Homemade Lobster Ceviche with Tricolor Cherry Tomatoes, Kaffir Limes Juice and Pulp and Cilantro Leaves

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.

Jeruk Jungga Asam Jungga Jeruk Batak

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.

juniper berry recipe

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.

Recipe Grilled Wagyu Beef Steak with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Grilled Wagyu Beef Steak with Roasted Pepper Sauce is the second recipe that i’ve made beside my Slow Roasted Lamb Leg Steak with Barbecue Sauce once i meet up with my fellow foodblogger Tintin Samsyudin from Tinsyam.  She purchased  Tokusen Wagyu Steak for us from Hypermart Supermarket on Pejaten Village Mall. This tokusen wagyu topside got 4-5 marbling point. Tokusen Wagyu Beef is produced from imported Australian bred Wagyu cattle. Tokusen Wagyu Beef is the first Wagyu beef product that is produced and processed from an Indonesian feedlot and abattoir. Wagyu beef is commonly intensely marbled with softer fat, has higher percentages of monounsaturated fats, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and is lower in cholesterol than commodity beef. The combinations of these fats deliver a distinctive rich and tender flavor compared to other beef.

Tokusen Wagyu Topside

Wagyu beef  topside steak is quite lean, i mean the marble point is 4-5 out of 12.  Wagyu beef steak is considered as a second grade beef cut instead of premium cut like tenderloin, sirloin or ribeye cut. Wagyu topside steak must be cooked medium done or below if you want it quite tender because it’s lack of distributed softer fat or marbled fat within the flesh. That’s why wagyu topside is usually cooked whole or in a very large chuck with slow oven roast technique until reached 60–65 °C or medium done in the middle or in the thickest part of the wagyu topside.

Medium well done Wagyu topside steak is surprisingly quite tender, actually this is out of my expectation. Even it’s not melted like my wagyu tenderloin with 8-9 marble point for my Wagyu Tenderloin Filet Mignon with Truffle Mashed Potato and Reduced Red Wine Demi Glace Sauce, but i didn’t found any difficulties for slice it and chew it. I even cook the other piece of wagyu topside until well done as it’s requested, the flesh is chewable but the texture slighly dry for my licking.

Medium Well Done Wagyu Topside Steak with Roasted Pepper Sauce

Roasted pepper sauce for the grilled wagyu beef  made some kicking to the dish. For a presentation purpose, i made the roasted pepper sauce separatedly from red and also green bellpepper.  I love the charred and caramelized roasted pepper all the way, i like to using it for making Roasted Pepper Pesto Sauce with addition of my Homemade Sun Dried Tomato. Beside the roasted pepper sauce, i add some pickled fresh green peppercorn to give some bursting sensation when we chew on it. I also serving the wagyu steak with Mashed Sweet Potato that i mixed with steamed russet potato, but this time my mashed sweet potato contain no cream on it. We also had 2007 Rosemount Grenache Shiraz red wine, slighly tangy and sourish hint but it’s still a nice accompany.

Homemade Salmon Nugget

Homemade salmon nugget is an easy and healty snack. Homemade salmon nugget is much more cheaper than the store brought that loads with many preservatives, food coloring and also tons of mono sodium glutamat (MSG). Frozen salmon nugget with ‘no preservatives & additives’ label usually tagged pretty pricey, while the cheaper ones must be fulled of filler, either flour or another chemical agents. The cheapy store brought frozen salmon nugget is actually packed with lots of calories with only a little nutritional value, this provoked early age obesity.  Eversince almost toddler love nuggets all the way, my sister asked me to made nuggets for my twins niece and nephew  once i visiting her house in Jakarta. The frozen nuggets a quicky snack and also main dish that she could prepare before going to work. My sister said that my niece is pretty sick of chicken nugget, then i thought that i’m going to make salmon nuggets once i checked the freezer and found three pieces of salmon fillet.

Homemade Salmon Nugget, Soft and Bounchy Inside with Crispy Crusted Outside

Making salmon nugget recipe is actually easy, but quite an effort to following. There are several steps; making the nugget, breaded  and then deep frying. When you making salmon nugget as a finger food or apptizer at your party, trust me that all the efforts will be paid off once the juicy and meaty salmon nugget will be swifted as fast as snapping your finger. That’s why i used to made salmon nugget in a large quantity and freeze it in a portioning vaccum plastic bag. I used to baked or deep fry it in the morning  as a breakfast supper before going to my clinic.

Crispy and Crunchy Homemade Salmon Nugget

There are several method making salmon nugget, the simplest method is breaded chuncky salmon fillet just like salmon tempura, but i didn’t like it because the i can’t spiced the salmon goodly, beside my niece and nephew did’t like the flaky salmon meat texture.  They love the salmon nugget texture like a meatball, soft but bounchy. The salmon nugget batter used to steamed first until firm to make it easier to cut and breadede, but you can directly shaped the salmon nugget batter with two spoons and then rolled into the breadcrumbs. The unsteamed salmon nugget or sometimes called salmon cake is better be for direct consumption. The frozen raw salmon nugget batter is not cruncy but soggy once you deep fried it, beside  the inner side of the nugget possibly still raw.

You can replace the breadcrums with cornflakes, rolled oats or even thinly sliced almond or another nuts to made a salmon nugget variation. Another version is using finely chopped or grated veggies that mixed into the salmon nugget batter. I like to add grated carrot, cauliflower, broccoli and sometimes bell pepper, beside you can add cheese and any herbs & spice that you like.  Nothing more comforting than your homemade nugget since you can add a little of this and that to suits your own personal licking. One most important thing is you know exactly the ingredients inside yours salmon nugget.
