Mediterranean recipes remind us of holidays past and flavours that evoke summer. Try our grilled fish, roast lamb or salad recipes for a true taste of the Mediterranean!
Mediterranean recipes transport you to warmer climes and pleasant memories of holidays past. We have plenty of lamb recipes, fish, pasta and wonderful, colourful salads with plenty of feta cheese!
Mediterranean cuisine is a rich mix of influences from Spain, France, Morocco, Turkey, Greece and their neighbouring countries and as a result, these recipes are full of exciting flavour combinations. Key ingredients you’ll come across time and time again are plenty of olive oil, fresh fish, shellfish, legumes and red wine.
Not only are Mediterranean recipes full of flavour, there are also a multitude of health benefits to following a Mediterranean diet. You’re less likely to develop high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or become obese. With that in mind, why not try out one of our Mediterranean recipes tonight!
You’ll have plenty to choose from if you decide to cook up a Mediterranean feast. Try this oven-roasted whole sea bass with fennel and chilli recipe (pictured) for a simple but sophisticated summer main. It can also be cooked on the barbecue, which is great because it adds an extra smoky dimension to the flavour of the fish.
Mediterranean recipes are great for outdoor entertaining, alfresco dining, a quick lunch or supper or if you’re watching your weight – they’re so versatile and usually very easy which means you won’t spend hours slaving away in the kitchen.
A Greek salad, for example, is a great choice if you’re looking for something really light for lunch, but also if you’re looking for an alternative salad recipe to accompany the meat at your barbecue.
Our lamb recipes make a really pleasant change from the usual Sunday roast and you can serve them with all the trimmings as you usually would, or alongside a really nice orzo salad.
