"This is an almost instant meal! Fennel seeds and Aleppo pepper (also known as pul biber or Turkish red pepper flakes) spice the salmon which needs a mere 10 minutes, if that, in a hot oven," says Nigella.

Nigella Lawson's Salt and Vinegar Potatoes

"This is a bit of a riff on my favorite flavor of potato chip. Sweet baby potatoes are steamed, and then squished lightly with a fork before being roasted in a little olive oil in a hot oven. The rough edges get bronzed and crisped and the minute these babies are out of the oven, I douse them in good quality apple cider vinegar and sea salt flakes."

Nigella Lawson's Emergency Brownies

"When your chocolate need is urgent, this is the perfect small-batch brownie recipe just for you. I always have a stash of takeout aluminum foil pans, which are just the right size for these."
