Innovative Newcomers: From Gooey, Gluten-Free Pizza and Passover “Pringles” to Cold Brew Earl Grey Macaroons

When it comes to Passover, most rituals will never change – but that doesn’t mean your meals have to be the same ol’-same ol’. Passover starts at sundown on Wednesday, April 8, 2020. That gives you just a few weeks to figure out how to take a tradition that’s been around for thousands of years and make it feel fresh.

KAYCO (www.kayco.com) and Manischewitz, two of the most trusted names in kosher food, are here to help. So is Kosher.com (www.Kosher.com), the premier website for all things kosher. These institutions keep a sharp eye on consumer trends in order to develop and launch exciting new products and recipes every year. That’s why, in today’s health-minded climate, the focus is on better-for-you options that inspire satisfying meals while also promoting physical well being.

Innovative rollouts from KAYCO/Manischewitz

Skeptics take heart: gone are the days when Passover “substitutes” can leave a bad taste in your mouth. You’d never know that Manischewitz’s GlutenFree Sicilian-style Pizza and Absolutely GlutenFree Stacked Potato Chips (available in 3 flavors) are kosher for Passover, let alone glutenfree! Then there’s dairy-free Gefen Almond Milk, perfect with glutenfree Gefen Granola; “clean” non-GMO snacks like Beet Chips and Carrot Chips; and vegan 5-ingredient Freedom Bars for wholesome snacking.

You can even enjoy a sandwich during Passover this year thanks to rolls from No Way! It’s Gluten Free. The Tuscanini brand is introducing 4 varieties of all-natural sparkling seltzers with zero calories, bottled at the source and imported from Italy. And Heaven & Earth’s unique new veggie juice blends come in single-serve packs for nutritious refreshment on the go.

Admittedly, not all food trends are quite so virtuous. Go ahead and indulge in new finds like Manischewitz Cold Brew Macaroons in two varieties, Coffee and Earl Grey (whaaaat?!), made from real tea and coffee.

Of course, some classics are perfect the way they are. This year Manischewitz reboots the packaging for everyone’s favorite Horseradish, now in adorable mason jars you can put straight on the Seder table. They are also introducing Handmade Shmura Matzo with a light, delicate texture – perfect for the traditional Seder.

Also cooking is also healthier and safer than getting your foods from other places. Here are some good fish recipes from Sitka Salmon Shares. Eating your fishes up, be stronger and healthier.

Poached Salmon with Savory Cherry Salad

By Chef Sher Castellano

Poaching is an incredible easy and practically foolproof way to prepare salmon. The poaching liquid can be as simple as water and sea salt and adds infused gentle flavor while keeping the fish moist and cooked perfectly. The poached salmon is placed on a bed of thick Greek yogurt and topped with a tangy, sweet and savory cherry salad of Northwest cherries, fresh parsley, green onion, lots of extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper.

Add the cherries, green onions, parsley, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl and stir until well-combined.

Basque Cod with Potatoes, Peppers & Olives

By Captain Marsh Skeele & Dara Chapman

Basque cuisine is a wonderfully bold style, the bright and dramatic flavors that come out in this dish will be the highlight of any dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pacific cod fillets
  • 1½ lb fingerling potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 red, yellow, or orange bell peppers, sliced ½ inch thick

Drain and then toss potatoes in 3 tbsp olive oil. Transfer potatoes to a baking dish and roast until tender, about 20-25 minutes.

While potatoes are roasting, sauté peppers and onions over medium high heat in 2 tbsp olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add sliced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add pepper & onion mixture and niçoise olives to roasting potatoes, and toss with salt, pepper, and ¾ tsp paprika. Roast for 10 minutes until veggies begin to caramelize.

Ancho Chili Encrusted Salmon Lettuce Tacos

The annual member recipe contest is an exciting occasion here at Sitka Salmon Shares. It gives the loyal members a chance to let their culinary talents shine while sharing their own recipes with the community of seafood lovers and conscious consumers. Sitka Salmon Shares reward the member that provides the very best entry with a trip to Sitka, Alaska. Enjoy this recipe from member Rebeca Itzkowich, and as always, stay wild.

Ingredients

For the salmon:

  • 1½ lb sockeye salmon
  • 3 ancho chili peppers, without seeds and veins
  • ½ cup of raw peanuts
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ¼ of large yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh orange juice
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • ½ cube of vegetable bouillon
  • 2 cedar planks

For serving:

  • 12 large iceberg lettuce leaves for the tacos
  • ½ small pineapple, cut into very small squares
  • ½ large red onion, minced
  • green scallions, minced
  • cilantro leaves, minced

Directions

  • PREPARE CEDAR PLANKS

Soak the cedar planks in water at least two hours before grilling.

  • MAKE RUB

In cast iron frying pan, brown the onion, chili peppers, peanuts and sesame seeds over a slow flame stirring constantly. Peppers will become soft and pliable and the ingredients will release a wonderful aroma. Make sure they do not burn.

Place the browned ingredients in a food processor with the olive oil, orange and lemon juices, bouillon, salt and pepper. Make sure everything is well incorporated.

  • COOK SALMON

Heat the grill to medium. Charcoal or gas will work well. Place the salmon filet skin side down single layer on the cedar plank and rub the mixture all over the salmon to seal it.

Grill for 12 to 15 minutes. Start checking the salmon for doneness after about 12 minutes. The salmon is done when it is uniformly pink in the center.

  • PLATE & SERVE

When the salmon is done assemble the tacos: on the iceberg lettuce leaves put some of the salmon and then sprinkle a bit of pineapple, cilantro, red onion, chives.

You can become a member of Sitka Salmon Shares and let them to deliver fresh caught fishes delivering to your door! Sitka Salmon Shares is now a completely integrated boat-to-doorstep seafood company. They have a lovable group of fishermen-owners who deliver their fish. They have a small processing plant in Sitka, Alaska, where they custom-process their catch with a laser focus on quality and traceability. And they have two Good-Fish Hubs in the Midwest, which allow them to deliver fishermen’s catch directly to your doorstep (or to your local farmers market or restaurant). 

By the way, if you think these online recipes are too difficult for you, you might get some inspirations by Lulu’s cooking, which is super easy with no effort. Because the fish itself is good enough, why do we need to put too much efforts?

Just grilling the fish with coconut oil or avocado oil in a nonstick pan. I will put some soy sauce and five spice seasoning if it’s a cod or halibut. If it is a salmon, I will put nothing when I am cooking, only add some lime juice or blacken seasoning to serve. Super simple recipes, but it works! But you can always try some Sitka Salmon Shares’ challenging recipes if you are good at cooking.
