MasterChef: This Is What Would Actually Happen If You Cooked Fish At Work

The 'MasterChef' office kitchen appliance challenge was inspirational, but was it realistic?

In order to get a step closer to an immunity pin, contestants Larissa, Tati, Steph and Abbey were tasked with creating a meal in just 45 minutes, using three office kitchen appliances -- a kettle, a microwave and a sandwich press.

The clever women came up with creations that went above and beyond the brief, showing us a thing or two about what we could be whipping up in our lunch break.

Larissa plated up some popcorn grits with pan-fried calamari, Steph managed to serve up an eggplant curry, Abbey magicked a fillet of snapper with cauliflower and pickled veg, and Tati won the challenge with her Vietnamese pancake with grilled chicken and fish sauce dressing.

But rather than being impressed by our contestants' culinary know-how and quick thinking, viewers were APPALLED that anyone would dream of cooking seafood in a shared work environment.

Some pointed out the realities of cooking in the office -- explaining that time, the cleanliness of the work kitchen and having to share appliances with your hungry colleagues might pose a problem.

But more worryingly, this 'MasterChef' segment might have inspired a whole new generation of office kitchen gastronomers, so, if you smell snapper wafting down the hallway tomorrow, you've been warned.
