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 advance and fresh food that requires just a flash in the pan.
I’ve encountered a really busy time in both work and personal life, the later filled with birthday celebrations, weddings, family gatherings and holidays. It’s been good to have a couple of super quick but undisputedly delicious recipes up my sleeve which I depended on when called upon to ‘bring a plate’. This is one I’ve already used a couple of times this month.
In two days I’m off to the Marlborough Sounds, one of my new favourite places on earth. With an abundance of seafood in this neck of the woods I may just have to adapt this recipe to blue cod or scallop cocktail.
