SEAFOOD PAJEON (KOREAN PANCAKES) with SPICY DIPPING SAUCE

SEAFOOD PAJEON (KOREAN PANCAKES) with SPICY DIPPING SAUCE

I first had these many years ago in Korea when visiting my daughter several years ago. She lived there for a couple of years teaching English to young South Korean students and on my arrival she introduced me to Pajeon. We enjoyed then plain (just the eggs mixture with green onions) and a seafood version – my favourite. SEAFOOD PAJEON with SPICY DIPPING SAUCE 2 cups all purpose flour 1/4 cup rice flour 1 tsp sea salt 2-1/4 cups cold…

JUST THE BASICS

JUST THE BASICS

Our lady R.E.D. is now out of the water for the season, so the process begins to remove all but the essentials and bring them back to our land home for the next few months… From now until next spring my teeny tiny galley will be stripped bare to just very basic items…. …something with which to cut the baguette, …something with which to open the bottle of wine, …something with which to cut open the package of saucisson or…

BUDDHA BOWLS with CREAMY CARROT GINGER DRESSING

BUDDHA BOWLS with CREAMY CARROT GINGER DRESSING

I’m not sure if there is a specific recipe for a Buddha bowl but in our galley it lends itself to all sorts of options… completely vegan, vegetarian with or without tofu or with animal protein or fish added. The rice can be cooked in 15 minutes in a pressure cooker. The sweet potatoes can be grilled on skewers on your barbecue or as I did this time, tossed in some oil (a splash of sesame oil added is great),…

I’m back to picking away at my 44 Classics… this time Tartare… Several years ago now, we were lucky to have the chance to spend a month in Paris.

QUICK VEGAN ASIAN “BEEF”

QUICK VEGAN ASIAN “BEEF”

TVP or textured vegetable protein has turned out to be a very useful addition to our boat provisioning since it doesn’t require refrigeration (our little cooler space is at a premium). I don’t use it often but it is a great stand-in when a quick meal is required… and I mean quick… (see link to my vegan boat chili)   …once hydrated the TVP has the appearance of ground chicken or turkey and takes on the flavours of whatever seasoning…
