    Thai shrimp and Basque mackerel
Small sausage rolls

We love the sausages from the English butcher on our market. Cumberland, Lincolnshire. These aremade from his chili and ginger sausages, as thick as a finger. We remove the skin. Cut them in 5 cm pieces and roll them in puff pastry. Cover them with a whisked egg and put them in a 200C oven for about 20 mins. Can be frozen. Yummie.

Fried potatoes, mushrooms, cheese, salsa
