    A quick glaze that's nice added to roast chicken during the last 30-45 minutes of cooking. This makes enough for a large chicken.

    Nice little salad style side dish I came up with, quantities will largely depend on the size of the capsicums / bell peppers used so play it by ear and just take quantities listed as a rough guide.It needs a little refrigeration time not included in the preparation time.

    Recipe #486621

    I fancied some sweet & sour chicken with a good quantity of nice thick sauce but couldn't seem to find a recipe so came up with this. I used Bill Hilbrich's recipe#2641 as a starting point for the sauce. It makes a generous size dish for two with lots of sauce for the rice / couscous or you could use say 500g of chicken and divide it four ways.

    This is far from a gourmet recipe but something quick and tasty I came up with after I threw something similar together recently and found the juices from the scallops falling into the water added to the flavour. What I was really thinking initially was just less washing up! But anyway just a nice simple dish for one or two you can change to suit your tastes...

    Idea I came up with for something quick and healthy that can be mostly prepared in advance. I used a large cooked chicken breast cut-up but would also be a good use for leftover roast chicken. Makes 4 large tacos so I think would be a complete meal for two or a light snack / lunch for four, if using the smaller shells you'll probably be able to fill six of them. I listed a gherkin because that's what I used but you could also use a small handful of diced cucumber. Because it's served slightly chilled I think this would make a nice and quick summer meal at the end of a hot day. You could also use a low-fat Greek yoghurt and/or omit the feta. There is not a lot of sweetness in the recipe so I couldn't really say it was a kid pleaser, more of a slightly sharp taste from the salty and sour ingredients.

    Recipe I came up with to serve with a chicken dish but I think it would be also suited to other poulty and game meats. I didn't use a great amount of sugar so the sauce retains a bit of tartness from the currants which was what I was after rather than anything too sweet. Note that it's quite a thin sauce rather than a thick one, aimed at things like rice and battered items that will soak it up, but you could always thicken it with cornflour.

    Recipe #329737

    This is how I hot smoked some oysters and bacon in a small fish smoker. They were shucked on the half-shell when I bought them so I smoked in the lower part of the shell. The small fish smokers get quite hot and put out smoke quickly, so you'll need to adjust the times quite a bit if using a different kind of smoker.

    Variation of a recipe I found on the ABC site. They included a serving suggestion but there are plenty of great sauces on RecipeZaar so I omitted that section. Personally I served with Recipe#174543 but thought I'd leave this as an easy to prepare basic techique you can adapt yourself.

    Recipe #316624

    This came from the book "Thai Food" by David Thompson where he indicates if it is to be deep-fried it should be completely dry otherwise it will shrink and toughen. He also says it will keep for a few days if refrigerated. This recipe is how I prepared the dish using an oven for drying rather than leaving in the sun. Note it requires overnight marination (not included in prep time) and quite a bit of drying time. Makes an interesting snack although it is quite salty & chewy so won't be to everyone's taste.

    Recipe that's a combination of some useful ideas I got from a post in the Aus/NZ forums along with a few ideas from recipes found on the web. If you don't have access to Vegemite try black sauce (thanks mummamills for that and more!).

    Recipe #288843

    Great breakfast or brunch idea. The capsicum stays fairly crisp so if you prefer it softer pre-cook while heating the oven. While eating I thought red onion would also make a good addition so have listed that as an optional ingredient.

    Recipe #281009

    A local pizza joint makes a creamy chicken pizza which is one of my favourites so I thought I'd try to recreate it. They use mushrooms whereas I've used pineapple because I always like the extra sweetness and moisture that pineapple gives to a pizza. I've assumed you are already armed with a pizza base and know how to use it, personally I used Recipe#256080 and cooked on an outdoor grill but then browned a little under a grill. For a fresh dough it's best to pre-cook a little because otherwise the liquid will seep in and make it soggy. I used the quantities listed to top to a 35cm / 14" pizza, it tends to spread out a bit while cooking so make sure you cook in a well sized tray.

    Recipe #278836

    Nice quick way to spriten up some plain beef sausages. I'd personally always go with natural cheese rather than processed for something like this but other pizza style cheeses like mozzarella would be good for a variation.

    Recipe #278421

    Idea I had of using a Thai style red curry to make a jerky. I'm not confident on long-term storage of this recipe so would recommend keeping refrigerated and using in a week or so. Preparation time does not include the marinating time. Leaving the seeds in the chili makes it quite hot, unless you really like a fair bit of heat you should probably remove the seeds so it's more like a commercial jerky spiciness. Otherwise make sure you have a nice cold beer or two on hand ;-).

    Recipe #274911

    I saw this technique in the series Kitchen Chemistry by Heston Blumenthal and thought I'd share it here. Obviously the quantities don't matter just do as many as you want. You'll need a thermometer to do this recipe properly, but for the pre-cook you can just use a meat thermometer and could probably get away with guessing the warm versus hot oil temperature. I personally used bran oil but I think peanut oil would be another good choice but nothing wrong with just using regular vegetable oil either. I used a wok, Chinese scoop and infrared thermometer for the deep frying which is a neat way to deep fry using the more expensive oils because you need less oil in total and don't feel so bad using fresh oil every time. Anyway back to the recipe, the title came from the series and after trying them I think I'd have to agree with Heston. Not as much effort as it sounds and really worthwhile.

    I saw Recipe#132383 which I liked the sound of, but decided to try the idea of a parmigiana stuffed with Camembert. I thought it came out really well and the Camembert did give a good flavour burst in the middle that went well with the sauce.

    Recipe #271662

    Something I prepared using a small spirit fish smoker with mesquite sawdust but any hot smoker should do the trick. For the pepper use your favourite mix or things like Cajun seasoning would work well, I think the texture is nicer using something a little coarsely ground rather than a fine powder. Don't use anything too strong and adjust to taste. Preparation time does not include few hours marination time.

    Recipe #270030

    A slightly sweet, slightly savory chicken stuffing I made up to use some stuff I had around. I didn't have any eggs that I'd normally used to bind but suspected by the time it had cooked and some of the liquid and disappeared it wouldn't make much difference, and it turned out great. This is enough to do a small chicken (say 1.5Kg or less), double the quantity for a large chicken.

    Kangaroo has a great flavour and doesn't need much cooking so I thought I'd try and come up with a quick one pot curry dish that wouldn't overpower it and was nice and creamy. It's still reasonably strong however - if you like really mild curries try a teaspoon of curry powder and a teaspoon of flour instead.

    Recipe #264933

    I was cooking duck and saw the idea of serving with rhubarb relish which sounded nice, but then realised what I thought was rhubarb in the fridge was really silverbeet / chard. I decided to go ahead with the relish anyway and adjust everything to give it a slightly more tart taste that goes really well with a rich meat like duck. I haven't tried yet but think it would also be good with chicken and pork if you prefer a relish that is not so sweet. It is up to you how you chop the onion and silverbeet, I normally don't go too far because I like the texture of a few pieces of vegetables showing.
