Fish and Seafood Recipes!
For some strange reason it never occurred to me that we would loose access to great sea food when we moved to landlocked Hungary… Dumb I know but there are some things you just do not consider. This section may be light on content but you can rest assured that any dishes on here are proper corkers, given the price I have to pay to get these ingredients there is no way they get wasted on bad recipes 😉
Kedgeree is so often flagged as a breakfast dish but for me it is always a lunch/dinner dish and my smoked mackerel version is cooked in a skillet and is perfect for throwing in the middle of the table and helping yourself.
Krumpli is littered with quick Friday Fakeaway dinners but this spicy Szechuan shrimp stir fry is probably the quickest of all… I have it down as 15 minutes prep and 5 minutes cooking but that is allowing for a sip of wine or beer as the prep work happens and a chat as you go, if your concentrating you can prep in 5-10 minutes which puts this recipe at 10-15 minutes from fridge/cupboard to table and it is all from scratch
Paprikash is a Hungarian dish known in the main for its chicken variant, I’ve seen chicken paprikash recipes attempted by writers from all over the world but it’s lesser known cousin Catfish Paprikash of harscapaprikás as it is known around these parts is just as common in our corner of Hungary.
I love thai flavours, there is just something magical about the combinations of flavours that are pure magic, this Tom Yum Soup relies on all of the flavours you associate with that part of the world, lemongrass, kafir lime leaf, fish sauce and of course chili all feature in this soup.
I love this time of year and I love this recipe, this Smoked Mackerel Salad with Apple and Bacon is nothing more than a few good things that really work well together that have been given a little care and attention to make them sing.
I’m sure there will be some itching to point out that the presence of pasta makes this tuna Nicoise pasta salad a fraud, well so be it. It kinda has the flavours of a Nicoise salad, sans olives of course… I hate olives! Most importantly the presence of pasta makes this dish a perfect picnic recipe,
This creole shrimp recipe comes with a little help from my friends, there are some foods that tend not to travel around the world, for instance Mexican food aside from a very pale imitation really is scarcely heard of over here in Europe. Likewise, Creole and Cajun foods are a mystery to us.
I have no idea if this harissa salmon dish is a salad or not, but given that I am not much one for labels who cares, one thing it most certainly is though, is a delightfully light yet filling summer dish rocking the spicy aromatic flavours of harissa and rosewater mixed with orange and fennel.
I have eluded to the fact that I love mackerel a lot here on Krumpli and lament the face that good fresh mackerel is so hard to get my hands on. This cured mackerel salad represents part of the spectrum of my food heaven,
It has been a while since I have taken inspiration from someone elses website so this teriyaki shrimp with broccoli dish makes a nice change for me and a visit to an Asian Fakeaway courtesy of the pages of Richa over at My Food Story.
You know what? I have had the enough of winter now, I live in a place where food is very seasonal and typically nothing is available locally unless it is in season, in many ways it is wonderful and fits in very much with the way I cook and grow food.
This Smoked Mackerel Fusilli With Chili is a super simple, frugal and incredibly quick pasta dish that I see as a winter dish as it contains ingredients that are largely neutral in their seasonality but flavour wise it really screams winter for me. The vibrance of the lemon and chili combination sits so well along side the smoky, salty mackerel and screams the Mediterranean to me.
