Gloriously Garlic Noodles

 

This is a dish that you can have on the table in 20 minutes or less. It has relatively simple ingredients that pack a ton of flavour. It's also open to a lot of variation. I like to serve it with shrimp as shown but really any protein will work, seafood being the fastest one to add. Also, feel free to play with the amount of garlic. The recipe that follows is on the extreme end of how much you want to put it in there. if you find garlic a little overpowering, or you have a dentist appointment the next day, maybe tone it down a bit.  

Gather the Good Stuff 

In regards to the sauce, you can be pretty loose with the quantities. If you like it a little saltier, use more soy sauce. If you like it a little hotter, add a little more cayenne. For the noodles, literally any noodles will do. I used the standard spaghetti but that's just because it is what I had on hand. 
  1. 2 Tbsp soy sauce - a shot of a thicker darker one is probably a good idea. if you use one that is too light you'll miss out a bit on the colour we are shooting for here 
  2. 2 Tbsp oyster sauce 
  3. 1.5 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
  4. 1 tsp fish sauce 
  5. 1 tsp sesame oil 
  6. cayenne or red chili flakes to taste 
  7. 4 Tbsp butter 
  8. 6-8 cloves garlic - minced finely 
  9. 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese - grated 
  10. 2-3 sliced green onions - whites and greens separated 
  11. 200g or so noodles - or however many you need to serve 

Putting it all Together 

You need to move fast with this recipe so make sure your sauce is assembled before you start working with the heat.
 
1. Combine soy, oyster, fish sauce, Worcestershire and sesame oil in a small bowl and stir to mix 
2. Put a pot of water on to boil - no salt required, this gets pretty salty on its own 
3. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add the butter. Allow it to melt and come to temperature 
4. Add the whites from your onions and fry for 2-3 minutes
5. Add the garlic to the butter and onions and fry for another 2 minutes 
6. Pour the sauce into the pan and turn the heat down a pinch. Let it get to a gentle bubble and sprinkle in your cayenne if using 
6.  Put the sauce aside and add your noodles to the pot of now boiling water 
7. While waiting add a small amount of oil / butter to a clean pan and quickly stir fry your shrimp or crab
8. Once the noodles are cooked, using tongs, gentle fish them out of the water and add them to the pan. With each scoopful, mix them well in the sauce. Continue to combine until all your noodles have been added. 
9. Add your seafood to the noodles and mix (my wife isn't a huge shrimp fan so mine went in after she had been served) 
10. Garnish with green onions and serve!

Hot & Sticky Chicken Pops

These are just great. If you've got pickier kids then you can dial up the honey and dial down the hot and they'll love them. For adults, do the opposite. I like to serve this type of stuff as a heavy snack or during a chaotic dinner where you've got lots of folks coming and going. Obviously, these are open to be dressed up any way you like or even just straight roasted / fried for the crispy angle.  Popping the knuckle off of drumsticks is a great trick. It not only makes a nice little handle, it's also visually appealing. Lastly, it severs the little tendons that run up and down chicken thighs that aren't the most pleasant when eating. This is a good technique to get used to using in many different chicken dishes. I believe it is called "Frenched chicken". Gather the Good Stuff  1. Chicken Drumstick - 6-8 or what ever will fit comfortably in your roasting pan 2. 1 Tbsp - rice wine vinegar    3. 1 Tbsp honey - use good stuff  4. 1-3 Tbsp Sriracha 5. Salt &

Smokey Seafood Chowder

I have, rather unfortunately, only lived in places with average weather. I'm used to quite a bit of snow, rain and cold in my days so naturally it's important that I have a few good go-to recipes that warm you right to the bones.  This can easily be fancied up a bit for entertaining if you buy a more expensive fish and add a little saffron but I am a fan of the humble version. Don't be shy to try it with different kinds of trout or white fillets and bacon / thick pancetta instead of ham. I make this in the slow cooker but you could just as easily use  Gather the Good Stuff 400g or so of small potatoes - halved or quartered depending on size.  250g - whitefish or trout.
