Crispy Eggplant Recipe

Takoyaki Recipe

A couple of years ago a good friend of mine gave me an electric takoyaki maker for my birthday. Takoyaki literally translated means octopus fried, but takoyaki isn’t just fried octopus – it’s a tiny, piping hot ball of batter…

Spot Prawns with Lime and Cilantro Recipe

Spot prawns are Mike’s absolute favourite seafood so now that it’s spot prawn season we’re going to be eating prawns like crazy. We love grilled prawns, but no patio means no grilling so I usually just pan-fry the prawns before…

Shrimp Risotto Balls

The first time I ever made risotto it took forever. I stirred until I thought my arm would fall off. As much as I’d like to say that the result was well worth it, it wasn’t. It was a risotto…
