This week, there are two original recipes on my newsletter which will make Christmas that little bit easier, and taste that much better! My Pork & Pickle Stuffing Balls and my Baileys Biscuits. The stuffing recipe is a great alternative to the traditional sage and onion - filled with pork, apple and chunky pickle, it has a real tang to it and is very easy and cheap to make. My very grown-up Baileys Biscuits have a good whack of alcohol and a delicious chewy, oat bite to them - naughtily moreish!

Throughout December, the theme for my newsletters is, not surprisingly, 'Christmas'! I have 3 great recipes for you this month, from my Grand Marnier Soufflé to Baileys Biscuits. So sign up for free today to get your recipes each week, along with valuable cooking tips for the festive season.

Preheat your grill to high. Have a pan of salted boiling water on the hob along with another pan to cook the tomatoes.

Season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper then put them under the grill for 2.5 minutes. Once you've put the salmon under the grill, put the courgette spaghetti into the boiling water for 1 minute. Whilst the courgette is cooking, put the chopped tomatoes and chilli powder into the other pan on a medium heat.

After a minute, drain the courgette and leave it in the colander until you need it. Turn the salmon and grill for another 2.5 minutes.

Once the salmon is cooked, remove to a board and gently flake chunks of it into the pan of chopped tomatoes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Fold the salmon and tomatoes together, taking care not to completely break up the fish. Add in the chopped parsleyand carefully stir.

To serve, place some of the courgette spaghetti into your bowl or plate and spoon the salmon & tomatoes on top.

I hope that you enjoy it.
