This week on French Fridays with Dorie is tuna and mango ceviche (page 178). I have mentioned before that I don’t like tuna that does not come out of a can and I also don’t like raw fish or meat. My husband dislikes mangoes and avocados so this recipe just wasn’t going to fly in my house. I still wanted to participate this week so I did a make-up.
So my edict for this week is that all meals needed to be made on the BBQ. We are having a heat wave in California and I refused to turn on the oven. We decided on cafe salle pleyel hamburger (page 240) as our French Friday make-up.
The onion marmalade was delicious. I have caramelized onions many times but never this technique of cooking it with water. These onions will also go on hot dogs planned later for this week.
This hamburger got thumbs up from the crowd. I served it with a nice cold salad with heirloom tomatoes that one of my guests brought. A delicious meal.
