Discovered this recipe while I was a consultant to one of the long time landmark New Orleans restaurants 20 years ago. It's still my all-time favorite catfish recipe and I have closely guarded the recipe till now. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I have.
This is a three cabbage slaw - green, red, and napa - but the real delight is the dressing. It is made with creamy peanut butter laced with brown sugar, fresh ginger, and garlic - and a bit of oil, vinegar, and soy sauce.
Besides curry, this dazzling salad has yummy sunflower seeds and dried cherries. It tastes great and looks super when presented on a big, beautiful platter. Marinate overnight so that the flavors of the curry/mayonnaise dressing has time to work.
Dill is sprinkled on the strawberries and spinach before being tossed in a robust and sweet vinegar and oil dressing laced with hot mustard, onion and garlic powder, and a pinch of cayenne. For a final touch, a smidgen of sesame seeds are tossed into the bowl.
I love making these flavorful lamb burgers stuffed with creamy, delicious goat cheese. I use basil and oregano in mine, but feel free to use your favorite herbs and spices, this recipe is very forgiving. Using fresh rosemary in the meat mixture will give the burgers a real Greek flavor. Serve the burgers on hamburger buns or pita bread with tzatziki sauce, or on their own with a Greek salad.
A whole chicken is cut up and simmered with potatoes, onion, shallots, garlic, ginger and lemon grass and seasoned with curry powder, kaffir lime and red pepper flakes in this coconut-milk enriched soup.
This is a hearty Soup that is good for cold winter days. Lamb and vegetables are cooked in a beefy broth with chewy barley. You can add more vegetables if you like, this is very flexible. Serve by itself or with your favorite main dish.
Beef cubes are marinated with cayenne pepper and garlic before being grilled. This fiery dinner goes great with fresh pitas, chopped onion, and sour cream to temper the black magic heat! Trust me, you'll crave them!
