    Siba Mtongana named one of 7 food goddesses by Tatler

    When is it that you know you are a leading voice in the food industry? It’s when the difficult-to-impress food world can’t get enough of you.

    And that’s the case with South African chef, award-winning cookbook author and TV personality, Siba Mtongana.

    The chef, who made her name globally with her popular shows, Siba’s Table, Sibalicious and Cooking with Siba, has been named by Tatler Malaysia as one of the 7 Food Goddesses in the World, in a list that includes other cooking goddesses like Nigella Lawson, Mexico’s Pati Jinich, India’s Amrita Raichand and the US’s Rachael Ray.

    “With five US Film and Television Awards and the prestigious Ubuntu Awards under her belt, Siba has taken the cooking world by storm since her eponymous cooking show Siba’s Table debuted in 2013. A charming smile and highly approachable presence, not unlike your favourite primary school teacher, seem to be the recipe for her ‘Sibalicious’ success.”

    Responding to the feature, Siba said it was a lovely surprise to once again be recognised alongside her food hero, Nigella Lawson.

    “I am also thrilled and blessed considering how influential and big Tatler is, not only in Malaysia but in the whole of the Asia Pacific Region.”

    It takes a lot for a chef to be regarded as a big deal, especially in a competitive and food-crazy region like the Asia Pacific.

    This therefore proves that Siba is not only a culinary star, but a global food goddess.

    Over the years Siba has shared her recipes with us and they are always a must-try with out readers.

    Here’s one of our favourites, one we are sure that even “my husband, Brian” will enjoy.

    Herbed Butter Sauce Prawns with Couscous

    Ingredients

    340g couscous

    Enough boiling chicken stock, to cover

    Pinch of salt

    Butter sauce and Prawns:

    90g butter

    6 cloves garlic, chopped

    1 tsp ginger, finely grated

    2 tsp fresh thyme, stem removed and chopped

    1 tsp coriander, roughly chopped

    2 fresh red chilli, seeded & chopped

    Juice and zest of 2 lemons

    2kg fresh king-size prawns, shelled and de-veined

    Vegetables:

    2 tbs olive oil

    300g 14cm-long courgettes cut in three lengthways

    300g asparagus tips, rinsed

    Handful fresh coriander, chopped

    Handful fresh parsley, roughly chopped

    Handful mint, roughly chopped

    Pinch of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper

    80g wild rocket

    300g thick plain Greek yoghurt

    Garnish:

    A few mint leaves

    2 red salad spring onions

    Method

    Place the couscous in a large, deep dish covering it with boiling chicken stock.

    Cover with plastic wrap and leave for about 15 minutes until the granules have doubled in size.

    To make the butter sauce, melt butter with the garlic, ginger, herbs and chilli in a large, non-stick frying pan and mix.

    Add the zest and lemon juice and stir.

    Cook the prawns in the sauce for 4 minutes, in batches if necessary.

    To another pan add olive oil, courgettes and asparagus tips and cook for 2 minutes.

    Add herbs, season with salt and pepper and stir. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

    Fluff the couscous with a fork, then stir in asparagus mixture.

    Add the rocket and mix in.

    Taste, and add extra olive oil and lemon juice if needed.

    Top with the prawns.

    Garnish with thick Greek-style plain yoghurt in the middle and mint leaves and spring onion.
