Shrimps, Mushroom and Rice Salad

June 21st, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

This isn’t one of the recipes I usually cook, but it kind of puzzled me when I saw a recipe, so I had to try it.

It turned out pretty nice, somewhat unusual taste but quite interesting.

I used shrimps, presented in last week recipe this recipe, but I think store purchased pre-cooked shrimps will work well for it as well.

Tortilla Rolls with Crab Sticks and Cheese

May 24th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina

I had some tortillas left from the pack I used on recipe earlier this month. So I decided to post another recipe for tortilla rolls, this time with crab stick, cheese, garlic and greens stuffing.

The same as the first one, these rolls will work perfectly as a snack or an appetizer, and they go great together with beer.

So if you are looking for some unusual snack recipe, here it is.

Tortilla Rolls with Fresh Cheese and Garlic

May 3rd, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks by Julia Volhina

Flour tortilla rolls with fresh cheese, dill and garlic will pair perfectly with beer as a snack. Or an appetizer, or both.

You can prepare them in advance and slice right before serving, just allow them to sit in fridge for at least 30 mins before serving, so tortillas can soak moisture a bit.

At home we made these with lavash bread, but it is a bit hard to find here, so I used ready to go flour tortillas and it worked good too.

As for the cheese you can use any fresh cheese which can be easily crumbled to your taste: fresh white cheese (quark), feta or queso fresco.

Shrimp and Asparagus Salad

September 7th, 2013 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

Shrimps and asparagus with dill and cream is quite unusual combination for me, but I must say it tastes delicious. I ate something similar when we lived in Austria and wanted to reproduce the recipe ever since.

It tastes especially good if asparagus is young and you manage to not overcook it to keep crunchy texture. Lemon juice helps to brings the best taste out of asparagus.

By the way, if you use frozen shrimps, thaw completely them before adding to salad.

Chicken Kiev Cutlets

August 31st, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is one of recipes of ukrainian cuisine, after all it is named after capital of Ukraine – Kiev / Kyiv, but it is pretty popular through rest of former USSR countries.

Chicken Kiev is no ordinary recipe, but definitely one worth time spent: tender chicken meat folded around herb butter, covered in breadcrumbs and egg batter and cooked.

The trick is to fold meat and coat cutlets in batter in a way that herb butter doesn’t leak through holes while deep frying.

Herb Butter with Dill and Garlic

August 24th, 2013 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina

Herb or herbed butter is not only a good way to dress plain butter for further use, but also a good way to preserve fresh dill if you have too much on your hands and no other use for it.

For some reasons stores here choose to sell dill in such big bunches that it is sometimes too hard to put it all to use before dill spoils. By the way, you can mix other fresh herbs to prepare herb butter.

Herb butter is essential ingredient of Chicken Kiev recipe (which goes out next week), but it can be also used on steaks, fish, potato or other vegetables.

Scrambled Eggs with Ham and Tomatoes

August 10th, 2013 in Eggs, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I just realized that my website doesn’t have any scrambled egg recipes published by now. So here is an attempt to fix this issue.

Obviously, this recipe is good for breakfast or brunch, or just for any time when you need to fix something to eat fast. Amount of ingredients is good for 2 portions.

You can use ham, just like I did, or canadian bacon, or hot dogs, or another kind of sausage you like. Taste will be slightly different.
