Resep Kerang Kampak Tim Bawang Putih dan Jahe was the Indonesian translation for steamed sea scallop with garlic and ginger. This is really simple and easy to replicate at home.

Kerang Kampak or Axe Scallops with It’s Roe and Internal Organ

I’m using kerang kampak or kerang kapak (Atrina maura), commonly called as giant scallops. Kerang kampak literary translated as axe clams in English because it’s shells resemble of the shape of ancient old axe. This axe clams scallop also called callo de hacha Scallops in Mexico. The shape and the size of the kerang kampak scallops is similiar with kidney. This scallop is much more bigger than common scallop, the shell of kerang kampak could reach more than 30 cm and the size of the scallop (abductor muscle) could reach 10 cm. The medium size of kerang kapak scallop on the photograph cost me about 2.2 USD for each of it, pretty damn pricey but worth for every single cent.

I like to eat all of it, but don’t forget to get rid the blakish sack digestive organ that contain sand and debris unless your scallops roe became gritty.You can shuck the scallop and discard the  scallops roe, but you can use the scallops roe too because it was edible. Wash the scallop properly first because there is a tendency to have sand trapped in small places.

Making oven roasted garlic recipe is so easy to do. Simply cut the tips end of the garlic bulp to made it a lot easier to extract after roasted, toss the garlic with olive oil and season it with salt and black pepper evenly, then lay them with the bottom side down in the oven tray. Use a big enough baking tray, so the garlic are not too crowded. You want room between them for the moisture to escape, which concentrates the garlic flavor. Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending of the garlic bulb size) in 482ºF (250ºC), or until the garlic are completely softened and wilted, and start to wrinkle and some of the them charred. The garlic bulb may take longer to roast, depending on the size and the ammount of your garlic. The oven roasted garlic will keep for about three days in the refrigerator and about 6 days if you packed it with oil, i also can be frozen for up to six months.

Lobster Ceviche Recipe with Cherry Tomatoes and Kaffir Limes. Ceviche, also called cebiche, or seviche a  dish made of fresh diced raw seafood that pickled or cured in a citrus juices with addition of chopped chillies, onions and among other seasoning. Ceviche is popular appetizer in Central and South America region and considered as Peru national herrittage dish. Ceviche is mostly made of raw fish fillet like tuna, salmon, Chilean seabass or other white flesh fishes, but it’s can also be substitude with any kind of seafood like shrimp, squid, scallops and also lobster tail meat. I’m such a fanatic fans of lobster, i’ve made French Style Lobster Thermidor Recipe, Roasted Lobster with Brown Butter, Garlic, Ginger and Soy Sauce Glaze Recipe, Chinese Style Lobster with Sweet and Sour Chili Sauce Recipe, Japanese Style Lobster Miso Soup Recipe, French Style Butter Poached Lobster with Fennel & HerbsItalian Style Spicy Lobster Pasta with Cherry Tomato, Chilli and Garlic Greens, and  Balinese Style Grilled Lobster with Spicy Chilli Sauce Recipe; none of the list of lobster recipe using raw lobster meat, i guess this lobster ceviche is worth to try.

Lobster  ceviche  with cherry tomatoes recipe is pretty American style since i add some chillies, finely chopped onions and served it with corriander leaves. Instead of using cooked lobster like commonly lobster ceviche recipe on the internet, i just blanched my lobster on a boiling Homemade Bouquet Garni infused water. I’m not attemt to cooked the lobster, but i guess i had to do this since peeling lobster tail meat without prior blancing could be such  a big mess and not that easy to do, beside that, blanching could sterilized the lobster shells. To prevent the remaining blanching heat cooked the lobster meat, i dip the blanced lobster in a large ice bath to suddently lower the temperature and stop the cooking process, remember that warm uncooked meat is the best inviroment for bacteria to growth too.

Live Lobster Ceviche with Red, Green and Yello Cherry Tomatoes

Making lobster ceviche and any other uncooked raw seafood dish is sounds intimidating to almost amateur cook, not exception for myself. I guess it’s slightly challanging; but first, you should really know how to handle the raw lobster tail meat properly. The first and the key of the safe and also delicious lobster ceviche is the freshness of the lobster meat. I guess it’s preferred the live lobster rather than the frozen, but if you can access the live lobster at least choose the ‘sashimi grade’ which is usually vaccum packed frozen lobster tail meat in a gourmet store. Freshly cought lobster for making ceviche is quite bargaining, as long as you make sure it’s really fresh. Never even thought to use the died lobster in a traditional or even worst in a supermarket that probably laying there more than hours. Once you’ve got the lobster, you need to clean and wash all the equipments to making the lobster ceviche, including your hands. Keep all the ingredients in a cold temerature between 0° C to 4° C, which means refrigerate right after you cut the lobster meat. For savety reason, i didn’t recommend raw lobster ceviche for a pregnant woman because her fetus (unborn baby) are at risk if she eats raw or undercooked seafood, considering that raw seafoods are possibly and more likely contain parasites or bacteria than foods made from cooked seafood.

Live Spinny Lobster for Making Lobster Ceviche

I’m making my homemade lobster ceviche and cherry tomatoes with a relatively medium size spinny lobster weighed about 350 grams. I purchased the live spinny lobster from Iane Fish Market that located on Jl. Kebagusan dalam I no.42, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta. Iane fish market is a trusted live seafood distributor that provide many kinds of seafood, including many kinds of lobster, slipper lobster, coral trout, mouse grouper, mud grouper and many more. One thing for sure, they provide it with much more  bargain price tag rather than fancy seafood restaurant. For the cherry tomatoes, i use tri color cherry tomatoes; green, red and yellow cherry tomatoes that quite pleasant for eyes. I didn’t sure if it’s from different species but i guess the green ones is the raw state of either of the red nor the yellow cherry tomatoes.

Asam Jungga (Thin Skin Kaffir Limes from North Sumatra)

To made my lobster ceviche special even more, i’m using local kaffir limes called jeruk junggaor asam jungga, an endemic Varieties of kaffir limes that grown in North Sumatra and you know what, i’m feeling so damn lucky since my causin flow it away with her from our Bataknese descent land. For the record, asam jungga or jeruk jungga is pretty damn pricey in Jakarta, especially for the bataknese people since authentic Arsik or Naniura using it. Jeruk jungga or asam jungga could be worth about IDR 7.000-15.000 (70¢- 1.50¢ USD) for each of it. The distict different of jeruk jungga and common kaffir limes is the thickness of the skin; jeruk jungga got much more thinner than kaffir limes. The limes pulp within the ceviche is a great touch too, bursting sourness when you blast the pulp out while chewing the succulent lobster meat.

Succulent and Sweet Raw Lobster Tail Meat Ceviche

The authentic lobster ceviche made of raw lobster tail meat, but i guess the term raw is not fully truth since the meat protein is denaturated with the additional of acid liquid which is lime juice.  Lime juice is  actually citric acid could break the bridge or chain of protein amino acid in the lobster meat and turn it out into opaque, just like a process of denaturation by heat or cooking. Beside that crappy chemistry, citric acid or low Ph liquid could kill several kind of bacteria and parisites, not all but i guess it’s fine because many people didn’t get died of it anyway. Traditionaly, lobster ceviche was marinated for about three to five hours, but i gess some restaurant just made it after the order comes. Lobster ceviche usually served with Homemade Crispy Tortilla  Chips or Homemade Toasted Bruchetta.

Eversince i’ve cured my duck breast and venison loin and made myself Homemade Duck Prosciutto (Air Dry-Cured Duck Breast), and Homemade Bresaola di Cervo (Air Dry-Cured Venison Tenderloin), i’m obsessed with making homemade cured meat or charcuterie. Homemade version of gravlax is away cheaper than the gourmet deli store price tag. Making salmon gravlax is actualy effordless since you let the time doing it’s ‘drying’ by osmosis process. Beside, you can control all ingredients and adjust the taste according to your own personal licking. For example, i add szechuan peppercorn to my salmon gravlax to satisfied my asian descent taste buds and you won’t get that anywhere in the store. A splash or liquor on the salmon filet will made your homemade salmon gravlax lovely even more, i recommended citrusy liquor like citrus vodca or cointreau.

Juniper Berries

Making homemade salmon gravlax is quite easy, even for an amateur like me. The salmon is “buried” in a dry mixture marinade of salt, sugar, juniper berries, szechuan peppercorn and dill weed. The salmon cured for a few days in the curing mixture. As you can see, the dry curing mixture later be liquidfied because the moisture content on the salmon dripping out and the curing mixture penetrated the salmon meat. No rocket science here, but the osmosis happen when high consentration seperated from the lower consentration by tissues or membrant,  which is the salmon fish flesh, the higher consentration will be dripped into the lower consentration until they got equally consentration. Salmon gravlax is done within the curing process without following smoking like my Homemade Tea Smoked Salmon Recipe. You can use any herb you like and/or add a wide variety of crushed spices to your cure, different kind of peppercorns, star anise, caraway or fennel seeds, but my favourite spice  for homemade salmon gravlax or any kind of my homemade charcuterie is szechuan peppercorn and also juniper berries.

Easy Homemade Salmon Gravlax Recipe

Preparing the homemade salmon gravlax seems so easy and quicky, but curing takes several days so plan ahead before you serving it at your party. Salt and sugar bring somekind of pleasant umami and  balanced flavour. If you made your gravlax made without sugar, it can easily become too dry and rubberry, and for sure it’s taste terribly salty. The ratio of salt and sugar used in gravlax recipes varies widely, due more to personal preference than food safety. As this recipe proves, large amounts of salt and sugar aren’t really necessary. Experiment and find your own favorite ratio of the two, keeping in mind that not enough salt will result in mushy, under-cured fish and too much (without any sugar to balance it out) will make the fish tough and super-salty.  Wll cured homemade gravlax should have a fresh but bold salmon flavor with some tingling spicy flavour of herbs and peppercorns. The texture will be slightly firmer than raw salmon, but should never be tough or chewy.
