Bagels anyone?

Well I didn't make the bagels from scratch...too lazy to do that on a Saturday morning. You could make them yourself but I just bought them.

So here is what you need to make a cream cheese and salmon bagel.


Bagels (you can buy them individually or in packs of 4-5)
Cream cheese (I am using garlic and herb flavoured)
Smoked salmon (good quality)


Cut the bagel into half.Toast the two halves in a toaster or on the griddle. Apply cream cheese liberally on both sides.
Place a layer of the smoked salmon on one of the sides.
Sprinkle salt and pepper (optional)

Gambas pil pil

Gambas pil pil is a tapas dish of prawns cooked in garlic, chilli and olive oil. I absolutely love making gambas because it is so simple to make and tastes absolutely amazing.


180 gm raw, peeled and cleaned prawns
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp crushed red chilli / chilli flakes
4-5 cloves of garlic finely chopped (about 2 tsp)
1/4 tsp paprika (optional)
1/4 tsp parsley


Add some salt to the prawns and keep aside for 15-20 minutes

In a small pan heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the garlic and toss. Add the chilli flakes and cook for 1 minute. 
Add in the prawns and cook for for 2 minutes turning after a minute. The prawns will change colour, indicating they are cooked. Turn the heat off.

Add the parsley and paprika.

Serve with crusty bread or pav (white bread roll)
