I have kept up the South African theme for this weekend’s dinner party menu. I have chosen a menu from one of our members Scrumptious who has shared 57 recipes. I am putting all of our dinner party menus on our diner party page for easy reference so you can have the full years selection of menus for inspiration.
Scrumptious Dinner Party Menu
Using ripe tomatoes on the vine – place on a baking tray with garlic cloves, drizzle with olive oil and roast. Meanwhile in a saucepan fry onions and add balsamic vinegar cooking to reduce. Then add in everything on the baking tray and stir in to the onions – liquidise to a rustic consistency and serve with creme friache , some basil leaves and coutons.
The main course of salmon roast potatoes and salads is an easy and light main to prepare. The salmon is all about the soy and sesame dressing which is put together and drizzled over the salmon – best to do this at least 12 hours before cooking (ideally leave it to marinate overnight) to really let the juices sink into the salmon.
The crunchy noodles and the flaked almonds make this coleslaw a really interesting and tasty salad.
For dessert this raspberry pudding involves whisking the eggs and sugar and then stiring in the salt, flour and milk. Put half of this mixture into your pudding bowl and cook for 15 minutes and then add all the raspberries and top with the rest of the mixture and then put it back in the oven for a further 30 minutes. To serve sprinkle with caster sugar and serve with cream or ice cream.
