so last night after work, i stopped by albertson's to pick up some salmon and dill.

i went home and made gravlax:

1/4 salt
1/4 brown sugar
big pinch of pepper
1 shot of citrus vodka
big pinch of chopped fresh dill

combine ingredients in a zip lock bag. add salmon cutlets and marinate over night 24 to 48 hours. once its done marinating, rinse off marinade and slice into thin strips. top bagels, toast or mix into cream cheese for a hearty dip.

Hi! [Dec. 29th, 2004|08:21 pm]

Hi! I just joined.  I think Jamie Oliver is an awesome chef (Food Network, of course), and so is Alton Brown.  I'm a vegetarian, and I love to cook, but I really don't have much time for it. 

Anyway, I just wanted to say that ya'll have a new member!

Baby Potatoes with Creamy Goat Cheese and Fine Herbs [Sep. 13th, 2004|09:21 pm]
Fans of Jamie Oliver and other Foodies
[mood |hungryhungry]

1 cup dry white vermouth
3 cups water
4 sprigs fresh parsley
3 sprigs fresh tarragon
One 1 by 2-inch piece of lemon zest
1 tablespoon kosher salt
6 small red-skinned potatoes (about 8 ounces)
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

3 ounces fresh soft goat cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
1 tablespoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon
2 teaspoons paper-thin rounds fresh chive, plus 12 1-inch pieces for garnish
2 teaspoons minced fresh chervil or 1 teaspoon minced fresh dill
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
To make the potatoes: In a medium saucepan combine the vermouth, water, parsley, tarragon, lemon zest, and salt. Set aside.

Cut the potatoes in half horizontally. Slice a small portion off of the rounded ends-- so the potatoes stand up without rolling around -- and discard. Add the halved potatoes to the saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; adjust the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until just fork tender, about 8 minutes. Set the potatoes aside to cool in the liquid for 5 minutes.

Drain the potatoes, reserving 2 teaspoons of the cooking liquid. Discard the herbs and lemon zest. With a small spoon or melon baller, scoop out a little of each potato, to make a little "bowl" for the cheese.

Toss the potatoes with the oil in a small bowl, and stand them up on a baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the filling: In a medium bowl, cream the cheese with the creme fraiche and the 2 teaspoons of reserved cooking liquid. Fold in the minced parsley, tarragon, chives, and chervil. Season with pepper, to taste.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and let cool slightly.

While the potatoes are still warm, spoon a dollop of the cheese mixture into each potato. Set the potatoes on a platter and top off with the chive segments to garnish. Serve.
