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!

  6. That sounds fantastic - I need to try this, do you think I could do it with shrimp? Scallops and I don't always get along so well....

  7. Oh wow Camilla. Tamarind paste and sesame seeds are a great flavour enhancer and nutrition addition respectively. Thank you for sharing my #FishFridayFoodies creation on your FB page as well. Sweet surprise! :)

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
