Fresh Orange Juice

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
The trick of Orange Juice is to use Valencia Oranges...Navel oranges just don't work for juice...don't worry about how they look...some can look terrible but they taste wonderful...Valencias are also called "juice oranges"...I get about 1/2cup juice out of 2 'regular' sized Valencias...I get about 1 cup of juice out of 3 large ones. I use an electric juicer...but if you don't have one...you can juice any citrus with a fork: cut the fruit in half...use a knife to take out any seeds...Stick the fork into it and 'ream' it around to extract the juice, squeezing the fruit against the fork...you can also move the fork around...using a fork you will get more pulp out of the fruit...it's usually easy to 'fish out' any stray seeds...usually you won't have any seeds in limes. Strain it if you don't want the pulp...that will also get rid of any seeds...but I always use it and never strain it. Using a fork will also yield more juice - probably because of the extra pulp. For any citrus fruit...the heavier the fruit...the more the juice...and the thinner the skin...the better it is...

Campbell's® Healthy Request® Cajun Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I had some really nasty freezer-burnt pollack in my freezer and was looking for a recipe that 'rescue' it...or at least make it edible...and this was the one. I didn't have condensed tomato soup so I used Wolfgang Puck's Organic Tomato soup and skipped the water. My fish was really bad news so I cooked it twice as long, and since I was usually regular soup instead of condensed and all the fish was submerged, I cooked it uncovered for the rest of the time. Didn't have cayenne so I used red pepper flakes. Also tossed in a bay leaf. Served it with a mountain of brown rice in the middle of the dish with the fish in a 'moat' surrounding it. Was really great, especially considering the poor quality of fish I was using. I'm not a big fan of cooked green peppers but in this dish they were wonderful. This would also be a good recipe for shrimp or a medley of fish. I thought that it would need onions, but it didn't. Making it with regular soup instead of condensed gave me more of a 'fish stew' consistency, but that was really nice for the rice too.
