Vietnamese food is such a vibrant cuisine. It is one of my favourites. It is homey and comfortable; yet, it can be so complex. Sometimes, it is hard to think outside of a bowl of pho noodles. Kim Thuy’s cookbook Secrets of my Vietnamese Kitchen […]

CARAMEL PORK RECIPE – THIT RAM | VIETNAMESE CUISINE

CARAMEL PORK RECIPE – THIT RAM | VIETNAMESE CUISINE

This caramelized pork dish is perfect served over a snowy bowl of jasmine rice. The Stir-fry chunks of pork belly, chilli and green onions in the wok makes it very aromatic. For a lighter though no less delicious alternative, consider lean pork tenderloin instead. And also, keep a bottle of xo chilli sauce nearby. This Caramel Pork Recipe comes from Kim Thuy’s newest cookbook, Secrets From My Vietnamese Kitchen.

BEST Vietnamese Fresh Oyster Banh Mi Sandwich recipe from THE GREAT SHELLFISH COOKBOOK REVIEW Matt Dean Pettit NOMSS.COM SEAFOOD RECIPE BLOG

THE GREAT SHELLFISH COOKBOOK BY MATT DEAN PETTIT REVIEW

  • Author: Matt Dean Pettit
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 2 person 1x
  • Category: Seafood
  • Cuisine: Vietnamese

Description

Who doesn’t love a good banh mi sandwich? Living in a multicultural city like Toronto, where we have a great Vietnamese community, I’ve had my fair share of these sandwiches. Simply put, it’s a Vietnamese submarine sandwich loaded with at on of flavor and great spices. Oysters aren’t a traditional ingredient here, but I think they work perfectly.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 oysters (see note)
  • 4 Tbsp (60 ml) full-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) Sriracha hot sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 baguettes
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) thinly sliced English cucumber (skin on)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) carrots, cut into matchstick pieces then measured
  • 1 red Thai chili, thinly sliced
  • Finely chopped cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Using a brush or a clean steel wool pad, scrub the grit from each of the oyster shells and rinse them under cold, running water. Grasp an oyster in one hand, cup-side down, insert an oyster knife into the opening, and run it from top to bottom of the hinge, which should open it. If the hinge doesnt open, try giving the knife a small twist in the center of the hinge. Using your fingers, remove the top shell of each oyster. Slip the knife under the oyster meat to loosen the lower adductors, allowing you to remove the meat and discard the liquor. Gently clean off any dark parts around the oyster meat. Set the oyster meat aside on a plate, uncovered, in the refrigerator. Discard the shells.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and Sriracha hot sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside at room temperature.
  3. Slice each baguette into two pieces, and then slice those pieces in half horizontally, to make small submarine sandwiches.
  4. Lay out two bread bottoms and top each one with cucumber slices, carrots, and slices of chili. Top with the raw oyster meat, a drizzle of Sriracha mayo, and garnish of cilantro. Cover with the bread tops. Repeat for the second sandwich.

Notes

When consuming raw seafood, make sure you’re buying it from a reputable source. With raw oysters in particular, they should smell fresh and like the sea. If they smell off, toss ’em.

recipe from THE GREAT SHELLFISH COOKBOOK REVIEW Matt Dean Pettit NOMSS.COM SEAFOOD RECIPE BLOG

Matty’s Spanish Vacay Paella

  • Author: Matt Dean Pettit
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 2-4 people
  • Category: Seafood
  • Cuisine: Seafood

Description

I fell in love with paella when I first traveled to Spain. Paella originates from the beautiful city of Valencia, on the southeastern coast. Almost every restaurant there has their own individual family recipe for paella. You’ll find seafood, chicken, duck, rabbit, snail, and vegetable paella. The key to cooking a great paella (which is kind of like risotto) is to not overcook the rice. Keep an eye on it as you cook, and be sure to stir. And enjoy! Or, as the Spanish say, buen provecho!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 mL) Spanish or Arborio rice
  • 1 lb (450 g) live mussels
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) shrimp, spot prawns, or tiger shrimp, raw with shells on (see note)
  • 1 Tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, finely diced 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) green beans, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces then measured
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) capers
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) dried saffron
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili flakes (or chili powder)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water 2 raw or frozen and thawed lobster tails, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sweet paprika for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place the Spanish rice in a bowl of cold water to soak for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Clean the mussels under cold, running water. Remove any hair connected to the mussels and discard any mussels that are completely or even slightly open. Set aside.
  3. Run your choice of shrimp, prawns, or tiger shrimp under cold, running water to clean them. Set aside in the fridge. You’ll be cooking these with the shells on, as thats where the flavor is.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft and translucent. Add the green beans and tomatoes and stir well to combine. Add the capers, saffron, cinnamon, and chili flakes. Stir again to combine and coat the vegetables. Let them cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, drain the rice. Add the rice and wine to the vegetables and bring to a boil. Add the stock and water as well. Using a wooden spoon, stir constantly as it returns to a boil to ensure that the rice is fully covered in sauce. Once the mixture is boiling, turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered and stirring frequently, for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the rice is al dente.
  6. Add the shrimp, mussels, and lobster to the skillet, cover, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the seafood is cooked and opaque, and most of the mussels are open. Discard any mussels that do not open.
  7. Sprinkle the mixture with sweet paprika while its still in the skillet.
  8. Serve immediately in bowls.

Notes

If you’d like to use tiger shrimp in this recipe, make sure to ask your fishmonger where they were sourced. Look for Ocean Wise or MSC-certified tiger shrimp.

Day 4  – Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky by Karlynn Johnston | 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

Day 4 – Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky by Karlynn Johnston | 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

and a Blue Prairie Sky by Karlynn Johnston Cookbook

Sundays are best for rolling around in bed, going to church and for baking sweet treats with a glass of milk with ice cubes! Even better if the milk itself is grass fed and hormone free too! To be honest, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth – tho I enjoy a chewy chocolate chip cookie and carrot cake from time to time. Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky by Edmonton blogger Karlynn Johnston pulls some serious heart strings with stories and recipes that points to Old-Fashioned desserts. If you’ve been a fan of www.thekitchenmagpie.com you will be excited for recipes like Banana Cream Pie, Chocolate Cherry Whipped Shortbread, Doughnuts and Salted Buttered Pecans.

That being said, Karlynn brings back the Flapper Pie unique to Alberta and even more so in the farms of Manitoba of our grandmother’s generations. What once was a staple in prairie kitchens is a rarity. My parents never heard of it. My friends never seen it. So it will be interesting to make this hard to master graham crumb crust pie filled with decadent creamy custard filling and topped with meringue.

 

FLAPPER PIE- THE LOST PRAIRIE PIE

by Karlynn Johnston
serves 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
INGREDIENTS
  • Crust:
  • 1¼ cups graham crackers
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • dash of cinnamon
  • Filling:
  • 2½ cups of milk
  • ½ cup of white sugar
  • ¼ cup of cornstarch
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • Meringue Topping:
  • 3 egg whites
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • ¼ tsp of cream of tartar
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Mix all the crust ingredients together, save about 2 tbsp to the side and press the rest into a 10 inch pie plate, in the bottom and up the sides. Refrigerate.
  2. Combine the filling ingredients together and cook on a medium heat until it boils and thickens, making sure to stir constantly! Set aside to cool while you make the meringue.
  3. Beat the meringue ingredients together until they form stiff peaks.
  4. Pour the filling into the crust and top with the meringue, making beautiful little spikes that will brown up all lovely on top! Sprinkle the rest of the crumbs on the top and slide into a 350 degree oven.
  5. Bake until the meringue browns like below, around 10 minutes but watch it carefully! All ovens are different!
  6. Cool in the fridge and eat the same day. This isn’t a pie that is going to last a few days, meringue topped pies get slimy between the layers. This is best made mere hours before serving.
