These are some of the more traditional Southern soul food dishes offered by Chef Marcus Samuelsson at Red Rooster Overtown, Miami.

Dark-meat-only fried chicken with sour orange spicy honey and pickles.

Corn bread cooked in cast iron with jalapeno butter.

Mac and cheese made with aged cheddar in cast iron.

Delicious!

Menu is in first comment!

Unusual flavor combinations, textures and ingredients made these two dishes shine at Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster in historic Overtown, Miami.

First: Charred suya octopus with black foie gras maafe sauce, hammock greens, root vegetables and foie gras. Suya is like a shish kebab in West Africa, usually a smoked, spiced meat skewer that originates in North Nigeria. The octopus was grilled. Maafe sauce is a take on peanut stew, a staple in West Africa.

The second offering is chicken-fried green tomatoes with lemon pepper jelly, and Overtown combac sauce topped with trout roe. I believe the “combac” sauce is a play on a classic Southern sauce called “come-back” sauce hailing from Jackson, Mississippi.

DAMN GOOD FOOD!

I was eager to try something different at Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster in Overtown, Miami. Though I was tempted to order the red shrimp and grits, I’m glad I picked something I had not had before. I was not disappointed!

I ordered the Prime Dawadawa steak, a Denver cut which is the same as “chuck under blade center steak” which was tender and marbled.

The dawadawa is fermented locust bean and a common condiment used in Nigeria and other West African countries. The steak was slathered in it and was very tangy. It was served with maitake mushrooms, hollandaise, and broccoli over a very delicate pureed celery root.

The steak was tender and delicious, everything complemented the steak.
The waiter even brought me extra celery root puree! YUMMM!

What did I do with my BIGASS margarita glass from the day before?

I used it to house a huge shrimp cocktail festooned with home-made mermen and mermaid picks! It was my contribution to friends hosting a last minute pool party yesterday!

Whew! Glad THAT’S out of the house! #ladivacucina #gigante #shrimpcocktail #mermaid #merman #festivefood #appetizerideas #margaritaglass #repurpose #summertimefood #poolparty #summerfun #onefortheboys #wheretheboysare

Kafta-inspired turkey burgers with lemon tahini yogurt dressing. Because it’s hot and time to lighten up! I seasoned them with ground cumin, coriander, cinnamon, salt, pepper, minced o lion, parsley and cilantro. Served them up over a mixed green salad with cucumbers, red onions and tomatoes! Flavorful and satisfying! #ladivacucina #lebanesefood #kafta #middleeasternfood #turkeyburger #groundturkey #spices #salad #summerdinners #tahinidressing

Spicy tomato sauce with Italian sausage, fresh peas, mushrooms, garlic and rosemary and birds eye chilies from my garden! Three tiny chilies made the sauce muy picante, so I tamed it with a bit of evaporated milk, which I had in the pantry! The bronze-cut radiatori pasta (Target Good and Gather Signature Brand!)has all the little grooves to catch the spicy sauce! Mangia!

Carne asada hash was on the menu this glorious Sunday morning! Potatoes, leftover steak, onions, fresh spinach and a lovely, piquant home made tomato salsa I made with the last of the jalapeños from my garden! Topped the hash with eggs and covered until just cooked! A hearty breakfast for a hardworking Husbear!

The scent wafting from my oven was amazing! I took my tiny cherry tomatoes from the garden and doused them with Dalmatian extra virgin olive oil, dollops of feta cheese, sea salt, freshly cracked black pepper, garlic, Kalamata olives and Greek oregano and roasted at high heat for 25 minutes. The oregano is full of flavor and was just delivered from my friend visiting from Greek! So pungent! Served with fresh baguette, it’s just heavenly! #ladivacucina #roastedtomatoes #greekoregano #supperforone #feta #gardenfresh #tomatoes #cherrytomatoes #simplesuppers #thesecretlifeoffoxes

Spicy veggie chickpea soup with ground turkey and brown rice. Was going to make Italian escarole soup with white beans and pancetta, but found I hadn’t any cannellini! Then I decided to use the rest of my Goya sofrito from the freezer. Then I did another 180 and decided to go with Penang curry, coriander, cumin and some chat masala! The amchoor (dried mango!) in the masala seasoning adds a sour note! After all that, I forgot to add the greens! Still very satisfying and delicious! Talk about international flava! Haha! Hope these seasonings pique your culinary curiosity! #ladivacucina #soup #easydinner #penangcurry #webothlikesoup #masala #asianspices #sofrito #goya #chickpeas #brownrice #comfortfood #dinner #soupfordinner

Eggs and potatoes are a favorite breakfast of mine! I used to have to parboil the potatoes to soften them and then fry them. That took at least 20 minutes. Now that I have a smart grill with an air fryer option, I can pull this breakfast together in 10 minutes! I sautéed mushrooms, a bit of ham and fresh spinach. I layered the veggie hash on the bottom, then potatoes and topped with a runny fried egg! Dee-lish! #sundaybreakfast #sundaybrunch #ladivacucina #breakfastideas #eggs #huevos #huevosfritos #veggiesforbreakfast #spinach #mushrooms #airfryer #ninjafoodirecipes #ninjafoodi
