I recently visited Blakeney in Norfolk , England, while walking the Norfolk Coast Path. The little seafood stall by the harbour had sold out of crab, so I opted for their Salt and Pepper squid with a Sriracha Mayo. I can honestly say it was one of the best versions i have had so if you go there do try it. In the meantime here is a version from ” Nigella Bites” by Nigella Lawson.
A version of a favourite tipple from ” Nigella Bites” by Nigella Lawson. To make your own chilli vodka steep dried chilli peppers in a bottle of vodka for a few days. You could also use Horseradish Vodka as an alternative to the Chilli Vodka.
A light and refreshing starter or side salad which goes well with grilled chicken or fish. It’s from ” Wahaca Mexican Food at Home” by Thomasina Miers.
A recipe from the excellent book ” Home Food” by Olia Hercules. It can be served with grains such as couscous or freekah but also with rice, boiled and crushed potatoes or flatbreads . Lamb shanks can be used as a cheaper alternative to shoulder if you like. If you like you can shred the cooked lamb and mix it with the juices up to a day before and keep in the fridge, then just reheat in a lidded pan with a splash of water mixed in, or in a foil baking tray, before serving.
These are great for snacks , lunchboxes and picnics. The recipe is from ” Home Food” by Olia Hercules.

Another favourite Armenian side dish from ” Home Food” by Olia Hercules. If fresh beans are not available you can use frozen. You can also poach some eggs in the dish to serve as a brunch or supper. You can serve with fresh bread or flatbreads. If you have leftover beans you can reheat the next day and whisk through some beaten raw eggs to make a version of scrambled eggs.
