Canadian Smoked Salmon
Pesto, Spinach, Pinenut and Asparagus Rice Salad
I really thought this was going to be difficult and it was soo easy will be making these all the time !!
If anyone would like the recipe here goes !
225g Plain Flour
7g Dried Active Yeast
100ml milk (warm)
100ml water (warm)
pinch o bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
Pour warm milk and water into a large bowl into which the sugar, salt and yeast are dissolved. Stirring continuously with a whisk, slowly add the flour until a smooth batter is obtained. Set the bowl aside in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours or until the ferment has risen and fallen. Dissolve a pinch of bicarbonate of soda into 60g water and stir well into the ferment. Leave for 10 - 15 min.
Place greased hoops if you have them onto a well cleaned hot plate and ladle the crumpet mixture into them . When batter is holed the crumpets should be turned with a palette knife just to colour on the top this makes around 8 crumpets ! Such an easy recipe and yummy toasted with vegemite or marmite and butter on top !

Raw Fish (VERY FRESH) Sliced very finely
Cook the rice according to instructions, it needs to be really sticky, I add sugar and rice vinegar to my rice when cooling.
Shape rice and put your raw fish on top and serve with Soya Sauce and Wasabi !
