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….

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…
