That's the one I would like !

 

I also like them just covered in brown sugar and hot-smoked.  Might try a bit of maple syrup with it next time.

That's our go to. But I figured I'd try a couple of different things as there were three pieces. The parmesan crust was OK, but would probably be better on chicken than salmon. And the sous vide thing was really tasty, but probably better with different veggies.

 

P.S. not really sous vide, just in a bag in some hot water (started at 70C, cooled to about 45C and then back in the oven while the other stuff baked - probably didn't get over 50C again). Really melt in the mouth and worked well with the ginger & chili. This was the first time I'd tried it, so I might tweak it a little.

Yeah the 'When I cook my trout and had it for dinner..it was a surprise addition to the menu.'

 

If you can do a selfie of the catching of said trout then post it in the fishing thread.😉

I find that fish tend to be an inconvenience (to me) when I go fishing.

I prefer Zenning out with my feet over the side (boat, wharf, riverbank) than any attempts to catch any aquatic animal.

And the local guys are selling stuff they caught this morning anyway...

A quick suggestion.  We ran out of bread for toast when camping,  and I really like toast with my fried eggs.  So I whipped up some thick batter (just SR flour and water (or beer)) and battered some slices of spam.   Battered spam and eggs - a new gourmet delight !  :)

It's not really that new. It was regularly on the menu when I was a kid, and the old man was out of work for a while.

Oh well I only just thought of it.  :) 

Funny thing is, I hadn't eaten Spam for years. But when a friend of my wife's moved into a retirement home a couple of months ago, she gave the unopened contents of her pantry to the wife. Amongst the stuff was about 8 cans of Spam. The mrs was going to give it away, but I put my foot down and said no.

 

MMMM breakfast: battered Spam, sausage eggs and Spam, Spam eggs bacon and Spam, Spam eggs and Spam... Spam, Spam Spam and Spam... even the dog was happy.

Fresh Tassie scallops and locally caught school prawns (this afternoons runout tide) 2 hours out of the water. Bottle of pinot grigio and squeeze of lemon and let the scallops sit in the juice with a brush of chilli powder until the citric cooks them. Very sharp knife and double sashimi  thickness for the scallops with a flick of pepper and salt to finish off.

Cheap and fresh(well the schoolies are).

Was so good that I made it again but the schoolies went at smoko today and I shared none of them🤗 so it was the green prawns instead and the scallops.

Greens from the garden, sourdough to soak up the olive oil garlic chilli  brew and the stuff in the middle is baby bok choy from the garden done the Kylie Wong way. 

 

Wine is a Stanton+ Killeen Alvarinho.

Rather yummy actually. 2020 Alvarinho
