Thanks!! Probably been making that once or twice a year for what seems like forever. One I really enjoy. Just something about pressing extra Fennel Seeds into the meat and grilling it that really kicks it up a bit.

Saw this yesterday and headed over to our famous Claro's Italian Market for some of their fresh italian sausage they bring out every Christmas. They have it all the time but they bring it out in 5 lb bags for Christmas. Got some Cenzano tomatoes and anchovies too. Now to figure out what all to make.

This was good! Real good if you are a Shrimp lover.

Appetizer:





Jack Daniels Cold Smoked Salmon Carpaccio with Edamame

Main Course:








Vietnamese Shrimp Fried Rice


Ingredients:

• 2 cups cooked Jasmine Rice, left out for a few hours
• 1lb Jumbo Shrimp (15-20 to the pound)
• 2 Tablespoons oil
• 1 Carrot (Fine diced)
• 4-5 Green Onions (course chopped)
• 2-3 Cloves Garlic (crushed and chopped)
• 1 Teaspoon chopped fresh Ginger
• 1/2 cup fine diced Red Pepper
• 1/2 cup Peas
• 2 eggs (Salt and Pepper for Eggs)
• 1 Tablespoon Butter
• 1/2 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
• 3 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
• Pinch of ground White Pepper
• Slight hint of Chinese Five Spice
• Handful Chopped Cilantro
• Shiracha hot chili to taste
• 1 Lime (Optional)

Directions:



This is a good dish to make for company as most of the work is done ahead of time such as dicing the veggies and par cooking the shrimp. Then all it is assemble and heat at the end.

Steam rice and set aside. Using a large Wok add water and boil Shrimp for 2 minutes (do not overt cook). Drain shrimp and remove the shells/clean if necessary. Fine dice all veggies and set aside. Add Wok back to burner, turn heat to medium/low, melt butter and scramble eggs. Set aside eggs and chop into small pieces. Adjust heat to high and when Wok starts to smoke, add 1 tablespoon oil. Add Carrots, Green Onion, Garlic, Ginger and quickly cook. Add remaining tablespoon oil to pan, Red Pepper and Peas (in that order) and cook till warmed through. Add Egg to pan and quickly add spices/fish sauce, Rice and mix through, add Shrimp and mix through. Taste and adjust seasoning while adding hot sauce and lime to taste. Let pan sit for 30 seconds on high heat to crunch the rice on the bottom. (do not do too long or you will burn the rice) Serve immediately when mixture get hot.

Grilled Eggplant, grilled Zucchini, assembled and baked till the cheese melts. Or so I think! Another reverse engineering project but it was quite good. Got some Brie to throw on top that I think will be good. You guys need to get more into the side dish's. To me they make the meal.

While looking for Steaks n Lobster in our freezer, found two packets of hamburger paddies so ended up just doing another burger last night instead. Just trying to get rid of a few as I seem to be overstocked not realizing it plus I still had a couple of cheap buns still left. So. Still love my fries. Timed it and it took 50 minutes in the oil but do they ever come out perfect. Hell yes!!

Denny What cut of meat is that?^^^^^^^

The truth is I'm not exactly sure. This was lunch at the mansion we stayed in outside Buenos Aires. They cut their steaks a bit differently and I really don't know what it was. Guessing it was more of a Sirloin. Their beef has a bit of a different taste (better) than what we get here. More of a beefy taste that is hard to explain.

Here is the problem again. When I go to make Potato Soup I always end up putting seafood in it making a Chowder. Guess my problem is I like Chowders too.

Not a problem as in Merry Christmas! Keep in mind when I post things basically I'm reverse engineering a recipe as most of the time I cook on autopilot winging it as I go. Which means the amounts are my best guess but should be pretty close. Simply made this enough times that I don't even have to think about it so taste and adjust accordingly. I do.


Clam and Shrimp Chowder

· 1 lb shrimp
· 2 lb clams (whole frozen)
· 1 can of whole Clams
· 2 medium large potatoes 1/4th to 1/2 inch diced
· 4-6 ounces bacon chopped
· 3 stalks celery medium diced
· Large or two smaller sweet onion medium diced
· Garlic powder to taste
· Celery seed
· Fresh ground pepper to taste
· Salt to taste
· Chopped parsley
· Chicken broth concentrate (the stuff that comes in a plastic jar to make broth)
· 2-3 cups milk
· 1 cup heavy cream
· 1/2 stick of butter
· 1/3-1/2 cup flour (Butter and flour for making roux)


Dice potatoes and put into pot to boil with salted water. When done, drain and set aside. In a separate pan (while potatoes are cooking) render bacon down so juices are clear scrapping the bottom deglazing making sure you're getting all the bacon flavor.


While bacon is rendering, medium dice celery and put into pan with bacon using a medium low heat. Add medium chopped onion. Add some salt, pepper, celery seed, most of the chopped parsley (save some for garnish) and garlic powder. Cook for about 15 minutes making sure the celery is soft (Don't want no crunchy celery now do we!!)


Add potatoes and just cover with chicken broth bringing to a simmer. Add milk, cream, seafood and turn heat up to medium stirring to make sure nothing sticks.


Put butter in bowl, place in microwave for 30 seconds. Add flour and with a small whisk make a roux. (If you want the chowder thicker, use 1/2 cup flour). Add mixture to chowder. Bring to a simmer making sure the shrimp are fully cooked, do final adjustment on seasoning and you’re done.

Serve with a salad and warm bread.

It will! We should be talking to all the in laws later today in GR. Remember pretty vividly getting off a plane at X-Mas time in the Zoo and it was 2 degrees with the wind blowing like hell. Had to ask myself...... Why in the hell did I spend money to leave high 50's in Texas to freeze my ass off? From then on, if they wanted to see us, they needed to get in a plane and go somewhere that has decent weather.

After having it at a restaurant....a rather tiny portion for about $17...

I made Salmon Spread..

8oz cream cheese.
8-12 oz can of sockeye salmon (i left out any gross slimy pieces, bone, etc...) I like around 11 oz.
1.5 teaspoons of dill
3 good dashes of Worstersher
2 squirts of a bbq sauce for a "smoke" flavor
1 teaspoon of parsley
Squirt of lemon juice
A dash of something that has pickle flavor (capers, diced pickels, olives)
fresh red onion chopped as fine as posible


we devoured this on grilled pita bread... insane.

2 questions.....

I made this to be in the fridge overnight, diced up the salmon and, added it to the spread.

1-- Did you make up the spread and simply add salmon slices to the top?

2-- When you say dill, do you mean fresh dill sprig's, dry dill leave's or, dill seed?
