I often swoon at the thought of noddles, I really have an extreme enjoyment for them but paired with Turkey (not a meat I particularly like), well I just wasn’t sold. However I trooped on and followed the recipe.
My oh my was I proven wrong! The turkey stayed tender and soaked up the sweet and tangy honey, lemon glaze and the noodles packed a savoury, salty punch. Thoroughly delightful!!!
- Fry enough turkey strips for two for 3 minutes
- Add a bunch of chopped Spring onions and 200g of mange tout to the turkey and fry for a further 3 minutes
- Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon, 2 tbsp honey, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp sesame seeds and fry for an additional 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile boil 150g noodles in water and 2tbsp hoisin sauce until soft
Fast, tasty, healthy. Bing, bang, bosh.
Chicken Kiev conjures up memories of frozen hunks of processed meat with a watery garlic mixture oozing out. I don’t know about you, by history with chicken kiev’s isn’t good.
But I don’t live in the past and when I came across this recipe in Jamie’s comfort food back I though “Yes, let’s make some good Kiev memories!”
This is one of the less complex recipes in this book, it was pretty straight forward to undertake and it did not require much prep work.
The result was marvellous! Soft tender chicken, oozing with a thick creamy butter and coated in a light crisp shell. Matched with a broccoli laden mash potatoe and sprinkled with fresh spinach, I found the whole thigh a hearty and comforting plate. A good Sunday dish id say.
Tonight’s menu showcased lamb again! But this time British lamb leg was the cut of choice and boy was it a sensation.
The lamb steaks (seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper) were flash fried for 2 minutes each side leaving them pink and soft throughout and I served the steaks with a great summer salad and Rosemary roasties.
The salad consisted of pomegranate, walnuts, pistachios, shallots, Chilli, parsley, green olives, olive oil and Lemon juice and was a sheer delight. Texture and taste packed!
This dish far exceeded what you would expect from a Monday night at home, a pretty great start to the foodie week.
