This is a great dish for any firm fish, such as halibut or seabass. It's essentially a summer dish since it's best to use very flavourful, ripe tomatoes.

I made this recipe last night using Marlin and it was fantastic! I made a couple changes: When marinading, I left the rosemary sprig whole so it infused into the oil. I was afraid it would taste too strongly of rosemary if it was chopped in both the relish and on the fish. I did not have cherry tomatoes, so I diced regular tomatoes. I also grilled it on a wood plank for about 10 minutes, then directly on the grill for a few minutes on each side. The relish was a great compliment to the fish! Thanks for the great recipe- I can't wait to make it again!-22 Jan 2008

This four star rating is more for the relish, which was particularly good. The fish, however, not so good. Hubs, the grill master, believes it was the marinading that took away from how good this COULD have been. Once put on the grill, the olive oil just flowed out of the meat, preventing it from browning nicely. He said the filets should be dry, then rubbed lightly with olive oil just before grilling on a hot grill, which would then also require less than the directed time - and they also need a good squeeze of lemon. The relish, on the other hand, was just delicious. Great fresh flavor and colors, but I think it could be put to better use with something other than this fish. I served this with a seasoned couscous, which we've finally concluded we don't like. I should have made the rice pilaf I had originally planned on.-14 Nov 2009

This was great. Although I did not have fresh rosemary, (I used dried) it still was great. The corn and tomato relish could and WILL be used with other dishes and also just as a side dish. One of the great things about living here in South Dakota at this time of year is the most wonderful tasting sweet corn fresh off the farm. Using sweet corn really gave this relish a nice taste. I did not alter the recipe and I don't feel like I would need to add or take anything's great! 9/17/08 I made the relish as a side dish tonight and it was sure to use sweet corn and not field or frozen corn (or add a touch of sugar to the mix)!-03 Aug 2008

Tinned tomatoes recipes

Have a tin of chopped tomatoes handy and looking for inspiration? Check out our ideas for how to use this store cupboard essential (here is our best tinned tomatoes taste test) in batch cooking, midweek meals and restaurant-w0rthy dinners. We also have ideas for using tins of chickpeas here, plus plenty more pasta bakes to try here.


Spinach, chickpea and potato curry

Use chopped tomatoes, chickpeas and store cupboard spices in this lightly-spiced vegan curry for a wholesome midweek meal for four.

Best ever chilli con carne

When you’ve got a bit of time on your hands and want to use up store cupboard ingredients, this chilli is a winner. Tins are your best friend in this recipe: tinned tomatoes, kidney beans (though black beans, turtle beans and pinto beans all work brilliantly too) and you can even add sweetcorn if you like!

The secret to the best chilli is building layers and layers of flavour and long-slow cooking to let all of those flavours meld and develop. For that reason, it’s a perfect dish to cook in a slow cooker. Try our slow-cooker chilli here.

Quick quinoa and black bean vegan chilli

This quinoa and black bean chilli recipe is high in protein, low calorie and vegan – but still tastes impossibly creamy. Use tins of chopped tomatoes and black beans with quinoa and store cupboard spices to assemble this easy meal.

Baked meatballs

Super easy to make, easily freezable for family meals, and ready in a dash. Make two at the weekend and thank yourself midweek.

Baked cod with tomato and chorizo sauce

Ready in 20 minutes, this is a great meal to whip up using very few ingredients. It’s pretty healthy too, at only 252 cals per serving. The combination of tinned tomatoes, chilli flakes and chorizo creates a sweet, spicy, smoky trio of flavours. Use whatever white fish you can get that’s fresh, sustainable, and in season.

Creamy tomato and basil rigatoni bake

Check out our veggie pasta bake with juicy chopped tomatoes, nutty parmesan and creamy mozzarella. This super simple one-pot recipe is ready in less than an hour, an easy mid-week filler for all the family. Try more pasta bake recipes here.

Healthy chicken curry

This healthier chicken curry recipe bulks up on veg and uses chopped tomatoes to keep the calories low. Freeze in portions for quick, midweek meals.

Aubergine parmigiana

This is a crowd pleaser that’s great for veggies and meat eaters alike. Melty cheese, soft aubergine and tomato sauce are layered for Italian comfort food.

Make individual dishes for more of a restaurant feel. Serve with a crisp green salad and garlic bread on the side.

Puttanesca pasta

Spaghetti puttanesca, or ‘tart’s pasta’, needs no introduction. Salty, tangy and subtly sweet, this recipe uses fresh or tinned cherry tomatoes, chopped anchovies and pitted black olives.

Puy lentil bolognese

Meat takes a back seat in this bolognese as we swap beef mince with hearty store cupboard lentils and chopped chestnut mushrooms. Tagliatelle or linguine is best with this recipe, so the rich tomato sauce sticks to the pasta.

Cauliflower rice with aubergine ragoût

By blitzing cauliflower in a food processor, and quickly cooking, you get the consistency and texture of rice but without the carbs and with fewer calories. It still fills you up, and it’s quicker to cook, too.

Chilli chicken stew

This is one for the whole family, and you can add loads of veg for a healthy one-pot without worrying about the washing up. Tinned tomatoes make a perfect base for a chilli-spiked stew, served with buttered couscous or a herby quinoa.

Tomato Relish

Is this relish or chutney? Whatever you’re having yourself! I love relish but it is expensive to buy a really good one so I thought it can’t be that hard to make my own. I spent quite a long time researching this one to make sure that I got the flavour I was looking for. I had all the ingredients already in my kitchen so that was a good start.. Most of the recipes I came across online had apples in them but none of the jars of relish in the shops that I like had them listed in the ingredients, so I left them out. I’m glad I did, this is a really rich, intense flavoured relish.

The last batch I made lasted us four or five months. It makes approx. a litre of relish. You can use it immediately but it does taste better if left to mature a bit. I store it in a cold dry place but once opened keep it in the fridge.


  • 115ml red wine vinegar
  • 115ml white wine vinegar
  • 300g sugar
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 200g onions finely chopped
  • 700g tinned plum tomatoes
  • 300g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 100g sultanas
  • 1tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Use a large heavy bottomed saucepan as you will be cooking this slowly for a long time and a proper saucepan will help prevent burning. I use a cast iron casserole dish. Put the vinegars, sugar and mustard seeds into the saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring the whole time.
  • Once the sugar has dissolved, add in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil again.
  • Then reduce to a simmer and leave to simmer for 90mins to 2 hours. Make sure to stir occasionally to prevent the relish sticking.
  • Reduce until it has thickened significantly. You can use the relish as it is which will be quite chunky. I like to take a potato masher to it to blend it a bit so that it is a bit thicker, less lumpy.

The relish when it starts to boil, after 2 hours simmering, and after blending with the masher.

Griddled radicchio and strawberry risotto

Italians love their seasonal produce so much so that they often have festivals to celebrate it. It was during festa di fragole (the strawberry festival) that I first tasted a risotto like this one. You are probably thinking that it sounds a little strange, but I promise you the bitterness of the radicchio really does work with the sweetness of the strawberries. It is best served with some reduced balsamic vinegar (see note below). I guess radicchio is like Marmite, you either love it or hate it! I think radicchio is a thing of beauty. I love its colour and the way it’s white veined leaves entwine. Griddling radicchio mellows its bitter peppery flavour. Serves 4.

For the radicchio 1 head radicchio, approximately 350g olive oil, for drizzling sea salt balsamic vinegar (approximately 2 tablespoons)

For the risotto
2 tablespoons olive oil
50g butter
4 shallots, finely diced
375g risotto rice (such as Arborio or Carnaroli)
300ml white wine
900ml hot vegetable stock
juice of half a lemon
4 tablespoons mascarpone
sea salt and pepper
50g Parmesan cheese, grated
8 strawberries, quartered
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives (optional)

Preheat a griddle pan over a medium heat. Cut the radicchio into quarters lengthways, keeping some of the stem attached to each quarter (trim off any dark parts of the stem). Open the leaves a little, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Place the oiled radicchio on the hot griddle and cook for 2–3 minutes on either side. When it begins to brown, remove to a plate and drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar. Leave to cool before shredding into thin strips.

To make the risotto, heat the olive oil and butter in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat, add the shallots and cook till translucent.

Add the rice and fry for 1 minute, stirring to prevent it from sticking. Reduce the heat a little and add the wine. Allow the wine to be absorbed before adding a ladle of hot stock (that’s approximately 200ml, depending on the size of your ladle). Stir and allow the rice to absorb the stock before adding the next 200ml. Continue to add stock in this way, stirring frequently, until it has all been absorbed and the rice is ‘al dente’ (with just a bite to it). This will take about 20 minutes. Stir through the lemon juice, radicchio, mascarpone and salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat, stir in the Parmesan and half the strawberries.

Serve, garnished with the remaining strawberries, chives, a drizzle of olive oil and reduced balsamic vinegar (below) or an aged balsamic (which is optional).

Note: Pour a bottle of balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan and warm over a low heat (don’t use an expensive balsamic for this). Continue to heat until the balsamic has reduced and coats the back of a spoon. Turn off the heat and pour into a container. Leave to cool before covering there is no need to refrigerate. If it thickens too much, gently warm in a microwave or in a bowl of boiling water for 5 seconds. This is great served over risotto, salads and fresh figs with honey. Cabernet Sauvignon vinegar is also delicious reduced.

White Fish with Sweetcorn and Tomato Relish recipe - Recipes

At Chinese restaurants, grouper is most typically used to make this dish. But the recipe is quite versatile so you can use whatever white fish you can get your hands on. For me, personally, I always opt for cod. Other common white fish options for this recipe include Haddock and Pollock.

Canned Cream Style Corn and How to Make Corn Sauce from Scratch

I was utterly surprised that canned cream-style corn isn’t readily on the supermarket shelves in the UK! Back home, they just sit right next to canned sweet corn and can be found at every supermarket. I managed to find them at a Waitrose nearby my flat. But I did a quick google search as well and apparently, both Tesco and Sainsbury’s should sell them too. Popular UK brands like Green Giant (the brand you typically see for canned sweet corn) do sell cream-style corn but maybe they only sell it at selected supermarkets?

Anyway, for the longest time, I stopped making this dish due to to the lack of cream-style corn at supermarkets. But then I finally found a way to make it from scratch instead. It’s really not that complicated either.

You can follow my recipe for my Cantonese Cream Corn Egg Drop Soup to create the sauce. What I normally do is follow the soup recipe then save half of it as the cream corn sauce of this dish, the other half to serve as soup.

Smoked Haddock, Sweetcorn & Chilli Fishcakes with Spicy Tomato Sauce


For the Fishcakes

  • 400g potatoes, peeled and cut into evenly sized chunks
  • 250g undyed smoked haddock, skinned
  • 100g tinned sweetcorn, drained
  • 2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 50g polenta
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, plus a little extra for greasing

For the tomato sauce

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the potatoes in a saucepan with just enough cold water to cover. Put on the lid, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Place the haddock in a steamer or colander and cook on top of the potatoes for 4 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked and the potatoes are tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes, place back on a low heat for 1 minute to dry out, remove from the heat and mash until smooth. Add the haddock, sweetcorn, chilli flakes, parsley and season well. Mix together gently so that the fish stays in large flakes. Leave to cool.
  3. Spread the polenta onto a plate. Divide the potato mixture into quarters, and shape each into an 8cm cake. Coat in the polenta and place on an oven tray lined with baking parchment.
  4. Lightly grease a cooking ring with vegetable oil. Place it over a fishcake and press to make a perfect fishcake. Repeat with the remaining cakes. Chill for 15 minutes.
  5. To make the tomato sauce, gently heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the shallots and garlic for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the remaining sauce ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste.
  6. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Fry the fishcakes for 5-6 minutes, or until piping hot and golden brown on both sides. Serve with the spicy tomato sauce.

Tip: Try using salmon, tinned tuna or crab to replace the haddock, and add chopped spring onions or chives instead of parsley.
