Homemade Fish Fingers

Like many people my age I probably came close to eating my own weight in Fish Fingers, Oven Chips and Baked Beans as a child. Whilst they certainly aren't to everyone's taste I think that…

Griddled Tuna with Roasted Vegetable Salsa

I wasn't originally planning to write up a proper recipe for this Griddled Tuna with Roasted Vegetable Salsa. It's not because we didn't enjoy eating it - indeed it's quite the opposite and we both found it…

Coconut Fish Curry

I've deliberately avoiding giving a geographic name to this Coconut Fish Curry as it's very much a mid-oceanic dish with influences from around the Bay of Begal. There are some hints of Thailand with the lemongrass and…

Paprika & Lemon Basa

I think I've mentioned before that I'd never seen Basa fillets until I found them pre-marinaded in a "tikka-style" sauce. I admit that I was a little reluctant to buy a fish that I'd never…

Tikka Salmon with Jewelled Rice

Everyone enjoys a curry, don't they? Like most Brits I tend to leave the hard work to the professionals and rely on my local takeaway to deliver the goods if I'm in need of a…

Ginger & Garlic Prawns

Normally you only find preserved stem ginger being used in baking, to add a little bit of sweet heat to cakes and biscuits. I had a jar that needed to be used up and wondered…

Baked Fish with Homemade Salsa

As well as having a "meat-free day" every week, Michael and I are also trying to have a "fish and/or seafood day" too - partly to mix things up in our diets but also because…

Prawn and Chorizo Pasta

This week is really starting to feel like an exercise in simplicity and cooking really lovely food from very few ingredients. Tonight's Prawn and Chorizo Pasta is no exception, containing as it does just 7 ingredients…

Prawn Firecracker Rice

When we moved into our house last year we were rather pleased to have a walk-in pantry, though it will soon be demolished when our new kitchen gets installed in a couple of months time.…

Baked Coconut Prawns

I'm a creature of habit. Whenever I travel to the USA if there's a Bubba Gump restaurant nearby there's a very strong chance I'll end up in it at some point. I'm sure that many people…

Caesar Salad with Salmon

A plain Caesar salad is a joy to eat, even if my use of the world "plain" does sound a little bit disparaging. There's often a reason that you find the same dish appearing on…

Cod with Chorizo and Potatoes

Sometimes I like to be a little bit "chef-y" and make a bit more effort with the presentation of the food I make. Tonight I found my old set of cooking rings in the drawer…

Salmon, Asparagus and New Potato Frittata

It's a nice and easy dinner night tonight - we wanted something fresh, light and healthy (which comes with the benefit of leftovers for lunch tomorrow). Perfect! Salmon, Asparagus and New Potato Frittata Salmon, dill…

One Pan Baked Salmon

I often find that the hardest part of experimenting in the kitchen is knowing when to stop. Admittedly there are plenty of occasions where adding one or two more ingredients will make an average dish into…

Oven-baked Cod with Romesco Sauce

  Oven-baked Cod with Romesco Sauce Delicate fish, salty ham and a sauce that packs a serious punch. This looks and tastes as good as anything you'd get in a restaurant and it's easy to…

Extra Crispy Fish Pie

Why have one recipe for Fish Pie when you can have two? In fairness I was planning on making "Scott's Fish Pie" - recipe here - until I saw a fish pie online that used…
