The Top Top Versus Spidey Cook-Off Thread

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

The Top Top Versus Spidey Cook-Off Thread

Postby Arachnid » Mon Jul 18, 2011 2:24 pm

Alright GroundHog (<see wot I did there ;) ) this is the challenge...you post your unsustainable inorganic artery clogging drivel and I will post my organic hemp laden sea vegetable master gourmet recipes and we'll see who of the posters lives forever...I wish my good friend and Allie The Don was here butt if I have save you cretins one shake at a time by myself then so be it...

Tonight;

Grilled Watermelon, Shrimp Salad with Feta and Tomato

1-1/2 lb. raw extra-jumbo shrimp (16 to 20 per lb.), peeled (leave tail segment intact) and deveined
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. smoked sweet paprika
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/2 tsp. honey
Vegetable oil, for the grill
1/2 medium head frisée, torn into bite-size pieces (4 cups)
3 cups small-diced seedless watermelon (about 1 lb.)
3 medium ripe red or yellow tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
2 cups yellow cherry or pear tomatoes, halved
6 oz. feta, cut into small dice (1-1/4 cups)
30 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)

Prepare a hot gas or charcoal grill fire.

In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with 2 Tbs. of the lemon juice and the paprika; marinate at room temperature for 5 minutes. Thread the shrimp onto metal skewers or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for at least 30 minutes. Season the shrimp on both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice with the olive oil, honey, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Whisk well.

Clean and oil the grill grates. Grill the shrimp, flipping once, until firm and opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes total.

In a large bowl, gently toss the frisée with 3 Tbs. of the dressing. In a medium bowl, gently toss the watermelon, tomatoes, feta, basil, 2 Tbs. dressing, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Divide the frisée among 4 plates and spoon one-quarter of the watermelon mixture over each. Top with the shrimp skewers, drizzle with the remaining dressing, and serve.

Bring it on Battyboy :drink:

Edit: ass for desert...http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/mixe ... syrup.aspx

Mixed Berries with Vanilla Bean Syrup

1/2 vanilla bean
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 pint (2 cups) fresh raspberries
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blackberries
1/2 pint (1 cup) fresh strawberries
Split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise with a sharp paring knife and scrape out the seeds with the back of the knife; save the empty pod for a garnish, if you like. Put the seeds in a small saucepan, along with the sugar and water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 7 minutes to let the vanilla infuse. Strain through a fine sieve to remove any fibrous pieces of vanilla pod or clumps of seeds. Let cool and refrigerate until completely chilled.

Rinse the raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries and spread them in a single layer on a towel to dry. Hull the strawberries and cut them into quarters.

Just before serving, combine all the berries in a large serving bowl and pour on just enough of the vanilla syrup to lightly coat them, about 3 Tbs. Toss gently.

Drink accommodations for the spicy shrimp entrée

Beer: a nice premium micro Dry-Hopped American Pale Ale should do the trick :cheers:

Wine: sweet little ass white number 8-)

I'll jump in with my latest bbq accessory. This thing works GREAT! Just crumple up some paper in the bottom section (I use a grocery bag) and pour your briquets on top. 10-15 minutes later you're ready to grill.

The other day I took the kid to a Halloween party put on by the local Strong Start folks. Strong Start is a BC Gov sponsored early learning program. small kids read, listen to stories, play and along the way learn. i figure it gets him out interacting with other kids, can't be bad.

Get to the Halloween do, MILF central, butt anyways the kids ar playing and then they get together to hear a story. Then some misguided hippy chick gets her guitar out to sing.

She's changed the words to Ol' McDonald to be all about growing up on an organic, non GM farm. I quietly steamed as she imposed her political will.

After the party I went to this woman and thanked her for her singing and noted how much the kids enjoyed dancing along to her muzak.

Then I asked her who she would be sentencing to death? She looked at me rather puzzled.

I told her that with the earth's population scheduled to hit 7 billion on Oct 31st, it was abundantly clear that that this many people can not be sustained on organic and non GM agriculture. The planet simply does not have the arable land to do so, therefore who dies?

Who is she deciding should die by forcing her organic, non GM agenda on the world?

In the developed world, organic and non GM food carries a price premium making it a luxury item so that would mean we'll let the poor people in the developed world die. Some may not think that is too bad of idea.

In the developing world, it would be the opposite. The poorest of subsistence farmers are the ones who can not afford pesticides and herbicides and they would live while the rest die.

I may not be allowed back.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

You will be about as welcome as a skunk at a picnic!!

Truth is, these people do not want to hear the truth. They also don't want to pay the prices that would be necessary for the grower of "organic" food to do more than subsist.

Now Back to Spidey's recipe's
