  • Jamie Oliver does amazing fish parcels, chicken ones too


  • I think I would use lemon juice and zest as it is a little less acidy.
    I’m not a lover of the flavour of lime either


  • Lemongrass and fish go so well together – divine flavour.

    • A dinner party or date night dish because the presentation on the plate looks so pretty.


  • Love red chillies and fresh herbs


  • Look’s so good and so healthy with loads of flavour! Thanks.
