Lobster Flatbread with Artichokes

Lobster Flatbread with Artichokes

Two posted recipes in one week?! Am I slowly getting back to normal? No promises yet, but I’m definitely trying my best to keep in touch with you guys more often. Like I said on Wednesday, some settling-into-the-new-job pains have subsided and I’m slowly getting used to the schedule. It’s an adjustment and I’m still tired...
Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Roasted Red Pepper Basil Sauce

Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Roasted Red Pepper Basil Sauce

So apparently mahi mahi is the “poor man’s” lobster…at least that’s what my dad says every time I order off a menu or make it at home. I think someone at a restaurant in Hawaii said that line to him 20 or 30 years ago, and since Hawaii is a haven for seafood, he took...
Crab Pot Pie

Crab Pot Pie

Sorry for my mini blogging hiatus this past week (does a week even count as a hiatus?); I went on vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC for a couple days. Seems like it would be a great place to unwind, but it was a weird trip. The perfect word for it would be “slow”. Or maybe...
Indian Spiced Baked Tilapia

Indian Spiced Baked Tilapia

Okay, so no idea if they even make tilapia in India…but I have SO many spices from an Indian market that I’ve been cooking with them a lot lately. Tilapia is a very mild fish, so it is a great protein to use with spice rubs. In this particular rub you have garam masala, which...
Blackened Tilapia

Blackened Tilapia

My first introduction to the delicious world of blackened goodness was through fish. Growing up I hated all kinds of seafood, but for some reason I didn’t mind it when covered in smoky and spicy blackened seasoning. This recipe is really easy to make, with only a few ingredients. You can use my delicious blackened...
Spring Tuna in Lettuce Cups

Spring Tuna in Lettuce Cups

We’re all trying to eat healthier in our day to day lives. Something I started doing years ago was to use lettuce instead of bread (read about it in a Suzanne Somers book haha). Since then, it’s become a pretty popular trend with lettuce wraps even popping up in restaurants (ie PF Changs). Because lettuce...
Caribbean Tomato Mango Tilapia

Caribbean Tomato Mango Tilapia

Tilapia is a really versatile fish that holds up great to marinades. In this recipe, I combine sweet diced mangos with the filets in a spice-citrus rub. The diced fruit becomes slightly spicy but still really fresh tasting…I love how it holds up during the cooking process. Just to make sure that this dish is...
Honey Mustard Salmon

Honey Mustard Salmon

Salmon is such a delicious fish…and I’ve been on a mustard binge lately, so I thought I’d introduce everyone to my honey mustard salmon! My mom calls this recipes one of her favorite ways that I prepare salmon. I really love how the fish absorbs the flavors in the marinade. The mustard provides a slight...
Trout and Veggies in Foil

Trout and Veggies in Foil

I started doing foil packets on the grill (so I wouldn’t have to clean it haha), but then decided it was perfect for the oven too! Literally any fish and veggie combo works, the one I have listed includes the ingredients I use most. I like using a lot of capers. Citrus works great too!...
Broiled Salmon Kabobs

Broiled Salmon Kabobs

It’s not grilling weather in my neck of the woods just yet, but I really wanted a summertime of meal. So, I decided to broil a kabob instead of grilling it. It doesn’t get a smoky taste from the grill, but the honey in the marinade caramelizes under the broiler while the mustard remains tangy…...
Sesame Crusted Honey Soy Salmon

Sesame Crusted Honey Soy Salmon

Salmon is incredibly healthy, and it holds up to marinades really nicely. I use a simple marinade of mainly honey and soy sauce, with a touch of ginger. When cooked, the marinade is subtle; it allows the flavor of salmon to shine (after all, you just spent good money to get nice filets…you don’t want...
Shrimp Orzo

Shrimp Orzo

My family loves shrimp…seriously love those little buggers! Every so often I like to make a fun and easy  recipe with shrimp, this time with garlic and butter! Shrimp are so quick to cook that it’s a perfect protein to make during the week. Buy them already shelled and deveined to decrease prep time. Slightly...
