  • 3 portions which cold be used as an accompaniment or as a veggie meal
  • 50 a head
  • 500 g ready-made puff pastry
  • 700 g to 750g salmon fillet, boned and skinless (or salmon steaks, skinless and boned)
  • 100 g cooked Basmati rice
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon large bunch of watercress, about 200g, chopped finely
  • small bunch of spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 50 g butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten with a little milk (to glaze)
  • Note An elegant and delicious twist on the classic Salmon Coulibiac; this version is less rich and uses fresh seasonal watercress as a base for the rice filling, as well as spring onions. Can be served warm or cold and freezes beautifully.
  • 450 g broad beans
  • 450 g new potatoes, scrubbed and cut into small pieces if large
  • 200 g carrots, peeled and cut into small batons
  • 50 g butter
  • fresh chives with chive flowers (snipped into small pieces)
  • Note A delightful medley of early summer vegetables that are all dressed in chive butter - perfect as an accompaniment to fish, especially salmon and roast chicken, as well as tarts and quiches.
  • 16 to 20 amaretti biscuits (crumbled)
  • 600 mls extra thick double cream
  • 400 g fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced (mixed with 2 tablespoons icing sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • whole fresh strawberries (for garnish)
  • Note This deceptively easy to assemble dessert makes the most of seasonal strawberries - served "trifle" style in water glasses, if you want to make the dessert more "grown up", add some sherry or liqueur of your choice.
