Lotsa BBQ-ed stuffs since the gas BBQ came... wings, ribs, potatoes, burgers, sausages... so much for telling Barry that I won't really use it... Ha! Ratatouille...just because of the movie... There is a step to it.. I followed this recipe : onions go into the pot first followed by garlic, bell pepper strips, tomatoes, Provencal herbs, pepper, aubergine and lastly zucchini. Et voila! Ratatouille!
Lobster Roll (no picture) - May brought back 2 spiny lobsters from her holiday in Kota Kinabalu. I boiled the whole lobster in boiling water with some salt, bay leaves and garlic added. 8 minutes (lobster was about 500gms each) after water started to boil, it was done. I used very low heat so that it was more like poaching to keep the flesh tender.
I ripped the lobster apart and tore the flesh into pieces, mixed with chopped celery, mayonnaise, chilli powder and freshly ground black pepper, it was good to go as a filling for a nice bun with slices of tomato and cucumber... Classy lunch!
