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 ...

Epi 4 Part 2: Fabrizio Flaxseed Mackerel, Beans Salad & Miso Vinaigrette

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 also imparts a nice nutty ...

Kecap Manis Satay

Super kids friendly, non-spicy, easy satay recipes to make! Kecap Manis, an Indonesian word is literally translated to "Sweet Soy Sauce".
