This is a really unusual but delicious way to eat cauliflower. The Japanese are brilliant at making lovely crispy batter for their tempura, so when I was over there I wanted to discover their secret. It turns out there are lots of different techniques, such as using cornflour instead of plain flour, or ice-cold sparkling water instead of tap water. In this recipe I'm going to use beer, though, as it gives such a nice colour and goes well with the spices. However, the best advice I was given is to fry the fritters in small batches and eat them straight away, so they're crunchy and hot. PS This batter recipe can be used for all sorts of things, like fish fillets or thin chicken strips or any finely cut vegetable. You can leave the spices out if you prefer it plain.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
