Salmon with Potato "Scales" Recipe Trim 1 to 2 inches off thinner (belly) side of salmon fillets so that remaining fillets have a more even thickness. Reserve the belly strips for another use. You will now have 2 more square-shaped pieces of salmon fillet. Cut each fillet into 4 roughly equal-size pieces for a total of 8 pieces. Arrange fish, skin side down, on a baking sheet (or 2 dinner plates). Scrub potatoes well. Dip potato rounds, one at a time, in butter and lay slices on top of one piece of fish in an overlapping pattern (to resemble fish scales), covering surface completely. Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in middle. Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until it shimmers (dip a corner of a fish fillet into skillet to test; it should sizzle). Roast fish in oven until just cooked through, 4 to 8 minutes (depending on thickness; a possible visual clue—the better quality the salmon, the less likely you'll see it—is when the white albumin in the fish exudes from the fish and begins to set).

Sweet potato & pear soup with sage My favorite thing about cooking is when things come out of nothing. After the holidays, we had an empty fridge, empty countertops… contents of a meal (or even a snack) nowhere in sight. I had a pear that was on the verge of way-too-ripe, half an onion… and then I noticed a sweet potato that I never remembered buying. The result was a rich & creamy warming meal. INGREDIENTS:Serves 3-4 (or up to 6 as a starter or side) adapted from Sassy Radish 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 medium onion, diced 1 large garlic clove, minced 1 teaspoon garam masala 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/4 teaspoon cayenne 1 large sweet potato (or enough to equal just shy of 1 pound) 1 ripe pear, peeled and chopped 3 cups water 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste 1/4 cup coconut milk (I used regular, light would also work) 4 sage leaves METHOD:Preheat oven to 400. When the sweet potato is done, let cool slightly (until it’s cool enough to touch), peel, and cut into cubes (they will be messy cubes).

Pork chops with chestnut potatoes recipe I like to use Middle White. If you use fresh chestnuts, choose chestnuts that are really firm as they will be tastier. Ingredients 4 thick-cut pork chops, on the bone, cut from the end with the fillet attached, skin removed but fat retained (about 300g each) 20 sage leaves 10 cloves of garlic Rind and juice of 1 lemon 200g large waxy potatoes 250g fresh chestnuts or 200g vacuum-packed chestnuts 1 small onion squash 50ml olive oil 10 juniper berries 6 bay leaves In a large pestle and mortar, roughly crush the sage leaves and three cloves of garlic, then add the lemon rind in big pieces removed with a potato peeler. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and rub onto the pork chops. Leave to marinate while you make the potatoes and squash. Boil a medium pan of water, peel the potatoes and cut them into rough shapes about 5cm square. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Heat a griddle pan or prepare the barbecue.
