Wok Wednesdays – August

              Liang Nin Xiu’s Moon Hill Corn and Beans, p. 132 – The Breath of the Wok

Liang Mian Xiu’s Corn and Beans is a very simple summer meal. Ingredients include corn on the cob, green beans, chopped coarsely, garlic ginger, fresh chilies tomato, sugar and salt. I didn’t have any chilies so I used red pepper flakes.  Stir fry ingredients and enjoy.  Pairs well with Pork and Cucumbers.

 

Whiskey Sunset

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is adapted from a recipe I found in Cooking Light magazine a couple of years ago.

I think their version had less calories.  I call it Whiskey Sunset.  A great drink to enjoy the solar eclipse, where ever you are on Monday.

Add ice to a bourban/whiskey glass.

Add:

1 oz. bourbon

1/2 oz. Campari

1 tsp. cherry juice, plus 2 cherries.

Fill the rest of the glass with tonic water.  Mix well.

Mediterranean Herb Crusted Fish

In addition to Crab Cake Buddha bowl from karenskitchenstories I made Mediterranean crusted fish.  This recipe is from McCormick recipes.  While it calls for Tilapia other white fish will work as well.  I had some cod loins in the refrigerator so that is what I used.

Spices include:  1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. minced garlic, 1 tsp. marjoram, 3/4 tsp. ground mustard, 3/4 tsp. basil leaves, 3/4 tsp.oregano, 1/2 tsp. black pepper. Melt 1/3 cup butter or use olive oil. Mix spices and butter or olive oil. Spread 1 Tbs. of mixture on to fish. To the rest of the butter add 1-1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach leaves, 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs, 1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper, 3 Tbs. shredded Parmesan cheese. Mix together well. Spread evenly among the fish fillets. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
