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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

LOBSTER and PAN-ROASTED CORN […]

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 […]
