30ml (2tbsp) oil
1tsp smoked paprika
4 pork shoulder steaks
225g (7 1/2oz) runner beans, sliced
6 small oranges, peeled and sliced
1 cucumber, halved lengthways and sliced
1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
4tsp poppy seeds
100g (3 1/2oz) feta, crumbled
handful fresh coriander, chopped
White poppy seeds are not widely available, but you will find them in Indian grocers.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to prevent them from becoming rancid.
Because they’re so small and have a tendency to stick together, poppy seeds are often dry-roasted, or soaked and ground before use to make them easier to handle. In Central and Eastern Europe, they are sprinkled onto cakes, breads, biscuits and bagels, and added to potato, egg, pasta, cream and cheese dishes. In India, they are used as a spice or as a thickener in curries."
All the best Jan
