Kensington Mums Experience

We were delighted to start with the PAPA L’s Grilled Prawns TIgerPrawns. They have 0 prep time and 6 minutes cooking time. The Chef recommends to have it with soft bread if you will have it as a starter or you can also have this as a main course and serve it with rice, mash or chips. They were an explosion of flavour super delicious and had a proper spicy kick to them.

We then savoured the lovely Honey-glazed Salmon Supreme with Kenyan Beans and chilli, ginger, lime, sesame and soy dressing. Every single ingredient blended perfectly to create a simply delicious burst of flavour with every bite. Cooking time for the salmon was 5-8 minutes. We accompanied it with PAPA L’s Ma’s Benachin rice following their instructions on the booklet to simply place the sealed bag of rice into boiling water for 5-8 minutes.

We then continued with our home feast enjoying their to DIE FOR Beef Short Ribs with Pickled Red Cabbage, onions and chilli. This was by far our favourite one! The beef simply melts in your mouth, it is so tender and tastes delicious. Do follow the Chef’s tip to use all the marinade from the bag as the more sauce the better. Cooking time: 25 min.

If you do want some inspiration from the man himself you can head over to their IGTV channel and tune in there to watch PAPA L cook some of his favourites – he just can’t stay out of the kitchen!

So, take the day off from cooking and order now PAPA L’s Kitchen at home for the perfect date night meal or your family meal.
