    Delicious, fast, flavourful and easy. A minimum of ingredients and dishes are required for this sweet-and-savoury crowd pleaser. Use ordinary basil pesto if you prefer.

    This is not your normal prawn cocktail! This recipe calls for lots of fresh coriander, cucumber, spring onions and chilli which gives the classic a Mexican flavour boost. It's a great colourful starter for a summer dinner party.

    A classic Latin American dish - the seafood is cooked by the acidity of the lime juice. This is so easy to make, but will impress even the most discerning of guests! Fresh ingredients are a must in this recipe.

    Mexican avocado spicy dip served with tortilla chips. Can also use as a topping for jacket potatoes or serve on the side with fajitas or enchiladas. I like it spicy but tend to make it milder when entertaining as not everyone likes it hot.

    This recipe is bursting with flavour! It is fresh and spicy, and did I mention easy? The chillies and Tabasco add heat, and the coriander, lime juice and spring onions create freshness.
