Grilled Salted Tilapia Recipe

Salted Tilapia Fish recipe

This recipe got me all excited as I watched Marc Wiens Thailand video on YouTube. I had to try this recipe with my own twist as it screamed flavour to me.
The flavour profile of this recipe includes the 5 basic taste principles of Sweet, Sour, Bitterness, Umami and Saltiness.

The Salt bathed Tilapia makes for a crispy and non sticking fish when barbecued hence the Fish keeps it shape. The sweet, sour and tangy sauce that accompanies the Grilled Salted Tilapia makes for a must try dish.

The recipe is tailored to my personal preference, however you can add a teaspoonful of Fish sauce or a pinch of fermented locust beans knows as Dawadawa for that extra Umami flavour. Be adventurous and treat yourself to this incredible Grilled Tilapia recipe.

 

INGREDIENTS

3 large gutted and descaled whole Tilapias

3 tablespoonful of Pink Himalayan Salt

8 Lemongrass Stalks

Can we call this Jollof? Ma Tricky Wo Jollof Rice Recipe

Controversy alert!

In a world where lockdown is the new normal, ones mental health can suffer; however creating a little controversy here and there does help especially in the Kitchen or?

Okay! Hear me out… hmm…so Jollof Rice to the eye must have that distinctive  deep Orange colour, be well spiced and have a smoky undertone flavour. Tackling the ‘colour’ issue technically means this Smoked Shrimp Red Rice recipe passes as Jollof Rice or?

Traditionally, one uses Tomatoes and Tomato Purée to achieve the distinctive deep Orange colour, however this dish omits them as the colour is derived from the Smoked Shrimps.

Now that I’ve made my argument, I would like to know, is it in the process of cooking Jollof Rice and or sticking to the sacred ingredients that qualifies it as Jollof Rice?

Leave your comments below and let’s have this discussion.

 

INGREDIENTS

200g of Smoked Shrimps, Prawns or Crayfish

2 large Banana Shallots or any Onion of your choosing

4 tablespoonful of your preferred oil for frying

1 teaspoonful of Chilli flakes

1 tablespoonful of Cumin seeds

6 Black Peppercorns

5 Sichuan Peppercorns /1 teaspoon of Aniseed / 2 Star Anise

2 tablespoonfuls of a Ginger, Garlic, Onion and Aniseed blend
