How to serve a Gluten Free Christmas Dinner
If you have a Gluten Free guest or if you have coeliac disease yourself, we have great recipes for both a Gluten Free Starter and Main to enjoy over the Christmas period.
A classic that’s never far from the Christmas menu. Use the Andrew James Compact Mini Chopper to slice the cucumber and lettuce that accompanies the prawns and delicious sauce.
300g cooked prawns
1 shredded iceberg lettuce
Slice half of the lettuce and place in the base of your serving glasses.
In a mixing bowl, mix the remaining lettuce with the cooked prawns, mayonnaise, tomato ketchup and the lemon juice.
Slice the cucumber and place on top of the lettuce in your serving glasses, before spooning in the prawn mixture and serve.
In keeping with the seafood theme, you can make the dough for this brilliant main by using a Stand Food Mixer – we’ve cheated and bought Gluten Free Puff Pastry – and placing salmon, tomatoes and pesto inside, sandwiching it all together between two pieces of crumbling pastry.
3 sheets of Gluten Free Puff Pastry
Gluten Free Flour
4 salmon fillets
10-15 cherry tomatoes
2 egg yolks
Salt and Pepper
Pre-heat your oven to 190°C and make sure your puff pastry is at room temperature before folding it in half once and then, again.
Roll into a large rectangle before cutting it into 4 smaller rectangles and placing them in a baking tray.
Take the second sheet of Gluten Free puff pastry and repeat the process, folding it in half once and then, again. Once more, roll into a large rectangle and cut into 4 smaller rectangles.
With these 4 rectangles, cut a smaller rectangle, making a border. Place the borders onto the rectangles from the first sheet of puff pastry.
Place one piece of salmon into each rectangle before layering with pesto and lemon juice.
Chop your cherry tomatoes and place on top of salmon, as well as butter, salt and pepper.
Take a third sheet of Gluten Free Puff Pastry and place on top of salmon. Alternatively, use any pastry sheets remaining from earlier on in the process.
Place in oven and cook for 30-35 minutes.
Pull out and enjoy!
