The crunch of the breadcrumb casing, the tender, yielding softness of the white fish within: this is a fish finger taken to the highest level. If you can find the Japanese seasoned breadcrumbs, panko, then get them: they create an almost feathery but crunchy casing. The traditional accompaniment is a sauce tartare, but my favourite sauce is a dill mayonnaise, with perhaps some cornichons heaped on a plate nearby. Consider these a fabulously quick starter when you've got people over or a real treat of a midweek supper for two.
The trick here is to prepare ahead for that. Photo by Lis Parsons. EGGS IN PURGATORY. SCALLOPS AND CHORIZO. Nigella Lawson. THAI CRUMBLED BEEF IN LETTUCE WRAPS.

THIS IS A COOKBOOK. I am not, as a rule, much drawn to the sort of cookbook that has kooky drawings and an "as if written by hand" graphic style.
But there are always exceptions, and this is one of them, simply because of the sheer number of must-cook recipes in it. Not only that, this book seems fired by genuine crusading enthusiasm and too many good ideas to be anything other than celebrated.I almost chose the Grilled Meatball Sandwich for you today (and Korean-Style Short Ribs also nearly made it) but in the end I just could not be deflected from the Linguine with Anchovies, Parsley and Walnuts. CHEDDAR CHEESE RISOTTO. CHORIZO AND CHICKPEA STEW. HAPPINESS SOUP. QUICK CALABRIAN LASAGNE. I do realize that a dish that needs an hour in the oven, might not, at first glance, seem to qualify for the epithet "quick", but I'm not trying to pull a fast one.
All things are relative, and what makes this recipe feel so speedy is that there is no white sauce - with its roux and patient stirring - involved, the meat sauce takes around 5 minutes, and the lasagne sheets are used straight from the packet (no pre-boiling) and cook in the exaggeratedly liquid meat and tomato sauce. The recipe comes courtesy of an Italian informant from Calabria, where sliced cooked ham and hard-boiled eggs are part of the local lasagne. Should you wish to provide a vegetarian version, boost the number of hard-boiled eggs to 6, the mozzarella balls to 4 and dispense with the meat, stirring a couple of canfuls of chopped tomatoes into the passata instead. You could certainly increase the cheese content - perhaps adding a stronger-tasting cheese, too. Photo by Petrina Tinslay. SICILIAN PASTA WITH TOMATOES, GARLIC & ALMONDS. SALT AND PEPPER SQUID. This is unexpectedly easy to shop for as well as easy to cook.
Baby squid (better here than tougher, grown-up, windsock-sized ones) can be found, frozen, in 500g boxes, to be stashed in your freezer and thawed as needed. And while any recipe that involves a pestle and mortar can seem like too much kitchen faffing when you get back from work, let me tell you that a bit of murderous bashing can be a great stress-relieving exercise. But if you're not convinced (and believe me I understand: until recently I had only to read the words 'pestle and mortar' to be filled with dread and intimidation) you can always use one of those little electric coffee-bean or spice grinders for blitzing the salt and pepper.

Close Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind.
Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores. When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
