Fish

FISH is one of those foods that many people don’t eat enough of. It’s easy to cook, tasty and is a fantastic source of protein and healthy fats. I hope you enjoy these mouth-watering recipes.

Thai Tom Yum Soup

Tom Yum soup is a sour spicy Thai soup that is full of healthy ingredients and low in fat. It is fairly easy to make though does call for a lot of ingredients. I think it is well worth it as this is one of my favourite Thai dishes to make. Leave the chilli out if […]

Salmon en Croute

Salmon en Croute (Puff Pastry)

I would class this recipe as simple yet impressive. It is easy to make, esp for dinner parties as you can make them in advance then bake them when needed. See the bottom of the recipe for Gluten free and Lactose free options as well as alternatives for Vegans & Vegetarians You can use any […]

Pad Thai Gluten Free

Pad Thai is probably one of the best known Thai dishes after green and red curries. It is really quick to make and really healthy. It is easy to mess it up so the timing is really important. You should get all the ingredients ready before you start cooking or you will end up with […]

Singapore Noodles

I made this dish for some staff at work once and my sous (second) chef hounded me for the recipe ever since. We met a while back, not long after we published my first book, the first thing he asked me was if the recipe for my Singapore noodles was in the book. He was disappointed to […]

Prawn Linguine

Linguine with Prawns, Chilli & Garlic

Linguine is like spaghetti only slightly flatter so not as rounded. It goes great with seafood especially crab and prawns. This is a really easy dish to make and doesn’t take much time at all so makes a great lunch or even a dinner for those days when you are too busy to make something […]

Seafood Chowder (gluten free)

This is one of my signature dishes. If you like seafood then you really should give this seafood chowder recipe a go, it takes under 10 minutes to cook and tastes amazing. I have had so many compliments when I served it in restaurants over the years, it has also proven to be extremely popular […]

Lobster Ravioli Saffron Cream

In my opinion you can’t beat handmade pasta and ravioli is one of my favourites esp when filled with something as nice as lobster. This dish may seem daunting but believe me, it really isn’t difficult at all. You can order fresh lobster from your fishmongers but there really is no need to put yourself […]

Prawn Toast

Prawn toast is one of those things I love but wouldn’t eat from most Chinese restaurants. Once you try my homemade ones, you will see exactly why and feel the very same yourself. There really is no comparison between homemade and the ones from a Chinese which are either bought in frozen then deep fried […]

Liam’s Thai Chicken or Fish Curry

I love to make and eat Thai food. It is so fresh and filled with wonderful flavours like ginger, garlic, coriander, lemongrass and loads more. I have covered most of the Thai recipes we all know from a Thai red curry to a Massaman curry and even Tom Yum Soup which is a personal favourite. […]

Crab Linguine

If you fancy a little bit of luxury then this is the dish for you, you can pick crab meat up cheap in Lidl and Aldi, though it isn’t as good as what you will get from your local fish monger. If you can’t find linguine, spaghetti or similar will do. I will post a […]

Crispy Cod and Chips

I love making fish and chips at home, it can be expensive to make so I always wait till either cod or hake are on special offer to get my fish otherwise I couldn’t afford to eat things like fresh cod. There are a few stages to this recipe, I recommend you get all your […]

Prawn Cocktail

Prawn cocktail is another classic salad that is really easy to throw together. It’s one you don’t see so often anymore which is such a shame as when made properly it is a great salad or starter. You can use the really small prawns which are called Boston prawns or a bigger prawn like a […]

Gluten Free Breaded Hake

I’m seriously stuffed writing this, I really enjoyed this dish and ended up eating way too much. I have had a lot of requests for a gluten free fish and chips so here it is. I bought a gluten free white loaf in Supervalu, it wasn’t cheap at €1.99 for a very small loaf. I […]

Thai Fish Cakes

These low fat fish cakes are so healthy and amazingly tasty. You will throw them together in a few minutes and can use any white fish. You don’t even have to make a dip as you can use sweet chilli sauce or so what I did (though they won’t be as low fat) and throw […]

Thai Massaman Fish Curry

Thai Massaman Fish Curry

The first time I had a Massaman curry was while I worked in London, I really wanted to learn about Thai food but couldn’t get a job as a chef in a Thai restaurant partially due to the fact that I had no experience and partially because Thai restaurants tend to hire Thai chefs and […]

Thai Coconut Chilli Prawns

Serve as a starter, main course or as a snack with a nice glass of wine or beer, these prawns are quick and dead easy to do. I served mine with a Thai mango salsa though you could just as easily serve yours with sweet chilli sauce or mix 3 parts mayonnaise to 1 part sweet […]

Nasi Goreng

This really popular dish is well worth making. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly easy to make. It is cheap if you leave the prawns out and use all chicken instead. It makes a great family dinner especially midweek when the pennies can be tight. It will also impress friends and family if […]

Moules Marinière with Chilli & Coriander

Moules Marinière is a classic french dish made with mussels, white wine, shallots, garlic, cream and parsley. I’ve loved the dish since the first time I tried them during my first days in a kitchen as a young commis chef all those years ago. I used sneak a few from the pot when no one […]

Smoked Coley, Spring Onion and Potato Pie

Smoked Coley is lovely, it has loads of flavour and is dead cheap. In this recipe I make 250g go a long way as I’m broke this week. I would prefer to double the amount of fish that I used. One of the fantastic things about smoked fish like Coley or Haddock is that they […]

Coconut, Ginger & Chilli Soup with Grilled Chicken & Prawn

It is hard to believe that a soup like the one here can be made in a matter of minutes with zero cooking skills or experience required. This is definately the case here. All you need is a food processor or if you want to you can even use a store bought curry paste like […]

Cod & Prawn Mornay

THIS is a real classic. You don’t see it on menu’s much anymore which is a shame as it is a really nice dish. If you have never heard of it then you really should give it a go, it is a great dish. The fish is cooked in a delicious cheese sauce and served with […]

Salmon Teryaki

Teriyaki Salmon Fillets

This dish is perfect for those who have very little time to cook, yet who want something healthy. You can prepare it in minutes then leave it to the oven to do the rest of the work. Change the veg to suit your own tastes.

Smoked Salmon & Spinach Omelette

Omelettes are a great source of protein and a really quick and cheap meal. You can fill them with your favourite ingredients or just use what is to hand when you are making one. Smoked salmon and spinach are a delicious combination though the smoked salmon will put the price up a bit. I think it […]

Fish fingers

Fish fingers are one of the things that kids go crazy for – they are a dead cert winner evey time. Whether it’s with mash or chips, beans or peas (ketchup is obligatory), if I’m serving them up, I know there will be clean plates left. Making your own is easy. You know exactly what’s […]

Mussel, Smoked Bacon and Potato Chowder

Mussels are one of my favourite things to cook. As far as seafood goes, they’re so reasonably priced and they’re ready in literally minutes. Irish mussels are juicy and plump and are so fresh and delicious you can simply steam them and let the favour speak for itself. Or if you’re looking to create a truly impressive, restaurant […]

Monkfish Cheeks, Spinach, Tomatoes & Bacon Lardons (gf)

THIS fantastic fish normally costs a fortune so is out of a lot of people price range, however Monkfish Cheeks are a lot cheaper and in mine and many chefs opinions they are way nicer. Ask your fishmonger if they have them, if not then ask them to order them in for you. There is a […]

Seafood Pie (Gluten Free)

There is a twist to this seafood pie. This twist makes it easier and quicker to make and adds a new texture to the pie that makes it even better. Instead of topping it with mash or sliced potatoes, I grated them and mixed them with seasoning and a good amount of Swiss Gruyere cheese. […]
