Tom Kerridge’s clever five-ingredient meals

As a chef, it’s my job to build layers of flavour in dishes, but it’s equally important to show restraint and let ingredient­s sing for themselves. Because these recipes are made with just five ingredient­s (plus salt, pepper and sunflower or vegetable oil), they really prove that. I’ve also included some extra ideas if you happen to have a few more ingredient­s to hand. You could also serve an easy side dish or accompanim­ent with these, but I’m really happy with them as they are. These recipes bring out the best of humble ingredient­s like carrots and apples, while not masking the quality of British smoked fish, duck and beef.

This recipe is a lesson in less is more. When I was developing this, I wanted to add extra ingredient­s, but when it was all done, everything I wanted was there and I couldn’t stop eating it.
