We have been back at work nearly one month and after a day in the office, my evenings are a balance of fresh air and spending a little time in the kitchen. I say little because my weeknight dinners are always simple, they are colourful salads with the addition of seasonal fruit, a handful of nuts or seeds and chicken, venison or fish, flashed in a pan or on the [...]
Firstly – Happy New Year! From myself and the team here at ‘Our Kitchen’. Hope the celebrations went well and your head is not too sore today. If you are feeling good and the sun is shining at your place then it’s time to get that grill out and share this great recipe with friends.
For me terrine is one of those dishes I just get a hankering for, not often, just when I feel like a little rich velvety treat. This recipe creates the perfect sized individual treat, filled with salmon, cream cheese and a generous helping of crème fraiche it will indeed wrap you in a velvety warmth.
This time of year is all about eating with friends and eating outdoors. During these warmer months, I’m choosing recipes which allow me to relax and spend time with the people we have over, not trapped in the kitchen. The success to this is finding the right balance between food which can be prepared in [...]
Whilst there’s not a religious bone in my body, I have been unwittingly espousing the wonders of Fish Fridays! Unbeknownst to me the religious significance of eating fish on Fridays runs deep. Eating fish on this day is a commemorative nod to the sacrifice of Jesus who gave his life (on a Friday) to redeem [...]
Over the Christmas holidays I totally over-dosed on fresh tuna. Seared and covered in black pepper, Szechwan stylee [http://ourkitchen.fisherpaykel.com/recipe/simons-szechuan-tuna-with-sesame-slaw/] and, when it is as fresh as it gets; completely raw, soaked in a miso marinade on top of a crispy little wonton.
I’ve had fresh tuna twice this month; two rich doses of omega-3s mean a happy brain and heart. There’s been mixed reviews on tuna in recent years; it’s a tricky debate
This is a fantastic way to get a little variation in your BBQ line-up this summer. After you are completely and utterly over the usual steak and sausage offerings try this wee stunner. This is a great way to cook salmon and add a little smoky flavour too. Rolling the salmon in its skin protects [...]
This recipe is perfect for the days following Christmas – when the chaos is over and you need recipes that require minimal work. I’m planning on making this on Boxing Day, hopefully with the bounty from a fishing trip
The taco has to be the ultimate in street food. A little flavour bomb that conveniently fits in the palm of one hand – fresh, hot, spicy, satisfying – and still leaves a hand free for a cold beer, or wild gesticulation, whilst swapping tall stories on a night out.
I have been to Japan many times now, and always without exception I end up in an izakaya having a couple of beers and eating some of these delicious ‘octopus balls’. Now ‘octopus balls’ as a description may not sound that appealing to many of you out there, but take my word for it these [...]
I remember a version of this as a staff meal and at the time I thought it was so gourmet. Looking at this recipe today, it may have lost its gourmet shine but it is however just as delicious and worthy of a blog post
