Pescado al Horno con Gambas #BakingBloggers


This month, Sue of Palatable Pastime told the Baking Bloggers that for May: "We'll be baking Spanish cuisine this month- anything goes, sweet or savory, baked goods, desserts, side dishes, entree,  you name it, as long as it is Spanish and some portion of the recipe is baked." Here's the #BakingBloggers Spanish-inspired baking party.

Pescado al Horno con Gambas

As I usually do, when I have a Spanish cooking project to research, I sent a message to good friends who are Spanish, but live here for now. Susana pointed me towards Merluza rellena de setas y gambas, but D is mushroom-averse. Weird kid! Then she gave me a link to Bacalao al horno con almejas y gambas since it didn't have mushrooms. And, as usual, I didn't follow either recipe but used it as inspiration for my own version: Pescado al Horno con Gambas, Fish in the Oven with Shrimp.The night that I served this, we paired it with leftover Attems Ramato Pinot Grigio 2017. 


Ingredients serves 4
  • potatoes, washed, dried, and thickly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer)
  • olive oil, as needed
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 4 fillets of fish (I used a local rockfish)
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1 t sweet paprika
  • 2 to 3 T white wine
  • 1 T olive oil
 Procedure

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place shrimp, garlic, sweet paprika, white wine, and 1 T olive oil in a small mixing bowl. Toss to coat and let marinate while you are cooking and preparing everything else.

Place potato slices on a parchment paper or silicone mat-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.


Remove tray from the oven and place the fish fillets on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and return the sheetpan to the oven. Roast for 4 to 5 minutes. The fish should be opaque, but not fully cooked.


Remove the shrimp from the marinade and place them on top of the fish. Return the tray to the oven and roast for another 8 to 10 minutes. Both the shrimp and the fish should be fully cooked.


Remove from the oven and serve hot.

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
