Molasses-glazed trout a speedy supper for busy families

How to eat well on the run

Busy families don’t always take time (have time?) to sit down and enjoy a great meal before running off in all directions.

Such is life, but you don’t always have to sacrifice supper to the soccer gods. With a little planning (and may be help from the kids) you can put a great meal on the table in under 30 minutes and still get to practice on time.

This is one of those Tuesday night suppers that is dinner party worthy. The marinade is quick to mix up and few foods cook faster than fish.

It means that we can eat well and still get my daughter to soccer practice on time. No rushed supper and no eating in the car on the way to the field.

Life should be so easy…
