CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

Hi everyone,  thanks for dropping by… I’ve been a busy busy Galley Kat this week with projects, both indoors and out, screaming to be attacked.  I did, however take the time to write up today’s offering for you… a trifecta of deliciousness… and all plant-based to boot. Tasty veggie packed burger mixture with the added protein punch of crunchy quinoa and salty halloumi….a smearing of home made hummus….and a spicy crispy slaw to round it all out. The carrot mixture…

HADDOCK MILANESE with DEVILED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

I’m back!  Did you miss me?  I’ve been so involved with my new project (details to come soon I promise) that I almost forgot about my Galley Peeps.  So sorry. I promise to be more attentive in the future.  As an apology  I’m offering a very easy and super tasty meal for you.  A two for one. The warm Brussels sprout salad could easily be a stand alone.   The crispy salty crunch of the charred sprouts leaves kept me…

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

FIG and CAMEMBERT GRILLED CHEESE with CRISPY MUSHROOM SALAD

I’m loving this sandwich/salad combo that was inspired by one of  our recent meal delivery recipes.  The sweet fig jam, ooy gooy creamy cheese and toasty crispy bread was a sensory delight.  Then you have the tangy/sweet-ish salad dressing over fresh greens.  But what drove it over the top was the addition of crispy mushrooms that have been tossed, then grilled in parmesan and bread crumbs.  Heavenly perfection. Just a few easy steps, beginning with slicing the mushrooms, then tossing…

GREEK INSPIRED MEATBALLS

GREEK INSPIRED MEATBALLS

Just because I’m not a football fan (oh the shame!) doesn’t mean I can’t offer you something yummy to nosh on during this year’s big game. Just throw meat and all  into a big bowl, dive in with both hands (properly washed of course) and squish all of those aromatic ingredients together. Serve warm with some tzatziki for dipping and a side salad. An icy crisp beer rounds off the presentaion. I’ve added a recipe for a quick Greek Salad…

WARM WILD MUSHROOM SALAD

WARM WILD MUSHROOM SALAD

At the beginning of each boating season I buy a big container of dried wild mushrooms.  They’re easy to re-hydrate for so many delicious meals.  I also grind them to add richness to sauces. Look at those rich beefy looking babies.  They’ve been soaking in water all day even though it usually takes about 15 minutes to re-hydrate. And all deep brown broth is so good saved for sauces, gravies or soups.  Please don’t toss it. If someone told me…

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

It’s been far too long since I did a Captain Cooks post and what better way to kick off summer than with one of his yummy grilling recipes.  This one is so easy and the best part for she-who-is-in-charge-of-the-galley is there were so few dishes to wash up after…just one serving bowl, our dinner plates, forks and knives.  Oh, and Captain’s wine glass.  Can’t flip without a sip. The quantity of veggies and shrimp depends entirely on your appetite but…

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

DECONSTRUCTED EGG ROLLS with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

More and more I’m appreciating the beauty of using my pressure cooker.  A little sauté time and one minute under pressure and bang we were ready to eat.  In fact, it took less time than making the sweet and sour sauce and that took just five minutes. I kept half the cabbage slaw to add after pressure to give a little extra crunch to the mixture. We do love egg rolls but that we could enjoy these minus the extra…

ASIAN CHICKEN and CABBAGE SALAD

ASIAN CHICKEN and CABBAGE SALAD

Spending as much time as we do on the boat, economy becomes a huge focus: Economy of efforts (streamlining the chores so we can be spending more time enjoying sailing) Economy of scale (keeping our enviromnment small and simple as the less we have, the less that needs our attention) Economy of resources (anyone who has spent any amount of time on a boat or in an RV knows how important conserving energy output is. There’s also water conservation, and…

ASIAN-INSPIRED MEATBALLS with CUCUMBER SALAD

‘Tis the season filled with shopping, facing crowds, traffic. The season filled with over-scheduling.  The season filled with stress for some.  Well, if I can offer you just one super easy and super delicious recipe to serve to your guests, one that can be prepared a little in advance then I am one very happy Galley Kat. This post is actually two recipes in one because sometimes Happy Hour is all that’s necessary if you offer all or most of…

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…
