Summerfood 2011? I know you all think BBC, but what else? There must be thousands of quick and easy summery recipes that you make on a hot summer day.
I found some delicious and very easy to make dishes in a french magazine.
This is one of them that I tweaked to my wishes. Many thanks to "Cuisine et Vins de France" summer edition 2009.
Probably the simplest terrine you can make and very useful to get rid of cooked veggie left-overs!
I used a piece of fresh salmon in chunks, cooked haricots verts, cooked broccoli. Sweat a peeled red paprika with onion and garlic and let cool. Mix all these ingredients with a bunch of fresh herbs like parcely, chives, tarragon, lemon verbena..etc. Add quite a lot of seasoning; s&p, pinch of cayenne. Then the fun part. You need -more or less- as many eggs in volume as the sum of all other ingredients, so there's a lot of eggs in the dish. Break the eggs above all the other ingredients but try to keep a few intact. Mix extremely gently. Put in a cakemold. Bake 45 minutes at 180°C/350°F.
Leave to cool entirely. Absolutely delicious! I can think of dozens of variations.
Ready to go in the oven. So simple to make!
Out of the mold. Let it cool entirely.
Looks nice when not all the eggyolks are broken!
