Salmon Poke Bowl

Poke (pronounced PohKay) is simply fantastic.  It is fresh and healthy and delicious, all in a single bowl!  Poke is the Hawaiian take on sushi, usually served with a marinated raw fish and a selection of vegetables.  But, there are 100’s of variations, really, so it is one of those dishes that you can really experiment with and create your own signature dish.

Home made Wet Cured Back Bacon or Canadian Bacon

I can also promise you that home made bacon is far superior to the commercial crap that you can buy in the shops. If you would prefer leaner bacon then you can make bacon using the loin, which is more commonly known as back bacon or Canadian bacon.

Whole Chicken on the Braai (BBQ)

This recipe really takes me back to my childhood as it is adapted from my mom’s famous Paprika Roast Chicken.  She used to do it in the oven (and I still often do too), but the smoke on the BBQ just adds that additional flavour note that kicks it into orbit!

I absolutely love fish on the “braai”/ BBQ.  But you need the right fish – it has to be firm and a bit fatty so as not to dry out.  So Mackrell – what a great fish for the “braai”.

My Basic Marinade for Fish on the Braai (BBQ)

Generally I hate marinades, because it masks the flavour of the meat, and quite honestly, if you are “braaing”, the marinade generally burns and emparts a bitter flavour to the meat.  But this marinade is very simple and delicate, really adding to the whole experience.

Braai Broodjies (BBQ Toasties)

Ok, so after 57 recipes you should by now know that I love “braai-ing” -T=this is the South African name for open fire cooking, or BBQ as the majority of the world knows it.  But let me just tell you, there is absolutely no nation in the world that is as “be-fok” (that’s another afrikaans word for obsessed) with braaing.
