How to use up leftover semolina

  • Semolina shortbread
    Replace half the flour in a classic shortbread recipe with semolina for a crunchier texture. Find a shortbread recipe at deliciousmagazine.co.uk
  • Crispy chicken
    Mix a large handful of dried breadcrumbs with 1-2 tbsp semolina and season. Flatten 2 skinless chicken breasts between 2 sheets of cling film using a rolling pin. Dip into beaten egg, then coat in the breadcrumb mix. Fry in a little oil until golden and cooked.
  • Roast potatoes
    Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Cook 1kg new potatoes in a  large pan of salted boiling water for 5 minutes, then drain and put in a large roasting dish. Drizzle with olive oil, toss with 1 tbsp semolina, then season. Roast for 30-40 minutes until golden and crisp.
