Salad Of Chili Shrimp, Chicorée Frisée, Pear And Sun-Dried Tomato (Or Is It A Taco ?)

>
>
This  morning for breakfast I had leftover pasta from last night, which required a much lighter lunch and no dinner (Maybe a bit of ice cream though 🙂
So, at around noon, off to the fishmonger down the road to get some fresh shrimp and to the supermarket to see what’s available that would be appealing to my desire for a tasty salad. Red pears, chicorée frisée (endive, curly endive, or frisée) and fresh lime for the salad and its dressing, and a small amount of sun-dried tomatoes and it was on. Twenty minutes after I got home, Bella and I were feasting on this superb creation, wrapped in flour tortillas and accompanied by peach ice tea. Bella ate about half the shrimp and a bit of the tortillas and graciously allowed me to enjoy the rest. Life is Good !

Bon Appétit !  Thanks Bella, for your Generosity 🙂

Salade Lyonnaise

>

Here  we have another  classic that shows and proofs why the classics don’t die: They are simply the best !
When all the pretty (and sometimes not so pretty) newfangled high flyers have simply faded away because of lack of substance, practicality and being too heavy on looks and too light on taste and texture, out come the classics again to remind us why they were our favorites in the first place : Taste, texture and simple, appetizing presentation, free from superficial nonsense. What better dish to proof my point than with this wonderful salad which will be equally good as appetizer, side dish, snack or even main course (See below )
,

P.S.
Usually the poached egg is served liquid in the center, but, while I love eggs prepared this way, for my salad I prefer them a bit more waxy (depending on the size of the egg, add about 1 to      1,5  minutes to the cooking time of soft-poached egg)
 P.P.S.
Although smoked bacon is widely used, I prefer the taste and texture of fresh bacon for this dish. If you choose to use smoked bacon, you can forgo the step of simmering the bacon before sauteing.

Midnight Snack (No Crappy Chips With Crappy Salsa)



What’s  a man got to do when brutal hunger strikes at 2.00am ?
– How about this little snack I whipped up last night.
Accompanied by a nice bottle of merlot.
Happily shared with Bella  (the snack, not the wine 🙂

Bon Appetit !    Life is Good !
