This recipe was inspired when Nisha poured her glass of gin and tonic onto her marinating salmon steaks and then baked them. The concoction which would later become Nisha’s gin and tonic salmon recipe. The gin adds a floral note while the tonic brings in a honey element to the sauce. For the best results, it’s common practice to always marinate the night before for any dish, for a more intense flavour.

Zhoug is a hot sauce that originates in Yemen. Dean’s first experience with Zhoug began with taking a leap of faith and trying out the punchy sauce when he was a guest judge in masterchef in 2019. The sauce was accompanied by a rack of lamb by a contestant called Amal Hassan. Dean was amazed by the flavour of the sauce and asked Amal for the recipe. Spiced lamb shoulder with punchy zhoug became Dean’s take on Amal’s fantastic dish. As well as the sauce, this dish is served with baby gem lettuce, a brilliant vegetable which balances out the strong flavour of the Zhoug.

This is a classic favourite among pudding and dessert lovers alike. Dean spills the bean here in this dish, the secret to a great toffee sauce is to add a little salt. It doesn’t make the sauce too overpowering, and the salt perfectly balances out the sweetness with a slight salty toffee taste. Besides the muscovado sugar, this doesn’t contain any caster sugar. This gives the pudding a really rich flavour. Medjool dates are also added, these have a naturally sweet flavour but also are known to have a more caramel like taste. Serve this with some clotted cream and you’re onto a winning dessert.
