Tray Baked Moroccan Salmon & Rice
Heat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.
Roughly chop 2 of the Cooks&Co Green Frenk chillies and put them in a large roasting tray, approximately 25cm x 35cm. Cut the courgette in half lengthways and then cut into half-moon slices. Add to the tray along with the rice, Cooks&Co Roasted Pepper strips, preserved lemon, olives, dried spices and pour over the stock. Briefly stir everything together. Cover the tray with a piece of foil, wrapping tightly to prevent any steam escaping. Put it in the oven for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine and mix the harissa, yoghurt and a pinch of salt and use this to coat the salmon all over.
Remove the tray from the oven, take off the foil, taking care as the hot steam escapes and sit the salmon on top, spreading excess yoghurt on top of the fillets. Season with salt and black pepper and drizzle the whole thing with a little olive oil. Return to the oven and cook for a further 20 minutes.
Lift the salmon onto serving plates. Run a fork through the rice to separate the grains and serve scattered with pistachio nuts, a squeeze of lemon juice and extra chillies.
Kedgeree With Watercress
Heat the milk and around 50ml of water in a large pan on a low heat. Add the fish, skin-side down, and poach for around 5 minutes. Remove carefully and flake it – set aside and reserve the liquid for later.
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion before adding garlic, ginger, turmeric and curry powder. When the onion is soft, add the rice and allow it to soak up the flavours in the pan.
Make the reserved poaching liquid up to around 150ml to 200ml with water before adding it to the pan. Simmer for around 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a pan of boiling water, boil the eggs for around 6 minutes – this should give you a gooey yolk (although you can boil for longer if you prefer.)
Once the rice is cooked, stir through the haddock and watercress. Quarter the cooked eggs and place on top to serve.
Vegetable Provençal Boursin Tian
Slice the aubergine and place face down in the tin, generously season with salt and leave to soak and release moisture.
Place the rice in a pan, with 300ml of water, ½ tsp of salt, cover and bring to boil.
Once it is boiling, remove from the heat and leave for 10 minutes covered.
Wash and slice courgettes, tomatoes, onions and garlic. Rince the aubergines, pat dry with a kitchen towel and brush with some olive oil.
Preheat the oven to 189°C/Gas Mark 4. To assemble the Tian, drizzle some olive oil at the bottom of the tin, spread the cooked rice and crumble the 2 tbsp of Boursin on top.
Cover the rice with the vegetable slices, tomato, courgette, aubergine, onion, garlic then drizzle with olive oil, herbes de provence, and season well with salt and pepper.
Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour and serve hot.
Roasted Red Pepper Risotto
Place the stock cubes in a large bowl with 900ml of boiling water and mix until well dissolved.
Place a pan over a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Once warm, add the chopped garlic, onion and a pinch of salt, mix well and cook for 5-10 minutes until soft.
Once the onion has become soft, stir through the risotto rice and paprika, and cook for 2 minutes before adding a quarter of the hot vegetable stock.
Mix well and leave to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring constantly and topping it up with a quarter of the stock every time the risotto rice looks like it has absorbed most of the water.
While the risotto rice simmers, place all of the paste ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth, adding a dash of water to create a red paste.
Once the risotto rice feels soft and has absorbed all of the water, stir through the red pepper paste and parmesan (or nutritional yeast).
Cook for 5-10 minutes until everything is piping hot and cooked through.
Rice Salad With Salmon, Greens & Lemon Tahini Dressing
To make the rice salad, cook the rice as per the pack instructions. Drain and set aside.
In the meantime, pan fry the salmon steaks in a little oil for 2-3 minutes on each side. Set aside and flake up when cool. In a separate frying pan, add the onion and fry for 5-6 minutes. Now add the cabbage and courgette and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add in the cooked rice.
To make the dressing, add all the ingredients to a jar and mix to combine.
Add the rice and greens to a large bowl, add the flaked salmon and toss lightly to combine. Serve with dressing and fresh mint.
