I had a lamb steak in the freezer, but I didn’t want to grill it because it was so small! So instead, I thinly sliced it and made a lamb shawarma with couscous.

Aesthetically, it wasn’t the most beautiful meal I had ever made but that first mouthful. My flatmates were asking me why my eyes lit up. The flavours were so well balanced, I was patting myself on the back.

I don’t want to blow my own trumpet, but seriously, if you want to try this, I’ll give you the recipe! I have one more lamb steak in the freezer, woop woop!

Fusion food. Never complain.

Lemon rice and salmon sambal. What? Lemon rice is literally that, with dried red chillies and spices. It’s a rice dish from South India. Salmon sambal is not typically made in Malaysia (where the dish is from); you find chicken and shrimp usually. Salmon sambal is a family recipe, made with tomatoes, onions and a particular type of red chilli, and I adore it! No one ever mixes the two together…except me. Student life – students never complain! And why would I complain when I have this deliciousness in front of me?
