Mariscada

Ingredients

Directions

  • Place pre-cooked frozen clam meat and Shrimp in a colander. Let them thaw and drain overnight in a fridge.
  • Cut the fresh fish into cubes and the squids into small pieces. Rinse them and place in a bowl with salt and lemon juice. Let them marinate while you cook the mussels.

Mussels (Mexilhão):

  • Rinse the frozen mussels under cool running water. The shells should close.
  • Place mussels that do not close in a bowl with cold water and agitate them to make the shell close. *Discard the shells that do not close because they can be spoiled and cause intoxication.
  • In a large saucepan, place the good mussels with 1/8 cup of water.
  • Cook them about 10 to 15 minutes or until the shells open wide apart and meat come loose.
  • Use a fork to remove the meat from shells. Discard shells, reserve the meat.
  • Combine in blender diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, minced garlic and salt.
  • Make a coarse purée.
  • In a large pan, heat the olive oil and pour the coarse purée.
  • Add the fresh fish and Squid. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Then, combine the other seafood: Shrimp, clam meat, mussels’ meat.
  • Add the coconut milk and cook for additional 15 minutes.
  • The dish should have the consistency of a soup when done.

*You can find the seafood all frozen packed in your nearest asian food market(chinatown

Buckwheat Noodle Stir-Fry

Something i tried last night for the Prince who didnt felt he should feed himself

This recipe is from Jane Brodys Good Food Book. It is delicious and not hard to make and is low fat. I have no way of calculating the fat so….lol

try it it’s quite tasty

Servings: 1 Servings

Ingredients

Instructions

Serves 4-this recipe also can be doubled, tripled or quadrupled with excellent results if you have having company. I multiply everything by 4 with good luck.

Buckwheat noodles have a wonderful flavor and texture, quite a different pasta experience. They are about $2 for a 12 oz package but worth the higher cost in terms of taste and nutrients. Find at Oriental Matkerts or natural food stores.

You can make your own hot pepper oil by slowly cooking several dried chili peppers in sesame oil, when they blacken, remove and discard them.

1. In a large kettle of boiling water, add salt if desired, cook noodles for 3 minutes or until al dente, and drain.

2. In small bowl, combine Worc., soy and sherry and set mixture aside.

3. In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 Tb of the oil and stir-fry the scallions, garlic, and red pepper for 1 minute. Add cabbage, and stir fry for another minute. Add chicken or meat and stir fry the vegatbles a minute longer. Transfer to a bowl.

4. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in wok or skillet over high heat, and add the noodles, let them brown for about 2 minutes. Reduce heat and add the broth, stir to combine well.

5. Add veggies and Worc, soy sauce mixture to the noodles and toss the ingredients well. Heat the stir-fry for about 1 minute, sprinkling with hot pepper oil just before serving.

Note***I substitute 1 cup of broccoli and zuchinni for the chicken and meat
