    Then again I would not be surprised to discover capsicum are actually tangerines and the U.K. calls peppers Tabascoettes or something

    I'm just joshing with you.

    Joshes?

    Does that mean, like

    Carrots?

    Or artichokes?

    Anyone got any good recipes for kangaroo steak? I bought a bunch today, and while I've got one which I've salted, peppered and I'm just going to grill, I was wondering what to do with the other ones.

    Not a recipe per se, but my favourite way of eating roo is with a juniper and pepper rub with a blueberry sauce with a side of mash and asparagus.

    @Veldrin do you have a recipe for that salmon soup?

    @taya America's test kitchen DS game?


    Made some autumn salmon the other night with roasted veggies.

    broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrots and mushrooms all chopped up nice and chunky.
    Mixed up a marinade/sauce mix with:
    honey mustard
    greek yogurt
    malt vinegar
    salt
    pepper
    crushed garlic

    spooned that over the oiled veggies and then tossed them together
    spooned the remaining marinade mix over the salmon filets

    wrapped salmon in tin foil packet and veggies in a large baking tray

    Oven baked at about 180*C/350*F for about 30ish minutes.

    served with rice.

    sooo good.

    Well, the kangaroo steak was one of the most tender pieces of meat I've ever eaten. The giant courgette was pretty good as well.

    @lonelyahava http://www.soshiok.com/recipe/salmon-belly-miso-soup this is the recipe we used as a template.

    Nat made a few adjustments to suit our tastes, such as swapping out the salmon bones stock for chicken stock and removing the enoki mushrooms/adding snow peas.

    She also used a mix of 1/3 white miso to 2/3 red miso.

    alright cooking thread

    once everyone is out of the house (because i am having a terrible morning/everything forever and i'll be fucked sideways if i'm cooking breakfast for anyone but me today) i am going to make an omelette.

    this omelette shall contain mushrooms and cheese at the very least. i intend to sautee the mushrooms, thinly sliced, in some bacon grease. NOW, the big question is this; do i add leftover kebab stuff to my omelette? we have chicken, and some bell peppers, and a little steak i think.

    kebab omelette? yae or nae?

    I like to soak it for a bit in lime, black pepper and fresh chilli before searing/grilling on high-heat. The lime can help tenderize it if it's a tough cut. But Blake's flavour combo sounds good.

    Also, a quince jelly-based marinade/rub/side-sauce/WHATEVER is always a winner.

    Just remember to cut your kebob bits extra small so you don't bite into cold meat inside your hot omelette.

    this recipe for caponata is teriffic

    It's awesome over pasta, or just on bread.

    I made this several times last year and it is indeed the light. BTW pine nuts are kind of expensive. I substituted in walnuts and tbh preferred them.

    is it actually a game? or just a resource thing? I thought it was always just a resource type thing, so I never got it.

    I used pistachios because the pine nuts cost about as much as all the other ingredients put together

    It's not a game. I didn't know what other word to use. App? Program?

    It's a cookbook where you can filter out ingredients, search for what you want, and cook the thing. It walks you through each step and lets you save notes on them. I know at least one of those games ("games") lets you change the number of servings and it recalculates the ingredients as necessary. It was neat because at that time cooking websites didn't do this. At least not to my knowledge. It's a little obsolete now.

    Some good recipes on there though.

    that's still really neat!



    I need to figure out dinners for this week.

    I'm leaning towards a lasagne or baked penne for at least one of the nights.

    I've been roasting it a LOT for a quick side dish that we both really love. 400 degree oven, 15-20 minutes.

    do you flip it halfway through?

    that sounds a lot easier than minding a skillet

    Nope I don't flip em, they get nice and browned where they touch the pan and the flower heads get just slightly charred. Bonus is I can add cauliflower, carrot sticks, chunks of radishes, cloves of garlic, sweet potatoes and so long as they're all about the same size they all cook within 20 minutes.

    Walnuts are also pretty good for you, which AFAIK, cashews aren't really.

    Anyway. Make caponata! And fresh bread! And then get some friends over and open some wine!

    Counterpoint - buy pine nuts online where they're like 15 bucks for 8oz and freeze them. Summer's coming. Peak basil pesto time.

    Even at UK prices that's literally 500% more than walnuts cost.

    Pine nuts are quite nice but they're not that nice.

    I use fresh, I think frozen would be too soft to brown properly since the freezing process damages the cells.

    Tonight is a "use up perishables in the fridge night"
    Which I think includes homemade Swedish meatballs, udon noodles and ... eggs.

    ...some kind of omelette??

    Put the meatballs on the noodles with a fried egg on top.

    That sounds like the best drunk snack, actually.

    I think I'm making omelettes myself, with some biscuits from the freezer.
