Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp

Shrimp is one of my favorite things to make in the summertime. It cooks up quickly, and it’s great on the grill. This grilled tequila lime shrimp is tangy, flavorful and delicious, and best of all, it’s ready in about 15 minutes. All you need is garlic, limes, tequila, fresh cilantro (or parsley, if you prefer), olive...

Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

I’m trying to lighten up our dinners after a few weeks of heavy eating… not to mention Halloween thrown in there for good measure! I found these photos I took back in the summer of a delicious dish I made with zucchini noodles topped with sautéed shrimp. I’m definitely adding this to my meal plan...

Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa… OH SO YUM!

I made this Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa for dinner the other night and it was a hit. Such a nice, light dinner for a summer evening! To make the salsa, I diced a mango, half a red onion, half a red pepper and minced some cilantro. I tossed it in lime juice and salt and...

Rockfish with Lemon Butter & Sage

One of my new favorite fishes is rockfish. It’s a nice, mild white fish that is just dense enough to hold up to the broiler without falling apart. I try to stay away from tilapia and other farmed fishes, so wild caught rockfish is a great alternative. I discovered rockfish when shopping for salmon at...

Shrimp & Grits over Sautéed Chard

We take this traditional Southern dish and turn it up a notch with bacon. Serve it over Swiss chard to make a nutritious and impressive meal for company or for a weeknight family dinner. I love shrimp and grits but I’ve never attempted to make it before. This recipe looked easy enough, and it was. My...

Fancy Tuna Salad Recipe

I’ve long been a fan of tuna salad, but my usual “recipe” consists of just canned tuna and mayo. That’s how my mom always made it, and it’s how my kids like it, so usually I don’t bother to do much else. But I love going to a nice restaurant for lunch and ordering a...

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

I had some mahi mahi from Trader Joe’s in my freezer and decided to try something new. I went online and discovered this recipe for ginger glazed mahi mahi and decided it was exactly what the doctor ordered! It’s super easy to put together and only requires 20-30 minutes of marinating. Then you just return...

Grilled Marinated Shrimp & Zucchini Noodles

One of our favorite treats in this house is shrimp. It is the one thing that I know will be a hit every time with all five of us. I often make Linguine with Shrimp Scampi but I decided to lighten it up a bit and grill it this time. Of course, grilling requires a...

Tilapia Parmesan Recipe

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I found on AllRecipes.com for Broiled Tilapia Parmesan, but rather than broil I like to bake it. I’ve done it both ways and it probably doesn’t make much difference in the end, but it’s easier to pop it in the oven, set the timer, and forgetaboutit. I mixed...

Monkfish Provincial Recipe

We love fish in our house, but often the price tag prevents us from eating it more often.  A few weeks ago I went to Wegmans to see what they had for wild caught fish.  I looked longingly at the Alaskan salmon (for $24 a pound!!!) and eventually settled upon four filets of monkfish.  Nevermind...

Lobster Corn Chowder

I figured my last post was long enough without the details of the chowder making, but for those of you who may be interested in trying it, and because I went to the trouble of taking pictures of the process, here it is. NOTE:  Please do yourself a favor and call ahead to your favorite...

Baked Salmon

When my new oven arrived last Thursday, I knew that I wouldn’t mind heating up the kitchen to make dinner. I had a gorgeous piece of fresh salmon just waiting to be baked. With a recipe I found on AllRecipes.com called Alternative Salmon, I set out to give my new stove a whirl. First I...
