moreton bay bugs

Last week the very lovely people at Kirribilli Seafoods gave me two Moreton Bay Bugs caught that morning off Queensland’s coast. They were huge and freckled from the harsh Northern sun. The meat is found only in the tail. The succulent meat is sweet but bold and best cooked in the shell, where a lot of its flavour is held. I asked for the bugs to be halved lengthways as the shell is very rough and difficult to do at home.

home-made red fish curry (a guest post by mike holm)

When it comes to curries, these days most people can whip up a Thai green curry or something alike. Usually it involves a store bought paste, coconut cream, protein and some veg…easy! It might taste ok, but have you ever made the curry paste yourself? If you’ve done this before then I’m sure you understand the explosion of taste and aroma that is created and just how far above (nutritionally and tastefully) that the home made paste is.

My mum and I used to make this paste together, freeze it in portions and whip it out for an easy home cooked meal that is free from gross store bought vegetable oils and the insane amounts of sodium. The recipe involves making the paste, and then the curry. It may seem like a huge list of ingredients, but you can make it once and use it for months. The final product is nourishing, stimulating, health protective and all round satisfying.
