Asian style baked fish with bok choy and jasmine rice

I made this a while ago so I hope I get the recipe right. My favourite part of this recipe is the smoking peanut oil. I love anything that has smoking peanut oil drizzled over the top. Not only is it a lovely flavour but the smell really gets the gastric juices going. 4 green…

A foray into chinese

I love asian food but I don’t cook a lot of it. Sash has the whole stir fry thing covered and he’s great with thai flavours. Recently though I’ve been interested in learning more about different styles of chinese cooking. I’d like to make some fresh and interesting things steering clear of sweet and sour…

Vegetarians may want to avert their vision

Been a while since I posted sorry. Life’s been hectic. We had some respite from the genral chaos of life last weekend and put the smoker to good use. Excuse my pic of the smoker Sasha built. My camera was AWOL at the time of it’s construction. I absolutely love the smoker. Apart from a…

Mexican ceviche salad with crispy tortilla chips

We were supposed to have a dinner guest and bought a mountain of seafood with which to make Mexican treats and wash down with our selection of fine mescals.

In the mean time Sasha made steamed salmon with a salad that’s probably looking familiar by now and all drizzled with maple syrup. Sash’s take on nectarine salad 2…

Flavoursome fish

Leatherjacket is a white fish with a prolific bone structure and a full bodied, meaty flavour. It is for this flavour that it is worth persevering with the bones. Sasha makes a lovely simple dish by frying leatherjacket in butter, capers and chopped parsley with a drizzle of lemon juice served with dutch carrots, new…

Cheeky fish and chips

Well… I found myself spontaneously left to my own devices for dinner last night and the pull towards cheap takeaway Indian was great. Not nearly as much home cooked food loving went on in our home over the weekend, nor for the last 2 weeks to be honest. I had a beautiful lunch on Sunday…
