21july- 1 link to 100 easy, fast recipes

The 100 easiest, fastest recipes. ever.

There are some fun ideas in here, both as complete thoughts and as good jumping off points for a more elaborate meal. and I don't know why the font size varies so dramatically.

19. Basquian lemon shrimp

In a bowl, mix together zest from half a lemon, its juice, a finely minced garlic clove, a small spoonful of finely chopped red onion, a small handful of pitted and coarsely chopped oil-cured black olives, a few coarsely chopped smoked anchovies, a dash of aged sherry vinegar, a glug of extra-virgin olive oil, and a pinch of pimentón de la Vera. Toss in six to eight cooked and shelled prawns and season with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Serve over a few thick slices of grilled peasant bread. (Pimentón de la Vera is available at brindisa.co.uk.)

89. Fresh strawberries with almond crème anglaise

Put 100g chopped almonds in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until beginning to toast, about three minutes. Add 200ml each of milk and cream, 120g sugar and four egg yolks, and whisk well to combine. Cook, whisking almost constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not let it boil. While the sauce is still hot, strain it through a sieve and let cool a bit. To serve, put a handful of washed, hulled and quartered strawberries in each dish, drizzle with the warm sauce and garnish with 50g slivered almonds.
