OK, before we start you must:

  • Clear clutter away
  • Wash your hands
  • Rinse and clean the fruit and vegetables

THe Expo Chef recipes consist of three easy steps to cooking which are:

  • Preparation
  • Cooking method
  • Plating up the food

There are no exact measurements as Mark's recipes are intended only as guidelines . . . but please eat everything in moderation and remember those all important portion sizes!

Mark wants you to experiment with flavours using herbs and spices. Remember cooking is not an exact science so give this recipe a go and good luck!

Remember to try to vary your diet! Just because you like a recipe does not mean you should carry on eating that dish alone! Challenge your body with new meals and new ingredients . . . plus it is fun to experiment with food!

Remember: use herbs to season instead of salt!
