SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

Recently when doing some searching for more easy onboard recipes using Jiffy Cornbread, I came across several recipes for Cowboy Casserole. I had made a couple of batches of my own clone mix for making Cornbread (recipe here) to bring onboard so thought, why not make this into a Sailor’s Casserole instead using our Omnia stove-top oven?…afterall, Captain prepared our last two dinners, it’s time for the Galley Kat to pull her weight. Even though it’s a bit rock and roll preparing dinner while under way,…

SARAMURA – ROMANIAN BRINED FISH

SARAMURA – ROMANIAN BRINED FISH

A member of a FaceBook group that I belong to mentioned ‘googling’ Romanian Fish Brine for ideas on how to cook fresh fish. Curious, I set out on find what this fish brining was all about. I found several and the following description: “Saramură is a traditional Romanian dish, generally based on different kinds of fish, especially in Dobrogea, and dried or smoked meat in Moldova and Transylvania.

I found that if I wrap the broccoli in foil and place in the cooker pot with the rice it will…
