Hello and welcome! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday. We are kicking off a week of Top 5 Recipes with today’s round up of the Top 5 Sunday Supper Recipes of 2022. 2022 was a big year for Djalali Cooks, as readership and traffic to the blog has grown. My Sunday Supper series features one pan, one pot, easy recipes to end your weekend and start your week. Sometimes Sunday Supper meals are quick, one-and-done recipes, and sometimes I feature a recipe that is more of a Sunday Cooking project; a recipe that is more involved in terms of time and effort, but is just as easy. Let’s right to your Top 5 Sunday Supper Recipes of 2022!
Cioppino, San Francisco Fisherman’s Stew
Today we have a beloved San Francisco dish. Invented in the late 1800’s by the Italian fishermen of San Francisco’s North Beach. Cioppino is a healthy, hearty tomato-based seafood stew that contained the leftover seafood from the day’s catch. So you can get creative with your favorite seafood and shellfish. I have a seafood blend from Trader Joe’s with scallops, shrimp and calamari. Also, I have some wild caught Alaska cod and Bar Harbor canned clams.
Herby Chicken and Rice Salad
Last week we had a delicious Indian-inspired chicken and rice dish, and this week we have another chicken and rice recipe. Today, Herby Chicken and Rice Salad – a perfect summertime chicken and rice dish. We are using a store-bought rotisserie chicken, making this an easy, quick salad to throw together for a hot day’s dinner. Let’s get right to it!
The Greatest Meatball Sub
I am so excited for today’s recipe because this is literally The Greatest Meatball Sub I have ever had. Super flavorful meatballs, braised in a simple tomato sauce; nestled in cheesy, garlicky, toasted sub rolls. A savory olive relish tops the saucy meatballs for an explosion of rich, deep flavor. Hands down, this Meatball Sub is worth every minute and effort the recipe requires. These Meatball Subs do have a number of steps, but do not let that discourage you– each component is simple. Let’s get right to it!
Burma Superstar Coconut Chicken Curry
Alex and I independently loved the restaurant Burma Superstar, in San Francisco. We never went there together while we lived in California, but since moving to Athens, we have talked about how much we wish we had gone there before we left California. Eh, well… Fortunately, they have a cookbook! So today, we are making an adaptation of Burma Superstar Coconut Chicken Curry.
Chicken Noodle Soup
We are back in Athens and it’s nice to be home, but I will say that we are already missing Tybee. To soften the re-entry to the regular day-to-day, I think some Chicken Noodle Soup is in order. I asked Alex to smoke a chicken for this recipe and I am glad I did, because while I would have been happy with a store-bought rotisserie chicken, the smoked chicken really added a ton of amazing flavor. The other incredible flavor boost in this soup is dill. A lot of dill.
