The crab cakes from John Currence's Pickles, Pigs and Whisky.

 

DSC_0004_zps10a002b7.jpg

 

A male mud crab. Mud crabs are among the best of the locally available crustaceans. Purchased live, of course. The guy that tied the claws didn't do a very good job: most of the crabs in the crate were happily snapping away at the lady in charge of the crustacean station. Luckily she had some blue rubber gloves to protect her fingers from a few hundred pounds of pressure.

 

DSC_0016_zps97bb7cc6.jpg

 

This one kilo crab produced about 250 grams of meat.

 

DSC_0026_zps9e41cbd3.jpg

 

The finished crab cakes. They were very good.

And, for tomorrow, Thomas Keller's recipe for pork trotters.

Anna N, indeed those are broccoli stems. 

 

I pan fried them in oyster sauce and some beet juice. 

 

I am puzzled why people often discard broccoli stems. They are so delicious. I guess they are the same people who throw away beet greens.

I know in GB they make 'mushy peas'   ive never had these and don't quite know what they are ...

 

canned peas are 'Revolutionary Mushy Peas'

 

must have gravy with them .....

 

Mushy peas are a traditional accompaniment to fish and chips, it's basically what it sounds like, mashed up peas with some butter, salt, pepper and mint. Think of it like a very coarse pea puree.

The pea puree is made from dried and rehydrated marrowfat peas.

I decided to save the trotters for tomorrow. Tonight it was barbecue chicken: bone-in thighs hit with a dry rub, smoked as low as my gas-powered smoker will go for about 90 minutes, brushed with sauce (I used Rufus Teague) and then returned to the smoker, albeit at higher temperature.

photos are hit and miss but, last night cooked dinner for some family.. 

 

Started with a vegetable soup.  Swiss chard, collard greens, leftover endive, tomatoes, onions, chickpeas and a two links of smoked andouille.  Served with bruschetta topped with salt packed anchovies mixed with parsley, olive oil and lemon juice.  And angulas in olive oil.

Next up was salt cod brandade.  baked, topped with bread crumbs, served with parsley salad with capers, onions and lemon.

 

This was a recreation of the dish as, I  took a photo with the leftover salad and an leftover gratin. 

 

11395894814_0137380a83_z.jpg

 

Coq au vin as the main.  It was pretty cool, Donnie Brasco was playing last night as we were making dinner.  A punch of salt Donnie.

It's been pretty chilly for us folks in the Florida panhandle so comfort food is in order. Lentils and lamb with sun dried tomatoes, parsley and green onion.  The french lentils were cooked in turkey broth and seasoned pretty aggressively with a harissa blend from World Spice with additional coriander, cumin and fenugreek.

Roast chicken. The rub was a mixture of salt, pepper, half-sharp paprika, toasted ground Sichuan peppercorns and star anise. Served with bread from Poilâne (an early Xmas present).

chicken looks perfect

 

Flounder.  I bought a whole guy and discovered there was roe. Soaked the filets briefly in warm milk, dipped in flour.  cooked in butter.   Made a brown butter and caper sauce.  Simple green beans boiled, then salted, then lemon'd.

radicchio, blue cheese, pickled onions and lettuce.
