Saffron Shortbread

Tags: ,

I think the name of this recipe says everything. Shortbread is truly delicious and if you make it yourself you can really play around with the flavourings. I love to use the delicate aroma and flavour of saffron, but you can use cinnamon, ginger and even lemon. Anything goes!

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.

Quinoa is incredible! It’s a complete protein containing all 8 of the essential amino acids your body needs. Perfect for veggies, vegans and those with a gluten allergy, you can eat it hot or cold much like cous cous. Hailed as a super crop it was discovered by the Incas and there are rumoured to be some 1800 varieties.
