Curried Fish Pie

Serves 8.


    Food is my life. I love sweet potatoes. Jamie Oliver is my secret boyfriend. Okay, so the first two are true. But I do rely on Jamie occasionally for some culinary inspiration. This fish pie was inspired by Jamie and lightened up by yours truly. It’s super easy to make and oh so tasty. A great potluck item, this shareable main dish pairs well with a salad or some green beans.


    This fish pie freezes well, so feel free to make a few smaller versions and store.

    Open-Faced Breakfast Sandwiches with Asparagus and Spring Microgreens

    Eggs and asparagus are so quintessentially spring and nothing could be easier to prepare than this simple yet elegant dish that works as well for breakfast as for a light lunch. The earthy flavours of asparagus are complemented by a light dressing of licorice-scented tarragon and a little dash of heat. To make this dish more filling, choose a hearty whole grain bread as the base of your sandwich. One with a blend of ancient grains including spelt or khorasan wheat (Kamut) is particularly nice. Springtime presents a wonderful opportunity to experiment with a host of different microgreens. Spicy radish microgreens or bright, young pea shoots work equally well in this dish. Dry your eggs Ensure you won’t add any extra moisture to the dish by carefully drying eggs before placing on your plates. Using slotted spoon, remove eggs from water, allowing the bulk of the water to drain over the saucepan. Lay slotted spoon on a kitchen towel and gently roll the spoon to allow each egg to come to rest on the towel. Pat the top of the egg gently and lift the towel to roll each egg back onto the spoon and place on your dish.
