Yes I have done it on board for six, it takes all day due to the lack of space but is very rewarding (and tasty!).
That's a lot of work, but sounds delicious. Do you have space to deep-fry poppadoms? Or do you make them differently?

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?



Baby back ribs.
Cook racks of ribs 20 min each side.
Cut to individual ribs
Dip each rib in your favorite sauce
Crock pot cook for 3 hours on low
Done deal, friends think you're a genius.

To 1 cup your favorite sauce:
add 3 tbl spoons soy sauce
add 3 tbl spoons plum sauce
add 1 teaspoon Franks Red Hot or Tapatio sauce.

If you haven't heard of Franks,, you will within the next year.

The only Crock Pots on the market that work are Hamilton Beach.
Rival and the other brands don't regulate the temp well and end up burning or over cooking.

It is a lot of work but worth it every now and then. Norna's Balti House does close for business during the hotter months of the year!

I fry poppadoms in about an inch of oil in the frying pan - hoping that we're not rolling around of course - and that works fine. The most difficult thing is draining them as I never seem to have space to stand them in a pan for a few minutes.

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

One of my current favourites is Curried Chicken salad with raisins and almonds. It's quick, tasty and you can use long lasting ingredients. I serve it with a salad if we have some, a cabbage salad if we are low on fresh supplies.It also makes a really deluxe sandwich filling!

3/4 cup mayo
2tbsp lemon juice
1tbsp honey
2tsp curry powder
5 cups shredded cooked chicken, fresh or canned
2 sticks celery,chopped
2 spring onions,chopped
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
2tbsp cilantro chopped

Whisk together the mayo,lemon, honey and curry powder.
Stir in the chicken,celery,spring onion,raisin,almond and cilantro.
Season to taste.
Sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
Enjoy!

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

At sea we try to keep our cooking to single pot meals, like stew or Gumbo, made from a variety of contents, fish is always high on our list and is used in our stews and gumbos all the time ! at anchor or moored we get a little bit more fancy!! Bob has been known to cook Italian when folks are coming to dinner altho we do get requests from past diners for his Cajun dishs! LOL and some cruisers are still talking about his Chile Colorado !! We do use a BBQ grill at sea a lot it helps in hot places to cook on deck rather then below ! and we seldom get tired of fish and fresh salad and steak and salad is a BIG Treat for us !! we Like to eat so good food is Important to us !!

Our two little midgets favourite meal is easily pancakes with fresh mangos on the side. When we were in brazil and trindad you couldn't walk for tripping over mangos...

This is a nice small batch that feeds the four of us and can easily double. Nice fluffy American style pancakes. We usually make a bunch of smaller pancakes instead of large ones...

3/4 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Sift all dry stuff into a bowl. Mix all wet stuff in another and make sure to melt the butter before mixing in with wet stuff. Now mix all together, throw a nice bit of butter in a med hot pan and cook em up.

The midgets get so hungry when they see us mixing up the pancakes we have to keep the little cannibals at bay with fresh mangos and fresh squeezed OJ

Fresh homemade pancakes are fantastic.
So much better than the instant mixes.
Most forget how good they are.
Great recipe

Because she is going to cook all the recipes and as a result get fat.

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

Two favorites:
1) Chorizo tacos---tortillas (from tortillia before they get too old), tasty local chorizo and oaxacan cheese with a little cabbage & hot sauce

or my old standby

2) spam with top ramen

Re: What is Your Favorite Dish to Make at Anchor?

Successful for when a large group comes aboard, or if you are doing a beach cookout:
Chicken Cacciatorre

5lbs chicken thighs, deskinned, brown in a little olive oil in a dutch oven, 1 1/2 lb sliced mushrooms, 3 lbs onions 1/8th'd, ladle full of minced garlic, sprinkle with italian generic dried spice and equal amount of dried dill, add medium jar of pasta sauce rinsed with cabernet or chianti. Bring to a boil, then simmer for a long time, 2 or 3 hours, uncover if too soupy.

When it's just two and the boat boys come by with spiny lobster, boil a lobster for a few minutes, dice the tail meat and saute it with asparagus in 1/2 inch pieces in butter. Add to beaten egg mixture, fry as omelet with some muenster cheese melted in the center. Some sherry when sauteeing the lobster and asparagus. Onion or green onion is OK.
