It seems I have much neglected my blog since starting it with such fanfare last year. Well, one can't really expect much from a seagull, we are notoriously unreliable - and besides - it's pretty tough typing with wings.
But as I have come to realise that it is far more difficult to nab pancakes from tourists than it is to grab their fish and chips, so I have had to come up with my own recipe for Shrove Tuesday.
Us Whitby lot love Easter and all that. What, with being the place where it all was formalised in 664AD at the Synod of Whitby
Anyhoo.. I digest (or is it digress?)...
I am so pleased with what I came up with I wanted to share it with the world (Seagulls are nothing if not modest ???)
So here it is, totally sublime, delicious and nutritious, loved by children and adults alike
Shrove Tuesday Lemon and Pepper
Flat Breads Pancakes
1 pack Whitby Seafoods Lemon Pepper Goujons
1 Large Avocado
1 Small Lemon
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1. Preheat the oven and cook goujons as directed
2. Cut avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the avocado, season with salt and pepper and mash with a fork
3. In another small bowl, combine the juice of the remaining half a lemon, lemon zest and mayonnaise and mix well.
4. To serve spread a layer of avocado on one half of each pancake, add goujons and top with a spoonful of mayonnaise,fold in half and DIG IN!
(Any left-over lemon juice to be used with a generous sprinkle of caster sugar on pancakes for a traditional Shrove Tuesday Pud)
