Lemon Chicken & New Potatoes


New potato salad
10 small new potatoes
Grated sea salt
Grated Pepper
1 small table-spoon of butter
1 table-spoon of olive oil
1 hand full of thyme

Lemon chicken
1-2 chicken breasts
Grated pepper and sea salt
1 lemon slice (1/2 -1 tablespoon of juice)
4 basil leaves
Butter and oil for the pan

Make Lemon Chicken & New Potato Salad

Wash the potatoes well to get rid of any dirt. Boil the potatoes until they are cooked, check with a knife, if it slides into the potato without resistance it is ready. Drain the ready boiled potatoes and add them to a bowl. Pour over olive oil and add the butter. Use a pair of scissors to cut the thyme and grate sea salt and black pepper over the potatoes,  mix well. Serve with Bean and Radish salad.

The potatoes and the salad fit well with other types of meat as well. The second time I made this dish I made it with pork chops. I used thyme instead of basil and I didn’t use lemon. Rub, salt, pepper and chopped thyme onto the meat and fry it on medium heat in a mix of butter and oil.

Homemade Spring Rolls


Rapeseed oil for pre frying
3 handfuls of soy beans
2-3 carrots
1 yellow pepper
1 red pepper
2 asian spring onions
3 cloves of garlic
1 thumb sized piece of ginger
1/4 piece of cabbage
300 grams of minced pork
1 yellow onion
1 hand of chopped coriander
2 tablespoons of thai fish sauce
1-2 tablespoons of sugar
5 tablespoons of soy sauce
20 spring roll pastry sheets

Making Homemade Spring Rolls

Slice the peppers, carrots, spring onions, onion and cabbage into very thin sticks and chop the garlic and ginger into small pieces. Heat oil in a wok and fry the minced pork until it gets a bit of colour. Then add sliced vegetables, chopped garlic and ginger, soy beans, coriander, soy sauce, fish sauce and sugar to the wok and let it all cook/fry for a few minutes. When the mix has tendered add to a sift and leave to drain.

Take out one of the pastry sheets and lay it in front of you, one of the corners facing you. Put some of the veg-mince- mix onto the sheet and fold it, as this guy does in the video 0:32 seconds in. Repeat until you have used up all the veg-mince- mix.

Heat up oil in a saucepan or a deep fryer, if you have one. Deep fry the spring rolls until they become golden in colour, take them out of the oil and let them drain before tucking in.

Serve with a side of wild rice, side salad, and sweet sour sauce.

Oven baked Zucchini


2 zucchinis
250 grams of minced pork
1 teaspoon of homemade chili salt
1 clove of garlic
1/2 pack of taco spice
Oil for frying
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 can of sweet corn
2 tablespoons of Crème Fraîche
1 tablespoon of ketchup
Olive oil and Sea salt
Grated cheddar

Making Oven baked Zucchini

Add the mince to a bowl with chili salt, taco spice and finely chopped garlic. Mix well before frying. Wash the two zucchinis before you cut them in halves. Scrape out the seeds so that the zucchini becomes hollow and there is room for filling. Take out an oven proof dish and sprinkle the bottom with olive oil and sea salt. Lay the zucchinis in the dish, hollow part up. Add the taco-mince to a clean bowl and mix in finely sliced onion, sour cream, ketchup and sweet corn.  Scoop out the mix with a spoon and distribute the mix in the hollow of the zucchinis. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake in a preheated oven, 200 degrees Celsius, for 30-40 minutes until the zucchinis are tender and the cheese is melted. Serve with a sour cream dip.

Sweet & Sour Pork


350 g diced pork
Pepper and salt
1 big carrot in thin long slices
1 green pepper in slices
1 onion in slices
1 small box of pineapple in pieces
2 tablespoons of oil for frying

Homemade Sweet & Sour Sauce

3 tablespoons of sugar
4 table spoons of soy sauce
(In the soy sauce mix in a teaspoon of flour, it will thicken the sauce)
1 ½ tablespoon of white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of ketchup
1 decilitre of chicken stock
Pineapple syrup from the box

Making Sweet and Sour Pork

Pepper and salt the meat before frying it in multiple turns and laying it aside. I would say a teaspoon of salt and some rounds on the pepper mill would suffice.  Vegetables get a fast turn in the hot wok pan and are put with the meat. Put all the ingredients for the sweet and sour sauce in the wok/frying pan and let it boil up. Add the pork and the vegetable and let it warm through. Serve with rice.
