4. Yakitori - Japanese Broiled Chicken

Categories: Outdoor gri, Poultry

Yield: 1 Servings      

3    Whole chicken breasts; skinned
1 bn Green onions
1/2 lb Chicken livers
2/3 c Soy sauce
1/3 c Dry sherry
2 ts Fresh ginger root; minced
1/4 c Water
1 ts Sugar

Remove any bone from the chicken. Cut into 1 inch cubes. Cut green onions into 3/4 inch lengths Cut the livers in half (optional)

Alternate the chicken cubes, scallions, and chicken livers on individual skewers (soaked in water, if bamboo). In a flat shallow glass or ceramic dish combine the remaining ingredients. Set the skewers in the soy mixture. Turn to coat all sides and let marinate 20 miutes, turning often or basting with the marinade. Grill the skewers 4-5 inches from hot coals or preheated broiler 8 minutes, turning often, until lightly brown and cooked through. Brush with marinade at least twice during cooking. Dip in toasted sesame seeds, if you wish.

NOTES : 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger can replace fresh ginger as many recipes vary with as many cooks, I'm sure the substitution of a = little vinegar for the sherry would be all right. perhaps a small onion cut in crescent shapes could substitute for the = green onions.

5. Zydeco Green Beans

Categories: Relishes, Appetizers, Vegetables, Hot, Tabasco

Yield: 1 Servings

2 1/4 c Water
3/4 c White Vinegar     
2 tb Sugar
1 tb Crushed Mustard Seeds
4 md Garlic Cloves, Thinly Sliced
3    Bay Leaves
1 1/2 ts Salt
1 1/2 ts Tabasco Pepper Sauce
1 lb Trimmed Green Beans

Zydeco Green Beans is actually a redundancy. The exuberant music of Louisiana's black French-speaking Creoles is called zydeco, an idiomatic phonetic version of les haricots, French for snap beans. Serve these green beans as a relish, or as "stirrers" for Bloody Marys.

In a large saucepan, stir together the water, vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, garlic, bay leaves, salt and Tabasco sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the beans. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until tender-crisp. Arrange the beans in a shallow dish and cover them completely with the vinegar mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve cold.
