    A rather unexpected return of carp (an introduced species) is occurring in many menus of the high end restaurants along the Murray river here.

    Something I never expected to see and I've promised myself a trip north to the border to try it.

    Potato, chorizo, red onion, parley, garlic and eggs... Five or so minutes in the BBQ with the hood down. A tortilla inspired brunch.

    Seems I can let my ego swell a little. Second published recipe in Cruising Helmsman magazine.

    I was a last minute addition to the catering crew on a party boat. I'd hardly consider it cooking, but..

    Arrange a little smoked salmon on a plate in a neat vertically textured pile, add a little shaved baby fennel bulb and some pickled mung beans and pickled white onion stained with a few drops of red food colouring. Top with a few fennel leaves and drizzle lightly with a little champagne vinegar and olive oil.

    You end up with something a whole lot better than smoked salmon with capers and sour cream!

    I was rather impressed with the microwave safe clear plastic plateware. I'd love to know who makes them.

    Sounds good -- kind of a kissing cousin to Mexican-stylle pollo asado, using lemon grass instead of citrus juices.

    Let me doublecheck: you don't add any additional liquid to the marinade mix?

    I usually pickle onions in red wine vinegar, so they turn out fairly red anyway. But the food coloring trick is a good one to remember when I want them to look prettier.....

    Personally there nothing more I like to tuck into as the day looses light as you get ready for a night at sea is very old and dried loaf of bread with a beer.

    I mean very hard old bread, a bit of mold is penicillin and keeps away sexually transmitted diseases or scurvy.

    Some times its so hard it need to be hit with a winch handle to crack it.

    This is far better than a wuffy plate of salad.

    Something you landlubbers would have not even considered is bulk. You dont want to eat heavy foods before you need a to be on watch for the next 14 hours of darkness.

    Think about it,---hardly need to trip to the toilet all the time when passing a shipping lane. Never even thought of that did you?

    Soup and crackers --told you before. Solo sailing does not include gourmet cooking or even cooking well. For the men here this will be obvious and part of the trip and sailing.

    I thought they were for monkeys!!!

    Any way a banana lasts only a few days, bit more than smoked salmon though.

    Look if we are going to talk food on a boat lets get real shall we.

    I dont live to eat, I eat to live. All this buelsh1t photogenic plates of totally impossible food on a boat .

    -------- Ok ille play,---- Makes something of 1 loaf of sliced bread --1 tin of tuna or spam. 1 packet of curry and a Dutch banana (thats a strait one due to Brussels directives)

    --its not difficult. Oh and hurry up its going dark.

    And who decided to turn this thread into 'The Cooking Aboard While Sailing Solo' thread? Wasn't any of the men here, so I guess it was you?

    Most people with a sailboat don't spend their lives making single-handed passages. They usually go out for an afternoon, a day, a weekend, sometimes maybe a week or two. They don't have time to create hard, moldy bread that's up (or down) to your standards...;)

    A week or two would do it?

    sailing solo without females is what its all about --let the bleeding ears heal up and get a fresh outlook on life, take a deap breath , beat the chest and back to work on Monday--you should try it.

    A loaf of hard bread needs to be experienced --if you dont like it your not hungry.

    Boat are not for whimps.

    Didn't catch anything last night, so the backup was a chicken rather than a fish roulade done on the BBQ with the hood down.

    Apparently it's snapper season but they are late for their own party.
