A fairly traditional Australian prawn cocktail recipe with the addition of some tomato and corn to garnish. It always tastes best if you use prawns just freshly cooked but then cooled in the fridge a while.
I started off by searching 'zaar for a different mint potato recipe but to no avail, so thought I'd better post the simple and tasy way that I cook them. I eat with the skins on but they can of course be removed (it's probably easier to remove the skin after cooking and it stops them falling apart while boiling).
This was an original idea I had of using cous cous rather than rice for a sushi. I thought it tasted great but don't be put off by the photo, my sushi rolling skills are quite poor (there might be other terms I'd use in less polite company!).
A slightly different way to cook curried scallops on a barbecue grill plate. The curry paste can be made before hand so they can be quickly slapped on the BBQ at your next get together. They were quite hot with the home-made curry powder I used but are made for a side dish of only one or two each scallops. Besides you should never be having a BBQ without a cold beer in hand!
Adaptation of a recipe I saw on a cooking show a few years ago. I've listed exactly what I used on this occasion but of course a lot of variations are possible and different styles of cheese may be used.
Just came up with this for something different and made a good entree while working out what to cook as the main course. Came out really well I thought, it is on the spicy side so some might like to use half the amount of jalapeno peppers.
Beer batter is an Australian favourite so I thought I'd spice up the traditional recipe a little and cook some battered pineapple pieces. Don't use your last beer when cooking this!! You could also used tinned pineapple pieces but personally I thought some larger chunks would be better.
Last week I went to a place called 'The Salmon Shop' and came back heavily loaded, I'm determined to eat all the 30 salmon cutlets in a different way! This is an original recipe I came up with, note the amount of chili and pepper gives quite a spicy result, some might like to reduce the quantity.
This is a recipe I just came up with because I fancied something along these lines and couldn't find any existing recipes that appealed. It came out well and I think the lemon in the sauce gives a good contrast to the richness of salmon.
This is a technique I came up with quite accidentally and it's not so much the ingredients listed below that matter but the technique that gives a quick way to cook mushrooms on a barbecue or in a pan that have that nice moist texture throughout just like they were slowly cooked in an oven. I'm sure all the lovely stuffed garlic mushroom recipes on 'zaar will work well this way!
