Roasted Bone Marrow

Bone marrow has been in the menu of a few good restaurants lately.  Tried it in a new restaurant and I was quite disappointed with the quantity that was served...taste was good but the portioning was not.  Ordering these in the resto is quite costly, be ready to shell out around PHP 400 - PHP 550 per order.

Made it myself and saved a lot plus the whole family got to eat it =)  I paired the bone marrow with some rosemary scented bruschetta and a little lemon =)

This was very easy to make all you need are..

bone marrow
olive oil
rosemary, chopped
bread, grilled

1. Pre heat oven to 345 degrees F.
2. Rub rosemary onto bone marrows, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil.
3. Roast the bonesin the oven for 20-25 mins

4. While the bones are cooking, drizzle the bread with some olive oil and rub rosemary sprigs for aroma.  Grill.


Spread marrows on the bread and drizzle with a few drops of lemon and ENJOY =)

Peanut Butter Prawns Spaghetti

Cooked this a few weeks back =)  and this is one of my hubby's favorite dish kinda tastes like Thai Shrimp because of the nutty flavor, just added pasta to the saucey dish. 
If you're allergic to shrimps, you can always substitute it with chicken.

Here's the recipe:


1 1/2 - 2  cups chicken stock
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
pinch of red pepper flakes, crushed (depends on how hot you want it)
1 garlic clove, chopped
6-8 pcs prawns
pasta, cooked
sliced spring onions
roasted peanuts

1. cook pasta
2. Heat chicken stock, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, pepper flakes and garlic in a saucepan, stirring until mixture is smooth.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat.  (continuous boiling may make the consistency too thick and finish product may be dry.  Don't worry if the consistency is watery it will thicken when cooled and pasta is combined.  If it becomes too thick just add a little more chicken stock.)
3. While peanut butter mixture is heating, stir fry seasoned prawns just until cook.  Remove from heat.
4. Add the prawns and cooked pasta to the peanut butter mixture and stir well until well combined.
    Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
5. drizzle with roasted peanuts and spring onions for garnish.

Enjoy =)
