Salt Baked Bream with Coriander & Lemon

Tags: , , , ,

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.

Souped Up Chicken

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.

Smoked Paprika Thyme Mixed Grill

It’s no secret I love smoked paprika and this recipe is one of my go-to recipes when I’m pushed for time and want to eat something delicious for dinner. I love to add chicken to my skewers but you can skip this and add whatever veggies you like.

Creamy Coconut Curry with Beef & Chilli

This recipe borrows flavours from Thailand and is the perfect spicy curry full of creamy goodness. You can pack it full of veggies if you like, and it tastes great with any meat and seafood.

Shakshuka

Ideal for brunch, this North African dish has all the flavours you need – poached eggs in an aromatic sweet tomato sauce full of cumin, paprika and suitably herby. I’ve added a few twists of my own to add some extra zing.

Whole Stuffed Fish

Tags: , ,

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.

Mustard Roasted Beets with Maple Pecan Dressing

Beets can taste strong when eaten raw, but they mellow and are rather sweet once roasted. Add some mustard, mixed leaves and maple roasted pecans and your boring salad days are over.

Best Lamb Curry Ever!

Tags: ,

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.

Hearty Lentil Soup

This recipe is full of healthy ingredients and can easily be adapted to suit vegetarians or those who feel they need some meat in their daily meal.

Fiery Steak Frites

Tags: , , , ,

As you know I love to add spices into all my dishes to create excitement and although I agree that some recipes should be left alone, I do adore spicing up this one. This classic steak and fries has been fired up with chillies and your basic pantry spice staples, and I love it with wedges rather than fries to reduce the hassle of deep frying.
