LION’S HEAD MEATBALLS

I have a very easy tasty Asian inspired  meal for you Galley Peeps.  Pork meatballs so full of flavour and tender cooked on a bed of greens in my Omnia stove top oven but you could easily make in a covered wok or baking dish. Don’t be thrown off by how ‘soupy’ the meat mixture is.  It came together very well once browned on each […]

GINGER POACHED EGG SOUP

Today’s recipe qualifies as an easy meatless meal. Lots of garlic, broth and ginger for the base. Eggs and bok choy filled in the rest to give us a well-rounded nutritious supper.   I used vegetable broth but chicken or beef broth would add extra dimension.  I’ve also used a spoonful or two of miso paste in the past for that added immunity-probiotic boost. Loosen […]

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

More and more I’m appreciating the beauty of using my pressure cooker.  A little sauté time and one minute under pressure and bang we were ready to eat.  In fact, it took less time than making the sweet and sour sauce and that took just five minutes. I kept half the cabbage slaw to add after pressure to give a little extra crunch to the […]

ASIAN CHICKEN and CABBAGE SALAD

Spending as much time as we do on the boat, economy becomes a huge focus: Economy of efforts (streamlining the chores so we can be spending more time enjoying sailing) Economy of scale (keeping our enviromnment small and simple as the less we have, the less that needs our attention) Economy of resources (anyone who has spent any amount of time on a boat or […]

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

This next recipe came about after a long day on the water when all I wanted to do was pour a glass of wine and kick back a bit.  You know those days when you ask your significant other what they would like for dinner and all you get is ‘surprise me’.  So I poured that wine and thought and came up with a tasty […]

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

Several weeks ago now, my eldest son, his beautiful wife and their darling newest addition to the family visited us. As with most of our get-togethers it was all too brief so we packed in as much quality time as possible.  Those moments, both past and present, when we are gathered together for meals, are what so many great family memories are made of and […]

DRAGON SAUCE

Got another good one for you Galley Peeps.  It’s one of those really versatile Asian-inspired sauces that work well with meats, seafood, fish, with pasta or rice and is far too easy to make and has evolved from many trials to my now ‘tried and true’ formula. Tonight I did the full meal deal and made it fresh,  then made some breaded chicken nuggets, braised […]

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

We were recently gifted with some tuna from our sailing/fishing friends and wanted to put together something worthy of their generosity. In my search, I landed on what looked like a winner from The Domestic Man.  Simple, very quick to prepare and cook, plus I was introduced to a new-to-me seasoning, Furikake, a combination of sesame seeds and nori seaweed.  Well, I thought to myself, […]
