Recipes for yachting

Boaty recipes

If you’re spending a night at anchor, tied to a mooring buoy, or if you simply can’t be bothered to change out of your wet weather gear and get rid of the windswept sailor look, here are some of the many delicious, galley-friendly recipes to try.  As we trial recipes ( we know its hard!) we will share our favourite ones that are designed with minimal washing up and easy-to-prepare ingredients in mind.


Jo’s Halloumi and butter bean dish

My friend, Jo, has cooked this dish pretty much every time we’ve gone sailing … Turkey, Antigua and not forgetting Yarmouth on New Year’s Eve.


Moroccan Lamb

Emma has made this dish a lot for us on a lot of our trips and and its always a hit!

This is such an easy dish to make and involves very little preparation but still has great flavour. The Ras El Hanout seasoning is a North African mix of fragrant spices including cumin, coriander, cinnamon, turmeric, paprika and ginger. It is used in a wide range of dishes including tagines, rice dishes, soups and as a marinade. If you would prefer a vegetarian version you could substitute chickpeas for the mince. Enjoy!

Baked Spiced Salmon with Green Beans 

This is a really healthy easy fish dish with a spicy Middle Eastern twist and one of Alex.’s favourites to make on board!   Complimented with a herby mash it’s bursting with colour and really packs a punch.


Chicken Kiev with Mustard Parsnip Mash

A lighter, gluten-free version of the family favourite, using crunchy ground almonds to coat chicken Kievs and stuff them with an indulgent blend of garlic, olive oil and parsley.


 Offshore Banana Pancakes

If you need a morale-boosting breakfast for your crew, look no further. This banana-based pancake recipe is easy to whip up, filling, and a tasty warm treat! Perfect for when sailing offshore!
