Hello there from team Asian Invasion! While politics over in the West grinds to a halt (or grinds to something), we thought we'd talk about how we cooked and ate to divert our minds from the situation over in the land of hope and stuff.
Team Asian invasion is all about trying new and different things. Flavours sweet, savoury and just down right scrummy. We enjoy things a little bit different... unexpected you might say. The other thing we like is gadgets and we all know the Internets is just one big gadgets!
So our weekend of NomNomNom involved Farhan, slightly injured and myself cooking some soup:
The soup contained small cuts of fish (cod, haddock, tilapia, mahi mahi and hake) with carrots, leeks, onions, fennel and spiced up with turmeric, chilli powder, ginger, parsley and butter.
Our salmon was gently heated and then placed on a bed of courgette noodles, with a side of spinach and onions then finished with a generous drizzle of our parsley and cucumber sauce.
The two salads were a variety of rocket, spinach and leaves paired with either beetroot, orange and avocado and pomegranate or carrot, cress and cucumber.
Finishing off the meal was a combination of diced dates, sultanas, and pomegranate, mixed together with bit of raspberry jam, spooned onto half a date and covered with a generous sprinkling of dessicated coconut.
We really enjoyed NomNomNom 2011, were glad such a brilliant cause was behind it and prefered it to the FatDuck (that's saying something!) - so thank you to everyone who took part and the organizers :)
