Some wonderful recipes have crossed the Atlantic: Delia's versions of burgers, key lime pie, meatloaf and chef's salad are real culinary highlights.
It doesn't have to be prawns: you can use fish, chicken or even pork in this wonderful one-pot recipe packed with flavours of Cajun cooking and the Deep South.
This warming and nutritious soup is based on an old Scottish favourite, Cullen Skink. The addition of eggs makes it more filling and increases the protein content too.

This would make a perfect main-course salad for a hot summer's day, served on a bed of crisp lettuce and garnished with watercress. A Marks & Spencer cooked chicken leg portion is the perfect size.
