Grill Roasted Hakurei Turnip and Radish ...

  Got Your Greens is the man to see at the White Rock true farmers market about some serious greens. I was shown a very tasty white Hakurei Turnip. Also know as White Globe or Tokyo turnips. These are not your run-of-the-mill average turnip! I just love this turnips raw – sweet and mild crunchy texture. Great cooked lightly in stir-fries and soups. They are not spicy and bitter like the standard purple top turnips. In fact after your first bite you will start adding Hakurei Turnips raw on a salad plate and your vegan fibre diet! The greens are also very much edible,...

Garlic Spotted Prawns with Zara’s Pasta

Garlic Spotted Prawns with Zara’s ...

The spotted prawns are at the markets and the cold water first catch are usually extra plump and delicious. The deeper and colder the water the tastier the prawns. I love making a simple garlic butter using capers, garlic, and parsley with slat and cracked pepper. After I clean and trap the prawns I give them a quick bath in a sea salt water brine. This sets them up and makes a nice crisp texture when cooking in butter. I add a touch of vermouth to some chopped tomato, garlic and parsley with a few heaping tablespoons of garlic butter. Some fresh al’dente pasta hand...
