    Easy -Chicken

    Breast of chicken placed on center of a piece of foil, add sliced onion, halved mushrooms and shake lemon juice and soy sauce (I prefer light soy ) liberally all over.Garlic if you like it too. Wrap loosley and place on tray in the oven 180% for about 25 min. Unwrap for last 5 mins and add a teaspoon or 2 of coconut milk. When serving you can add some chopped Coriander.

    I have made sushi before. It is simple to prepare the ingredients but is very difficult to shape it look like the ones at Sushi restaurant. Tesco has a good range of sushi ingredients: Japanese rice, Japanese vinegar, Seaweed and a small bamboo mat for wrapping sushi, only about one quid each.

    thats great, i was wondering where i could get them from, the seaweed is pretty expensive on the mail order sites, what do you put in the middle, do you marinate fish or just use it as it is?
    think i might have a google, see if i can find some ideas!!

    I found a Chinese supermarket in Dundee last year. It's brilliant. Has lots of all stuff from the Far East...not just Chinese.
    I find the powdered coconut cream excellent as you just have to add water. Cheaper than using the cans, and easier then using the block. Recommend it highly.
    Hubby who works out in Far East, so is used to eating the food there, was quite pleased with that.....but tells me that my attempt at rengdang/rangdang is nothing like, so will have to work on that one!

    i am in yorkshire and there are no oriental supermarkets near, there are loads of asian ones (mainly pakistani/indian goods) near where i work, they are fantastic for curry ingredients etc
    think i will place a big order on https://www.thai4uk.com most things seem to keep well!
