Flash Baked or Roast Haddock with Roast Pepper, Basil and Olive Salsa

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

This is a great technique for cooking fillets of fish which are not particularly thick and which don't stand up so well to pan frying or grilling – so haddock is perfect here. I serve the fish and salsa with a green vegetable, and romanesco when in season is a particular favourite.

Pilaf Rice

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

This technique for cooking rice provides a rich, delicious and flavoursome result. The technique can be used to create many different variations on the theme and depending on the additions to the rice while cooking, the pilaf can be served as a rice dish to accompany other meat, fish or vegetable dishes or can itself be the main event for an informal lunch or supper. The possible additions to a pilaf are many, and you can think about those in the same way as you would a risotto and, indeed, the two dishes have similarities. Try to keep vegetable additions in season.

Casserole Roast Chicken with Indian Spices

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

Sometimes when I want a spiced chicken dish, I want a 'no-holds-barred' hot and aromatic experience. At other times, I am in the mood for tender and succulent slices of chicken with a lightly spiced, thin cream or juice to accompany it. This recipe is the latter. The chicken is casserole roasted with a light sprinkling of spices and fragrant green chillies. The spiced cooking juices, with the addition of cream, become the light sauce. The chillies will collapse in the cooking, but infuse the sauce with their own special flavour. Some will want to eat the cooked chillies, others will avoid them. Serve this dish with a plain Pilaf Rice.

Grilled Fish with Herb Relish

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

This way of cooking fish is perceived as being rather old fashioned, but if you have a really fresh fish, it can be fabulous and quite contemporary in its simplicity. Hake, cod, ling and mackerel are all delicious cooked in this way. The relish served here is classic, and when properly prepared, it will remind you why herbs, butter and lemon will always have a place at the table when fresh fish is being served.

Serve with your homemade tartar sauce and a wedge of lemon.

Lamb Koftas

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

I like to roll these into little balls the size of a large grape. They can, of course, be made bigger into burger or sausage shapes. Serve these strewn over a salad of purslane leaves with a yoghurt dressing.

Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon on Grilled Sourdough Bread

From: How to Cook Well, with Rory O'Connell

The scrambled eggs can be prepared in advance as the cream in the recipe prevents the eggs from setting into a hard mass. Smoked Mackerel is an excellent substitute for the salmon.
