What is for dinner?

I don't recall foo having a foodie thread. If that is true, it is long overdue.

I'm no chef. But I try not to do things half-assed.

Tonight, I made blackened salmon/tofu with a side of shirazi salad. Served with the diner's choice of Malbec, Citra/Mosaic homebrew or Victory summer ale (a blonde).

It might have been a big hit. Everyone left to get ice cream and I had to clean up. In their defense, they don't screw around with my cast iron.

I am confused. Was it salmon or tofu?


The other night I broiled (need a new grill) a ribeye with a rub of cumin, cayenne and Chinese five spice.

It was both Salmon and Tofu. The tofu was in a different pan. Speaking of pans, you might consider pan-frying steaks. Gallery: The Food Lab's Complete Guide to Pan-Seared Steaks: Serious Eats | Serious Eats

I then tried it on a NY Strip...I was a little over and the sear a little too hard, so it wasn't as good but still pretty tasty. Getting it to the right temp before the sear is the advantage for me...I'm not very good at judging how done a steak in with all the variations in cut and thickness.

A couple nights ago we made Spicy Chicken Tinga tacos. They were pretty good, we'll have them again some time, but they don't hold a candle to what we had last weekend:

Leftover vegan chili... with leftover roast pork added. Wife's away and I'm taking this opportunity to clear out the fridge of stuff she might think is suspect and just waste by throwing away.

Stir Fry with Bell peppers, sliced okra, onions, sautéed garlic with diced Thai peppers in olive oil, and steak browned in the oven this time (sometimes chicken, sometimes shrimp) For the okra I just use frozen stuff in the plastic bag which I pull right out of the freezer, cut a corner off and fill it with hot water then squeeze drain it, repeat once, and throw it in with the rest. A bag of Top Ramen goes in also, with the pack of flavoring stuff that comes with it.

Everything gets soaked in Soy sauce. The trick is, like good chili, not to stir it too often. Let it singe just a little. I wind up using the same spices on stir fry with steak that I use on it with chicken: Lemon Pepper, Dollar Tree seasoning salt and New Orleans seafood seasoning

Personally I like cooking in cast iron when I can.

I get good reviews with it from everybody eating . . . except maybe the heat from the Thai peppers from some . . . sissies. I try not to overdose the Thai peppers but some gringos have an easily burned palate.
