Avocado Dressing
Cushaw Squash Pie
Goodnight Cioppino



Avocado Dressing

This is nice in summer, especially with Mexican food:

2 ripe Haas (black skinned) avocados, roughly chopped in large chunks
1/2 cup of tomato salsa
2 rounded tbsp. of mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. of cumin
1/8 tsp of chili powder
1 tbsp. of fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

Blend well in food processor or with immersion blender.

Serve over lettuce wedge with chopped tomatoes.


Cushaw Squash Pie

My local farmer delivered something I've never had before: Cushaw Pumpkin or Squash.

I found this recipe online:

INGREDIENTS:
1 unbaked pie shell
2 1/2 cups cooked, mashed cushaw
1/4 cup cream
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
2 tablespoons butter

PREPARATION:
Stir together the mashed cushaw and cream; add beaten eggs. Mix well and add sugar, flour, salt, nutmeg, and allspice; mix well to blend. Blend in lemon extract and butter.

Pour mixture into the prepared unbaked pie shell and bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake about 40 minutes longer.

I modified it a bit by leaving out 1/4 cup sugar and it still tasted great - different, almost like a southern chess pie.

Goodnight Cioppino

one medium onion, chopped fine
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup each, fresh red and green peppers, chopped fine
several tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
1/2 cup of red wine
1/2 cup of fish stock
2 cups of chicken broth
1 cup fresh raw shrimp
8 ounces fresh white flesh fish, chopped into chunks
1 cup of fresh raw bay scallops
assorted spices, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste

Cover the bottom of a stock pot with olive oil. Sautee onion, celery and fresh peppers until soft and translucent. Add tomato sauce, chicken and fish broth, bring to a boil, then quickly cover the pot and simmer on low for 20 minutes.

Add wine, seafood and spices, simmer on low for an additional 7 minutes.

Serve with a salad and garlic bread or over pasta, along with a nice bottle of red.

Notes: next time, try this with all fish broth and available fresh shellfish - eg. mussels, clams, crab legs or lobster.
