This Little Piggie Cooks

Piggie took a break from Candy Crush Saga and decided to fatten up for an upcoming trip to St. Tropez. Everyone knows being plump is the only way to exude extreme wealth and stature.

Piggie happened to have jumbo lump crab meat and fresh wild pacific salmon sitting in the fridge. Twas perfect for a very light two course seafood dinner!

First course was crab avocat…The Lawyer Crab! But because Piggie is a genius creative amateur chef and so clever with matching up exotic flavors, the lawyer crab was amazing. Avocados on the bottom with crab, lemon zest, chives and easter radishes and obvi mayo and the green moat is a pea puree with tarragon. Piggie almost died. It was so good.


Second course was salmon. Piggie never cooks fish at home because it smells. But it had to be done. Can’t let a beautiful persimmon colored wild pacific salmon go bad. Piggie got fancy…orange butter, easter radishes, morels and also a quick savoy cabbage and bacon slaw. Oh yes…and peas…carrying over some ingredients from the first course to keep the flavors consistent and reduce waste because Piggie is all about sustainability and stuff.


This was pretty much another amazing dinner and am so happy Piggie was able to eat it alone without sharing. Because let’s be honest…great things should never be shared and enjoyed alone so you can brag and make everyone jealous.

Piggie didn’t order from seamless but the intercom rang…WEIRD…there was a bike messenger delivering raw steak??? WEIRDER. He delivered the package to piggies lair and it was in a brown lunch bag and mushy. STILL WEIRD. But the package had piggies name on it and it was not only steak but there was also bacon! AWESOME! Delivery boyee said it was coming from Schatzies Butcher shop. AWESOME! Piggie asked Schatzies who ordered it…For all I know it could have been one of piggies frenemies trying to poison her because they’re jealous of piggies eating abilities. But they said it was some dood from Singapore. AWESOME! Piggie didn’t want to open the packaging quite yet, so felt it up a little and could immedes tell with her delicate little genius hands that it was a prime ribeye, just over an inch thick. AWESOMER!

Raw Meat

Bacon was thick cut! AWESOME!!! Piggie whipped up a quick dinner of perfect medium rare steak with anchovie gremolata. Close up visual below…big picture necessary!



This little piggie is a city pig so no grill in the apt…hence used a skillet on a stove on medium high heat…3 minutes on each side and everything was just so perfect.
