Croquette of Cod & Smoked Trout

Here is a great way to get your kids eating fish, and also a way to clean out your fridge of any leftover mashed potato in one fell swoop. These babies have all the characteristics of a fun snack to have at garden parties or simply just to eat whenever. Crispy and crunchie on the outside, yet moist and creamy on the inside… delicious!

Pumpkin Curry with Prawns

What does one do when there is a pot of leftover spicy Asian soup chillin’ in the fridge? The boyfriend is never in the habit of eating leftovers the next day so sometimes I have to get creative and make a seemingly new dish from leftover ingredients. Here is a yummy and healthy curry dish which has a pumpkin base as the gravy, string beans and prawns for texture. Totally yummy!

Salmon & Spinach Quiche

It has been a while since I felt this good about making quiche. Usually I use store bought pastry but today I was happy to make my own buttery short-crust dough … it makes a lot of difference. Made myself some beautiful salmon and spinach quiches, and with the leftover dough I made a bacon and leek one for the boyfriend.

Viv’s Great Big American Food Adventure: Maryland-style Crab Cakes

Focusing on a very special dish from the state of Maryland today, I hope I don’t muck it up. Sweet crab meat is pressed into a pattie and baked in the oven with some butter and then served up with some tangy homemade tartare sauce. Serve this with a side salad or as is, as part of your Easter luncheon. Both kids and adults will go wild for these little morsels.

Salmon Tartare with Fresh Cucumbers and Avocado

Today is a rather “posh” salad of raw salmon, cucumbers and avocado … simply dressed with olive oil and fresh herbs. The perfect summertime appetizer to pair with a nice chilled glass of Chablis or sparkling Prosecco. Just make sure you have a plentiful supply of crisp Melba toasts on the side.

Jumbo Cheesy Baked Prawns

A spectacularly visual dish, these cheesey jumbo baked prawns will definitely be the eye-catcher at your table. While it looks fancy, the preparation is surprisingly easy and you will be done in minutes. If you don’t want to broil, then these would cook very nicely on a barbeque over gleaming hot coals as well
.

Malaysian Prawn Sambal

I like this prawn sambal for its citrusy notes. This is a Malasian prawn sambal and it is cooked with very little liquid. Best eaten with nasi lemak, in my opinion, along side a mountain of ikan billis. If rice is not your thing, then flat breads are a good alternative.
