This really is a stunning dish, full of freshness with a Japanese twist. Despite tasting so light, you can rest assured that this Honey and Tamari Mackerel is packed full of healthy omega fatty acids whilst the tangy citrus slaw ensures a good boost of fibre, copper, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A & K, ensuring you glow inside and out!
Sometimes all you crave is the good old tradition of a takeaway curry. Usually laden with saturated fats and over-processed ingredients, they can place a huge burden on the digestive system, highlighted by the ‘post curry bloat’ that all too many of us are familiar with.
Cue my version. It tastes beautifully sinful and indulgent, but won’t leave you feeling heavy and tired. Its packed with nutrients and immunity boosting spices, leaving you fresh and revitalised.
Using vanilla in savoury dishes may sound somewhat controversial, but when you consider it, vanilla in itself is not sweet, its just associated with sweet dishes. Here, it adds a mellow roundness to the dish, offsetting the citrus notes of the kaffir lime perfectly. Give it a go, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
When I was given the opportunity to work with Miso Tasty’s new Fermented Miso, I jumped at the chance! Inspired by my travels to Mexico, where I learned how much the Asian culture inspires their food, I created this Mole harnessing the antioxidant properties of high percentage cocoa from the plantations of L’Artisan Du Chocolat. The cocoa mellows the tang of the spices and miso, adding a roundness to the dish.
‘We are eating too much of the wrong thing, and not enough of the right thing’

When my mother was diagnosed with high blood pressure and the prospect of long term Statin use was threatened, it became my mission to control her problem through diet. I researched what I refer to as ‘powerhouse foods’ and revolutionised her diet. Don’t get me wrong, she has always been ‘healthy’ in her diet choices, but just a few tweaks has made the world of difference. Now, her blood pressure is under control, without the intervention of drugs and she is bright and energetic.
How did we do this? It was easy, as we just increased her intake of certain ‘heart healthy’ foods and decreased those which were not so. Out with red meats and processed foods and in with Avocados, Beetroot, Garlic. Cold pressed oils, Almonds, Chia and Oily fish, to name but a few. We also swapped regular salt for Himalayan pink salt, which is unrefined and reduces acidity in the body.
This became the inspiration for this recipe. Avocados are one of the most nutrient dense foods, supplying fibre, potassium, folic acid, vitamins B & E, alongside omega fatty acids. Beetroot has a high beta carotene and folic acid content, whilst dark leafy greens provide a host of phytonutrients. The Mackerel, nuts and seeds provide omega 3 fatty acids which all contribute to cadiovascular health.
All of these, combined with the mellow sweetness of tangerine and the firey zing of wasabi, make this dish an ideal quick supper or lunch for when those unexpected guests pop in. Enjoy, your heart will!
