THAI SHRIMP with MANGO COCONUT SAUCE

THAI SHRIMP with MANGO COCONUT SAUCE

This is a happy Happy Hour in the making.  Holiday season inspired and super easy to prepare…and I can now guarantee they are taste-tester approved. It’s fun presenting these as little individual servings….mango sauce served up in shot glassses or little port glasses. Let your guests grab a few extra shrimp on individual plates. So good!  So easy!  I’m now wishing I had made more. THAI SHRIMP with MANGO COCONUT SAUCE   Print Author: Galley Kat Ingredients 1 lb cooked large…

PAN SEARED SCALLOPS with GREENS and GINGER VINAIGRETTE

PAN SEARED SCALLOPS with GREENS and GINGER VINAIGRETTE

I don’t think I could ever get tired of eating scallops.  Just writing this makes me want to make this easy salad again and again and again.  Light plump bites, sprinkled with just a touch of salt flakes and a grind of pepper served over a fresh salad.  The beauty of this dish is the scallops can be served either warm straight from the pan or chilled.  Delicious either way. The dressing with a hint of fresh ginger and squeeze…

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

This next recipe came about after a long day on the water when all I wanted to do was pour a glass of wine and kick back a bit.  You know those days when you ask your significant other what they would like for dinner and all you get is ‘surprise me’.  So I poured that wine and thought and came up with a tasty winner. So easy too.  Just a few ingredients: quick cooking shrimp, some udon noodles and…

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

Several weeks ago now, my eldest son, his beautiful wife and their darling newest addition to the family visited us. As with most of our get-togethers it was all too brief so we packed in as much quality time as possible.  Those moments, both past and present, when we are gathered together for meals, are what so many great family memories are made of and the meal that my daughter-in-law made for us one particular evening will remain as one…

CRAB ROLLS with AVOCADO MAYO

CRAB ROLLS with AVOCADO MAYO

What is it about fluffy white hot dog buns?  Certainly not my healthiest choice of breads but when it comes to steamed hot dogs piled with grilled onions or saurkraut and really good mustard they can’t be beat.  And for some reason lobster or crab rolls fall into that same something-about-comfort-food-and-childhood-memories category. Here you have it.  My little guilty pleasure.  ‘Marshmallow’ white bread hot dog buns slathered with butter. All those healthy greens should balance it out. And by the…

A year has ended. Another has arrived all fresh with resolutions and expectations. It’s the time of the year that calls for an extra special meal shared with special guests.   A very rich and very easy one-pot supper that I created that has brought back memories of places I’ve lived where lobster was served as a traditional New Year’s celebration. LOBSTER and PAN-ROASTED CORN CHOWDER what you will need 2 tbsp butter 3/4 cup corn cut from the cob…

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,…

EASY SEAFOOD STEW

EASY SEAFOOD STEW

I promised I would share my recipe for Easy Seafood Stew from a recent land-based dinner party. We had been preparing for our summer departure and I wanted to offer something yummy but I have also been trying to keep my onhand fresh ingredients to a minimum. And there were so many other things going on in our lives at the time that I also didn’t want to spent hours shopping, preparing and cooking. This recipe was ridiculously simple and…
