Saturday Dinner @ Casa d’ Amado

30 Jun

Fried Rice Fried Eggs and Smoked Sardines

Ok, not the healthiest of meals, but the flavors are amazing.
I rended the fat from diced Csabai (a spicy Hungarian sausage that kicks the shit out of chorizo) and sauteed some diced onions. Added a knob of unsalted butter and tossed in some mixed veggies. Added two day old steamed rice and salt & pepper to taste. Fried three eggs at a very high temperature in oil (almost Dominican style deep fried) to give the eggs a nice crispy bottom, then gently flipped the eggs over for a few seconds and then removed from heat. Plated rice, topped with the eggs, and garnished with Smoked Sardines.


Sunday Dinner @ Casa d’Amado

9 Jun

It’s been a very long while since I’ve cooked something exotic for myself and my son. For this evening’s dinner, I decided to bring together my Asian roots with my love of Jamaica putting a twist of Thai into Jamaican pepper pot chicken served with steamed rice.  For dessert, something fun… Ben & Jerry’s Caramel Chew Chew ice cream with espresso caramel apples.  Yum!
