Now I love tandoori, I love fish and I love tacos. So that means I triple love this dish.

So when Pataks sent me the tandoori paste and the yummy sides I somehow brainstormed my way to Tandoori Fish Tacos. The flavours of the spices and fresh white fish go perfectly together. A delicious twist on the usual tandoori chicken.

It is pretty easy to make and oh my, the flavours. It was like a party in my mouth and when I was finished I wished I had made more. So take note people, maybe double the recipe 😉

These tacos and sides are a beautiful, tasty combination of carbs, protein and fat. A great combo go all the macronutrients. Fresh crunchy vegetables, melt in your mouth spiced fish, soft yet hearty wraps. And the sauces are not to be forgotten. I ate about half the pappadums and eggplant pickle dip whilst I was cooking. Just pure yum. I think i’ll be making that dip for a lot of different meals.

Now these homemade wraps are something that I make all the time. Hardly any ingredients unlike some in the supermarket so they are a lot better for you, anddddd you can bet they are a lot of cheaper. So I usually make a big batch of them and freeze them and voila, you have the base of many great dishes ready to go.

The best thing is all these sauces can be found in your local supermarket so you don’t have to go hunting like crazy to recreate these tacos. They are definitely the perfect weekend lunch, particularly sitting outside with an icy drink. So hop to it and pick up some snapper and sauces on your home, it’s taco time!

A huge thank you to Pataks for supplying me with these goodies which inspired this dish! #pataksaustralia

In other news, it is now 3 weeks until we move into our new home. Literally buzzing with excitement to be in there. I can cook in my miele appliances, decorate my study and just breathe a sigh of relief that we finally made it. Actually, I think there will be tears of joy, a sigh of relief definitely doesn’t cut it.

Oh the dishes that are going to be created in that kitchen! I spend a large proportion of my day dreaming about cooking in there. Until then, love and nourishment xx

 


You all know how I love my bowl foods. Particularly those involving japanesey ingredients ❤❤❤ So when Australian Organic gave me some goodies to play with and I saw these delicious fresh black fungi mushrooms at the farmers markets I knew some kind of mushroom noodle bowl had to be made. If you can’t get your hands on these just use shiitake or oyster – all mushrooms are amazingggg. I’ve been making my own bone broth lately,  I started doing it for Blaze when he was sick but know am continuing to make it for us because its so darn tasty, easy and nutritious. Particularly for my gut ! I love using it instead of normal stocks in soups and risottos.

Hi guys ❤ It’s been way, way too long since I’ve been able to have the time to write a blog post. It feels so nice and natural to be back at it again. Uni, moving/building house, ear operations etc have all taken over my life but if you have been following me on Instagram and Facebook you’ll know that I’ve still be cooking and creating.

Since it’s been a while here’s a little update on what Paradise Pantry and I have been up to ⇨

◇ Goodness Me Box recipe here (more to come)

◇ Made it through my first semester of third year Nutrition and Dietetics (by some miracle)

◇ Most of you will know from my social media posts but we had to say goodbye to our beautiful dog Blaze, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which seemed to be getting better but in the end his little body just couldn’t cope :( we miss him terribly.

◇ Demolishing our block of land next week to build a duplex (surreal)

◇ Have become addicted to Calmer Sutra Tea’s new super spiced cacao and Outlander (show on Netflix, not the car)

◇ Cannot get enough of Earth and Baker’s amazing work, their bowl is used below

This Pad Thai has got to be one of my favourite meals, which is a pretty big thing for me to say because god knows I’ve made a lot of meals. I just add in whatever veggies I have on hand but my non negotiable’s are that they are crisp, fresh, and always covered in the satay sauce. You’ll regret it if you don’t make enough sauce, trust me.
