Pumpkin Prawn Spaghetti Squash

Pumpkin Prawn Spaghetti Squash

I have been hunting for spaghetti squash for over two years now, so you can only imagine the delight in my eyes when I inadvertently came across them at a food festival. I was so excited by my findings that I failed to take note […]

Paleo Pesto Scallops

Paleo Pesto Scallops

Scallops are absolutely delightful, especially as an appetizer. I love all seafood and would literally eat all of it but the three things I particularly look for on a menu for an appetizer are scallops, crab and squid. These three have a lush light delicacy […]

Paleo Crust Pizzas

Paleo Crust Pizzas

This paleo pizza crust doesn’t taste like the ‘real thing’, at least it certainly does not taste like a Domino’s pizza, however, it is still very delicious and filling (because the base is fairly fat-heavy rather than carb-heavy). A whole pizza probably has similar calories […]

Paleo Prawn & Chicken Dumpling Soup

Paleo Prawn & Chicken Dumpling Soup

Dumplings are usually made from dough, however, the casing for these ones is just one ingredient – egg. This means you get all the delicious flavour but with a lot less carbs. My Asian mother even approved these, so they must be good! I used […]

Chinese Ginger Soy Basa

Chinese Ginger Soy Basa

Cannot express in words my happiness that I was in seafood heaven for ten days. Two months later I am still dreaming of cuttlefish curry, prawn laksa, steamed spring onion fish, oyster omelettes and so much more! This recipe might not be as good as […]

Simple Tomato Mussels

Simple Tomato Mussels

This recipe can be served as a light dinner or party starter. Made with only 8 ingredients and taking only 12 minutes to cook, it is definitely a easy and quick choice. Friday is traditionally fish night, so give this one ago at the end […]

Kippers, Poached Eggs & Smashed Greens

Kippers, Poached Eggs & Smashed Greens

I think I have found a new favourite fish! Sorry salmon, you are still great but kippers have taken 1st place. Both kippers and eggs are great sources of protein and Omega 3 and together they just bring so much flavour to the table. Cooking […]

Roasted Whole Plaice with an Oily Herb Dressing

Roasted Whole Plaice with an Oily Herb Dressing

Cod and haddock are my usual white fish choices so it is always nice to change things up once in a while. Plaice has a fine, moist texture and is fairly inexpensive. This recipe is simple to make but full of flavour and makes a […]

Baked Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa

Baked Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa

DOMS are not an indication of progression, your muscles may have still got a great workout if you aren’t aching the next day, but its too easy to associate muscle ache with progression, right? We always complain about the aches but we always go back […]

Pan-fried Hake with Raw Herb Lemon Salsa

Pan-fried Hake with Raw Herb Lemon Salsa

When it comes to white fish I will usually have haddock or cod, but every now and again its nice to have something slightly different. Hake has a flavour which is not as strong as cod and a fairly meaty flesh. I grow most of my herbs in […]
