Cooking fish – traditionally by frying – and then submerging it in a ‘souse’ is a very tasty way to prepare it, and was once a means of preserving. Here sardines are grilled and marinated, then served on a Moroccan-spiced couscous, chickpea and pepper salad. It is a perfect prepare-ahead dish for summer entertaining.

An aromatic North African-style casserole, richly flavoured with dried fruits and warmly spiced with ginger and cinnamon. The sweetness of the honey tempers the fiery harissa, and chickpeas add a high fibre carbohydrate to the dish.

This soup is native to Nigeria and many of my British as well as Nigerian friends have enjoyed it. It is a great soup for those who like to try something different every once in a while. Ground egusi seeds give this soup a unique colour and flavour. If you can't find egusi seeds, you can substitute pumpkin seeds. Any combination of crab, prawns and smoked fish can be used in place of the prawns.

Cooking the rice with the rest of the ingredients came from my South African upbringing. It's my family's ultimate comfort food. I often make 2 lots up - 1 for the chili lovers and another (minus the hot stuff) for the chili haters! Both are extremely tasty and easy to prepare. Can be reheated next day too if you make too much! You can also add more veg depending on what's in the fridge.

This delicious stew is inspired by my friend from Sierra Leone who often cooks for her family. Many ingredients can be modified. This is kind of a 'whatever is on hand' recipe. You can use a whole chicken cut into bite-sized pieces, or just breasts and thighs if you prefer. Other suggested additions are turnips, carrots and celery. This looks great served over white rice with a garnish of fresh chopped coriander, parsley or unsalted peanuts.
