Epi 5 Part 2: Snapper Thai Mango Salad

I love Asian food and spices and sometimes find clean eating and salads lacking in the flavours I am familiar with. So this dish, Snapper with Thai Mango Salad proves that we can straddle both the flavours and yet keep this meal sexy, fresh and low carbs. You can always alternate the use of palm sugar with honey or maple syrup or use less of the amount called for. However, the salty, sweet and sour taste of the dressing is in the balance of those ingredients. I am using locally caught snapper ...

Fabrizio Spanish Crumbed Mackerel with Miso Vinaigrette, and Beans Salad

    Where we can, I like to support local produce and use locally sustainable seafood. Do you know the local Spanish mackerel has similar content of Omega 3 fatty acids to that of the salmon? Yet its available locally, mostly wild caught and 3-times cheaper than the salmon. For this dish, the Spanish mackerel pairs so well with the bean salad and miso dressing. Flaxseed is high in Omega 3, fiber and protein! When grounded, its a better alternative to using plain flour. It ...

Epi 3: Part 2 – Flo Beer & Honey Chicken

Clean eating doesn’t have to be boring. In this episode, Flo (Melaya Honey) takes a very ordinary chicken breast, massaged and dressed it to make it attention grabbing! All done with only 6 ingredients and before long, you have breast you want to eat and savour! A lot of Asian shun away from breast meat thinking its too dry for their liking. But breast is a healthy part of the chicken as it contains little fat. To minimise the meat getting dry and tough - try this recipe with the beer ...

So find some time over the weekend, you would not regret making this sexy salad, every bit as delicious as it sounds. Let me know what you ...

Steffles’ Asian Fish or Crab Cakes

Just like my marriage, I love marrying East with West. One ventures into new territories of sight, taste, sound and mind, without losing your own heritage. So here's a western fish cakes recipe made with asian seasoning and herbs. The cakes can be made 1 day in advance and fried just before serving. Served with a Salsa dressed in Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, this makes a great starter or double it up for mains. This is so good, cook it for your partner when you need to regain back some ...

Cauli 2-Ways with Nuoc Cham

The pale cauliflower never turned me on as much as his beautifully green cousin broccoli does. Always felt that the white inflorescence is rather tasteless and bland unless consummated with cheese and milk in a gratin. Recently though he has been courting me unfailingly, and I finally succumbed because he is low in fat and carbohydrates and rather high in Vitamin C, with fleeting appeal of Vitamin B and K. Besides his sensibilities, I discovered he is also pretty flexible and I can ...
