  1. Love your recipes and presentation. Are the calories mentioned in each recipe for the whole recipe or per serving?

  2. Hi Mary,

    Thanks for your comment. Yes indeed the quoted calories is per person and the dish will always say how many servings it makes. In the case of the Monkfish & chorizo, they are one and the same as it is a dish for one person. It’s really delicious and well worth a try.

  3. Georgia dish and so easy to make!! I substituted the vermouth for a dab of milk at the end and it was delicious!

  4. Good idea! I would never have thought of milk in that dish. Am very pleased it worked for you. I may have to try it using milk instead!

  5. Hi Mary, Just got your new book complete 2-day fasting diet. Wow its great. Very excited seeing lots of different recipes to try. I have been on the 5:2 diet since October and have lost 2 and a half stone and my husband has lost 1 and a quarter stone! Delighted with it but was getting a bit fed up using the same old recipes. There are loads of great things I cant wait to try. Thank you.

  6. That’s great! You’ve done an amazing job on the diet. I’m sure there’ll be loads of things to inspire you for your fasting days in the new book. Keep up the good work.

  7. I would love to try this recipe. Is there any other fish or anything else I can use in place of the monkfish?

  8. Yes I’m sure there is. You need a firm meaty fish that doesn’t break up when cooking. Could you try huss/rock salmon?
