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!

Main dish

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!

Main dish

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 grilling!

Main dish

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.

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!
