This recipe is a take on my Mother’s authentic Jamaican recipe. She would add a little bit of this and that with a few chilli peppers along the way (which I haven’t)!! What I love about it is the broth is warming, delicious and full of flavour, surrounded by soft melt in the mouth meat and chunks of gorgeous veggies. This is a winter warmer for sure.
Although small, these koftas pack a giant flavour. The sweetness of the garlic infused in the milk with the bread along with my lamb spice mash up, allow the flavour to carry throughout the mixture, keeping them moist, juicy and totally authentic. Also, you can never add enough fresh herbs, the more the merrier my peeps!
This is a wonderful recipe, light on the carbs and heavy on the sticky, aromatic, tomato flavour. I picked the idea up from a little tapas bar, I used to visit in Camden Town, after a heavy day of market shopping, back in old Blighty, and as usual just made a version of my own.
Oh lordy, this is such an incredible fish and seafood marinade. Lots of personality and you can adapt and use your favourite herbs.
I call it a ‘Mash Up’ because you can use it as a dressing for salads, roasted potatoes or drizzled through warm cous cous. I dollop a spoonful on lamb chops just off the BBQ or in the winter a puddle my soup!
THIS. IS. SUBLIME! Quick, stunning, and an epic sensory journey. Serve it with my Mint Salsa Verde and Moroccan Cous Cous (Check out ‘A Bit on the Side’) for an easy yet mind-blowingly tasty meal. This is perfect for entertaining – outdoors or in… You can quickly fling it all together, whack it (artfully) onto a platter and Ta-Da! Flavour Bomb!… Do NOT expect leftovers.

It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me, that my passion is food, the big astonishment however, if God came down right now and said, ‘ok Jax, choose a passion for the rest of your life’, I would drop food like a hot rock and pick music. Vinyl, CD’s and of course back…
Is Jax your real name?: No my full name is Jacqueline, Sylvia Margaret Hamilton (I know right) just call me Jax Where are you from?: Stratford, East London (under the sound of the bow bells), which makes me a 100% cockney. However my parents are from Jamaica and I’m now a Kiwi Citizen – phew!…
