My OH isn’t this biggest fan of fish (not that you would know the amount I make him eat it!) but we have recently discovered that he has a particular liking for seabass (after the revelation that was my Minted Pea and Seabass Risotto). As a result I thought that, to keep him interested, I would come up with another seabass dish to take his fancy.
This quick dish is perfect for a weekend lunch or a light evening meal. It’s fuss free and uncomplicated but the flavours are truly satisfying. I’ve used mini soft taco’s in the recipe below as they are only 3sp and filling enough for me however if you feel you need a bigger wrap, go with a normal sized tortilla for only 1sp extra.
I love spiralized vegetables. What can be more satisfying than getting to eat a whole plate full of what feels like spaghetti for 0 smart points! Having wanted to have a play with my new OXO handheld spiralizer this week, I decided it was time for a new recipe and the result was amazing. Its both light and filling, cheesy and fresh. It’s the perfect lunch or light evening meal if you have had an over indulgent day. If you want to reduce the points further you can use 75g of feta instead of 100g. This will take the points down to 3 per person. Since the feta and tomatoes are the bulk of the flavour in the dish however, I would go with 100g!
I’m always keen to come up with new tasty starters which can be whipped up quickly as part of a three course meal. This one is exactly that. For only 4sp its bursting with flavour and is the perfect light start to any meal.
The squid rings that I’ve used here are from Ocean Classics. They come frozen in a huge bag and they are great, lovely and big and tasty!
To me, chicken and chorizo are a dream combination so I always love a new way to get them involved on the same plate. This week these two ingredients were pretty much all I left in the fridge so I thought, I know, I’ll stuff them all together.

I adore brunch. It has fast become my favourite meal of the weekend. Whether I make it in the house or we eat out, I love the variety of foods and flavours you get at this unique meal time. This weekend I visited one of my favourite brunch cafe’s and indulged myself in their self styled ‘bacon and eggs’. Granary toast, delicious bacon, poached egg, avocado, pesto dressing and hollandaise sauce, it was absolute heaven! However as nice as it was, I knew I couldn’t be indulging like this every weekend so I decided to make my own low propoint version of the dish.
Chicken breasts are always a great thing to keep in the freezer. They are so versatile, there are a million things to do with them but one of my favourites is to stuff them with whatever is in my fridge. This recipe is a great one as the ingredients are things I almost always have in. The flavours in the chicken are delicious and the light, creamy sauce really add a luxury feeling to the dish. I serve this with asparagus and 3sp of either mashed potato or oven roast potatoes for a total of 13pp.
I’ve had a hand held spiralizer in my kitchen drawer for a while now and it hasn’t come in too handy, mostly because the noodles it produces are rather thin and flimsy! After having a whirl on an amazing table top Hemsley and Hemsley Spiralizer at a recent Weight Watchers photoshoot I knew I had to have one (albeit mine looks the same but was £12 from The Range).
My other half loves chicken satay from the Chinese takeaway, but knowing how naughty it is, it’s not something we have very often. I’ve therefore wanted to make my own healthy version of satay chicken for a while now and this week I decided it was time to give it a go.
