Healthy Scallop Recipes
Find healthy, delicious scallop recipes including baked, grilled and sautéed scallops. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Seared Scallops with White Bean Ragu and Charred Lemon
This recipe for seared scallops with white beans and spinach turns out a healthy dinner that looks impressive (and tastes great) in just 25 minutes. Giving lemons a quick sizzle in the skillet amps up the flavor of this piccata-inspired dish. The heat helps release even more citrus juice and sweetens it too. When shopping for scallops, look for ones labeled “dry.” Some scallops are soaked in a solution that prevents them from searing properly and can give them a soapy flavor………….

Panko- and Parmesan-Crusted Baked Scallops
These easy baked scallops have a delightful balance of crunchy, golden-brown topping and tender, sweet scallops. They feel decadent like scallops should, thanks to the tasty lemon-butter sauce. Look for uniform scallops; if they’re particularly large, you might need to bake them for more than 10 minutes…………….

Miso-Glazed Scallops with Soba Noodles
This Japanese-inspired dish uses one sauce–a sweet/salt combination of mirin and miso–to make both the marinade for the scallops and the caramelized pan sauce for the noodles. A good pairing would be a simple green salad dressed with a citrus vinaigrette…………..

I love Grilled Cheese………..

To make that grilled cheese sandwich even better, sprinkle a little freshly grated parmesan cheese on the outside of the bread while it’s cooking then flip it over in the pan so the cheese will cook/stick to the bread.

Usually made by layering creamy chicken and tortillas (lasagna-style), this classic Tex-Mex chicken casserole gets speedier for an easy weeknight dinner when we mix everything together in a skillet, then pop the whole pan under the broiler to make the cheese topping gooey……….

Chicken Parmesan Casserole
We took the best parts of chicken Parmesan–ooey-gooey cheese, crispy breadcrumbs and plenty of tomato sauce–and spun them into an easy family-friendly casserole. We simplified it by skipping the breading on the chicken and, instead, loaded the top of the casserole with cheese and breadcrumbs. Serve with a crisp green salad to complete the meal……………

One of America’s Favorites – Soufflé

December 28, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A chocolate soufflé

A soufflé is a baked egg-based dish originating in France in the early eighteenth century. Combined with various other ingredients it can be served as a savory main dish or sweetened as a dessert. The word soufflé is the past participle of the French verb souffler which means “to blow”, “to breathe”, “to inflate” or “to puff”.

The earliest mention of the soufflé is attributed to French master cook Vincent La Chapelle, in the early eighteenth century. The development and popularization of the soufflé is usually traced to French chef Marie-Antoine Carême in the early nineteenth century.

 

Soufflés are typically prepared from two basic components:

1 – a flavored crème pâtissière, cream sauce or béchamel, or a purée as the base

Cheese soufflés

2 – egg whites beaten to a soft peak
The base provides the flavor and the egg whites provide the “lift”, or puffiness to the dish. Foods commonly used to flavor the base include herbs, cheese and vegetables for savory soufflés and jam, fruits, berries, chocolate, banana and lemon for dessert soufflés.

Soufflés are generally baked in individual ramekins of a few ounces or soufflé dishes of a few liters: these are typically glazed, flat-bottomed, round porcelain containers with unglazed bottoms, vertical or nearly vertical sides, and fluted exterior borders. The ramekin, or other baking vessel, may be coated with a thin film of butter to prevent the soufflé from sticking. Some preparations also include adding a coating of sugar, bread crumbs, or a grated hard cheese such as Parmesan inside the ramekin in addition to the butter; some cooks believe this allows the soufflé to rise more easily.

After being cooked, a soufflé is puffed up and fluffy, and it will generally fall after 5 or 10 minutes (as risen dough does). It may be served with a sauce atop the soufflé, such as a sweet dessert sauce, or with a sorbet or ice-cream on the side. When served, the top of a soufflé may be punctured with serving utensils to separate it into individual servings. This can also enable a sauce to integrate into the dish.

A chocolate soufflé with lava center served with ice cream

 

There are a number of both savory and sweet soufflé flavor variations. Savory soufflés often include cheese, and vegetables such as spinach, carrot and herbs, and may sometimes incorporate poultry, bacon, ham, or seafood for a more substantial dish. Sweet soufflés may be based on a chocolate or fruit sauce (lemon or raspberry, for example), and are often served with a dusting of powdered sugar. Frugal recipes sometimes emphasize the possibilities for making soufflés from leftovers.

A soufflé may be served alone or with ice cream, fruit, or a sauce.

Apple soufflé is made by lining a cake tin with pureed rice that has been boiled in sweetened milk and baking it in this until it sets. The rice “border” is filled with thickened apple marmalade and whipped egg whites and baked until it rises.

I’m ok with that, as long as the ingredients aren’t questionable. Our in-house artisan chef has created a first rate pepperoni using 100% buffalo and organic ingredients.

1 – cup + organic pizza sauce
12 – ounces fresh mozzarella, drained and sliced/shredded
4 – ounces Parmesan, freshly grated (about 1½ cups – not packed)

Preparation:

1 – Arrange oven racks in the mid to lower part of the oven. Preheat oven or convection oven to 500°. Convection oven will automatically reset to 475°. Dust pizza pans or stones with cornmeal.
2 – Prepare dough recipe below as recommended. Place dough out on a lightly floured surface and roll out in a circular shape. Transfer the rolled dough carefully to the cornmeal dusted pizza pans. Push the dough around with your hands to reshape, rolling and pinching the outer perimeter of the dough for a thicker crusty edge.
3 – Spoon about a third cup of sauce (or as much or as little as you like) onto each pizza and spread around.
4 – Top each with about 4 ounces of mozzarella cheese, followed by equal portions of Wild Idea Buffalo Pepperoni, and finishing with the grated Parmesan.
