I know, I don't do one for ages then I do two in the same week *laughs* Clearly cunning boyfriend and I were feeling adventurous ;)
The latest recipe was paprika chicken with a little gem, corn and cucumber salad:
Looks good, doesn't it?
It was good, but not quite right. The marinade for the chicken contained lemon juice, garlic, paprika and oil, but for some reason I could barely taste the paprika. Next time, I would definitely include more!
The way the recipe cooks the corn was also slightly bizarre - you griddle corn cobs until they caramelise. Which is great, but didn't really cook the corn very well (according to the recipe, this stage only takes 5 minutes). Boyfriend came up with the plan to give them a quick blast in the microwave to make sure they were cooked, before griddling, which worked much better.
The other thing that was slightly wrong with this dish - it was so difficult to eat *laughs* Trying to get a bit of everything at once was a real challenge. So, although it was very tasty, it wasn't quite the success I'd have liked ;)
