Noodle with shrimp

A simple dish maybe complicated by the fact that I made my own noodle. But a quick and easy meal none the less.

Boil the required amount of noodle, here I used an semolina and egg recipe.

The frozen shrimps were defrosted in water, a bit of chopped lettuce, mushroom and broccoli prepped. the sauce was a throw together compilation of minced garlic, ginger hoi sin , soy , and fish sauce, water, oil, shrimp sauce, sugar and rice vinegar in amounts to balance out the flavor and viscosity to your preference. A spot of habernao paste for heat.

Start by panning the noodle with a bit of oil over high heat, add the veggies, stir fry several minutes. now add the sauce to coat and cook and stir, adding a bit  shrimp water to keep things liquid without burning. Add  the shrimp and continue cooking, adding small amounts of water if necessary, keep things moving. Flame off let sit a couple of minutes and plate.

I leave the shells and tails on the shrimp for texture of the crunch.

Stew meat with lentils and spicy tomato sauce

Made with meat from the previous post. 

Cook an amount of lentils as necessary for a serving.

Reheat meat with tomato sauce and lentils. I made my batch of Sunday tomato sauce spicy with hot red pepper flakes and smoked hot pepper flakes with a small amount of vegetables, when cooked, processed with an immersion blender.

Lentils provide a alternative to pasta or rice.

Cajun sour dough bread

An interesting twist to the traditional white bread. From Breadtopia.com.

Now that the crock that was gifted to me recently sits on the countertop with sourdough starter within, It’s only natural that sourdough recipes are more frequent. I would have never though of these additions to bread but the results were good. Even better would be a grilled cheese made with the bread.

I loosely followed the recipe for Cajun 3 pepper bread.

About 1 cup of the sourdough starter added to the mix.

White flour

1/2 teaspoon smoked pepper flakes

Cornmeal

1/2 teaspoon  pepper blend

1 and 1/2 teaspoon Hawaiian sea salt

1 tablespoon  After  Death Hot Sauce

1 tablespoon garlic

1 tablespoon parsley

And yeast of course.

The finished loaf, free formed into a preheated  clay baker.

The additions to the dough…..


The final mix.


With some additional dough left over , several rolls were made.


The recipe suggested a long fermentation, a luxury I did not have it was a double rise within several hours , the dough a bit heavier than usual.

Roasted Lamb shank and veggies.

The weather is cooling somewhat, not the cold blustery wind yet but a good day for a slow roasted lamb shank and veggies to be in the oven while I finished mulching up the leaves in the front yard, run several errands and do the required Sunday routine around the house. 

Nothing exotic here as you probably guessed, fennel sweetened the dish along with the usual veggies.  I don’t get lamb that often so it was a delicious meal to draw to a close the Thankgiving weekend. You may have the Friday after Thankgiving off and when combined with the weekend a longer respite from work than Christmas.


I tried to cut the bone to fit the pan but it just fit after trimming some of the meat from the bone. The rest of it shrank. 

The ingredients are self explanatory.  A small amount of broth was added with light seasonings.

Providence , Red Fin Crudo

Tapas, small portions to pass around your table, along with a glass of wine, or cocktail. The menu, a short four page listing, additions from the web posted version, back of the house seating is close to the kitchen so your food won’t be left waiting.

The Red Fin website and Yelp reviews showcases much of the food, but of course tasting the dishes is believing.

A change from the traditional restaurant fare for me.

Sangria 
Beef Turnovers

Spanish Octopus

Chicken Wings

Paella du Huerto

Tastings I don’t usually, have seating close to the kitchen, with a few family members, a celebratory meal. Impressive.

Thanks everyone !
