Orange and blood orange recipes

Brighten up your day, and your plate, with some of our favourite orange and blood orange recipes.

Add a bright touch to dishes with zest, juice or whole segments of orange and blood orange. We love combining citrus flavours with rich proteins like duck or oily fish, but orange is equally at home with dark chocolate, fennel and pistachio.

Looking for a high-impact visual? You can’t go past a beetroot and orange salad. Italian-style desserts make the most of bittersweet blood orange while sticky doughnuts, moist cakes and more benefit from orange’s citrus zing.

Keep a couple of oranges on hand and you’ll never be far from a stunning dish, whether sweet or savoury.
