Scallop & Sesame Noodles to make your heart sing…

Hands up anyone out there whose eating habits go like this:

1.. Try something new.

2. Think ‘well hey now, that is freakin’ delicious!’

3. Make it again.

4. And again.

5. Confess to yourself that fully fledged addiction has set in.

6. Realise that you’ve got to the point where you’ve had it six times in three days, there are crumbs of it on your clothes, your sofa and every surface of your kitchen and you actually can no longer bear to even think about it let alone spoon it into your mouth yet again…FYI kids, I’m still at stage ‘6’ of this process with Lorraine Pascale’s Glam Macaroni Cheese; made for four and eaten by two?

A divinely delicious & healthy recreation of West Coast salmon rice bowls in North London…

One of my lasting memories of San Francisco – apart from the glorious weather, friendly people & stunning locale – is the amazing food. Whatever you look for, I guarantee you will find and it won’t surprise anyone who’s been there to hear you praise to the high heavens the generous breakfasts, fresh produce or the Michelin hotspots; as cities for foodies go, San Francisco is up there with the best.

Rice bowls have been around on the culinary scene and growing in popularity for some time now but it wasn’t until our Pacific Catch experience that we got to experience them for the first time. Steeped for the most part in and around Asian cuisine, they’re the perfect dinner for so many reasons – they’re simple to prepare & require no hard-to-say-and-even-harder-to-find ingredients that cost the earth; they can be made just as easily for one person as for 4, 6 or 10; there are no hard and fast rules about what goes in them so even the pickiest of eaters among your clan can be appeased including vegetarians, vegans or meat lovers…see? Nothing not to like, love and adore and if you’re fed up of dull, uninspiring salads that leave you hungry again before the last forkful is forced down and you’re after a healthy option that will leave you full and happy, let’s get on with introducing the rice bowl to your cooking repertoire…
