Main Courses

  • bacalhau a bras

    Bacalhau (salt cod), is the national dish of Portugal and Bacalhau à Brás is popular in the capital, Lisbon.

  • hake bake

    A fabulous recipe for low-fat oven-baked fish and chips that uses one pan! This will prove to be a family favourite at the supper table and uses the whole hake in place of cod or haddock fillets, which is a more sustainable fish to use. Children will love its mild taste too.

  • baked whole turbot

    When cooked fresh, turbot meat is subtly flavoured and sweet. (It also stores well and can be kept for a few days due to its mild flavour and high gelatine content.) Turbot can be filleted, then steamed or sautéed. But I like to make serving turbot into a family occasion and roast the fish whole to be shared at the table.

  • mussels on barbeque

    This recipe from the spruce Eats for quick and easy barbequed mussels, even on a disposable one!

  • cassoulet

    This delicious duck dish is fancy enough to impress your friends while equally simple enough to serve up as a family supper. Made with classic French ingredients like Toulouse sausages, garlic, cannellini beans and fresh thyme, this dish is packed full of delicious flavours.
