Recipe tips

  • Notes: Pairs well with grilled octopus,halibut or sole. If pairing with shrimp (tail-on),marinate in olive oil and garlic before grilling
  • Tips: Investing in Maldon Sea Salt will serve this dish well as the flaky salt takes the tomatoes to the next level of flavour.
  • When large heirloom variety tomatoes become available in late August,substitute for listed tomatoes. To prepare an heirloom tomato: remove core with a very sharp paring knife. With a serrated knife,slice the tomatoes in 1 mm segments parallel to the core.
  • Grain Substitution: Pearl barley is a suitable grain alternative as is pasta like couscous or orzo.
