2 cups fish stock (see note)
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground bay leaf (available at some supermarkets and The Spice House)
1 teaspoon white pepper
2 cups whipping cream (milk may be substituted, but soup will be less creamy)
1 cup bottled clam juice (no MSG)
1 1/2 cups potatoes in 1-inch chunks (about 2 large potatoes)

In stockpot, saute onions in olive oil until clear. Add carrots and celery and continue to saute about 5 minutes. Add chopped clams with their juice and continue to saute, 2 to 3 minutes. Add fish stock, seasonings and cream to mixture. Bring to boil.

Add bottled clam juice and potatoes. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. If necessary, chowder may be thickened with mixture of cornstarch and water. Chowder should be consistency of cold whipping cream. Taste and adjust seasonings to taste. Makes about 8 servings.

Ernest's Orleans Fried Shrimp and Sauce

Post  justmecookin on Thu Sep 11, 2008 9:52 am

Ernest's Orleans Fried Shrimp and Sauce

Jumbo shrimp, butterflied
1 egg, lightly beaten
Yellow corn flour
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil

Sauce
Hellmann's or homemade mayonnaise
Louisiana mustard (such as Zatarain's)
Freshly prepared horseradish
Fresh celery with leaves, finely chopped
Fresh parsley, finely chopped
Fresh garlic, finely chopped

To butterfly shrimp: Peel off shell, leaving tail on. With a small sharp knife, make a shallow cut down the center of the back, devein and wash. Place shrimp, cut-side up on a chopping block and deepen cut to split shrimp but not cutting completely through, leaving the tail intact. Shrimp should now open almost flat. Dry between paper towels.

To fry shrimp: Heat a good grade of oil to 350 degrees, using a deep fat fryer. Dip shrimp in beaten egg, then in corn flour. (Corn flour may be purchased at our local fish markets.) Shake off excess flour. Shrimp may be prepared for frying earlier in the day and refrigerated if desired.

When the oil has reached 350 degrees, drop in the shrimp, a few at a time. As soon as the shrimp come to the top of the oil, remove immediately from pan. Place on paper toweling and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with Ernest's famous sauce.

To make sauce: Mix equal amounts of Hellmann's mayonnaise or homemade mayonnaise, Louisiana mustard and freshly prepared horseradish. With a French chef's knife, chop the celery, parsley and garlic. Add to mayonnaise mixture, stir well and refrigerate.

Ernesto's Mexican Food Navajo Chicken

Post  justmecookin on Thu Sep 11, 2008 10:07 am

Ernesto's Mexican Food Navajo Chicken

2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into half-inch cubes
4 Pasilla or Ancho chiles
8 California chiles
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups carrots, sliced
1 cup onion, sliced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
1 cup corn
1 pinch pepper
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cumin
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons cooking oil

The base sauce for this dish is made with a two-to-one combination of California chiles and Pasilla or Ancho chiles. Start by bringing three to four cups of water to a boil. Prepare the peppers by removing stems. Add the peppers to the water and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until soft.

Puree the chiles and garlic in a blender, then strain into a pan and add a pinch of cumin, a pinch of pepper and a pinch of salt. Stir to mix. Bring the sauce to a medium-thick consistency by slowly mixing in a flour slurry made up of three tablespoons of flour mixed with 1/4 cup water.

In a small pan, brown the cubed chicken, carrots, mushrooms and onions in three tablespoons of oil. Make sure the chicken is browned evenly on all sides (this should take about ten minutes).

Remove all excess oil, stir in pureed ingredients, add the corn, and let simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes. Taste for flavor, and adjust seasonings as necessary. For more spiciness, add jalapeño peppers
