4. Cook at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes until cooked through.

Pan Fried Salmon with Cream Cheese Pasta (Serves two.)
· 2 salmon fillets
· Bunch of asparagus or whatever speed food you like
· 1 chopped onion
· 1 tub of lightest Philadelphia (hex)
· 2 garlic cloves or garlic granules
· Chopped tomatoes
· Mixed herbs
1. Boil the pasta until cooked and set aside.
2. Season your salmon fillets with salt and pepper and heat a frying pan up. When the pan is hot, place the salmon skin side down and cook for 5 or so minutes until the skin is crispy. I then chuck it in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
3. Season asparagus with salt and pepper and cook for the same time as the salmon.
4. Chop an onion up and fry it off until soft. Then add the chopped tomatoes and herbs and let simmer for a few minutes. Then add the Philadelphia and cooked pasta and stir well.
5. Serve it all up. Such a simple and quick recipe but it’s an absolute favourite in my house.
Pulled Pork with Sweet Potato Mash
· You’ll need your slow cooker for this one…
· 1 pork shoulder fat removed and size dependant on the amount of people you’re cooking for
· 5 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
· 500g passata

· 2 tbsp of paprika
· 2 tbsp of sweetener

1. In a pan, mix together the passata, Worcestershire sauce and all of the herbs and let simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Remove all fat from the pork and place it in the slow cooker covering it with sauce made above.
3. Leave to cook for 6 hours on low. If it dries slightly just add some boiling water and stir well.
4. When it is cooked, it should just fall apart using 2 forks. I served mine with sweet potato mash and corn on the cob.
