    So C went off to Tesco on his own on Saturday morning and returned with a 1.5kg bag of fine semolina of which I needed 150g.

    Any ideas of what I can do with it? Seems to be quite popular in cakes!

    Yes, it makes good cake! I also use it, mixed with a little flour, to coat things like escalopes; makes them nice and crunchy. Sprinkle it on roasties, um, oh yes, mixed with cheese on top of cauli cheese, lasagne - that sort of thing and you can always make polenta :)

    Agree with everything Cosmos has said and it makes a really good cheats Southern Fried chicken - mix some semolina with a little finely grated Parmesan, any chopped herbs you want (if you want them), Cajun seasoning and Cayenne pepper then dip some thinly sliced strips of chicken breast in the mixture and fry in a spoonful of oil until cooked through.

    Also good mixed with herbs and spices, then toss in squid rings and fry. Yum.

    Really good in pizza dough.

    Can you use it for semolina gnocchi with a tomato sauce? I think there's a Prue Leith recipe that is delicious!

    Use it in shortbread to make the biscuits crunchier. Season it with herbs and spices and use it to "breadcrumb" fish or chicken/ pork.
