Default Portuguese Hake in Aspic (Pescada en Gelia) Recipe

  • 2 pounds (1 kg) hake section, cleaned
  • Cucumber Sauce (see recipe below)
  • Court-bouillon
  • 1 fresh chilli pepper, chopped
  • 1 mild green pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, finely sliced
  • 3 tablespoons lemon (or fresh lime) juice
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • A little each thyme and basil
  • Several sprigs of parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Several peppercorns
  • 3 celery stalks with leaves
  • Aspic
  • 3 tablespoons chicken broth
  • Gelatin, as required
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
How to cook Portuguese Hake in Aspic (Pescada en Gelia):

Cut the pieces of hake into steaks about 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) thick, not more.

Take a wide earthenware or other cooking vessel, large enough to accommodate the pieces of fish side by side.

Into it put 2 1/2 pints (1 1/2 liter) water and the ingredients for the Court-bouillon.

Bring this to the boil and let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Slide in the pieces of the hake, bring back to the boil and continue simmering until the fish is cooked (10 minutes or less).

Remove the hake, rid it of skin and bone and divide it into bite-size pieces. Strain the stock. This should yield nearly 1 3/4 pints (1 liter).

Add the chicken broth and the gelatin (following the directions on the packet as regards quantity and method). Add also the capers and the lemon juice.
Arrange the pieces of hake in an attractive and shallow dish so that they almost fill it. Pour the stock gently over the fish, which it should just cover, filling the dish almost to the brim.

A little chopped parsley or some thin slices of cucumber with scalloped edges can be placed on top as decoration.

Put the dish in the refrigerator to set. This will probably take 4 hours, but allow 6 or 8 to be sure.

Bring the Hake in Aspic to table in its dish and serve separately a Cucumber Sauce.

Cucumber Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1/2 pint (1/4 liter) double cream
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
How to cook Cucumber Sauce:
Pare the cucumber and cut it into fine slices or thin strips.
Drain these well and pat them dry with a towel.
Beat the cream until it is stiff. Add the lemon juice to it gradually, then the onions and chives (with salt if needed), stirring throughout.
Combine all this with the cucumber and chill it slightly before serving.

Default Spicy Vegetable Soup

Lynn's Malawgatany, also called "Rasam" (pronounced RUSSUM) in some parts of India, is an excellent tonic for the winter flu and cold season! If you don't have all day to stand by the soup pot - and who does at this time of year?! - this is a perfect crockpot recipe.

2 tablespoons sesame or corn oil
6 white onions, peeled and cut into rings
4 cloves of garlic - roasted and then chopped
4 - 5 cups vegetables of your choice (ie., green peppers, carrots, etc.) chopped
1 habanero chile, chopped (OPTIONAL - only use for SUPER HOT soup!)
4 tomatoes - chopped (add a small can of tomato paste for a richer stock)
teaspoon red pepper
teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
tablespoon tobasco
gallon of water
1. Heat the oil in a large stockpot and quickly saute onions, garlic.
2. Add all other chopped vegables, including the optional habanero, and saute. If you are using potatoes do NOT add them at this point.
3. Add chopped tomatoes and heat for approximately 10 minutes.
4. Mix all spices into vegetable mixture.
5. Add water to soup pot and bring to boil. Simmer for approximately 4 hours.
