FRESH DIGBY SCALLOP and GRILLED CORN CEVICHE

FRESH DIGBY SCALLOP and GRILLED CORN CEVICHE

Fresh is the name of the game here in the galley today.  Our local market just got in some fresh (never before frozen, or soaked in sodium tripolyphosphate) Digby scallops all plump and juicy.  Some green tomatoes and farm fresh corn on the cob came together to produce our supper tonight. I was feeling a little oink-ish and bought a whole pound of the little sea jewels planning on serving them as a main course although you could easily get…

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

TASTY CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

When Captain makes a request for something specific from the galley, the Kat does her best to comply.  Francois has been asking for pulled pork anything for some time now so tonight I broke out the pressure cooker to assuage his cravings.  The important thing to remember is that the cut of meat has to be a rather fatty one.  I’ve tried to make pulled pork with tenderloin before and the results were a bit dry.  You can always fudge…

SHRIMP GUACAMOLE CANAPÉS

SHRIMP GUACAMOLE CANAPÉS

This is the second of two new recipes I wanted to try out for an upcoming cocktail party.  I was really encouraged with the first one – little Croque Monsieur bites. It was so good I ended up making full-sized Croque Monsieur that night for dinner. Smoked Salmon Croque Monsieur recipe here This next one, too, received rave reviews from my official but not-entirely-unbiased taste tester.  It’s very easy to make…little toasted or roasted sweet potato rounds, some smashed garlicy…

GRILLED SALMON with AVOCADO SALSA

GRILLED SALMON with AVOCADO SALSA

Tonight we felt like eating something that felt clean, something easy. This was one of those winning combination meals when with a little planning I could put this delicious dinner together using only one burner (boat galley in mind of course).  The potatoes went on first (recipe for my stove top method here) Then, while the potatoes cooked, I prepared the rub and massaged the salmon to be set aside for about for 20 minutes. Then I chop chopped the salsa…

BAKED AVOCADO EGGS

BAKED AVOCADO EGGS

  When we’re not heading out on the water early, I love putting together something a bit more special for our breakfast.  On days like this our first morning coffee spills over to a second, sometimes a third so that by the time we eat it’s more of a brunch thing.   Many years ago now when we were in the dating phase of our relationship, Francois used to put together some really awesome brunches.  One of the things I…

SWEET POTATO TOAST

SWEET POTATO TOAST

This has been all over the internet lately, toasting slices of sweet potato.  Always kean for ways to eat more veggies, I was up for trying it.  What got my interest though was how I could translate it to a boat recipe.  We have no toaster on our boat.  There’s just so much that can be fit into the already limited space in the galley plus while not on shore power an electric toaster would be useless.  I do have…

FRIED AVOCADO with WASABE LIME DIPPING SAUCE

FRIED AVOCADO with WASABE LIME DIPPING SAUCE

Sometimes it’s unavoidable for me not to dirty a pile of dishes, but when the outcome is delicious it somehow makes all the effort worthwhile.  This was one of those times.  My little galley sink was full and the hand pump faucet really had its workout today. Because  all the mixing, dipping and breading could be done in stages  and the sauce made ahead I  washed up and put away what wasn’t needed.  That way it didn’t seem like such…

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…

CORN AVOCADO FRITTERS

CORN AVOCADO FRITTERS

I returned recently from a trip to the East coast and found not a whole lot of options in the galley for dinner.  One can of corn niblets and an avocado presented themselves for the perfect vegetarian dinner.  And I had enough little fritters left over for a quick re-heated breakfast the next day. What a resourceful Galley Kat! …but in truth, a very lazy Galley Kat, as I didn’t really feel like making a huge effort anyway. CORN AVOCADO…
