What We're Cooking This Week

Five dishes for you to add to this week's meal plan.


It's the start of a new week which means it's time to figure out what to cook.

Our food cravings have inspired this list, based on recipes we've been posting on the site lately. The five dishes below are ones we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think!

1. Crab Cakes With Radish And Cucumber Relish

Hugo Arnold's recipes are always great, but we're particularly obsessed with these crab cakes right now. They're so easy to whip up and pack a great punch of flavour, so we know we'll probably make these crab cakes a few times this week. If you like the relish as much as we do, make a double batch and save some to use throughout the week. Get the recipe here.

5. Spicy Chicken Tempura

We included this recipe in our back to basics with chicken breast column last week and we have been thinking about it ever since. The crispy, crunchy batter combined with a delicious spicy coating makes for an extremely moreish dish. Be prepared to make this recipe frequently, because once you try it, you'll keep craving it.
