Salmon in chirimea sauce

1140133.jpg

Another recipe from Jerusalem. I think after Nigel Slater’s Appetite it is now the cookbook that I’ve cooked the most recipes from.  It seems to be one of those cookbooks where everything turns out exactly like the picture. This was a really interesting dish. The sauce is quite spicy but subtle, and it includes roasted […]

Crab Curry

2up2.jpg

This was a while ago now (just getting the blog back up to date after a busy time moving house). I volunteered to cook a crab curry using my grandmother’s recipe (above) for an Indian-themed feast at a friend’s house. I’d never cooked with crab before. I must admit, I did feel a little sad […]

Ortiz anchovies, grilled bread, pickled peppers

P1100399.jpg

This blog is no longer up-to-date-chronologically, and this is barely even a recipe… But, Ortiz anchovies are the best in the entire world, and we ate some a while ago (when it was still sunny in Melbourne, by the looks of it), and I took some photos.

Grilled trout with pepper and roast cabbage

P1100544

I did warn you about the griddle pan — my new favourite way to cook. I just dressed the trout with loads of pepper, a little salt and oil and cooked it over high heat (oily fish is great on the griddle, it goes great and crispy), and served it with a squeeze of lime. […]

Penne with “green” tuna sauce

_1080181

Once again, a dish with a few things that were lying around. I made a green paste by grinding up parsley with a little salt and olive oil, and just threw the other bits together in a pan. The hot english mustard was conceived as a chilli substitute and added a soft warmth (quite different […]

Salmon steaks, fennel and basil salad, garlic and ajvar

_1080011

This is what we had for dinner while the casserole is “flavourfying” in the fridge. Plus it’s Market Day today (which makes it both a Cooking Day and a Fish Day). I fried the seasoned salmon steaks in a hot pan with some enormous organic “elephant garlic” cloves. The salad was also simple – finely […]

Tuna patties

_1070355

I haven’t made these for ages. Fish patties were a regular meal when I was a kid. I make them differently every time – I think mum used to use tinned tuna, grated carrot, grated onion, flour and egg. This time I used cooked onion, parsley, finely chopped celery, lemon zest (no carrot). You need […]

Pan fried ocean trout, steamed vegetables with ginger and garlic

_1070311

If anyone is paying attention to the dates on these posts, no, we didn’t have 3 meals in one night. I’m just catching up on posts – I have got in to a good habit of taking photos of my cooking, but I don’t seem to get around to posting them… I just fried the […]

BBQ snapper, grilled capsicum & zuchinni

_1050313

We made this for a dinner in Perth a few weeks ago before we left for Spain. I coated the fish with lemon zest, herbs and seasoned flour before cooking on a hot barbecue. I also grilled some capsicum and zucchini, and K made a delicious lentil salad and some beans to go alongside. Yum!

Pan fried salmon with asparagus

_1030412

The skin of the salmon stuck to the pan and made a kind of “salmon crackling” – not really what I was aiming for, but very tasty.
