Sardine and Salmon Fish Cakes With Creamed Leeks

By | April 17th, 2018|Fish and Seafood Recipes|

If you have been hanging out here for a while you a) need to get out more and b) know that I have a bit of a thing for fish cakes, as a result the appearance of these salmon fish cakes should not be a surprise. They appear at a time of the year that is always very strange as a cook because it is not quite summer but not really hearty comfort food weather either.

General Tso’s Chicken

By | April 13th, 2018|Chicken & Other Bird Recipes, FakeAways, Spicy Recipes|

  General Tso’s chicken. General Tso’s Chicken is one of those relatively modern day dishes with a surprisingly disputed history. One would think that dishes developed as recently as the 1970’s would have their history clearly defined. It is a constant source of amusement that this is often not the case. In similar fashion the history of both the Chicken Tikka Masala and Balti Curry are both hotly disputed. What is undeniably true is that as a species we humans live to argue about shit that really aint all that important. The thing that is generally accepted is that it [...]

Instant Pot Braised Pork Belly With Apples and Puffed Crackling

By | April 10th, 2018|InstantPot Recipes, Pork Recipes|

Sometimes spending time in the kitchen to create a tasty meal and for me this is undeniably one of those meals! It is as cheap as chips to make and owing to the magic of pork belly it packs a punch of flavour that most meats cannot get anywhere near. I have written about pork belly before here on Krumpli and it is certainly one of my favourite cuts of meat.

Pan Fried Cod with Peas and Leeks

By | April 6th, 2018|Fish and Seafood Recipes|

  Pan Fried Cod with Peas and Leeks. Cod is a rare find here in Hungary as a result I wanted to keep this dish simple and opted the simplest of all methods. A simple pan fried cod fillet. I really do wish I could cook with cod or pollock more often, alas it is a rare treat. Peas have definitely featured here a fair bit in recent weeks. My desire to use up my stock is strong and I am sure I have previously mentioned my love of peas. I’ve actually been working on a [...]

Traditional Cornish Pasty

By | April 3rd, 2018|Beef & Lamb Recipes|

A traditional Cornish Pasty dates back to the 13th century and unsurprisingly is the source of much discussion, nay argument. However to call this dish famous in the UK would be an understatement, any food stuff name checked in classics like the Robin Hood Chronicles, the Canterbury Tales and no less than three works of Shakespeare is no shrinking violet.

Pea and Ham Risotto with Goats Cheese

By | March 23rd, 2018|Pork Recipes|

I have waxed lyrical about the core ingredients in this pea and ham risotto previously and it is another iteration of flavours that will repeat here forever. Why? Well simply because they are magical, salty ham, slightly acidic goats cheese and sweet peas are a match made in heaven as far as I am concerned.

Pepper Chicken Chettinad

By | March 20th, 2018|Chicken & Other Bird Recipes, FakeAways, Spicy Recipes|

  Pepper Chicken Chettinad. There are a whole host of Chicken Chettinad recipe on the web and I have no idea which is authentic, but I do know which sort of iteration is my favourite. Unsurprisingly it is this one! While it may be true that there is a variety of iterations of Chicken Chettinad the common theme among them all is the importance and prevalence of black pepper. I have mentioned numerous times how much I love black pepper, in fact I think it is the most underrated, or at least most taken for granted [...]

Pan Fried Duck Breast with Braised Endive and Anchovy Sauce

By | March 6th, 2018|Chicken & Other Bird Recipes|

  Pan Fried Duck Breast with Braised Endive and Anchovy Sauce Surely you all know by now how much I love cooking with duck and this pan fried duck breast joins recipes as diverse as Duck Tikka Massala to a classic Duck a l‘Orange. As can be seen from these photographs I am also rather keen on rare/pink duck and this recipe plays around with a new technique for me. Surprisingly I have never really got on with the cold pan method of cooking pan fried duck breast and as a result decided it was time [...]

Herb Crusted Baked Salmon With Peas and Rocket

By | February 23rd, 2018|Fish and Seafood Recipes|

I typically grill salmon because it is quick and simple but I love a bit of baked salmon too and this verdant green number is inspired by the changing content of our supermarket shelves… It may only be the end of February but the green stuff is returning and I will be planting crops this time next month

Bacon Wrapped Baked Pork Tenderloin With Balsamic Carrots

By | February 13th, 2018|Pork Recipes|

There are so man great things on the plate in this bacon wrapped baked pork tenderloin recipe, all designed to be relatively subtle so that the subtle flavour of the pork tenderloin is still there. I like cooking with pork tenderloin as it is super quick and simple to prepare, this whole recipe, all four elements can be on your plate in an hour or less and it feels special despite being all rather simple.

Balsamic Mushroom Pasta

By | February 6th, 2018|Pasta Recipes, Vegetarian Recipes|

Few flavours go together like balsamic and mushrooms so this super simple mushroom pasta is a pretty safe bet on the flavour front, but it is just fantastic. It does not matter what is happening or how the day has gone it is one of those dishes that requires the cooking skill of a house brick to pull together and always tastes like a million dollars despite costing pennies.

Spicy Szechuan Shrimp Stir Fry

By | February 2nd, 2018|FakeAways, Fish and Seafood Recipes, Spicy Recipes|

Krumpli is littered with quick Friday Fakeaway dinners but this spicy Szechuan shrimp stir fry is probably the quickest of all… I have it down as 15 minutes prep and 5 minutes cooking but that is allowing for a sip of wine or beer as the prep work happens and a chat as you go, if your concentrating you can prep in 5-10 minutes which puts this recipe at 10-15 minutes from fridge/cupboard to table and it is all from scratch

Moroccan Beef Meatballs with Bulgar Wheat and Chickpeas

By | January 30th, 2018|Beef & Lamb Recipes, Spicy Recipes|

These Moroccan influenced beef meatballs join an ever growing list of meatballs from around the world, meatballs are just magic, a wonderfully economic way of stretching meat a little further and providing a big hearty meal at a bargain basement cost.
