This recipe is truly Australian Summer on a plate.

It pulls from all of my favourite influences and combines many of my favourite foods. And when I posted it to Instagram, you guys went wild (which was awesome by the way!)

You’ve got to love a fresh recipe that takes no time at all to prepare and celebrates all of this nutritious food. I can picture this dish sitting just as proudly on your midweek, have-no-time-really-hungry dinner table, as on your table with friends sitting between other yummy dishes and made to share.
