I am seeing more and more, good dishes being ruined by the addition of huge amounts of sauces, herbs and spices.  Well in accordance with my taste buds anyway.

The simplicity of crispy skin salmon cooked on a hot plate with just a knob of butter to prevent sticking to me is heaven

An interesting aside on salt, is the slab of Himalayan rock salt my daughter gave me a couple of Christmas's ago. Cut 14"x9"x2" thick it is a solid chunk of pink rock salt from some mountain in the Himalaya's. Heated to "very hot" on a gas stove, peeled green king prawns grilled on this never tasted better. There is a delicate salt infusion and other than a touch of pepper nothing more is needed. The same goes for steak, a nice rib fillet caramelises beautifully with that same subtle background salt.

There is more work involved than a basic fry pan though, and its size restricts cooking for more than 2 people.

Over time we have also cut right back on the amount of salt in/on food. We do use much more garlic, chilli and fresh herbs in cooking though, (almost OD level Cheesy) which I think has kept us cold/flu free for a good number of years now.

When do you expect to do the big lap Aart?  We don't expect we will ever just head off and keep going all the way around but you never know.


Likely after I've done all the eastern states.

Every time we go to Yamba when the blackfish and mullet are running the fish shop attached to the Fishermans Co-Op has a special on for local fish and chips at $5 and you get to choose between mullet and blackfish.

I can live on both of them but generally get the blackfish as they give you two pieces. I find them deep fried in the batter to be fantastic.

I haven't actually caught one for years. The last time was at Iluka and caught one that was about 6 inches long. Grin
