Huh? Actually, just kind of playing around. This weekend I finally have some time to cook again and the Missus has me doing it with a vengeance. Her favorite dish for the weekend was this:
The fun with the name started when I decided to make Potato pancakes.......pommes darfine, hah! I really wanted a smoked infused scallop, but the problem being also getting a nice carmelization on it as well. So, like I did on a previous occasion with bluefin tuna, I got my stovetop smoker going full tilt and did a very hot smoke for 6 minutes. I then removed it from the smoker. Earlier I had rinsed, dried, and chopped collards (chou vert). Which I ended up chopping a bit thicker than a chiffonade. While the smoker was going I grated garlic and onions, squeezing out a good amount of the moisture. I then julienned the potato, seasoned, mixed together, formed and put aside. I then sauteed the collards, added grated garlic, and a dash of red win vinegar to give it that "pop". Potatoes were done next. While the potatoes were draining, I quickly seared the scallops over super high heat.......
The Missus loved it....though I'm thinking I need some sauce for this the next time....piquillo pepper based perhaps.
Anyway, I thought it would be funny to translate into French......so you could then call me "Fancy Pants prétentieux"
Pretentious Fancy Pants!
So what did you cook this weekend?
