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…

GRILLED BACON-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN BITES

GRILLED BACON-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN BITES

Missing my land-based Friday happy hours. The one day of the week that was a no-cook zone.  I could prepare things in advance but the whole idea was to create a no fuss, easy on the Galley Kat end of the week kind of dinner when we both got home from work.  Sometimes I would get a little carried away (who me?) with new recipes to try but it was that one sacred day…no not Sunday….sacred in the sense that…

GRILLED STEAK, DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS and BLUE CHEESE ROASTED POTATOES

GRILLED STEAK, DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS and BLUE CHEESE ROASTED POTATOES

This was one of those ‘super-suppers-at-anchor’ kind of meals.  A chilly damp day, lots of boat work and two very hungry sailors in need of a hearty dinner.  It was also  collaborative  – my fave way of cooking, sharing the work.  Captain ‘manned’ the grill (steak and potatoes) while I did some serious damage down in the galley (gettin’ the mushrooms drunk). Anyway, it was an awesome supper.  Tasty taters, mushrooms all drunk and saucy and that perfectly grilled hunk…

MAPLE PINEAPPLE GLAZED MAHI MAHI

MAPLE PINEAPPLE GLAZED MAHI MAHI

Sadly this recipe uses the last morsel from our recent Rhode trip gifts.  Going to have to learn to gather our own treasures from the sea from now on. But…. …with this ‘holy-crap-gonna-catch-us-something-big’ lure, how can we lose?  It even comes with the name ‘Tormenter”.  Watch out! The beauty of these types of dinners is the ease in cooking.  Most fish takes just a few minutes from prep to table.  This was no exception, although I let the filet marinate…

IRISH WHISKEY GRILLED BABY BACK RIBS

IRISH WHISKEY GRILLED BABY BACK RIBS

This one is far too good not to share.  You could use your own fave barbecue sauce but if you don’t mind simmering up this amazing mixture of tangy spicy rich thick sauce, please do feel free to use over and over and over again.  At the beginning of each season I make up a batch and bring it onboard.  Two cups of this sauce goes a long way, keeps well refrigerated and is great slapped on not only ribs…

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

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, I can make my own, which is what I did. All this to say, my…

Anyway, yesterday gave us some hope that grilling season isn’t too far far away. …and we are just going to ignore,…

GRILLED PORK TENDERLOIN with PINEAPPLE SALSA and JASMINE RICE

I keep wafting back and forth between craving summer barbecuing and cold weather comfort food. No doubt that I am in denial that soon we will no longer be aboard our little chalet on the water.
