One of my favourite quick-fix suppers, this is full of fresh flavours and has a nice hum of heat from the chilli flakes. Gnocchi is easy to make yourself, but you can now pick up packets of the fresh variety in most supermarkets. If you happen to have fresh peas growing in your garden, feel free to use them instead of frozen.

Here is an alternative to the standard burger, the chicken of the sea, Mackerel and a tomato based relish, to smear in the Bap. You can modify the flavour of the burgers by using different types of mackerel, different dressing and garnishes. It all depends on individual tastes.
Mussels are available all year round from most good fish mongers. They are a quick and easy meal, be it as a starter to share at a dinner party or a main course, served with home cut chips. They are also very reasonably priced, with a kilo costing around €4.00. Be sure to only use mussels that are fully closed prior to cooking and discard any unopened ones if they have not opened during the cooking process.
