New Years Day

Promised the Darling a slap up breakfast, major yum but oh so bad....lots of cheese, chorizo, potato fried in get the picture.
Based on a recipe I found on the net but with some changes.
Heat a good tablespoon of oil in a heavy based frypan over medium heat, grate a medium sized potato into the pan, add 1/4 finely chopped onion.  Fry until potato is cooked through and quite crispy.  The potato will stick, just keep scraping it up and turning it over.
Slice 1 small chorizo sausage into rings, add to pan to crisp.
Scoot potato, onion and sausage to one side of pan, add two eggs and fry.

Toast two slices of good bread, top with mashed avocado if you like it, top with grated sharp cheese, place under a grill to melt.  
Dollop a teaspoon of Greek Yoghurt and a teaspoon of mild chilli sauce onto the melted cheese
Layer the crispy potato and onions then the chorizo sausage, top with the fried egg and serve.  
Big Thumbs Up from the Darling but not something that should be on a diet site...ooops!.
As you can guess, not a pretty dish, and anyway I forgot to take a pic but did better for Lunch.

based on
a Nigella Lawson recipe from her T.V. Show ' Express'

Ingredients I used:

1 tablespoon mirin
1.4 teaspoon wasabi paste
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 drops sesame oil
good pinch Maldon sea salt
Place all these in a screw top jar and shake well.

Divide dressing between two mixing bowls

To Bowl 1 add:
splash of lime juice
scant 2 cups finely sliced Chinese Cabbage, toss together and plate on serving plates.

To Bowl 2 add
1/2 de-seeded long red chilli, sliced thinly
1/2 cup fresh shredded crab meat
toss well and press crab into a mould, I used a 1/4 cup measure.
Turn out onto shredded cabbage

Garnish with:
1/2 ripe avocado balled using a melon baller around the crab and
a smattering of green onion slices on top of crab.
