Fiona has cooked “Cod Pesto Parcels” Today.  Yvonne has asked Fiona some questions about her recipe!                                                                        


YK; Hello Fiona, That looks lovely. I like all the colours, Have you made Cod parcels before?

FT; Yes i have made them both with Cod and Haddock. I Like the colours too.

YK; I only have pesto with pasta, is it nice with fish?

 FT; I use pesto with pasta too. It’s nice with fish.

YK; Could you use any pesto?

FT; Yes, I’ve seen red pesto you could use that and mix up the vegetables. Use anything you like.

                                                             YK; Thanks Fiona, i will try make the one you have made.

                                                             FT; Thanks.
