Spiced Crusted Chilean Sea Bass for Passover

3 Comments 07 March 2012

Dear Jewish Hosts and Hostesses,

If you are looking for some tasty recipes for Passover, than this is an easy one to try.

One of the reasons that I like Chilean sea bass is that it doesn’t have that “salmon smell”, so if you are having company you wont have to air out the house before your guests come charging in. This sea bass recipe has the juiciness of a fried fish but is of course, assembled and baked in a mess-free flash.

I love it a a main dish for one of the Yom Tov nights, as after  I hopefully survive the Passover  seders AND a Friday night, I know I wont be  in the mood to look at meat for the next couple of days. Enjoy!

Marlene

Kosher Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 Seabass fish fillet sliced thin.
  • 3 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup of matzo meal 0r whole wheat matzo crushed in cuisinart.
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2  cup unsalted nuts (pistachio, pecans, macadamia, walnuts may be used) (I used pecans)
  • lemon juice
  • kosher salt
  • cumin
  • black pepper
  • oregano

Passover Recipe Directions:

  1. Place parchment paper on pan.
  2. Place fish on paper and sprinkle  with lemon juice.

  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or till done.
  7. If you don’t eat nut on the Passover then just mix the matzo meal and chopped matzo with the spices, and sprinkle according to the directions….

Don’t Miss These Two Kosher Liquors for Your Purim Seudah and Gourmet Mishloach Manot!

No Comments 04 March 2012

Dear Hostesses,

Even though this is a sponsored post, I have to honestly tell you that the instant I opened up my bottle of Heering  Coffee Liquor, I closed my eyes and felt like I was in coffee heaven.  The pure aroma of this sweet liquor made me want to swirl a drop of  heavy cream into this perfect blend of Caribbean rum with coffee and cocoa. Throw in a couple of ice cubes and I’m almost  relaxing on a beach in St Barths. Who cares if I didn’t make my hammentashen yet? My packed carry-on is at the front door!

Ok- so when I opened my eyes I realized that my Jet Blue flight was going to have to wait, and instead of Googling “exotic Caribbean vacations”, I Googled “pareve tiramisu”.

A perfect recipe for a meat Purim Seudah….

Pareve Tiramisu Trifle

courtesy of Gourmet Kosher Cooking

Cookie Layer:
2 packages Ladyfingers
4 heaping teaspoons instant espresso
Hot water to dissolve the espresso in about ¼ cup
½ cup Heering Coffee Liquor (only $24.99- Purchase HERE)

Mix together espresso, water and liqueur.
pareve tiramisu

Center Layers:
1 8-ounce pareve chocolate bar, in shavings
3 Tablespoons cinnamon

Cream Layer:
5 eggs, separated
5 tablespoons sugar
1 package tofutti cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 small container pareve whipping cream, whipped
Extra whipping cream for the top

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Separately beat the yolks with both sugars until pale yellow. Add the tofutti cream cheese and the vanilla extract to combine. Fold in the egg whites. Fold in the whipped cream and chill until using.

To assemble:

Dip ladyfinger cookies in the coffee mixture (do this individually and quickly otherwise the cookies will be too mushy). Layer the bottom of the trifle bowl decoratively with the soaked cookies. Spoon 1/4 of the cream mixture over the ladyfingers. Sprinkle generously with chocolate then cinnamon. Repeat with more ladyfingers on top of the cinnamon layer, then cream, chocolate and cinnamon. Repeat 4 times. Top with the extra whipped cream and more chocolate and cinnamon. Chill until serving

*This can be made in individual dishes or a low dish. Keep in the refrigerator to cut out pieces.

Another not-to-be-missed fabulous liquor by the Heering family is their fruity Cherry liquor! 

Nestle a basket of fresh cherries in with this classy bottle and you’ve got one impressive Mishloach Manot!

One recipe to try from this cocktail inspired  blog Through The Liquor Glass:

Some more cocktails to serve:

Cherry Royal

  • 1 part Heering Cherry Liqueur
  • 4 parts champagne or sparkling wine

Pour Cherry Heering liqueur and champagne into a champagne flute and serve ice cold.

Cherry Fizz

  • 2 oz Cherry Heering Liqueur
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Carbonated water
  • 1 Cherry

Shake Cherry Heering and lemon juice over ice and pour into a highball glass with 2 ice cubes in it. Ad carbonated water and a cherry.

Cherry Ginger Martini

  • 1 part Heering Cherry Liqueur
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger

Muddle fresh ginger in a mixing glass. Add Cherry Heering Liqueur, lemon juice, simple syrup and ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Note: muddling simply means crushing, so use a muddling bar tool or simply back of a large wooden spoon to crush the fresh ginger pieces.

Coffee Sourz

  • 1 part Heering Coffee Liqueur
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 1 part simple syrup

Fill a shaker with ice. Add ingredients, shake well and serve in a rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon slice and a cherry.

2 Gourmet Temp Tee Appetizer Recipes for Passover From The Jewish Hostess

2 Gourmet Temp Tee Appetizer Recipes for Passover From The Jewish Hostess

2 Comments 04 March 2012

Temp Tee Cream Cheese,
The hot pink round Temp Tee cream cheese container brings back cozy childhood memories of pure  Passover comfort slathered on a crispy matzo break off  piece from the familiar cardboard Passover matzo box.
Temp Tee was almost always guaranteed not to break my matzo as it spread, which was a Passover feat almost equal to the parting of the red sea. (Well- not really, but I’m just trying to make a point!)
Temp Tee cream cheese on matzo was always a fun kid friendly way to wake up to breakfast on a lazy Passover morning, and now, four decades later, reality has plowed its way into my kitchen, and I’ve come to the conclusion  that those lazy days are over!
You can still plop that pink Temp Tee cream cheese tub on a new Passover glass dish right next to a box of matzo with the paper peeling over, and say “Make your own lunch, guys!” but  here as The Jewish Hostess its my job to inspire you to  break out of that matzah box!
 I am excited to bring you some new Temp Tee cream cheese recipe ideas that help usher good old Temp Tee Passover spreadable cream cheese right into the 21 century.
Every Jewish Hostess needs to have a couple of easy fancy entertaining tricks up her sleeve, so make sure to keep these in your secret folder.
These Passover appetizers are so appealing to serve as as part of a beautiful dairy buffet holiday lunch. The veggies that are added in add to the nutritional value of these little dairy bites. Be creative and use these recipes as a guide to creating your own Passover gourmet cream cheese treats  so that you don’t feel like you just escaped slavery in the kitchen!
Jewish hostess tip!
These creamy Passover edibles are  absolutely stunning on a simple white tray, or displayed atop these flexible food safe silicone leaves from the MOMA Museum Shop in NYC.

A Persian Passover Seder at The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica

No Comments 04 March 2012

Thank you  Djamilla Cochran of http://www.theroseweddings.com for sharing this elegant Persian seder from 2012 with Jewish Hostesses from so many different backgrounds. I am continually fascinated by the different Jewish cultures that span the globe.We all share the same Torah, yet throughout thousands of years of peace and persecution, history has allowed us all to survive, and express our individuality as separate Jewish communities. Beautiful! I have enjoyed posting this unique seder, as I hope you will all enjoy reading. Marlene

This beautiful Passover Seder was styled by Marjaneh from Candybar Couture with lots of help from her mother Guity. Although, Passover is a Jewish Holiday celebrated for thousands of years, this family who is originally from Iran, took a very modern approach to designing the party. The party was held at the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica. The second floor patio that was covered halfway by a beautiful white tent that was the ideal location to seat more than 70 guests. It is very common for Iranians living in Los Angeles to have a large number of guests at the Seder. They invite friends and lots of extended family. A microphone had to be used for all of the guests to hear the prayers!

The food that is used for the prayers, along with flowers were used as the centerpiece.

They included lettuce, bitter herbs, Matzos, vinegar and Halegh which is the Iranian version of Charoset. The highlight of the nigh is generally Dayenu where it is customary for Iranian Jews to playfully hit each other with the raw scallions. This tradition symbolizes the whips of the slaves in Egypt.”

1. Lily Pads and Frogs Passover Table Decor By Kineret Spector (check out more of  Kineret’s creative tables HERE and HERE!)

“This year we went for a fresh frog-inspired spring theme for our Passover table. Paper lotus flowers on lilly pads are fun place cards. Appetizer plates off center add to the floating lilly pad feel. Round woven place mats down the center of the table make a fun lilly pad kind of runner, with water lilly candle holders and candles adding a glowy ambiance. Finally, wire garden frogs add a little whimsy.
Thanks, Marlene!”
:) Kineret

2. A Country Seder Table by Lisa Ades-

“My country seder in Massachusets – nothin’ fancy since the green outside from our Japanese garden is all the decoration we need…”

“I wish I had chairs that match but at least we have glasses that match – they were Grandma Ades’s.”

“This is my “centerpiece” – my mom and I went to the nursery down the street where they have the most beautiful pansies…”

“We planted them in this pot that has real moss growing on it. What could be prettier than that?”

“Did you notice my “diamond” napkin fold? I found it on http://www.napkinfoldingguide.com/! Ethan made that kippah on the right when he was little – i love the pom pom on it and that all the letters fell off except for HA! Enjoy! Lisa”

“Hi Marlene!
Our gourmet popcorn business closed for pesach-so we finally had some free time on our hands! Like always-we suprise our mother with a beautiful table every holiday. This years inspiration was “hag ha’aviv-holiday of the spring. ” A trip to the flower market, & a local nursery-& we were done! We rented a camel table cloth,yellow napkins,& bamboo chairs from Brooklyn Party Rental -Sonny Halawani- Our centerpieces were grass we bought already in those rustic wood crates, glass jars filled with moss, real birch wood, birds, lemons & limes.. For place cards we potted moss in terra cotta pots, & used birch wood scraps (we got it free!) that we ripped in small pieces for the names. Next to that, we placed our home-made leather bound Hagadahs! Our favorite part of the whole table – everyones little shelf with all the symbolic foods. We found these lucite “cabinet organizers” for cents-& we turned them into individual ke’aras! It was soo easy & so much fun! Enjoy!!”
