Maple & Mustard Glazed Salmon (3 Ingredients)
This is the easiest and most simple recipe to make and tastes wonderful. I tagged this one from a chef I have made a few recipes from in the past and I have never been disappointed, she has some great ones. Whilst this recipe was fab as is, I think next time I make this I would like to add some lemon juice and also some minced garlic. I served ours with seasoned roasted potatoes and snow peas with tomatoes. To view more photos of this recipe or read more reviews please click here.

4 Salmon fillets, with skin on
2 Tablespoons coarse grain mustard
1 Tablespoon maple syrup

I think some lemon juice and minced garlic would be a nice addition to the glaze as well. I used the same amounts listed above for 2 fillets but mine were quite large weighing just over 300g each fillet.


1. Preheat grill to high.

2. Mix together the mustard and maple syrup.

3. Place the salmon fillets (skin side down) in a baking dish or on a shallow tray that has been lined with aluminium foil.

4. Spread the mustard and maple mixture evenly over the tops of the salmon fillets.

5. Grill/Broil for 10 minutes or until cooked through. The time taken will depend on the size of the fish. (Make sure fillets are as equally sized as possible to ensure the same cooking time for all.)

To Serve: Serve fillets with a salad or green vegetables. I served ours with seasoned roasted potatoes and snow peas with tomatoes.

Delicious Four Cheese Quiche

This was another recipe tag I made, this was the first recipe I have tried by this chef and it was really good. I did up the ingredient amounts as I made a very large quiche so I had enough for us for dinner and also to take to the park the next day. I also used Gruyere cheese for the gouda just because I had that in my fridge. It came out so light and fluffy and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

1/2 (250 g) Packet phyllo pastry (I used Puff pastry)
50g Gouda cheese (I used Gruyere )
50g Parmesan cheese
25g Emmentaler cheese
50g Feta cheese
2 Onions
1 Leek
200g Whipping cream
125ml Milk
3 Eggs

As stated above I upped all the amounts so I made 1 large quiche.


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Cut onions, leek and feta cheese into small cubes. Grate gouda, emmentaler and parmesan cheese finely.

3. Line a round spring form (aprox. 26 cm diameter) with the phyllo pastry.

4. Mix together the eggs, the milk and the cream. Blend in the cheese (best using your hands).

5. Pour the mixture into the spring form and bake for about 35 minutes or until the filling has set and is golden-brown.
