Growing up fish was something we had but I did not enjoy. I am not sure exactly when this started but for the longest time I did not have the skin of the fish, then I stopped having whole fish I think for almost 10 years. I just for some reason thought it was grossish.

Then 3 years ago I went to visit my girl Mona in Kampala. On the day I was living we passed Tuskys to get some gonja crisps (plantain). Mona bought some fish and they were all packed together. Well, you can guess what happened, I found my self with fish in Nairobi. I obviously could not throw it out after it traveled all the way now could I?

Hubby was super happy about it, that was the day we started calling it something close to the name above. The actual name we call it is PG LOL but the point is it it pleases men.

Happy Cooking

Add the spices, let it cook for 5 mins then add the coconut milk. bring this to a simmer then add the dhania. I would typically then add in my fish till it warmed through then serve

Fried rice is one of those dishes that are really easy to make and are a really great way of using up left over rice and using up veggies before they go bad. I use an old recipe for the left over rice. The sweet and spicy coconut rice is quite a win. Find the recipe here.

The love for lamb chops in the Kihara house hold is super-normal. I think if we could we would have it maybe 3 or 4 times a week and feel zero about it. We always have it with potatoes and salad and sometimes when we are on a health journey we skip the salad and have just potatoes. Hahahaha
