My delicious seafood lasagne experiment


About Thomas

I write because I can type. I can type because I have a keyboard.

I am a new age Australian resident that is experiencing this new continent with a fresh set of eyes. 

I write on a wide range of topics. Well, I write on food. There you have it, I write on a wide range of food as well. 


I love prawns and salmon, so I created a lasagne that's out of this world.

Experimentation is the key to creating new dishes. If you don't experiment, you won't discover things that are exquisitely different.

Let’s take lasagna, for example. While most people make it with beef, why not experiment with a vegan or seafood version?

 I love prawns and salmon, so this was my experiment, create a lasagna out of the seafood that I love.

While this isn't a dish you can whip up in an instant, it takes a little over an hour, and will see you and your guests hungry for more. Serves 4-5 people in one go.
