MAY ROUND-UP

My goodness this month went fast!   We’ve been so busy dividing our time amongst getting the boat ready for her spring splash, preparing for guests and tending to getting our new-to-us gardens cleaned up that it’s left little time for anything else. I did take the time though to put together a list of your favourite Galley Kat recipes for the month of May. […]

SALMON LOAF with DILL SAUCE

Since we’ve been doing so much outdoor work in the garden lately, I haven’t been keeping up with supplying our land galley.  Funny really how I still provision like we are still onboard.  Cans of this and that.  Lots of grains.   Plus more and more we’ve run into friends and some family members who are either cutting back on carbs or for health reasons […]

NOT-SO-NOODLEY TUNA CASSEROLE

We came back from a recent visit to the doctor with orders for one of us (no names will be mentioned) to cut back on white potatoes, white bread, white rice and pasta.  A 25% cut back he said. So this Galley Kat got to searching through the recipe data base, the pantry and refrigerator to find options for tonight’s supper.  Well!!! Do I ever […]

SALMON and SWEET CORN STEW

 Having one of those days.  Don’t want to cook.  Don’t know what to cook even though I have a well planned database to choose from and a pantry and refrigerator fully stocked.  I just DON’T FEEL LIKE COOKING!!!  Let’s see what miracle I can pull from the cupboard.  Always conscious of a balanced meal…protein, vegetables and some carbohydrates…I find a can of salmon…I find a […]

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 […]

BRAZILLIAN COD FISH STEW

Desperately needing some fish.  After all the moving stuff and at times not so healthy eating I really felt like something fresh from the sea.  Afterall we’re now living just a few paces from St-Margaret’s Bay and some of the freshest harvest from the sea so tonight is the night. Some sautéed  veggies… Seasonings and coconut milk… Add the marinated fish… And you’ll be ready […]

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 […]

PORTUGUESE COD, POTATO and EGG CASSEROLE

We do love our fish.  Haven’t had a lot of luck catching the critters during our summers on the boat but we do dream someday of improving on this skill.  When we are lucky enough to get hold of fresh fish it’s a feast aboard.  With a little pretending tonight I created this Portuguese dish with some fresh cod found at our local fish market. […]

COD FISH CASSEROLE

I made this simple cod dish craving something warming and comforting wishing away those last few days of winter.  Originally I’ve made it baked in a conventional oven but realized that it could easily be reproduced in my little Omnia Stove Top. Basic ingredients, readily available. Cod filets poached in milk… …then mixed together with seasonings and mashed potatoes. Baked in individual ramekins it made […]

STOVE TOP TUNA ORZO CASSEROLE

I love the versatility of orzo pasta.  It’s one of those comfort foods that goes so well added to soups, salads, casseroles, cooks relatively quickly compared to rice yet gives a similar toothy texture.  I’ve used it many times while on the water because one little package goes a long way and takes up so little space.  One of my fave recipes I’ll share with […]
