Foil-baked Whole Fresh Salmon with Green Herb MayonnaiseServes 8

Foil-baked Whole Fresh Salmon with Green Herb Mayonnaise

The way I cook a salmon is extremely slowly, wrapped in foil in the oven. I cannot recommend this method highly enough. With skin and bones, head and tail intact there is not only a captured concentration of flavours, but also a guaranteed succulent

 
 
Orecchiette with Sprouting Broccoli, Pine Nuts and SultanasServes 4

Orecchiette with Sprouting Broccoli, Pine Nuts and Sultanas

A great way of serving pasta to vegetarians: the pine nuts and sultanas give it an almost Sicilian feel, while the purple sprouting broccoli is a brilliant way to enjoy the all-too-short season of this green vegetable.

 
 
Fried Skate Wings with Warm Green SalsaServes 2

Fried Skate Wings with Warm Green Salsa

Easy to cook, the creamy flesh of skate marries well with a punchy-flavoured salsa such as this one. Serve it with salad and new potatoes.

 
 
Tropical Fruit Salad in Planter's PunchServes 8

Tropical Fruit Salad in Planter's Punch

Fruit salad with a kick, based on a Caribbean cocktail of rum, fruit juices and spice: a mouthwatering way to end a summer meal and a good recipe when entertaining.

 
 
Cauliflower with Two Cheeses and Creme FraicheServes 4 as a vegetable or 2 for supper

Cauliflower with Two Cheeses and Creme Fraiche

This is almost like a cheat's cauliflower cheese as you don't have to make a separate sauce - just let the creme fraiche melt. Use vegetarian cheese if you are not a meat eater: this is comfort food at its best.

 
 
Grilled Plaice Fillets with Shrimp SauceServes 2

Grilled Plaice Fillets with Shrimp Sauce

This sumptuous fish dish tastes a million dollars yet can be assembled and cooked in just 10 minutes - who says special-occasion food demands all day in the kitchen?

 
 
Poached Trout with HerbsServes 4

Poached Trout with Herbs

Cheap and nutritious, trout is hugely under-rated and still good value for money. This is a brilliant way of serving it - light and summery with hardly any fat.

 
 
Thai Bean Salad with Pink Grapefruit and GrapesServes 4, or 6 as a starter

Thai Bean Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Grapes

In Thailand, they use pomelo in salads, which is very similar to grapefruit. I have used pink grapefruit here, but when they're not available, you could ring the changes and use a thinly sliced, medium-sized mango.

 
 
Chicken BasqueServes 4

Chicken Basque

One of the very best one-pot recipes in the world, this lovely Mediterranean combination of chicken, rice, olives and peppers is given extra kick with the addition of chorizo and paprika.

 
 
Spinach Soup with FontinaServes 4

Spinach Soup with Fontina

Spinach is an unusual ingredient in soups but works really well...and provides you with plenty of iron and other nutrients.
