It's no secret - I LOVE shrimp. Seriously one of my favorite foods. I like it grilled, roasted, cold with cocktail sauce, fried, in pasta...I could go on and on...but I'll stop so I don't end up sounding like Bubba Gump. I stumbled upon this tasty shrimp recipe a few years ago. I've prepared it roasted in the oven and on the grill. Both are delicious. Prepared roasted the flavors are rich, and grilled the flavors are fresh. Pictured here I have grilled it. I prefer grilling in the . . .
Boy do I have a yummy and easy dinner for you! Many years ago my husband and I took a weekend trip to Seattle. One of the first places we visited was Pike Place Market downtown. We loved wandering thru the beautiful flowers and fresh produce. And we were so amazed by the Famous Pike Place Fish Co. This fish company is famous for throwing their fish from one worker to the other when they get a sale. There are motivational videos and documentaries about the culture of this company that are . . .
The other day I was teaching Des all about 'y'all'. It's a common misconception that it's spelled 'ya'll'. No. It's a contraction between 'you' and 'all'. Actually, more like 'ya' and 'all'. So you chop off the rest of 'ya', leaving you contracting 'y' and 'all', THUS producing the end product, 'y'all'. Then we went on to discuss 'all y'all', or sometimes 'all uh y'all', and how that's used to describe a large group of people, like more than three. Her: "Whaaaa? Do they teach you that in . . .
Give me all the roasted veggies. Roast anything and I can guarantee you it'll be 5,000 times better. I reeeeeally wish I had learned the art of roasting a long time ago, it would have saved me (and my people) a lot of boiled, frozen lima bean medleys. Blech. Blackening your salmon takes away a lot of the salmon, fishy taste that many of us don't love. And it doesn't add a lot of fat! That's been another favorite, adding flavor with herbs and lemons and garlic and onions and all . . .
When I think of a shrimp boil I envision long picnic tables lined with newspapers and huge pots of boiling water surrounded my lots of family and friends. A seafood boil is a tradition that started in Louisiana and has spread throughout the south. Shrimp Boils for a Week Night Dinner I'm a shrimp lover, so I was instantly drawn to this tradition, but I wanted to do it on a smaller scale for my family. So I came up with the idea to load up some foil packs and grill them. The result . . .
Several weeks ago I stumbled upon a picture of strawberry mango pico. I think I drooled. I thought about it for days and days and then finally did something about it. We were spending Easter at home, so I decided to go the non-traditional route and make fish for dinner. It was a light, flavorful change to the usual heavy Easter dinner. I topped my fish with a fresh, bright, and healthy strawberry mango pico. I picked Des's brain for the pico ingredients. Together we decided that . . .
I've had this recipe rolling around in my head for a while. About a year ago my family and I moved from southern California to Nevada. Who's with me when I say that socal has THE BEST Mexican food? Especially Baja Mexican food! So, with that being said - I have majorly been craving a good Baja fish taco! Tilapia is a really mild fish. For those of you who don't care for seafood - this is a stepping stone fish. It isn't very strong and it can easily be flavored to taste however you . . .
I am so excited to share this recipe with you today. It is so crazy good. I love seafood and citrus together - so this salad is a match made in heaven. If you don't like seafood - you should! I'm kidding. Kind of. There are so many lovely citrus varieties now-a-days. You can really use whatever citrus you like, but for this salad I used a naval orange, a blood orange, and a red grapefruit. I made a simple baked salmon seasoned only with salt and pepper, and a sweet citrus honey . . .
Each Valentine's Day my husband and I skip the restaurant scene and eat in. We always make something a little extra special and toast with a glass of Martinellis. We love seafood, and I love that it is a fast healthy meal! This honey lime glazed salmon will be the perfect addition to your Valentine's night in. Or for a fast weeknight meal. The glaze is a simple honey, soy sauce, lime combo that you can whip up in minutes. You'll have dinner on the table is under 35 . . .
hi. I'm des. and I am scared of clams. I'm probably almost an ostraconophobia. yup thats a real word.... Ostraconophobia are people afraid of shell fish. Oysters, crab, lobster, shrimp, CLAMS. (but I'm not tooo scared of crab and shrimp.) I hate admiting that, I feel like it makes me seem weak. Shouldn't a foodie person like all food, and be fearless in the kitchen?! WELLLLL clams just ain't one of those foods I have ever really tried, therefore I'm scared of their little slimy selves. . . .
