Les poissons, les poissons! How I love les poissons. Love to chop and to serve little fish. First I cut off their heads, then I pull out their bones. Ah mais oui, ca c’est toujours délice.

Little Mermaid is one of the Disney all-time greats. It has some great food too if you’re a seafood lover. So become a nasty fish-killer and check out all the food from Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

 

Shrimp

To establish Ursula’s evilness, the first shot of her shows her eating live shrimp.

We weren’t brave enough to pop a live shrimp in our mouths, but we tried to keep them as untouched as possible.

Sebastian’s Crab Meat

For a French cook that is employed by royalty, I really question his cooking methods. Maybe there’s something I don’t know and if anyone has more info on his cooking style, let me know.  But when the chef finds Sebastian, he throws Sebastian in a sauce and then flour,

as if he was preparing to fry him. It is like he’s breading him for frying or baking in the oven. But instead, he stuffs him

and he throws Sebastian in a pot of boiling water, where the flour and sauce would just come off.

So we followed the same pathway as Sebastian did.

Les Poissons

So les poissons is french for the fishes.  The chef during his ear-worm song, makes some yummy fish appetizers.

Baguettes and Wedding Cake

We have made baguettes and wedding cake before, as it was shown on Little Mermaid. So for those recipes, check out Pinocchio for the baguette and Lady and the Tramp for the Wedding Cake. 

 


Will it Make you use a Dinglehopper?

Sadly, we don’t really love shellfish and crustaceans except for shrimp. So we weren’t too crazy about the crab. But crab lovers will hopefully love it., The shrimp was good and the fish was great.

Shrimp – 7/10, ****tail sauce – 5/10

Robin Hood – Little John Stew, Blackberry Pie, Currant Pie, Gruel

Robin Hood and Little John chilling in the kitchen, breakin’ eggs, stewin’ beef and eatin’ the day away. This is one of my wife’s favorite Disney movies. Mostly because she thinks Robin is a “fox”.
It is a really good, classic Disney movie with some good food to boot!
