Roasted and Curried Red Snapper

Roasted and Curried Red Snapper My theory was, that if it is baked in a baking paper bag it would keep all the juices in the fish and therefore be super moist? Yep it worked roasted and Curried Red Snapper is quite a simple recipe, although there is a fair bit of prep. You end up with this beautifully baked fish curry in a bag, and the curry turns almost like a Tom Yum soup. Quite an amazing transformation happens in the bags as you're baking.

Chicken Laksa Recipe

Chicken Laksa Recipe I know, I know, laksa should not have chicken. Prawns, cockles and all that is so not my bag. So I have reverted to have a couple of prawns, and chicken for the main meat elements.

This will feed about 6 people. Yes there is a slight cheat, but it's just to create the base. You will need; ...

Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce

Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce I was starving one day, and could not be bothered to go all out cooking, and came up with this little dish; Boiled eggs with Paprika Sauce.

Set the clock for 15 minutes and there ...
