Ray McVinnie's seasonal ideas for simple meals

by Ray McVinne | Cuisine issue #155 | Tuesday, 11 December, 2012
Boil small new potatoes until tender then drain. Blanch some asparagus or green beans then drain. Panfry large raw peeled prawns or monkfish, cubed, in a little butter with garlic and lemon zest until just cooked. Add the potatoes, crushed a little, the asparagus or beans and a couple of handfuls of rocket and mix well. Let everything become hot then taste, season and serve with lemon wedges.
