HONEY GARLIC SALMON – a captain cooks creation

HONEY GARLIC SALMON – a captain cooks creation

Encouraged by the delicious results and popularity of his Honey Roast Duck a while ago (recipe here),  Francois asked permission to invade my land galley once again and I’m lovin’ it!  He cooks (I’ve never had any of his creations that haven’t  been super delicious).  He cleans up after himself (how could I ever complain about that). Added to that, he’s just an all round great guy and he kills spiders for me.  How could a relationship be any more…

HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

HONEY ROAST DUCK (a Captain Cooks creation)

Technically this recipe doesn’t fit my simple boat recipe criteria.  Yes, it was simple but it does require an oven of which I have none onboard.  But….when my man says he wants to cook a duck and the results are so freakin’ delicious I felt I needed to share it with you all.  There is a possibility that it could be cooked in a similar fashion tented with foil on a barbecue but we haven’t tried that yet so conventional…

CAPTAIN COOKS: BAKED HALIBUT in LEMON CREAM SAUCE

CAPTAIN COOKS: BAKED HALIBUT in LEMON CREAM SAUCE

He’s on a roll.  Second Captain Cooks in less than a week (his last creation here).  This time he made us an incredibly delicious fish dish in my daughter’s kitchen as we are currently homeless and at the time we hadn’t yet found a home for our boat. It is super easy to prepare.  Just season the fish well… Prepare the sauce and let it spend a few minutes  in the oven. Now that we are back on the water,…

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

It’s been far too long since I did a Captain Cooks post and what better way to kick off summer than with one of his yummy grilling recipes.  This one is so easy and the best part for she-who-is-in-charge-of-the-galley is there were so few dishes to wash up after…just one serving bowl, our dinner plates, forks and knives.  Oh, and Captain’s wine glass.  Can’t flip without a sip. The quantity of veggies and shrimp depends entirely on your appetite but…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 23 and 24

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 23 and 24

I’m one lucky Galley Kat this week. Not only did my daughter prepare us her Shakshuka, (her super delicious recipe here) Captain François decided to treat us to one of his faves for supper. On to the menu board for today… Breakfast Sweet Potato Sausage Pie I omitted the cheese this time and went back to my butcher for Whole 30 compliant sausage (click on image for recipe link) Lunch Pineapple Chicken Lettuce Wraps No recipe needed but this is…

CAPTAIN COOKS: WINE BRAISED RABBIT LEGS with MAPLE ROASTED CARROTS

CAPTAIN COOKS: WINE BRAISED RABBIT LEGS with MAPLE ROASTED CARROTS

After the pleasant occasion of the Captain’s Family Festivus (story here), we decided we wanted two more special guest-worthy meals before we dig in and get serious about pre-spring projects. Mine was a simple Lobster and Pan-Roasted Corn Chowder (recipe here) for New Year’s Eve. Captain wanted to cook us some rabbit. Apparently something from his past cooking ventures that had stuck in his head and what speaks cozy winter dining than a little wild game and a good red wine….

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Beer Marinated Ham

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Beer Marinated Ham

My man is at it again and voluntarily too. After the encouragingly huge success of his Marinated Ginger Tuna Steak (recipe link here), he asked to enter my galley arena once more. We recently enjoyed an evening with a group of boat friends at a pot luck house party. Someone’s contribution was ham cooked in beer. Divinely delicious! …which inspired Captain’s latest creation.   GRILLED BEER MARINATED HAM STEAK what you’ll need Ham steaks, about 6 Captain used a piece…

CAPTAIN COOKS – Soya Ginger Marinated Tuna

Be still my little Galley Kat heart! François asked: “Can we do another Captain Cooks blog post?” He plans it. He shops for the ingredients. He prepares it. AND… He even cleans up! Could there be any other answer than YES!!!? The following is the latest of his galley creations, always made (he says with a wink) with a ‘secret ingredient’ (don’t worry, I took the photos so I know what it is and promise not to leave it out)…

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Blood Orange Whiskey Cocktails

CAPTAIN COOKS: Grilled Blood Orange Whiskey Cocktails

Time to fire up that barbecue Galley Peeps.. …but a little warning should accompany this delicious recipe from the Captain… The obvious, 1. if on the water make sure you are safely at anchor for the day. The not so obvious, 2. if on the water and back at the dock, the aroma of oranges on the grill may bring forth guests for cocktails, it was that intoxicating. and… 3. if on land camping or RV-ing, #2 above may apply…
