Since making this piquillo pepper dish about a month or so back, I have not really found much inspiration to get in the kitchen and create. I am rejuvinated now after last weekends backyard BBQ’ing and the excitement of starting a new job Monday. Now, I just need to figure out what to work on this weekend.
The beautty of this pepper dish is that it started out as the stuffed version, but the leftover filling turned into a sexy crab cake. An accidental creation that out did the intended. My goal for today will be to replicate this experience – to set out to make a certain dish and accidentally create an even better second.
As for the recipe, of course I failed to write it down. One of these days I will go back and remake this and be sure to record how I did it. I do know the most important part, like most dishes, is selecting the right ingredients. Whole Foods has the imported roasted piquillo peppers, the lump crab meat, and the canned smoked trout. From there, you really can’t go wrong.
