My Kitchen Rules – Ono style

Our family has become slightly obsessed with My Kitchen Rules whether it be because watching train wrecks being averted is thrilling, the schadenfreude in me loves the prospect of the bitchy couples crumbling and of course Manu and his sexy accent. Anyhoo, my Dad also has gotten really really into the show probably because they’re just “normal” people like us? So for my sister’s birthday he basically gave himself a 3hour limit to cook three courses and he also did all the required shopping during the day haha

  1. Oh my… oh my oh my oh my…. does your daddykins have space for one more in the family? The prawn heads look awesome!

    Is it pan fried or deep fried? Is it pure miso paste inside the head or a mixture? I have to know these things! The crispy just calls to me!
