Mexican Corn Salad

Mexican Corn Salad is a wonderful fresh corn salad made for summer BBQ’s and Mexican feasts! It’s a giant salad form of Esquites, a corn street snack sold in cups on the streets of Mexico. Corn kernels are sautéed in butter and garlic until golden brown, then dressed in a creamy lime dressing and finished fresh coriander/cilantro and a hint of zing from Jalapeño. It’s outrageously and insanely good!

Sweet and Sour Pork

The best ever Sweet and Sour Pork recipe is loaded with tricks the Chinese have been using for centuries: double dredge and double fry for extra crispy, cornflour instead of flour, economical pork used for juiciness, but tenderised with baking soda so you’d swear they’re pricey chops, and a sauce that’s not sickeningly sweet.

A great Chicken Marinade

This is a great everyday Chicken Marinade, one you make with things you’ve already got with plenty of sub options (see notes). It will make any cut of chicken extra juicy, infuse it with savoury flavour that’s a touch of sweet, with a hint of herby goodness. Especially good for chicken breast, and terrific for …

Whole Baked Fish

The easiest and best way to cook a fish is to bake it whole. The flesh is at its juiciest and most tender, and it’s completely effortless. Cooking fish this way is easy enough for midweek meals, but still makes an impressive centrepiece for occasions! I’m using a whole snapper today, but this recipe will work for virtually any fish!

Oven Baked Chicken and Rice

Made entirely in the oven (no stove!), the rice in this recipe is outrageously delicious! It’s buttery and garlicky, tender but not mushy. The secret tip is to briefly bake onion with garlic and butter before adding the rice, liquids and chicken – it adds a great flavour base!

Honey Garlic Chicken Breast

An incredible quick and easy way to serve up chicken breast – seared then simmered in the most amazing honey garlic sauce. Don’t be deceived by the short ingredient list! It’s absolutely worth the extra step of dusting the chicken with flour because it creates a crust for the sauce to cling to.

Mushroom Pasta

An incredible way to use mushrooms in a meal – in a mushroom pasta! The tastiness of this pasta lies in the mushrooms you use because it’s all about the mushrooms. This pasta is made the proper Italian way so even though it’s only made with 6 ingredients, it’s saucy and juicy and so incredibly tasty!

Singapore Chilli Crab

Here’s arguably the most famous crab recipe in the world: Singapore Chilli Crab! For the pinnacle of the experience, make this using fresh, live mud crab that you clean and cut yourself, or ask the fish shop to cut the crab for you.
Be prepared to get messy eating it (half the fun!) – and to be surprised at how quick it is to make!

Lo Mein Noodles

If you want lip smackingly delicious Lo Mein noodles just like takeout, you just need to get the SAUCE right! The noodle part is easy – you can literally use any noodles, even pasta (yep, seriously). Also, switch out the vegetables with 5 cups (packed) of any chopped vegetables of choice.

Thai Green Papaya Salad

In Thailand, Green Papaya Salad is traditionally made in giant mortar and pestles large enough to hold the entire salad. The dressing is pounded first, and the rest of the salad is added, pounded a little and finally tossed. For this home version, we use an ordinary size mortar instead. We make the salad in stages, then bring it all together at the end in a bowl.
