(Posted this past Saturday at allrecipes.com during & after our little throwdown)
Ladies & Gentlemen ! Boys & Girls ! Diners of all ages ! Step right up for the Culinary Grudge Match of the Ages ! Live from own Kitchen Stadium it is Iron Master Chef (Me) vs The CHOPPED Sisters (them). It’s a CHOPPED/Mystery Box Iron Chef Throwdown. We are being given just 60 minutes to create as many dishes as possible using only the ingredients on the countertop.
And those ingredients are: Broccolini, Butter, Lobster Tails, Avocado, Wild Huckleberry Chocolate, Idaho Potatoes, Mango Salsa, Jalapenos, Lemon, Tomatoes, Salmon, Red Sea Salt, Salt & Pepper, Honey Wine Vinegar, Onion, Ground Turkey, Olive Oil, Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar, Frozen Sweet Potato Fries & Watermelon.
The ovens are on. The grill is going. The water is boiling. The Clock is starting…..
The 60 minutes FLEW BY…….So what did we wind up with ?
The CHOPPED Sisters made Oven Roasted Salmon with a Mango Watermelon Salsa, Turkey & Onion Meatballs with Mixed Potato Home Fries and Lemon Poached Lobster Tail with Grilled Tomatoes, Sauteed Broccolini & Avocado Mousse.
Iron Master Chef made Oven Roasted Salmon with a Spicy Sweet Warm Watermelon Tomato Dressing, Turkey Mango Avocado Burgers with a Faux Guac, Sauteed Lemon Butter Broccolini with Lobster Bits and Honey Vinegar Sweet Potato Bake.
(Nobody was brave enough to try to work in the Wild Huckleberry Chocolate – look for it again next time)
The judges tasted. The judges conferred. The judges debated. The judges wimped out.
They called it a tie.
No wonder we let Mommy clean up…….
Come back next time when Iron Master Chef schools The CHOPPED Sisters again.
