Making the most of mustard!

Sat 5th August 2017

Did you know that mustard is allegedly over 5000 years old, originating in India when it was first cultivated in 3000 BC? Following that it was brought to Britain by the Romans who used it as a condiment and a pickling spice!

We think it’s great with seafood and we’ve got some fab combinations that you could enjoy it with!


To start us off, here is one of my personal favourites – king prawn and lobster macaroni cheese. An amazing combination, seafood, pasta and a whole lot of cheese, not to forget the star – mustard! 

Ultimate fish finger sandwich

This fish finger sandwich recipe would be a crime to miss out on! Plus it only takes 20 minutes to make. Our tip is to try making your own tartare sauce by mixing some light mayonnaise with a little Dijon mustard, lemon juice, parsley, capers and gherkins to finish this dish off perfectly. Delish.


If you are looking for a starter to impress your dinner guests, you could rustle up this prawn cocktail with sunshine spice twist. Your guests will be curious to know how you will follow up such a colourful entree!


If a light bite is more your thing then try out mackerel salad on toast with mustard dressing. This recipe has some lovely strong flavours that make it a dish to savour. Enjoy!


A perfect dish to begin your weekend is this smoked haddock rarebit. It will fill the family up for whatever is in store for them!
