Local Bundaberg Chilli Prawns

When the river meets the paddock, you end up with a subtle flavour sensation of that sweet salty seafood flavour that a prawn can seduce us all with and then throw in some heat & punch from a locally grown Bundaberg Chilli and it’s what i call a Simple, yet seductive dish.

I¬†typically prepare these tasty morsels as a canap√© for our private catering events and I’ve been told by numerous clients who have suggested they don’t eat prawns- “they were amazing!!”

For me though, the two key elements to this dish are seasonality and local and whalla- thats it!!

Where to Find your Seafood?

In the Bundaberg region alone there are 3 great seafood facilities:

Grunske’s Seafood, Ocean Pacific Seafood & Red Shed Seafood

For me, each of them have their own signature seafoods, though collectively they are nothing short of spectacular for us as consumers.

You see, you dont need to price shop them- its already well priced at each of them, the freshness is paramount and the friendly staff at the three of them makes the shopping experience for local Bundaberg Seafood a breeze.

So when you’re thinking of an easy bbq snack, then grab:

1kg of local Bundaberg prawns, 2 Aust Chilli Red Cayenne chillies, 2 Aust Chilli Green Cayenne chillies, 4 Gin Gin garlic cloves, some Claxton’s olive oil & salt & pepper.

Moooovvvvveeeee Over- Here comes Baffle Dairy!!

It’s easy to think about quality Milk products when you live in Australia and you have access to a cross selection of flavours, grades, brands & sizes.

Well, when i recently attended a number of supermarkets in Hong Kong, i was surprised to only see 1 Australian Milk company displaying their wares.

In the Bundaberg Region, we have one of Australia’s best possible milk brands on our very door step- Baffle Dairy and how brilliant would it be to be able to say “That comes from my home town!!”.

Bundaberg Brewed Drinks were sitting on the shelves in the soft drink aisle, so im looking forward to one day walking into an international grocery store and seeing Baffle Dairy with pride of place amongst the dairy section. Keep up the good work Baffle Dairy!!
