White Fish, Tomato & Fennel Tray Bake by Amelia Freer

This is one of my favourite easy fish dishes for the summer-time; the freshness of the herbs and perfectly ripe juicy tomatoes, results in a wonderful tasty liquor. You can use any sustainable white fish: I’ve used pollack, but try brill, monkfish or sea bream. It’s one of those wonderfulContinue reading

Herby Green Bread by Amelia Freer

This delicious green bread is more cakey than bready in texture, because it’s gluten-free. It’s really nice toasted for breakfast with a poached egg, but as it will fall apart quite easily (because of the lack of gluten), it won’t toast very well in a toaster. Instead, put it on a baking sheet under theContinue reading
