Roast hake with black lentils, squash and chilli sauce

This chilli sauce is based on the Levantine condiment shatta. It makes more than you’ll need, so pop the rest in a clean jar to keep in the refrigerator and enjoy over the next few weeks. It makes a seriously lush cheese on toast.

Anchovy, broccoli, chilli and garlic pasta

This is a super-rich dish, where the umami quality of the anchovies really is the star. You can use cauliflower in place of broccoli.

Monkfish tagine

This stew is an unctuous embodiment of autumn, with warm spices and beautiful tones of gold and green. The firm and meaty fish holds its shape in a slow stew and works wonderfully with the sweet and sour flavours. Try toasting some blanched almonds, then chopping to scatter over the top as a finishing touch. If you don’t have an apple or prunes, you can try using a pear or raisins instead.

Seven-spice sardines & cauliflower with garlic yogurt

On the banks of the Golden Horn in Istanbul, little stalls fill the air with the glorious smell of grilling fish. The fish is served up in bread rolls with lettuce, slim slices of onion and a good squeeze of lemon juice. This is my version.
