Griddled Tuna with Mango Salsa (2)

This is the second version of a favourite family dish – hence the (2) in the title. The original version was one of my first ever posts on the blog back in 2011. I used to often make the dish, partly because I liked it so much and it’s really simple, especially for a midweek […]

Pan-Roasted Cod with Salmorejo & Crispy Serrano Ham

Inspired by my recent trip to Granada, I decided to make some salmorejo today. Salmorejo is very similar to gazpacho and both are traditional Andalusian dishes, so I saw them on most menus while in Granada.

I’ve been enjoying looking through the wonderful The Silver Spoon: Naples and the Amalfi Coast book that my friends Jane and Terry gave me for my birthday just over a week ago.

I’ve talked before about the wonderful fishmonger, Sandys, in Twickenham high street and I stopped by there this morning and bought a nice fillet […]

Seared Scallops with Linguine al Nero di Seppia & Fresh Tomato Sauce

It’s been such a lovely, truly summery day that I decided some fish for supper would be perfect. I eat fish all year round but there’s something wonderful about lightly cooked fish served simply that is reminiscent of summer holidays on the Mediterranean, fish caught from the sea and almost straight into a pan or […]

Roast Sea Bass with Fennel & Orange

There’s so much wonderful produce in the Twickenham Farmers’ Market at the moment on Saturday mornings I like to follow their lead and buy what takes my eye as well as the regular things – like the amazingly wonderful mixed salad bag from Chegworth Valley. Last week my sighting of some gorgeous red gooseberries led […]
