OK, when I asked for suggestions of what I should blog about a few weeks back, some of you said you wanted to know my favourite recipes.
I tend to be a stir-fry cook. Anything that takes longer than a pot of rice takes to boil doesn't much interest me, lol. So, with that disclaimer, here are some of my favourite recipes.
Thai Beef with Egg Noodles
200g egg noodles
375g thinly sliced beef fillet
1tbsp Fish Sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1tbsp Fish Sauce, extra
1tbsp Extra Hot Chilli Sauce
1tbsp sugar, extra
150g green beans, sliced
1tbsp oil, extra
1/2 red capsicum
1cm green ginger, finely shredded
Cook egg noodles according to directions on packet, drain well. Combine beef with fish sauce, sugar and cornflour and set aside. Heat oil in wok, add noodles, stir fry 2 mins, add combined extra fish sauce, extra hot chilli sauce and extra sugar, mix well, remove from pan, place in dishes. Add beans and water to wok, stir fry 3 mins, remove from pan. Heat extra oil in pan, add beef mixture, stir fry over high heat until cooked through, add beans, capsicum and ginger, mix well, spoon over noodles. Serves 4.
Grilled Deep Sea Atlantic Salmon Cutlets
4 salmon cutlets
Juice of one lemon
Dash of Soy Sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
2tbsp freshly grated ginger root
Turn griller to medium. Line grill pan with alfoil. Mix juice of one lemon, dash of soy sauce, enough olive oil to make up to 1/2 cup of mixture, and grated ginger in a small container. Gently combine the sauce. Brush the sauce onto one side of the cutlets, place this side down on the alfoil. Brush the other side of the cutlets with the remaining sauce. Place cutlets under griller for approx 6 mins. Turn cutlets and continue grilling for another 6 mins. Carefully lift cutlet from grill pan and serve with either salad or vegetables. Note that when cooked the flesh will seprate easily into flakes, and the outside skin will be crisp. The coating will be nicely browned but not burnt.
(I tend to use salmon steaks instead of cutlets for this.)
(I have been making this for years and don't measure quantities - Shel, I think this was your recipe? - but here goes)
One onion, chopped
a handful of fresh button mushrooms, sliced
a couple of red chillis, sliced (you can scrape the seeds out if you don't like the heat)
100g ham, sliced
50g cheese, grated
Heat water in pot, throw in fettucine, cook til aldente
In the meantime, heat oil in frypan, throw in onion, mushrooms and ham. Fry until softened. Add chillis. Fry. Stir in cheese and cream until sauce is desired consistency and allow to heat through.
Hope you like.
Maybe next time I'll give you some of the recipes I use for Jamie.
Have a great day
