Coconut Cream Sauce

I wanted to make Pete Evans Paleo lime coconut sauce but didn’t have the ingredients so here is what I made with what was left before grocery shopping day. It was just as good as the other one I normally make.  It goes well with fish and salmon that has been steamed and vegetables.

Using up pesto. See previous post under sauces for pesto recipe)

Dish made by hubby with 2 cups wholemeal spaghetti cooked in saucepan with boiling water while chicken cooked. 2 steamed chicken breasts cooked in microwave steamer (11minutes from frozen or 6minutes if unfrozen). When spaghetti is cooked (taste) then drain and mix through the 1/2  jar of pesto. Serve with the chicken.

Sauces: Homemade

As I cleared out fridge of any bought sauces I wanted to make some of my own I haven’t tried before. I also made another batch of the mint sauce I made last year.

My Creamy Fennel Mustard Recipe is Soo Good! Great for BBQ  with Sausages/Steak/Chicken or even Fish or when you want a salad dressing that’s not the normal mayo. No cream involved. Definitely making this one again.

My Basil Pesto Recipe worked out rather well. I don’t add parmesan to mine but a lot of recipes for basil pesto do include it so it is up to the individual taste. I personally don’t think it needs it.

The Chimichurri Recipe from Coles free magazine. Had this one with Steak. Neither hubby nor I liked it.

My Mint Sauce Recipe will be a favourite.

Steak and seafood

I wanted to do steak and chimichurri sauce i made. I didn’t really like the sauce but when i team it with the rest of the plate it was ok. This plate was 2 serves for me. I could only eat half and kept rest for another meal. (The chips fish cocktail and sea shanty with aioli for me is 1 meal in itself). Hubby ate the lot in one go. The Chimichurri sauce was a recipe from a free magazine I picked up at the supermarket.
