    Recipe #140689

    A puree of parsley and scallions mixed with lemon juice and oil both flavors the couscous and acts as a sauce for the fish. The taste of flat-leaf parsley really comes through if you use the flat-leaf variety. Any mild-tasting fish fillets will go well with the relatively delicate sauce. Try lake perch, whiting, croaker, drum, or bass, or of course, any of the flounder family, such as lemon or gray sole. Variation: Flounder with Basil and Parsley Couscous - Make the herb puree with 1/4 cup fresh basil and 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves. Wine: Match the tartness of the lemon juice with an acidic white wine. Try a good-quality Soave or Orvieto from Italy. From African Quick From Scratch Fish & Shellfish, Food & Wine.

    Recipe #140691

    Dress up that ordinary grilled chicken to create an exotic Mediterranean meal that will excite your family and friends. These 4 marinades will transform your menu into an international culinary delight. Whether you use whole butterflied poussins, game hens, broiler halves, chicken parts or boneless chicken cubes on skewers, you will find the following marinades intensely flavorful. Marinate the meat overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before cooking. If you like, thread blanched vegetables such as sweet pepper and onion chunks, onto skewers and cook alongside the chicken (or thread them on the same skewers). Serve the chicken with fresh lemon wedges and a traditional side dish or salad with bread or pitas and watch it disappear. Cooking times vary.I have been told the Egyptian marinade is especially good on whole butterflied squab (pigeon). I adjusted the amount of lemon juice in the Lebanese marinade if you love lemon, go for the 1/2 a cup.... if lemon is just "okay" stick with the 1/4 cup.

    Serve these tasty sosaties over rice and chopped fruit such as banana or mango. The marinating time is at least overnight and up to 3 days, plan accordingly. You can also use beef or pork (pork is totally non-traditional) for this recipe. You can use the lemon water as a substitute, however Tamarind is traditionally used in this recipe to add a sour note to balance the sweet flavour. The easiest way to buy tamarind is in cans (Goya) in the Mexican Food section. But it is also sold in packets as a pulp, it looks like pulped dates. You will not be using the pulp, but water made from the pulp. Soak about 100 grams of pulp in water for 10-20 minutes. Squeeze the tamarind pulp with your hand to squeeze out the sour juices. Use the water and keep the pulp in the fridge to reuse. You can reuse the pulp several times until it loses it sourness.

    Recipe #140561

    This traditional South African Melktert or Milk Tart is a variation of an egg custard pie which originated with the Dutch settlers who came South Africa in the 17th Century. Melktert was then adapted and made a purely South African creation by the Cape Malays. Apparently wives reputations hang on their Melkterts and recipes are family heirlooms. So, for something exotic and a bit different, give this a try.
