Smoked Salmon Rilletes

Don’t let the french name scare you – I promise, it’s simple as anything.  I first stumbled upon Salmon Rilletes around 4 years ago, when I first took over my family Christmas dinner from my mum.  Salmon always seems to be a popular choice this time of year, and I wanted a way to prep…

Prawn Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of those fantastic recipes designed to utilise all of the leftovers and turn them into something beautiful.  Leftover rice, leftover protein and leftover vegetables fried together with a few flavourings to make a quick and easy bowl of goodness that will fill you up and help avoid waste.  In these environmentally…

Miso Glazed Salmon Fillet with Lentils

Salmon is one of those ubiquitous fishes that seems to pervade our lives along with cod and tuna, and I would argue it’s the most versatile.  Put it in a burger?  Check.  A steak?  Check.  Risotto?  Check.  Bagel with Cream Cheese?  Ohhh, you betcha!  As much as these uses are fabulous, simply grilling a fillet…

Crayfish Sushi Bowl

I remember becoming obsessed with the notion of sushi as a child.  It would often appear in Japanese cartoons or get mentioned in American television, but growing up in the flat lands of Norfolk 15 years ago, it wasn’t something that was readily available.  Still, the bizarre white rolls surrounded in a deep green coating…

Seared Jerk Salmon with Mango-Lime Sauce

  It felt like a while since I’d pushed my food tastes outside my usual comfort zone, and I needed to mix it up.  I don’t often have a lot of fish in my diet, and when I do I typically pair it with something creamy.  I settled upon salmon, but wanted to do something that wasn’t…

Sweet Chili Crab Risotto

Risottos seem to have a strange reputation as a phenomenally difficult dish to cook and I’m not really sure why.  Granted, a restaurant critic might be a stickler about the precise consistency but quite frankly – besides the somewhat attentive stirring needed – risottos are wonderfully easy and versatile dishes that are particularly good for…

Spicy Salmon Scotch Eggs

The Scotch Egg has been a classic aspect of any decent picnic or beige party spread for generations.  The combination of egg, sausage and breadcrumbs wrapped as it is in that convenient form make them pretty irresistible.  But why not mix things up a bit?  In the past I’ve made Black Pudding Scotch eggs, but…

Squash Spaghetti with Prawn and Spinach

First thing’s first – you can just use regular pasta.  Now that that’s out of the way… Christmas has passed and I have a kitchen full of new gadgets to test out – first on the list is a spiralizer, courtesy of my big sister.  For those who haven’t heard of these relatively new but massively popular…

Sweet Crab Rice Cakes

Crab meat, that elusive beast.  So many claim to be you, so few are!  Still, we know better, do we not?  That unmistakable, sweet delicate flavour delivered in an oh, so fragile flaky form.  Finding the freshest of crab meats is rather tough on the average shop, so for this I simply used tinned and…

Cod Poached in Tomato Sauce with Feta and Parsley Topping

I’ve never had a huge amount of seafood in my diet – the occasional prawn, a drunken filet-of-fish from time to time, but these are few and far between.  Feeling like it’s about time I shake things up I decided to give this a go.  I’ve seen a few recipes out there in which the…
