Spot Prawn Experiment Night:




First Course: Simply boiled.
Lo family recipe for the vinaigrette. Raw shallots, raw garlic, lemon, japanese rice vinegar, mirin, soy and garlic chili paste and a touch of korean sesame oil.




Second Course: Agedashi Tofu
Just giving the peeps a chance to sort their stomachs out until it starts getting real.




Third Course: Sashimi. Shredded daikon and shiso from my garden.
Sometimes, simple is best.




Fourth Course: 椒鹽 Fried Heads
Traditional Chinese recipe with Szechuan peppercorns, jalapenos and garlic.
Toasted and ground the Szechuan peppercorns myself.
Can't let those heads go to waste.




Fifth Course: Spot Prawn Bisque (not pictured)
Just imagine a less red lobster bisque.
It tasted ok, but looks-wise, it's nothing special.
Just some soup to gulp down.







Sixth Course: Spot Prawn Ceviche
Featuring random stuff from the garden.Chervil, golden lemon thyme, rosemary flowers, so micro fennel and cilantro and chive flowers.
Also used radish, Japanese nori paste, and some roasted garlic olive oil I made.




Seventh Course: Spot Prawn Tagliatelle
Scratch made the tagliatelle. Spot prawns cooked with garlic and marsanne. Tossed it all with fresh tomatoes and basil.





Hooray for derping around.

Spectacular as always. I wrote down a good few thoughts for next weekend. I left it in my pants at work though. I'll send you some ideas tomorrow.

a man needs to eat dinner...




Tagliatelle marinara with and blade steak (Pasta and marinara from scratch)
Nothing wrong with dried pasta, but making your own pasta sauce is sooooo much better than from a jar. I just used canned tomatoes, garlic, shallots basil and some olive oil.
Blade steak, cheap cut of meat that's got good marbling and tender as long as you're willing to trim off a bit of silver skin.
Pan-seared, salt and pepper and rested. Simple is good.






Mushroom ragout, a poached egg, 24 hour slow roasted cherry tomatoes on the vine over creamy polenta
Mushrooms were caramelized with with garlic, shallots and thyme. White wine and cream to finish. Some Shaved parmigiano-regiano.
Stole the concept from Working Class Foodies.

In all seriousness, my apologies.

No problem. I just wanted to use the word "virility".

The last one isn't one of mine. Saw that you credited me on FB for it.

Saganaki
It's a Greek cheese. A fellow RS member taught me this little recipe.
Egged, dredged in flour, fried a little on both sides.
I hit with a bit of white wine (don't have ouzo or pernod handy) and lemon juice.
Dried oregano from Greece.




Kalamari
I seem to make this fairly often for my friends.
Somewhat labor intensive, but it's pretty cheap to make.
This was about $2.50 worth of squid.


And the Tzaziki to go with it...



I wanted to re-attempt a sandwich I made quite a while back.
Duck Club House


Bacon fat, Roasted garlic, and duck fat mayo.



Got lazy, didn't want to wait to roast the skin, so I just deep fried it.



Drizzling some winter honey on the duck breast



Duck Club House
Pan seared duck breast
Double smoked bacon
Duck crackling
Tomato
Iceberg lettuce
Bacon fat, roasted garlic and duck fat mayo (a very generous amount)
Some kinda meh-bread from Safeway (I hate their bakery), but toasted with bone marrow tallow. <--- Hooray for keeping random fats lying around the house.
Hoisin sauce.








Almost Vegetable Soup
Just using up whatever scraps I had in the fridge.
Cabbage, tomato, onion, shallots, celery, yukon gold potatoes, caramelized mushrooms, a jalapeno and good amount of ginger.
I thought it would need extra flavor depth and used chicken stock, but apparently, totally not needed.
Finished with some roasted garlic olive oil and parsley from the garden.

Pan seared chicken breast with mushrooms and white wine
Roasted tomatoes and a bit of salad






I'll see your kale chips and raise you Deep Fried Kale.
Since you remove more water, you can eat more kale.
Healthier option?






Duck confit

Oh, and some bag slaw dressed with a simple vinaigrette, because lazy.





Bacon





Roast chicken with sage butter over root veggies





Mussels
Steamed in white wine with shallots, garlic, fennel and cream.






Taiwanese Salty Peppery Chicken Nuggets
Thai basil






From my garden,
Gorgeous and healthy romaine.
Yay caesar salads!!!





Roasted garlic korokke
Thai yellow coconut curry
Lemongrass and cilantro oil






Live uni
Served with a bit of toasted nori.
Sometimes, simple is best.





Roasted chicken sandwich with bacon
A generous dose of scratch made roasted garlic aioli






Stir fried sambal pork with start anise
Quick pickled cucumber salad






Multiple lobsters poaching in garlic butter





Butter poached lobster

Chawanmushi
I made a couple different batches.
Working on different fillings. The crispness of romaine works surprisingly well.












An assortment of house made sausages from International Sausage House.
Simply grilled over a wood fire.

Maybe I should just ask to get them merged?
Can a mod do that?
