Curries, brownies, tempura and so much more, Oh my!

Use within a few days if fresh ingredients used
No-Bake Brownies:
Heat and stir until chocolate is melted
Add and mix

For a trip combine milk powder, and chocolate chips in one bag, and chocolate and coconut in another.
Fish Tempura (courtesy of Ksenia Barton, Vancouver, BC)
Filet and cut into 3/4" chunks one or two fresh caught fish, pat dry
Mix potato flour and buttermilk pancake mix in a 2: 1 ratio (e.g. 1 cup potato flour, 1/2 cup pancake mix)
Rehydrate dry ingredients with 1:1 soy sauce:water until batter is smooth, but not runny
Heat 1" of oil in a skillet until a drop of batter sizzles, browns, and swells up
Dip fish chunks into batter and drop into heated oil; fry only two or three chunks at a time so as not to cool oil, remove when brown
Dip in a wasabe (Japanese horseradish) and soy sauce mixture
*Try this recipe at home in small quantities before you cut up a whole fish!
