This one has a bit of an odd story behind it. My birthday was a few weeks ago, and I decided to head to Gadgetzan in Tanaris as part of the celebrations. While there, I came decided to wander through a few shops. I came across a very nice Goblin and we got to chatting. He was very interested in my little project here, and asked to sponsor it. I told him I wasn’t really comfortable without knowing his products a bit better so he gave me a free sample.
After the exchange (there were the usual customs fees, brokerage fees, a currency exchange fee to move from Stormwind gold to Bilgewater gold, and of course, a small fee for mismatched coins, as I had a few Ironforge coins mixed in) I was given a rather interesting can of Duskwood Style Dusky Crab Lumps, courtesy of Kwality Katch.
Kwality Katch! It says ‘Kwality’ right in the name
So with sides that are so good they’re meals on their own, what do we do to make sure that they don’t completely steal the spotlight?

Sweet Green Thrall at the Maelstrom. This… This.
Full disclosure – this recipe was time consuming but it was absolutely worth it. I mean it, this is one that you really can’t miss. It was worth every bit of effort. It was time consuming, but it was not hard. Let me remind you as to what I’m all about. I am a relative cooking noob. I am learning as I go, and a big part of that is not being afraid of the kitchen. This recipe calls for three things I’d never done before: parboiling (which is essentially boiling something until just where you want it, then shocking it so that it stops cooking instantly), deep frying, and flambé-ing.
None of this was hard or scary, and I’m going to show you how to do it without it being hard or scary either. This recipe is from scratch. And when I say ‘from scratch’ I mean FROM. SCRATCH.
I did it. So can you.

“– Is back! Pryn is back! Pryn –”
Frantic panting, noises of excitement that don’t form any coherent words. “Pryn’s back — it was — oh man — oh man!
I gotta — I gotta calm down. Gotta breathe.”
