Smoked Mackerel Potato and Leek Pie

Oh my gosh, this smoked mackerel and potato pie was so much better than I could ever have imagined. How complicated can a Smoked Mackerel and Potato Pie be to make? Complicated if you choose to make your own pastry, smoke your own fish and maybe plant your own potatoes. Luckily for me, I have […]

Poke Bowls

Poke Bowls or Poké Bowls are the new craze in my family. The kids love it and I love them for eating so healthy. There is really nothing unhealthy or bad about what’s in a poke bowl. Think of it as sushi in a bowl. Poke Bowls are not from Japanese origin as I have […]

This Smoked Mackerel Salad hit the spot tonight. No cooking in my kitchen today.

You simply have to love fried fish! You live in the Cape, it goes without saying, right! Hell, yes, I do live in Cape Town and I do like fried fish, but I hate badly fried fish! I hate soggy, oily fish and I am not particularly fond of thick stodgy batter on my fish. […]

Bean Recipes – Warm Bean and Potato Salad!

Posted on November 30, 2009 by in seafood

Bean recipes are what I look for these days when I open a new food magazine or recipe book. “Why?” would you ask and I would say, “because we are eating more and more beans in this house and less and less red meat! Studies have shown that eating more beans, could lower your cholesterol […]
