Joe Gone Wild In the BB Kitchen

Joe really was in a creative and mood to cook yesterday!  It could also be because Joe is a have not this week.  Hunger, in the Big Brother house when your a have not, can get pretty intense, and uncomfortable. Slop was created by the producers as a food substitute and is not supposed to be a breeze for the house-guests. America’s choice for the have-nots’ this week is Cod and Candy Canes. As we talked about, the house guests got  all sorts of flavors of candy canes but only one choice in fish, and that is Cod.

Shane is sad he is on slop.. he’s starving and looses an average of 10 pounds in a week while on slop.

The BB kitchen is overrun with ants, and with Cooking!!!

Cod isn’t one of my personal  favorite fishes, but if I was that hungry or needed nutrition I’d use every creative bone in my body to get the job done!  A few things I’ve thought of making would be Cod Nuggets/fish-sticks, fish soup which could be milk based almost like a chowder, pan seared fish encrusted with slop and maybe even cod roll ups!!!

Joe’s slop burgers have gotten rave reviews, and even the have’s have tasted them and said they were pretty edible.  I have not seen Joe make these as of yet, but I am working on finding out just what is going into them.

Joe has said he would like to have his own cooking show on TV, and has been holding regular cooking sessions in the BB kitchen.  He said that the show would be all about cooking with what you have available and I encourage Joe and others to check out another one of my blogs on WordPress called “Cook Something From Nothing” which is pretty much the idea.  When Joe started his mock show, he had it all planned out and introduced us to his newest dish:

Homemade Cod Fillets w/ Salsa Sauce

Ingredients – 1 Step Salsa

Note:  Joe said the reason he could use the following ingredients is because they were “IN” the canned salsa that is on the approved Have not condiment list.  This was questioned, and BB told them they could in future only use the actual ingredient provided by BB and not re-create it with fresh ingredients.  (drats foiled again!)

  • Cherry Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • Whole Lime
  • Hot Sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sugar
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Avocado (Big Brother made him remove this before they ate it!)


Add all ingredients to blender, pulse slowly until blended to your desired consistency (about 8-10 pulses), set aside.

Ingredients – Cod Fillets

  • Cod Fillets
  • Olive Oil
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper


Prepare your cod fillets by coating them lightly in olive oil placing them on a baking sheet lined with Tin foil and sprinkling them with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Remove from oven, cover and let rest for about 5 min.

Plate fish and ladle sauce over the fish.

As for the cooking show, it was over as soon as the food was ready.  The have nots were ready to eat a good meal, but did complain a bit (well it was Brittney) that the fish had bones galore.  

Brittney.. Just shoot me, I’m so hungry!


Be sure to stay tuned to Slop Du Jour to keep up on What’s cookin’ in the BB house and see what the have nots are eating!
