    Default Favourite Recipes On Board - Quick and Easy

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for inspiration for meals that can be made quickly from fresh ingredients on a 2 burner hob + oven while lying at anchor. Any good ideas would be very gratefully received. This forum seems like the best one to ask for help.

    I've already got an excellent prawn curry and spaghetti bolognese recipe but for some reason I've got a bit of a mental block and have a group of 5 friends coming for a week aboard next week.

    Eeek!

    Here's the prawn curry ...

    40g Olive Oil
    100g Onions
    1-2 Green or Red chillis
    10g fresh corriander
    20g Ginger
    3 Garlic cloves
    2 teaspoons cumin
    2 teaspoons coriander powder
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric
    1 teaspoon salt
    70g tomato puree
    1 tin coconut cream
    800g peeled prawns

    plus rice ....

    Chop the onions relatively fine, chop chillis, fresh coriander, ginger and garlic very fine and cook everything in the olive oil, covered for 5-6 mins till it all goes soft.

    Add all the spices and salt and cook for another 5 mins.

    Add tomato puree and coconut cream and cook for another 5-6 mins.

    Add prawns and cook on a very low heat (enough to warm the prawns through but not turn them to rubber), about another few mins.

    Serve with rice and where available, naan bread (from a packet, warmed in the oven)

    This is worth having in my opinion, although some recipes have a few too many ingredients.
    You don't say whether your guests are meat people or allergic to everything?
    Stir frys such as Spicy Pork with Stirfry Greens is an easy option?
    Sausage Hot-Pot. Meatball Casserole. Spicy Lamb with Chickpeas.
    I could go on....and on...

    Pressure cooker, throw a load of edible stuff in and some herbs/spices. Let it hiss for 5/10 minutes. Let it cool own so pressure drops.

    Open and eat

    Family favourite - my offspring were practically raised on this simplified kedgeree known to the family as "boat splodge":

    Hard boil a few eggs, chuck them in a bucket of seawater so the shells come off easily. Rinse the pan. Cook some rice in it. Add lots of butter, a good dose of turmeric and some tinned fish, add the shelled eggs, stir, serve.

    Or Calamares con arroz tinto. Squid, short grained rice, red onion, sliced broccoli, fish stock, white wine, squid ink. Garnish with parsley & lemon zest. All in one pan and a bit different.

    Pasta, a tin of sardines, garlic, hot sauce.

    Cook the pasta
    Drain the water and add the sardines (chopped/flaked into bits)
    Add garlic paste and cook for for a bit longer
    Add hot sauce to taste.

    1 pot, 15 minutes.
