5 Minute EveryDay Fresh Bread

Five Minute every day Bread

6.5 cups of Plain/Bread flour
1.5 Salt
1.5 Yeast
3 cups of lukewarm water

Mix all above in a bit tub.

Mixture should be 'soggy' if not add abit more water, when the mixture is more wet and too moist to knead the bread come outs with more or bigger holes, which is what I like.

Let to rest for atleast 2 hours then either put in fridge and take out when necessary.

Cut a piece off and shape, rest for 45 mins. then bake in preheated oven at 225.
Remember to pour cold water in tray below for that steamy effect for crunchy crust.

Add whatever nuts, olives, herbs you feel.

Steak and Kidney Pie

Tuna Egg Mayo Salad

Salad with Pomegranite

Chinese Fish Broth

 Salmon Broth

Made from todays fish stock, definitely makes a difference - full on flavour!

Vermicelli noodles (glass noodles)  used here.
Raw salmon underneath everything, 'cooked' in hot broth  to juicy perfection.
Squeeze one full lemon together with the fiery chilis just before serving.  Bliss.

Fish Sauce
Soya Sauce
Chili (op)
Ginger fresh
Squeeze of Lemon
Sesame oil
Snow peas
Spring onions
Rice noodles

1. Add Noodles, veggies such as carrots, onions, fennel, cabbage, courgettes, spinach and any root vegetable is generally good.
2. Add sweet peas cook for half a minute.
Sweet peas should be still crunchy.
3. Pour hot broth on to raw salmon already in the soup bowl. The heat of the broth will "cook" the fresh fish just right,  juicy and tender.
4. Garnish with chopped green onions, coriander leaves,  black/white sesame seeds, sesame oil, soya.

Entrecote Broth

Same as above just add steak instead of Salmon
