Prawns with Lemon and Parsley

This simple meal offers a huge amount of flavour. The ingredients are fresh and zingy, perfect for summer, and it’s cooked in no time at all. In fact it’s the perfect mid-week meal for all the family. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 10 minutes Serves 4 Ingredients 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil…

Paleo Beef Curry

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. Did you miss me? 🙂 The reason for my absence, is because I’m working on a new project at home (more of that in future posts). As a result, I’ve simply not had the time, or energy, to photograph and write about all the grub-tastic…

Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

Another great dish for a dinner party. Choose wild salmon fillets from your fishmonger. You can’t beat the taste, and they’ll be much bigger than those you’ll find in the supermarket. The pistachio crust can be prepared the night before. Just cover the dish with clingfilm and pop it in the fridge overnight. NB. Shelled…

Pork Chops with Balsamic Glaze

Another incredibly easy dish which can be prepared the night before. This works well served with lots of vegetables. I chose marsh samphire as I’d bought a huge bag of it from my local grocery store. I also used it in the salmon dish yesterday. Serves 4 Prep: 15 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes 4 boneless…

Paleo – Week 2

I’m enjoying the paleo lifestyle so much that I’ve decided that I’ll probably stick with it – forever! I absolutely love the food choices and can’t believe I’ve not missed eating bread, and more importantly, lentils and chickpeas! I’ve still enjoyed the odd glass of wine or three; old habits die hard! But in the…

Beef Sirloin with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Another paleo favourite! A succulent beef sirloin with spicy tomato sauce that packs a punch! This dish can be prepared the night before, and left in the fridge to marinate. Serves 4. Prep: 20 minutes. Cooking: 15 minutes Ingredients 4 beef sirloin medallions 2 large beef tomatoes 2 tsp chilli powder 2 tsp onion powder…

Orange-Rosemary Seared Salmon

If my taste buds could talk, they’d be screaming “Yay! It’s summer!” I’m not joking! This dish is perfect for this time of year and it’s so quick and easy. It’s packed full of goodness and flavour too. My family tell me it’s like eating in a restaurant, it’s so grub-tastic! They’re biased I know,…

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

What can I say? Another 10/10 for this grub-tastic! meal from my family. I made this on a Sunday, but it’s a dish that could easily be made during the week, providing you have a slow cooker. Most good supermarkets stock slow cookers, and they’re priced at around £15.00, so it’s a good investment if…

Paleo Homemade BBQ Sauce

My family say this is the best BBQ sauce they have ever tasted. High praise indeed! And best of all, you can enjoy this knowing that it’s completely free of preservatives or refined sugars. Make this in bulk, bottle it up, and store in the fridge for up to one month! Serves 4 Ingredients 355…

Chorizo & Roasted Potato Salad

My family gave this dish 10/10 so I’m pretty confident you’re going to love it too! The sweet potatoes soak up so much flavour which contrasts beautifully with the peppery rocket leaves. It really is grub-tastic! Serves 4. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes. Ingredients 2 large sweet potatoes (or 4 small) rocket salad…

Dried Fuit & Nut Balls

These yummy little dried fruit and nut balls are packed full of nutrients and fibre. Great for your lunch box or for taking on a picnic. Use whatever dried fruit and nuts you have in your store cupboard, but I recommend using Medjool dates and dried apricots as their gooey texture holds the ingredients together…

Plantain and Sausage Hash

The key to getting this recipe perfect is by using quality sausage meat. And by that, I mean a trip to your local butcher’s shop. You can use whatever sausages you like, Italian, pork and black pudding, or as I’ve used here, Moroccan spiced sausages. My local butcher, Axons of Didsbury, have a wall full of…
