RECIPE: Salmorejo Soup

Using herbs is predominant in most traditional French cuisine and this Salmorejo is not an exception. Thanks to Chef Cara Davis and The Maya Kitchen for sharing the recipe.




Ingredients:

8 pcs plum tomatoes, cored and halved
1/2 clove garlic
1/2 pc small yellow onion, sliced
2 tbsp. sherry vinegar
1 day old baguette, 8 oz cut into large cubes
1/4- 1/2 water
pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

Garnish:

3 pcs hard boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
150 gms jamon serrano (cured ham), oven baked until crisp
rustic bread
olive oil


In a blender, add the mixture of tomatoes, garlic, onion, vinegar, bread cubes, water, salt, pepper and olive oil. Blend all ingredients until smooth. Add water if you find the soup too thick or add bread if it is too thin. Season with salt and pepper.

This soup can be eaten as is or garnished with chopped hard boiled egg and crispy jamon serrano chips. Serve with rustic bread and a drizzle of olive oil to finish.

Serves: 6-8

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity! 

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
