Sausage rolls with a lovely 'asian' twist. These can be prepared and cooked in advance and then reheated before serving. Or you can freeze them before they are cooked, then simply defrost before baking.
I tasted these when my daughter served them at a party and this is the only way I make sausage rolls now.
This is an impressive looking dish that I saw in my local supermarket Xmas magazine, and great if you have to cater for vegetarians. I have not made it but I love the ingredients and I think the flavours will work well.
This recipe is sufficient for 2 chickens, stuffed with a curried rice stuffing and cooked in a tasty curry sauce. This dish is even better when prepared a day ahead as the flavours mix together and will be even tastier heated up the next day.
This is a very simple but scrumptious apple pudding cake that is easy to make. Basically a cake mixture with apple and a sauce that tops it as soon as you remove it from the oven. The sweet sauce sinks into the cake and makes it moist and beautiful. Serve warm with cream or vanilla ice cream. Delish!
A Thai style dressing to marinate your salmon, then cooked on the barbecue - with a cucumber/mango salad. Serve with steamed rice and a lime wedge. From my local supermarket summer entertaining recipes. Chicken breast fillets can also be substituted. Hubby is allergic to seafood, so this seems like a nice option for me us - salmon for me chicken for him!
Note: Note: Prep time does not include marinating time of 30 minutes.
These spicy chicken skewers are very simple to make but taste absolutely delicious, grilled for all of 8 minutes! You do need to marinate these for at least 4 hours so plan ahead, however the marinade is so quick and easy to make it takes all of 5 minutes! Serve with a crisp leaf salad for a great low carb main meal
This is a lovely adaptation of Nicoise Salad from a low carb recipe book I have.The recipe calls for 175g grilled tuna steak, however I used a tin of Ocean Rise Yellow Fin Tuna Slices in olive oil with chilli (sold by Aldi in OZ). Using a tuna in olive oil enables you to use the oil from the can to make a lovely spicy salad dressing. My DH and I both enjoyed this very much and it is so quick and easy to make and low carb to boot!
Note: I made this again with other tinned tuna and I have to admit that the results are much better using the olive oil that the tuna has been canned in.
I think I saw this on a cooking program on TV. I have made the chilli jam and it is absolutely beautiful. I never cook seafood as hubby is allergic, but this chilli jam, served with the chargrilled squid looked absolutely divine on TV!
This Asian inspired dish is from Marie Claire Flavours. I grow my own Kaffir Lime leaves, so I am always on the lookout for recipes including it. This goes beautifully with the pork and ginger and it is a dish full of flavour you will love if you like Thai flavours.
A recipe considerably adapted from a 1998 Home Beautiful magazine. A very tasty not too 'eggy' frittata. Serve this with a fresh carrot salad - suitable for vegetarians as well. The original recipe called for strong blue cheese, however I substituted a tasty cheese. Additions such as mushrooms and red capsicum makes this even better.Can also be baked in a pre-heated hooded barbecue.
I do not usually like using packet or tinned soups in cooking, however had to make an exception as this is truly delicious. Quick and easy to throw together and makes a rich, thick sauce which has a slightly sweetish, slightly spicy flavour dependant on the chutney used.
This recipe was featured in the Australian WW. Apparently this dish is a variation on a Vietnamese recipe traditionally prepared for new mothers. The salt from the fish sauce would create thirst, so the new mothers would drink plenty of water, allowing them to produce plenty of milk for the newborn baby! I have not tried this recipe, but saw it made on TV and it looks absolutely divine so I have to try it.
This is a beautiful tart containing caramelised onions (from my book of tried & tested handwritten recipes). Even people who do not like onions will eat this one. Makes an excellent light meal accompanied by a salad. Also good if you have to cater for vegetarians
