please note, most of the recipes we have made ourself, but some are from other cruising boats we have met along our travels. Where the recipe comes from another boat, we will clearly give them credit. We also want you to know that ALL of the recipes you find on our pages actually work aboard a cruising boat! We will NOT post any recipe that has not been prepared aboard a cruising boat and found to work well in the cruising environment.

Smoked Salmon Frittata
From S/V Amber Sky

We met Amber Sky at anchore in Aqua Verde and shared this wonderful and unexpected breakfast on a glorious morning before snorkeling. This recipe requires a little extra work and oven time, but it was prepared for us by a professional chef who was thrilled with the unexpected bounty of fresh goat cheese found in this small village.

Serves 8

1 Med onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. Butter
12 eggs
1 C. Cream
4 oz. Goat cheese, crumbled
# smoked salmon, chopped  (we had this abord in a foil no-fridge pack, but they also sell smoked tuna that is to die for in Mexico)
3 scallions or green onions, chopped
3 Tbsp. Fresh or dried dill, chopped
1 tea. Kosher salt
tea. Black pepper.

Preheat oven to 350 deg.

Saute onion in butter in a 10 inch. Omelet pan over med-low heat until onion is translucent, about 5 min. In a large bowl, beat eggs, add cream, cheese, salmon, scallions, dill, salt and pepper and combine. Pour mixture over onion and place in oven. Bake for 50 min. until it puffs and knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Pickled Fish in Mustard Dill Sauce
From S/V Pegasus

Fish recipes when cruising are always welcome. This is a good way to “keep” fish longer when you have had a windfall.

1 Kilo fish fillet, Dorado or other firm white fish, cut in thin slices or small chunks
Pickling mixture:
3 C. water
2/3 C. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. Salt

Combine water, vinegar, and salt to make pickling mixture. Pour over fish and refrigerate overnight.

Sauce mixture:
3 Tbsp. Sugar
C. water
1 Tbsp. Red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp. Salt

Drain pickling mixture off fish. Mix the sauce ingredients. Layer fish and sauce in an airtight container. Marinate 2-3 days in the refrigerator. Pickled fish will keep, refrigerated, for 2 to 3 weeks.
