3 clementines with the leaves still on them

Zingy, juicy and full of flavour, these joyful seasonal parcels are a welcome sign that Christmas is on its way. At their sweetest and best right now, fill your boots and make the most of clementines while you can. While they make fantastic stocking fillers or the perfect pick-me-up snack, there are so many other delicious things you can do with them – here are a few of our favourites...


If you’re after a luxurious, light and dead-easy starter to kick-start your festive shenanigans, Chipotle-fried fish & clementine bites are a winner. Clementines and fish are great friends, and the fact that you can knock this together in just 40 minutes is a real bonus when you have guests to entertain and the rest of your Christmas dinner to be thinking about. This festive starter is also delicious made with oranges.



Get-ahead puds are money in the bank at this time of year, and these seasonal beauties will sit happily in the fridge for several days, ready and waiting to be topped at the last minute. Jazz up your jellies by adding a handful of pomegranate seeds for pretty pops of flavour.


Elevate your turkey leftovers to the next level with a warm clementine dressing – simple, seasonal and incredibly versatile, this dish makes a delicious side, or a main in its own right. Served up with a handful of toasted nuts and seeds, dollops of yoghurt and a scattering of pomegranate seeds, this is Christmassy perfection on a plate.


An indulgent croissant-cinnamon bun hybrid, spiced with the season’s most fragrant citrus. Make these the day before and bake in the oven for a lazy Christmas Eve morning. The dough takes a little planning, but you’ll be surprised how simple it really is.
