  • thai fish cakes

    Sesame Thai fishcakes

    These Thai fishcakes with a sesame seed crust are a brilliant twist on a family favourite. Our Thai fishcakes use Pollock, which is a more sustainable choice, but if you had cod or haddock in you the fridge or freezer you could use that instead. We recommend serving the Thai fishcakes with an Asian-style salad, they make a delicious starter and would also be great as part of a party food spread. Why not plan a complete Thai-inspired feast?

This zingy and spicy tuna ceviche dish is perfect for a warm summer evening.

  • Smoked salmon pate

    Smoked salmon pate

    We've used quark, a low fat soft cheese, to make this lighter smoked salmon pate. The combination of both smoked fish and fresh prawns makes this pate fresh and summery, and full of flavour thanks to the fresh dill and capers. Oily fish like salmon are a source of brain boosting Omega-3 fatty acids as well as giving you a dose of vitamin D. If you prefer you could use smoked trout in this recipe instead, it has a similar colour and flavour to salmon with a slight additional earthiness which makes a delicious start to any meal. This is an easy but impressive starter that can be made up to a day ahead, saving you more time last minute when hosting a dinner party. Our recipe makes enough smoked salmon pate for six generous portions, so if you're expecting more guests you could make each pot slightly smaller to stretch round, or increase the quantities if you have lots of extra people.
