Seven Deadly Sins
Ok, so I made this last week. It's basically a variation on stuffed tomatoes. I used whatever ingredients I could find already in my fridge/freezer so the ingredients guided this concept.
7 Cherry tomatoes (approximately golf ball sized)
16 oz can of diced tomatoes
Pork Tenderloin (2 inch piece)
1 large scallop
Marsala cooking wine
Using a paring knife, cut a hole in the top of the tomato where the stem enters to cut off a--sort of--lid. Scoop out the insides and discard. Repeat 7 times. Set these aside on a baking tray.
Fillings: (Arranged by sin so I don't have to explain the cooking).
Pride - tomato sauce with a sprinkle of parmesan.
Wrath - tomato sauce with a dash of cayenne and a couple of drops of habanero sauce.
Sloth - meatball
Gluttony - a couple of drops of marsala wine in the bottom, 2 anchovy fillets, a little feta cheese, 5 capers, a few pieces of shredded cheddar cheese, half of the pork tenderloin (seasoned)
Greed - 1/4 of an artichoke heart, sun-dried tomatoes, white truffle oil, half of the pork tenderloin (seasoned)
Lust - dipping sauce made from mayonnaise, dijon, and tomato sauce
Envy - scallop, two shrimp stacked on top
Ok, I should explain a couple of things:
1. I cooked the meatball, scallop, shrimp, and pork tenderloin before putting them in/on their respective sins.
2. Same with the tomato sauce (leftovers were used on a pasta dish later that day)
3. I baked these bad boys in a preheated oven for about 8 mins at 350 degrees.
4. The dipping sauce for lust was put in after the oven cooking.
