Kofta (Kafta) Pita Sandwich

Kofta (Kafta) Pita Sandwich by Salad Foodie

Kofta is a recipe taught to me by Ahmad, a young man who lived with our family for two years. Kafta and Ahmad's Tabouli have become Middle Eastern standards in our family menus since then. I am sure ground lamb is the meat of choice for this creation, but we use a mixture of extra lean beef (85%) and ground turkey. I often season the…

Iranian Cotlet

Iranian Cotlet by LK

This has to be one of my favorite Persian dishes and definitely a comfort food for me. Traditionally made with ground beef and various spices, my mom makes her own version of these cutlets with ground turkey that is crispy on the outside while still being soft on the inside. Makes great leftovers especially if you put it in a pita…

Grilled Steak with Israeli - North African BBQ Rub

Grilled Steak with Israeli - North African BBQ Rub by John Spottiswood

Almost nothing tastes better on steak or lamb that is thick enough to slice than an Israeli or North African spice rub. I combined a bit of both in this rub, using the base from an Israeli Hawaij rub and adding coriander which is more commonly found in Moroccan rubs. The combination is phenomenal. You won't be disappointed!

Fish Tahini

Fish Tahini by John Spottiswood

This is a beautiful and tasty dish that I cooked for a group on a getaway weekend at a winery. I was inspired to cook this by the wonderful grilled fish dishes I had almost every night on the greek island of Kos just off the coast of Turkey. This recipe is a bit more elaborate than what I had in Greece, but it is truly delicious. I…

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant by John Spottiswood

This is another great recipe from the best of the San Francisco Chronicle. The combination of the lamb and eggplant with the rich and wonderful lemon infused sauce is just amazing. Meaty lamb shanks or leg meat are cooked in aromatic liquid before being roasted over slices of eggplant. I think the original recipe over weighted the…
