Lime & Paprika Chicken Fillets

Some nights I need a little inspiration for what to cook for dinner.  On these nights I tend to trawl Pinterest as my go-to site for recipe ideas.  I knew I wanted something healthy and I saw a recipe for paprika crusted chicken nuggets.  I couldn’t eat the breadcrumbs of course but the paprika got me…

Dan’s Super Simple, Spicy Burgers (Chilli & Garlic)

Dan will be the first to admit he’s no chef (although he’s keen to learn!)  but I believe that everyone has at least one special dish in them and this is his…beef burgers that he makes from scratch and grills on the BBQ.  Always a hit with everyone and cooked to perfection every time, it’s…

Mango Salsa

I fancied a change today from my Tomato Salsa so I came up with this mango version of a classic!  Sweeter and more summery than traditional salsa but still packing a punch from the chilli, this is a great alternative and it’s perfect with vegetable crisps, crudités, seafood, you can use it as a topping…

Spicy Chicken Curry with Cauliflower ‘Rice’

I like my curries flavourful and quite spicy.  I’m not a huge fan of the creamy ones or the mild, coconutty ones, I prefer them to pack a punch so I went about creating one to warm us up on a wet, rainy English summer evening! Looking through the spice cupboard, I pulled out all…

Easy Salsa Recipe

I don’t like to buy dips from the supermarket.  I find that 99 times out of 100 they will have sugar added, which is so unnecessary (it hides in everything these days) or some sort of binder like potato starch or maize/rice flour or guar gum or some other strange-sounding ingredients.  To this end I…

Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

Dinner tonight was going to be chicken skewers done on our new BBQ, but the Great British Summer had other ideas!  Not the nicest of evenings so I had a quick re-think and settled on chicken fajitas (done in lettuce wraps for me – tortillas for Dan).  The first job was to marinate the chicken. I…

Easy Guacamole

Heading home for Father’s Day, the plan was for my brother and I to cook lunch for my dad – hopefully a BBQ, but in England you always need a backup plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. Luckily, the weather looked as if it was going to hold out, so that morning my mum…

Chicken Peri-Peri (SCD/Paleo/Gluten Free)

Portugal is my favourite place in the world and I’ve spent many a happy day/night eating chicken peri-peri in restaurants, but never tried to make it myself.  (If you want an insider tip, then head to Marufos in the Algarve – the restaurant looks nothing special but the chicken is the best in Portugal –…
