Steamed Mussels with Vermouth and Tarragon are not only delicious but a quick, inexpensive meal that is so easy to make.
During the week it’s hard to come up with something quick and easy for dinner. With this base recipe for cooking salmon you can prepare a fabulous dinner without a recipe and you’ll have perfectly cooked salmon every time. No more dry tasteless salmon for me.
Baked salmon with herbed butter and panko is crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside. Epicurean Butter makes this even simpler for a quick and easy week night dinner that will take less then 10 minutes to prep. This is a sponsored post but as always, all opinions are my own.
It can’t be summer in the South without a Seafood Boil overflowing with your favorite seafood, corn and new potatoes. Perfect for when you’re having a big crowd, just make sure you have a big enough pot!
Shrimp boil packs are an easier way to get the great flavors of a shrimp boil without turning on the stove.
We had friends over for Labor Day and while the guys wanted to grill ribs, I wanted fish, so we went with surf and turf. I made my favorite ribs that were falling off the bone by the time I gave them to Mike to put on the grill. While they were wonderful, I thought […]
Sriracha Shrimp paired with coconut rice is a DELICIOUS combination. Cooking the rice in coconut milk gives it a slightly sweet taste that’s perfect with the spicy shrimp.
Shrimp is always fresh and plentiful here in the Carolinas. With hot weather in the 90’s, I wanted something cold for dinner so I made this simple marinade. This is a no fuss recipe that has just the right combination of seasoning to flavor the shrimp without overpowering them. It needs to marinate overnight though.
While loving pasta, I am not a huge red sauce fan and most other sauces are too rich and heavy to eat very often. This sauce has great flavor from the prosciutto and only a little cream. The sauce, while memorable, doesn’t overpower the delicate scallops.
Natalie is not a big seafood lover so I am writing the Ten-Minute Tuesday post this week. How did I end up with such picky eaters in my house! I swear, I will eat anything but brussel sprouts. As long as you like shrimp, I think you’ll enjoy this recipe.
Fire up the grill for easy quesadillas stuffed with grilled corn and marinated shrimp. The grilled corn makes all the difference for this light and simple dinner that everyone will love.
Several years ago, Mike and I went to the Fearrington House for a cooking class. We arrived in the afternoon in time for tea and then enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The next morning we met with several others in the kitchen to begin an all day cooking lesson. This was one of the best cooking […]
One of my favorite places to eat in Greensboro is 1618 Seafood Grille. They almost always have fish tacos on their appetizer menu and it can easily be a meal in itself. I wanted to try my hand at making them and went to Cook’s Illustrated for a recipe that I knew I could rely […]
While at running camp, Lisa shared a pinterest recipe she had tried using a zucchini spiralizer. I love gadgets but there is only so much room in my kitchen for new equipment so I found a much smaller version at Sur la Table. It was super easy to use and in just a few seconds […]
My study abroad child will be coming home soon and has requested Southern food, which for her means grits and biscuits. I decided to experiment with shrimp and grits. I wanted to try a recipe with sririachi but my gang asked for a more traditional recipe, so I tried this one with andouille sausage.
Herb-Crusted Salmon is first brined then coated with a sauce before adding a crispy panko topping. You’ll find a crispy exterior with a flaky and moist interior. A great method for cooking salmon.
We are anxiously awaiting Spring in the South but while waiting, it is Spring somewhere because we can find fresh asparagus in the grocery. While not as good as what we will get locally in a couple of months, it was still pretty tasty roasted, and topped with shrimp and a light vinaigrette. The recipe […]
