And now for the chocolate recipe you have all been waiting for that I am reluctantly sharing because it’s so good! It’s so good that I almost want to cry as i’m typing this. I hope you give it a go. It’s so worth a try!

Deep Fried Chocolate Strawberry recipe

Ingredients:

Strawberries

300g Dark Chocolate

1 egg

3/4 cup of milk

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 tablespoons Sugar

1 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour

a pinch of salt

2 pinches of baking powder

Oil for frying ( I used olive oil)

Cooking thermometer

Instructions:

Wash and dry your strawberries thoroughly. Prepare a tray lined with baking paper. Temper your dark chocolate, watch video here to learn how to temper with a microwave. Dip your strawberries one at a time holding each one by the stem and placing on the tray with baking paper. Leave to set until chocolate hardens.

As your chocolate sets, prepare the batter: whisk your egg, milk and tablespoon of olive oil together in one bowl. In a separate bowl mix your dry ingredients together (flour, salt, sugar and baking powder) and then add your liquid mixture gradually mixing until the lumps disappear and your mixture is looking nice and smooth like a baby’s bottom.

Take off the stems from your strawberries and prepare a bowl/plate lined with some kitchen paper. Heat your oil in a small pot ( you don’t need a big pot and find you will need less oil for this) make sure it’s at least 2 inches deep, bring it to a temperature of about 188-200 degrees Celcius (370F)

Dip your chocolate strawberry in batter and gently place in hot oil. adding no more than 3-4 strawberries at a time. You will see it puff up (because of the egg in the mixture), it will then flip itself and turn a pale golden colour. Remove with a fork and place on kitchen paper plate. Repeat for the rest and serve warm to room temperature (not piping hot) drizzle some hot chocolate sauce or a scoop of ice cream on the side. Warning: This is heavenly! Come back and let me know how it went for you and if you have any questions. The video for this will be coming in the next few days so click here to subscribe to my newsletter so you will automatically get an e-mail when the video is up.

White Chocolate Rice: Cooking with Chocolate

White Chocolate Rice: Cooking with Chocolate

Today we are going to be cooking with chocolate.White Chocolate Rice with Salmon & Asparagus. Please like this video and help me win this competition. Thank you ūüôā

Video Transcript:

Hi Guys, This is my entry for Jamie Oliver’s search for a food tube star with uncle ben’s competition. Today i’m going to be showing you how to make some white chocolate sauce with some salmon, which will go perfectly with some rice. So here we go:

Come over here and i’ll show you the ingredients, I hope you are liking my sea shell theme today. Got some lovely massive sea shells that I got from Italy whilst on holiday this summer. What have I got here? we’ve got some lovely rice which we are going to cook. 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Some lovely lemons: 1 whole lemon freshly squeezed, some white chocolate of your preference, I like fairtrade. Some green chillies (this is completely optional) a cup of water, 1 teaspoon of all purpose flour and salt, 1 teaspoon of black pepper and a seasoning cube of your choice as well as some lovely salmon that we are going to use.So, I can’t wait to show you how to make this lovely recipe. Let’s get cracking ’cause i’m hungry and I can’t wait!

First of all we are going to boil our rice, pour it in there, add some water, season it with some salt and cook it for about 15 mins. Hopefully that should be cooking nicely. And over here we are going to heat that up, add our flour into the warm oil, mix that really well, add cup of water, this will start to thicken. It’s looking lovely and really really smooth. Add our seasoning, black pepper, lemon juice and mix it all in. We are going to add some lovely white chocolate, nice big chunk here. It will add a really nice, sweet flavour to our sauce. I absolutely love this sauce, everyone who has tasted it is always amazed that there’s chocolate in it and it just tastes gorgeous! Now it’s nice and glossy, so this is the part where I add my chilli but it’s pretty amazing the way it is and I don’t really want to alter it except to add a bit of a kick.(I always find that I never make enough of this)

So our white rice has pretty much been cooking and I think it’s ready so i’m just going to give it a taste…. perfect! perfect, perfect! So, what happens now? I’ve still got a little bit of water in there so we’re just going to give it a bit of a rinse with cold water and get all that starch out of there. The next thing we are going to do now, is get our salmon ready with some asparagus just to top it off. wow… amaaaazing! Lightly add some asparagus to the mix, take it out and basically we are going to pop it on the plate over here, we’ve added our rice, we have 3 little scoops of rice, white chocolate sauce on our salmon, asparagus that we’ve fried very lightly and just put that there on the side. So we’ve got our lovely white chocolate sauce with some salmon and rice. I hope you enjoyed this presentation, you found it useful and probably something you would like to try at home, please like this video if you like it, share it with your friends and help me win this competition. I’ll see you soon, bye. Video Outtakes.
