Not one of my best dishes because I added too much yoghurt at the end, however I gave it its spicy taste again by adding more herbs and spices. Evaluation: Skills: Cutting, Chopping, Blending, Mixing, Boiling Conclusion: Overall, the dish could be adapted by using different types of meat and by using different spices and varying the amount of yoghurt. ...read more.

Name of Dish: Barbecue Chicken Tacos with Lime Mayonnaise Why Have You Chosen It?

Also I could use different types of chili to vary the hotness. Name of Dish: Chili, Lime and Tuna Steaks Why Have You Chosen It? I chose this recipe because I hadn't experimented with a fish recipe so far and I felt I had to because fish. Especially tuna is very healthy because of its very high protein content. Also the sweet potato is high in carbohydrates. Ingredients used: 1 red chili 3 spring onions 5cm (2in) ginger 1 clove garlic 250 g sweet potatoes 125 g sugar snaps 125 g baby corn 1 courgette 4 tuna steaks, approx 150g each 3 tbsp olive oil 3 tbsp soy sauce 2 limes Result: This was one of my best dishes because I cooked and I thought that cooking fish improved my skills range because I had to use a food probe to check if it was cooked properly. Evaluation: Skills: Frying, Boiling, Chopping, Cutting, Mixing, Seasoning Conclusion: To adapt this recipe I could use a different type of fish, however it still would have to be healthy fish. I could also vary the vegetables used and could also serve it with rice. ...read more.
