What to do with fresh Hearts of Palm?
I received 1/2 lb of fresh hearts of palm and haven't any idea what to do with it. I tried it grilled with local butter and it was delicious but . . . I don't have a grill :(
slice it into a salad (or have it as a salad all by itself)
or send it my way -- I'll see if I can find a way to get rid of it for you. :)
Sauteed with onions, garlic, shrimp and just a tiny bit of pork for flavor, they make a terrific filling for fresh spring rolls. Googling lumpiang ubod will give you plenty of ideas. Try substituting them for water chestnuts in a stir fry. You could bread them and create a substitute for french fries and dip them in a spicy mayo. They're also surprisingly good with cheese either in a salad or a gratin.
I'm jealous. Things I'd try with fresh ones:
Core and fill, sort of like California rolls. The light crunch would be awesome with a braised meat.
Another variation of the vehicle would be to just slice diagonally and top it off as an appetizer.
