Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad Recipe

January 4th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

This unusual combination of ingredients yields pretty interesting salad. And it tastes best then prepared right before serving.

Original recipe calls for 10 quail eggs, but I find them somehow hard to find here, so I used 2 chicken eggs as replacement.

Pineapples themselves are optional ingredient, you can skip on them if you wish so, but with them salad tastes more interesting.

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.

Salmon in Mustard, Lemon Juice and Soy Sauce Marinade

July 27th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is very easy way to cook salmon, you just need to put marinade together, pour it over salmon and then cook salmon together with marinade.

I used portion salmon fillets for this recipe (6oz each), but salmon steaks or a whole salmon fish will work here as well. For cooking whole fish increase marinating time for couple of hours or even do it overnight, and bake it instead of frying.

Fresh vegetables or boiled potato are good side dishes for salmon cooked this way.

Asparagus Fried with Butter and Garlic

June 8th, 2013 in Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Asparagus is one of foods I never ate before I came to US, and it seems pretty popular here as a healthy food, probably pretty packed with fiber everybody talks about so much here.

And this is easy way to cook it, you just need to make sure to not overheat butter and garlic.

Younger the asparagus spears require less time to cook. Make sure to cut off hard ends from the bottom all the way till soft part.

Chicken Curry Kebabs

June 1st, 2013 in Chicken, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

It is BBQ season again. And these curry chicken kebabs are good fit for one of these.

Chicken meat turns out very tender and juicy, especially if you use boneless chicken thighs (but breasts will do too).

If you don’t want to bother with grill (even though it is pretty fun), you can roast skewers in the oven over the baking pan.

Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce for Seafood

January 26th, 2013 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina

Nice and quick recipe for simple sauce to serve with seafood: crab legs, mussels, clams, lobsters, etc.

You can use use fresh garlic or garlic powder, as well as fresh lemon or lemon juice, whatever is at your disposal.

When served, make sure it can be kept warm enough to prevent butter from thickening.

West Ukrainian Cheese Cake

August 13th, 2011 in Desserts by Julia Volhina

This cake is similar to the cheese cakes so popular in west part of the globe. However this one is made from quark cheese (fresh farmers cheese), not from the cream cheese.

It is very popular dessert treat in West Ukraine. It is often being made with raisins, however I don’t like raisins, so I am doing it without any filling. Just add them if you like.

During the baking this cake will rise in the oven, and then it will fall down a bit while colling down. That i s ok, just important not to open oven while baking or cooling.

To make up for a bit uneven shape, you can cut uneven sides off before serving it.
