Fried Green Tomato BLT with Shrimp Remoulade

Fried Green Tomato BLT with Shrimp Remoulade

Over the last few days I enjoyed some blackened swordfish and that reminded me of the blackened shrimp in the fried green tomato with shrimp remoulade po'boy that I often make while green tomatoes are available. The fried green tomato BLT sandwiches were still on my mind and I was craving more of them. With that thought the gears started to turn and I had a new idea; how about a fried green tomato BLT sandwich with shrimp remoulade? Once I got that idea stuck in my head there was little that could stop me from making them and I certainly glad that I did! I mean you really cannot go wrong adding plump and juicy shrimp seasoned with a tasty blend of herbs and spices with a touch of heat to an already great sandwich!

Blackened Swordfish

Blackened Swordfish

One of the things that I really enjoyed about New Orleans was all of the amazing seafood and I took the opportunity to have it as frequently as possible while I was there. One of my favourite meals was a blackened swordfish and I just had to try making it at home! The basic idea behind a blackened fish s that the fish is seasoned and then briefly seared at high heat until the spices and the surface of the fish just start to blacken, but not burn. The high heat cooking helps seal in the fishes juices and toasts up the spices releasing their flavour. You do have to watch out both because you neither want the fish to actually burn or over cook so a brief cooking time is called for. For the seasoning I used a homemade creole/cajun spice blend and I served the blackened swordfish over a sweet and creamy corn maque choux

Maque Choux

Maque Choux

While I was in New Orleans one of the dishes that really stood out for me was a crab cake in a maque choux. Maque choux is a dish native to southern Louisiana consisting of corn, bell peppers, tomatoes and onions that is braised until the vegetables are nice and tender. Many maque choux recipes are pretty simple but it is surprisingly good, especially when you use ripe in season corn from the cob and tomatoes. Since both the corn and the tomatoes were in season when I got back the maque choux was one of the first dishes that I tried making at home from my trip to New Orleans and I have already made it several times!

One of the key pieces to the maque choux is its creaminess which can be obtained by using things like butter, cream or even bacon grease but the best source of the creaminess is the corn itself. When cutting the corn from the cob, only cut two thirds of the way through the corn kernels and then use the back of your knife to scrape the remainder off and it will form a nice and creamy 'corn milk'.

Maque choux is generally served as a side but it could definitely be used as the base for a main. I know I certainly enjoy eating it by itself by the spoonful and it goes great topped with a bit of crumbled feta but I was also thinking that a shrimp maque choux would make for a great light meal. I would replace half of the cream in the recipe a tasty shrimp stock and then add shrimp near the end of cooking in this version. Other common additions to maque choux are bacon, andouille sausage, tasso or even ham, each of which would add a ton of flavour!

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Follow Me on Pinterest

I certainly have been into the fresh field ripened tomatoes lately! I have been picking up at least a full basket of them every week and most weeks they have disappeared long before the end of the week. Primarily I have been enjoying them in BLT sandwiches but recently I had a new idea and that was for a caprese grilled cheese sandwich. The idea came from a caprese salad which is a nice and simple salad that consists of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil and I figured that it would make an excellent grilled cheese sandwich! I mean you really can't go wrong wrapping something up in buttery and toasty bread grilled to perfection while at the same time melting the fresh mozzarella into an ooey gooey mess!

Fried Green Tomato BLT with Remoulade

Over the last few weeks I have been enjoying a lot of BLTs and when I made the fried green tomatoes the other day it reminided me of how much I enjoy fried green tomato BLTs. A fried green tomato BLT is just like it sounds, a BLT sandwich where the ripe red tomatoes slices are replaced with gried green tomato slices. These sandwiches take a bit more work to make than your regular BLT but it is well worth the effort! The crispy coated tart and tangy fried green tomatoes go really well together with the salty bacon and the fresh lettuce. Although a smear of mayonnaise is grat on these gried green tomato BLTs, I often loke to go with a tasty remoulade sauce instead.

Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes in Fontina

Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes in Fontina

I have been totally into all of the fresh ripe tomatoes around these last few weeks and I have been enjoying them every opportunity that I get. When I came across this recipe for roasted heirloom tomatoes with fontina and thyme on Healthy Green Kitchen I was immediately smitten with the idea. Even if your tomatoes are perfectly ripe they can always benefit from a little roasting which concentrates and brings out more of their amazing flavour. If that wasn't enough, those roasted tomatoes are then smothered in ooey gooey melted cheese taking them way over the top and right onto my meal plan!

This recipe is really quick and easy to make! You start by dicing the tomatoes, tossing them in some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper then you roast them, top them with cheese and broil for a few minutes to melt the cheese. All said and done you can have this tasty treat in front of you in about a half an hour with very little actual hands on time. These cheese covered roasted tomatoes go great with some bread to top or scoop with and it would easily work as an appetizer at a dinner party or even as a light meal along with a salad!

Fried Green Tomatoes

Buttermilk Marinated Fried Green Tomatoes

Ever since I discovered green tomatoes I have been hooked and in particular to fried green tomatoes! Unfortunately around here green tomatoes are usually only available for a few weeks at the end of the summer so when that time of year rolls around I make the most of it. Fried green tomatoes are so simple to make and yet so addictively good with that crispy cornmeal coating! You pretty much just need to soak the sliced green tomatoes in butter milk for a while, batter them up in a seasoned cornmeal mixture and then fry them until they are nice and golden brown. (With respect to frying them, oil would definitely be the healthier option but bacon grease would be the tastier way to go.) As good as they are by themselves, a tasty remoulade sauce is always a tasty addition!

If you have not tried fried tomatillos yet, you need to! So good!

Fajita Burgers

Fajita Burgers

Not too long after I last made fajitas I came across this recipe for fajita burgers on Good Life Eats which sounded really good. I always enjoy playing around with different flavours or themes for burgers and I particularly liked the sound of a tasty texmex burger topped with tender sauteed onions and peppers. With the days starting to get cooler, it was time to get the burgers in and this weekend I got the chance to make them.

These burgers start out with all beef patties that are flavoured with salsa, taco seasoning and a healthy does of fresh cilantro which I covered with slices of pepper jack cheese that were added just at the end of cooking. Next up was the sauteed onions and peppers which I flavoured with even more taco seasoning. At this point the burgers are good to go but you don't have to stop there as you can easily add any of your favourite fajita or taco fillings and I went with some roasted tomatillo and avocado salsa. Luckily corn is still in season and I served the burgers with some fresh corn on the cob topped with cilantro lime butter.

Black Bean Chili Omelette

Black Bean Chili Omelette

By the end of the week I was getting near the end of my second batch of the Mexican baked eggs and I was just itching to experiment. All week I had been baking the black bean and tomato sauce, effectively a simple black bean chili, with eggs on top and I had been thinking that it would also be nice to reverse it and cook it with the eggs on the bottom, a black bean chili omelette. I kept things nice and simple and went with a two egg omelet as it fits perfectly in my pan and I topped it with some of the black bean chili along with cheese. (I always like making my omelettes open-faced as that allows for more filling to be placed on top!) Some tricks to help ensure that the cheese on top melts is to bring it up to room temperature and to warm up the black bean chili before adding it to the omelette. I served these tasty black bean chili omelettes garnished with some fresh chopped cilantro and with a side of sliced avocados for a perfectly satisfying breakfast! (I imagine that pretty much any leftover vegetarian chili would also work well in a omelet like this.)

For the last little while I have had some pretty big cravings for Mexican flavours and over the weekend I certainly did indulge them. Although the salmon tacos with blueberry salsa were really good, they did not completely satisfy my cravings and I was looking for more. With dinners and lunches already planned for the week that left breakfasts and I knew just the dish to make! I came across this recipe for Mexican baked eggs on Kalyn's Kitchen a while ago and as soon as I saw it I knew that I would have to make it as it uses so many of my favourite Mexican ingredients and flavours!

Mexican Baked Eggs

In addition to being nice and simple and easy, this recipe is also really tasty! You start by making a sauce with a base of onions, garlic, cumin and chipotle chili powder which is filled out with the tomatoes and black beans and finally finished off with some fresh cilantro. This sauce is then poured into a baking dish and topped with eggs and cheese and then it is baked in the oven until the eggs are cooked and the cheese is all melted and good! As you can see by the ingredients, this dish is also hearty and yet pretty healthy. This recipe will make enough for about 4 servings but you do not have to bake them all at once. The tomato and bean sauce will keep well in the fridge and you can make one or two servings at a time if you prefer and spread it out over a few days.

Slow Roasted Tomato BLT

Slow Roasted Tomato BLT

For the last little while we have been in the middle of tomato season where the field tomatoes are perfectly sun ripened and just packed with flavour. One of my favourite ways to enjoy these tomatoes while they are at their peak of deliciousness is in a simple BLT sandwich where the juicy tomato takes the center stage and shines in all of its wondrous glory! After having enjoyed perhaps a few too many BLTs I wanted to change things up a bit and I remembered that I had wanted to try doing a roasted tomato BLT. As amazing as the tomatoes are right now, they get even better when you slowly roast them as their flavour concentrates, rather like a sun dried tomato.

The idea was to start with some roma or plum tomatoes and cut them into roughly quarter inch slices so that they would roast quicker and this meant that the smaller ones could be cut in half and the larger ones would need to be cut into three. These tomato slices are then tossed in olive oil along with some thyme and a touch of salt and pepper before roasting. (A splash of balsamic vinegar would also work wonders here.) The tomato slices are then slowly roasted at a lower temperature until they shrivel up but still contain some juices on the inside. Roasting the tomatoes can take 3 or 4 hours so it is a good idea to do it the day ahead of time and they keep well in the fridge for a few days. Just make sure to roast as many of them as you can fit into your oven as they are like candy and you will find yourself heading back to the fridge throughout the day to snack on them!

Slow Roasted Tomato BLT

Once you have your roasted tomatoes, the BLT is finished the usual way. I like to start with a nice whole grain bread and use some thick double smoked bacon from fresh from the butchers shop when I can. Normally I garnish my BLTs with some mayo but this time I had leftovers from a batch of basil pesto on hand and mixed them up together to add even more summery freshness to the sandwich. I have to say that as good as a BLT sandwich is, this roasted tomato BLT is so much better! It's just too bad that those roasted tomatoes disappeared so quickly! I will have to make some more of them soon!

Salmon Bulgogi Quesadillas with Blueberry Salsa

Salmon Bulgogi Quesadillas

When I make tacos I tend to keep them on the lighter and healthier side but invariably while I am going over the recipe, I start thinking about loading up on cheeses and sour cream, etc. Luckily there is an easy solution to get the best of both worlds and that is to make sure that there is enough left over from the tacos to use to make some quesadillas!

Salmon Bulgogi Quesadillas

At their base, quesadillas are made from two layers of tortillas that are filled with cheese and toasted until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese melts and gets all nice and ooey and gooey. Even in this simple form they are hard to resist but you can also add things like meats, salsas, herbs, etc. Pretty much any meat that can be used in tacos will go well in quesadillas and I was looking forward to using the leftover salmon bulgogi from the salmon bulgogi tacos with blueberry salsa in cheesy quesadillas! In addition to the salmon and the cheese I added some of the blueberry habanero salsa to the quesadillas for some heat and some onion and cilantro relish to freshen things up a bit.

Salmon Bulgogi Quesadillas

Quesadillas are commonly served with a sides like salsa and sour cream for dipping. Although dipping can be fun, I sometimes like to just smother the quesadillas in the salsa and sour cream for maximum effect. :)
