The sauce for this dish can be made up in advance and left in the fridge hence why I add extra oil to this than usual as it preserves the sauce allowing you to use it for up to 5 days in the fridge. It’s a simple recipe but goes so well with seafood, chicken and fish and yes the quantity of garlic is correct!
A mouth watering delicacy of Mauritius. Typically made in advance and left to allow the flavours to work together, this is usually served with a big crusty baguette or you can eat it with Roti or Puri. Whatever you decide to eat it with you’ll always be happy to know your fridge has this for any rainy day fridge raid!

Mauritius owes it’s culinary traditions to history of passing trade including Arabs, Dutch, Portuguese, French and Indian. The island tempered native Indian curries making them milder and lighter in flavour. This dish is very evocative for me with the caramel scent of aubergine frying, clanking of pots and pans, the fragrance of mums kitchen.

Delicious twist on a classic fish burger served with a sharp and tangy tzaziki with a hum of beautiful spice running through all of it.
I was brought up eating quite a bit of tinned fish, mainly because fresh fish was so expensive when I was a child. Because of this, I’m partial to tinned sardines and pilchards. I know it sounds a bit retro but you get an intense flavour from tinned sardines, which works perfectly with the piquancy of the chilli. You could make a vegetarian version of this dish using a mix of beans instead of the sardines.
