For a twist on a Saturday night takeaway without the noodles, why not try this delicious Potato Pad Thai recipe for a healthy treat night?
"This brightly coloured and intensely flavoured recipe is speedy enough for any night of the week. The sweet and sour relish sets off the salmon beautifully and I've roasted the King Edwards in their skins to give the whole thing wholesome comfort."
A slight twist on the traditional New England corn Chowder, the addition of smoked sausage brings a new depth of flavour to this winter-warming dish.
