Father’s Day Recipe Ideas

This year seems to be running away from us but they say time flies when you’re having fun. It’s Father’s Day on Sunday and for those of you celebrating or marking the occasion, no doubt some of you will be cooking up a storm for him.

My Dad loves fish, as do I………simply baked in foil with a touch of sea salt rubbed into the skin before cooking, for me – is bliss.

So I wanted to share the love and encourage you to treat your Dad (or whoever else you are cooking for!) with a delicious dish. Read on for details of a scrumptious fishy dish, a meaty delight and a fresh but hearty veggie option for those that prefer meat free food.

Wrap your fish – could be a sea bass or bream at this time of year – lay it on the foil and rub in some lovely Cornish sea salt, then wrap to cover it all.

Next, place it in the oven which has been heated to approx. 200 c for 20/30 minutes. You know when it’s cooked if you put a knife to the skin and it comes away easily.

If your Dad prefers meat what about a lovely steak? Choose whichever cut he prefers but make sure you have it a room temperature before cooking – add some seasoning then pan fry as follows – place a mix of oil and butter in the pan and cook as below for 2cm thick steak – adjust if thinner or thicker by a little.

                    Rare                                             –

2 minutes then turn the steak and cook for 1½ minutes

                   Medium                                        –

3 minutes then turn the steak and cook for 2½ minutes

                  Well done                                     –

4 minutes then turn the steak and cook for 3½ minutes

ALWAYS rest the meat for a good 5 minutes before serving – it will cook slightly more and taste so much better.

I like to serve with a fresh mixed salad and a jacket potato……….or even potato wedges………..

If your dad is vegetarian how about some fresh sweetcorn on the BBQ? Make sure you boil it first for 5 minutes then wrap in foil and place on the grill (it won’t char) – get some lovely Portobello mushrooms and rub on a mix of garlic and olive oil – they’re great on the grill too and then when all ready you can serve with salad and jacket spud or wedges…..If you want to add some more colour to your meal try making veggie kebabs using aubergine, courgette and peppers in chunks and on skewers with the garlic/oil mix – yummy!

Above timings for BBQ too………….

I wonder, are you football fans and will you be watching the World Cup? Who do you want to win? I’m supporting England…….and hoping for BBQ weather for the next few weeks.

Whatever you get up to this weekend and for Father’s Day, enjoy it.
