Fancy small Greece vacation?

April 9th, 2018 | main dishes

Who would not like to exchange the unstable German April weather for a few days in Greece… My tip, for those who cannot start such a trip at the moment: conjure up some sun on your table with a sea bass on okra pods. Now it’s going to be Greek!

Fancy small Greece vacation?

The fish seller of our confidence offered us two beautiful sea bass. Wonderful, now we just bring a few okras, tomatoes and peppers home from the market, and the Greece break can begin.

Sea bass on okra pods

(4 portions)

400 g of okra
cut stalks without cutting the pods
put the okra in boiling lightly salted water with a dash of vinegar, boil briefly, place in a sieve and immediately quench with ice-cold water, drain well, if necessary, pat dry with kitchen paper
2 onions (100 g), chopped
400 g of tomatoes, very roughly cubed
8 red mini-peppers, in the whole
2 garlic cloves, very finely chopped
½ bunch of smooth parsley, chopped
5 stems of celery green, chopped
2 ts dried oregano
120 ml white wine
3 TS mild white wine vinegar
7 TS olive oil
2 ts brown vanilla sugar (see tip)
salt, pepper from the mill
mix well, season to taste with salt and pepper, mix with the vegetables in a large casserole dish or on the baking tray
cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and cook at 200 ° C for 25 minutes
2 sea bass (500 - 600g each)
wash, pat dry, cut twice on each side according to taste
salt, pepper from the mill
2 ts dried oregano
season the fish inside and out and put on the vegetables
1.5 TS olive oil
drizzle on the fish, cook open for 30 - 40 minutes, the fish is well cooked when the dorsal fin is very easy to pull

And this is how the wife of the captain does it:

Vanilla is a wonderful spice and so precious that I put the scratched vanilla pods in a tin of brown sugar. The sugar adopts the vanilla flavor very quickly and I use it as spice for sauces, vegetables, soups – just for everything! And of course, I also use this vanilla sugar for baking.

Giersch-Tarte April 3rd, 2019 | main dishes

Ground Elder Tarte – by no means weeds!

Ground elder, the weed known as “gardener’s fright”, is considered ineradicable. What can be done about it? Just eat it! Ground elder is delicious (and so healthy) in salads, as lemonade, pesto or – as in my recipe – as ground elder tarte.

Chicken in Vermouth – finally again a Captain’s Dinner

We have Chicken in Vermouth when our family calendar is marked with two letters and a laughing smiley. There are also days marked with a crying one. The letters are the initials of my dearest, obvious what the emojis stand for: Signing off and on, that’s how it is called in shipping terms. It means to come home and to go aboard a ship. Today the emoji is beaming in our calendar! Time for Chicken in Vermouth!
