Recipe: Garlic Herb Mussels

I love mussels because they pack loads of protein, iron, Vitamin B12 and iodine. Important ingredients that aid is tissue recovery for athletes. And do you know that 15 pieces of mussels has the same amount of protein as a serving of steak! This dish of Garlic Herb Mussels is easy. One can either cook it over the stove or like me, I prefer to use the oven for minimal cleaning and so that I can busy myself with something else while the dish cooks.

Recipe: Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder

While I am accustomed to cooking lamb cutlets and even lamb stews, honestly I as a bit stumped with the square cut shoulder in my hands. Husbter wasn't at home and I wasn't ready to start slicing and cutting meat (he does it most times). It doesn't help that it would be the first time that I am cooking lamb shoulder too. A little of running through my recipe collection of books and subscriptions...Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder it would be.

We love Okonomi in Publika because we get to choose the ingredients that go into our sushi or salad bowl. Well, for lazy to think days, we discovered that the ala carte menu is not just a good idea but is pretty delish as well.

Recipe: Pasta, Basil and Hake

No fancy name to this dish. But this is one of my favourite dishes to whip out. It is hearty and goes well to fuel my long run days. Pasta for carbs, basil and spinach for flavour, vitamins and fibre. Fish and in this case New Zealand hake for a good source of healthy, low fat protein.
