Good salad to precede clam linguine

We went with shaved fennel and blood oranges over arugula. For the dressing, we used some of the blood orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, pink sea salt and pepper. I'm including a photo. This was everyone's first time trying the fennel and it was a hit. Thanks all for the recommendations!

Good salad to precede clam linguine

Thanks all! The spinach salad I had in mind, because the original entree was grilled steak and was told of the menu change yesterday and for the life of me, I've never had a clam linguine. I think I'll go with fennel and arugula, parm and the light olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper recommendation :)

Good salad to precede clam linguine

My boyfriend and I are going to have dinner w/ the boss and I've volunteered to bring a salad. He is making a linguine with clams and I want to bring a salad that would compliment the dish. I was thinking of something along the lines of a spinach salad with some kind of fruit, walnuts, blue cheese and a nice vinaigrette... any ideas?

Crabs!

Buddy of mine had a brilliant idea of doing a crab cook-off. Where can I find large amounts of blue crab for purchase? We're thinking 3-4 crabs per person, so at least 60 fresh and alive blue crabs. Any ideas?

Korean BBQ in DFW

Do your own Korean BBQ at home! It's fun, delicious and way less expensive. Just buy different cuts of meat and get the marinades for KoMart in Irving or H Mart near Omi. They sell frozen short ribs for a reasonable deal. Defrost the meat and marinate overnight or for at least four hours. I also include shrimp and pork belly. Lay out a tray of rinsed and prepared veggies: zucchini, baby bok choy, onions, and mushrooms. Get out an electric griddle, coat it with a little bit of olive oil and cook it all right there in your dining room!

I did this a couple of weeks ago and it was a big hit!

Lamb Navarin

I watched Jacques Pepin create some delicious looking Lamb Navarin yesterday on KERA. Now that I'm done drooling, I want to make some. It looks easy enough but where can I find bone-in lamb breast? Central Market? Whole Foods?

What do you do with Spam?

spam tacos: chop it up, mix it with some eggs, canned diced tomatoes, a little bit of milk and cheddar cheese... scramble it all together and fill em in heated corn tortillas.

noodle soup: boil up some macaroni until al dente, strain. meanwhile, combine 2 parts chicken broth with 1 part water, add some chopped carrots, onions, tomatoes, bring to a boil and simmer until the carrots are tender. chop up some spam, fry until done, set aside. fry an egg over-medium. put some of the macaroni in a soup bowl, ladle the broth over it, top with some chopped spam and your egg. tada... breakfast soup. (sometimes eat for lunch or dinner too).
