Greek tomato fritters (domatokeftedes)

These are the deliciously tasty Greek tomato fritters, domatokeftedes. I made them with cherry tomatoes, but you can make them with large tomatoes. The advantage is that they are completely vegan. Very crispy, I find them irresistible!

Greek zucchini and feta fritters, kolokythokeftede

As promised, I am back on the blog with new recipes after several trips. I went to Greece, which I loved a few years ago, and I really wanted to make these zucchini and feta fritters again, full of flavor, with dill and mint. They’ll be delicious crisp and warm, with a simple, fresh, lightly salted Greek yogurt. The contrast is fantastic!

Temaki

Temaki

I have been a total fan of sushi, sashimi, maki, temaki etc. for a long time. Even if of course the expertise is reserved to real professionals, we can still enjoy at home with temaki ready in less than an hour for a meal that will make your taste buds travel! You can of course adapt it to your desires and put the fish and garnish you prefer!

Portokalopita

Here is a Greek cake full of sunshine and flavors! Its main ingredients are the orange and the filo pastry, which must be left to dry an hour before, in order to reduce it to pieces. Very simple to make, it has a rather incredible consistency thanks to the filo pastry and the traditional addition of syrup full of orange zest. Obviously it’s a fairly rich cake, but so good, especially since it’s occasional! I can only recommend that you take the time to squeeze the oranges to obtain a fresh juice, the dessert will only be better.

Grilled broccolinis, tahini sauce with Espelette pepper

How can you resist these beautiful green vegetables, roasted in the oven with olive oil and served with a very creamy and tasty Espelette pepper sauce? This is not my intention and on the contrary, I would like you to discover, for those who do not know them yet, broccolini, a cousin of broccoli! An absolute delight!

Spring Maki with Rice Leaf

This recipe is ideal for those who do not want raw fish or nori seaweed leaves. We see these rolls everywhere nowadays and they are a real fresh delight! When the good weather finally comes, it is a pleasure to enjoy. It’s all much simpler than it seems!

Coquillettes Ham Tartufata

With friends, we sometimes eat at the Bouillon in Paris. It’s really inexpensive, well served and very good! I had ordered this dish several times and I thought I could offer it to you, because it is so simple and can be made in 5 minutes flat! With the cold weather, it is the kind of small dishes quickly done well that delight the taste buds. In the end it is almost a childish dish adapted to adults, with the tartufata that totally transforms it!

Shrimps and sugar snap peas, spicy sauce

Here is a simple and effective dish, ready in just a few minutes. The longest will be to cook the plain rice to accompany it! I offer you these crunchy prawns in a spicy sweet and sour sauce, with sugar snap peas and a few Thai basil leaves, for an ultra tasty meal. The hardest to find is Thai basil, but know that it grows very well in pots indoors! Convenient to always have on hand, if like me you are a fan!

Wasabi Crispy Shrimp

As I travel much less than before, I look at my notebooks in which I wrote down the dishes I had tasted abroad. This dish of crispy wasabi prawns really stuck with me and I had tasted it in Shanghai some time ago. It took me a long time to find the right proportions and since I finally discovered the way to make fried food extra crispy, I am having fun making the delights I had in mind. It’s done with this dish which is very special. I recommend if you try it, maybe only start with half the proportions. The “sauce” that coats the shrimp is very very special. But a delight when you dare to venture there!

Amaretti Pudding

I recently went to Bologna and I had tasted an amaretti pudding there which I really enjoyed. It’s a bit like an egg custard, but with more powdered amaretti, amaretto liqueur and here a few dark chocolate chips. A real dense and melting delight at the same time, especially when tasted chilled. A very original recipe that I propose to you today!
