Lemony chilli prawn tagliatelle

I honestly think that one of the best flavour combinations in the world is that of chilli/lemon/garlic, and it goes so beautifully with pasta and prawns that this is one of my favourite things to eat! There's a secret ingredient in this which I think lifts it to the next level- anchovies! Please don't be put off if you aren't an anchovy fan in general, you would never even detect they were there, but they add a depth and a saltiness and zing that really lifts this dish and makes it ...

Jambalaya

A friend recently suggested I tried frozen pre-chopped onions, she said it had been a game-changer for her- I had always felt a bit funny about it- maybe thinking it was a bit lazy not to just chop your own onion if you needed it?! But my mind has been completely changed! Why did I not do this sooner? It just makes general meal prep so much quicker, and who isn't pressed for time these days, plus, I actually really flipping hate chopping onions! The other thing that this revelation has done ...

Jerk fish traybake

I'm so keen to get more fish into our diets- it's such a healthy option, and with so many proven health benefits- fish really is a superfood, way more than all of the fads that come and go. Unfortunately I haven't been as super-organised as I planned to in getting to a fishmonger, and therefore our diets definitely don't include the recommended 2 fish-based meals a week. I've found the perfect way to address this, and I can't really believe I didn't clock on sooner! Frozen fish! The ...

King prawn and sweet potato curry

I was excited when Iceland asked me to create a healthy dish using their frozen fish and seafood range- I love seafood, and I've been meaning to get more into our diet. I popped along to my nearest Iceland store to have a browse, and was so impressed by the range of frozen fish- I was very tempted to pick up the red snapper after watching the video of how Iceland freeze it at source- I quite liked the idea of a jerk style red snapper curry (might still do this at some point!), but when I ...

Pad Thai

I have a very soft spot for Pad Thai, not from when I actually travelled in Thailand sadly (I was only 18 and had never heard of it then!), but from when I first moved to London with 2 of my best friends in 2003. We moved into a flat in Streatham and my brother introduced us to Pansa Thai (I don't know if its still there- I hope it is!)- after the first time we ordered Pad Thai, it was the only takeaway that we ever had in the 5 years that we lived there, it was just SO GOOD! Anyway, ...

Zesty chilli salmon with courgette and ginger noodles

I've always loved the combination of salmon and noodles, and when the Norwegian Seafood Council asked me to create an easy supper using their salmon from Norway, I wanted to create something served with noodles, but with a real burst of flavour to complement the salmon. I chose an orange and chilli glaze, as it turns beautifully sticky when it's baked in the oven, and the orange zest really packs in extra flavour. When it's baked like this, salmon really comes out with the most ...

Mini tuna quiches

I can't believe that I have never experimented with filo pastry before! It's so much fun to use, and so easy to use, with the plus-side being that because the sheets are ultra thin it's super low in fat (and syns!). On Slimming World, the average sheet is 3.5 syns, so for something like these mini quiches you can manage a brilliant snack with very few syns. Out of one packet of filo sheets I made a chicken pie (for the kids- but will definitely do a healthy version soon- I use butter to fry ...

Easy prawn and chorizo paella

  Paella is such a satisfying dish- I don't know if I love it so much because it reminds me of holidays and food festivals, but whenever I do it I always wonder why I don't cook it more often! It's a lovely easy thing to make a lean version of as it has such lovely flavours in it anyway. Chorizo can vary a lot in its fat content, so I try to find the leanest one that I can (so if you are following Slimming World then check the syn value of the one you have selected as it varies ...

Citrus risotto with garlic chilli prawns

All the credit for this goes to Bill Grainger- it's ages since I've browsed through the books that I have of his, and I had completely forgotten about this one! It is such a delicious risotto, pretty simple but the lemony risotto is divine alongside the fiery garlicky prawns. It's actually making my mouth water just thinking about it! It from the book Bill's Open Kitchen (click here to see on Amazon). I have taken out the 50g of butter, and reduced the amount of oil used, we used to ...
