As a punishment to Wild Boar for trying out his 'Masterchef' stunt in my kitchen and taking ingredients meant for seafood curry without his Bacon's permission , today he has to guest post for me....rest day for his Bacon ( hah ...bacon indeed ) !
Guest Post by the Wild Boar :-
It’s been quite a while since the Wild Boar’s was last mischievious in the kitchen so I decided to surprise my half side of bacon (the Wifey) with a soup for dinner. As usual I rely on my creative inspiration to concoct something from nothing. So I rummaged into the fridge and freezer and to my delight found practically all I needed.
I have always equated cooking with the work of an Artist … you just need the inspiration and simply put … ‘The Mood’. After some serious scrounging inside the fridge I found some white squids. Medium sized prawns, tofu , shallot leaves and BEST of all some MISO paste !!! What more could the mischievious Wild Boar ask for! Its all there the only other thing missing is a pot water and some serious cooking.
And to add to a slightly mysterious flavour …. Terriyaki sauce just two teaspoons
I dumped all the seafood into a medium boiling concoction of miso paste , a little teriyaki a dash of salt and some careful cooking all about 15mins. Added some tofu and japanese seaweed just before serving. Chopped some spring onions for the garnishing and… ..
VIOLA !! Japanese Miso Soup Wild Boar Style. I must say it tasted really good too as I did not expect it to anyway. So much for being modest ? Men can be full of surprises when the mood strikes …. Ahem ! Ahem!
So to all the men out there … Fear not if the other half goes on strike … just give the wild boar a call…. hahaha
Thank you Wild Boar for taking the punishment well and giving me a rest and thank you readers and friends for the support in dropping by :)) The soup was great...tasty and delicious :)
Have a nice day !
