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

My chicken cacciatore is similar. I use a whole chicken cut up. After browning the chicken in olive oil I remove to a bowl. Then I throw an onion (sliced with the grain) and some quartered mushrooms into the pot and cook for 5 min or so until soft. This has the added advantage of helping to clean the pot lol. Then I throw in salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, 3 sprigs of rosemary (if you have fresh, otherwise dried rosemary flakes), hot red pepper flakes to taste, tomato sauce (at least one cup) and some wine.

Put the chicken (together with any acumulated juices) back in on top of the veggie/sauce mixture. Then take sliced red and green peppers (one or two of each) and put on top of the chicken. Add more salt and pepper. Cover and cook for a long time.

If your dutch oven fits inside your oven, you can finish it up in a 350 degree oven for about 75-90 minutes. Otherwise just simmer on the stovetop.

One of our favs aboard is Pasta with Salmon.

Boil up the fettuccine and drain
Toss with warm pesto and mayonnaise
Stir in peas, either fresh or frozen, just heated up enough to not be cold
Flake in the leftover salmon from the grill the night before ; -)
Garnish with roasted pine nuts

You don't want to heat it up to much or the salmon will be too cooked!

Serve with crusty bread and a chilled white.

Me too. Once years ago I was salmon fishing on a charter boat out of Westport, Washington and I caught a monkfish. It looked prehistoric. I was about to throw it back when the mate stopped me and said "Don't do that. They are just as tasty as the salmon." And he was right.

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

We love fresh bread on passage as well as at anchor and there is no easier or tastier way than making Beer Bread...

...there is the drawback that making this recipe cuts into the beer supply!!!

Beer Bread

3 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup sugar
12 ounces beer (pilsner or lager usually works best)
2 tablespoons melted butter


Mix it all together in a loaf pan and toss in an oven at 375f/190c for 55 minutes.

you can change it up by adding rosemary, olives and onions for yummy savory bread or add banas and nuts for a banannish bread. Add anything you want and so easy to make that in anything but really extreme weather we bake bread every other day...

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

...well i love my food so here is another recipe - this one super easy and uses canned items and dired meats

Artichokes, Prosciutto and Broad beans

Ingredients

Artichoke hearts: One jar or can
200g fresh broad beans or one can
200g fresh peas or half can
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp mint, roughly chopped (fresh) or 1/2 tsp dried
1 tbsp parsley, roughly chopped (fresh) or 1/2 tsp dried
8 slices prosciutto, serrano ham, or other dired thinly sliced ham
Salt and pepper

If mint and parsley are dried then you can add them to the 3 tbsp of oil in a pan and heat them up on low heat for a bit to bring the flavor out of them. Whisk together the oil, lemon and garlic. Add the artichokes and season with salt and pepper


If beans are fresh then blanch the broad beans and peas for about 4 minutes (or until tender) or ff canned drain completely. Add them to the dressed artichokes

Adjust the seasoning and, when completely cool, if using fresh herbs then add the mint and parsley to the beans and peas

Arrange on a plate with slices of prosciutto. Serve with fresh crusty bread or croutons.

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

Dutch Baby Pancake
A good recipe to make at anchor so the batter doesn't slosh around

This makes an easy and elegant breakfast, served with bacon, ham or sausage and whatever fresh or canned fruit you have on hand. It took a couple of tries to get ours right in our boat oven. Our grandkids all love it. George likes his with syrup, I like mine with lemon and powdered sugar.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Original recipe calls for 425 F, too hot for our boat oven. Melt a half stick or so of butter in a 9x13 pyrex pan in the oven (I use a slightly smaller pan, about 9x12.

While the butter is melting, mix together in a bowl:
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
3 eggs
...if you have a bigger oven and use a 9x13 pan, you can increase milk & flour to 1 cup each, and add a little extra sugar (or not) and another egg. It takes a couple of tries to get the right ratio for your boat oven. The more batter you use, the more custardy the bottom will be and you don't want it too terribly thick.

Tilt the pan so the butter coats the bottom, add in the batter. You can add banana slices or apple slices to the bottom if you wish.

It's done when the sides are puffy and lightly browned. Have folks sitting at the table when it comes out of the oven because it deflates quickly. Serve with fresh fruit or as is, and enjoy!

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

Thanks for all the good ideas. I can't wait to try the Carintas. Has anyone been to GalleySwap.com? It is a nice site and easy to navigate.

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

Easy Enchilada Casserole
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
8 oz salsa
1/2 can refried beans
1 can enchilada sauce
6 - 7 oz crushed tortilla chips
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Cook beef with onion and garlic. stir in salsa, beans, sauce and simmer 5 minutes. Layer half meat mixture in baking dish, cover with half the chips and half the cheese. Repeat layers.

Bake 350 for 20 min.

Hint, I place this in a square cake pan and grill on low heat for 15 minutes. To prevent burning the bottom nest 2 pans together for insulation.

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

Pasta Fagioli





Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled & chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 lb hot Italian sausage (casings removed if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 -2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 4 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • 1 can cannellini beans
  • 1 cup ditalini (or other small pasta)
  • Parmesan cheese, for serving
Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large heavy pot over medium high heat. Add the diced onion and cook until it just begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Add celery and carrots; cook, stirring frequently, for another 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add the sausage to the pot, crumbling as it cooks. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink. Stir in Italian seasoning and red pepper. Stir in tomatoes and stock.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.
  4. Stir in the beans and ditalini. (Add an extra cup of stock or water at this point if its boiled down too much.) Simmer for 6- 8 minutes or until pasta is tender.
  5. Serve piping hot with Parmesan cheese. (I really liked the sharpness of the green onions with this as well.)
