Can you please let me know your favourite recipes from Naked Chef and Return of the Naked Chef?

I have had both books for years and never really used them. All looks "nice" but nothing jumps out.

What should I definitely try? Thanks.

Fantastic fish pie, normal standard ingredients, nothing fancy & absolutely delicious

Cooked loads from them when we got them many moons ago, they are how DH learnt to roast a chicken.

There's a lamb shank dish - slow cooked with tomato, carrot celery etc which is lovely.
His Thai chicken curry is good.
The Simple Chocolate tart is my default entertaining pud. Chocolate pots with Orange Polenta biscuits were lovely too.

There's a leek and butterbean gratin which we used to have lots, then I stopped using the recipe and made some rubbish ones, might revisit it!

Seabass with mushrooms, potatoes and salsa verde. Cook it loads and love it.

He has a v good recipe for a curry base, which can be adapted. Think it is in Happy Days.

Thanks all - will work through a few of those. Love the sound of the leek and butterbean gratin, mmm.

We've made his green Thai curry from the first book at least once a month for the last ten years. Delicious!
