Breakfast for Champions

Happy Sunday beautiful people.

I have a pretty busy day ahead of me, so I thought I would fuel up to get me through the morning.

I wanted to show you that you can whip up a delicious breaky with little ingredients and little time.
Breakfast doesn’t have to consist of cereal, oats or fruit..Veggies are just as good 🙂

So here you go, all this was found in my fridge and pantry….

BE CREATIVE

* Some home grown silverbeet
* Some tuna
* Zucchini
* Some carrot
* Sesame seeds
* Some Halloumi
* coconut oil
* Salt and Pepper
* A dash of good quality soy sauce

So basically I just added all this into a pan, fried up my halloumi and filled my belly with some goodness.

There is no real recipe involved, just use what you have and add some love.

Happy Sunday 🙂

Chinchin Inspired Kingfish Sashimi

ESLW_CRACKLES

INGREDIENTS

200g kingfish sashimi (or any other sashimi grade fish).
1 tablespoon coconut cream
1 lime Cut Into segments
2 tablespoons green chilli sauce…this is a mild sauce
3 Thai basil leaves, torn (optional)

METHOD
• Firstly make the green chilli sauce (See below). Set aside.
• Drizzle the coconut cream over the plate. Lay the fish flat on the plate, spreading it out so each piece is only just touching.
• Then place the lime segments on top of each slice, then drizzle the green chilli sauce on top. Serve.
• You may have some sauce left over. You can either freeze in ice-cubes for another day or add some sesame and olive oil to it and use it as a salad dressing or marinade for fish, chicken or pork.

Green chilli sauce

4 green chillies
¼ bunch coriander root. Washed.
2 clove’s garlic. I use roasted, its mild and sweet as opposed to fresh..assertive and pungent…you decide on how you like it best.
½ to 1 tablespoon coconut sugar..to taste
½ cup fresh lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons fish sauce

• Blitz or pound chillies, garlic and coriander root to a fine paste.
Combine with remaining ingredients and a large pinch of salt, ensuring sugar dissolves.
Enjoy!
