The Scoville Heat Unit...Good To Know If You Like Hot Food

Since some of us like hot food, I mean really hot, maybe it would be useful to know more about "the heat in food". There are many kinds of peppers and each have their degree of heat (hotness). Maybe we like hot food but not too hot, so by having a good knowledge of The Scoville Heat Units for every kind of pepper we plan to eat, maybe we can limit the damage that can cause a pepper to our palates.

Taramo-Salata....Another Typical Greek Dip

Photo Courtesy Of Wikipedia




To make Taramo-Salata you will need
 -  7 slices of 2-3 days old bread without the outer crust  OR 2 medium well boiled potatoes.
 -  200 gms of fish roe Tarama (the red not the white).
-  2 Tbsp. crushed, smashed onion turned into a paste.
-  1½ cups of extra virgin olive oil.
-  1/3 cup lemon juice.
-  3 finely sliced spring onions.
Method:
The bread way;
-  Soak the bread in some water.  When it is well soaked, squeeze all the water out.
-  Put the Tarama in a mortar and grind into a paste with the pestle.
-  Add squashed onion and continue to grind while adding a drizzle of olive oil.
-  While working the mixture, add some bread then some oil and continue grinding.
-  Continue the above step until you have used up all the bread. 
-  Still grinding add some lemon (but not all) keep grinding until the acidity is acceptable to your taste.
-  All the above steps can be made using the blender.  Just add all ingredients and mix. Then add the oil slowly to your taste.
-  All this preparation must be done quickly.  You want to end up with a thick,and creamy paste.
The potato way:
-  Instead of the bread you can use 2 medium well boiled potatoes.If the Taramo-Salata comes out too thick, you can add some soda water. The carbon dioxide in the water will make it fluffy and creamy.
Whichever way you make the Taramo-Salata, you can add a handful of chopped nuts, a couple of olives and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil at the end before serving.
Enjoy!
Stelio

Chicken Tikka Roast...Hot Food Is Good For The Heat

Spicy hot food is good for the heat because it makes you sweat, then comes the breeze to cool you down. That is why the Bedouins of the Western Desert of Egypt wear wool and drink hot tea during summer, the Mexicans eat Jalapeño peppers and the Africans with their Pili Pili.
