I wouldn’t say that fish is one of my favourite foods exactly, but I do enjoy eating it on occasion because it makes a nice light change from eating meat. I made this fish pie one day when I was feeling cold and as if the winter had considerably overstayed its welcome.
I sometimes go through phases of eating particular foods. I wonder if this is because my body naturally requires something nutritional in the type of food I crave? A case in point is salmon. Although I generally tend to eat beef or chicken, sometimes only a salmon fillet will suffice. Perhaps my body is lacking omega-3 fatty acids or something at the time?
Coconut rings are lovely little tasty bites of cake that are formed of creamy desiccated coconut which create a raised moat around a jam-filled centre. They’re a really easy bake to make and require very few ingredients too. In its dried, desiccated form coconut can be used to lend creaminess and body to curries and tagines as well as sweet and exotic fruity flavours to sweet dishes.
The other night I was debating over what to cook for dinner and I realised that I was really in the mood for a good quality beefburger. When I inspected the contents of the fridge I was pleased to find that I had some grated parmesan left over from a pasta dish I’d made a couple of nights before, so I decided to make Italian beefburgers with rosemary fries on the side.
