Rice pilaf with leeks and fried mackerel
Gentle frustration, great frustration even if it still drips from time to time. The sprinkling of the main street applied by the mayor in my city only heats up the asphalt, drowns us and dries our throats with the steam that surrounds us, withers the flowers in the green spaces and stutters the stray dogs in the shade.
Let someone tell the workers, with the right to decide!? Watering flowers and shrubs in circles in the middle of the day when the sun burns the most can not do good to the plants. The work in shifts in the greenhouse sector of the mayor's office seems to have been abolished since then with the 5-day / week program, with compulsory leave on Saturday and Sunday.
In fact, it doesn't even matter that the flowers wither in vain, they are immediately replaced with others because it is only on the taxpayer's money.
Why could it be another time and not today? Without being nostalgic, I sometimes think that in the old days you could water the flowers and the roads around 5 in the morning, when the day broke and the frost from the time of going to work was bearable. How to go to work today with a lot of work and guaranteed success at work when he just got out of the house his shirt stuck to his body, and in the car / train even with the windows open, to get current, you can barely breathe ?! It will be about global warming, I don't say no, but thinking with love and strength, something can still be solved.
Let's go back to food, because whatever we do, we can't jump over the tables all the time, because we become "professionals" and skeletal. We really can't move anything.
The slightly lighter summer dishes can be the ideal solution for the hot season, when the seasonal salads, just what we see and cut our appetite. Drinking only fluids to hydrate yourself, on an empty stomach, is not exactly healthy.
What light meals do we prepare for hot spicy heat? The basis of the recipes are the least cooked vegetables & # 8211 spinach food with egg yolk (it also goes with frozen spinach), nettles with rice and egg yolk (it also goes with dried nettles in their season and rehydrated or with scalded and frozen nettles), okra food (they just appeared on the stalls this year, but the okra is also frozen quickly), peppers stuffed with vegetables and what else you have in the fridge.
It doesn't have to be meatless food, although it doesn't hurt the stomach & # 8211 dill with chicken spines (the spines are boiled for a soup with dumplings), vegetables stuffed with meat and ghebe (ghebe is used from those scalded and frozen in autumn), leeks filled with minced meat.
Ingredients needed in the recipe: special rice for pilaf, poultry soup / poultry stock, fresh mackerel, green leafy leeks, green dill, extra virgin olive oil, fresh butter, parmesan / smoked cheese, lemon, coarse salt, peppercorns, hot pepper flakes, garlic cloves.
Use poultry soup & # 8211 turkey tart stew which is then put in the oven or chicken back stew or poultry stock (whole boiled chicken juice and then put in the oven).
- special rice for pilaf,
- leek with green leaves,
- fresh mackerel,
- fresh butter,
- poultry stock / poultry lard / poultry soup,
- parmesan / smoked cheese,
- green dill.
The poultry stock is boiled and cooled juice from poultry soup put in plastic food cans in the freezer.
You can use bird lard stored in the refrigerator in jars with tight lids. The bird lard is put in cold water, boiled. The mixture is boiled for a few minutes.
In this recipe I used concentrated poultry soup background which I heated in a soup pot and diluted it with cold heated water. The obtained mixture is then boiled to boil.
Every housewife with her own taste! I don't like to wash pilaf rice. Starch binds rice giving the pilaf a special taste.
How do we wash the leek from the ground? The leek is well washed from the soil filtered through the leaves. If there is too much soil between the leaves, the thicker leeks can be cut lengthwise and then washed.
The leek is cut into longitudinal rounds and cooked in a little mixture of olive oil and fresh butter.
Season with coarse salt and a freshly ground peppercorn powder. The leek slices are mixed with a wooden spoon and smothered with the lid on the pan.
- Washing leeks with earth leaves. Leek cutting in the form of slices. Tempering leeks and simmering in a little mixture of fresh butter and extra virgin olive oil.
- Add the rice to the pan with the stewed leeks. Bake together for 2-3 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon.
- Preparation of poultry stock in the form of hot liquid. The liquid is added over the mixture of stewed leeks and brown rice. It boils.
- Put the pan with the ingredients in the hot oven of the stove, at the right heat. Follow up with rice swelling and top up with liquid, as appropriate. Homogenize mixture after each filling of liquid. Before the last homogenization, add finely chopped green dill.
- In the pan with rice add parmesan / smoked cheese given on a large grater. Homogenize the preparation with a wooden spoon.
- Fresh mackerel cleaning and frying in a special pan for fish, in a mixture of fresh butter and extra virgin olive oil, over high heat.
- Serve hot, on flat plates, with fish sauce and lemon slices.
The chef's secret! Do not add water during the suffocation of leek slices. Like any vegetable, leeks have enough water and do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
The unwashed starch rice is added to the pan and mixed with a wooden spoon for homogenization. Cook for 2-3 minutes together with the stewed leek slices, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon so that the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
In the pan with leeks and rice, add the poultry stock diluted with water and boiled.
Mix with a wooden spoon to homogenize the mixture, on the stove flame, until it boils.
When the liquid starts to boil, put the pan in the hot oven of the stove, at the right heat, to swell the rice. Periodically follow through the oven glass not to dry the liquid (it is completed, as the case may be, also with poultry stock or hot water). Mix with a wooden spoon, for homogenization, after each filling of liquid.
When the pilaf is cooked / the rice grains are swollen and bind well together, add finely chopped green dill. Mix with a wooden spoon to homogenize the boiled mixture.
Parmesan / smoked cheese is put on a large grater.
Parmesan / grated cheese is added to the pan with pilaf.
The mixture is homogenized using a wooden spoon. Cover the pan with the lid to keep the pilaf warm.
The fresh mackerel is cleaned of scales, the head is cut (it has little meat at all) and it is cleaned inside. The fish is washed under a stream of cold water and swabbed with absorbent paper.
The mackerel is seasoned with coarse salt and freshly ground peppercorns inside and out. The fish is fried whole, in a mixture of fresh butter and extra virgin olive oil.
In the special fish frying pan add hot pepper flakes and garlic cloves. While frying the fish, drizzle the lemon juice on the fried side.
The dish is served hot, on plates spread with fish frying sauce and lemon slices.
A cold beer goes great.
Good appetite you gourmet brothers and you gourmet brothers everywhere, wherever you are in the world! Remember the old slogan (current even if there are no more slogans on the food walls) & # 8211 No meal without fish! It can be far too often to serve fish at every meal, but 2-3 times a week can be pure health. If you have never eaten fish, but you say you don't like fish, try this recipe that can change your opinion and tastes.
