Flathead Carpaccio


Flathead Carpaccio 

is one of my favourite recipes from Pete’s cookbook (Fish) and I have slightly altered it. Thanks Pete!

200 g flathead fillet (boneless and skinless)….    slice very thinly (on an angle) and lay it out on a platter. Season with

ground white pepper and

4 tablespoons finely sliced fresh ginger….         Then drizzle with

4 tablespoons of grape seed oil                         to coat the fish lightly. Put the platter in the oven (150 degree C, preheated), but

                                                                           only for 2-3 min (fish still rare). In the meantime prepare the coriander:

1 bunch of coriander, leaves, stalks and roots: Finely chop the roots (1 tsp) and the stalks (1 tsp). Keep leaves whole for after.

                                                                           Prepare the dressing: Heat

2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons mirin

100 ml chicken stock                                          until simmering, then add:

1/2 garlic clove minced

1 tsp chopped chilli and the coriander roots.     Cut 

1 rasher of bacon into very thin strips and add together with coriander stalks.

                                                                           Drizzle this warm dressing over the fish and finally top with

2 spring onions, finely sliced

grated orange zest of 1 orange

2 tablespoons chives (snipped) 

and seaweed strips (if you like)

  – Great starter for 4 –





E-Motion – interesting new documentary

Emotions are called the ‘elephant in the living room of modern medicine’. Amazingly it’s largely overlooked in diagnosis and filed in the ‘stress-category’ at best.

All is energy and we need ways to address that subconscious imbalance, created by the emotions of past experiences, stored in our bodies and creating our dis-ease. EFT is one of the ways, albeit not the only one.

As Dr. Joe Dispenza reiterates: Our body cannot tell the difference between reality and our thoughts or the memories from past experiences.

LSA Banana Pancake

ImageHealthy Pancake

My friend Linda made this very healthy alternative of a pancake on the weekend:

2 ripe bananas (broken down, but not entirely mashed)

2 eggs (unless bananas are very small, then one egg)

LSA (Linseed/Sesame/Almond meal) mix – enough to make it a pancake dough (approx. 100 g)

Make pancakes as usual (with coconut oil or butter)

Topping as you love it: strawberries on a bed of plain yoghurt

– or blueberries / maple syrup / raspberries 

I loved it!
