Florentine Style Baked Cod

This is quite an old school recipe but I had it in Egypt of all places and I forgot how nice it was. I used cod in my recipe but any meaty fish will be fine. I put a spin on it by using parsley sauce, I made a batch as I had a bag…

Prawn Katsu Curry

I have wanted to do this dish for ages and finally got round to it. I love prawn curry and I love katsu curry thanks to that well know restaurant 😜 so I decided to put the 2 together. Gosh it was nice and very moorish. Everything just went together perfectly. There is abit of…

Griddled Chorizo on a Pickled Fennel, Lentil and Tomato Salad

When I was out to lunch recently I had a dish which came with quick pickled cucumber and courgette salad, it was so delicious. I did this version using fennel as it holds up well to flavouring and I knew it wouldn’t get too soft. The pickling liquid isn’t too overpowering at all it actually…

Easy All in One Scallop and Asparagus Risotto

I love risotto but I hate the whole process of adding a ladel of stock at a time, this way is just as good as I tested both ways. I actually think this method tastes much better as the risotto has a better texture and it means it can now be a quick mid week…

Fragrant Fridge Pickled Courgettes

All the great spring produce is starting to be available and pickling them is such a nice way to have them to hand. I love the large sliced dill pickles but they are so expensive now. As courgettes are cheap and always in abundance they are a brilliant alternative. I love the subtle flavours from…

Pancetta, Asparagus and Olive Tapenade Crispy Pizza Slice

So a certain international supermarket has Greek week and during this week they sell a large jar of olives which are nice and firm I’m not so keen on the jarred olives that have gone soft they also sell a really good quality thin crust ready pizza base that makes 2 decent sized pizzas, though…

Delicious Herb and Mustard Crusted Roast Pork

I got this joint reduced and would normally do a slow pulled pork recipe in the slow cooker but as it was cheap I decided to do a simple roast. It was amazing I was naughty and did Yorkshire pudding with it which made it even more scrumptious. The pork was so juicy but retained…

Hoisin Tempeh with an Asian Jersey Royal Potato Salad Recipe

As you can see from my recent blog posts I’m really throwing myself into spring produce this year and making the most of produce from each season. This one is jersey royals. I cooked the whole pack, had some warm with a simple piece of fish and I had some leftover so fancied doing something…

Griddled Aubergine with Wild Garlic Pesto and Parmesan Shavings

We are having wild garlic pesto in everything at the moment. I don’t mind though as it’s delicious. I’m trying to be as inventive as I can to make it a bit more exciting. This vegetarian side dish was simple but so yummy all the flavours really stood out and it went perfectly with our…

Wild Garlic and Rocket Pesto with Cashew Nuts

Happy food dance it’s spring what does that mean WILD GARLIC at last. I always feel that winter is behind us when those gorgeous green shoots appear, the aroma is so delicious and I always make a pesto and butter. It is so easy to make you just put everything in a food processor blitz…
