salmonIngredients:
1 to 1 1/2 pounds salmon filet with skin on (sockeye salmon is great if still in season)
1/4 C SOOC Blood Orange Olive Oil
1/4 C SOOC Tangerine Balsamic Vinegar
4 garlic cloves (minced)
2 Tablespoons fresh herbs chopped (chives, cilantro and parsley or whatever your herb garden is plentiful of)
Dash red pepper flakes (depending on the level of spice you want)
Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions:
Marinate your salmon filet with the Blood orange olive oil and the tangerine balsamic for up to two hour or if time doesn’t allow then baste your filet before grilling…..marinating adds more flavor. Sprinkle filet with mixture of remaining ingredients.
Preheat your grill to approximately 400 to 450 degrees or on high.
Place salmon steaks skin side down on grill for 3-5 minutes or until skin gets dark and crispy. Then place the filet on a piece of aluminum foil for remainder of cooking time for 6-8 minutes (depending on thickness of the filet). Press on the thickest part of the filet with a fork and it should still feel somewhat soft and squishy with creamy fluids releasing. Do not overcook the filet…..salmon is a fatty fish and will still be very moist but fully cooked.
I always drizzle a little more tangerine balsamic over the filet on the plate as we’ll for added flavor. Enjoy!

trufflesIngredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Steaming hot heavy cream
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 8 ounces best quality dark chocolate in chip form, or chopped
  • 3 tablespoons SOOC dark or white balsamic – my favorite options for this are: coconut, raspberry, tangerine, strawberry, espresso, or traditional 18 year.
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder for rolling the truffles or use 6 oz. tempered (melted chocolate) for coating the truffles.

Directions:

  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a medium size heat proof bowl.
  2. Heat the cream and salt in a heavy bottom sauce pan over low heat until it just begins to steam.  Do not allow it to simmer or boil.
  3. Pour the cream over the chopped chocolate and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes without stirring.  Stir the mixture gently until all the chocolate is melted.  Add the balsamic and stir well.  Cool to room temperature and then place the bowl in the refrigerator, covered until the ganache has become cold and can be scooped and formed into balls.
  4. Have a baking sheet covered with parchment paper ready that will fit into your fridge or freezer.
  5. Take 1 teaspoon of cold balsamic ganache and quickly roll between your hands to form a ball.  If you spend too much time trying to get the shape just right, you’ll begin to melt the ganache and it will be a mess.
  6. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet and then place in the fridge or freezer to firm up the truffles.
  7. Once truffles are firm, you can roll into cocoa powder or in tempered (melted) chocolate.  Best stored in single layers, separated by parchment or wax paper in a sealed container in the refrigerator.  Truffles can be served at room temperature.

Makes approximately 30-40 truffles

Ingredientsoriginal_steamed_shrimp_with_wilted_swiss_chard_and_fresh_oranges_0211

3 medium to large navel oranges
6 tablespoons Milanese Gremolata Olive oil
3 tablespoons Tangerine Vinegar
1 1/2 pounds baby Swiss chard
Freshly ground black pepper and Salt
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: a pasta pot with a deep perforated colander-steamer insert or a metal steamer

1. Using a sharp paring knife, cut peel and white pith from 2 oranges, then cut each section of fruit away from membranes, cutting as close to membranes as you can, and place sections in a bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into bowl; discard membranes.

2. Squeeze juice from remaining orange (you should have about 1/3 cup). In a large bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup juice, 3 tablespoons oil, 3 tablespoons Tangerine Vinegar; set aside dressing.

3. Roughly chop the Swiss Chard, (if you can’t find any baby Swiss Chard just cut the stems off of the large leaves, rough chop the leaves and use in place of the baby Swiss Chard. If you want you can also add the stems to you dish when sauteing the leaves.)

4. In a large nonstick skillet with lid, heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add chard leaves and season with salt and pepper; continue to cook, covered, stirring occasionally until leaves are wilted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.

5. Fit a steamer rack inside a pot. Add enough water to reach within 1/2 inch of bottom of rack. Bring to a simmer. Put shrimp in steamer and steam until translucent and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.

6. Arrange chard on a large serving platter. Top with shrimp and orange sections. Whisk together dressing, then drizzle over dish. Season with salt and pepper to taste!

Clementine-Cranberry Pan Sauce
Makes about 6 servings

Four fresh clementines or small, plump tangerines, divided into segments
Defatted pan drippings in the pan in which pork tenderloin or chicken has been roasted (see note)
About ⅓ cup to ½ cup chicken broth
14- to 15-ounce can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/8 cup Tangerine balsamic vinegar
2 to 3 teaspoons honey (preferably orange blossom)
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger (optional)

Notes: If you prefer to omit the pan drippings, substitute with a 1/4 cup Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Directions

Using the tip of a sharp knife, remove any seeds or pits from the clementines or tangerines; segment the fruit and set aside.

Place the pan containing defatted drippings over one or two burners on the stovetop. Add the broth and, working over medium heat, gently stir and scrape drippings to loosen any crispy bits stuck on the pan. (Or add the EVOO to a pan and bring to a simmer.) Stir in the cranberry sauce, heating just until the sauce begins to bubble. Stir in the citrus segments, balsamic vinegar and honey to taste, and cook until the fruit is heated through and takes on a translucent appearance. Remove from heat. Stir in the crystallized ginger, if desired.

Transfer mixture to a warm sauce boat. Serve over slices of roasted pork, chicken or other fowl. If prepared using butter or vegetable oil (without pan drippings), you can spoon the sauce over plain cake, ice cream or custard.

Ingredients

1 to 2 small – to medium sized fennel bulbs, sliced

1 good-sized yellow onion, sliced

4 tablespoons  SOOC Blood Orange Olive Oil

1/2 cup orange juice

3/4 cup SOOC Tangerine balsamic vinegar

1 1/4 – 1 1/2 pounds arctic char fillets, cut into 4 to 6 pieces, depending on your appetite.

Citrus-pepper seasoning, or seasoning of your choice for fish or salt and pepper.

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Trim and cut fish. Sprinkle flesh side with seasoning or a little salt and pepper, set aside. Add the olive oil to a saute pan. Once hot add onions and fennel to pan and sauté over medium-high heat until light brown. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add the juice and vinegar, bring to light simmer and cook liquids down, reducing by at least one-half. Set aside and save some for garnish.

Heat another saute pan with two tablespoons of oil on medium-high heat. Once hot add the fish skin side down, and cook for 4 minutes. Flip fish in pan to flesh side down, and place pan in your preheated oven to cook for another 4 to 6 minutes to finish cooking.

While fish is finishing in the oven, add the vegetables back to the first saute pan with the orange juice-vinegar reduction, toss with remaining syrup to coat till vegetables are hot. When fish is done, plate some of the vegetables and slide a piece of fish on top, drizzle plate and, or fillet with the reserved syrup and serve.
