Posted in: Green, Recipes

Serves 4
1/2 cup Steaming water
4 teaspoons loose-leaf green tea leaves such as sencha
4 teaspoons honey
4 salmon fillets

Pour the steaming water over the tea leaves in a small bowl and add honey. Cover and steep for 2-3 minutes, strain and discard the leaves. Place the salmon in a pan. Brush with honey tea and pour any remaining tea around the fish. Cover the fish. Let the fish marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 2 days.

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/gas 4. Place the fish in the pan skin-side down and pan fry until golden. They will not be cooked, transfer the fish to a roasting pan and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes (until the fish is cooked completely).

It is amazing served with sautéed sweet potatoes and a spinach and mushroom medley.

As the name would suggest, theses biscuits are the perfect side to any cup of tea. Unlike scones however, tea biscuits are a lot less sweet because they don’t contain any sugar. Dunk them, butter them, or top with jam- enjoy!

You will need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine in the shortening until the mixture has a crumb-like texture.
  4. Stir in the milk with a fork, until a dough is formed. Knead the dough 8-10 times and roll out to a thickness of at least 1/2 an inch.
  5. Cut into rounds using a cookie cutter or a knife. Place onto greased cookie sheet and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
