Chicken Livers!

On tonight’s menu is piri piri style chicken livers. I first discovered these on a trip to Cape Town, South Africa and fell in love. Combined with some fresh calamari and a gorgeous sunset, I had one of the best meals I’ve ever had…many times over the course of a week!

It was Christmas though, so I treated myself. While generally healthy, they contain a lot of cholesterol and so should be eaten in moderation. Enjoy as a treat!

They contain loads of vitamins, in particular Vitamin A (good for vision and healthy skin) and B-12 (boosts energy levels & fights Alzheimers).

The recipe below from Epicurious uses some good spices – coriander, cumin, garlic and chilis – which have many purported health benefits. Take these benefits with a pinch of salt (but not too much!) Make sure you are using good quality butter & olive oil so as to enhance the health benefits of the ingredients as well as their flavor!
