Share Your Recipe / Cioppino
« on: December 08, 2018, 08:57:57 PM »
So tonight, i branched out a bit and flexed my culinary skills and made some cioppino.

JR with this being a dish from your gender confuzzled area, i will put this up against any and all you can recommend.

Here is the recipe link...(give me a minute and ill copy and paste it here.):

https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/cioppino-seafood-stew-with-gremolata-toasts-51248830

now let me also add that I used
- 1qt of my homemade stewed tomatoes
- 1qt of my homemade tomatoe sauce
- omitted the squid...(because that shiza is disgusting!)
- omitted the clams...(just because they didnt have any good looking ones at the seafood store)
- omitted the crab....for the pure fact that its not in season right now and its amlonst impossible to get here in a some what fresh state!
- added huge diver scallops

Ingredients

3 garlic cloves, divided
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup packed sliced fennel
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
1/2 pound cleaned squid, bodies sliced into 1/2-inch rings, tentacles halved lengthwise if large
1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup dry white wine
1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 bay leaves
1 8-ounce bottle clam juice
1 1/2 cups seafood stock or vegetable broth
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, divided
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 baguette, sliced and toasted1 pound littleneck clams, soaked in water for 1 hour
1/2 pound medium tail-on shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pound mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
1/2 pound skinless flaky white fish such as bass, halibut, hake, or cod, cut into 1-inch pieces

PREPARATION

Mince 2 of the garlic cloves. In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion, fennel, celery, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the minced garlic and red-pepper flakes. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is golden and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add squid. Cook, stirring occasionally, until squid is opaque and tender and the released juices reduce, 15 to 20 minutes. Add tomato paste and oregano and cook, stirring, 1 minute.

Add wine, raise heat to medium-high, and cook until cooking liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 7 minutes. Add tomatoes with their juice, bay leaves, clam juice, and stock. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, covered, 30 minutes. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the butter, 1 tablespoon parsley, lemon zest, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together. Cut remaining garlic clove in half and rub the cut sides on the toasts. Spread the flavored butter on the toasts.

When ready to serve, heat the pot to medium and add clams, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the shrimp and mussels. Arrange the fish on top of the stew, cover, and simmer until shellfish opens and fish and shrimp are firm and opaque, about 5 minutes more. Discard bay leaves and stir in remaining 2 tablespoons parsley.

Serve cioppino immediately in large soup bowls with gremolata toasts alongside.

is there a learning curve to it or is it as simple as set the angle according to the book with the correct strap and RPM and go to work?

if you are talking about building a swappable motor while you drive it, don't you have a high dollar built cummins just sitting there?  was that cummins not built for pure power, or am I missing something completely here?

by no means am I trying to throw you off your intended course, just a question that was going thru my grey matter.

the bacon is resting in the fridge till tomorrow when it will receive smoke and heat... :beercheers:

You ever try making beef bacon? I have some beef belly in the freezer waiting for me to. Supposedly you make it the same as pork.

Jon, heres what i was told about beef bacon.

"Nate,
Yes, I make beef bacon.  The most commonly used cut is the naval plates, a cut from the belly.  Purchase with the skin removed, cure as if it were pork belly.

The fat of the naval plate is important for the flavor and for frying, just don't fry until crispy, leave flexible.  Great flavor.

Bob"

now that sounds really interesting.  I can reach out to my contact that gave me all the info on hams and the recipe that I use for the bacon and see if he has anything for beef bacon if you would like?

speaking of bacon, it is on the smoker and I even put 6 bricks of different cheese on as well.  when the cheese is done, I will vac pack it and let it sit for a month before I open and test for flavor... :grin:

I really like the SS idea but have not pulled the plug yet. Had Vivint for a few years, but service was $$$. Live and learn,,,,,,,,,,,

I think a little about hacking with wireless cameras, but not sure if I should. With wired it is easy to add a camera and not pricey.


In a real life issue where someone comes to your home with ill intent what in the large scope will the difference between WiFi vs hard line, secured self contained be? 

Will either stop someone?

I know I ran a bunch of stuff to hard wire cameras but my thought was to not need to change batteries.  My only thought was the power source.

WIFI can be hacked, there is no true encripted wifi as of yet....(read the military still does not run on WIFI, but is testing.).

a lock will only keep an honest person honest?
