Trout is such a wonderful fish and has a fabulous flavour, combine with a sauce made with tangy lemon juice, piquant capers, and butter. Sauteed almonds make a zesty topping. The perfect combination for the tender, flaky fish.

The trout here is cooked to medium-rare, so it retains a lovely oiliness.

Serve the fish with lemon wedges, green salad or baby lettuce leaves and mashed potatoes.

The almond sauce and herbs from this recipe also go well with roast lamb or beef.

Bolognese Sauce, also known in Italian as ragù alla bolognese.

The Classic Italian Bolognese meat sauce is made with ground beef, pork, and Italian sausage, I just use ground beef as my daughter doesn’t like pork and Italian sausage. But you can add them if you and your family like.

Use it with any pasta, from spaghetti to lasagna, whole wheat, white or gluten-free, or try this Bolognese Sauce with a low-carb, healthier alternative to pasta using Spaghetti squash! It’s still amazingly delicious with half the calories! Spaghetti squash is a favorite ingredient for those seeking a lower-carb, paleo-friendly, clean eating, gluten-free alternative to pasta.

Bolognese (Meat) Sauce Fast2eat

To make a delicious Bolognese Sauce Fast2eat just add Tomato sauce Fast2eat to Tasty Ground beef Fast2eat.
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Keyword: Bolognese Sauce, Fast, Italian, Lasagna, Meat Sauce, Pasta, Sauce
Servings: 8 people
Calories: 349kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 Onion large diced
  • 1 tbsp Minced Garlic or 3 minced cloves
  • 1 Kg Ground beef
  • 2 tsp Beef mix powder
  • 3.5 cup Tomato sauce
  • Paprika optional to taste
  • Green onion optional to taste
  • Thyme dried - optional to taste
  • Oregano dried - optional to taste
  • Parsley dried - optional to taste
  • Basil dried - optional to taste
  • Salt optional to taste
  • Black pepper optional to taste

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large pan, over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add the ground meat and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until meat crumbles and no longer pink and most of the juice has evaporated.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and cook until meat is browned. Use the seasonings you like the most, the important thing is to always taste and understand what was the difference that each seasoning made in the flavor.
  • Taste and add salt if desired. The ground beef has lots of water while you cook it, and you should consider that this water will dry and the avor of the seasoning will become more pronounced. So wait to taste until all the water has evaporated.

Notes

Store leftovers in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 3 or 4 days, or freeze any unused portions for later use for up to 1 month.
Make-Ahead tip: This sauce with pasta tastes just as good the next day! Add a splash of cream and Parmesan cheese and bake in preheated oven at 200C (400F) for about 20 minutes until cheese is golden brown.
*Whichever pasta you use, make sure to cook it al dente, then rinse it with cold water, drain it, and only then add it to the sauce. This will preserve the pasta structure and prevent it from getting mushy in a creamy sauce. Or for low carb option, with Spaghetti squash.
You can also use gluten-free brown rice penne or rice noodles (also known as rice vermicelli), gluten-free lentil penne or gluten-free quinoa pasta, or any other type of gluten-free short pasta. Cook gluten-free pasta according to package instructions. Then drain and rinse with cold water to prevent gluten-free pasta from getting mushy and sticking together.

Tomato Dehydrated with Pink Salt Fast2eat Recipe

The secret is in the dehydration, made with Himalayan pink salt, and also the combination of the Bocconcini in pesto sauce with the savory.
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time1 d 10 mins
Course: Appetizers & Starters, Side Dish
Servings: 6 people
Calories: 126kcal

Ingredients

  • 6 Tomato Roma or any good, ripe tomato
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • Basil pesto sauce
  • Mini bocconcini (baby mozzarella balls)
  • Olive oil
  • Savory
  • Basil
  • Oregano

Instructions

  • Wash all whole tomatoes thoroughly under clean, running water.
  • Cut them into thin slices using this Holder (it is so helpful to cut the tomatoes). I remove the seeds and gelatinous pulp, but it's up to you.
  • Transfer the tomato slices to a Strainer in layers. Splashing the Himalayan Pink Salt into the tomato evenly in each layer. All slices should be with some pink salt.
  • Place theStrainer over a deep Bowl. Leave in the oven (the oven must be OFF and room temperature) for 24 hours.
  • Drain the bocconcini. And using this Egg Slicer Tool cut the Bocconcini cheese and put in an Airtight Glass Container and pour on the Basil Pesto Sauce.
  • After 24 hours, remove the tomatoes from the oven and drain the water from the bowl.
  • In a Glass serving platter, arrange the tomato and bocconcini slices, and drizzle with pesto and olive oil and your favorite herbs. My suggestion is Basil leaves, oregano and Savory.

Notes

I suggest using Roma or plum tomatoes because they have thicker flesh with fewer seeds and less juice than regular tomatoes, but feel free to use any tomato for this recipe. You can add another fresh hardy herbs such as oregano, sage, thyme, rosemary…as desired
This is an original and exclusive recipe, therefore you won't find it or any similar one anywhere else.

Herb Smoked Ham Fast2eat Recipe

A Fast, easy and impressive smoked ham that is full of flavor. It’s the perfect combination and pairs well with just about any side dish!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time50 mins
Total Time1 hr
Course: Appetizers & Starters, Main Dish
Servings: 8 people
Calories: 376kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 Smoked ham Boneless (1.5-2 kg/3-4 Lbs)
  • Parsley chopped
  • Green onion (or Chives) chopped
  • Basil chopped
  • Mint chopped
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • 1/2 cup White wine
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp Honey (or Maple syrup)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the all the ingredients. Do not save a lot on herbs, use at least one tablespoon each.
  • Give some cuts in the ham in a diagonal crosshatch pattern without cutting much into the meat.
  • Rub the herb mixture all over the ham and set aside to marinate at least for 30 to 45 minutes. You can do it a day or two ahead of time, which is nice because you can focus on other aspects of your meal!
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350F). Place the herb crusted ham in a roasting pan.
  • Bake for about 45-60 minutes per kilo (15 minutes per lb.) uncovered. I prefer to use the Countertop Oven than the big stove one. It’s time and energy saver.
  • Remove from oven and serve the sauce over the ham.
  • Serve with your choice of side dishes – Creamy Fancy Coleslaw Fast2eat Recipe, green salad, roasted asparagus, mashed potatoes, rice, quinoa Salad, couscous … would go perfectly! However, this ham will go great with just about any side dish you want to serve. Hope you like it!

Notes

The great thing about making a smoked ham is that it is already fully cooked, so it just needs to heat through. You don’t have to worry about it as much as you would when roasting a turkey.

Bored of canned tomato sauce? This removes the acidity of the tomato and makes canned tomato sauce taste like homemade.

It’s Fast, simple and requires no chopping at all.

It’s the quickest and simplest tricks I’ve learned as a result on how to improve the flavour of canned tomato sauce.

For best results, use a canned tomato sauce that is relatively plain and good quality canned tomato sauce.
