Smoked Cuttlefish & Smoked STRAWBERRIES!!!!!!!!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Happy Saturday and post Valentine's delightfulness to all!


I hope that Cupid was good to you yesterday, and I took the leftover strawberries from my shopping yesterday, (first batch used in my "Barramundi & Steak" Surf/Turf post yesterday in the fish section), and smoked the fruit again today and with smoked cuttlefish!


It was even better!


I've decided not to mess around on the grill with the remaining steak, as it cooked too much. Instead I'm doing Steak Tartare with that on Monday, but here's getting to TODAY!!!




Cheers! - Leah




I put the cuttlefish and strawberries into a grapeseed oil "wiped" perforated grill pan, and put that on my smoker, with hickory chips and high heat for 20 minutes...



The smell was hypnotic! (AMAZING and more than I expected). And this went over a raw spinach salad with chopped raw elephant garlic...



And a super simple dressing of olive oil and apple cider vinegar...



And then red Hawaiian sea salt and black pepper and more olive oil over the whole plate as a finish....




I drank all of my Rosé yesterday and so this meal is paired with a Greek dry white...(but really SHOULD be with a dry 

Rosé, to b paired properly due to the smoked strawberries which beg for that) and so for company, I would have that instead, but for today, that worked...




Exotic albeit simple, healthful and minimalistically arranged (my criteria for all that I eat) I loved this MORE than yesterday's SURF/TURF doings, but then again I do "have this thing for tentacles," and also can't stand when steak is overcooked.




In any event, this was a great use of the big strawberry package I bought. And it was fantastic!


For the mere aroma even, how grateful am I!


Cheers to all!!!!!!!! - Leah

Really nice Leah, never thought of strawberries before. Did they add an aromatic or more from the juices to the cuttlefish?  The spinach I would think would become like a strawberry vinaigrette had be added only maybe sweeter? Excellent idea, and of course as always a flawless presentation.

Thank you Dirtsailor!!!!


And Justin too!


And Foamheart, yes, the strawberries were wonderful! I rant and rave more about those in yesterday's "Barramundi & Steak" thread on the fish section, and where I also mentioned YOU, regarding your neighbor who grilled frozen steak etc. (If memory serves me well)?


Feel free to go in there and correct me if I am wrong!


This was really great!


Cheers to all!!!!!!!!! And thank you so much!!!!!!! - Leah

Hah! (Foamheart you got it right, yesterday we had a heatwave and it was about 32 outside indeed)!


As for all my smoking, it's fairly high heat and thus done quickly. (Approx: 350-380-400 for everything I do). I don't "cold smoke" therefore, but do enjoying smoking in the cold!? Smiles.


Happy Sensational Sunday to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cheers!!!!!!! - Leah
