Thai Rice Salad with a Crispy Egg

So I had some leftover rice which was cold so I decided to do a rice salad. All I had in the fridge was a few mushrooms, an egg, a sweet baby pepper and a shallot. I decided to go down the Thai route as I had no protein and Thai works really well as…

Chinese Leftover Chicken, Sweetcorn, Egg and Noodle Soup

Chicken roast is so simple but probably my favourite roast of all time, I always have Yorkshire puddings and crispy roast potatoes and no veg 🫣. Chicken gravy is epic too if you use the chicken juices and a good quality stock. So after my roast I had a gorgeous carcass left and I always…

Miso Tan Tan Ramen with Black Bean Pork

I had never heard of tan tan noodles before until I saw them on a program called great British takeaways. It got really good reviews from the public who ate it so I just had to give it a go. I started some research and came across a really good recipe that used soy milk…

Spiced Duck Breast with a Soy Sauce, Honey and Ginger Sauce

Happy new year let’s hope 2019 is good to us. Over Christmas I really did eat what I wanted so I’m ready for some healthy food. I had an urge for some Asian flavours but something really simple. This duck dish worked perfectly with the spiced crispy skin. I had broccoli with mine which worked…

Twice Cooked Sticky and Tender Chinese Pork Belly

What’s not to like about this recipe, soft tender pork meat it’s caramelised crispy fat bits and a delicious sauce that the rice can soak up. I’m not keen on the chewy skin on pork belly in Chinese recipes as it isn’t cooked like crispy crackling. Removing it still leaves a fat layer that you…
