The blue eye salad is like a Thai-style san choy bow - beautiful served with just rice. You can use prawns, chicken thigh fillet, minced lamb or beef instead of the fish.

Simple pistachio ice-cream

Simple pistachio ice-cream.

Leave the rose water out of the ice-cream mix if it isn't to your taste. You could also try mixing the nuts up by making it half pistachio and half ground almonds.
