Try Something A Little Different

Okay so now the Wedding Season is starting to calm down a bit,
Our chefs have been working on some new ideas for the Autumn and Winter Season

These are some wholesome, fuss free dishes that you can throw together in minutes and taste great.

Above we have Pan Fried Fillet of Sea Bass, Served on a Bed of Rustic Sautéed Potatoes, Vegetables and Tomatoes
Topped with a Sun Blushed Tomato & Pesto Butter

This Dish Is So Simple, Cut up Some Dice Sized Chunks of Potato, Carrot, & Parsnips.
Boil for 5 mins just to allow to soften. Allow to Cool Slightly before frying in hot oil with some finely chopped onion, garlic and a good squeeze of Lemon
Pan Fry the Sea Bass for no more than 4 Minutes allowing skin to get crispy.

For the Butter, you need to soften a pack of butter and basically mash in some chopped sun blushed tomatoes, pesto and seasoning

Serve in whatever fine dining style you wish, or even better layer it all on a platter with some big wedges of lemon and let everyone tuck in

And for the Vegetarians Among Us

Why not try our Char Grilled Vegetable and Mozzarella Stack
This is Served with a Chunky Tomato Provencale, Balsamic & Red Onion Glaze and Fresh Basil

If you have not got a Griddle Pan do not worry, Just lightly Brush some thick cuts of Aubergine, Courgettes and Yellow Peppers with Olive Oil and Place on a Hot Normal Frying Pan. Layer with Buffalo Mozzarella and Bake in the Oven for 15 Mins.
If you have any available, Place a wooden skewer through the centre just to keep it upright whilst cooking
