My latest recipe.
Bay tree Kebabs with Fennel and orange salad with orange and Argan oil dressing.
I have been working in the garden all week in this rather beautiful weather.I am fairly new to gardening with a leaning towards edible things..and pretty things I suppose.I had to hack all sorts of adventurous plants and trees back after a year of ignoring them and found myself in the privileged position of a huge amount of Bay.
I thought they would make beautiful kebab stalks and set to making my own Kofte recipe.
It is a highly spiced recipe with an entire bulb of garlic,two large chillies and two teaspoons of smoked paprika.I chopped a large handful of rosemary into it too for an extra savoury flavour.I love the combination of garlic,chilli,rosemary and paprika.
The Argan oil is a very generous gift recently given to us by great friends.The oil tastes so delicious and has the most amazing story behind it.Something to do with Morocco...goats climbing tree's...goats eating nuts...then pooing them.....and the somebody harvests the highly prized nutty poo and gives it a clean and somehow makes this rather spectacular oil.When I learn more about this blog mollarky I will post up a picture of the goats at work.
I made the same dish for my son without the spices and he said ...'Mmmmm Meat Mummy...'He loves meat.
Yusuf and I will definatly trying this recipe out at the Supper Club this summer.With a garlicky minty yogurt and some Vietnamese hot chilli sauce.Yum!
