Nigella’s seafood bake with potatoes

Nigella’s new series, Kitchen, is on at BBC at the moment, and this recipe is from the first episode. First you roast some potatoes in the oven, then you scatter seafood on top, add some wine and put the dish back in the oven for another 15 minutes. This was utterly delicious with homemade aioli and nice crusty bread.

Nigella’s seafood bake with potatoes, serves 2

4-5 large potatoes

1 lemon

1/2 red onion

olive oil

4 squid tubes

some large raw prawns, unpeeled


50 ml white or rosé wine

persley, chopped

Don’t peel the potatoes, just cut them into 1,5 cm thick slices and cut each into four pieces. Put the potatoes in an ovenproof dish. Cut the lemon into pieces the same way as the potatoes and scatter over them. Cut the onions into pieces and scatter around the same dish. Pour over some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put in a 200 C oven for an hour. Meanwhile, soak the clams to remove grit. Throw away the opened ones. Take out the dish from the oven, cut the squid into rings and put them into the dish, next add the clams and prawns. Pour in the wine and add some more olive oil. Bake in the oven for another 15 minutes. Crank up the temperature to 220C if you like. When it is all done, scatter some parsley on top, maybe squirt some lemon juice and serve with aioli and nice bread.
