Sardine and Fennel Pasta

It is close to January’s pay day so if your budget is pinching this utterly delish Sardine and Fennel Pasta might save the day. Made with tinned sardines that does not cost an arm and a leg, neither does fennel and pasta for that matter but it certainly does not taste like a budget meal. And if you have some spare change for a splurge, sprinkling it with pine nuts is pretty fantastic but not required at all for a…

Mackerel Pate with Quick Pickled Red Onion

This recipe for Mackerel Pate with Quick Pickled Red Onion is one of those minimal effort with maximum flavour and reward dishes. And I think it offers a tasty alternative to the usual salmon pate which appears on all menus over the festive season. Bonus that it is easily made from tinned mackerel and I guarantee no one will guess that it is made with tinned fish. You can be quite flexible and change the sour cream with a smooth…

Curry and Beer Battered Fish Tacos

Few dishes sound as good as Curry and Beer Battered Fish Tacos in my book. I’m a firm believer you can’t have a curry without some beer so combining the two makes perfect sense to me. The fish is flavoured with the curry spices and then dipped into a beer batter for a deep frying. That is a whole lot of comforting dude food on a plate. I used a fragrant Goan Fish Curry spice available on the My Collections website…

Paella l heinstirred.com

I think you have to be pretty brave to publish something like a Paella recipe. Somehow you will be doing or adding something that someone somewhere will deem to be wrong and a sacrilege. But since I am not Spanish I guess I can take a liberty or two. Even if it means they will not allow me to enter the country when I next want to visit. And then I still have to mention I used a premixed Paella…

Smoked Snoek Empanadas

This blogging journey is quite an exciting one I have discovered (between all the dish washing and reheated food!). You post your first recipe (with quite a bit of courage) hoping that someone other than your mother will look at it and then one morning you receive an email from a television breakfast show inviting you to the show to make one of your recipes. So this past Thursday I found myself on the Expresso Morning Show, making those delicious…

The first time I came across Cauliflower Couscous was on www. drizzleanddip.com and it has been a staple ever since for “low carb” dinners. I am sure the Banting Diet crowd will just love this and it is fantastic as a mock couscous or to replace any pasta. But even with no diet in mind this is a surprisingly tasty way of preparing cauliflower. Make it plain with just some seasoning as the “starch” for a bolognese sauce or meaty…
