Teriyaki Salmon

  • 2 Fillets of Salmon, roughly 100g each
  • 100g Courgette
  • 2 Spring Onions
  • 100g Fennel
  • 50g Tenderstem Broccoli
  • 75ml Kikkoman Soy Sauce
  • 25ml Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil

Start off by making up your marinade, mix together the soy sauce, maple syrup and garlic powder. Put the salmon into the marinade skin side up and leave for at least half an hour, even better overnight (if you’re particularly organised).

Next you’re going to want to thinly slice all of the vegetables, I did mine at a jaunty cheffy angle because they look pretty. Now for the cooking, pre-heat your oven to 180c and start off with the salmon. Lightly cook for about 2 minutes either side in a pan and then transfer to the oven to finish off.

In a saucepan reduce the excess marinade until it is sticky and syrup like in consistency. Then, in a wok stir fry the courgette, fennel and spring onion, I threw a few drops of soy sauce over it for some seasoning. Steam of boil the tenderstem, I boiled mine until it was… tender. Finally, plate the veg stick the salmon on top and glaze the fish with the marinade using a pastry brush. Enjoy!

Seafood Linguine

  • 150g Raw King Prawns
  • 100g Octopus (Cleaned)
  • 4 Large Scallops (Cut in half)
  • 10 Mussels
  • 50g Samphire
  • 75g Linguine
  • 50g Butter
  • 1 tsp Capers
  • 2 Cloves Garlic

I’ll warn you now there is a little bit of faffing around with this, it is however well worth it. Start off by prepping your seafood (or you could of course ask your fishmonger to do that for you). You’re going to want peel the prawns, do this by taking off the head and then running your thumb under the shell towards the tail.

Throw away the shells but keep the heads they are lovely deep fried, trust me. Leave the prawns to one side and thinly slice the octopus separating the tentacles. Again leave those to one side and then slice the scallops through the middle so you get eight discs.

Boil the kettle and then stick a large pan on the heat. Once the pan is scorching hot, add little oil and then stir fry the octopus, followed by the prawns and finally the scallops. Leave them all to one side to rest. In another pan cook the pasta until softened. Just before you drain the pasta add the samphire to blanch for about a minute.

Now for the mussels put them in a small pan, put on a high heat and cover. Cook for about three minutes or until they are all opened. You don’t need to add water there is enough moisture in the mussels to steam them open.

Back in the pan you used for the seafood, melt the butter, add the capers, crush the garlic into the butter and stir. Finally add the pasta, samphire, mussels and the other seafood and stir for about a minute or so making sure its all well coated. Transfer it to a bowl and dive in!

Eggs Royale

  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Soft White Roll or English Muffin
  • 100g Chapel and Swan Smoked Salmon
  • Water
  • 1 tbsp Hollandaise Sauce ( Atkins & Potts)
  • Pinch of dried Parsley

Start, by cutting the roll in half and sticking it in your toaster or under the grill.

Use a small frying pan to poach my eggs,  it works the best and makes it easier to get them out of the pan.

Bring some water to the boil in the pan and once boiling, crack the egg into the pan. Poach the egg for around 3 minutes. While that’s cooking, cut the salmon into little strips and layer on top of the now toasted roll.

Once the egg is done, take it out and lay it on top of the smoked salmon, before topping with the hollandaise sauce.
