Happy Mutants food and drink topic (Part 2)

Coconut milk and curry tilapia.

Korean spicy meatballs.

ETA Some notes:

I have to improve the presentation of the dishes.

Ask my wife for more help when taking photos. She has a lot of good ideas and insights

Tilapia has A LOT of bones. You have to eat very carefully. The roof of my mouth felt like a pincushion.

Next time I’ll choose another fish, perhaps dogfish.

I wasn´t brave enough to go full Korean so didn´t put too much pepper.

Korean food warns its eaters of its spice level very easily. Bright red = DANGER!!

That´s me, pretending I´m going to get a beer, leaving the table.I never go full Korean, Bahiano, Mexican, Thai or Indian. I like pepper, but in small doses.

I’ve made Tteokbokki! Not the rice cakes themselves from scratch but i did make the sauce from scratch and it was easy and tasty :slight_smile: loooove the chewy texture of the rice cakes. And yes it was pretty spicy, but tolerable for me though if i were to make it again in the future i would definitely bring the heat down. My stomach doesn’t seem to handle spice as well as it used to, despite my taste buds loving it.

Edit: Also there is a variation of this dish that i would love to try making. It is
Gungjung Tteokbokk

Ooh Gungjung Tteokbokk looks great and the recipe is easy to make with ingredients I have at home or can easily get.

Now that i think about it i want to say i tried making it at home but i didnt really follow a recipe :stuck_out_tongue: i just looked at the ingredients and just… threw stuff together with what i had. But i still would like to make a more accurate attempt as i bet it would taste amazing. If you do make it please share.

Edit: When i did mine i did pan fry the rice cakes some (not a lot just enough to get the outside some light texture), and i really enjoyed it though i don’t know how typical doing so is for Koreans but i can imagine it’s not atypical to do.

Almost 200 year old hand written treasure trove of more than 150 yellowing, rag-paper pages containing dozens of recipes for everything from catsup to plague cures.
Also, I am aways knocked out over the lost art of long hand writing.

i have some vodka. i have some peanut butter, but i suppose i need smooth peanut butter for this… concoction. that is not something i keep on hand.

i do wonder if this “fat washing” is how they make bacon vodka?

Never heard of it before, but sounds like a fun experiment to try. Maybe try again. And maybe again.
