Pavlova with lime -and passioncurd

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE


  

This is the summery pavlova I made the other day, and it was super good, especially with this tasty lime and passioncurd!

You need:

MARINGUE BOTTOMS

3 pcs egg whites
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tsp cornflour

Lime and passionfruit curd

2 limes (zest of one and the juice of both)
3 pcs p passion fruit
25 g butter
0.75 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1 egg

TOPPING

3 cup whipping cream
berrys or fruits

Meringue Bottoms

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.

Whisk the egg whites into meringue, really hard, the bowl should be able to turn upside down.

Add the sugar and lemon juice and whisk until the meringue is glossy and forms small peaks. Mix the cornflour.

Pour the meringue mixture into a piping bag or plastic bag and pipe round bottoms, about 12 cm in diameter on a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake and turn the heat down after 15 minutes to 100 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes.

Take out and feel the meringue, it will be tough on the outside and creamy inside. If it seems too much creamy, bake 10-15 minutes. Let cool on a rack.

Lime and passionscurd

Boil water in a large saucepan to simmer the curd.

Grate the zest from the lime and squeeze out the juice.

Pass the guts from the passion fruit into a sieve by scraping around it and squeeze it hard against the edges with a spatula so that the juice runs out and the kernels remain.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the sugar, egg yolks, eggs, lime juice and zest.

Place the pan in the water bath and whisk until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Let cool it cool then pass through a sieve.

Garnish

Whip the cream.

Add the curd on the meringue, top with whipped cream and garnish with fruit. Serve your pavlova immediately. :)

Herb marinated pork with creme of artichokes

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

IMG_9644 IMG_9643 IMG_9645 IMG_9646
I did this summer dish this week, it’s so good! I grilled the pork tenderloin but you can also fry it and then use the oven. :) The tenderloin is served cold so you can easily prepare the dinner early if you want. For this I had roasted potatoes in the oven. :)


You need: 

600 g pork fillet
olive oil
1 pinch off dried chili, crumbled
1 lemon, zest
parsley, finely chopped

MARINADE

1 cup white wine
1 cup olive oil
1 bunch basil, shredded
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, divided
salt and black pepper

artichokes cream

280 g of artichokes in marinade
150 g ricotta
1 small clove garlic
1 lemon, zest
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
olive oil
salt and pepper

Trim the pork tenderloin free from fat and cut away membranes. Mix all the marinade ingredients. Pour it in a sealed plastic bag and marinate the meat in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Dry the meat with paper towels.

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan, add the meat and fry it all around. Then put the meat in a baking dish, place in oven and roast the tenderloin for about 20 minutes. The meat is done when the temperature is 65-68 degrees and the meat is lightly pink inside. Or you can grill the pork fillet which I did. :)

Allow the meat to cool and cut it into very thin slices. Brush with olive oil, flavored with a pinch of dried chili. Serve the meat over tired with lemon zest and parsley.

Pour the marinade from the artichokes. Add all ingredients to the cream in a bowl and mix or run them in a food processor to a smooth cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Recipe from: Paolo Roberto
