Frutti di Mare Marinati

I had initially planned to share a recipe for baby octopus ceviche appetizer, but then I received a lovely package of jarred Italian goodies from one of our event sponsors - Cento - and knew that I wanted to make larger dish featuring the capers, artichoke hearts, and roasted peppers. Che squisito!

Frutti di Mare Marinati is a simple dish of seafood "cooked" by the acid in lemons and tossed with some already prepared veggies. It's so easy, but it requires incredibly fresh ingredients. I usually ask my fish monger which is the best choice for ceviche that day. On the day I made this, he offered me big, beautiful prawns, some scallops, and petrale sole. 


Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound prawns, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 pound scallops, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 C petrale sole, cut into 1 to 2" pieces
  • 6 to 8 fresh lemons, juiced (I used Meyer lemons from a tree in my mom's yard) + more for serving
  • 12 ounces quartered, marinated artichoke hearts 
  • 6 ounces marinated roasted red peppers 
  • 2 T capers
  • 2 T sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • freshly ground salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 to 3 T thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • 1 to 2 T olive oil
  • kale leaf for garnish, optional


Procedure
Place the raw seafood pieces in a glass dish and cover them with lemon juice. The seafood should be completely covered by juice.

Cover the dish and place it in the refrigerator. Let the seafood marinate or "cook" in the lemon juice for at least 4 hours; I left mine for about 8 hours.


Once the seafood is "cooked" in the juices, drain the lemon juice, but reserve 2 T of the juice. Place the seafood into a large mixing bowl and add in the artichoke hearts, roasted pepper, capers, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil. Add in olive oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately or return to the refrigerator until ready to serve.

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!

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

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
