After a 9-hour marination–plus a few slices of sashimi–the succulent fillets hit the piping hot oil searing the skin. Immediately after hitting the pan, the heat was reduced to low and the salmon cooked for ~5min (flipping-over for the last 15s). Continue reading

Talk about four tiers of heaven! Chocolate Yummy: Vanilla Cream Cheese spread across a Roasted Pecan Shortbread Crust, topped with dark chocolate custard and adorned with Freshly whipped cream and more chocolate. What a perfect wrap-up to Charlie’s farewell dinner of century egg-chicken congee paired with lemon-honey ginger beer.
Here’s the link to the recipe on Charlie’s blog:
Had a blast making this simple but irresistibly delicious treat from Austria for Mom’s birthday dinner party.
Stem/clean some Cremini/Portobello Mushrooms. (They’re actually the same mushroom, just different ages!)
Arrange Shrooms on a plate and cover with a bowl.
Microwave for 30-45 sec.
Fill warmed Mushrooms with Basil Pesto and, if on-hand, top it off with a candied Jalapeño.
Again, cover the plate and microwave for another 1.5-2 minutes at about 1000MW.
For additional umami, garnish with roasted seaweed (Kizami Nori きざみのり).
Fill a skillet with a 1/2 inch of water, add a splash of citrusy vinegar — Calamansi Balsamic was on-hand for this instance– or a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Bring to a boil over medium / 60% heat.
With scales down, cook the catfish for 4-5 min in the uncovered skillet.
Flip the fish, add spinach atop, and cover. Cook another 3-4 min, or until the fish and greens are cooked. There should only be a little liquid remaining.
Remove from heat.
Using two turners, flip the fish and leaves onto a plate so the fish has a vibrant bed of green.
Drizzle broth atop the finished product.
