Onion and Tahini Crusted Mackerel Recipe

•4 fillets of mackerel (trout is a suitable alternative)
•4 onions
•4 cloves of garlic
•2 tbsp olive oil
•2 tbsp lemon juice
•1 ½ tbsp tahini
•Salt and pepper

1.Peel and slice the onions into rings
2.Peel and finely chop the garlic or crush it through a garlic press
3.Gently sauté the onion and garlic until softened but not brown
4.Remove from heat
5.When it’s cooled a little, mix in the tahini and lemon juice and season well with the salt and pepper and blend together well
6.Put the fish fillets on a greased baking tray and then spread the tahini mix over the top of them
7.Bake in the oven on gas mark 4, 180 C, 350 F for half an hour or so until the fish is cooked
8.This fish dish can be served as either a starter, with a little bit of green salad on the side, a lunch dish with olive oil roasted cherry tomatoes and a hunk of granary bread, or as a main course with rice and peas
9.As an alternative to fish, the onion and tahini sauce could also be used to top chicken drumsticks or filleted chicken breasts.

Grilled Aubergine and Sesame Dip

•1 aubergine (eggplant)
•2 cloves garlic
•2 tbsp tahini
•2 tbsp lemon juice
•1 tbsp sesame seeds
•Salt and black pepper

1.Toast the sesame seeds lightly for a few minutes either in the oven or under the grill but try not to let them brown because they will become bitter
2.Make slits in the skin of the aubergine to stop it exploding under the heat of the grill and gently grill until it’s cooked through
3.Allow it to cool then remove the skin and put the vegetable flesh in a liquidiser along with the tahini, lemon juice, garlic and a couple of twists of salt and pepper
4.Whiz up into a smooth paste, stir in the toasted sesame seed and serve as a first course dip with thin strips of carrot, cucumber and pitta bread or even on top of blini, garnished with a sprig of parsley or a tiny twist of fresh lemon
5.This would also be nice served in the middle of a hot, cooked globe artichoke for lunch
