Another Crab Spaghetti

This version is slightly different to the previous one as it has asian leanings, admittedly a bit strange with pasta, if you feel that weird about it, you could always have noodles… The point is, this is a perfect way to eat crab, with chilli, garlic, coriander and lime. Add to that that this was […]


Jansen’s Temptation

I saw this recipe in this month’s Olive for a Swedish dish of potatoes and onions layered, covered with cream and anchovies and baked with a crunchy breadcrumb topping. How can you go wrong? I ended up using this recipe from Hollow Legs and it was pretty good, although I’m not sure I was completely […]


Big Mack Cakes

Cheap and easy to make and SO tasty!


Smoked Mackerel Kedgeree

Using smoked mackerel is a slightly more sustainable take on the classic smoked haddock variety.


Scallops with Lentils and Roasted Tomato

Mmmm, yes more decadent eating. This was a mesh of lots of recipes that I saw, mostly including bacon, so I adjusted them a little bit. In fact, the sweetness of the roasted tomatoes goes really sweet scallops. If you’re not feeling so flash, I think this would go really well with haloumi instead. Another […]

Crab and Chilli Linguine

I’ve been wanting to make this for ages, and last weekend we decided to indulge in a bit of yuppie food buying with the rest of the YPs on Lorsdship Lane…it was all local fishmongers and organic greengrocers. Anyway it was definitely worth it, this is absolutely delicious, some lemon, garlic and chili go really […]

Broad Bean Pilaf

I made this with fresh broad beans, but they are another vegetable like the pea that freeze well, so this is just as good with frozen broad beans. I had this with the Mackerel Salad below, but this would be good with curry too. Ingredients 1 onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1tsp […]


Chai Spiced Prawns

I love my job, I got to cook this to include in the monthly newsletter I’ve been making for Hampstead Tea. The idea was to marinade prawns in Chai tea, and its actually really good, the chai tea really adds a deep and spicy flavour. Obviously you should only use Hampstead Biochai tea, it really […]

Mackerel and Beetroot Salad

A simple salad – earthy and sweet beetroot goes surprisingly well with the oily mackerel.


Fish Pie

Loosely based on a recipe by Gordon Ramsey, this is seriously the best fish pie I’ve ever tasted. He makes it topped with puff pastry, but why miss a chance to use mashed potato? Use any combination of fish you like (see fish online), prawns or scallops would be a particularly decadent addition. some kind […]
