Rescupie of the week!!

The Lobster Stack!
I like experimenting with different textures!
Enjoy this eye and belly pleasing stack!

Sauteed shallot, garlic, lemon pepper spinach layered on fire roasted bourbon Smoked tomatoes and peppers topped with Lobster meat and feta cheese!
This turned out great!

Don't forget to strain the juice from the vegetables before trying to stack!

16 oz package Fresh baby spinach.
2 cloves garlic minced
1tbs. Olive oil
2 shallots diced
1medium lemon
1 tsp. cracked pepper
3 cups tomatoes diced
(you can buy fire roasted tomatoes in the store or get whole tomatoes and follow recipe below)
1 tbs. Bourbon Smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. Roasted cumin
Salt and pepper to taste.
3" metal ring (used to stack)
3 oz Lobster meat (or shrimp)
Feta cheese.


Mix cumin and paprika in bowl, set aside.

Fire roasted tomatoes:
Slice the tomatoes in half lengthwise brush the cut sides with olive oil.
Place the tomatoes cut side down over a medium flame on a gas grill. If using a charcoal grill, place the tomatoes in the middle of the grill over briquettes that are medium-hot.

If you don't have acess to grill, you can also place tomatoes on cookie sheet inside oven and broil for 3-5 mins or until desired skin texture.
When the tomatoes develop dark char marks (about 5 to 8 minutes depending on size and heat of grill). Continue cooking until the skins begin to blacken in spots. Then, remove the tomatoes from the grill, pile them in a bowl, tightly cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off the blackened skins and dice the flesh, making sure to reserve the juices.
Use immediately by adding spice Mix, let set for at least 10 mins. drain excess juices with strainer, set aside.

Sauté garlic and shallots in olive oil coated pan until onions are translucent (over medium heat) do not let the garlic burn!
Add spinach and cook until withered (about 8 mins) add seasonings to taste, drain and set aside.

Using metal ring, stack spinach, tomatoes in layers ending with spinach on top.
Top with feta cheese and lobster!
Enjoy and follow @Rescupies

(Short for Rescue Recipes).. dishes to save your night!

It's finally here!!

My name is Kenyatta Smith a career firefighter-paramedic for the city of Cincinnati Ohio and a published cook.
In the firehouse culture, life evolves around the kitchen and mainly the cook.
Sharing cross cultural meals on a daily basis brings harmony in our chaotic world.

Rescupies is the perfect destination for every occasion! Try the delicious "Spring to it Chicken" for your next night in, the        "Rosemary Lamb Chops" as an intimate dinner for two and the "Monterey Chicken Chili" for a large group celebration.
In this first series of Rescupie cards you will find a collection of recipes that will save your palates from ordinary taste and give it the much needed jaws of life!

My inspiration for cooking comes from watching my family challenge each other with creative dishes, in keeping up with that tradition, I challenge myself by creating new twists on traditional meals and experimenting on my fellow co workers who have become my ultimate food critics (if you cook a bad meal in the firehouse you will hear about it until the day you retire).
This card series is dedicated to the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and to my mother the late
Gwendolyn Ann Smith-Turner.

These meal cards are a sweet treat to rescue you from the boredom of the traditional meal,
I hope these Rescupies will inspire you & save your night!
