Pickled Shrimp with Pico de Gallo for #SundaySupper


Today, in honor of Memorial Day, the Foodie Stuntman - DB! -  at Crazy Foodie Stunts is hosting #SundaySupper with a red, white, and blue theme. I only managed two of the three colors. What a fun list of dishes today.

Ingredients
Pickled Shrimp

  • 1 T peppercorns (I used a mixture of black and green)
  • 2 t coriander seeds
  • 1/2 C vinegar (I used a white vinegar)
  • 1/4 C water
  • 1/2 t fleur de sel
  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 C freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 T tequila
  • 1 pound large, peeled, deveined shrimp with tails on
  • 4 to 6 serrano chiles, halved lengthwise
  • 8 to 10 kaffir lime leaves

Pico de Gallo
  • 1 T vinegar (I used a white vinegar)
  • juice from 1 orange
  • juice from 2 limes
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 banana peppers, deseeded and diced
  • 1 hatch chile, deseeded and diced
  • 1 C fresh tomatoes (I used cherry tomatoes, but use what you have)
  • 1/4 C organic cilantro leaves, chopped
  • pinch of fleur de sel
  • freshly ground pepper

Procedure
Pickled Shrimp
In a small saucepan, toast the seeds and pepercorns until fragrant, approximately 60 seconds. Add vinegar, water, salt, and garlic. Bring to a boil and let cook for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat. Pour in the tequila and lime juice. Let come to room temperature.


Pack the shrimp, peppers, and leaves into a lidded jar.


Pour vinegar mixture over the top. Add water if the shrimp is not totally submerged. Seal jar and refrigerate for at least 8 hours before serving.


Pico de Gallo
Place all of the ingredients - except for the salt and pepper - in a small mixing bowl. Blend gently and let stand for 15 minutes to blend flavors. To make this more spicy, just hotter peppers such as a habanero or jalapeno.

Serve at room temperature. This salsa stays fresh for up to 3 hours. If you refrigerate it, use quickly because it will begin to ferment.

Serve shrimp on individual plates with a topping of the pico de gallo.

  11. I never would have thought of pickling shrimp. But then again my grandmother has a recipe for a shrimp salad that's almost pickle-esque. Sounds like a great appetizer.

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

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

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
