This one's really simple and tasty - warm pumpkin seeds served with cocktails.

Pre-heat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 5. Take a metal baking tray and coat the surface with a tablespoon of olive oil. Use a paper kitchen towel to make sure the entire surface is covered.

Pumpkin seeds are available in packets from the supermarkets. Simply pour enough to cover the metal tray one seed deep.

Sprinkle with a very little salt, some finely-ground black pepper and (optionally) a little paprika.

Put the tray of seeds in the oven for about 4 minutes. The seeds will become brown as they roast gently.

Serve warm in a small bowl (on the bar!), with lots of paper napkins for guests to wipe their fingers on.

This dish also works well when you use chilli oil - see my recipe for Spicy Mix.
