    The Curious Case of the Self-Immolating Kipper

    Post by chris c on Thu Apr 21 2016, 22:34

    I put it under the grill and after it was half done turned it over. While I was getting distracted with other things, it arched its back and stuck its head and tail into the gas flames.

    By the time I smelled the smoke it was well alight. Have you ever tried to blow out a flaming kipper? It's not easy. All that fish oil.

    The rest of it went down well with some toasted almonds, watercress and a couple of buttered oatcakes.

    Then bugger me if I didn't burn some broccoli, I forgot to turn the gas down after the water came to the boil and it boiled dry. Actually the charred bits tasted quite good, I might try the same again under more control.

    Apart from that I've mostly been eating the same old same old, but it never gets boring . . .

    Oh Chris ... so true, it never gets boring.
    Thank you for making me chuckle at your poor Kipper getting a little bit too hot!!!

    It reminds me of when cooking for the family and just occasionally, the fire alert/alarm  would go off, they then knew dinner was ready LOL   sunny

    All the best Jan

    Chris said "Then bugger me if I didn't burn some broccoli"

    Talking of kippers ...
    Have you tried Celeriac Dauphinoise with them?



    Celeriac Dauphinoise
    1 celeriac
    300ml double cream
    100 grams mature cheddar cheese, grated
    Dried mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste.
    Optional 2 cloves garlic

    Cut the celeriac into quarters then peel. Slice the celeriac into 5 mm thick pieces. Place a layer in a baking dish and add some double cream and dried herbs, salt and pepper. Continue layering up. Place in a hot oven 200 centigrade and cook for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and add a layer of grated cheddar cheese. Place back in oven and cook until cheese is golden brown. Serves 4

    One of our favourite foods this dish goes with anything, meat, fish and even tastes great warmed up for breakfast with a couple of poached eggs and some mushrooms, or try with some kippers, great at anytime and won’t raise BG numbers.

    Celeriac details taken from here http://thelowcarbdiabetic.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/great-grub-celeriac.html

    All the best Jan

    Could have been worse, like smoked mackerel. Now that's an open the window job.
