Thai Spiced Stargazer

This is fantastic meal, the stargazer is a fantastically flavourfiul fish. If you can't find it you could substitute it for monkfish.

Jamie’s South East Asian Chicken Curry with Fluffy Rice

Now I am slightly biased, I would eat anything Jamie Oliver put in front of me. I have nearly all his books, dvd's, eaten in his restaurants and had a cooking classes at his recipease store. I can honestly say he is the reason I started cooking and growing. His Jamie at home book is [...]
