SMOKED FISH QUICHE

When I read this recipe my first thought was to use smoked cod, but of course that’s only one type of smoked fish.  You could also use smoked trout or smoked salmon, really whichever you like best.  Served with a salad it would make a great summer dish.

PATE

You can see from the typing that this is an old recipe. I used to make it back in the 70s and 80s and serve it as an entree with thin slices of toast.   It was cheap and easy to make – ideal.  I rediscovered it this year and now make it to have with drinks.  It freezes well so I just put out what I need and keep the rest for later.  If you don’t want to do that you can easily halve the recipe.

GARLIC AND LEMON LAMB KEBABS

This recipe is from a Women’s Weekly Let’s Go Greek supplement.  I tend to think of kebabs as mainly being cooked on the barbeque, but this recipe cooks them in a pan and then the oven with the marinade poured over at the end.  It makes them an all year round feast, not just for summer barbeques.

 

OCTOPUS IN RED WINE

Unless you’ve already bought 2kg of baby octopus it’s too late to make this recipe for Easter, but don’t worry it’d be good at any time of the year.  It comes from a Women’s Weekly ‘Let’s Go Greek!’ supplement, I like it because it gives clear instructions on how to prepare the baby octopus.

HERBED GARLIC BREAD

I’m lazy these days and buy prepared herb or garlic bread at the supermarket, but back in the 1970s you had to make your own.  This recipe is slightly different because it has both the garlic and herbs in the one loaf.  It says to slice the breadstick lengthwise, butter it and then cut into serving size pieces, again not what we usually did.  Think I’d stick to just cutting it into serving size pieces and definitely wrap it in foil before you put it in the oven otherwise you’ll have butter everywhere.
