Food glorious food

I’ve made an effort to experiment a bit more in the kitchen of late.  Such experimenting has resulted in:

(ingredients in bold)



Squid with a salt, pepper and lime batter

  1. Cut the squid into little triangles.
  2. Prepare a mixture of a little bit of flour, sea salt and ground pepper.
  3. Coat the squid pieces in the flour mixture
  4. Heat up a small bit of oil in a frying pan.
  5. Fry the squid pieces
  6. Just before they’ve finished (batter turns a very light golden colour) squeeze in some lime juice.


Barbeque soy honey prawn stir fry

  1. Shell a few cooked prawns.  If bought without shells you’ve saved yourself a bit of work but you’ve also lost out on flavour…
  2. Leave them in a small bowl of barbeque sauce.  My personal faves are the Jack Daniel’s sauces.
  3. jd-sauces-lg

  4. Cut up an assortment of stir fry veg (I recommend carrots, bean sprouts, onions and/or broccoli) as well as a few cloves of garlic.
  5. Start cooking up the noodles, the next few steps will only take a few minutes so no need to start into it til the noodles have 5 minutes left
  6. Add a bit of oil to a frying pan, heating it on a medium flame.
  7. Add in your onions first and whilst they’re softening down a bit throw in soy sauce and honey to your taste.
  8. Add in the rest of the veg gradually working from the hardest veg to the softest.  If needs be, add in a bit more of the soy sauce/honey.
  9. Throw in the prawns in bbq sauce into the mixture and stir up.
  10. Strain the noodles and lash them into the pan mixing it all up before serving.


¡Buen aproveche!
