Would you be interested in some roasted duck meat? If your answer is positive, then join us in pan-searing the fat duck breast in its own drippings and use these to concoct a raspberry sauce. This time try to use a spelt and vegetable mix side-dish with raw fennel and cucumber. Well?
sweet & sour
Seared and roasted duck breast served over cinnamon-flavored rice is already a good thing. However, marinating the meat first in a honey plum jam and soy sauce mixture which we’ll then use as a sweet umami sauce is much better. Did we mention we toss some plums into the baking dish?
You’ll need a smoked mackerel ready for this one because we’ll concentrate on the side-dish and sauce. It’s a no-brainer warm and fruity ‘salad’ made with grilled beetroot slices and apricots wherein we add some quartered figs. We serve the fish and side-dish drizzled with a lemony pomegranate sauce.
Let’s get a sweet and sour blueberry cake on the table, this time. A refreshing ultra-creamy dessert made with yogurt, cream cheese, and whipped cream. Of course, you can use fresh blueberries, but we were out of them and so we grabbed some frozen ones. Serve the cake garnished with even more blueberries, raw or thawed, and with mint leaves.
Add some sweet-sour complexity and tropical touch to your roasted drumsticks by bringing tropical fruits into the equation. Therefore, coat the meat with a full-of-flavor dressing made from pomegranate syrup and herbs and add lemon, tangerine, orange, and grapefruit slices to the baking tray.
What about bringing the mild crispiness of kohlrabi and apple together? This way, an incredibly refreshing and tasty salad takes shape in only 5 minutes. Flavor it further with an acidic and hot dressing. This way, summer heat will be easier to cope with.
You may have heard about the French dish terrine. Well, this one has nothing to do with that savory dish. Instead, it honors the citrus fruits by bringing orange, grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon together inside a loaf pan. We cover them with a star anise-flavored sweet mixture of white wine and peach champagne, then „forget” about it in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
Candies are such a classic dessert; however, you should always be ready for a surprise when it comes to them. These crunchy chocolatey sweet bites are lemony-flavored little bombs. The sour cherry hidden inside each one of them complements the chocolate to perfection.
You must try the combination of sweet and acidic in the form of this sour cherry cheesecake. We portioned it into mini cheesecakes with a cookie cutter. Now trust our serving suggestion and serve these guys garnished with crumbled pistachios. You just won’t regret it!
Although colorful and funny-looking, these jelly shots are not for the kids. You’ll find other uses for the citrus fruits’ pulp and keep their shells this time. Also, adding some beer into the mixture will bring a little cheekiness to this dessert. In fact, you can use pretty much any other alcoholic beverage you prefer.
The mighty orange is the star of the show here! It’s in the batter (orange zest and orange blossom water) and we add it to the cardamom-spiced syrup as orange juice and more orange blossom water. The cake owes its spongy texture to the almond flour and corn flour. Serve it with whipped cream. Did we mention that it has no gluten at all?
