My '2012 Alumafandango Aluminum Chef' recipes

Last week I participated in the "Aluminum Chef" competition at Alumafandango. The challenge was to take 5 ingredients and make something yummy out of them in your Airstream kitchen. For the first round, the ingredients were: Coconut, Bananas, Limes, Chocolate & Chili. I made Banana Coconut Lime Ice Cream w/Chocolate Chili Lime Sauce and moved on to the second round.

Banana Coconut Lime Ice Cream

2 14 oz. can of coconut milk
2 can of sweetened condensed milk
4 cups of whipping cream
2 cup milk
4 eggs
2 cup sugar
2 lime-juice and zest
4 ripe mashed bananas
1 pkg coconut – toasted & cooled (reserve some for topping)
ice cream machine
ice
rock salt

In large bowl, beat the eggs on high-speed until light yellow then slowly add sugar and beat well. On medium speed slowly add cream and milks beating well. Last beat in bananas, toasted coconut, lime juice and zest. Spin using a 6qt Ice cream maker for 45-60 minutes following machine’s instructions. Serves a whole bunch - perfect for a rally!!!

Chocolate Chili Lime Sauce

8 oz dark chocolate, roughly chopped (not baking chocolate)
4TBLS heavy cream
2 TBLS butter
2-1/2 teaspoon chili powder (Ancho)
2 lime-juice and zest

In a heat-proof mixing bowl, add the chocolate, cream, and butter. Place over a smaller pot of simmering water. Be sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in the chili powder and mix until fully incorporated.

Drizzle chocolate sauce over ice cream, top with reserved coconut.

During the second round, the ingredients got tougher. They were: Tamari Soy Sauce, Avocado, Corn on the Cob, Ginger & Walnuts.


Alumafandango Teriyaki Shrimp Cocktail

Step one: Marinate Shrimp
2TBS Soy Sauce
¼ teas grated Ginger
1/8 teas grated Garlic
1LB large Shrimp, uncooked, peeled & deveined w/tails on.

Marinate for 30-60 minutes. Place 12 shrimp on 4 wooden skewers, keep the rest loose. Grill until cooked through. Chill skewers & loose shrimp.

Step two: Asian Guacamole
2 large Avacodos – ripe but not soft
2 Limes – juice & zest, reserve 2 slices cut in half for garnish
1 teas Rice Vinegar – or more to taste
¼ teas grated Ginger
¼ teas grated Garlic
Dash of Red Pepper Flakes
2 TBS Bottled Teriyaki Sauce – I use Yoshida’s from CostCO
1 teas Soy Sauce
2 small ears of Sweet Corn – out of husks
¼ red Bell Pepper – red part only, diced to ¼”
1-½ TBS Green Onion – mostly green part, sliced thinly
Cooked, loose shrimp from above – cut into ½” pieces

Dice avocado to ½ “ cubes. Add lime juice & zest from 1-½ limes to avocado cubes to keep from turning brown. Add vinegar, ginger, garlic, pepper flakes & soy sauce. Grill corn until lightly browned. Very lightly glaze corn with teriyaki sauce just long enough to caramelize but not burn. Add remaining teriyaki sauce to Avocado/Lime mixture. Cool corn, then cut from cob. Add to avocado mixture along with red bell pepper, green onions & diced shrimp. Toss lightly, chill for at least an hour or more.

Step three: Walnut Topping
1 oz. Walnut – ¼” pieces
1 teas Teriyaki Sauce
1 teas sugar

Toast walnuts on stove. Add sugar & teriyaki sauce to caramelize but not burn. Cool.

Divide the avocado mixture between 4 martini glasses – preferably “silver”. Add walnut topping, shrimp skewers & lime slices. Serve & enjoy!

Would LOVE to have copies of the other participant's recipes...the competition was great - lots of great dishes & creative cooks! I was amazed how we all had the same ingredients, but our dishes were all so different! Lots of fun!

Congratulations! Those look so very tasty! I just learned something too... I thought when you were given specific ingredients to use - that was ALL you were able to use... boy, am I glad that was not the case.

Great job!! Thanks for sharing your recipes.

Both were yummy, presented beautifully and deserved to win.

I participated, as well. I can't really offer the recipes since I mostly cook off the cuff. It works for me because I open the 'fridge and decide what to make.

1st round I made a chocolate and coconut milk mole (onions, garlic, green chilies, coconut milk, bakers chocolate, hot peppers, lime juice to finish, probably something else) cooked for an hour or so and the blended w/my wandi thing John Barlow gave me last year for Christmas, small and great for the small kitchen.
Then I made a banana and coconut wonton, sautéed in butter (something that was a splurge since I really don't eat much butter) and added a little lime rind to the wontons. I served it w/the mole on top and some crumble cheese on top.

2nd round was a toss up between a salad or a Pad Thai. The 'fridge and cabinet had what I needed, along w/the 5 new ingredients, for the Pad Thai. I baked some tofu that I marinated in the soy, toasted the walnuts on the stove, grilled the ear of corn on the "open grill". The next day, I made the noodles and added the corn, walnuts, tofu and some mushrooms and onions. I sliced the avocado on top.

Since I don't eat meat, my cooking leans toward mostly veggie stuff.

Congratulations! Love your presentation.

What a great activity idea for a rally! Would be great if all the participants could put a cookbook together.

Everyone's dishes sound great! I would love to partake in something like that but would probably bomb out on the first round. I love to watch Top chef, so it would be a blast to actually do something like that.
