Mediteranian Inspired Grilled Fish

I eat fairly regularly fish as part of my diet.  One of the most common methods I like to use, is to oven bake the whole fish in one go, Mediterranean style, with a little tomatoes, capsicums and mushrooms.  It’s a quick, easy and nutritious meal to prepare, normally ready within half and hour.  The beauty of this method is that it’s not only cooking in it’s own juices, but the run off from the fish stops the vegetables from burning or sticking to the foil.  Add a little rice and you can spoon the juices over it, adding to the flavour.  I hope you enjoy this recipe, as much as I enjoy eating it.

Cous Cous and Cajun Chicken Wings

This weeks recipe is a bit of a strange combination of New World cuisine, meets Old. I was quite happily making a batch of Cajun Chicken wings (with an awesome spice recipe provided by, Cooking Up The Pantry) when I thought, maybe eating 2kg’s of chicken wings isn’t the healthiest meal I could be making.  So rummaging through the pantry I found a bag of cous cous and fortunately enough ingredients in the refrigerator to make a light and tasty cous cous salad.  After whipping up a batch of both wings and cous cous, not only did I have a very happy belly, but leftovers to savour later on in the week. The only caveat is unlike many of my usual recipe’s, this one you need to give yourself 24 hours, to let the dry rub work it’s magic. So sit back, read and enjoy of old meets new, east meets west.
