Tamarind Scallops Over Soba Noodles for #FishFridayFoodies


Welcome to the inaugural Fish Friday Foodies, coordinated by Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm. She writes that in the interest of eating healthier in 2016, we'll be sharing fish and seafood recipes on the third Friday of the month. I'm in! That definitely fits into our goals of eating less meat and more fish this year.

I had initially planned to share a recipe with the seafood from our community supported fishery. But, the Precise Kitchen Elf was sick on Tuesday and I was completely befuddled. I missed my pick-up because I didn't know what day of the week it was. Boo! So, I'll write more about Real Good Fish on another post.

As Plan B, I needed something fast. This dish is on the table in less than 20 minutes. Perfect!

Ingredients



Procedure
In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Cook your soba noodles according to the package direction. Ours took 4 minutes. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

In a large, flat-bottom pan, whisk garlic, ginger, turmeric, and tamarind paste into coconut cream until well-combined. Bring to a boil. Place the scallops in the pan in a single layer and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until firm to the touch; it won't take too long. Remove the scallops from the sauce.

To serve, spoon the soba noodles in the sauce (in the pan). Add in the soy sauce and sesame oil. Toss to coat. Portion noodles into individual bowls. Top with cooked scallops. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

    1. Thanks, Sarah, Yes, it was tasty. And you can do the same thing with shrimp or even chunks of fish. So versatile!

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
