MUSSEL STEW

MUSSEL STEW

When I was a kid my Mom used to, very rarely, buy a pint of fresh oysters in their liquor, to make the most memorable rich oyster stew. I’ve never made it myself but I can close my eyes and still bring back the sensory memories of how it tasted.. all buttery and creamy. From our feast of Steamed Garlic Leek Mussels, I had a cup of mussels and 2 cups of the broth leftover. The broth was already rich…

PUMPKIN ARANCINI

PUMPKIN ARANCINI

Another inspiration from RecipeTin Eats The second best thing about delicious risotto is having leftovers… and as Francois said last night when I made my really yummy Pumpkin Risotto ‘You should make this more often’. Luckily I had just enough left to make tonight’s even more yummy Pumpkin Arancini. Usually arancini are little risotto balls coated with bread crumbs and fried. To keep the galley mess to a minimum and to use less oil I make my arancini into little…

EASY JAPANESE PANCAKES

EASY JAPANESE PANCAKES

I make these tasty crunchy pancakes often… Vegetarian or with meat added they are an easy fix at home or on the water. (link to my usual recipe for Okonomiyaki ) When we provisioned last we bought a small package of broccoli slaw so instead of all that chopping and julienne-ing I am using them for a quick and easy supper tonight…     EASY JAPANESE PANCAKES 4 cups broccoli or cole slaw mix 2 green onions, chopped 1 clove…

BLACK VELVET COCKTAIL,GUINNESS STEW, COLCANNON and FISH CAKES

BLACK VELVET COCKTAIL,GUINNESS STEW, COLCANNON and FISH CAKES

Let’s begin with the important stuff…   BLACK VELVET COCKTAIL 1/2 flute champagne 1/2 flute Guinness Do you really need any more instructions? I can suggest three options:   Option # 1 Half fill the flute with bubbly. Over the back of a spoon gently pour Guinness into flute. This way the densities of the two will remain separate…. so they say… Couldn’t quite get this one right…   Option # 2 Reverse the above process adding Guinness first. Again…

PAN-FRIED POLENTA

PAN-FRIED POLENTA

  I was thankful that there was some polenta leftover from my first pressure cooker attempt last night…. Cook once – eat twice I sliced the remaining bits of polenta, heated some compound butter in the pan, fried until crispy brown on both sides. Served with a drizzle of maple syrup… The perfect combination of savoury with a hint of sweet.

ARANCINI

ARANCINI

  Arancini Ahh! leftover risotto! It doesn’t happen very often but it’s worth making extra risotto just to have these ‘little oranges’ the next day.   Such was the case from a recent dinner party of Fresh Mushroom Seafood Risotto… 3 cups of leftover risotto I added 1 egg, some extra parmesan, a little more salt & pepper formed the mixture into golf-ball-sized balls (keeping your hands dipped in water helps keep you from becoming a sticky rice mess) roll…
