Beer Batter Fish Tacos with Cherry Tomato Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a great recipe of tortillas filled with shallow fried fish goujons, tomato salsa, a little soured cream and some salad. Perfect served with ice cold beer for the grown ups…

Carrot & Courgette Cake with Rosemary & Orange Crème Fraiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Carrot, courgette and cardamom are a wonderful combination of flavours. The cake itself is moist enough but for that extra special touch you can add the delicious rosemary & orange crème fraiche. If you want to go all out, you can make mini carrots and courgettes out of marzipan with a little orange and green food colouring and angelica root for the stalks. This cake will keep in the fridge for 3–5 days.

Rib-eye Steak with Chimichurri

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Chimichurri is a green sauce that is traditionally served with barbecued or grilled meat in Argentina. Rib-eye is my favourite cut of beef for a steak, as it has the perfect balance between flavour and value for money.

Mini Raspberry Swirl Cheesecakes

These delicious single-portion cheesecakes are the perfect summer treat. The pretty swirl created from the raspberry infusion will add a pop of colour to your day!

Lamb Kebabs

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These kebabs are an excellent dish to serve to the whole family or a gang of hungry teenagers. As everything gets cooked under the grill, there's the added bonus of very little washing up to do afterwards.

Watermelon and Feta Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe also works well with Galia or Honeydew melon if watermelon is not in season. You can pare it down to the essential contrasts and serve no more than a plate of chunky watermelon sprinkled with feta and toasted pumpkin seeds that gets drizzled with lime juice at the last minute. Once made, I promise you that it will become a regular favourite on your summer table.

Oatmeal Cookies

These nutritious flapjacks keep very well in a tin. Children love their crunchy texture and they make an ideal addition to any lunchbox.

Vietnamese Pho with Chicken Dumplings and Pak Choy

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful soup/stew to serve to someone who is feeling a bit under the weather. It might sound exotic, but pak choy is now grown very successfully by Irish farmers. Look for it in the supermarket and make sure you check the label to see where it was grown.

Hake with Tomatoes and Mozzarella

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Hake has a lovely soft texture and slight sweetness when it is very fresh. It is highly regarded by chefs as it offers great value for money. Ask your fishmonger for the hake fillets from the centre cut so that they are nice and chunky. This will also help them cook more evenly.
