SUPER YUMMY LEMONY PASTA with CHICK PEAS and SCALLOPS

Well hello there folks.  Thanks for stopping by today and do I ever have a wonderful creation for you!.  It began with a simple pasta concoction earlier this week using my new spice crush…Urfa Biber (I haven’t yet found a local source but this company provided a very good online service – click here)…it’s a Turkish spice that offers a wonderful hit of heat without all the fire.  On a 1-10 heat scale it measures in at about 4.  The dish…

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

So you’ve been entertaining this month have you?  Well, according to July stats you have.  Quite heavily in fact in the appetizer category.  We have too.  With visits from near and far and a spectacular neighbourhood house warming, I’ve been a very busy Galley Kat. Top of the list was this tasty recipe for zucchini and chicken bites.  I guess some of you must already be harvesting zucchini from your gardens.  Lucky you! Number two on your July faves was…

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

How can you resist all the fresh produce these days?  I certainly couldn’t on a recent trip to our local farmers’ market.  A big bunch of carrots, new potatoes, fresh green and yellow beans, some shelled peas made the base of one of my favourite East Coast dishes.   Hodge Podge is a sort of soup, sort of stew depending if you make it thickened or more milky (my recipe for basic hodge podge here)   Tonight though, I went…

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…

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…

SEAFOOD PAJEON (KOREAN PANCAKES) with SPICY DIPPING SAUCE

SEAFOOD PAJEON (KOREAN PANCAKES) with SPICY DIPPING SAUCE

I first had these many years ago in Korea when visiting my daughter several years ago. She lived there for a couple of years teaching English to young South Korean students and on my arrival she introduced me to Pajeon. We enjoyed then plain (just the eggs mixture with green onions) and a seafood version – my favourite.   SEAFOOD PAJEON with SPICY DIPPING SAUCE 2 cups all purpose flour 1/4 cup rice flour 1 tsp sea salt 2-1/4 cups…

BAY SCALLOPS & MUSHROOMS on CREAMY LEMON POLENTA

There really isn’t any recipe for this one but I had a hunger for scallops… Here’s what I used (quantites are variable)   For the Crumb Topping 1 cup Panko 2-3 tbsp chopped parsley 2 tbsp olive oil I like keeping this on hand in an air tight container. Since we don’t have an oven onboard it’s great to sprinkle on a stove top casserole so I can pretend it all just came out of the oven all crispy. Toss…
