Baby it’s dry outside: Dehydrated Herbs

Herbs that is! Los Angeles is technically supposed to be a desert . None of the vegetation is natural here… We go through droughts. Herbs cost money. Buy them at the market for $1 and dehydrate or air dry. In supermarkets herbs such as rosemary can cost up to $5-$8. Let’s save a few bucks and dehydrate more… here’s what I have so far. More to come!

 

It’s not weird…Raspberry, dill prawns

I love dill’s surprising versatility. It makes me happy when someone tells me, ‘”That sounds odd. I don’t think that will work” People are very scared of ingredient ideas for some reason. Here I made dill and raspberry love each other oh so well!

4 raspberries
2 prawns
1 pinch of dill
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Set prawns and grapefruit juice aside. (You don’t want to accidentally cook the shrimp with the grapefruit’s acidity.) In a small bag hand mash berries with the rest of ingredients. Place in bag with prawns. Marinate for 30 min- over night. Sautee prawns. Reduce marinade with grapefruit. Enjoy!
