Attempting to re-use some of my old recipe books


I am making a conscious effort to use the numerous cookbooks I have in my possession.  I find that I tend to rely on just a few and I was going to do a cull of my books when I thought I really should go through them and pick out some recipes to try before I decide whether or not to pass them on.

What I have ended up doing is hanging on to all of the books and making sure that I take a recipe from a different cookbook each time I am looking for a recipe and that is how I ended up making this particular dish.

The recipe is taken from Everyday by Bill Granger.This book was published in 2006.  My how the time flies.  I used to use this book frequently but like all cookbooks it has been superceded by other books and has languished on my bookshelf without being used for some time.

The recipe I used was Prawn Salad with coconut dressing.  How I ended up using this recipe was my search for a recipe which would use two bunches of asparagus.

Such an easy recipe and it was delicious.

      1. And I think that could partly be because tastes and preference change as time goes by. So something that didn’t sound or look good a couple years ago, could sound pretty appetizing now!!
