Omurice... Ahhh... I do love Omurice. Omurice is a Japanese style omelet (tamagoyaki) wrapped around fried rice, and sometimes some chicken.

 

My girlfriend used to eat this when she was younger, and I have been making it ever since I saw it on a Japanese TV show... You can do a quick search to find a bunch of easy recipes for it. Mine are usually chicken fried rice inside, and having ketchup and okonomi sauce drizzled on top.

Try this one if you have time.

 

Kedgeree

 

Curry powder in a traditional Scottish recipe? Yes, apparently it was a Scottish regiment serving in India that married local curry with smoked fish. "Finnan haddies" (smoked haddock from Glen Finnan in Scotland) are the best but most smoked fish is satisfactory.

 

 

Ingredients (to serve four people):

2 fillets of smoked haddock, bones and skin removed

2 hard boiled eggs, shelled and chopped finely (some people add more than 2 eggs)

Huevos Rancheros

One great benefit of growing up in California (LA actually) and having a Hispanic mother is being exposed at an early age to Mexican food. From the time I was 5 it was my job to prepare the salsa for the family. We have always had tortillas in the house like most people have bread in theirs. Consequently dishes that call for salsa and tortillas are likely to be prepared often, as we cook with what is on hand. Huevos rancheros is one of those dishes. A classic Mexican breakfast, huevos rancheros are fried eggs served on hot corn tortillas and smothered in cooked salsa. (Made them for lunch today and I'm getting hungry all over again just thinking about them.) In our home "huevos" can mean eggs either scrambledor fried. When they're fried the runny yolk mixes in with everything, the salsa, the tortillas. I love to take a piece of tortilla and dip it in the yolk and then the salsa. Aye aye aye, this is good.

Huevos Rancheros Recipe

  • Cook time: 20 minutes

The recipe is flexible, sometimes we use canned salsa and just add a few more chopped tomatoes and some chopped pickled jalapenos to make the sauce. Sometimes if we have some leftover refried beans, we'll spread some on the tortillas before topping them with the eggs and salsa. My mother has been known to add a pinch of sugar to the salsa sauce if she feels it's too acidic for her taste.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped (about a half cup)
  • 1 15-ounce can whole tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted, if you can get it (or 1 -2 large fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, when in season)
  • 1/2 6-ounce can diced green Anaheim chiles
  • Chipotle chili powder, adobo sauce, or ground cumin to taste (optional)
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • Butter
  • 4 fresh eggs
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

METHOD

1 Make the sauce first by softening the onions in a little olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Once translucent, add the tomatoes and the juice the tomatoes are packed in. Break up the tomatoes with your fingers as you put them in the pan. If you are using fresh tomatoes, chop them first, then add. Note that fresh tomatoes will take longer to cook as canned tomatoes are already cooked to begin with. Add chopped green chilies. Add additional chili to taste, either chipotle chili powder, adobo sauce, regular chili powder, or even ground cumin. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and let simmer while you do the rest of the cooking, stirring occasionally. Reduce to warm after it has been simmering for 10 minutes. Add salt to taste if needed.<br style="clear: both; ">

Supposing haddock to be unavailable, could I use kippered herring? Or should I go smoke my own fish from fresh?

 

Yes, any smoked fish will do!
