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.

Coriander Sesame Crusted Tuna

This recipe has a sort of Japanese feel with a touch of spice. Encrusting the tuna steak with spiced sesame is a wonderful way to add texture and flavour, and I like serving it with some cooling cucumber with a mustard soy dressing.

For this recipe I’ve borrowed flavours from China. It’s really simple yet impressive so great if you have someone coming round for dinner. I like to serve it with some fragrant sautéed pak choi.

Whole Stuffed Fish

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.
