Hi and welcome to Pescetarian Kitchen. My name is Laura and this is where I share the very best recipes that I’ve made, photographed and (my favourite part) eaten!
That dashing young man in the picture above is my wonderful husband, Matthew. He’s the tech genius behind Pescetarian Kitchen and he’s also pretty handy in the kitchen. I know, I’m a very lucky lady.
We started Pescetarian Kitchen back in 2014, when I was working full time as a high school English teacher in Birmingham, England. Matt and I wanted a project that we could work on together that combined our love of cooking, my love of writing and his super-human internet abilities. We also wanted to create a place where people could come to find delicious pescetarian recipes, from shellfish to veggie, fish to vegan. And as a result, Pescetarian Kitchen was born.
We now live in Boston, USA and I live, love and write for Pescetarian Kitchen full time. I’m very lucky to say that I get to spend my days cooking up new, tasty treats in the kitchen and sharing them with all of you beautiful people!
Whether you’re a life-long pescetarian, new to the lifestyle, or just in the mood for some tasty seafood dinners, this blog will provide you with everything you need, from quick and easy fish dishes through to high protein meat-free alternatives. And hey, if there’s something you don’t see that you’d like to, I love hearing from you guys so please drop me an email 🙂
Pescetarian Kitchen aims to tackle the challenges that pescetarians and vegetarians face every day: Breaking the monotony of boring lunchtimes, keeping a balanced and healthy diet without meat and keeping cooking fresh and exciting, without spending a fortune.
One of my favourite things about cooking with fish and seafood is how varied and versatile it is. There are so many different flavours and textures out there in the oceans and I love to try new things. I particularly enjoy cooking with shellfish and molluscs – fry octopus is a favourite of mine, as well as stuffed clams.
When it comes to eating fish, I adore salmon – my teriyaki glazed salmon is a regular on the menu in our home. I also like to explore with less common fish and really enjoy exploring my local fishmongers, hunting for something different.
I also have a serious sweet tooth – I love desserts like panna cotta and fruit tarts – plum frangipane is one of my absolute favourites. If I had my way dessert would follow every meal, though thankfully, Matt has enough self control for us both so I stick to make a couple each week!
Aside from cooking (and eating) I love to read, walk and practice yoga, which keeps me calm and collected when I have a million things to do.
