I’ve always loved cooking. I’m not the best cook nor do I know a lot of recipes but I do love cooking and learning about it. Now that I’m married and living away from my mom, I have no other choice but to put my cooking skills to the test. When the Facebook Page Tasty was at its peak, I’ve always loved seeing their recipes. Most, if not all of their recipes, look delicious and easy to make. I’ve been putting that theory to the test by trying out the ones that intrigued me.
My husband and I love to eat fish. When we were at the grocery, we decided to buy cream dory (we wanted salmon but that was out of our weekly budget). I found this recipe and thought that maybe we should try it with cream dory instead.
To bake the fish, we used an oven toaster. Doing so took longer. We also didn’t have fresh parsley. Overall, the recipe was okay. The crust tasted good but the fish itself lacked seasoning. Maybe we should have salted the fish first?
This has got to be one of the best recipes we’ve tried. The chicken tasted great and the rice was amazing. We didn’t use our oven and instead cooked the rice via stove. We ended up burning the rice at the bottom of the pan (aka tutong). We also didn’t have chicken stock so I substituted it with chicken cube, lol.
The flavors were amazing! I loved the taste of the chicken and the rice. One thing I’d change the next time I cook this is I’d add more toppings to the rice. Maybe add in more veggies? I’d definitely like that. The rice also resembled paella which made me think to add seafood too.
These two recipes were easy to follow. I did a lot of guestimation which might have caused some flavor issues (especially with the fish) but I think, generally speaking, these two recipes were okay. I loved that I was able to make these two dishes and add it to my repertoire!
Have you tried other Tasty dishes? What’s your favorite?
ps. I’m sorry for the lack of amazing food photos. We currently have yellow light and I took most of it while cooking and/or while we were eating. I’m still shy around my husband over taking my blog photos, lol.
pps. The title of the recipe links back to Tasty so go have fun looking at their site!
