Recipes from Fussels and the Lesley Waters Cookery School

food-fussels2LESLEY Waters Cookery School has created a selection of delicious recipes using the calorie controlled Fussels’ Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil, from sophisticated salmon to roasted salt and pepper pears.

Somerset farmer Andy Fussell developed a new bottle for his award-winning golden rapeseed oil with the Lesley Waters Cookery School, with a measured pump to allow cooks to watch how many calories of oil they are adding to their cooking.

With a subtle nutty taste that can easily be used in a variety of sweet and savoury dishes, and at just two calories per single spray and low levels of saturated fat, it is a useful addition to the cook’s pantry.

Lesley says: “Fussels’ Rapeseed Oil is fantastic for lots of reasons. It’s a very versatile oil in the kitchen;

I use it for everything from dressings to mayonnaise, for baking, light frying, roasting, batter puddings, stir frying… the list goes on. It’s so handy having it in a spray, especially if you’re counting calories; we use it in many of our cookery courses at the school.”

Arrange the smoked salmon slices on to 4 serving plates in a single layer. Mix together the capers, shallots, celery leaves or dill, rapeseed oil and season with freshly ground black pepper.  Just before serving, spoon the relish over the salmon.
