No I am not talking about any of that gluten or lactose stuff I mean –
Eat my food the way I meant it to be eaten! Happy to provide instructions where needed
Ok so I have been known to cook weird stuff, especially by those who will; pick the beef out of a salad, eat only the animal protein out of any dish, turn their nose up at the unknown and generally make me hate them by being unadventurous or….
If you put plastic cheese (you know what I mean those awful individually wrapped cheese like slices) on my lovingly created fish burger, I cannot be your friend and will more than likely actually hate you!
Is this yachting life turning me into an incredibly intolerant c*nt? Yeah, nah I suspect yes
I can respect and understand that everyone is a professional eater – we all know what we like, or do we?
Expand your horizons people, you never know until you try it and you never know for sure until you have tried my version of it.
So onto migas – a revolution for me when I first enjoyed the Andalucian peasant dish as it should be – around a communal pan with vibrant Spanish personalities, fresh grilled sardines and melon so sweet and juicy it gets all over your face reminding me of the messy eater episode of sex and the city.
In my case;
Live Sardines from the bait fisherman next door, – kill and clean (the results are just about worth the gore)
A half loaf of sourdough in fridge, – Remove crusts and food pro in batches until crumb like
Big pan – lots of olive oil, some onion and garlic, seasoning
Add some diced chorizo and prosciutto (use the stuff that cant be sliced thin – sold in chunks)
Breadcrumbs – stir over a moderate heat, you want to get them crispy
Use up what ever in the fridge – cooked chickpeas and grilled asparagus, the latter cut into small rounds
Finish with heaps of soft herbs – parsley in my case
Be filled with hate when no one even tries the dish as it should be eaten
“What is the crunchy stuff?”
“Breadcrumbs, you got to try it all together, the melon balances out the dryness and works really well with the sardines.”
“I hate fruit in salads and stuff.”
