cirie-won-thirty-four · 21 days ago
If you ever go to kenya and get an air bnb that requires you to cook meals for yourself (or go out to eat but that’s besides the point) so you go out to buy spices to make food, and you like chili flakes so you buy the chili flakes from the company tropical heat, DO NOT use them like you use chili flakes that you buy at trader joes or whatever, you WILL ruin your food and have the entire house coughing because that shit is hot AS FUCK!

Saint-Marie Beef and Pineapple Rum Pilaf
Tumblr media
The latest -tenth- series of Death in Paradise has finally returned to our screens this Monday, and, as is now tradition in this house, I’ve cooked a Caribbean meal to eat whilst watching favourite sleuths solve bizarre murders in the West Indies! This Saint-Marie Beef and Pineapple Rum Pilaf -which could absolutely be the island’s signature dish, although I will definitely try the crab thing!- is also a Welcome Home feast for DS Florence Cassel (Joséphine Jobert) whom we were so happy to have back (now if Ruby Patterson could come back from Paris, too!)
Ingredients (serves 4 to 6):
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Graines à Roussir
1  large garlic clove, minced
1/2 tablespoon Colombo spices
¼ teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
1/2 large red bell pepper
200 grams/7 ounces beef mince
1 1/2 cup long grain rice
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/3 fresh, juicy pineapple
1 lime
1/4 cup good quality white rum (like Guadeloupe’s Damoiseau)
3 cups water
3 tablespoons pure cane sugar
3 fluffy sprigs flat-leaf parsley
Heat a large, deep, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Add Graines à Roussir  and fry, a minute.
Stir in minced garlic, Colombo spices and Red Chili Flakes. Cook, a couple of minutes more. Chop red bell pepper, and stir into the oil an spices. Cook, 1 minute. Then, stir in beef mince, and brown, a couple of minutes.
Then, stir in the rice, coating well into the oil and spices, until transcluscent. Season with coarse sea salt.
Peel and dice pineapple.
Once the rice is well-coated and transluscent, stir in pineapple and thoroughly squeeze in the juice of the lime. Add half of the white rum; then, the water, and give a good stir. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover with a lid, and simmer, about 20 to 25 minutes, until all liquid has been absorbed.
Stir in cane sugar, cook, a few minutes more.
Finally, chop and stir in flat-leaf parsley and remaining white rum.
Serve Saint Marie Beef and Pineapple Rum Pilaf  hot. (Finish meal with a small glass of Cardamom and Vanilla Rum!)

Spicy Organic LLC Spotlight- Organic Red Chili Peppers Flakes!
Organic red chili pepper flakes are very different from the red chili powder that you may be ordinarily using. Just like black pepper is best when cracked or coarsely ground via a pepper mill, red chili flakes also release more taste and flavor than finely ground red chili powder.

Red Kuri Squash Pasta (Vegetarian)
Tumblr media
This tasty and fragrant Red Kuri Squash Pasta is (basically) a one-pot dish, so rather simple to prepare with little washing up, it’s also chocka with Vitamin A, which makes it the perfect Saturday night pick-me-up (best enjoyed with something equally cosy on telly!) Have a good one, friends!
Ingredients (serves 2 to 4): 
2 garlic cloves
4 bay leaves
1/2 Red Kuri Squash, rinsed
1/2 teaspoon dried thym
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon fleur de sel or sea salt flakes
1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
2 cups whole-wheat penne, fusilli or other short pasta
60 grams/3 ounces fresh Mozarella
fresh parsley
Fill the pot of a steamer with water. Add garlic cloves and bay leaves. Bring to the boil.
Seed Red Kuri Squash halve, and cut into two large pieces. Place into the basket of the steamer, and cook, over simmering water, about 25 minutes, until both flesh and skin are tender. Remove from the heat, and let cool slightly. Then, scoop out Red Kuri squash flesh into a small bowl. Peel garlic cloves and add to the squash, along with dried thyme, dried oregano, fleur de sel, black pepper and Red Chili Flakes. Generously drizzle with olive oil. With a stick blender, process until very smooth. Set aside. 
Remove steaming basket and return pot over medium-high heat. Once bay leaf water is boiling, stir in coarse sea salt. Then, stir in pasta and cook according to package’s directions, generally 9 to 11 minutes until al dente.
Drain pasta, saving 1/2 cup of its starchy water. Return pasta to the pot, discarding bay leaves, and pot over a medium flame. Stir in Red Kuri squash sauce, gradually adding starchy water, until sauce beautifully coats the pasta. Tear Mozarella into chunks, and stir into the pasta until just melting.
Serve Red Kuri Squash Pasta into plates. Grate a little Parmesan on top, and garnish with parsley. Eat hot!

Smoked Salmon
Tumblr media
This Summer, our old brick and cement barbecue threatened to collapse, just after we’d finished installing, painting and varnishing our new panel fence. So, Dad and I hammered it down with a heavy mallet. Soon after we bought a new barbecue, the kind with a lid -coals still, though, or it isn’t really a barbie! Ever since we’ve got it; I’ve wanted to take my salmon and trout curing to the next step and smoke my own fish! New Year’s Day was the perfect occasion to enjoy a light lunch of oyster and fish, so I made Smoked Salmon for the occasion, and Jules and I loved it. I smoked it with apple wood from our tree; but I saved a few branches from our Christmas tree, and I might try smoking things with pine wood next! But if you have the kind of barbecue, with a lid and vents, with which you can smoke your fish, I absolutely recommend it! Just bear in mind that the process take a few days: twenty-four hours for the curing, a couple of hours for the smoking (for a small side of salmon) and an overnight rest in the fridge.
2 cups coarse sea salt
2 cups caster sugar
½ tablespoon Red Chili Flakes
a side of salmon (about 650 grams/1.45 pounds)
2 1/2 tablespoons good quality London Dry Gin (like Hendrick’s)
1 1/2 tablespoon Rosemary and Juniper Syrup
In a large bowl, combine coarse sea salt, caster sugar and Red Chili Flakes, stirring well to mix. Set aside
Unwrap a large portion of cling film, without cutting it. Arrange about a third of the salt and sugar mixture onto it, and sit salmon halve, skin-side down firmly onto it. 
Combine Gin and Rosemary and Juniper Syrup in a small bow, and stir well. Drizzle Gin mixture generously over the salmon.  Top with remaining two thrids of the curing mixture, fold cling film over and wrap tightly. Place in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
The next day, arrange a small layer of coals in the barbecue and light a fire.
Meanwhile chop about half a cup dried apple wood. (I used applewood because a have an apple tree in the garden, but I reckon you might use other sorts of wood!) Place chopped applewood chips in a bowl and cover with water. Allow to soak, about 30 minutes.
Remove cure, and wash salmon under cold water. It now has taken a deeper pink hue, and the flesh is harder to the the touch. Pat salmon dry with paper towels. Sit cured salmon side, skin-side down onto a lightly oiled sheet of foil, folding the edges up to form sort of tray, but not covering the flesh.
Once the flames have died, and the coals are hot but no longer too red, dusted with ash, drain applewood chips thoroughly and scatter over the coals. Carefully place the grill over the coals. Sit cured salmon, on its foil tray onto the grill, and close the lid of the barbecue. Close the vents, not completely, so that the temperature inside the barbecue is about 95°C/203°F to 85°C/185°F. Smoke salmon, about an hour and a half to two hours, moving the vents as needed to maintain a rather constant temperature.
Carefully remove Smoked Salmon from the barbecue. Wrap in cling film and chill overnight. 
Serve Smoked Salmon the following day, with Chestnut Blinis and sour cream mixed with chopped chives and Spring onion, cracked black pepper and Gin.
