lemon/dill/cauliflower sauce

    this one borders on a soup but can easily go into the sauce world. Its my girlfriends
    invention; Marisol, so she gets the credit - the sauce muse is speaking



    a cup of steamed cauliflower
    lots of lemon juice, fresh with some zest peal - like a lot of lemon
    sea salt
    lots of dill
    diced ginger simmered in a pan of butter with tumeric and black pepper
    till things are soft; really soft and you can smell.

    When the flavors come together in this one it's like a music; like a stringed section on the Clifford
    Brown L.P. - i really love to go overboard with the herbs though

    *i like the dance with the dill on the fish but you can sub for rosemary or really any herb
    as the cauliflower is a great vehicle for various flavors

    * you can easily take out the dill and add curry paste and serve on chicken; jus sayin

    We really need some simpler ways of doing stuff on the road. Last night we tried something we had heard on the radio.

    Place salmon fillets in a bowl and fill with boiling water, cover with saran wrap and leave for ten minutes. It was beautiful. next time I will put some aromatics in the bowl with the salmon. This time I put some coriander stocks in with the salmon.

    Then I made a slurry of coriander and basil and coconut aminos and MCT oil and also a tiny bit of honey.

    Somehow I have to learn how to live without my magic bullet on the road!

    ole Caroline - that's a wild job at catering - say here is the new sauce

    GREEN chili, oyster, coconut sauce (meant for squash)

    - saute ginger and green chili's
    add coconut milk
    salt pepper
    add shitake mushrooms

    add oysters at end so not to cook that long

    its best if you add a ton of green chilis and for some reason this dish works or
    my taste buds are just real loose I don't know

    I got some bone broth recipes coming down the pipe also a new array of vegan dishes with andouille sausage and
    bison and salmon cuts - gotta keep the vegans on their toes; hell maybe even eat a couple of their toes and let
    them know planet earth wasn't always a goji berry wonderland of whole foods outlets everywhere. I got accosted at
    our local health food store today for eating bacon by one of those older hippies with an afro of grey hair. Only a vegan
    would come up to you and say something as your loading your plate; I mean the nerve. Maybe Jack's new sauce book
    could have a chapter on 'how to deal with vegans' maybe even a schematic of the neuro chemicals that are misfiring and
    the lack of DHA. We can't blame em; it's probably dry as bone upstairs - why else would anyone turn in their Mongolian leather
    wallet for a Velcro wallet; I know people who have done that. Sorry Caroline, that turned into a minor rant; but seriously
    I think there is a sizable market for offending vegans with a cookbook; let's work on this.

    In a cooking class I took, a chef used the same trick for asparagus. Dump boiling water into a bowl filled with asparagus. Asparagus will never over cook that way.

    WOW Great Coldsnow,
    I have been trying to eat more cauliflower and was just reading up about Dill because I ate half of small package and then started craving it.
    Found this 'Dill' article, packed full of helpful info, Why Dill Juice? For Immunity and Better Sleep, Try These Dill Juice Recipes

    Still looking for more info specifically Dill's Oxalate content because I keep oxalate low. Devil is in the details.

    I think spices and herbs are important and going to take JK advice (as I know it) to eat them fresh and use one's grown under my local light.

    Thank you again for sharing the recipe and the source.
