Paps of Jura Dahl

Our thanks to Rob Parsons (Cap'n of the good ship Shanti and Brimble's First Mate) for this recipe that was dished up during the Scottish Islands Race. Chirpy Chick describes it as 'hot and spicy ... just like Rob' .

We have given this excellent recipe a difficulty rating of 'easy', however, if you decide to combine with a back-to-back 60 mile run , 12000 ft climb and 160 mile sail then we suggest you increase difficulty rating to 'medium'.
