Mini butterflies with shell core

Mini butterflies with shell core

For starters I boiled water with a little salt and oil. After the water boiled, I added the pasta, which I left to boil for a maximum of 8 minutes per hour.

Separately I cleaned the onion and then washed it, then cut it into small pieces. I put the garlic and peeled it on the small grater, after which, together with the onion, I hardened them in oil, but very little. Then I added the core of the shells, which I let them thaw at room temperature, after which I rinsed them well (they looked too dubious .... they were of course with good validity).

I then added the wine and at the end I added salt and pepper to taste. I let them simmer until it dropped.

The ready-cooked pasta, I drained it and then I rinsed it a little with cold water so that it doesn't stick to each other, after which I added the core of ready-cooked shells in the wine stew.

Honestly, my husband ate them right away.

I hope you enjoy. GOOD APPETITE!

Shell salad with rice

Shells are tasty, but also very healthy, both fresh and frozen.

Tips on how to use and choose fresh shells:

  • Only those with a closed shell should be bought
  • They will be bought only from specialty stores with seafood
  • Before use, they should be washed under cold running water, cleaned with a hard kitchen brush.
  • Like all seafood, shells should not be cooked for more than 10 minutes, as they lose their flavor.
  • Fresh shells can be eaten raw with all kinds of sauces

When we use frozen shells, they will be left to thaw in the evening in the refrigerator, then washed under a stream of cold water, cleaned of impurities with a kitchen brush and then used.

Frozen shells will not be eaten raw.

We will make a salad recipe with shells and rice, perfect for a quick dinner.

Beetle, watermelon and watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris Schrad.)

watermelon is a kind of watermelon good to eat & # 8221, begins its description Simion Florea Marian, in his bus Romanian folk botany. We learn about the beetle that it can only grow if it is grown in a favorable climate, ie in the scorching heat of the plain. He doesn't like them in the mountains, not even at his feet.

The harbuz is of two kinds, says S.Fl. Marian: male and female. The male is described as round, with a green or even black shell and a red core. It bears various names, depending on the geographical area: in Bucovina it is called Melon in Moldova: boşar and Melon in Muntenia, melongreen His name is Oltenia watermelon In Transylvania, we have three names: swan, watermelon and watermelon the people of Banat also call it everything watermelon.

The female beetle is usually longer, notes Simion Florea Marian, has a much lighter skin, even whitish, and a red or yellow core. It is called, both in Moldova and in Bukovina, harbuzoaică.

We learn from the description of the beetle that it was used not only for food, but also for medicine. When someone was suffering from rast (ie an inflammation of the spleen), the beetle was baked, the juice was drained and the patient's hot core was given to drink, it was applied as a compress on the abdomen. Another method was to put the baked beets and bran in one patch (cloth), with which the sufferer was tied where his abdomen was swollen.

Harbuz seeds were also useful because they made the famous folk medicine called milk of all seeds. Here's how to cure it: Grind together two tablespoons of beetroot, cucumber and juice (melon), white melon, yellow melon and sunflower. Drain hot water over it, mix it, strain it through a thick cloth, then give it to those in convalescence to drink.

The red and sweet core of the harbuz inspired the boys from Transylvania and Oltenia to use this fruit in the songs dedicated to their girlfriends:

scallops they will be washed under a stream of cold water, in order to remove the existing sand, then they will be boiled over low heat in a pot with water and covered with a lid, for approx. 10-15 minutes (until they open, and those where the shell has not opened, will be thrown away or can be boiled).

Garlic head, it will be cleaned, then they will be put garlic cloves in the blender together with fresh parsley, butter (at room temperature), salt and pepper, mixing for about 1 minute (until a sauce is formed).

sauce obtained, it will be transferred to a bowl, over which it will be placed grated parmesan, mixing with a whisk (until well incorporated into the sauce).

scallops boiled and opened, they will be drained in a strainer, then placed in a large stove tray, over which a spoonful of sauce will be placed.

Tray put in the preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 3 minutes, then served hot with lemon slices or pasta.

Even if it sounds pretentious, the Saint-Jaques shellfish recipe with chilli and garlic is easy to prepare in any kitchen.

16 shells of Saint-Jaques in shell,

175g salted butter,
