Shrimp, Heart of Palm & Quinoa Salad
The Crystal Palace, MK, WDW (with gratitude to Executive Chef Robert Adams)
YIELD: 6 Servings

1 lb steamed & chilled shrimp
2 ½ cups cooked quinoa
1 can hearts of palm
2 oz fresh baby arugula roughly chopped
½ cup diced red peppers
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup mustard dressing

Mustard Dressing
1 oz lemon juice
2 oz rice wine vinegar
1 oz chopped shallots
1 tbs chopped fresh ginger
2 oz dijon mustard
3 oz olive oil blend
1 tbs celery salt
1 tsp Tabasco
Salt & pepper to taste

Cook the quinoa in a large quantity of salted boiling water (4 times the volume of the quinoa) for about 20 minutes. This washes out the slight natural bitterness of the grain.
Strain and cool off
Steam and cool off the shrimp
Cut the hearts of palm into ¾ inch coins or half coins depending on size. Blend together all the ingredients for the mustard dressing. Assemble everything together in a mixing bowl.

New from All Ears net

AllEars.net has updated. In the past, llyninpa asked us to post the recipes here so we don't use links. How do we all feel about that? Would you rather just go to All Ears net? They posted quite a few of my submissions so those are already posted here. The Tusker House Caple Malay Lamb Curry is the same recipe as Boma's and is already posted the difference is the Tusker House recipe makes at least double the portion.

Review: I made the Roasted Vegetable Pizza (p. 139) and the Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette (page 140) last night and the pizza is very good. The Vinaigrette is one of the best dressings I've ever had. It makes you want to eat lots of salad!

Sukiyaki (Sweet Soy Beef and Vegetable Hot Pot)
Yakitori House, Japan - Epcot
Yield: 4 serving servings
Prep time: 45 minutes

1 pound Beef (paper thin slice)
1 large Onion
1 Bunch Green Onion
½ pound Carrot
2 Packs Japanese Noodle

Sukiyaki Sauce
1/5 Cup Soy Sauce
1/5 Cup Mirin (Sweet cooking Sake)
1 Cup Dashi (Fish Stock)

1 Cup Water
1 inch square Konbu (Sea Weed)
1/2 Cup Bonito Flakes

How to make dashi:
1. Place in a saucepan with konbu and water and soak for 2 hours.
2. Bring saucepan to a rapid simmer over high heat.
3. Remove saucepan from heat, adding bonito flakes.
4. Let stand for 3 minutes, strain through into a bowl.

Method of Preparation
Cut all ingredients into bite-sized pieces. Arrange all ingredients on a large plate and place the plate at the table. Mix Sukiyaki Sauce ingredients. Heat sukiyaki pot at table (electric fry pan or skillet is OK) and heat 1 tablespoon oil in pot. Add beef slices and sear on both sides, then pour sukiyaki sauce in the pan. Add other ingredients when the sauce starts to boil. Simmer until all ingredients are softened.

Cooks Note: Sukiyaki is a very popular one-pot meal in Japan. The main ingredient is thin sliced beef, and it is simmered in a skillet or pan in the sukiyaki sauce with many vegetables and other ingredients. The quality of beef used in Sukiyaki is very important. You might want to ask a butcher to slice the tender part of the beef into very thin slices. The best beef for sukiyaki is called "shimofuri" beef in Japan. Shimofuri beef has lots of fat, but it's very tender and is also very expensive. Sukiyaki is usually cooked at the table, and it's common to eat with others from the same pan.

I'll add it to the request list when I do the update today. I checked the Swan & Dolphin archives & it isn't there and I don't have it on my list either. The archives only go back to Jan 2004, but I have a couple that are from 2002 & 2003. I'm really upset that I didn't keep up with the recipe club back then. I thought the recipes would stay online...didn't realize they'd get bumped off.

For anyone who hasn't found the archives list, here is the link: http://www.swandolphin.com/recipeclub/archives.html
If you want to join their monthly recipe mailing list, there is a link at the bottom of this page: http://swandolphin.com/dining/index.html You only need to provide an email & first name - even though they ask for more.

Since no one else has answered, I'll give my opinion. I used to go out & search for new recipes all the time. But more recently, I've gotten lazy about it. I'm really getting spoiled with all the recipes being in one spot (here) & find that I really like it. So I'd like to see them posted - but will be happy with what everyone else wants to do.

Thanks for all the new recipes! And can I just say that the use of color for the recipe names is really a nice touch. It really makes them stand out even more than just adding the bold.

Since we were talking about the Swan & Dolphin today, I thought I'd post a few of those recipes.

Grand Californian Hotel Apple desserts

I just wrote the Swan and Dolphin that they should be publishing recipes from the actual restaurants (or crediting them) when they send that monthly recipe because I want to see recipes from Blue Zoo, Il Mulino, Garden Grove and Fresh.

They wrote back: "Glad to see you like the recipes as much as we do! Recipes actually come from our chefs throughout the property, not just the restaurants. Naturally, some recipes are "top-secret", so they do not give them out!
Thanks for being a member of our club!"

NMW - maybe you can contact Audrey Cornu (who wrote back to me) at acornu@swandolphin.com and see if she'd pass on the request for Shulas Crab Mac and Cheese.

Below are some recipes from Disneylands Grand Californian Hotel Pastry Chef, Jorge Sotelo who provides desserts for all the restaurants and catering events in the hotel, at movie premiere's etc. These are from 2005 and are beyond the scope of most home kitchens but one could make parts of the recipe.

Apple Crisp
4 Lbs. Apples, peeled and cored (Gala, Granny Smith, or Fiji )

For Apple Crisp:
In a saucepan, melt butter and add sugar. Mix together. Add apples then Jack Daniels. Cook until tender. Mix corn starch with lemon juice, add to the apples. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool in an ice bath.

Combine flour and sugars in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add almonds and toss well. Build apples into circular mold and top off with crisp. Cook in 350° F oven for 30 minutes or until golden.

For Bourbon Ice Cream:
In a saucepan, combine milk, cream, vanilla beans and ½ of sugar. Bring to a boil. In a bowl, place yolks, remaining sugar and whiskey, stirring to combine. Quickly temper cream into the yolks mixture. Strain through a fine sieve. Cool mixture in an ice bath. Once it has cooled, process in an ice cream machine.

For Caramel Sauce:
In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil. Cook until the sugar is deep amber. Add cream slowly and whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pass through a chinois, cool at room temperature.

For Sour Cream Sauce:
In a saucepan, bring the milk, cream and half of sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and maintain at a simmer. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining sugar and yolks, whisk until smooth. Temper the egg yolks by adding one third of the hot cream and place over medium heat, stirring constantly with spatula. When the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon, remove from heat and strain through a fine sieve. Add sour cream and whisk to combine. Chill in an ice bath.

For Final Presentation:
Bring apple crisp out of the oven. Use spatula to remove ring place on plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with sour cream and caramel sauce. Top with Bourbon ice cream and garnish.

¼ Tspn. Ground cinnamon
2 Each Egg yolks
2 Each Whole eggs
1 Cup Milk
¼ Cup Unsalted butter, melted
½ Each Vanilla bean

Apple Filling
4 Each Apples
½ Cup Granulated sugar
2 Tspn. Lemon juice
¼ Cup Colvados brandy
½ Cup Light brown sugar
½ Cup Unsalted butter, melted

4 Cups Apples, diced & unpeeled
3 Cups Water
½ Cup Granulated sugar
Juice of a Lemon
½ Each Cinnamon stick

Ginger Ice Cream
4 Cups Heavy cream
2 Cups Milk
1 ½ Cups Granulated sugar
1 ½ Cups Chopped fresh ginger
12 Each Egg yolks

1 Cup Cabernet sauvignon
6 Oz. Granulated sugar

2 Cups Cream
4 Each Vanilla beans
1 Cup Granulated sugar
10 Each Egg yolks

Fillo Crisp
4 Each Fillo dough sheets
1 Cup Clarified butter
1 Cup Granulated sugar for sprinkling

For Crepes:
Place flour and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl. In a separate small bowl, combine and whisk together yolks, whole eggs and milk. Slowly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until smooth. Combine butter and vanilla bean in a saucepan; melt butter and whisk together. Add melted butter to crepe batter. Using an 8” nonstick sauté pan, make crepes. Stack crepes on top of each other, cover with a damp cloth until ready for use.

For Apple Filling:
Peel, core and cut apples into a large dice. Preheat a large sauté pan. When it is very hot, add the sugar and allow to melt and caramelize until amber in color. Add the diced apples and lemon juice. Sauté quickly, then add the brandy. The brandy will flame up so be careful. Remove from stove and pour the diced apples into a large bowl.
In a food processor, place one third of the sautéed apples, all of the brown sugar and the melted butter. Pureé until smooth. Stir back into the remaining sautéed apples and allow the filling to cool.

For Applesauce:
Place ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes then remove from heat and allow to steep for 10 to 20 minutes. Strain through a cloth. Cool in an ice bath. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Mix with apple filling and place 3 tablespoons of apple mixture in the center of a cinnamon crepe. Fold over the edges to create a round puck shape. Fill remaining crepes and cover with a damp towel until ready to serve.

For Ginger Ice Cream:
Place the cream, milk, 1 cup of sugar and the ginger in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer then remove from heat and allow to steep for 20 to 30 minutes. Place the egg yolks and remaining ½ cup sugar in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Put the ginger mixture back on the heat and bring to a full boil. Quickly whisk the boiling mixture into the yolks and sugar. Strain the mixture through a fine chinois and place into an ice bath to cool. Process in an ice cream machine.

For Cabernet Reduction Sauce:
Bring the cabernet and sugar together in a saucepan on a medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture reaches a thick consistency. Let cool and set aside.

For Tahitian Cream Anglais:
In a saucepan, bring the milk, cream, vanilla beans and half of sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and maintain at a simmer. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining sugar and yolks. Whisk until smooth. Temper the egg yolks by adding one third of the hot cream and place over medium heat, stirring constantly with a spatula. When the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon, remove from heat and strain through a fine sieve. Chill in an ice bath.

For Fillo Crisp:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Carefully spread a sheet of fillo dough on a flat surface. Lightly brush the dough with the butter. Place another sheet of dough on top. Repeat the process until all four sheets have been used. Cut the dough into desired shape. Lightly sprinkle sugar on a parchment-lined sheet tray. Place the dough shapes on the sugar and lightly sprinkle the dough with more sugar. Place a second sheet of parchment paper on top of the dough. Cover with another sheet tray, creating a sandwich. Bake until golden brown, 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

For Final Presentation:
Place crepe on middle of plate on top of Tahitian crème sauce. Top with a scoop of ginger ice cream. Place a fillo triangle on top. For garnish, drizzle with cabernet sauce.

Does anyone have the recipe for the Pan-Seared Tilapia with the green & white bean salad from Coral Reef? It doesn't look that difficult, but it was so good!

I have a basic p-nut sauce recipe, but just wondered how it compared.

I just noticed that I have a Sweet & Sour Sauce recipe from the Polynesian. We're still searching for the recipes displayed above in blue.


½ c water
1 c white vinegar
1 c granulated sugar
2 tsp red food coloring, optional
2 Tbl cornstarch
2 Tbl water
½ c diced green pepper
½ c diced onion
½ c diced pineapple

In a saucepan, combine ½ cup water, the vinegar, sugar and food coloring if desired. Bring to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons water and stir into vinegar mixture, using a whisk. Cook and stir 5 minutes. Add green pepper, onion and pineapple. Serve on shrimp, chicken or pork. Refrigerate leftovers.

A few others from Epcot that I don't see on the index list...

Plantain Fried Catfish
From Garden Grill, EPCOT

1/16 lb Plantain chips - ground
1/16 lb Corn flakes - ground

Mix ingredients together.
Coat fish and deep fry.
Serves: 4 (Makes 2 ounces of coating.)

[NOTE: We tried this coating, but didn't deep fry it. We spayed a non-stick pan with olive oil. The result was nothing like what's served at GG...it was very bland. Everyone agreed that it wasn't so much the difference in frying method as much as it was the oil in the deep fryer picks up flavor from everything else that's been fried in it. We tried it a 2nd time & put a bit of cajun spice in with the plantain/corn flake mix and quite liked it. But in the end decided that we'd just sprinkle the cajun spice on the fish & bake it.]

Orange Chicken

Yield: 4 servings

8 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thick strips

Dash white pepper powder
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste

1 tsp cooking wine
½ tsp Sesame oil

¾ c all-purpose flour
¼ c cornstarch

1 Tbl light soy sauce
Peel from ¼ small orange, chopped
½ Tbl chili paste
½ Tbl chicken base
1 Tbl cornstarch
Pinch salt
1 Tbl cooking oil

1. For sauce, mix all ingredients except oil and orange peel. Heat oil in frying pan. Stir-fry chopped orange peel until fragrant. Pour orange-sauce mixture into frying pan and heat sauce over medium high heat. Stir until mixture bubbles. Set aside and keep warm.

2. For chicken, mix dry ingredients. Add oil. Stir in water. Put mixture aside 30 minutes. Heat cooking oil to 320 F. Dredge chicken in batter mixture, coating well. Using tongs, lower chicken pieces into hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

[Recipe note: Garnish with orange slice and chopped green onions.]
{Editorial note: Nutty sesame oil is a key ingredient, and you'll notice it is used sparingly. That's because the flavor is so distinctive. Sesame oil is high in polyunsaturated fats ranking fourth behind safflower, soybean and corn oil.}

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl of an electric mixer at medium speed, until mixture is light and fluffy and the sugar has almost dissolved. Add egg yolks a little at a time until the sugar has completely dissolved. Beat in sour cream. Add vanilla and continue mixing until completely blended.
2. In a separate large bowl, whisk egg whites with electric mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Reduce speed to medium and add the cream of tartare. Gradually add sugar. Beat at high speed until the sugar has dissolved into the whipped egg whites. Fold into the butter mixture.
3. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Gently fold into the butter mixture.
4. Scoop into a 9.5" x 5" x 3" loaf pan (or muffin molds) and bake for 50 to 60 minutes for loaf pans (or 20 minutes for muffin molds), or until cake is golden brown and toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat ingredients together using an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

To Serve: Cut the pound cake into 1/4" thick slices. (You should get 30 slices, or 10 muffins cut into three slices each.)
Layer whipped cream between three slices of cake. Mix warm syrup with the Mixed Berries and scoop it next to layered cake.
Top with additional whipped cream.
Cook's notes: the berry mixture could be flambéd with brandy liqueur before serving.

Animal Kingdom Lodge, from Pastry Chef Edward Villacorta (from the Orlando Sentinel)
Yield: 12 servings.

4 boxes Caramel deLite cookies *

Coconut pineapple filling:
3 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
1 2/3 cups sugar
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups pineapples, diced and cooked
1 tablespoon brown sugar for pineapples
1/2 cup shredded coconut, toasted

1. In a saucepan, cook the diced pineapples with the brown sugar for about 3 minutes. Set aside to completely cool.
2. To prepare coconut pineapple filling, using a medium-size stainless-steel pot, combine coconut milk, sugar and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Make a slurry with the cornstarch and 1/2 cup water in a separate bowl. As soon as the coconut milk boils, stir in the dissolved cornstarch and stir vigorously until the mixture thickens and boils for the second time. Add the cooked pineapples in the mixture and then set aside the filling to cool in room temperature.
3. Toast shredded coconut in a 325 F oven for about 7 minutes or more until you get a golden brown color. Set aside to cool.
4. To assemble the dome, prepare 10-inch-by-3 1/2-inch-deep metal bowl, by lining the inside with plastic wrap. Place 1 layer of Caramel deLite Cookies (about 24 pieces or 1 1/2 boxes) on the bottom of the bowl, the top of the cookies facing down. Start from the center of the bowl and work your way up the sides of the bowl. Go all the way to the top. Use cookies cut in half for the top, so that you can get a straight edge on the top. This is to ensure a straight edge when the dome is inverted for the finished cake.
5. Place a third of the slightly cooled filling over the cookies and sprinkle a layer of roughly chopped Caramel deLite cookies ( about 10 pieces) over it. Spread the rest of the filling over the middle cookie layer evenly and lay one layer of Caramel deLite Cookies (about 20 pieces) with the chocolate side up. This will serve as the bottom of the cake when inverted. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and let it set for an hour.
6. To unmold, lay a 10-inch cakeboard on the top of the bowl and gently invert the dome. Remove the plastic wrap. Cover the bottom edge of the dome with toasted coconut and serve.

Cooks Note: These Girl Scout cookies are wafers covered in chocolate, caramel and coconut.

Chocolate Spice Soufflé
Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Bakery, Chef Erich Herbitschek (Cooking with Mickey 1998)
Serves 6 - 8

2 tablespoons butter, softened, plus additional for soufflé dish
1/2 cup granulated sugar plus additional for soufflé dish
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup milk
5 large eggs
5 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled (do not use unsweetened)

1. Lightly butter and sugar a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish, shaking out any excess sugar.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg.
3. In a 2-quart saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and stir in the flour mixture. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and add the milk, whisking constantly. Return to the heat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the mixture boils. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes longer, or until the batter pulls away from the side of the pan.
4. Remove the sauce pan from the heat and stir in the egg yolks and the melted chocolate. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool completely.
5. Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar just to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the cooled chocolate batter.
6. Transfer the cooled chocolate batter to the prepared soufflé dish; it should be about one quarter full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until well risen. Serve immediately.

Cooks Note: the spices add truly distinctive, unexpected flavors to the classic chocolate soufflé.
