Seafood (and eat it)

  • May 25, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please Note: This Meetup is scheduled during Memorial Day Weekend

Menu:

Appetizer
• Gravlax- This is a traditional Nordic means of preparing salmon. The salmon is coated with a spice mixture, which often includes dill, sugars, salt, and spices like juniper berry. It is then weighted down to force the moisture from the fish and impart the flavorings; served on toast points with a sweet mustard-dill sauce.

Main Course Dishes:
• Seared Scallops (Chef Ramsey style)
• Kitchen Clambake (Is it really possible to throw a clambake right in your very own kitchen, regardless of what the weather is doing outside? ~~~ YES!)

The seafood dishes are included in the sign-up price. The rest of the dinner is potluck style.

We need volunteers to bring the following:

(1)Toast Points (recipe is in the message board above under               the discussions tab. Bread Folder)

(2)Mustard Sauce (recipe is in the message board above under               the discussions tab. Appetizer Folder)

(3)Side dishes that will pair with the Seared Scallops.

Suggestions would be:  Risotto, Spring Cabbage Salad,               Creamed Spinach, Spring Vegetable Puree to name a few.

(4)Desserts

(5) Wine to pair with the seafood dishes.

    Oh my goodness. The lobster, cured salmon, scallops, muscles, potatoes, crabs, shrimp, champagne sauce, and of course the bread, was so extra ordinary delicious, not to mention the side dishes, desserts, and drinks everyone else brought. The hostess and host (Marki and Dick) are the best in the world. The attendees are whitty, funny, social and professional. My daughter and I had a wonderful time. Enjoyed every minute of it.

    The food was really good and very abundant. I would have never thought of cooking these meals so I'm glad I got to see how simple it can be. I loved the clambake and hope to make it for a dinner party soon. It's great for large number of people and very interactive.

    That was a fun cooking event. The giant lobster claws were hard as a rock, very messy, and difficult to crack open. I was surprised at how little added liquid is needed in the stock pot for cooking everything in there.

    Yes, really like to learn how to sear fish and especially scallops. I love eating them in restaurants but have not tried at home.

    March 10, 2013

  • Jason

    I would really like to learn how to properly sear any fish and scallops. Joseph mentioned learning how to work with live seafood and I think that's a great idea as I'm unfamiliar as well.

    I would really like to learn how to work with live seafood (fish, shellfish, crustacean), my experience with seafood is limited to prepared raw ingredients i.e. fish fillets

    Also, since there is no date or time set yet.. will we be able to receive a refund if the chosen time conflicts? Thanks! :D

    March 1, 2013

  • Patty W.

    I had a wonderful curried seafood dish at Royal Khyber - sort of like an Indian cioppino. I'd love to have the recipe and learn to make something like that. Or how about going Creole with some shrimp or crawfish etouffe?
