Cabbage & Radish Stir-Fry with Mackerel

Cabbage & Radish Stir-Fry with Mackerel

Generally I eat radish raw, sliced up and added to salads. I wasn’t aware until recently that you can also cook them. They have been on special offer lately in Tesco, so i’ve been looking for inspiration on what to do with them. I came […]

Curried Paneer & Tenderstem with Mango Salsa

Curried Paneer & Tenderstem with Mango Salsa

This recipe evolved a lot from my initial plans. I intended to make paneer and pepper kebabs, but I ran out of peppers and so had to raid my fridge to find a good substitute. Sometimes these sort of meals turn out to be the […]

Chicken & Mango Stir-Fry

Chicken & Mango Stir-Fry

Quick, simple and tasty, this sweet and spicy stir-fry is great for using up any leftover vegetables you have at the end of the week. I used carrot and broccoli, as well as the mango but pepper, kale, or baby corn would work. I suggest […]

Miso Salmon & Tenderstem Quinoa Salad

Miso Salmon & Tenderstem Quinoa Salad

The inspiration for this recipe came from one on BBC Good Food, Only the one on there uses boiled eggs instead of salmon, making it vegetarian. They recommend it as a healthy lunch box suggestion that you can eat cold. I served this one hot, […]

Prawn, Pineapple & Sweet Potato Curry

Prawn, Pineapple & Sweet Potato Curry

When I made this I used green Thai curry paste, but in the past I have followed exactly the same recipe, but used Korma instead. Both flavours really compliment the dish so feel free to try either. Red Thai curry paste would also work and […]

Healthy Thai style Sweet & Sour Prawn Stir-Fry

Healthy Thai style Sweet & Sour Prawn Stir-Fry

Sweet and sour is one of the most popular dishes found in Chinese and Thai cooking. However, shop bought sauces and the versions found in takeaways are so full of sugar, fat and all kinds of additives that they really aren’t a healthy option. Even […]

Spicy Rice with Steak & Mango Salsa

Spicy Rice with Steak & Mango Salsa

Adding fruit to savoury dishes is something you either love or hate. I love it, as I have a sweet tooth, but I understand if it is a no go for you. The key to make this dish work really well is to make sure […]

Chicken, Aubergine & Tomato Curry

Chicken, Aubergine & Tomato Curry

Cooked aubergine is great in a curry, especially as it is native to Asia and so gives a curry some level of authenticity. In fact it was in a curry that I first tried aubergine when my tandem pilot at the time, Fiona Duncan, was […]

Brazilian Prawn Stew

Brazilian Prawn Stew

When I went to Rio for the Paralympics, even though I was there for almost 3 weeks, I never got to really sample the typical Brazilian cuisine. The food provided for us in the Paralympic Village was very plain and basic and just served a […]

Thai Yellow Salmon Curry

Thai Yellow Salmon Curry

Until recently I wasn’t aware that you could get a yellow Thai curry. The more common are red and green. They are named for the colour of chilli that is used. Red Thai curry is the spiciest and in traditional Thai cookery people have been […]

Prawn & Vegetable Korma

Prawn & Vegetable Korma

Making my own curry paste is something I would like to try one day, but for now it is quicker and easier to buy and use ready made curry paste. It doesn’t stop me adding in extra spices, which I do quite happily to put […]

Smoked Salmon Poke

Smoked Salmon Poke

Poke, pronounced poh-kay is a traditional Hawaiian speciality. It is similar to sushi in that the fish is typically served raw on top of rice. It differs though in that it is served in a bowl and garnished with salad, herbs and even fruit. It is […]
