more yummy ideas from the east coast

Mussels:

Bring water, white wine, minced garlic, butter to a boil. Quantity depends on amount of mussels.   There should only be a few inches in the bottom of the pot.

Add mussels and steam for just a few minutes, giving a stir after a couple of minutes..   Strain and put mussels in a bowl for everyone to enjoy!

Best enjoyed with good company  and beverage of choice!

Go look in the oriental cooking section of your supermarket. Should be right near the canned water chestnuts ;D :salute:

Lemon Chicken

3-4 Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast

1/2 Cup Lemon Juice

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

2-3 Cloves of Garlic

Tobascco Sauce(tm)

Salt

Pepper

In a large bowl combine oil and lemon juice and thinly sliced garlic cloves (the thinner you cut the garlic the more flavor gets into the marinade) Add Tobasco sauce to taste( 4-5 drops for me) add a dash salt and pepper then add your chicken breasts. Let stand covered with saran warp(tm) for 1 hour (more is better) Remove Chicken and Grill, Fry or BBQ.

Looking for something different for breakie?  Try:

SHAKSHUKA

2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 green peppers, chopped
4 tomatoes, chopped
oil
1 cup water
1 teaspoon chicken soup base
3/4 small tin tomato paste
Salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch cayenne or chili powder (to taste)
6-8 eggs

1. Heat oil in a small saucepan. Saute onion until golden. Add the tomatoes, green peppers, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne/chili powder, tomato paste, and soup base. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, over low heat until thick, for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Ladle the tomato sauce into a greased 12-inch frying pan. Bring to a sim­mer and break the eggs over the tomatoes. Gently break the yolks with a fork. Cover and continue to cook,  low heat to maintain the simmer,  for about 3 to 4 minutes, until the eggs are set. Bring the frying pan directly to the table. Set it on a trivet and spoon it out.

Not a lot of palm trees here....other than the vision of me cracking open a coconut with a dull hatchet...is coconut milk available any other way?

Another short cut trick if you really can't find coconut milk or don't want the remainder to go fuzzy in your fridgge is to use Malibu(Coconut Rum).
