She Cooks In A Kitchen, Under The Sea

Morning! How’s your week going so far? Thank you all for your insightful comments on killing (or not killing) the food we eat. A bit of controversy on the issue was to be expected, but I appreciate your keeping things respectful, as always.

Our lil’ guys didn’t go in vain, either. In addition to the boiled lobster we enjoyed, we made lobster fra diavolo:   


Lobster “benedict”: eggs cooked over medium in leftover fra diavolo sauce, sprinkled with sharp cheddar and eaten open-faced on an English muffin.


And yesterday, for my fancypants lunch, lobster salad. I tossed some plain cooked lobster in lemon juice and a little Goddess dressing, and plated it with spinach, radishes, green beans and peppers.   


And for the rest of the seafood? In addition to the Mussels in Thai Red Curry, we made a scampi loosely based on this recipe. Instead of shrimp, we used scallops and clams, and added a whole bunch of lemon zest.   


Neither of us had ever cooked clams before, so we were a little bit surprised to see this long, black part protruding from some of the shells as they steamed. After looking around on Google and seeing similar parts on other clams, we decided they were edible. (Our search also turned up some pretty funky things!)


It’s possible we might be seafood-ed out. But then again, I did have this beauty of a sandwich last night for dinner: smoked salmon and blueberry goat cheese on a pretzel roll (recent Whole Foods find) with radishes and steamed asparagus.   


Don’t worry, though: I’m not about to change my blog’s name to LilFishPatch. I tried a few new veggie recipes as well: 3 Ingredient Quiche (substituting pumpkin for sweet potato.) This stuff is great with chipotle hot sauce and barbeque seasoning!


And ever the kale fan, this Sunshine Salad, adding a liberal amount of vegetables.

    Man SO jealous of all your lobster escapades! Killing lobsters is certainly creepy but, I must selfishly admit, the meat makes it so worth it.

  • oh man! so much seafood! im getting hungry reading this!!

    also , it has been so long since I’ve had smoked salmon!! My fav. sandwich with my mama was going to Bruegger’s Bagels and getting pumpernickel bagels with smoked salmon, tomatoes, and lettuce! delicious and simple!!

  • Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but
    I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a
    very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Excellent work!
