Fresh Friday visits the wonderful spices of India this week.
We begin with a South Indian style seafood coconut curry, served with coconut rice, kachumber salad and pineapple pickle. Its an easy cook and serve meal. Freshness is key, so the seafood including local prawns and fish is fully prepared and waiting to be added to the boiling coconut curry sauce I have made. The coconut jasmine rice is ready for reheating and the salad and pickle just needs to accompany the seafood and rice.
I am also making a vegan version of the coconut curry for those who don’t eat seafood. For those who like some heat in their food, I am offering our Habanero Chilli Hot Drops to use with the main course.
Our dessert is a refreshing Indian favourite, traditional kulfi ice-cream flavoured with cardamon and pistachio nuts.
Hola Fresh Friday friends,
With Spain in the news, specifically the volcanic island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, I thought why not make some dishes with Spanish heritage.
So I present you with Caldo Gallego (Spanish White Bean Soup), Braised smoked paprika chicken with Spanish rice and the famous dessert, Spanish caramel flan. Huge flavours, big textures and wonderful aromas.
Muchas gracias! Peter
Dear Fresh Friday friends,
This week we are kickin’ up our heels and off to Southern USA.
I am preparing baked Louisiana Cajun Chicken wings, featuring our Cajun Spice Mix and Northern Rivers BBQ Essence. Served with buttered sweet potato and corn mash, red cabbage and apple slaw, cheddar and corn muffin and finally a Red Pepper salsa made with our Red Capsicum Finishing Vinegar.
For those who like it hot I will have small containers of our new Habanero Chilli Honey to drizzle. It’s a finger lickin’ feast!
Followed by “My best pecan butterscotch pie” with yoghurt mousse.
Dear Fresh Friday friends, this week we celebrate La Dolce Vita.
For Fresh Friday this week we bow our heads and mourn the loss last week, of the great Greek composer and political activist Mikis Theodorakis, at the age of 96.
Amongst the many of his life works, Mikis wrote the score to the film Zorba the Greek. What a legacy he has left for the Greek nation and the world. Efcharistó Míki
