Menu: Nauru

See the look on our faces? Yep. This week’s menu for Nauru reflects fun, easy breezy island fare – all you need is one bite to feel the joy. The only thing we’re missing is the ocean breeze. I can’t decide if the best part is making fries on a grill, the simplicity of fresh pan-fried fish, or drinking iced coffee out of plastic bottles. What!? What.

Seriously. Stay tuned for more explanation on that.

What sounds good to you?

Grilled Island Fries [Recipe]
This week the Nauruan love of all things grilled inspires me to toss French fries on the grill. It’s a little crazy and a lot delicious. Especially once you learn the secret to doing it right every single time.

Coconut Crusted Fish [Recipe]
A super simple way to cook fish, dipped in egg, then coated with a mixture of shredded coconut and breadcrumbs. The finishing touch? A hearty squeeze of fresh lime juice.

“Recycled” Iced Coffee [Recipe]
Come with me on an iced coffee journey which begins with a smooth pitcher of cold brewed grounds and ends with a plastic bottle filled with iced coffee. Totally Nauru-style.

*All recipes and the meal review will be posted throughout the week.

P.S.  Last night I was up late, eating Afghanistan with a friend who has just set out on her Global Table Adventure. ♥ Where are YOU on your Adventure? Have you begun eating the world? Are you having fun yet? What’s stopping you?! (P.S. I put up this photo of her dinner on our Facebook Fan Page, feel free to do the same…. I love seeing photos and hearing stories about your meals)

    I’m really interested in the coconut crusted fish, since coconut is one of my most favourite things. The fish would go nicely with the grilled chips~~ hmm, were you hinting at Nauru island fish n’ chips? :D

    I have to say, that is an adorable photo of you and Ava! You two look like you’re having lots of fun! Please keep the pictures rolling – I love your worldwide and homely recipes :)

      Yes, I suppose this is Fish n’Chips for Nauru… cool :) We actually ate Pacific Rockfish for the fish and it was lovely. So glad you’re enjoying the Adventure! Happy stovetop travels! :)
