This dish was made quite awhile ago so I’m doing some guess work as to what is all on the plate. Wow it has been awhile since the last post! Time to get back on the foodie train because we’ve got an engagement party coming up and there will be tons of good eats!
Anyways, here we have charred swordfish on a bed of sauteed in butter and sugar cherries and some sweet saskatoons picked fresh for the dish. Garnishing the dish are some pickled lemon slices and microgreens.
June 13-15, Porkapalooza came to Edmonton! I wish I could have gone. If I went I would have fan-girled so hard because Diva Q was there judging the competition and that woman knows her barbecue!
With this in mind we had an epic dinner of ribs!
Let me introduce you to our dinner: Pork side ribs braised in red wine, garlic, carrots, ketchup, hickory barbecue sauce, random dry spices baked for 4 hours at 275 degrees. Underneath the ribs is a sauté’ of tomatoes, cherries, green & yellow beans and acorn squash. Even though squash is not yet in season here in Alberta, we froze some off from last year. We’ve come to appreciate having a little bit of Summer/Fall food in our dishes throughout the year. Especially in the winter.
As a finishing touch we added cashews in with the vegetables and an apple vinegar which adds a great tart element to the dish. Microgreens and parsley add a splash of green.
