Fried Rice with Shrimps

December 28th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

One more recipe for fried rice, this time with shrimps.

As any fried rice, it is pretty easy and fast to cook, especially if you use frozen vegetables, just don’t forget to unfreeze them as well as shrimps in advance before cooking.

Most of the salt for this recipe comes from soy sauce, only eggs need a bit of additional salting.

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.

Mussels Steamed with Shallots in Wine and Butter Sauce

February 9th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is a recipe for tender mussels steamed with shallots, garlic and fresh greens in dry white wine and butter sauce. It will work great for a romantic dinner.

Use good white wine you would drink yourself for this recipe to achieve best results. And serve remaining of the wine along with mussels later.

Steamed mussels go great with toast garlic bread or a baguette with garlic.

Boiled Snow Crab Legs with Old Bay Seasoning

January 19th, 2013 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

If you saw frozen snow crab legs in store and wanted to try them, but wasn’t sure how to cook them – this recipe is for you.

It is easy and fast idea for lunch or dinner, assuming the crab legs are sold pre-cooked (have somewhat orange-red color) and only need to be warmed up and seasoned with some spaces to taste.

You can cook raw crab legs like this also, it may require a bit more time for cooking.

Tuna Salad Sandwich

July 14th, 2012 in Fish, Main Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Tuna salad sandwich is a great choice of food for a lunch or to take with you when you are on the go.

This tuna salad with eggs, bell pepper and a bit of onions is easy to do, and can be stored in a fridge for couple of days if needed.

I use tuna chunks in water, but tuna in oil will work as well, if you like it more – use it.

Listed amount ingredients is enough for 11-12 sandwiches.

Crab Sticks Salad with Pickled Mushrooms and Apple

November 19th, 2011 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

I didn’t post salad recipes for a while now, so wanted to come up with something special this time.

I chose salad made of surimi crab sticks mixed with tender pickled mushrooms, grated apple, fresh dill and parsley and dressed with ground black pepper and a bit of mayo.

This mix may seem unusual (especially here in US), however it is very popular in post-USSR countries. You can find it under name “Salad Anshlag” in menus.

Some people use boiled mushrooms for this recipe, however I prefer mushrooms pickled following this recipe: they are very easy to do and are less plain than just boiled; but this is a matter of preference.

Crab Sticks Salad with Napa and Cucumber

May 28th, 2011 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

It is time for summer cookouts yet? I bet it is! Who said cookouts should be all meat and bread – add a bit of vegetables and crab sticks :)

Napa gives this salad tender filling; however you can substitute white cabbage for napa – it will work fine, just remember to tenderize shredded cabbage with your hands.

If you use frozen crab sticks, make sure they unfreeze completely and all extra liquid is removed before adding them to the salad.
