Salad Sunday

Recipe: Salmon and feta salad with tahini dressing

Kickstart the week as you mean to go on; with a healthy and nutritious meal that’s far from boring. This stunning salmon and feta salad is perfect for a weeknight dinner, and is packed with those all important omega-3 fatty acids – proven to contribute a number of health benefits to any diet. Add additional veggies if you fancy – it works great with avocados, peppers and cucumbers, too! For more salad ideas, click here.

Meat-free Monday

Recipe: Tofu pad Thai with peanuts

Make a plant-based recipe the star of the show every Monday, like this vegan twist on the Asian classic, pad Thai. Here, we use tofu instead of eggs and get plenty of heat from fresh red chillies and a dash of sriracha sauce. Trust us, it’ll soon be a firm favourite in your weekly meal plan, and it’s coming up on our menu very soon!

20-minute Tuesday

Recipe: Italian chicken and rocket salad with balsamic dressing

Not every great meal involves standing over a hot stove for hours on end. Be clever with flavours and you’ll soon whip up a tasty dish in no time at all. This Italian chicken salad packs classic Mediterranean influences into one simple dish. Why not double the recipe and keep leftovers for lunch, too? For more speedy supper ideas, click here.

Healthy Wednesday

Recipe: Spanish tuna steaks with tomato salsa and bean mash

Kick-off the weekend countdown with an ultra-fresh and filling recipe. We love this Spanish tuna dish, incorporating Andalusian influences with a punchy salsa. We swap potatoes for white beans in our low-cal mash alternative, and it’s the perfect side dish to the beautifully seared tuna steaks, served pink – just how we like them.

Fakeaway Thursday

Recipe: Posh fish & chips with tartar sauce and peas

It’s the weekend, so why not treat yourself to a true British favourite when it comes to takeaways – the classic fish & chips. In our version, you won’t create a batter for the fish – instead, you’ll coat it in a parmesan crumb, giving it a luxurious edge that you’re unlikely to find in your local chippy on the British coast. Serve with golden, hand-cut chips and a generous dollop of tartar sauce for the ultimate Thursday treat.

Family favourite Friday

Recipe: Parmesan chicken nuggets with potato cubes and slaw

Fridays in the UAE are to be spent with loved ones, so be sure to indulge in a family favourite recipe that you’ll all enjoy. This all-time classic Hello Chef recipe is the perfect choice – crispy, golden nuggets of chicken, served with mini roasted potatoes and a side of creamy slaw. We guarantee it’ll be a hit with everyone at the table!

Steak Saturday

Recipe: Garlic butter rib-eye steak with twice-baked potatoes and broccolini

Enjoy an indulgent steakhouse classic in the comfort of your own home with this garlicky rib-eye. What could be better than twice-baked potatoes on the side, you may wonder? Try loaded twice-baked potatoes! These creamy, cheesy goodies are a match made in heaven alongside the tender, garlicky steak. Go on, treat yourself…
