MEDITERRANEAN BAKED FISH

MEDITERRANEAN BAKED FISH

Good day to you all my Galley Friends.  I hope you are all well and ready for another treat from my little kitchen.  I must admit, that I really have been missing our dear sail boat, and when meal time rolls around I especially miss my very compact but efficient galley. Cooking minimally has become so engrained, that even with more conventional appliances, I still prefer my boat things. Because on the boat I had just one burner to cook…

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

RUBY’S CINNAMON MONKEY BREAD

This is the recipe that started me off on a new tack when a friend found out I had a cooking blog and that I focused on easy to make, minimal boat-friendly dishes….and that onboard we are without a conventional oven.  She gave me this recipe of hers to try out to see if it would be appropriate to cook in my Omnia stove top oven.  The answer, a resounding YES!…and a new Galley Kat category was created: Friend’s Faves….

BAKED GREEN DUMPLINGS in RED PEPPER SAUCE

BAKED GREEN DUMPLINGS in RED PEPPER SAUCE

Inspired by Rita’s Romanian Meatball with that tasty tomato soup sauce and since we were at that time still under 14-day quarantined following crossing provincial borders after selling of our sailboat, I foraged in my garden and pantry for dinner. One jar of roasted red peppers and a bunch of greens became the base for a delicious meatless meal. Trying to use as few dishes as possible I first sautéd the greens and set them aside to cool in a  large…

RITA’S ROMANIAN MEATBALLS w/TOMATO SOUP SAUCE

RITA’S ROMANIAN MEATBALLS w/TOMATO SOUP SAUCE

Hi all you Galley Peeps.  There has been so much going on in our lives at the moment, namely the sale of our sailboat R.E.D. (story here).  It’s thrown a curve ball at us that impacts so much of who we are and what we have been doing up to now.  Sea Salt Galley Kat was born out of our love for sailing and for me creating recipes that could be reproduced  in my teeny tiny boat galley. We are…

STUFFED PUMPKIN BLOSSOMS

STUFFED PUMPKIN BLOSSOMS

Did you think I’ve reached the epitome of galley ridiculousness?  Well you may be right, but oh my sweet garden these were SO good! How did these pumpkin blossoms come to be present in my land kitchen you may ask?  Boat related. Our dear sailboat R.E.D. is no longer ours as she now resides in the great white north…Yukon, to be specific. We’ve been having conversations on and off with RED’s new family over the past fews days (they’re really eager…

STUFFED BAKED HADDOCK

STUFFED BAKED HADDOCK

I have a simple dinner for you today my Galley Peeps. Delicate white fish, some salad crab and buttery crackers crumbs, cooked to perfection in barely 20 minutes. The preparation was super simple too. Fish in pan, a couple of grinds of salt and pepper.  Crumbs, melted butter, seasonings all mixed with crab meat. Sprinkled generously over the fish. Baked. Could it be any easier? The delicate flakey texture of the fish combined with the crispy buttery crabby topping and…

MARY’S BAKED FRUIT PUDDING

MARY’S BAKED FRUIT PUDDING

Hi there my Galley Peeps. Glad you stopped by today because, as promised, I have something for you to use up some of that leftover cake from my last post (Galley Cake Mix) I still laugh when writing that there is such a thing as leftover cake but here you go… One of my Peeps sent in this recipe quite a while ago and I thought it galley worthy. Simple in preparation.  Simple in ingredients. Yummy to eat. And a…

GALLEY CAKE MIX

GALLEY CAKE MIX

Continuing on with simplifying my life in the kitchen/galley, I have a super fun recipe for you this week. Those who have been following along for a while, know how much I dislike commercial preparations, preferring instead to make my own whenever possible and practical. Growing up in a small farming community with a father who always preached ‘the closer to nature, the better’ and in a time when convenience foods were just becoming popular, we ate mostly locally grown…

SIMPLIFIED HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

SIMPLIFIED HALIFAX DONAIR PIZZA

Several years ago I made my first batch of donair meat at home….wonderfully spiced little loaves baked in the oven, thinly sliced, topped with tomatoes and onion, wrapped in  warm pita bread then generously drizzled with sauce. Super messy to eat but oh, those flavours!  If you want to know a bit more about donairs or perhaps haven’t even heard of them, take a wee break and head over to my original post here. There’s also a little more in depth…

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

OLIVIA’S MAKE AHEAD PASTA BAKE

As promised, here is a very tasty casserole-type dish recipe  sent in by one of my Galley Peeps, Olivia.  It uses one can of commercial condensed soup or why not try my homemade version (GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP ). One bowl and a baking dish is all you need and what makes it super easy is no boiling the pasta ahead of time.  You put the prepared casserole to bed in the refrigerator today and tomorrow you bake it…
