With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter. You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.
To be honest I can’t really see anything Polynesian in this recipe, but I think the marinade does sound tasty. You get much the same result if you use a casserole dish instead of the oven bag, but the good thing is you don’t have to wash it afterwards.
As this says it’s not a traditional moussaka. Traditional Greek moussaka is made with eggplant and this recipe uses potato in it’s place. I think that using both eggplant and potato would work really well too, but making a traditional mince and tomato base sauce would probably be a lot better than a can of braised steak and onions.
With Mum’s 100th birthday only a couple of months away I’ve started to look for party recipes. I found these microwave recipes which were published by The Sun in March 1986 around the time everyone was buying a microwave, but still not quite sure what to do with it. I’m not sure I’d use my microwave to cook them today though, as I think we’ve now figured out what works and what doesn’t in it.
