Hello everybody, I’m so excited to introduce you to these 3 easy recipes that I learned from Mere Marshall in Rotorua, New Zealand!
It was great to visit her because I had been looking forward to meeting her. If you want to know why I think she’s such an inspiring person, please check out her fan page on my website. She invited all her family members and friends over for a big party on the day we filmed. We had a great time!
Abalone is known as paua to the Maoris. Paua, which is found off the coasts of New Zealand, is dark green and looks a lot different from the abalone that we see outside of New Zealand. But it tasted exactly like the abalone we all know. The inside of a paua shell looks like colorful jewels. I had paua fritters twice in New Zealand during my visit to Jamie Frater’s house in Wellington and Mere’s house in Rotorua.
There are 3 recipes in this video: traditional New Zealand paua fritters, taro chips, and a recipe Mere created: a dipping sauce made with Korean soondubu (soft tofu) and dill leaves. Making a dipping sauce with soondubu was a brilliant idea! How come I didn’t think about this! The dipping sauce is so creamy and flavorful, but not greasy at all because it’s made with soft tofu! It’s also totally vegetarian. I’m sure you will be impressed by the soft creamy sauce, just as I was.
“Paua fritters are a real kiwi dish often had on a Friday with fish and chips. My recipe is an old standard with taro instead of potatoes. They are delicious as chips and my own tofu and dill cream to go well with it. This is a nod to my enjoyment of herbs and tofu or dubu. Added to this dish, the cream is like satin and flavoursome without being too rich. Vegans can enjoy it too.”
The cameraman for this video was Kristian Robin Lomath, a very talented artist and a friend of Mere’s. Thanks for being the cameraman, Kristian!
This is a very creamy yet light sauce/cream that is nice with both paua and taro chips.
