Crail Food Festival 14-15 June 2014

I know I was suppose to blog about Iona & Staffa but that’s getting postponed. For once I’m actually going blog about something that’s happening right now! Today we went to Crail for their food festival. Its an annual event that’s been taking place for the last 4 years(i think). This was our first time…

Asian Style Roasted Langoustines

www.fussyeater.netThe countdown to Chinese New Year continues with yet another mouth watering dish. Continuing with the seafood theme, its Roasted Langoustines. Yes you read it right. Roasted. I was going to call it baked but it didn’t feel right. It feels like its roasted as opposed to baked as its cooked in a high heat in the oven.

I love langoustines and buy them whenever I can. Whenever we’re up in Oban, we get a bag of langoustines fresh from the fish monger to cook in our self catered accomodation. Its so cheap because the fish shop’s run by the fishermen(or its the same family run business, I’m not too sure, I just know they are both tied) and it tastes amazing!

Steamed Fish-Chinese Style & Tips

I love steamed fish. Its so nutritious and sooooo tasty. It conjures happy childhood memories of the whole family sitting around the table tucking into my mum’s out of this world, impossible to beat, crazy delicious steamed fish.

Asian Style Steamed Langoustines

I was just checking through all my food pictures when I came across this beauty. I love taking pictures of food, especially if its something home cooked. Sadly, most of my photos are grainy, over or under exposed. I’m always soo jealous when I read other people’s blogs. Almost every blog I read have incredible…

Sweet Chili Crab Claws

I got these crab claws at the farmers market last week. I enjoyed them sooo much and was really looking forward to the farmer’s market yesterday. However, I was so preoccupied with making a Sonic the Hedgehog cake that I completely lost track of time and before I realised it, it was 3pm. Far too…

Asian Style Steamed Salmon & Veg

I made this for dinner yesterday. Martin liked it so much, he wanted it for dinner today! Its such an unassuming dish. Often when I tell people I’m having steamed fish for dinner, they give me a weird look. I’m guessing its conjuring up some pretty unpleasant experiences for them. That isn’t the case for…
