Want to eat like a professional footballer? Fancy having the same pre-match and pre-training food as David Silva and Joe Hart? Well now you can.
Our chefs at Carrington create endless simple, nutritious and healthy dishes for the players every day and now they are sharing their secrets. What better way to get the younger City fans in your life to eat well and give the junk food a wide berth?
Follow the simple instructions below and eat like a player!
4x wild sea bass fillets off the bone
20 tiger prawns
Handful of peas
Handfuls of sugar-snap peas
Packet of dried linguini
4x heaped spoonfuls of pesto
Cook the linguini until al dente – not too hard and not too soft – and drain. At the same time gently fry the tiger prawns until cooked and boil the sugar-snap and garden peas for a minute at most. Mix prawns, peas and linguini together, add pesto and mix together before making four equal portions for each serving.
Take the belly off the sea bass fillets, cut each portion in half, score the skin side and heat your frying pan. When it’s hot, place a small amount of oil and when it starts to smoke, place fillets in skin-side down and fry for two minutes until it begins to brown around the edges. Flip it over and place in pre-heated oven (180 degrees) for two minutes – beware if your pan isn’t ovenproof!
Place the sea bass on top of the linguini and prawns and serve.
