    Fish Sauce Teriyaki Chicken

    To make Teriyaki Sauce, I use Sugar, Soy Sauce and Mirin. One day I used Fish Sauce instead of Soy Sauce. I though Garlic and Citrus Juice were definitely needed. I added Chilli as well. Then my Teriyaki Chicken ended up as something familiar. It’s very different from Japanese Teriyaki, but it is absolutely delicious. …

    I make this Garlic Butter to make Garlic Bread. I spread it on just one side of crusty bread slices, then toast them in my mini toaster oven.

    Scrumptious Chilli Paste

    This paste is delicious with freshly cooked Rice, cold or hot Tofu, or as a topping for Noodles. You can add it to your dipping sauces, or enjoy with fresh Vegetables such as Carrot or Cucumber.

    Quick & Cheesy Broccoli Potato

    I saw a lovely looking dish of roasted Broccoli and Potatoes that were mixed with Garlic and Anchovy. Sounds really good, doesn’t it? But, I didn’t want to use the oven. If it is just Broccoli, I would cook it in a frying pan. But I needed to cook Potatoes as well. So, I boiled …

I like adding more flavours to Ponzu, but they are all optional. You can use Ponzu only. Makes 3 to 4 Servings Ingredients 200g Shiitake MushroomsOil …
