tuna waldorf salad

here’s my version of tuna waldorf salad

drain canned white tuna chunks, core and chop two medium red apples in bite sizes, put in a bowl and toss with two tablespoons of lemon juice. set aside. in a separate bowl, combine about half a cup of mayonnaise and a tablespoon of mustard. add a teaspoon of honey, finely chopped onions and a dash of salt and pepper to taste. mix together well.

pour dressing into the tuna and apple mixture, toss gently to coat. cover and chill for an hour. serve with lettuce, sprinkle with roasted walnuts, dried raisins, and grated cheddar cheese.

tadaaah! rob’s tuna waldorf salad! try it! ūüėČ

button mushrooms and peaches

our catering crew has been gone for almost a week now which left us of no one to cook meals for our crew. the set-up became cook-your-own-thing where the store-room and the walk-in freezer for food items was open and you can take what you want to cook. being a pescetarian i had limited options but have been “creative” of my self-made dishes, lol! here is a sample of my dinner earlier:

button mushrooms with garlic and cashew nuts in olive oil

in a pan, heat olive oil in medium heat. sauté garlic until golden brown, set aside the garlic and keep oil in pan. add button mushrooms cut in quarters and stir-fry for about ten minutes. add back the garlic, put some peppercorns, rosemary and cashew nuts, salt to taste. simmer for five more minutes. serve with butter toast.

cinnamon soft baked peaches

preheat oven to 350 degrees. in a tin foil, arrange drained canned peaches, dot with butter, a teaspoon of honey for every pit, sprinkle with cinnamon powder and white sugar. fold tin foil on each side and crimp to secure. bake in oven for 30 to 45 minutes. serve with vanilla ice cream.

so that was chef rob’s pescetarian dish for the day. keep posted for more until the catering crew is found. hehe.

filet-o-fish

after i started practising pescetarianism years ago, the only sandwich that i can only order at mcdonalds was the egg mcmuffin (less the bacon or the sausage) and the mcfish, or better well-known as the filet-o-fish.

 The Filet-O-Fish contains a battered fish patty made mostly from Alaskan pollock and/or hoki, half a slice of processed cheese and 30g (1 oz.) of tartar sauce (made with dill relish and seasoning) on a steamed bun. ~ from wikipedia

i¬†suddenly craved for this yesterday and hurriedly went to town in khobar¬†to get one.¬† as they sing the mcdonalds¬†song back in manila –¬†pa pa¬†ra pa pa .. love ko ‘to!
