SRC: Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs + Bison Brewing's Saison de Wench

It's time for Group B's Secret Recipe Club May revealThis month I was assigned to Secrets from the Cookie Princess, but one of the other bloggers needed help finishing her assignment and I happily took on A Spoonful of Thyme as well.

Kathy is the blogger behind A Spoonful of Thyme and this is the first time I've gotten to explore her blog. She's been part of a gourmet group for thirty-three years. Wow! So many of her recipes were intriguing -  Red Wine Pot Roast with Honey and Thyme, Fiddlehead Fern, Heirloom Tomato Marmalade, and Plum Tart with Ginger Crust.  

But, as I was limited on time, I picked her Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs. I made a few adaptations, swapping out capers and pickles for marinated artichoke hearts, subbing a different mustard and using the herbs that I had in my fridge. But the smoked salmon is truly the star of this dish. They were the perfect first course for my Mothers' Day feast. Thanks for the inspiration, Kathy. Lynne, hope you're on the mend!

  • 8 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1 t mustard (I used spicy mustard)
  • 4 oz. smoked salmon, chopped - set some aside for garnish
  • 2 T marinated artichokes, chopped
  • fresh parsley
  • fresh carrot greens
  • freshly ground pepper
  • fleur de sel

Halve the eggs lengthwise and pop the egg yolks into a small bowl. Mash the yolks. Stir in the mayonnaise and mustard. Taste and adjust the mayo and mustard as desired. Add the artichokes, salmon and herbs.  Stir and mix together gently.  Taste again and adjust, if needed.

Spoon or pipe the mixture into the egg white halves.  Garnish with a piece of salmon. Sprinkle with chopped herbs after plating them.

I paired them with Bison Brewing's Saison de Wench! Here are my tasting notes on that beer. It's amazing! Cheers!

Here's what the rest of the creative cooks in Group B made...

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
