Fish Finger Sandwich in Uuni (BBQ Week)

Ben Forte from BBQ Forte and United Q BBQ Podcast has shared his Uunified fish finger sandwich – all cooked in Uuni, including the bread! Fish Finger Sandwich

Uunified Fish Finger Sandwich with Jalapeno Tartar Sauce

 

You can’t beat a fish finger sandwich! In fact, back in February Birds Eye searched for the UK’s most innovative and attention-grabbing fish finger sandwich creation, I wish I had been around at the time as this recipe is a real winner!

Ingredients

Fish
400g Cod Loin
Juice of Half a Lemon
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Italian Mixed Herbs
½ tsp Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper

Bread
½ tsp Yeast
150g White Bread Flour
150g Wholemeal Bread Flour
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
170ml Water

Tartar Sauce
5 tbsp Mayonnaise
2 tsp Chopped Capers
4 tsp Chopped Gherkins
2 tsp Chopped Jalapenos
1 tsp Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp Lemon Juice

Method

  1. First we will make the dough for the bread and allow it to prove. Put all your dry ingredients in a bowl then add the wet ones and knead into a dough.
  2. Separate the dough into 10 to 12 small balls and leave them to prove in a warm place for at least 2 hours for best results.
  3. Next make your tartar sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside ready for later.
  4. Mix together the garam masala, paprika, mixed herbs, garlic powder, salt & pepper. This is your rub/seasoning.
  5. Cut your fish into the desired fish finger size, I think just under an inch wide is best.Fish Finger Sandwich cutting
  6. Squeeze the lemon juice all over the fish and then sprinkle the rub mixture over the top.Fish Finger Sandwich cut
  7. Get your Uuni up to a high temperature ready to make your breads.
  8. Hand stretch you bread to be about 3 to 4 inches long and an inch and a half wide.Fish Finger Sandwich bread
  9. When your Uuni is up to temperature cook you breads in batches, maybe 3 at a time turning each one after around 15 seconds.

  10. Once you have made all your breads put a cast iron sizzler pan with a small amount of oil in to heat up.
  11. Using a heat proof glove or tongs remove the cast iron pan from the Uuni and place 3 or 4 fish fingers in the pan and return to the Uuni for around 1 minute.Fish Finger Sandwich preparation
  12. Once your fish is cooked slice open your breads add a little tartar sauce and a fish finger.
  13. Enjoy!

Spanish Prawn Skewers – Wood Fired (BBQ Week)

We’ve got another BBQ x Uuni recipe by Daniel Shahin from United Q, the UK BBQ podcast. Today we cook Spanish Prawn Skewers in Uuni!

Spanish Prawn Skewers in Wood Fired Uuni

Serves 2

Ingredients
12 Large Raw Prawns (heads and shell removed but leave the tails on)
2 Cloves of Garlic minced
tsp Cumin
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
30ml Olive Oil
Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon
1 tsp of Sea Salt
Wedge of Lemon to Serve

Method
1. Make the marinade by combining all of the ingredients except for the Spanish Prawn Skewers and whisk.
2. Add the Prawns and Marinade for about an hour.
3. Fire up the Uuni
4. Put your cast iron pan in to warm up.
5. Thread the Prawns onto your Skewers (if using bamboo skewers soak them in water first).
6. When the Cast Iron is smoking hot move it to the front of the Uuni and add the Prawns with the handles hanging out the front of the Uuni so you can rotate the prawns during the cook. The prawns will take about 3-4 minutes to cook but baste them with the remaining marinade halfway through the cook.
7. Once the Prawns are completely opaque they are cooked.
8. Take them out of the Uuni and serve the Spanish Prawn Skewers immediately with a wedge of Lemon.

Seafood Feast made with Uuni (BBQ Week)

Marcus Bawdon from Country Wood Smoke has joined us for BBQ Week and offered his tops tips for cooking a seafood feast in Uuni!

Seafood Feast preparation
Wood-fired Seafood Feast

I’ve become a big fan of cooking in a wood fired oven over the years, and seafood works particularly well cooked in the searing dry heat of a wood fired oven at 300+ deg C. Shellfish such as scallops, mussels and razor clams are a definite winner for me.

I’d recently been sent a Uuni sizzler pan to add to my collection, giving me room to fit 2 pans in the Uuni 2S at a time. I’d picked up some lovely shellfish to cook and a couple of handfuls of samphire.

One of my favorite simple flavours for shellfish, and a difficult one to beat is drizzling the hot shellfish with garlic, lemon and herb butter.

I melt a good knob of butter, stir in a couple of finely chopped garlic cloves, a good squeeze of lemon, and a handful of fresh chopped parsley, and then simply drizzle over the shells.

Mussels and scallops are well loved shellfish, but razor clams are less well known, due to being tricky to get hold of. I am lucky that my local farm shop stocks these reasonably regularly as “fishing bait” but I love to eat them..

There are no fancy techniques or methods to cooking seafood like this, just pop on a hot cast iron sizzler and into the wood fired oven running at 300 deg C, these can be cooked on a hot BBQ too.

A few minutes at these temperatures are enough to cook the seafood, then drizzle with the tasty melted butter. I cooked the razor clams and mussels first, then the scallops in the herb butter. I then loaded a plate up to serve with steamed samphire and a wedge of lemon.

A crisp white wine and a chunk of crusty bread would work really well here too.

White Mussel Pizza

We originally had high hopes for a (Connecticut) classic white clam pizza, but alas, the supermarket didn’t have any clams! No complaints however, as this white mussel pizza turned out to be absolutely fabulous! We made some fantastic wood-fired mussels in the Uuni last year, but we had never tried them on a pizza before. We used a packet of pre-cooked mussels for this recipe, but you can refer back to our older blog post if yours need to be cooked first.

Recipe
Classic dough
Classic béchamel sauce
Mussels (pre-cooked), or if you’re cooking them yourself, click here.
Pine nuts
Olive oil
Fresh basil (to garnish)

Method
Take your mussels out of the packet and place in a bowl. You may not need the entire packet for the pizza.
Next prepare your béchamel sauce.
Once the sauce is ready, it’s time to light up the Uuni, and get ready to prepare your pizza.
Spread your classic dough over your floured pizza peel, and cover the base with béchamel sauce.
Next, add some mussels to the pizza (still in shells), followed by a sprinkling of pine nuts. Remember that you shouldn’t use any mussels that are closed, these are bad.
Slide your pizza into the hot Uuni and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from the heat, garnish with fresh basil and season with black pepper.

Mussels in Creamy White Wine and Parsley Sauce

Happy New Year to our Uuni chefs all over the world! Our first recipe of 2015 is mussels, a perfect tasty recipe to begin the new year in style. Consider the wine content as a semi hair-of-the-dog! Everybody thinks that mussels are a faff, but those people are wrong! Either that or they haven’t got an Uuni yet. With this quick and easy wood-fired recipe, mussels only take 10 minutes including preparation! And they taste lovely too…

Recipe
1kg mussels
Large glass of white wine
Fresh parsley, chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 pot of single cream

Method
Light up your Uuni and leave it to heat up while you prepare the mussels.
Pour the mussels into a large container filled with cold water and stir them around with your hands to clean them thoroughly.
Throw away any mussels with broken shells.
If there are any barnacles on the shells you can use a sharp knife to scrape them off. While you’re doing this make sure you also cut off any beards from the mussels (the brown wispy bits).
If you find any open mussels, give them a strong tap with your knife or on the worktop. If they don’t close – throw them away. (They are dead and could make you ill.)
Rinse the mussels a final time and drain.
Pour into a pan that could fit into your Uuni. Make sure that the pan is no more than half full. The mussels need space to move in order to cook properly.
Add the wine, single cream and chopped shallot and place in the Uuni to cook for 2-4 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in your fresh parsley.
Season and serve.

Chilli & Garlic Prawn Salad with Avocado

This is a fancy alternative to your standard prawn cocktail. The perfect traditional seafood dish with a twist. Beautiful, fast and versatile – just like the Uuni!

Recipe
450g of prawns
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 chillies, chopped
handful of fresh parsley
4 tbs mixed seeds
6 tbs olive oil
Fresh salad leaves
1 avocado, sliced

Method
Rinse your prawns in cold water and drain them.
Marinate them for an hour in a bowl with the seeds, garlic, oil, parsley and chopped chilli.
Now light up your Uuni and keep it hot. These prawns cook on a high temperature.
While you’re waiting for the Uuni to heat up, prepare your salad leaves, chop your avocado and serve into bowls.
Pour your marinated prawns into a pan and place in the Uuni for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve the hot prawns on top of your prepared salads and enjoy.
