Prawn Nasi Goreng – 6sp

Nasi Goreng literally translates as ‘fried rice’ in Indonesia. This delightful dish is a great option if you are looking for something really straight forward, quick and tasty. I’ve just used a shop bought paste here as it’s not too many points and is a lovely flavour. I haven’t added any extra chilli as it already has a nice kick but you can always add some crushed chillies at the end if you like things really hot! I will also be posting a recipe with my own paste but since lots of you are asking for this recipe to make this week, I thought I best not keep you all waiting! I got my paste in Tesco but I know lots of other supermarkets do their own version too.

Chicken Tikka Jambalaya – 6sp

My chicken and chorizo jambalaya is one of my most popular recipes and I’m also a big fan so last week, when I was thinking of ways to jazz up my jambalaya, this idea hit me and I knew I had to give it a go. The result was delicious, filling and yet packed with flavour, you would never believe that the bowl food of food that I ate at the end was only 6sp. Even better, it now means I have two delicious recipes for jambalaya…winner!

Fiery Beef Madras – 2sp

One of my OH’s conditions for me getting my beautiful puppy was that we would have ‘curry Sundays’ which to be fair, we have mostly stuck too (with the exception of last night!). Last week, in an effort to keep things interesting, I whipped together this lovely curry and I have to say, it may be my favourite curry creation yet. I cooked this on a low simmer for an hour so the sauce was lovely and rich and the beef lovely and soft and falling apart. If you don’t have time to do this however, just pop it on a higher heat for anywhere from 15 minutes.

Minted Pea Risotto with Seabass and Asparagus – 10sp

Risotto is a dish that I don’t often have time to make but always feels like a real luxury dish to devour. This week, having had a craving for risotto, I decided to pair it with another one of my favourite ingredients, seabass. Having never had the two together I wanted to find an ingredient to unite them and what better than some minted pea puree! And the result was this fabulous dish.

Teriyaki Tuna with Lime and Coriander Rice – 10sp

Keen to keep up with my intake of fish , this week I decided to put together another tuna recipe. I love teriyaki sauce and thought this would be a lovely pairing so I set about putting together a dish which combined both. The result was delicious. My OH cleared his plate in less than five minutes. Tuna has such a lovely meaty texture and it works so well with the Asian stir fried veggies, the whole dish turned out to be very tasty indeed!
