Method

A lot of people don't realise that pea shoots are the best part of the pea plant to eat. They make a wonderful salad 'leaf'. If you can't get hold of them, then use a mixture of rocket and baby spinach leaves instead. Also, the point of this salad is that you use fresh, raw peas. If you can't get them, then make a different salad.

Add your peas and pea shoots to a bowl with the radicchio. Add the lemon juice and three times as much extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide the salad between your plates and crumble over the cheese. So simple, but so delicious!

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

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.
