Dinner 2020

Mixed grill:  that is dry aged ribeye and Australian rib lamb chop.  Baked potato, salad.  I tremble to mention Momofuku.  Dinner was supposed to have been masala dosa.  However after 12 hours my dosa batter has not risen.  Somehow I doubt it will.  But I shall give it overnight.

Soup of roasted sweet potato, pumpkin and carrots; parsley root, Thai red curry paste, loads of ginger, star anise, bay, coriander seeds. Fished with coconut cream and pumpkin seeds.

Orange salad with chili, scallions, fish sauce, dark sugar, garlic, peanuts.

One more.  An attempt at Salmon ala Troisgrois.    OK......I learned a lesson.  The Sorrel Sauce was fantastic.  But I overcooked the salmon.  Even though it was in a pan for less than a few moments, you really have to go quickly and plate.

@weinoo, I toss them in a bag with seasoned cornstarch, shake, most of it off,   and bake on parchment paper at 450°F in the CSO on the Bake Steam setting.  Turning once half way through.

They don't need to be marinated.    Yesterdays were seasoned with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.   Sometimes I rub them first with fresh garlic before tossing with the cornstarch.   Cornstarch makes for the best light crispy coating. 

 

Which CSO are you using @Ann_T?

My brother gave me a sous vide for Christmas andI have used it once: to pasteurize eggs for a salad dressing.  I cook my meat (that I don't eat) your way 🙂

 

So tonight, for the first time that I can recall, my husband and I were alone for dinner on Saturday night.  I usually do not take pictures on weekends because I normally have anywhere from 6-12 people here eating and everyone has stuff they will or will not eat. I admit I am part of the problem.  I will not eat most meat.  But tonight, it was just me and hubby.  And we still could not agree! So, choose your dinner!   Waygu flat iron steak with fries and marinated tomato salad

Or, blackened shrimp with remoulade and same sides

I knew that. 😊

@Owtahear Beautifully cooked steak. And roasted potatoes.

I made chicken pot pies for dinner last night.

Before leaving for work I poached the chicken breasts and then cooked the vegetables in the broth.

Used the broth and heavy cream to make the sauce.

When I got home from work, all I had to do was make the pastry and get the pies into the oven.

Served with garlicky green beans.

My favourite Chicken Pot pie recipe.

 

I used the last of the Anson Mills Pastry flour I received in a Secret Santa gift.

All you had to do....LOL that would take me all day and in the end I'd still end up using Pillsbury pre-made that I have in the fridge 🤣

 

Found some canned clams--like a case of 12 that I bought for some reason lol--so clam chowder and cheese toasties

This looks so good. Care to share the recipe? I have one single can of clams but then there’s only me. I’m OK with short division.

A couple pats of butter in the pot and cook diced (or chopped in my case because I have no patience to cut small things lol) onion, garlic, celery and carrots until soft. Add the juice from the can of clams and a cup or two of chicken broth.  Add a bay leaf.  Add peeled diced (chopped lol) potatoes or non-peeled diced red potatoes, cover and cook until potatoes until they are done.  Turn heat down very low or remove from heat and add a cup or so of heavy cream and the clams.  Season with salt and pepper as you go to your liking.  A sprinkle of bacon crumbles is good on top or some parsley or both.  I didn't have the energy to make bacon lol.
