Folks, we have just had one of the best days in a long while. We spent the day at Aldeburgh beach, stone skimming, shell structure climbing, beach wall walking, ice cream dropping, mini pond boating, walking, people watching and pebble burying. Same old same old like we normally do, but much more fun when we get that unexpected warm day at the end of September, which means we get to sneak off to the beach.
And we stayed out all day, coming home only to put the girls to bed and collapse in front of the telly. Petty lucky that Freddy had whipped up this healthier pork satay with peanut sauce the night before. So all we had to do was extend our hand out, pile even more peanut sauce on our rice, lean back, eat and relax. The perfect end to the perfect day.
- 2 cloves garlic crushed
- 2 cm fresh ginger root minced
- 2 tsp hot pepper sauce
- 2-3 tbsp sweet soy sauce
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 400 g (14 oz) lean pork chops cut in 3 cm cubes
- 1 shallot finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 200 ml (0.8 cup) light coconut milk
- 100 g (3.5oz) unsalted peanut butter
- Mix together the garlic, ginger, 1 tsp hot pepper sauce, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and 1 tbsp oil and meat in a large bowl and leave to marinate for 15 mins.
- Preheat the AirFryer to 200°C.
- Put the marinated meat in the basket and slide it into the AirFryer. Set the timer to 12 mins and roast the meat until brown and done. Turn once while roasting.
- In the meantime, make the peanut sauce: heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saucepan and gently sauté the shallot with the remainder of the garlic. Stir in the coriander and fry for a few secs.
- Mix in the coconut milk, peanut butter, 1 tsp hot pepper sauce and 1 tbsp soy sauce, bring to a gentle boil and boil for 5 minutes, while stirring. If necessary, add a little bit of water if the sauce gets too thick. Season to taste with soy sauce and hot pepper sauce.
- Serve the pork satay with some rice or bread and the peanut sauce.
Recipe very slightly adapted from Phillips Airfryer.
Now let me introduce you to my newest kitchen gadget. One that I have wanted for the last 3 years. AKA the Phillips Viva Collection Airfryer. This baby comes with a unique Rapid air technology which means that you can fry, bake, roast and grill the tastiest snacks and meals with less fat than a conventional fryer, using little or no oil! So pretty much an essential gadget for every single foodie who want to eat a much healthier diet.
It also comes with an integrated timer so you can to pre-set cooking times of up to 30 minutes, an auto switch-off function and a fully adjustable temperature control with temperatures of up to 200 degrees. The machine is easy to clean and with less oil used it is super economical for daily use.
One of the things about fryers is that the smell of frying can really infiltrate your house. Not so with the Philips Airfryer as it produces less frying smells than conventional fryers. A plus in my book.
The air fryer is available from major online retailers and has an rrp £180. Why not check it out and see what you think? Oh and it would make the perfect Christmas gift for foodies.
