Chilli, Garlic and Lemon Mackerel

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Cook the mackerel under the hot grill for 4-5 minutes on each side or place in a fish basket and cook on the barbecue for the same amount of time.

Creamy Spinach Gnocchi

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

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.

Rustic Steak Sandwiches

I love steak sandwiches done right. Make sure you get bread which is crusty but with a nice dough interior, which means you can pick it up in your hands to eat - the only way steak sandwiches were ever meant to be eaten!

Hummus and Crispy Pitta Bread

Serve the dip with an extra drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of coriander on top and the crispy baked pittas on the side.

A treasure from my Christmas Special visit to Austria!

Chorizo, Rocket and Red Onion Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Chorizo is one of my favourite ingredients to use, it provides really delicious smoky flavours and, when fried, renders the most amazing red oil. One of the first few times I visited London, I got myself down to world-famous Borough market where you can pick up some of the best Spanish chorizo outside Spain. This salad is nicest if you can get your hands on some really good-quality chorizo – you will generally find the best stuff in Spanish specialty food shops.

Even the veggie averse may think again...

Mum's Coq au Vin Blanc

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Coq au Vin Blanc was a regular winter dish in my house when we were growing up. I have distinct memories of it steaming up the kitchen windows while we did our homework on the kitchen table. It's a wonderfully warming meal, perfect for cold evenings. Chicken joints such as thighs and legs are often far cheaper to buy than chicken breasts, and meat cooked on the bone always seems to have more flavour.
