Game Of Thrones – In The Kitchen

Inspired by the Official Game Of Thrones Cookbook, I had so much fun cooking up dinner for the season 5 premiere back in April.

I started with Sansa Salad with Edible Flowers

Fingerfish (aka cornmeal-fried sardines)

Chicken Thighs (instead of duck) with Cherry & Lemon Sauce

Strawberry Lemonsweet (I added vodka)

And of course Sansa Stark‘s favorite… Lemon Cakes! I made the candied lemon sauce via recipe but used store-bought cupcakes as the base.

For the season 5 finale this weekend I’ll be making the beef and bacon pie…. and dreaming of Jon Snow. Golly, I hope he makes it to season 6!!!

The Inn At The Crossroads (Official Game Of Thrones Food Blog) is full of recipe ideas and photos.

Low Carb Frico (Parmesan Crackers)

I’ve been cooking up lots of frico (parmesan crackers) lately. Mostly to top salads, but I also use them on soups and simple snacking too. These frico with toasted seeds were a big hit at my dinner table recently. So easy to make and low carb too!
Frico (Parmesan Crackers) & Seeds

How to make Frico w Toasted Seeds

Clockwise (from top left):
1. Sprinkle seeds in heated non-stick pan.
2. Add shredded Parmesan (Manchego is lovely too) and make sure the seeds are covered with cheese bits. Use a spatula to make a tight circle.
3. When the edges turn brown, gently start lifting with a thin spatula.
4. Turn frico (use two spatulas if needed) and cook until browned underneath. Carefully transfer frico to plate and let cool to harden. Break into pieces for salad topping or just EAT as is.

This works with pieces of herbs or leafy greens too. Frico with toasted baby kale here.

I post low carb recipes on instagram regularly. Follow me @MyLastBite or search #LowCarbJo.
