Easy Recipes For Success

Having been a professionel chef for eight or so years, I have had many requests from my friends, mainly guys on what to cook for their partners on special occasions. Usually they need something really easy to prepare that is affordable and will be a palatal orgasm on a plate. Hopefully they have done their homework and found out what their partners, likes and dislikes are, making my task a little easier to accomplish. My record is 100% happy customers so far, using fool proof tried and tested recipes that I have used and perfected from my own and other chefs experiences. Here is a quick and easy seafood recipe that really works well and has never let me down. Just make sure your partner has no shellfish allergies with this one, could be an end of a relationship, you have been warned.

Crispy Prawns and Scallops in a Red Curry Sauce.
Serves 2

250 g raw prawns, deveined and peeled, leaving the tail on
125 g cleaned scallops
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1 tablespoon oil
1 medium ripe tomato, diced
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest as garnish

Combine prawns, scallops, oil and red curry paste in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about half an hour. Heat a heavy-based frying pan until it is very hot. Toss the seafood in the curry paste to coat it well and fry in small batches, tossing frequently until done. Dont overcook seafood or it will become tough. Remove pan from heat and add the seafood, lemon juice and diced tomatoes and stir well. Serve with steamed rice and a few lemon wedges and a nice glass of crisp white wine. Finish the meal with a chocolate dessert the way to a womans heart. Awesome food, stunning evening and all done by you, can only be a win win outcome. Enjoy.
