Honey Roasted Vegetables

Cajun French:  le jardinage (lu jar-deen-aj) – vegetables

 

Veg PlatedThe farmers market was teeming with young vegetables this week; eggplant, radish, squash, peppers were begging to be purchased.  We generally grill our vegetables but this week we decided to try roasting.  After slicing the vegetables we tossed them with Cajun olive oil and local honey.  The results were awesome!  The vegetables were accompanied by pan grilled salmon and salad.  This recipe is very simple to prepare yet full of flavor and aromas.  Honey is the star of this dish so make sure you use high quality local honey.

Watermelon Salad with Grilled Shrimp

Cajun French:  le melon doux (lu m’lon doo) – watermelon

 

Salad Shrimp 2 on sideWatermelon and shrimp – two of our favorites.  That said, it took John a moment to agree to use them together in a dish.  Laurie was ready in fact she is always up for a combination of foods.  Once John agreed we took to the kitchen and salad making.  As usual we wanted to give the dish a Cajun flair so we introduced Cajun olive oil and local honey along with cane vinegar.  The ingredients were purchased at our local farmers market with the mint coming from our herb patch.
