Chef Erica’s Taco Bowls

BT Montreal | posted Thursday, Jan 3rd, 2019

Different proteins to add to your taco bowls

Add any of these proteins to a rice or salad bowl with a selection of toppings that your family can add to their bowls to their liking.

 

Fish

  • 3-4 fillets of your favourite white fish (cod, halibut, tilapia, etc.)
  • 1 tbs. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1-2 limes
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • ¼-¾ tsp cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you’d like it)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • toppings of your choice

Simply coat your fish with all of the ingredients except oil and heat a skillet to medium-high heat. Place oil in skillet and once hot lay the fish fillets in the pan. Once the fish reach a dark golden brown flip them. The fish will be done when they are completely white in the middle and flake easily. Gently remove from the pan and use to make tacos or taco bowls.

Pulled chicken

  • cooked chicken shredded (I recommend using a whole rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 small can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • hot sauce of your choice (to taste)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • toppings of your choice

Start off by shredding your chicken and removing any bones. Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add the oil, garlic, cumin, and chili powder and fry for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Add in the tomatoes, hot sauce and chicken. Simmer for 3-5 minutes or until some of the excess liquid evaporated. Taste and season if necessary and serve.

 

Lentil taco meat

  • 1 can lentils
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 can diced tomatoes
  • 4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • your favourite hot sauce (to taste)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • toppings of your choice

Start off in a skillet on medium heat and add in your oil, garlic, onion, chili, cumin, oregano. Sautee until onion are translucent, being careful not to get too brown. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and cook for a few minutes to let excess moisture evaporate and serve.

Chuck Hughes’ Holiday Ham

BT Montreal | posted Monday, Nov 26th, 2018

Serves 10–12 guests

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup orange marmalade
  • ¼ cup Chuck’s maple syrup
  • ¼ cup whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (fresh if possible)
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 bone-in half ham (about 6–10 lbs)

Directions:

  1. Move oven rack to lower third portion of the oven and preheat to 325 °F. Line bottom of a roasting pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup and set aside.
  2. Add orange marmalade, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, bourbon, lemon juice, ground ginger and salt and pepper to a small saucepan, whisk to combine well, and bring to a boil. Set aside.
  3. Remove ham from package and pat dry if too wet. Place ham on roasting rack, flat side down, so the fatty side is facing up.
  4. Gently score the ham in a criss-cross pattern, and brush all over with ½ cup of the prepared glaze. NOTE: Scoring the ham will help the glaze to really sink in and create an amazing flavour.
  5. Cover ham loosely with aluminum foil to prevent drying out or burning.
  6. Bake for about 2–2 1/2 hours, until instant thermometer inserted into the middle of the ham registers 125–130 °F.
  7. Remove roasting pan from the oven and peel back or remove foil from the top and sides of the ham.
  8. Increase oven temperature to 425 °F.
  9. Brush 6 tbsp of glaze over the ham and bake for 20 minutes, brushing ham with additional 6 tbsp of glaze every 6–7 minutes. You’ll be brushing the ham with glaze approximately 3 times during this step.
  10. Be sure to watch that the glaze doesn’t burn, but instead turns a rich, deep golden colour.
  11. Remove roasting pan from oven and place ham on a large cutting board.
  12. Tent loosely with foil and let ham rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

To make mustard sauce for serving: Mix ½ cup whole grain Dijon mustard with ¼ cup glaze.
