After almost 10 years of dating and marriage, the day I’ve been waiting for all these years had finally come. Scotch returned home from a day of fishing with an ACTUAL FISH! And not just one but TWO! Not that he doesn’t normally succeed in catching fish when he’s out fishing but he is in […]

As part of my Cooking Local project to learn more about Emirati food and culture, I am attempting to cook through Celia Ann Brock-Al Ansari’s The Complete UAE Cookbook. I have completed 8 recipes so far out of…oh…73. Crikey, at the rate I’m going, I might be old and withered before I’m finished. Out of the […]

The cooking method of this dish reminds me of a recipe I previously posted: Fish-in-a-Bag – an Easy Peasy Recipe! It is my favorite way of cooking fish as it involves almost no clean up and the fish comes out perfectly cooked every time. For the Emirati version of fish-in-a-bag, I used tilapia bought from […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my Arabic/Emirati cooking attempts. The last recipe (lamb fried with spices / la-ham nashif) was posted back in September 2008.

My mom makes a killer Vietnamese Sweet and Sour Soup. It’s pretty much restaurant quality. Actually, it’s better than restaurant quality. She gave me the recipe a few years a go and I like to make it every once in a while because it’s mm-mm good. Scotch is not a big soup person so he […]

Easy-Peasy Recipe: Fish in a Bag!

fish in a bag

One of my favorite easy-peasy meals is Fish-in-a-Bag. I fell in love with this method from the first time I saw Jamie Oliver prepare it on his TV show, The Naked Chef. And just as Jamie suggested, if I couldn’t be home to prepare dinner, I would prepare a fish-in-a-bag ahead of time for Scotch […]
