Main Dishes

My main dish recipes contain a mix of ingredients from meat, fish and vegetarian options. Some recipes contain lots of complex and delicious ingredients, others are simple and easy. From stews, pastas like butternut squash pasta , casseroles, curries, like South African bobotie to a delicate grilled fish, like fried trout or steamed mussels these are all my favourite main dish recipes.
