Smoked Salmon and Burrata on Toast with Capers

Oh yes creamy burrata indulgent salmon and lots of pepper. This is such a yummy brunch lunch or light dinner. It would also be perfect for Christmas breakfast. The burrata takes it up a notch along with the watercress and salty capers. Ingredients (serves 2) Directions

Smoked Salmon Pasta with a Caper, Lemon and Parsley Sauce

This is such a great dinner when your tired and just want something tasty and quick. The sauce is great and skinny as you don’t use milk or cream. The flavours are classic, I am so partial to a bit of 80’s parsley sauce and just spruced it up. Ingredients Directions

Tuna and Sweetcorn Potato Skins

I love jacket potato as you can literally put anything on them. I love a certain brand of baked beans with cheese on top. (If they are good enough for our queen consort Camilla, they are good enough for me 😉) My hubby Paulie doesn’t like beans so I had to try something else. Tuna,…

Shrimp Tacos with Avocado, Lime and Coriander Crema

Tacos are my new addiction at the moment I have eaten them out loads of times but only recently started making them myself. They are so versatile you can basically put anything you have in them. As their is only me and my hubby I thought it might be a bit of a faff but…

Lemon Sole on Polenta with a Warm Sweetcorn Salsa

It’s corn as the song goes. I totally agree it’s juicy and sweet. I had a love hate relationship with polenta and stayed away from it for awhile but decided to try it again thanks to A well known yellow and blue supermarket that has themed country weeks. Yes I like it again and realise…

Crab, Scallop and Prawn Pizza

This is a treat, a posh pizza! It was delicious, I love shellfish and I love pizza so the two together was a delight. I don’t think I would be able to afford it all the time though. As it’s a white sauce it doesn’t overpower the sweet meat and the brown meat in the…

Crispy Calamari with A Salt and Pepper Polenta Batter

I always order calamari when I’m out as long as it’s fresh. My favourite bits are the tentacles. It has to be a really crispy batter and have a good amount of seasoning. They key is for the oil to be smoking and to literally cook it for a max of 2 minutes. These were…

Pan Fried Hake on a Tomato and Chive Beurre Blanc Sauce

Amazing I can’t wait to have this again with different types of white fish. I saw this idea on Saturday kitchen. It looked so amazing I just had to try it. I tweaked it a little bit by adding fish stock instead of wine as I thought it would too be acidic, it worked perfectly….

Hot Smoked Salmon on Wild Rice and Peas

This is such a simple salad but delicious I cooked the rice in stock so it didn’t need a dressing I have found such a good technique which is foolproof for cooking the rice which stops it sticking together. Ingredients 1 fillet hot smoked salmon, skin removed 1 cup wild rice 1 1/2 cup chicken…

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…

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…
