Melanzane e mozzarella

February 23rd, 2018 | starter

Eggplants are indispensable to an Italian appetizer plate. In this recipe eggplant, tomato, prosciutto and mozzarella enter a creamy liaison. Ready in 30 minutes the sunny taste makes me believe that summer is not far…

Eggplant with mozzarella

(4 servings)

2 aubergines
cut into slices (1 cm)
6 TS olive oil
sauté slices about 5 minutes, remove, drain on kitchen paper
salt, pepper
season, put on baking tray lined with baking paper
4 tomatoes
cut into slices, place one on each eggplant slice, salt and pepper
1 bunch basil
put some basil aside for the decoration, finely cut the remaining and spread on the tomatoes
100 g Parma ham
pluck in pieces, place on top
2 mozzarella cheese (125 g) each
cut into slices and place on top
bake the eggplant “tower” under the preheated grill (240 ° C) for about 8 minutes
serve garnished with remaining basil leaves

And that’s how the wife of the captain does it

For this dish, I don’t use a simple black pepper, but a special pepper mixture called Jahreszeiten Gewürz” which means season’s seasoning of a German spice specialist called “Altes Gewürzamt”. This is my absolute favorite spice with tomatoes. It is a sort of pepper (piper nigrum) in five different processing stages. Steaks and tomatoes? Only with good salt and Jahreszeiten Gewürz, nothing else.

Jackfruit curry with pineapple

Curry dishes, especially the traditional sailor’s curry, are not to be left out of our diet. Mostly a curry is cooked on chicken. Here I introduce a vegetarian alternative – for those who want to reduce their meat consumption. Ginger, garlic, poppy seed, cumin, turmeric, coconut milk and jackfruit. Pretty exotic, right?

Fish market? No, homie, „FrischeParadies“ [paradise of freshness]!

Thirty years ago you could buy super fresh fish directly at the fish market in Hamburg. Today, only a handful of cutters are pinning at the pontoon of the fish auction hall. So where do the Hamburg people buy fish today, especially if they don‘t want to get up Sunday morning at 4 o’clock? I swear on FrischeParadies. Nowhere else in Hamburg you’ll find such a well-stocked and wonderfully presented fish display as in FrischeParadies. And where do you find this paradise for foodies? Of course, in the Große Elbstraße [Great Elbe Street]. Where else.
