Ruby Tuesday / Dinner With TCR! January 5, 2010

Let’s kill two birds with one stone, shall we?

My dinner postings have been scarce lately (I know, “Long time no sea(food!)”) and it’s officially Tuesday, so I’m calling the little bit of red in these shots sufficient to justify this dual-category post.

The ingredients:

Gigunzo Shrimp, marinated in lime juice, garlic and cayenne pepper; whole-kernel corn, fresh tomatoes, blanched and peeled, a diced Serrano chile, about a bulb of coarsly-chopped garlic and a handfull of basil, all organic, and a bag of black squid-ink pasta.

The result:

Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Veggies over Black Fettuccine.

Enjoy!  😉

After an angst-filled hiatus populated with dollar cheeseburgers and too much beer, I’m tonight not only moved to cook something good, but to share it with you.

Here’s my version of Thai cooking – Coconut Curried Shrimp and Scallops with Basil and Vegetables:

This came out really tasty, with hints of coconut milk and lemon grass bumping the wonderfully sweet scallops into orbit, and fresh-chopped basil added at the last minute.  Served over steaming Basmati rice, the entirety was most satisfying!

As the pieces of my personal life settle into something closer to predictability, I hope to be able to share more of my dinners with you nice folks.

Ciao for now.

Saw some organic black figs at the local coop and my brain spun out of control, pairing pinwheels of possible flavors with the sweet grainyness of the fleshy figs.

I settled on a combination of figs and fetta, with caramelized onions, celery and fresh basil:


folded into a quesadilla:

…and served with a salsa verde for dipping.

The feta/basil crumble on top sent it over the line into decadence.

Fig and Feta Quesadillas, coutesy of me.

Another day, another dollop.

Well, not quite a dollop, perhaps a bit more chunked up than “dollop” might suggest.

Tonight, scallops with lemon and basil, with an assortment of lightly braised peppers, served over American basmati rice:

Had to run some errands tonight, and by the time I got home , it was late and I didn’t feel like cooking.

So out came the tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and red onion, and a salad was born:

Topped with lots of fresh-ground black pepper ans a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
