This is the dinner I cook when I want to indulge myself and my family and friends. I often add lobster if it’s a special occasion or swap the tinned crab for fresh, and scallops make a great addition too.

Fish eggs (also known as roe) are generally associated with a fancy caviar canapé and are therefore very overlooked as a kitchen ingredient, which is a shame as they don’t need to cost the earth (especially salmon or carp roe), plus they’re full of micro-nutrients and omega-3 fatty acids and, most importantly, they’re very tasty. The best way to ensure quality is to buy fresh from your local fishmonger. Roe in a jar or a can is often full of preservatives so read the label carefully.
