It's the beginning of Lunar New Year! A time to celebrate with family and friends and it always includes tonnes and tonnes of delicious food! Liv from Head Office has shared one of her favourite dishes to cook over this time of year - Ginger and Sesame Fried Chicken.
Serves 4 as an entree.
500g Organic Chicken Wingettes
2 tbsp Chinese Cooking Wine
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1inch Ginger, minced with microplane
1 White Pepper
1 tsp Sugar
4 tbsp Corn Flour or Potato Starch
1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
1 big pinch of Salt
Mix the Chinese cooking wine, soy, ginger, white pepper and sugar in a container.
Add chicken and let it marinade for 2 hours minimum or overnight if time permits.
Add corn flour, sesame seeds and salt, place lid on container and shake.
You can always add more flour if you need to get it to a thick, batter consistency.
Heat a large saucepan with oil over medium-high heat. You want to have enough oil for most of the chicken to be submerged.
Carefully lower chicken into oil and cook until golden, usually around 2-3 minutes per side.
Drain in paper towel and serve with fresh chilli and chopped spring onion.
This stew is a great example of showcasing how much flavour our newly released Fresh Chorizo can bring to a dish! It's paired with bone-in chicken thighs, where the skin has been seasoned and the fat is nicely rendered and crispy, tomatoes, oregano and olives. Another bonus, is that it's made in one pot for an easy clean up and can be served with rice or salad and fresh bread.
Our healthier take on Cacio Pepe, with the added goodness of greens! The brocollinni is taken to the point of being slightly charred, so it adds a real savoury flavour along with great texture to the dish. It's a dish that can be whipped up using mostly pantry staples and it served up in less than half an hour! You can sub the brocollinni out for any kind of veg and you could also add in some dry cured bacon for a little more richness.
In the spirit of spring, we've used our Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder for some bloody tasty tacos! We prepared it with slices of orange, onion, dried morita chilli and cumin and then sandwiched it in a corn tortilla with a tomatillo salsa and cabbage. Using our slow cooked lamb shoulder has made what is usually a 3-4 hour cook, into a quick and easy dinner that you can even cook mid week!
