Lemon, Honey & Thyme Rack of Lamb
Wow it was devoured very quickly!
My rack of lamb weighed just over 900 grams. Marinated for 2 hours in equal quantities of olive oil; honey and lemon juice plus 3 cloves of grated garlic; a good tblsp of chopped thyme; zest of 1 lemon; salt and pepper to taste; 1/2 tsp of chilli flakes.
Put the lamb on a wire tray over a roasting tin and cook for 25 minutes at 200 degrees. Rest for 10 minutes.
Bubble the juices for a minute or two to create a sauce.&n...
Quick & Easy Mango Chutney
Yum! Just as good alongside the pakoras as it was to cool the fire from the butter chicken. Butter Chicken recipe will be posted soon.
So much tastier than shop bought and ready in minutes. I doubt it would keep long, the quantity I made filled the jar just over half full. As you can see there isn't much left!
Pour 150mls of white wine or cider vinegar into a saucepan. Add a small finely chopped onion, a clove of grated garlic and a knob of grated ginger.
These, for us, are the perfect sailing lunch/snack. Today was blowing a steady 7 gusting 9 in the marina and I was bored so here you go - pasties!
To make 6 pasties I used one medium sized potato, 2 small carrots and 1 red onion plus 200g of beef and 2 rolls of shop bought puff pastry as well as an egg for glazing. Flavour combinations are endless, chicken & mushroom; beef and blue cheese or strictly vegetarian. Method and cooking time remains the same, fill ya boots ...
Roasted Coconut Cauliflower
Fragrantly spiced cauliflower florets with just the right amount of crunch, delicious!
Break half a large cauliflower into florets. In a bowl mix grated ginger; garlic and chilli to suit your taste. Add 2 tblsp each of coconut oil; light soy sauce and coconut milk plus a squirt of Agave syrup or honey. Mix and add extra chilli if wanted, I put some dried chilli flakes in. Massage the cauliflower to coat well, leave for up to a day for flavours to develop.

Curried Roast Chicken
I'm a huge fan of one pot cooking, preferably those that slow cook filling the air with delicious aroma. Hopefully you've got a pot big enough to hold the sauce and chicken, saves washing up! Best of all knowing all the work is done and, if you're not too greedy, this one is enough for three meals! Roast today, chicken pot pie in a couple of days then a base for a fantastic curried soup.
I made the spice mixture but you could substitute Massaman curry paste for speed?
