Easter weekend recipes for two

From quick and satisfying fish recipes for Good Friday to a delicious lamb recipe that puts a spin on the traditional family roast, these Easter recipe ideas are perfect for two people.

This Easter, it is unlikely that many of us will have big family gatherings due to the current social distancing measures, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some special meals at home.

It may not be possible for you to get all of the ingredients for all of the dishes but hopefully, you will be able to substitute some ingredients if needed.

Here are a few suggestions that you may want to mix and match!

For Good Friday: Sweet gem and cod braised with peas

This delicious and simple recipe is perfect for Good Friday. It’s healthy, tasty and can be on the table in less than 30 minutes and this would work with salmon as well.

For Good Friday: Smoked haddock and watercress fishcakes

Smoked haddock and watercress fishcakes

These fishcakes with zingy lemon, buttery smoked haddock and peppery watercress are a Silversurfers favourite and perfect for a light bite or main course. You can do most of the prep ahead – simply fry or reheat when it comes time to serve.

For brunch: Warm asparagus salad with poached egg and parmesan

This delicious warm asparagus salad is perfect as a hearty breakfast, brunch or lunch recipe and works for vegetarians, too.

For Easter Sunday: Lamb Chop Traybake

This delicious lamb chop traybake recipe is the perfect alternative to an Easter Sunday roast especially if your usual family gathering is not able to happen this year.

It has just 5 ingredients, and with a quick and simple preparation time, you can enjoy plenty of flavour without the fuss.  If you can’t get lamb, then chicken would be an alternative to substitute.

Strawberry and blackberry crumble

Strawberry and blackberry crumble

This elegant strawberry and blackberry crumble recipe looks beautiful served in individual glass dishes. The key is cooking the crumble and the compote separately and then bringing them together at the end. The rosewater and elderflower bring out the fragrance of the strawberries, making this a simple yet sophisticated dessert. If you can’t get fresh berries then frozen berries can be substituted.

For dessert: Chocolate dipped strawberries

Chocolate dipped strawberries

Instead of hunting for chocolate eggs, try this grown-up treat for Easter. Healthier than a bar of chocolate and easy to prepare ahead, it’s the perfect decadent treat for adults to enjoy after your lunch.
