Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Drumsticks with Garlic Mayonnaise (nomrecipes)

Chicken

8 chicken drumsticks
1 T baking powder
1/2 T kosher salt

Put the chicken drumsticks in a large mixing bowl and mix well with baking powder and kosher salt. Rest the drumsticks in fridge for at least 1 hour (recommend 8 hours). The longer you rest, the crispier the skin will become as the baking powder will have more time to do the magic. Preheat oven to 450 F. Put the chicken drumsticks onto a rack and into oven for 55 – 60 min. Flip the drumsticks once every 20 min. Remove the drumsticks from oven and ensure the internal temperature is 165 F. Toss the drumsticks with the garlic mayo sauce in a large mixing bowl while the drumsticks are still piping hot. Serve Immediately.

Garlic Mayo Sauce

2 t  ketchup
3 T Japanese mayonnaise (can sub with 3 T regular mayo and 1 t honey)
2 t honey
1 t garlic powder

In a large mixing bowl, mix all the garlic mayo sauce ingredients together.

Caribbean Rustic Fry Bake (caribbeanpot)

1 package of pizza dough
vegetable oil for frying
flour for dusting

Using the pre-made pizza dough, remove from the fridge and allow to come up to room temperature. Then open from package and divide into tennis ball size dough balls. Dust your counter, hands and rolling pin with flour so the dough does not cling or stick while working with it. (Can put the remaining dough in a freezer ziplock bag and into the freezer it goes for the next time). The next step is to put the oil to heat in a frying pan and start making the dough balls into the required circle shape. Using the rolling pin (remember to dust with flour) work back and forth, flipping to the other side until you form a circle about 6″ in diameter. When the oil is heated place the dough you just worked into a circle. Remember to place it in the hot oil in an action so it’s away from you to prevent getting burned with the hot oil. As soon as you place it in the hot oil (within a few seconds), using a fork try to flip it to the other side in a quick motion. This helps it get that even surface and allows it to swell so you have that pocket that you can stuff. Continue flipping every 30 seconds or so until it’s swollen and gets to a nice golden brown colour. Remove from the oil at this point and place on paper towels to get rid of some of the excess oil used in frying. Repeat these steps for the remaining dough you have. Serve hot so your guests will get that crunchy exterior that’s so wonderful. To stuff, all you have to do cut it open as you would slice a bagel and stuff with whatever you feel like having. Typically it would be stuffed with saltfish buljol and/or deep fried tidbits of battered shark meat and topped with coleslaw, slices of tomato, cucumber and some sort of hot sauce and/or garlic mayo.

If you’re making the dough from scratch you’ll need…

4 c flour, sifted
1 t salt
3 – 4 t baking powder
1 1/2 c water

Knead and allow to rest for about 30 minutes at least and continue with recipe.

 

Sally Lunn Buns (notquitenigella)

1 c milk
3/4 c butter
4 – 4 1/2 c flour
1/3 c caster or superfine sugar
1 T instant dried yeast
4 eggs
2 t salt
1 egg mixed with 2 T milk for egg wash

In a small saucepan, heat milk and melt butter on low heat until butter melts but do not boil the milk. Cool for about 15 min. Beat eggs in a bowl with a whisk until light and fluffy. Mix flour, sugar and yeast in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. While mixing on the lowest speed add the butter mix and then the eggs and mix for 6 min until it becomes elastic. In the last minute or so add the salt. It will be a wet and sticky mix but don’t fret, it is meant to be like that! Grease a very large bowl with butter and place the now very sticky dough in the bowl and cover with cling film. Allow to rise for 60 – 90 min in a warm space in a draught free room. It will really rise up high! Punch it down and knead the dough for 2 min.  Can make these using greased 12 cm baking tins as they looked neater that way, or you can make these free form and they will spread out more but won’t quite get the hamburger bun shape. Divide the dough into about 10 – 12 buns and allow to rise for another 30 min. Preheat oven to 380 F. Just before they are ready, brush buns with the egg glaze and bake in oven for 15 – 20 min. Serve warm or toasted with just about anything!

Zucchini Dill Pickles (epicurious)

2 lbs small zucchini (preferably about 4″ or 8″ long), trimmed
4 T coarse sea salt or pickling salt, divided
12 fresh dill sprigs
2 t  yellow or brown mustard seeds
1 t coriander seeds
1 t dill seeds
1/4 t saffron threads
4 garlic cloves, halved
4 red jalapeños or Fresno chiles, split lengthwise
2 1/2 c white wine vinegar
1/4 c sugar

If using 4″ zucchini, halve lengthwise. If using 8″ zucchini, halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Place in a large bowl. Add 2 Ts salt and 4 c ice. Add cold water to cover. Top with a plate to keep submerged. Let sit for 2 hours. Drain; rinse. Divide dill sprigs and next 6 ingredients between 2 clean, hot 1 qt jars; set aside. Bring vinegar, sugar, remaining 2 T salt and 1 1/4 c water to a boil in a large saucepan. Working in batches, add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until khaki in color and slightly pliable, about 2 min. Using tongs, transfer zucchini to jars. Divide hot syrup between jars to cover zucchini, leaving 1/2″ space on top. Wipe rims, seal, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Allow at least a week to pickle before eating. Makes 2 quarts.

Super Crispy Fish and Chips (rockrecipes)

2 lbs boneless skinned cod fillets
canola oil or peanut oil for deep frying

Fish Batter

1 c flour
1 c  rice flour
1 t salt
1/2 t freshly ground black pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 1/4 c cold soda, water or beer

Combine dry ingredients. Add egg and soda water and whisk together just until the liquid is incorporated. Small lumps in the batter are not a problem. Cut fish into about 8 pieces. Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge fish pieces in additional rice flour to help the batter stick to the fillets. Dip pieces into the batter and carefully drop them into canola oil filled deep fryer that has been preheated to 375 F. Fry for  about 5 min, depending on the thickness of the fillets; just until golden brown on
both sides. Drain on a wire rack placed over a cookie sheet. Serve immediately. If you have to fry the fish in more than one batch at a time, hold the fish in a 200 F oven on the
draining rack to provide air circulation all the way around the fried fish pieces to prevent the fish from getting soggy. Serves 4.

Lime and Caper Tartar Sauce

1 c plain mayonnaise
2 t chopped capers
2 t sweet pickle relish
1 t honey
1 t Worcestershire sauce
1 t chopped lime zest

Authentic Chicken Teriyaki (norecipes)

340 grams boneless skin-on chicken thighs
1 t fresh ginger, grated
1/4 t salt
2 t vegetable oil
1 T honey
1 T Mirin
2 T sake, divided
1 T soy sauce

Rub the ginger and salt into the chicken and let this sit for at least 30 min. After it’s marinated, use paper towels to dry the chicken as best you can, removing any excess ginger pulp. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan over medium heat. You don’t want to start the chicken off over too high a heat otherwise it will not cook through before burning. Place the chicken skin-side down in the pan and fry until golden brown on one side. Flip the chicken, then add 1 T sake and quickly cover the pan with a lid. Steam the chicken until it is just cooked through (about 5 min). Prepare the teriyaki sauce by mixing honey, mirin, 1 T sake and soy sauce. Stir to combine. Remove the lid and drain any remaining liquid and oil. Use a paper towel to sop up any excess oil. Turn up the heat to high, then add the teriyaki sauce. Let this mixture  boil, while flipping the chicken repeatedly to coat evenly. The chicken teriyaki is done when most of the liquid has evaporated and the sauce forms a thick glaze around the chicken. Slice and pour the remaining teriyaki sauce over the chicken.

Fresh Strawberry Pie Bites (sugarapron)

Homemade All Butter Pie Crust or 2 pre-made, ready to roll pie crusts
4 – 6 c fresh strawberries, chopped and hulled
1 c water
1 c sugar
1 3 oz box Strawberry Jell-O
3 T cornstarch
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour (or use nonstick cooking spray) a mini-muffin pan. Set aside. Roll the dough or pie crust out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin. Using a round cookie or biscuit cutter (approx 3″ diameter) cut at least 24 rounds out (or 12 rounds of each pie crust, if using store bought). Carefully press each round into the mini-muffin pan. Use your fingers to round the ends into a pie crust. Brush egg wash from one egg to the top edges of each pie. Bake for 15 – 20 min or until golden around the edges. Remove from oven and let the crust cool while you make the filling. Once cooled, use the tip of a knife to loosen the crusts from the mini muffin cups, but keep them in the pan. Put the water, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Whisk constantly until it become thick, about 3 min. Whisk in the Jell-O and cook for a minute longer. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 – 15 min. As the glaze cools, place strawberries straight into the mini pie crusts. Pour the glaze over the strawberries. Refrigerate until set. Decorate with whipped cream before serving. Keep refrigerated. Yield: 24.

Crisp Zucchini Bites with Garlic Aioli Dip (natashaskitchen)

Zucchini Crisps

1 large or 2 medium green or yellow zucchini, sliced into 1/2″ thick rounds
1/2 c flour for dredging (seasoned with 1 t salt and 1/4 t black pepper)
2 eggs, beaten, for egg wash
1 1/2 c Panko Bread Crumbs
oil for sautéing (Use something with a higher smoke point like grape seed oil or canola)

In the first bow, mix together: flour with salt pepper. In the second bowl, beat eggs with a fork. In the third bowl, add panko bread crumbs. Dredge all sides of zucchini chips in flour. Next, dip floured zucchini in the beaten egg mix; they should be completely coated in egg. Transfer zucchini to the bread crumbs bowl and coat both sides of zucchini with bread crumbs. It helps to scoop the breading on top of the zucchini pieces so when you grab a hold of them to turn them, your fingers won’t get wet and later get so crusted up in panko that they aren’t useable (been there). If this does happen (and it might despite your best efforts), keep calm and wash your hands, then continue. Heat a large, non-stick, heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat and add about 1/4″ oil (enough to generously cover the bottom). Note: The oil is hot enough when your zucchini is simmering in the pan, but it should not be snap, crackle and popping out of control. Once the oil is hot, add breaded zucchini chips and saute about 3 min per side or until golden brown on each side. If browning too quickly, reduce heat. Once zucchini are done frying, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels and serve warm with aioli sauce.

Chocolate Brownie Cake (iambaker)

Cake

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 box fudge brownie mix
4 eggs
1 1/4 c water
1 c oil

Heat oven to 350 F. Prepare a bundt pan with bakers spray or use the butter/flour method. Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl and whisk for 2 min or until lumps are mostly gone. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for 50 – 55 min. When done baking, remove cake and allow to cool in pan for up to 5 min. Carefully turn cake out onto a cooling rack and cool for 30 min more. Pour ganache over cooled cake and serve.

Ganache

1 c heavy whipping cream
1 12 oz bag semi sweet chocolate morsels

Place heavy whipping cream in a large microwave safe bowl and heat for about 2 min. You want the cream to be just boiling. Carefully pour chocolate morsels into cream… it may rise up and bubble and this is ok. Let sit for 5 min. Whisk chocolate and cream until shiny and smooth, about 1 min.
