Mick Kipp shares recipes for tofu ceviche, pirate gumbo and pumpkin sloppy pirates (think sloppy joes, only spicier).
1 pound extra firm tofu (cubed or sliced)
1 cup Cuyahoga Fire Hot Sauce Marinade (or hot sauce of your choice)
1 cup lime juice
4 tablespoon catsup
2 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
3 fresh tomatoes, diced
20 pitted black olives, sliced
Press tofu for thirty minutes by placing it on a towel and then covering with plate and weighting it down.
After 30 minutes, slice tofu and add all remaining ingredients and mix and let sit for an hour to marinade.
12 boneless chicken thighs
1 white onion chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of butter
1 pound smoked sausage
2 1/2 cups of water
1 pound shrimp
2 tablespoons of Whiskey Island Cajun seasoning (or cajun seasoning of your choice)
Boil chicken breasts with onion and bell pepper in a large pot of salted water for about 20 min or until cooked through and no longer pink inside.
Drain broth and set aside.
In a large sauce pan stir together flour and butter over a low heat to make a roux. Do not burn the roux!! Cook slowly until the color is a rich dark or brown mustard, twenty to thirty minutes.
Add chicken, sausage and water and bring all to a boil. Cover sauce pan and simmer over low heat for about one and a half hours. Add shrimp and simmer for about one more hour, then add seasoning to taste and serve.
