We live in a caravan, on the road, permanently travelling around Australia. I’m always trying to develop tasty, simple dishes from what’s on hand. Russ really loved this one last night. Cooking in the bacon fat made them really tasty and is a lot healthier than some of the oils on the market (or so I have been told by others here).
My friend cooked this for us for dinner while visiting her. It's delicious. Remember an Aussie tablespoon contains 4 teaspoons. ETA I made this tonight using a whole side of salmon. I sprayed foil with oil, and wrapped the spepper sprinkled fish in it like a parcel. I cooked it in a hot oven for 12 minutes, then rested it for a few more. I made the sauce in a small pan and tossed the potatoes in the two tablespoons of oil that the salmon was to have been cooked in. The fish was so moist and the dish was delicious.
We've been catching plenty of yabbies for the past few days and this is a recipe I came up with to use some of them. I started the sauce, then let it simmer while I cooked spiral pasta for the two of us. This sauce was really good as it didn't overpower the delicate sweetness of the yabbies.
A really easy to assemble dessert that is the prettiest shade of pink. The recipe asks for a spring-form pan, but I made this in a lovely footed glass bowl which looked great. We don't much like white chocolate so would use dark next time.
I got this recipe from my daughter-in-law who got it from her mum, who got it for a friend and I plan to take it to my sister's for Christmas dinner. Don't like the sound of it? Great! More for me. Seriously, we had it last night and I could have eaten the whole dish on my own. This is one of those dishes that is made better by using good ingredients-our strawberries were fresh from the farm and beautiful!
I saw this made today on Food Safari during a program featuring the food of Mauritius. The sauce is supposedly eaten at least twice a day so I'm imagining it is used with other seafoods, meats and as a condiment. I really want to try this with my home grown tomatoes.
We've been away catching lots of yabbies (crawfish) for the past week. I made this last night and want to make it again soon for some of the family. We tried to extract raw meat from the tails for this, but found it too hard so cooked our yabbies quickly in salted water, then went on with the recipe. You could use shrimp/prawns in this too.
