As we creep ever closer to the middle of February many of those promises made to ourselves at one-past midnight on the first of January have somehow fallen victim to the quirks of everyday life.

Nothing but good.
2 x organic, free range chicken breasts
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Freshly ground black pepper

Inspired by one of my favourite summertime tipples, the minty, lime-spiked Mojito, The Seagull has everything you could ever want in a burger.
Fillets of Rockling mingle with lime juice and mint in a simple but punchy marinade before being gently pan-fried. Along with the Mojito-happy fish, the soft buttery brioche bun is layered with a hot coconut mayo, avocado, rocket, pickled onions and super sweet blood orange bits.
This is an absolute beauty of a burger and one to whip up at your next BBQ or weekend picnic.
2 x brioche burger buns, halved horizontally
1 x 200g firm white skinless fish fillet, divided into two portions – I used Rockling
1 cup rocket leaves, washed
½ avocado, sliced
1 blood orange, chopped into small pieces
½ red onion, finely sliced
Apple cider vinegar
Juice of 1 lime
½ cup mint leaves, finely sliced
