Mushy peas are a fish-shop classic, even better when you make your own at home. Spiked with mint, then layered in the bap with crispy golden fish and tangy tartare sauce – we think it’s the peas that make these sarnies so good! 

Mashed peas add instant colour to your plate, and are a fun alternative to classic spud mash. Simply served with roasted cod and crispy pancetta – this dish is an easy family meal, but smart enough for a special dinner.

The natural sweetness of peas is a brilliant partner to earthy black pudding and fresh, delicate scallops. Combine with crispy fried mint leaves and you’re laughing!

Peas make a brilliant base for big flavours, such as chargrilled meat, chilli, herbs and salty pecorino cheese. Brought together with fresh zesty lemon, this dish is a joy!
