Teriyaki Salmon Strips

Teriyaki-Salmon-Strips-3

What for a wonderful easy and tasty salmon dish! I prepared this wonderful dish with all the suggested ingredients except of the green onion (I did not have it on hand) and the result was amazing and beautiful as well. I reduced the teriyaki sauce to about 1/2 cup using it to marinate; after grilling the the salmon I placed the fish on a plate and I quickly added the marinate on the quickly washed grilling pan with little water and I boiled it shortly. After this I served the now hot marinade on the fish.

I really can recommend this recipe; enjoy!!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, divided (I used only 1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup water
  • 300 g king salmon, cut into 1-ounce strips
  • 10 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped (I did not use this)

Konju Theeyal- Shrimp in a Spicy Roasted Coconut Curry

Konju-Theeyal--Shrimp-in-a-Spicy-Roasted-Coconut-Curry

This is a delicious, and quick curry, easy to assemble and full of taste.

I had the curry leaves in the freezer and I substituted the fresh coconut by dry one. After roasting the coconut with the spices I added water and blended it well. I blended it again after 5 minutes that the coconut adsorbed the water.

For decoration and little color I added a few halved cherry tomatoes just before serving!

Great recipe Parvathy

Ingredients:

Prawns – 10 to 12 numbers if small , if tiger prawns use 7 or 8
Tamarind- a small gooseberry size
Grated coconut- half cup ( I used dried, but I added half cup water before blending)
Whole pepper corns- 1 teaspoon
Paprika – 1 /2 teaspoon
Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Coconut Oil- 1 teaspoon
Onion – if using small onions just 2 , if using big white onions 1 tablespoon chopped
Curry Leaves – 2 sprigs (about 12 leaves)

Dijon Fish Fillets

Dijon-Fish-Fillets-2

The original title of the recipe is Ww Dijon Fish Fillets – 2 Pts. I tagged this recipe because I was sure that I would love it an it was an ideal quick meal for week days dinner. The other reason was that I already tried several recipes posted by Teresas and all of them were delicious and light! I scaled this down to a recipe for 2 people.

I used frozen salmon filet which I prepared as described, that only change I had to make was to let them cook a few more minutes as this had to be defrosted before.

The result was amazing, the fish was tender and moist and the crust super delicious! I really recommend this recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 ounce) orange roughy fillets ( or flounder, perch or sole)
  • butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

Zuppa di Mare (Seafood Soup)

Zuppa di Mare (Seafood Soup) 1

Recipe according the original recipe:

http://mythreeovens.com/2014/12/12/zuppa-di-mare-seafood-soup/#comment-1114 by Threeovens

Sofrito:

  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 4 anchovies (about 1 ounce)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided

Soup:

  • 8 mussels, scrubbed clean
  • 8 littleneck clams, scrubbed clean
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock or 1 1/2 cups fish stock or 1 1/2 cups chicken stock or 1 1/2 cups clam juice
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 pinch saffron
  • 1/2 pound white fish fillet, cut into bite sized dice (grouper, swordfish, halibut, snapper)
  • 4 sea scallops
  • 8 large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1/2 pound calamari, cleaned and sliced crosswise into rings

My changes accordin what I had on hand:

I did not have 8 mussels, 8 littleneck and 4 sea scallops clams so I doubled the quantity of white fish. Instead of big calamari I had mini ones that I forgot I had in the freezer! 🙂 Instead of tomato sauce I used 4 fresh Roma tomatoes finely diced and I added one small red onion really finely chopped. I forgot to peel the shrimps, but this was not a problem. I had to use frozen parsley, but this has no impact with the taste.

Finally I had to change much less than expected and the result was amazing!

We enjoyed it with focaccia with rosemary (I had some pieces in the freezer as well)!
