Prawns in Tomato Sauce (4)

A recipe from my local Vietnamese chef Trung. During Lockdown he started doing the most yummy Vietnamese food for collection from his home once a week . It was up there with the very best Vietnamese food I have eaten here or there , and the portions were so generous they lasted us two days. In a few days time he will be opening his own restaurant in Bristol- The Saigon Kitchen- and I cant wait to try even more of his cooking.

Langoustines with Roast Lemon Butter (2-4)

In June 2021, as the UK was beginning to venture out after our third Lockdown, we made our first visit to Northumberland to walk the coast path from Cresswell to Berwick on Tweed. A foodie highlight of the trip for me was the langoustines I had at The Fish Shack in Amble where we had to plead for an early table to get a look in. They are very good served with mayonnaise , but I also like this recipe from ” butter” by James Martin. And I could probably manage the whole lot myself.
