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…

SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

SAILOR’S CASSEROLE

Recently when doing some searching for more easy onboard recipes using Jiffy Cornbread Mix (recipe here) 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 her weight.     SAILOR’S CASSEROLE 1…

EASY SEAFOOD STEW

EASY SEAFOOD STEW

We had been preparing for our summer departure and I wanted to offer something yummy but I have also been trying to keep my onhand fresh ingredients to a minimum. And there were so many other things going on in our lives at the time that I also didn’t want to spent hours shopping, preparing and cooking. This recipe was ridiculously simple and…

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 cold…

Snails are not everyone’s cup of tea but one little can easily feeds two of us and it’s not expensive …and yes I brought two cans onboard with us this summer The first was for a very good Snails Tapas (recipe here). The second can was of course my contingency. One is good then two must be better. So here is the second in my series of End of Season Galley Clean Out Recipes… …just a…

STORMS and TASTY LEMON, BASIL & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO

Now that I have perfected my basic Risotto on a Boat and since I have some shrimp in the cooler and a beautiful bouquet of basil begging to be used… (a little boat alliteration) …and to give the barbecue(er) a break. …and since this rainy thunder stormy day has cooled things off I can afford to heat up the cabin a bit… LEMON, BASIL, & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO (refer back to my Risotto on a Boat for quatities and…
