Posole de Camarones (Shrimp and Hominy Stew)

Have I told you that I have a girlichef crush? I love that blog and everything she cooks. I was intrigued by her recipe for Posole de Camerones last week and decided it would be the perfect New Year's Eve lunch. Of course I used it more as a point of inspiration instead of an actual recipe, making more than a couple of changes. However, I think I stayed true to the flavors. Delicious!

INGREDIENTS

Herbed Salsa Verde:
1 C arugula
1 C fresh mint leaves
1 C fresh cilantro leaves
zest of 1 orange
ground black pepper
big pinch sea salt
Lime Sea Salt:
grated lime zest
1 tepin chili
2 T coarse sea salt

Posole:
2 T olive oil
1 chopped onion
chopped celery
chopped carrots
5 C vegetable boullion
2 lbs uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 C cooked white hominy
juice from 1 orange

Additional Garnish:
sliced sundried tomatoes
anchovy filets
fresh squeezed lime juice

PROCESS


Herbed Salsa Verde:
Mince everything and set aside.


Lime Sea Salt:
Mash all of the ingredients together in a mortar and pestle. Set aside.

Posole:
Heat olive oil in a soupot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and carrots and sauté until tender. Stir in the reserved Herbed Salsa Verde, vegetable boullion, juice from the orange and bring to a boil. Add shrimp and cook till opaque.



To serve, ladle soup into flat bowls. Garnish with sun-dried tomatoes, anchovy filets, and lime salt. Squeeze fresh limes over the soup. Enjoy!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
