Vietnamese Turmeric Fish with Herbs & Mango Sauce-New Sirtfood Recipes

Prep time: 15 mins Cook time 30 mins Total 45 minutes       Serves 4new sirtfood receipes

Ingredients
Fish:
* 1 ¼ lbs fresh cod fish, boneless and skinless, cut into 2-inch piece wide that are about ½ inch thick
* 2 tbsp coconut oil to pan-fry the fish (plus a few more tablespoon if necessary)
* Small pinch of sea salt to taste
Fish marinade: (Marinate for at least 1 hr. or as long as overnight)
* 1 tbsp turmeric powder
* 1 tsp sea salt
* 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine (Alt. dry sherry)
* 2 tsp minced ginger
* 2 tbsp olive oil
Infused Scallion and Dill Oil:
* 2 cups scallions (slice into long thin shape)
* 2 cups of fresh dill
* Pinch of sea salt to taste.
Mango dipping sauce:
* 1 medium sized ripe mango
* 2 tbsp rice vinegar
* Juice of ½ lime
1 garlic clove
1 tsp dry red chili pepper (stir in before serving)
Toppings:
* Fresh cilantro (as much as you like)
* Lime juice (as much as you like)
* Nuts (cashew or pine nuts)

Instructions
Steps:
1. Marinate the fish for at least 1 hr. or as long as overnight.
2. Place all ingredients under “Mango Dipping Sauce” into a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
To Pan-Fry The Fish:
1.Heat 2 tbsp of coconut oil in a non-stick large frying pan over high heat. When hot, add the pre-marinated fish. *Note: place the fish slices into the pan individually and separate to two or more batches to pan fry if necessary.
2.You should hear a loud sizzle, after which you can decrease the heat to medium-high.
3. Do not turn or move the fish until you see a golden brown color on the side, about 5 minutes. Season with a pinch of sea salt. Add more coconut oil to pan-fry the fish if necessary.
4. Once the fish is in golden brown color carefully turn the fish to fry on the other side. Once it’s done, transfer to a large plate. *Note: There should be some oil left in the frying pan. We use the remainder of the oil to make scallion and dill infused oil.
To Make The Scallion And Dill Infused Oil:
1. Use the remainder of the oil in the frying pan over medium-high heat, add 2 cups of scallions and 2 cups of dill. Turn off the heat once you have added the scallions and dill. Give them a gentle toss just until the scallions and dill have wilted, about 15 seconds. Season with a dash of sea salt.
2. Pour the scallion, dill, and infused oil over the fish and serve with mango dipping sauce with fresh cilantro, lime, and nuts.

 Chargrilled Beef With A Red Wine Jus, Onion Rings, Garlic, Kale And Herb Roasted Potatoes-New Sirtfood Recipes                                                             new sirtfood recipes

INGREDIENTS:
100g potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm dice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
5g parsley, finely chopped
50g red onion, sliced into rings
50g kale, sliced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
120–150g x 3.5cm-thick beef fillet steak or 2cm-thick sirloin steak
40ml red wine
150ml beef stock
1 tsp tomato purée
1 tsp cornflour, dissolved in 1 tbsp water

INSTRUCTIONS:
Heat the oven to 220ºC/gas 7.
Place the potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water, bring back to the boil and cook for 4–5 minutes, then drain. Place in a roasting tin with 1 teaspoon of the oil and roast in the hot oven for 35–45 minutes. Turn the potatoes every 10 minutes to ensure even cooking. When cooked, remove from the oven, sprinkle with the chopped parsley and mix well.

Fry the onion in 1 teaspoon of the oil over a medium heat for 5–7 minutes, until soft and nicely caramelised. Keep warm. Steam the kale for 2–3 minutes then drain. Fry the garlic gently in ½ teaspoon of oil for 1 minute, until soft but not coloured. Add the kale and fry for a further 1–2 minutes, until tender. Keep warm.

Heat an ovenproof frying pan over a high heat until smoking. Coat the meat in ½ a teaspoon of the oil and fry in the hot pan over a medium–high heat according to how you like your meat done.If you like your meat medium it would be better to sear the meat and then transfer the pan to an oven set at 220ºC/gas 7 and finish the cooking that way for the prescribed times.

Remove the meat from the pan and set aside to rest. Add the wine to the hot pan to bring up any meat residue. Bubble to reduce the wine by half, until syrupy and with a concentrated flavor.

Add the stock and tomato purée to the steak pan and bring to the boil, then add the cornflour paste to thicken your sauce, adding it a little at a time until you have your desired consistency. Stir in any of the juices from the rested steak and serve with the roasted potatoes, kale, onion rings and red wine sauce.

Buckwheat Pancakes With Strawberries, Dark Chocolate Sauce And Crushed Walnuts-New Sirtfood Recipes

Makes around 6 to 8 pancakes, depending on the size.                                    recipes sirtfood
For the pancakes you will need:
350ml milk
150g buckwheat flour
1 large egg
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, for cooking
For the chocolate sauce
100g dark chocolate (85 percent cocoa solids)
85ml milk
1 tbsp double cream
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

To serve
400g strawberries, hulled and chopped
100g walnuts, chopped
To make the pancake batter, place all of the ingredients apart from the olive oil in a blender and blend until you have a smooth batter. It should not be too thick or too runny. (You can store any excess batter in an airtight container for up to 5 days in your fridge. Be sure to mix well before using again.)
To make the chocolate sauce, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, mix in the milk, whisking thoroughly and then add the double cream and olive oil. You can keep the sauce warm by leaving the water in the pan simmering on a very low heat until your pancakes are ready.
To make the pancakes heat a heavy-bottomed frying pan until it starts to smoke, then add the olive oil.
Pour some of the batter into the centre of the pan, then tip the excess batter around it until you have covered the whole surface, you may have to add a little more batter to achieve this. You will only need to cook the pancake for 1 minute or so on each side if your pan is hot enough.
Once you can see it going brown around the edges use a spatula to loosen the pancake around its edge, then flip it over. Try to flip in one action to avoid breaking it.
Cook for a further minute or so on the other side and transfer to a plate.
Place some strawberries in the centre and roll up the pancake. Continue until you have made as many pancakes as required.
Spoon over a generous amount of sauce and sprinkle over some chopped walnuts.
You may find that your first efforts are too fat or fall apart but once you find the consistency of your batter that works best for you and you get your technique perfected you’ll be making them like a professional. Practice makes perfect in this case.
