Hello there lovely people! Today I have 5 recipes for you that I was commissioned by iVillage to write. I believe that you never have to compromise on flavour, even if you are strapped for time or aiming for a healthy and low fat meal. Fat is delicious though, don’t get me wrong, it’s just that, for balance, some days we have to behave. With these recipes, you can be satisfied that you are not missing out.
Gurnard with Tomato & Mint Sauce
Gurnard (photographed above) is a most underrated fish. Very delicate in flavour it takes fruity flavours like tomato, and herbs very well. I first had it in Croatia many years ago. I just couldn’t resist the bright orange fish and the waiter assured me it was delicious, it really is. Not only that but it is really reasonably priced, I got 2 fish for £5 in Borough Market, ask your fishmonger to stock it for you if they don’t already. It’s sustainable too – embrace the gurnard.
Pork Tenderloin with Spinach and Cannelini Beans
Lemon, Garlic & Thyme Chicken with Broccoli and Potatoes
Prawn Cous Cous
Linguine with Tomato and Aubergine
This dish isn’t a looker but it is rich and delicious. It’s vegetarian too, for those days when you need to counteract your steak indulgence! It’s is also a nice topping for bruschetta, if you want something cosy for a fireside February evening.
