Salmon trout is such a delicious fish and cooked this simple way the fish will remain juicy and you will get the best flavour and texture.

The tomatoes will add lots of flavour but will also keep the fish juicy and their sweetness and acidity will complement the fish. Do not squeeze lemon on the fish though - it will clash with the tomatoes.

Recipe of the Week: Pork Chop With Portobello Mushrooms and Salsa Verde

Pork chops can be really dry and uninspiring but try cooking them this way so they stay really juicy. When you buy the pork, make sure it has a nice amount of fat on it because fat is flavour when it comes to cooking pork. The salsa verde cuts the richness of the pork and gives off a fresh herby flavour which goes really well with the mushrooms...

I love this dish because it is so easy and very tasty. The great thing about using a pasta shape like Rigatoni is that it will hold the sauce well and has a lovely chewiness when cooked properly. You can make this dish in the same time as takes to cook the pasta so it really is delicious health fast food...

Recipe of the Week: Tagliatelle With Bresaola Radicchio and Rosemary

Theo Randall | Posted 28.02.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a great way to use bresaola with pasta and also a good substitute for pancetta. The meatiness of the bresaola works really well with the bitterness of the radicchio. You could use a pasta like penne but tagliatelle is a bit more luxurious and holds the sauce really well.

This is a really tasty pasta and surprisingly easy to make once you have prepared your artichokes. The trick is to make the artichokes very juicy so the pasta absorbs their flavour. Always use uncooked prawns as they will give you a much sweeter flavour and also a better texture.

This is the best soup to warm you up. Its healthy, filling, vegetarian and very easy to prepare. The swiss chard adds an earthy sweetness to the soup and you can use the cooking water as stock. If you puree half of the soup you get a lovely creamy minestrone that has great texture and flavour.

This is such a simple recipe but is also very impressive. The trick to a good gnocchi is to make sure they are as light as possible and they do not break up. Make sure the gnocchi have sage butter on top as this will make them really delicious. Have a good week!

Fusilli is a brilliant pasta to use because the little spirals get clogged up with the sauce so every mouthful tastes delicious.

Recipe for the Week: Steak With Artichokes, Carrots and Horseradish Sauce

Theo Randall | Posted 19.02.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

Artichokes and carrots are a really good combination. They have a similar texture when cooked this way and the sweetness of the carrot works well with the unique artichoke flavour. Horseradish is delicious with beef but by using bread instead of cream it has a much more heat so be careful how much you serve... Have a good week and Happy Christmas!

This has got to be one of the most simple soups ever. If you are lucky enough to have courgettes growing in your garden use the courgette flowers as well.

This is a lovely spring recipe, particularly if you use the tail of the sea bass like we do in the restaurant. You don't have to, of course, but if you're buying filleted fish it should be cheaper than the middle cut.

This dish is great for two or four people. The time of preparation isn't very long and if you prepare it beforehand you could go out and when you get back home you just pop it in the oven and 14 minutes later its on the table. Also it doesn't make your oven smell!
