A beautifully simple preparation of raw fish that is a celebration of freshness. The thing I love about this dish is the magic worked by the lemon juice. As well as imparting sharp fresh flavour, the acid in the lemon juice affects the protein in the fish, causing a "cooked" texture on the surface of the meat whilst leaving the centre rare and soft.
Fresh chopped tomatoes work nicely blended into a classic guacamole. Serve with tortilla chips for an easy, festive nibble.
A quick, simple recipe for a tasty guacamole with tomatoes. Serve with tortilla crisps for a festive party nibble.
If you're looking for the real deal, this authentic houmous is it. A family recipe, it's made just the way houmous should be - with tahini, lemon juice and garlic.
I make this houmous all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier than shop-bought without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the chillies! Serve with tortilla crisps, pitta triangles or fresh vegetables. Add more of the reserved chickpea liquid for a smoother dip.
