Food Sorcery Tips

  1. It would be great to serve this dish with a side of homemade tumeric sauerkraut or pakchoi. You can look up our sauerkraut recipe.

  2. Make extra fishcakes & paste and freeze for later as a quick meal.

  3. As an alternative to chicken, swap for cooked and shredded turkey or salmon.

  4. Take a look at our recipe for Cashew Crusted Cod with Squash Puree

Jan Cron – Kitchen Maverick

Has spent a lifetime learning the best cooking techniques and perfecting flavours, if 70% of being healthy is what you eat and 30% exercise then we need to concentrate on getting the best balance of tasty food into our bodies. He’s gone back to school to learn about nutrition, to research relevant, irrelevant and utterly absurd diets, so you don’t have to.
