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.

Don’t be afraid of game!

Time and again I hear: “I have never prepared game, I don’t know whether I can do that.” This concern is nowadays absolutely unfounded. The days of strong smell and taste are long gone. So-called “Haut goût” (French for „high taste“) referred to the very intense, slightly unpleasant smell that arose when the meat was stored too long without proper cooling. Today, in the age of cold stores and freezers, it does not exist any longer. So, get to the wild feast.
