family meals: week 25

August 16, 2012

seafood medleySeafood Medley. This is one of our meal staples. Ben is typically the one who makes it, but this week I did. It’s fast, delicious, and always turns out great. We saute the seafood in some chili garlic oil, then put it on top of some whole wheat spaghetti, lightly drizzled with more chili garlic oil. Then we top that with a lot more red pepper (yes, we like it really spicy!) and parmesan cheese. Yum!

pizzaNew Orleans Shrimp Pizza. I took out two balls of dough for dinner and didn’t want to make two of the same pizza, so I looked up another one that might have spice and did it. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but this was definitely another pizza that will be made over and over again.

pizzaSpicy Garlic Shrimp Pizza. The next pizza, I just put the garlic chili oil (we make tons so we have it ready when we need it) with mozzarella & shrimp on top. When it’s out of the oven we usually sprinkle with parsley, but in this case I used garlic chives from the garden.

curryMalaysian Chicken Curry. Virginia, owner of Addiah, saw my cry for curry last week and told me about Malaysian Curry. I looked up some recipes and tried it out. Oh man. It was so spicy! Not because I doubled the chili powder, but because of those little red chilies that I sprinkled on top for garnishing. This was really good, but the chicken was a bit dry because I cooked it too long. Though the reason I did that is because the potatoes were still firm. Next time, I would put the potatoes in first and let them cook for about 10 minutes before I put the chicken in. There is only 2 tbsp of oil in this recipe and it doesn’t call for a coconut milk or heavy cream, so this is a really healthy curry. Though it lacks the creaminess, it still is really good. Definitely will try this again!

    I made Indian chicken curry twice last week – the first time it was so spicy that only my husband could eat it, the second time I used regular paprica instead of Indian one and it turned out a bit better, so I could eat it as well. Man, you guys like it really spicy!

    Ohhh, that seafood medley and shrimp pizza makes me wish I wasn’t allergic to shellfish, because it just looks so lovely.

    I am from Malaysia, and the way you cooked it, it looks exactly like it! Good job! (:

    Where are your recipes? There are a few entrees I would like to try but I do not see exact recipes.

    Is there any chance of getting your garlic chili oil recipe? I’ve only ever had the ready made stuff from the Asian food aisle. I’d rather make my own. Thanks.

    yes, so easy. extra virgin olive oil on the stove on really low heat, throw some minced garlic in there and sprinkle in as much red pepper flakes as you want. make sure to keep the heat as low as possible unless you like crispy garlic. the ratios are all up to your liking. we throw lots of red pepper flakes in ours and i like it with more garlic than ben does. hope this helps!
