00Air Fryer King Prawn TacosKing Prawns can be expensive but now and again, you get them on offer or reduced, and you want to make the most of them without ruining their delicate flavours. This recipe shows them off perfectly. I've kept this very simple by just using a few ingredients to marinade the Prawns with and pairing it with a little salad and some crunchy Tortilla crisps for added bite. Tacos are a great summer dish that's light, full of flavour and very versatile. You can add any toppings you fancy or keep it simple with just a green salad. The choice is entirely up to you and your families tastes. You can make it fun by putting everything on a board and letting them fill their own Taco shells, or wrap in greaseproof or foil for an authentic street food vibe.

00Steam Airfried Basa Fillets with a Medley of Mediterranean VegetablesThis is a one pot dish that's oh so simple but bursting with fresh flavours. It's perfect for a date night, quick lunch or just a light bite. I decided to use the Steam Airfry as both the potatoes and fish were delicate so needed a gentler form of cooking, but you can totally do this in your oven or on the hob if you dont have the Foodi. I've used basa fillets(river cobbler) as they are relatively cheap,mild in flavour with a firm texture that's robust enough for the Airfryer but you can totally change this for salmon,trout or any fish you prefer.... If using skinless fish then place it on some parchment paper so it doesn't fall through the grill rack onto the vegetables below. I cooked the fish for 8 minutes but it probably could have done with a minute or 2 less....but its all a learning curve isn't it? So bear with me whilst we learn together. If doing more than 2 fillets then best to do them in batches so they cook evenly. I added a little extra veg to the pot too, that needed using up so feel free to do likewise, or just ignore. This is a very easy dish to adapt to your tastes. Swap the fish, swap the veggies, swap the olives for green beans or leave them out if you dont like them etc. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below.

00Air Fryer Coconut Prawns with a spicy mayo dipIf your new to air frying or just use it for basic cooking - for chips, nuggets etc then this recipe is for you. It's easy, speedy and best of all full of flavour. The step by step picture guide let's you follow the recipe easily and allows you to tailor it to suit your machine, whether it's a simple Air fryer or a multi cooker, like the Ninja Foodi. As with almost all of our recipes you can adapt it to suit your needs too by swapping the panko for regular or homemade breadcrumbs, or using cooked prawns instead of raw- adjusting the cooking times accordingly, If you don't like coconut then just use all breadcrumbs.

00Battered Prawns with Crispy KaleFind some prawns in the reduced section? Then grab a bag of Kale and you can try this recipe This is a great recipe when you want something a little bit different. You can have it as a main meal, lunch or just a snack. I flatten the Prawns out, as I think it looks better, but you don't have to. It doesn't affect the taste. I've also added some vine tomatoes to the oven along with the kale but again that's optional. If you like a little spice then add some chilli flakes. I've used a shallow pan for frying then finished off in the oven so you dont need too much oil. This feeds 2 but can easily be adjusted to feed 4 by increasing the ingredients.

00Fish in Parsley SauceThis is really a deconstructed Fish Pie without the topping. I had intended on using white fish but found a packet of fish pie mix and a bunch of parsley in the reduced section of the supermarket and thought " why not use that instead" I was not disappointed as it was delicious. I love how the rich colours of the fish stand out against the creaminess of the sauce and then adding the extra green veg deepens the colour of it. This is easily adapted to suit you and your families tastes by using a different fish, adding some prawns or just a plain white sauce rather than the parsley sauce. You could also add some cream for a touch of luxury. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback. E x
00Halogen Baked Cod with Grapefruit SalsaDelicate Cod with a sweet tangy grapefruit salsa is a lovely refreshing addition to your usual dinner time menu. Using frozen Cod fillets, its relatively cheap and is speedy too, which is always a bonus I love how versatile it is. It has a mild flavor with a flaky consistency.  My favorite way to prepare cod is either poached or oven baked. I've served this with salad and crusty bread but it's yummy with rice, especially coconut rice or roast potatoes. Ive used Cod but you could use any white fish, Salmon or even Tuna. It really is versatile and can easily be tailored for you and your families tastes. You can do this in a conventional oven also. This recipe feeds 2 but can easily be adjusted to feed 4.

00Pesto crusted Cod HashI set out to use some Cod fillets I had and top it with maybe Pesto, then use what I could find in the fridge to cobble together a dinner. So, I added in a tin of new potatoes and a bit of bacon, but after baking them separately I thought, why not combine this into a hash? so I did lol. You can of course do this at the beginning instead of halfway through as I did lol making it a one pot meal. This feeds 2 but it's easy to double up on the quantities to feed 4. Combining the unique sun-dried tomato, garlic & cheesy flavours of pesto with smoky bacon and the delicate flavours of cod this dish is full of yummy flavours. It's speedy and filling and using frozen cod fillets can be very economical. Its also easy to adapt by swapping cod for pollock or salmon, green pesto for red or bacon for pancetta. You can bulk it out by adding extra vegetables too and even a sprinkle of Parmesan.. It really is very versatile and its easy to adapt to you and your families tastes.

This is packed full of goodness from the fish to the veg,has a little spice and some zesty lemon flavours so it's a great treat for the tastebuds. Its a family friendly recipe that you can tailor for your children's likes as well as the adults. Its also quick to cook which is always a bonus. Dont be put off by the spices- I've added my favourite blend but you can just use a tikka paste and skip step 1.Why not give this a try and let us know how you find it.
