Zucchini Fries with Sriracha Mayo

This is chapter 3 of my best-selling novel “Zucchini Pretending To Be Things Other Than Zucchini”. So after brownies and zoodles, this cheeky veg has only gone and become fries. And damn delicious fries at that.

Vietnamese Caramel Pork

GOOOOOOOOOOD MOOOOOOORNING VIETNAAAAAAAAM! Or good evening, because you probs wouldn’t eat this in the morning. Unless it was 3am and you had a skinful, because Asian food is extra delicious in this case. Caramel Pork is one of those sweet/salty/fatty flavour combos...

Vegan Bolognese

So you watched ‘What the Health?’ And now you’re thinking “what the Hell am I going to eat now that I’ve turned vegan for the next 2 weeks or until I get drunk and eat a kebab at 3am”? Well don’t stress, I’ve knocked up a family fave so you can force everyone in the...

Sweet & Sticky Chicken Wings

Ain’t no thing like a chicken wing! This recipe is based off one of the first things I learned how to cook when I was a kid, but they were chicken legs and, wait for it, they were cooked in the microwave. Foul (see what I did there?) But hey, it was the 80’s and it...
Schnitzel

Schnitzel

“Hey Shazza! Fancy a schnitty down the Rissole this sarv?” (Australian proverb). I always fancy a schnitty and now you can whip them up at home, minus the crap bread crumbs and all the grease. Don’t be a princess about there being a couple of steps in the prep and a...

Seafood Paella

Seafood Paella

The first time I ever went to Spain I was so excited to have authentic Paella. I hate to say it, but I was kind of disappointed. It seemed to me to be a big ol’ panful of rice with not a lot of much else. I needed a search party to help me find […]

Almond Chicken

Almond Chicken

Who doesn’t love easy? Well this dish is mid-week, work-was-shit, the-kids-are-brats, I-can’t-be-arsed easy. It’s also complete with a bonus “oh look, an opened bottle of wine” scenario. So pour yourself a glass, calm your farm and get this on the table in a flash. I’m usually not very demanding of you, but do use smoked paprika, it adds […]

Nut Crusted Salmon

Nut Crusted Salmon

I love me some salmon for my din dins! Not only is it the tastiest darn fish on the market, but packs some powerful health punches to boot. Got some fussy fish eaters at your digs? Convince them to chow down on those Omega 3's by sticking some nuts to those pink...

Stuffed Eggplants with Cashew Cheese

Stuffed Eggplants with Cashew Cheese

Go and get stuffed! Just kidding, but I do insist you go and stuff your eggplants and then stuff your face with them. I’ll be honest, these started out as my version of a Greek dish I had on holidays, but I found the resulting mince mix a little bland for my discerning taste buds, […]

Zucchini and Carrot Fritters

Zucchini and Carrot Fritters

When people get over the horror that I don’t start my day with a bowl of Crapflakes, they are always interested in what I eat for brekky. “Like, so, do you just eat bacon and eggs, like, everyday??” While that sounds delicious, even I need a breather from that piggy goodness. Team these with some […]

Spanish Chicken Casserole

Spanish Chicken Casserole

While I’d like to say I tasted this dish in some awesome restaurant travelling through Spain last summer, that would be a lie. This dish was invented in my little Satwa kitchen, because I had some chorizo in my fridge that was edging close to its use-by date and...

Massaman Curry

Massaman Curry

There is a little restaurant in Bangkok called Ban Chiang which I visit every time I’m there. It’s quite an unexpected place considering its location, but it never disappoints. It’s in an old Thai house, surrounded by loads of greenery and serves the most kick-ass...
