Influenza Sorbet

January 23, 2013

1231000458

While we find the name a bit unappealing, this sounds like the perfect way to soothe a sore throat.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has unveiled a new flavor called “ Influenza Sorbet.

This frozen treat contains Maker’s Mark bourbon, orange and lemon juices, ginger, honey and a dash of cayenne pepper. Sounds a little like a cross between Master Cleanse lemonade and a frozen “hot toddy” to us, which just might do the trick!

It’s available on the company’s website and their own scoop shops for $12 per pint.

Unrecipe of the Week

February 25, 2012

Lately, it seems that every time I ask what to get at the fish market, the answer comes back “shrimp!”

It’s certainly a quick and easy ingredient that adapts to many different types of seasonings and preparations.  It’s extremely low in calories, and cooks up in a matter of minutes.

I went searching for inspiration for a new way to prepare them and found a recipe for Stir Fried Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce.

With a few little tweaks and substitutions to the original, here is our version of tonight’s dinner:

Sauteed Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons orange juice, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ¾ tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce* and set aside.

Toss 1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined, in a little bit of cornstarch.

Sauté 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, and some fresh minced ginger in a little canola or peanut oil until soft. (This will take less than a minute)

Add the shrimp, and sauté another 3 minutes or so, until they are cooked.

Add the sauce to the pan, and cook until it starts to thicken, about 2 more minutes.

Serve over brown rice and enjoy!

Nectarine PitFresh fruit is a perfect foil to simple grilled chicken. We love this unique combination of ripe nectarines, cilantro and avocado, to create a salsa that adds a sweet and tangy touch to a dinnertime staple.

Nectarine Salsa with Avocado and Cilantro:

Cut a nectarine into small pieces

Dice ½ an avocado into similar sized chunks

Mince one shallot and sauté in a little olive oil

Add a little orange juice (about ¼ cup) and a splash of balsamic vinegar to the pan and boil until slightly reduced and allow it to cool a bit before mixing it with the fruit

Toss in a handful of finely chopped cilantro and serve

Enjoy!
