I’m a real fan of easy meals. Well, thats not entirely true.

I’m a fan of easy meals when I’m cooking them and don’t really mind how complex they are when others are cooking. I think my wife can back me up on that one. The easiest and the hardest meals to prepare are all based on what you feel ‘hard’ is when putting your culinary skills to work.


Personally, I love 3 ingredients with a lot of spices. I asked one of my star students (@chloejadefitness) to put together another nail biter of a meal to share with you all. I wanted something with a little zing and a heap of flavour.


Again, she has delivered.
