Read More Moroccan Chicken with Pomegranate Yogurt Dip & Rice

Theme Pomegranate…Moroccan Style

A few weeks ago what we thought to be a really tall, non-fragrant, honeysuckle tree turned out to be pomegranates!  I was elated!  Today I was all over the internet in search of a recipe for pomegranates; at the same token, I had a craving for a Moroccan style cuisine.  So putting two and two together, I came up with a great dinner plan for the family.

Smooth Chicken Liver Pâté and Potted Shrimp

This is a rich, smooth, spreadable pâté, ideally using fresh, organic chicken livers.  Goes great with crunchy toasts!  Sealing the surface with a slick of clarified butter (see below), or with jellied stock helps to preserve the pâté’s pink tinge and basically stops it from graying.

Aside from the chicken liver pâté, I also experimented with making potted shrimp since I had a few cooked shrimp left over from making Pancit (rice noodles) just a few days ago.
