked food every day, but juggling between short timelines and maintaining healthy diet for the kids is really not easy. Especially so when I don't have additional help anywhere, I am really stretching myself really thin! (figuratively, of course.)
So anyway, when The Good Folks sent me some new Mission 6-Grain Wrap, I knew I had to take it up because it is a brilliant short-cut to easy and healthy dinner! Besides, I only used two plates for everything so cleaning up was a breeze too, thank goodness.
I thought this is a really simple recipe to share with everyone, especially for mothers whose days are simply too short to spend it in front of the stove for the next three hours. Mission 6-Grain Wrap is not only nutritious, it has sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, oats, rye, linseeds and wholemeal brans to make it a wholesome meal.
Ingredients (serves up to 4):
* 1 packet of Mission 6-Grain Wrap
* 1 packet of frozen maur fish otah
* a handful of wild rockets
* a handful of lettuce
* 1 tomato, sliced
1. Thaw the fish otah about 2 hours prior to cooking.
2. Heat up a pan to moderate heat, remove fish otah from wrap and pan fry the fish paste until thoroughly cooked through.
3. Slice the otah into long strips and set aside.
4. On a new pan, heat up again to moderate heat and place a piece of Mission 6-Grain Wrap on it. Flip in about a minute or so to warm up both sides of the wrap.
5. Remove the wrap from heat and place it on a dinner plate.
6. Assemble washed wild rockets, lettuce and tomatoes in the middle of the wrap and place the fish otah strips on top.
7. Roll the wrap up gently and serve!
Some tips to share:
* If you leave the wrap on the pan for too long, don't worry, you can convert it into a taco instead! I made a BBQ Chicken with Japanese Sesame Dressing taco for Dylan and Alexis while we had the Muar Otah Wrap. Dylan personally prefers the wrap crispy.
* If you don't have time to thaw the otah on its own, dump it into a bowl of tap water (with the wrapper still intact, of course!). It thaws in half the time.
* You can also heat up Mission 6-Grain wraps with the microwave! Gets done in 30 seconds or so on high heat, so if you only have one pan, or find it too troublesome to wash the pan for your next use, the microwave will be handy.
The Mission 6-Grain wrap is available at all leading supermarkets from 1 September 2015.
I hope you'll enjoy this recipe as much as I did! :)
