Wild Garlic Pesto, Mackerel and Prawns

Wild Garlic Pesto by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?I've been cooking with wild garlic all week using it like garlic or green onions. The wild garlic has a lighter and less sharp taste which I found really easy to cook with. So I have three recipes to share.
Wild Garlic Pesto by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?Wild Garlic Pesto
Makes about 1 cup
5 or 6 whole wild garlic (bulb and leaves) or 1 clove garlic and 6 green onions
1 cup of basil (leaves and stems)
1/4 cup of roasted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
2-3 Tbs olive oil
salt, pepper, hot pepper to taste

Blend everything slowing adding the olive oil until 95% smooth.

Wild Garlic Pesto by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?Enjoy raw on fresh bread, on pizza, in tomato soup or mixed with pasta. We did.

Mackerel by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?Wild Garlic BBQ Mackerel
for 4 small fish 2 med 1 large
4 fresh Mackerel
20 fresh wild garlic leaves
1/2 lemon cut into slices

Wash the mackerel and stuff each one with whole garlic leaves, lemon and salt. Wrap the extra garlic leaves around outside of the fish. BBQ for 10 min turning once or until the meat is white and flaky.
Prawns By Shawn @ Whats for Dinner?Shawn's Garlic Prawns
4 as a starter 2 as a main
1 pound of prawns (cleaned)
3 cloves of wild garlic or 1 normal
1 Tbs olive oil
salt and pepper

Mash the garlic into the oil. Add salt and pepper to taste (hot pepper anyone??). Fry or BBQ until pink.

Shawn really knows his prawns. These are so buttery (but with no butter).


  1. My mouth is watering. There is no fresh mackerel here, but I think I can get frozen mackerel. Is it easy to clean, and did you grill it with the heads/tails on?

  2. Mackerel is easy to clean, but I get the fish monger to do it for me. I grill or bake them with the heads and tails on. We would cook all fish that way.

  3. I love Pesto! So this makes me so excited!
