I know I've posted versions of this before, but it is a favourite, and I never really make it exactly the same each time.

 

Lemon and coriander pork with chilli and garlic.

This time I paired it with a salad which I'm going to call "basil salad" with tomato and onion, rather than a tomato and onion salad with basil. I have a basil glut and I need to use it up before the season is over. Here is the sald. dressed with EVOO and lemon juice, sea salt and black pepper.

Not "directly". French borrowed it from Portuguese as "marmelade" and English borrowed it from the French. All the earliest recorded usages in English use the French or the English spellings.

 

 

Who knows (or cares) but my peeps from 1700s high German used it. No hard "a" as they do in the US. When folks toss around jam or jelly I still have to think what they mean to say.

Oh, but this brings up different question for which I was about to start a separate thread!

 

Back a while I purchased a lovely boneless roast of pork shoulder from amazon.  There was more meat than I envisioned.  I cubed the meat, bagged the excess, and then froze it.  Now I have a bag of pork shoulder cubes.  Can I grill them??  Or should I braise or anova them?  Is pork shoulder suitable for dry heat?

 

 

 

You could do a long braise or a longer annova, but the IP would be my go to.  You can turn them into carnitas, chile verde or char siu.  Have posted recipes for carnitas and char siu with the IP and subsequent broiling in the IP thread. 

 

Pork shoulder can can get dry heat but low and slow. Since it’s already cubed it will cook too fast and not be tender.

Not everyone has an IP.

 

The bulk of this batch of cubes had become chile verde.  I was hoping for something different.  Been a while since I've made char siu.

Dinner that almost didn't happen.

I was exhausted after work.  I loaded the dishwasher, started with the chicken, and enjoyed a well earned nap.  Then after a couple hours reading food porn in a zombie like condition I decided dinner was going to be a can of soup.  However after another hour of mai tai and peanuts I was feeling refreshed and pressed on ahead.

 

Fried chicken thigh has become my favorite chicken preparation.  And unlike pan frying, deep frying on the Paragon does not leave the kitchen floor a mess.

Dinner was easy. We started at 5pm eating snacks and leftover ham and cheese with beer. Presunto is Portuguese equivalent of Jamón. Frango assado is roast chicken over charcoals.

Then big prawns and bitter leaves after a few beers. I got enough prawns for lunch later today because the town shuts down on Sundays and most restaurants are also closed on Mondays. Piri-piri sauce is OK but not as hot as the fresh stuff I got at the market the other day.

One last paper cup of wine then we had to flee from the smokers (they are every.where. aren't they). The sun was already well below the horizon behind me.

How interesting.  Can we see this fryer?

Tofu ran-dang, with toasted coconut.

Corn with coconut cream, Thai curry paste. lime zest, peanuts.

Green beans. Lemon grass rice.

 

 

Interesting. For some unknown reason I have done corn (which I love) with a curry paste.  And I like green beans alongside. Thanks for the inspiration.
