How about a romantic and delicious Valentine's recipe featuring salmon? Here's a simple yet elegant dish:

Salmon with Lemon-Dill Butter Sauce


  • 2 salmon fillets

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

2 cloves garlic

Juice of 1 lemon

Zest of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill


  1. Prepare the Salmon:
  • Preheat your oven to 190°C.
  • Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides.
  1. Cook the Salmon:
  • Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the salmon fillets skin side down. Sear for about 3-4 minutes until the skin is crispy and golden.
  • Flip the fillets and transfer the skillet to the preheated oven. Bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  1. Make the Lemon-Dill Butter Sauce:
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Stir in lemon juice and zest, and chopped dill. Cook for another minute.
  • Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
  1. Serve:
  • Once the salmon is cooked, remove it from the oven and place it on serving plates.
  • Drizzle the lemon-dill butter sauce over the salmon fillets.
  • Garnish with additional fresh dill or lemon slices if desired.
  • Serve immediately, perhaps with a side of roasted vegetables or a salad for a complete Valentine's Day meal.

This dish not only looks impressive but also tastes amazing with the combination of tender salmon and the bright flavours of lemon and dill. Enjoy your romantic Valentine's dinner!

Lobster lovers, we hear you!

How about preparing a luxurious and indulgent dish like Lobster Tail with Garlic Herb Butter for your Valentine's Day dinner? Here's a recipe:


  • 2 lobster tails
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 55g unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Optional: additional melted butter for dipping (try our prepared butters!)


  1. Prepare the Lobster Tails:
  • Thaw the lobster tails if they're frozen. Rinse them under cold water and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Using kitchen shears, carefully cut along the top shell lengthwise, stopping at the tail. Gently pry the shell open, but keep it attached at the tail.
  1. Season and Arrange:
  • Season the lobster meat with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Preheat your grill to high.
  1. Make the Garlic Herb Butter:
  • In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, chives, thyme, and lemon juice.
  1. Baste and Grill:
  • Place the lobster tails onto a baking sheet or a grill pan, shell side down.
  • Brush the lobster meat generously with the garlic herb butter mixture.
  • Grill the lobster tails for about 8-10 minutes, or until the meat is opaque and slightly browned, and the shells are bright red.
  1. Serve:
  • Transfer the cooked lobster tails to serving plates.
  • Serve with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the lobster meat.
  • Optionally, serve with additional melted butter for dipping.

This decadent lobster tail dish is sure to impress your Valentine and create a memorable dining experience. Pair it with your favourite sides like roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a crisp salad for a complete meal.
