Baking fish in salt is one of the surest way to keep it soft and succulent. I like to use rock salt with a little coriander seed and lemon to create my crust. And don’t be shocked by the amount of salt you need – it’s purely for the crust and you won’t eat any of it.
The name of this dish doesn’t do it justice (namely because I struggled to come up with something suitable) but just think of it as the perfect comfort food which doubles up as a wonderful dish when entertaining.
This is an ancient recipe of stuffing a whole fish with spices, sealing it in an earthenware pot, burying it in the ground and covering it with natural heat fermenters. I have had to change the recipe slightly to replicate this style of cooking for the modern day. Perfect for a dinner party. You can click here to see how to make it.
Every time I make this curry I always get asked what I added and how I made it, so I thought I would write it down and add it to my recipe collection. This is a great recipe to really turn up the heat, or if you prefer to keep it milder then add a little coconut cream at the end.
Brioche is an enriched sweet bread often eaten at special occasions in France. This is a recipe for a 1kg loaf but you can make these into small individual brioches if you like, and add any sweet spices such as nutmeg, cloves and even saffron.
I love green veggies. Spinach, kale, broccoli, you name it, I love it! This recipe uses spinach, watercress and rocket but you can add any greens you fancy. Toasted pine nuts stirred through after wilting is a great addition too.
Having a slice of cake with a coffee is a real treat and almost a must in my home. This coffee and pecan cake covers both bases, and you can add a splash of Marsala or Tia Maria if you fancy making it boozy.
