Finger Food and Sharing Plates

Vindaye Tuna

A mouth watering delicacy of Mauritius. Typically made in advance and left to allow the flavours to work together, this is usually served with a big crusty baguette or you can eat it with Roti or Puri. Whatever you decide to eat it with you’ll always be happy to know your fridge has this for any rainy day fridge raid!

Salt & Chilli Crab

​A hot and messy savoury snack perfect for diving in, a shameless party finger food.

Chilli Stuffed Sardines

​I was brought up eating quite a bit of tinned fish, mainly because fresh fish was so expensive when I was a child. Because of this, I’m partial to tinned sardines and pilchards. I know it sounds a bit retro but you get an intense flavour from tinned sardines, which works perfectly with the piquancy of the chilli. You could make a vegetarian version of this dish using a mix of beans instead of the sardines. Extracted from ‘Sunshine on a Plate’

Feta and Sweetcorn Fritters

I made up this dish from some leftover feta and sweetcorn I had in the fridge - my girls were coming over in the evening and it was a quick starter which they loved.

Spicy Aubergine Fritters

I love aubergines, particularly the finger aubergines which tend to be sweeter in flavour - you can find these in specialist Asian supermarkets
