Cajun salmon tacos
People can be intimidated by cooking fish for tacos, but don't be! After marinating, the fish just needs to cook in a glug of olive oil for a few minutes per side in a skillet. Let the fish rest a few minutes before using a fork to flake it into pieces. If you don't have cajun spice, you can make your own! Just stir together some salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and dried oregano before rubbing it on the salmon. Get the recipe here.
Slow-cooker chicken curry
Over the years, the slow cooker has become a kitchen staple—and for good reason. By doing a little prep early, you get to return to a perfectly cooked ready-to-eat meal, which is perfect for those busy weeknights. This is an easy curry that you can adjust to your tastes. It is worth frying the onions and spices off at the beginning to give the curry a depth of flavour. Get the recipe here.
Traditional shepherd's pie
While the weather has been nothing short of glorious the past few days, we know it's not set to last. Soon as grey skies and rain-filled clouds return, you'll be in dire need of some comfort food. Look no further than this traditional shepherd's pie. While the shepherd's pies of today are made using beef, the dish was traditionally made with a ground-lamb filling - hence how it got its name.
