Crab in Filo

This little canape is very light and delicate and if you have a stash of baked filo cases, its very very quick to make. If you don't have any baked filo cases, be sure to make extra this time. They keep in an airtight tin almost for ever and they are a great standby to spoon something delicious into. The crab salad can also be used as a delicious make ahead starter, the quantity below would serve 4. At a recent class, we spooned the crab into a ring and then poured a small quantity of cucumber gazpacho around. It looked very pretty dressed with a few small leaves. Ingredients - makes approximately 20 Filo pastry Grape seed oil or other mild oil or melted butter 100g tub of Fifty Fifty crab

Char Sui Pork Skewers

Chinese New Year which begins on 16th February is a time for big family celebrations in China and Hong Kong and actually a quarter of the world. Each Chinese year is associated with an animal sign and this coming year is the Year of the Dog, an animal that symbolises luck, which must be good news. There are many different foods that are eaten traditionally and I am not sure that my version of Char Sui pork skewers is one.

The recipe comes from a friend's mother in law, who has been baking them for friends and family in South Africa for decades - so a big thank you to Jane and Elaine for allowing me to share them. Ingredients - makes approximately 20 biscuits 40g chilli flavoured crisps 25g butter 30g self raising flour 50g strong cheddar, grated 0.5 tsp dry mustard powder 0.5 tsp poppy se

Lemon Grass Prawn Skewers

There are a few recipes around for these delicious prawn skewers, but they all seem to be cooked under the grill or in a griddle pan, so in the interest of keeping things simple, I have tried baking them - and it works. They may not brown quite the same, but they taste just as delicious nevertheless. To help simplify things further for the busy cook, they can be made up several hours ahead and kept chilled in the fridge until just before cooking. Ingredients - makes 8 skewers 125g peeled un-cooked prawns 2 lemongrass 5g grated ginger 1 small spring onion, chopped 1 tbs fish sauce 1/4 small red chilli, chopped 1/2 tsp cornflour 1 tbs shredded basil Thai dipping sauce to serve Method If the
