STEAKHOUSE BRUSCHETTA

Want a back-of-the-boat treat for your next docktail get-together? One that your guests will be talking about for a good long while? This is it! And if you make the main components in advance (steak grilled, tomatoes etc tossed, cheesy base whipped and bread toasted), all you have to do is assemble at the last minute and you will look like the Galley Star that […]

EASY FISH TOSTADAS

I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for easy meals that can be made with what we have on hand in the galley. Sort of like tossing my Foodie Dice. It’s a fun way to plan meals and is certainly a creative exercise. From time to time I toss my dice (read all about ‘playing with my food’ here) and from time to time […]

THE FORCE COCKTAIL: Enjoy This You Will

Inspired by a recipe made with Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur, I decided to make my own very easy version of ginger liqueur, partly because the recipe looked really refreshing, partly because I love the taste of ginger in Asian inspired cooking, and partly because on a boat when it’s rockin’ and rollin’ a little sip of something ginger can help to alleviate seasickness. The addition […]

LAMB PATTIES with MINTED YOGURT SAUCE

I first tried these as kabobs but they didn’t hold together very well.. possibly because of the goat cheese, so this time I made the same recipe but as patties or burgers and grilled them on the barbecue… much better… The rich taste of the lamb, the sweetness of the rasins and the spicy sauce were a winning combination…   shown here served with my […]

With this next one I’m going […]

SPICY LENTIL LIME SOUP

I was asked recently if I (AKA Galley Kat) had any vegan recipes worth sharing. While I search back through my recipe bank I thought I would share this yummy soup we enjoyed for last night’s Meatless Monday meal. My original recipe uses dry lentils which take approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hours to cook the lentils completely. But as always I try to speed things […]
