Crunchy Wasabi-Crusted Fish with Red-Cabbage Slaw

1 Comment 22 August 2011

Thank you Raquel Franco for sharing your delicious gourmet kosher fish dinner recipe with us!

“This recipe  with wasabi  is delicious ‘n not too spicy.

Perfect change for an end of summer dinner!”

by Raquel Franco

For Wasabi Crusted Fish:

  • 4 (3/4- to 1-inch-thick) skinless white-fleshed fish fillets, such as Pacific cod or halibut (6 oz each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste (from a tube)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs)

For Slaw:

  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 seedless cucumber (usually plastic-wrapped)
  • 8 oz shredded red cabbage (4 cups; from a 10-oz package)
  • Accompaniment: pickled ginger (sushi ginger)

Prepare fish: Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 400°F. Line a shallow baking pan with foil.

  1. Pat fillets dry, then arrange in baking pan. Sprinkle salt all over fillets. Stir together wasabi paste and mayonnaise in a bowl, then spread tops of fillets with half of mayonnaise and sprinkle with half of panko. Turn fillets over and spread with remaining mayonnaise, then sprinkle with remaining crumbs.
  2. Bake until fish is just cooked through, 12 to 16 minutes, then broil 4 to 6 inches from heat until crumbs on top are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Make slaw while fish bakes: Stir together vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Halve cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice. Add to dressing along with cabbage and stir to coat. Serve slaw alongside fish.

A Theme So Sweet :

By Kineret Spector

Every  Jewish holiday gathering brings an opportunity to spend time with those we love, teach our kids to appreciate their rich Jewish  culture and heritage, and reflect on how the symbols and messages that are associated with the holiday apply to our day to day life.  In my case, that is also an opportunity to bring out my creative side! Elaborate tablescapes and place settings with symbols of the holiday appease my inner theme junky, and add a fun and festive personal touch for my guests.

Rosh Hashana is packed with theme potential ranging from the tangible to the philosophical.  As I write this, my mind is swirling with ideas for this year – first night is less than a week away! For inspiration, I “research” online, browse the latest at my favorite home goods stores, and go back to my tablescapes of yesteryear.

Last year, I found beautiful and inexpensive yin and yang dishes that not only represented balance and cycle of life, but were also the perfect vehicle for my apples and honey!  Colorful linen napkins folded into lotus flowers symbolized the freshness of our Jewish New Year , and various exotic fruit  – representing newness and new experiences upon which we recite shehechiyanu –  made for perfect name card holders.  The rest of the table was adorned with big platters of more “new fruit”, fresh flowers, and candles in colorful votive holders.

For more Jewish holiday table scape ideas and inspiration to spruce up your holiday table this year, please visit BSG TABLESCAPES  on Facebook and browse by holiday under the photos section.

 Cheers to a Sweet New Year for all!

Agave Lemonade

2 Comments 17 August 2011

This recipe is easier than regular lemonade recipes because it uses raw agave syrup.  Agave is a liquid sugar (with a low glycemic index), so you don’t have to spend the time dissolving the sugar in the water, or ending up with the sugar sitting on the bottom of your lemonade glass.

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup raw agave syrup
  • 6 cups water
  • ice

sliced lemons and limes for garnish

1. Combine the lemon juice, agave and water in a pitcher.
2. Stir to combine.
3. Pour over ice and serve.

How to Make Fancy Napkin Rings- Cheap and Chic!

4 Comments 14 August 2011

Please “LIKE” this post!!!!

I have to admit that since the inception of The Jewish Hostess, my Shabbat and holiday tables have slowly evolved  become much more creative. Why? Because of all of YOU- my Jewish Hostess readers. By sending in your own Summery Shabbat and holiday pics, and by telling me how inspired you have become from each other, I’ve brought out the kid in me and made my own arts and crafts napkin ring project.

For about a dollar a piece you can twist and glue these pretty floral napkin rings, and when you get tired of them you can head back out to the craft store and make a brand new bunch! I made about 24 napkin rings for this past Shabbat. They were so pretty on the table if I do say so myself.

Enjoy my Cheap and Chic napkin rings, and send me pics if you decide to make your own homemade version!

1-For a cheap base for your napkin rings buy this rustic wire available HEREin several colors.

You will also need a GLUE GUN, and a WIRE CUTTER.

2- Cut a 12 inch piece of wire at twist about three times to make a thick base to glue stuff onto your your napkin ring.


3. CLICK HERE for my SECRET place to buy cool  pieces to glue on to your napkin ring.

All of these “vase fillers” are perfect add-ons for your brand new instant napkin rings.

I think I bought the entire Pottery Barn  out of their vase fillers. The sales lady must have thought that I was nuts, cause when I like something I can get a little compulsive, and I’m sure that at the end of the day I could have bought a brand new set of Kim Seybert napkin rings for about the same price! (not really- but I’m scared to see my Amex bill this month! Don’t be like me and buy out the whole store! Only buy what you need!!!)

CLICK HERE to buy this nice green moss, which makes a nice base for your shells and artificial hydrangeas.

4- If you live near New York City, go to the flower market and you can find tons of artificial flowers. Click HERE for more Info, but basically its on 28 Street between 6 and 7 Avenue, or you can Google and find a site like THIS for artificial flowers. Beware- not all artificial flowers are the same quality!!!

5- Start glueing! I like these twig potpourri branch items from Pottery Barn- they make a great base for the rest of your creation.

6- Keep glueing!

6- They don’t all have to look alike!

7- Voila!

8- All done!

9- Peel off dried up glue from your fingers….

10- NOW GO GET A MANICURE!!!!!

Don’t miss a single great table setting!!! SUBSCRIBE HERE for a weekly update!!

Shabbat Shalom! Check out my SUMMERY Shabbat table using these napkin rings HERE!

My Summery Lavender and Blues Shabbat Table

8 Comments 14 August 2011

Please “LIKE” my SHABBAT TABLE! 

First of all, I would like to thank all of my Jewish Hostesses for sending in their beautiful summery Shabbat table pics for our “Summery Shabbat Table Contest”.

I also knew that if I didn’t post my own Summery Shabbat table pics pretty soon then I would probably get officially fired as “The Jewish Hostess” by all of my wonderful readers, so here goes:

I decided to see if I could mix all of the  purple, lavender and blue tabletop items in my house,and see if I could whip up a “Summery Shabbat” table for my family to enjoy.
On Tuesday I was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous bouquet of hydrangeas and roses from a friend(by Sheila Bibi Fine Flowers).  The flowers were still so pretty and alive by Friday morning, I decided to separate them and divide them up into short blue juice glasses that I’ve had forever.

I placed them on gold leaf trays that I bought last summer from One Kings Lane.The blue flower candle holders are also from One Kings Lane.

I always find great table top treasures from that site when I don’t have time to shop around in the stores. I placed tea lights in blue glass votive that I found in Pier One imports about 10 years ago.

Atop the mauve laquered dining room table( that one belonged to my parents), I placed three cool tablecloths that were also purchased from One Kings Lane.

(They were originally labeled as towels, so I bought them thinking they were cool as kitchen towels. When they came in HUGE I decided to use them as tablecloths instead of returning them.)

In the center of the table below I placed some flowers atop a gold sprayed mosaic tray that my daughter made in summer camp a couple of years ago.

 

Note the artwork by Irene Mamiye in the background above.

 

My homemade napkin rings top off each plain white Pottery Barn Caterer’s plate below. 

 HERE’S HOW to make THESE pretty floral napkin rings yourself.

 

 

Purple glass goblets and place mats (above) purchased last summer.

What a Hanukka Table! By Lorene Sasson

4 Comments 12 August 2011

Lorene, there are no words to say how much I LOVE your Hanukka table!!! I’m so happy that the table setting pics on The Jewish Hostess inspired you to make your own holiday table so much more memorable and festive for your own family. I love that this site is bringing all of us just a drop closer! Its so much fun peeking into everyone else’s dining room on a holiday night!!! Marlene

“Hi Marlene,

Just want to say that Holidays have become a bigger deal in my home than ever before -so I would like to thank you so much. If it wasnt for you I wouldnt give my table settings that extra push that it should have.
Chanukah is one of my favorites just because its a fun week for the kids and its so joyous.

This year I was going to go out of the box when it came to the color scheme but I just couldn’t because Chanukah for me will always be about blue and white. However, with all the Menorahs that I have, I always use the first one that my husband and I bought together. Its a gradient of blue which reflected on my choice for the table scheme.

I purchased my navy beaded chargers from Bed Bath and Beyond, along with the napkin rings which matched my menorah to the T.
I got the silver branches, candles, blue ornaments, star of David confetti and beads from Michael’s.
Everyone received a star box on their plate with a little ‘childish’ gift.- what else but chocolate coins and a dreidel.
I was so excited that the colors I found were exactly what I needed.

I just had to attach a pic of one of my desserts because it came out so nice. I bought clear jello (I guess they dont make kosher blue jello) put a few drops of blue food coloring and Voila blue jello… Kids were happy and so was I !!!! Lorene Sasson”

Kids Chicken Kabobs with Crushed Potato Chips

1 Comment 10 August 2011

I found this great kosher recipe for kids on Gourmet Kosher Cooking. Can’t wait to feed the little ones and enjoy a romantic night out!

Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe

  • 4 boneless, skinless,(organic) chicken cutlets cut into strips
  • 1 ounce (about 15)  Flavored Onion Rings snacks from the package .(you can find healthier  kosher versions of the traditional “Wise”  brand bagged onion rings in your favorite Health Food store.
  • ½ ounce (about 7 chips)  potato chips (pareve)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 dashes garlic powder, or to taste
  • 2 dashes salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg or 1/8 cup egg substitute
  • Chicken skewers (if wooden, soak for 30 minutes in water)

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Carefully slide each chicken strip lengthwise onto a skewer. Set aside.
  3. In a large sealable plastic bag, combine the onion rings, potato chips, and all the seasonings. If you like, add extra seasonings to taste. Seal the bag and crush contents until reduced to a coarse breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Prepare a large baking sheet by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray. Whisk egg into a small bowl. Take a chicken skewer and dunk it in the egg, evenly coating the chicken. Gently shake off the excess liquid and then lay chicken skewer in the seasoned crumbs. Rotate the skewer pressing it into the crumbs to evenly coat the entire piece. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the chicken skewers.
  5. Bake in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, carefully flipping skewers about halfway through cooking, until chicken is cooked through and coating is crispy. Cool for a few minutes. Eat plain or with duck sauce for dipping.

Turquoise On Your Table

No Comments 10 August 2011

Shelly Anteby effortlessly  breezes through each day  in her classic style and always makes sure to pull off a unique and daring table setting weekly.

“I start pulling out my Shabbat table setting from Wednesday. I pull out and see what works. Its not planned. By Thursday my table is set. This week I planned a turquoise theme. You could call it Indian or Moroccan inspired, because of the turquoise color and the stones. I started with the turquoise Kim Seybert runner and then offset it with seafoam green mother of pearl chargers as a base for each plate. I topped the chargers with clear turquoise oversized dishes that I found in IKEA.

My turquoise Limoges salad plates helped accent the jeweled napkin rings.I love to find table accents in Home Goods or Target.

In the center of the table I usually raise my salads and appetizers in little bowls on top of a simple glass tray. That becomes my centerpiece.

The point is to have fun with your  Shabbat table setting and just be spontaneous.”

Mother of Pearl and Coral Themed Shabbat Table Setting

6 Comments 06 August 2011

“Last week I started to take out my props to start setting my Shabbat table. For some reason I kept getting interrupted. First the phone kept ringing. Then the doorbell, then the plumber asking questions about everything except going to the moon! It was not meant for me to finish or let alone even start! At that point, a friend stopped by with her six year old daughter and she was the one who basically told me what she liked from my dishes and napkins,  and the rest of the things that you see on my table!

So there you go, its so easy to make a table work if you play with accessories in your home. Even a six year old can do it. Just don’t be intimidated . There are no rules to follow. We used a double place mat. One is brown beads and the other is sea foam green mother of pearl. I found the dishes in home goods. What a score! They had service for 24! The napkin rings are  coral beads by Kim Seybert, and my six year old friend insisted on the color napkin! It was fun to see that anything she wanted to use seemed to look fine!

I think next week I will call her again!” Shelly Antebi

Quick and Easy Zaatar Grilled Tilapia with Mango Avocado Salsa

4 Comments 02 August 2011

Here’s a quick and easy way to keep that barbeque going- even during the nine days of Ab!

This easy grilled tilapia recipe was especially simple because the salsa and marinade ingredients are staples in my fridge.  By 4 o’clock the fresh fish was delivered to my home from I and D Glatt in Brooklyn, and I was able to have the first batch of grilled fish ready for the little ones that come off the camp bus at 4:20.

(Of course the day NEVER ends, being that color war  broke out today, and right after dinner we were off to buy BLUE TEAM face paint  from Michael’s Crafts…by the way- if you decide to shop there any time soon, make sure you print out your 20% off coupon!- I was the only one in the store that didn’t have one!!!! )

Enjoy this delicious recipe! Even the picky eaters loved it!!! Marlene

Try this Fish and Veggie Grilling Basket from Amazon!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 squeezes of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons crushed garlic
  • zaatar spice
  •  ground black pepper
  •  salt
  • 2 lbs tilapia,  or lemon sole fillets.

Mango Salsa:

  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • Kernels  from one whole corn
  • 1 cubed avocado (add at the last minute with lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (check out the video above- How to seed a chili pepper)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
 Directions
  1. Whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil, parsley, garlic, basil, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and pour into a bowl. Zest one lemon, add the zest ,and then squeeze the juice from the lemon into the bowl. Add the tilapia fillets, coat with the marinade and let rest until salsa is chopped.
  2. Prepare the mango salsa by combining the mango, red bell pepper, red onion, parsley, and jalapeno pepper in a bowl. Add the lime juice, lemon juice and toss.Season to taste with salt and pepper, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and light spray grill pan.
  4. Remove the tilapia from the marinade and discard marinade. Grill the fillets until the fish is no longer translucent in the center, and flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Serve the tilapia topped with mango salsa.

Healthy Brunch By the Beach by Rina Dweck

1 Comment 01 August 2011

My friend Rina Dweck is a superb hostess, always whipping up summer salads and main dishes with ease.  Savor the photos below which illustrate her typical Shabbat lunch during the summer months.  Rina’s menu always  focuses on vegetarian, Mediterranean and healthy dishes.  She only uses fresh produce, preferably fresh, organic and locally grown. Friends and family always feel very comfortable at Rina’s table because everyone is involved in the preparation.

Her meals always taste especially unbelievable because she lives right on the ocean, and when you’ve got that view- there are absolutely no complaints!!! 

When she is not cooking, Rina also happens to be a fabulous artist! Check out Rina’s  Facebook  page PROJECT FACE where she  re-invents her own face daily.

Could these pics all be THE SAME GIRL????? Amazing!!!!

 

 

Enjoy! Marlene
