Fish is the Dish Challenge Part 2: Prawn Curry



I received my second Fish is the Dish package today (you can read more about Fish is the Dish and what I did with the first package here).

Prawns were on the menu courtesy of Lyons Seafood Co - one of my favourites and this colder autumnal weather called for a creamy comforting Korma. The recipe is lovely as it is but if you wanted to up the heat a little bit add 1 tsp of chilli powder at the same time as the ground almonds. Similarly if you prefer curries on the milder side then a spoonful of natural yogurt should do the trick. I added a couple of quartered boiled eggs to each plate at the end  - fish and eggs go well together.... Kedgeree, Fish Pie....try it!


The children helped prepare all of the condiments to go with the curry - raita, mango chutney, naan breads and poppadoms. My four year old also stirred the korma curry paste into the onions and added the coconut milk. A lovely quick weeknight dinner!

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
