      datto54 wrote:

      so the recipe for the tuna back is dead simple

      1 whole brocolli tree chopped
      half a cauli (or more if ya want) chopped
      1 small onion sliced
      1 zuccini chopped
      1 big tin of tuna (250g i think)
      tub of cream and cup of cheese grated.

      in big over proof tray chuck in all vegies and drained tuna and mix around, pour over cream, sprinkle on cheese in the oven for about 20 mins (till cheese is going slightly brown on top) whip outta the oven, onto a plate and eat! yum yum

      and it freezes really well.

      I think im going to up the amount of tuna in it cos its a really big bake and i think i want more protien in there. can someone do the carb count for it? i get about 6 meals outta it.

      I am sorry it has been a few years since i made this so i am relying on memory for the recipe ingredients, therefore the ingredients are very adaptable.

      It was a lot of fun and i imagine around a camp fire, over coals, or on the b.b.q like i did with friends around it would be great.

      three prawns
      couple of slices of garlic
      salt, pepper
      chopped shallots
      knob of butter
      squeeze of lemon

      Place all the ingredients in the very centre and in a upwards pile on some aluminium foil that is about 40cm. long.
      Fold the foil in half and seal the top edge by folding it over only 2cm. Repeat that on both sides but before you seal the last side remove as much air as possible.
      It should now look a bit like a flat pillow above the prepared prawns at the base of it.
      Fold the top again tightly followed by folding each side again and then fold each side once more. Hopefully it will now be about the size of two envelope, with the meal at the base and some empty flat foil above it.

      Place on hot coals and get ready
      Once the butter has melted and all the juices start to boil the steam will quite quickly blow up the pillow like a balloon.
      A lot of fun

      Hopefully i've messaged this in the correct way :)

      Seafood Marinara

      1x 405 g can of woolworths brand italian tomatoes with basil, Garlic and onion.
      Tsp Ginger, fresh, diced
      1xmedium onion, diced
      salt and pepper to taste
      500 g seafood marinara mix, fresh from the deli
      100ml cream, optional (if u want a creamy tomato base, then use this,i find it nice either way)
      spaghetti for the carb eaters
      zucchini noodles for the low carb eaters


      Fry ginger and Onion in a lge frypan untill onion is transparent, add tin tomato's and simmer for 5 0r 10 mins.Put spaghetti on to boil now, or if using zucchini noodles, saute them in a separate frypan and keep warm. Add seafood and simmer untill cooked, about 15 mins. Add the cream now if using it and heat thru.Put spaghetti/ zucchini in bowl's and top with marinara/sauce mix. serve topped with parmesan cheese..

      I also sometimes add bok choy to mine at the cream stage.

      serves 4, quite lge serves.

      I could be wrong but in my calculations this meal is around 4g's carb and 2.20g's sugar per serve

    • Re: Seafood recipes

      Just a quick simple recipie I like to use:

      Garlic, Corriander & Chili Prawns.

      In a mortar and pestal mix in the following to a paste

      2 cloves of garlic
      1/2 cup fresh corriander
      1 mild chili

      I like to put this mix in with the prawns half way through cooking so it doesnt burn. Alternativly I'm sure you could use other meats - chicken ect.
    • Salmon-bake

      I've found a whole lot of yummy recipes involving meat, but not so many recipes with fish. Of course, fish in itself is perfect low carb food, just bake a piece of salmon in the oven and have it with an interesting salad and some dressing. But being Scandinavian and having grown up with all kinds of fish-recipes, I was longing to make something more exciting with fish.

      Then I found this gratinated salmon recipe, from the wonderful blog
      I've translated it to English:

      500 grams of salmon
      1/2 cauliflower
      1/2 capsicum
      1 onion
      1 tub of Creme Fraiche
      1 packet of chopped, frozen spinach
      Grated cheese
      Salt, pepper and dill

      Dice salmon and put in a heat-resistant tray. Add cauliflower- buquettes, chopped capsicum and chopped onion. Sprinkle on some salt, pepper and dill. Mix ingredients together. Then make a dressing of the Creme Fraiche and the spinach (defrosted), and spread it on top of the fish-and vegetable mix. Lastly, add a generous sprinkling of grated cheese on top.

      Bake in the oven on 200 degrees Celsius for approximately 25 minutes.

      Easy as that! This recipe is enough to make 3 dinners for me and my partner.
