Superbowl 49 – Seahawks vs New England Patriots.
We created a menu Frasier would serve – Spicy & Haute.
What would Frasier serve his father Martin and his buddies for the Superbowl game? The Pacific Northwest’s flavors and Pike’s Place fresh-caught fish would come into play. Frasier would elevate the standard playbook menu and serve an array of re-imagined dips, chips and spreads with internationally inspired seasonings and spices.
Chips in Salsa
Frasier would not resort to serving the standard go-to chips and salsa combination. He would give the combo a spicy spin with homemade salsa tossed into just-fried flavored tortilla chips and sprinkled with Mexican Cotija cheese.
Queso Fundido al Tequila
Frasier would add a dash of flare to the classic Queso Fundido cheesy dip with perhaps Tequila [Tequila is aged in white or French oak barrels].
Fraiser’s guacamole would be fresh-made in a volcanic-rock molcajete [mortar and pestle] served with hot corn tortilla chips and two kinds of salsa: tomatillo and fresh tomato.
Grilled Potato Chips With Chive Dip
Ordinary potato chips would not suffice the persnickety Frasier. He would make handmade potato chips, thin sliced on a mandolin with baby potatoes; Russian blues, reds and Yukon’s, baked and served with a creamy chive dip.
Artichoke Dip with Crispy Shallots
Taking things up a notch, Frasierâ€™s version of the classic artichoke dip would be simmered with garlic and wine, then blended with creme fraiche, Gruyre and Tabasco, baked with a panko topping and finished with crispy shallots on top.
Pimento Cheese Fries
Frasier would take his french fries over the top, by broiling them with a tequila-spiked pimento cheese topping.
A very decadent take on fries.
Gingery Cilantro Dip with Shrimp
Frasier would pick up fresh-caught shrimp from Pikes Place, jumbo even prawns served with a fresh dipping sauce of cilantro and ginger.
Warm Piquillo and Crab Dip
Keeping with the Pacific Northwest fresh seafood theme, fresh Crab is baked on top of piquillo peppers, until warm and melty.
Hot Ricotta Dip
To add to the cheesy dip repertoire, this dip blends ricotta and parmesan with a some red chili heat, then baked and served with artfully arranged red & green baby endive.
Toasted Pumpkin Seed Dip
Niles would rave over this YucatÃ¡n-style dip with purÃ©edÂ pumpkin seeds with roasted tomatoes, garlic and chiles.
Goat Cheese Edamame Dip with spiced Pepitas
The chipotles in the adobo sauce add heat and smokiness to the creamy dip. The spiced pepitas [roasted pumpkin seeds] scattered on top of the dip are great a snack on their own.
Smoked Mozzarella Spread with Flatbread Crackers
Frasier would whip up this smoked mozzarella spread in his Cuisinart and serve with savory flatbread crackers. A nice paring with beer, craft or not.
This palate pleasing spread of dips, chips, spreads and cheesy bakes could even impress Frasier’s curmudgeonly dad.
