Episode Description

Paella

This week Jamie rustles up a menu of dazzling dishes with incredible flavours that won’t cost the Earth. First off is a bit of thrifty sunshine on the plate with a frugal, but amazing paella.  Featuring succulent chicken thighs, spicy chorizo and prawns from the freezer, Jamie proves how a bit of smart shopping and clever cooking can deliver big flavour at a fraction of the cost.  Next Jamie’s got two brilliant street food-inspired ideas for leftover roast pork. Deliciously crispy Mexican tacos and French Vietnamese Banh Mi both make perfect mid-week suppers out of Sunday’s leftovers - and the Banh Mi comes complete with its own quick and easy recipe for homemade chicken liver pate. Then there’s a momma of a dish - with Jamie’s Sicilian-inspired meatballs and tomato ‘norma’ sauce.  This fabulous family feast looks and tastes way more impressive than its price tag, thanks to using ingredients mainly from the store cupboard including some cheap, but chic polenta. To top it all off comes Jamie’s fast and frugal posh beans on toast.  Made using broad beans and peas from the freezer, piled onto toasted garlic ciabatta with shavings of salty feta – it’s got all the taste of the Mediterranean and is on the table in minutes.
