Our March blog featured an awesome wild garlic pesto recipe- use it now for a crispy coating for white fish.
Wild garlic pesto is a firm favourite and a simple way for us all to get this super spring ingredient into our diet without trying too hard. Whizz up wild garlic leaves, pine nuts, olive oil and parmesan in a food proccessor, season to taste and you have a perfect pesto at your fingertips that can be added to pasta, drizzled over tomatoes and Mozzarella, or spread over sourdough.
A few weeks back we had the pleasure of sharing our passion for wild food with the lovely Alice Levigne, Radio 1 presenter and one half of the fabulous foodie duo Jackson & Levigne. After a day on the high seas fishing & foraging on the kayaks around Dorsets iconic landmark Old Harry Rocks we decided to treat her to one of our favourite dishes; tomato spinach & chive salad with barbecued mackerel & lashings of our wild pesto. It’s one of the simplest and yet tastiest dishes to feast on and looks almost too pretty to eat (well almost!)
Sea bass is always at the top of our catch it wish list when we head out on the kayaks in Dorset. This bbq sea bass recipe is one of our favourites as it ticks all the taste bud tingling boxes; it’s fresh, it’s cooked over fire and it’s full of flavour. Triple win.
Sea spaghetti was one of the seaweed stars from last weekends kayak foraging trip to the beautiful and bountiful Old Harry Rocks in Dorset and this week it made it onto the family table as one of Fores firm favourites…even the smalls dig (into) this!
This Friday forage is one from the salty sea gods…packed with our favourite wild ingredient seaweed, well Porphyra (if you’re feeling techy) this species is one of our winter staples, found growing in abundance along the rocky shore, the colour and shape of this species is variable as there so many different varieties but typically it thrives in cold shallow water between the upper intertidal and splash zone, so don your wellies for this forage.
We can’t help keeping our eyes peeled for fodder wherever we go and this sunday supper sees us celebrating a family forage with a moules mariniere feast fit for any self respecting king worthy of the name Neptune.
You know by now what our sunday suppers are all about, but just in case here’s a little recap to remind you. We reckon by the time sunday comes you don’t want to be hanging around the stove all night when there’s pjs and cocoa to be had.
Grab your fishing line and your bucket, your wellies and your woollies. This week’s recipe is for your beach holidays and for the coastal dwellers and is as simple as Simon…
