Shallow Fried Snapper Recipe

Shallow Fried Snapper Recipe

When the man comes home with fresh fish, this is my favourite way of cooking it! If you’re not big on fishing yourself, a quick trip to the fish market will set you up for a delicious meal of shallow fried fish with a stack of good oils! Ingredients: 1 whole pan-sized snapper (or bream, or any fish for that matter) 1/3 cup coconut flour 1/4 cup almond flour animal fat or coconut oil salt & pepper to taste   Instructions: Wash the fish and pat dry. Cut in half. Combine coconut and almond flour with seasoning in a plastic bag. Add fish and shake to coat in flour entirely. Heat pan with enough fat/oil to cover the entire pan to a depth of 3-4mm. The fat/oil needs to be very hot to seal the fish properly. Shallow fry fish until crispy and golden on both sides.   Serve for example on a bed of cauliflower rice topped with red curry sauce. Garnish with mint & coriander.   Addition: This same cooking method works a treat with kingfish as well.                    ...

Chocolate Almond Milk Recipe

Chocolate Almond Milk Recipe

Here’s a (grownup) chocolaty twist on almond milk – not too sweet, delightfully nutty and utterly refreshing!   Ingredients: 1 1/4 cup almonds 1l water 2 tbsp raw organic cacao powder 2 dates, pitted 1 tsp natural vanilla extract   Instructions: Remove pits from dates and throw all ingredients into the blender. Blend on full blast for a couple of minutes, until all the almonds have blended in entirely. Pour the liquid through a fine mesh, cheesecloth or sieve to remove any remaining pieces of almond & enjoy! Store in fridge and it should keep for 4 days. Also, this chocolate version tends to separate a bit in the fridge (which the plain almond version didn’t do at all), so you might want to store it in a container/bottle that is easy to shake before pouring.   Tip: if you want to make a refreshing cool drink for immediate consumption, add 1/2 of the water in as ice.    ...
Chocolate & Cherry Muffins

Chocolate & Cherry Muffins

  The combination of sour cherries and rich luxurious chocolate in a healthy muffin almost too good to be true! Bake a batch of these when you’re in the mood of pampering yourself with something so tasty that it should be naughty…   Please note: I’m currently on a Whole30, so the only sweetening in these muffins is the dried sour cherries. As a result, the muffins are not very sweet, but instead rich in chocolate with a sweet burst of sour cherries here and there. If you like your muffins sweeter, add in honey or maple syrup until the sweetness of the batter suits your taste better.   Ingredients: 1/2 cup dried sour cherries 1/3 cup raw cocoa powder 2 bananas 1/3 cup coconut flour 1/3 cup almond flour 1/4 cup coconut cream 4 eggs 1 tbsp cocoa butter 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tsp natural vanilla extract 1 tsp baking soda Dozen pecan nuts to garnish (Optional: honey or maple syrup to sweeten)   Instructions: Preheat oven to 175C. Mash bananas on the bottom of a bowl. Add whisked eggs, coconut oil, coconut cream, vanilla extract and mix well. Combine dry ingredients (except cherries) in a separate bowl, making sure that cocoa powder and baking soda are both well mixed throughout. Combine all ingredients together. If the dough feels too thick, add a little more coconut cream, until desired consistency. Divide muffin mix into 12 muffin cups and garnish each with a pecan nut half. Bake for 15-26mins, or until done. A good test is to stick in a toothpick – if it comes out perfectly clean, your...
