roasted shrimp, tomato & feta ~

The richness of the tomato sauce blends so heavenly with the shrimp and feta in this recipe. I made my own tomato sauce in this recipe which takes about 25 mins to simmer but if you don't have the prep time any great jarred sauce will work just reduce it in the skillet about 5 minutes and add the honey to it. You want a sauce that is on the thicken side not watery or runny.  Simmering for that 5 minutes will thicken the sauce and the honey will caramelize the shrimp just slightly. I used a cast iron skillet because [...]

fried brown rice ~

Short grain brown rice is the star in this Fried Rice. Unlike most rice prep this recipe calls for boiling the rice like you do pasta.  I used my instant pot to cook the pork shoulder in the time it took to boil the rice.

The brown rice adds a nice chew to the dish. ingredients 2 c brown rice 1 T Porcini Mushroom Sous Salt 1 T hoisin sauce 2 eggs scrambled 1 t red pepper [...]

seafood chowder ~

This soup came together after a week away with the family. We needed something quick but as always had to be flavorful as well.  I used Sea Bass, Shrimp and Spicy Sausage. You could use Salmon, Halibut or Cod in addition or as a substitute. There are so many different kinds of sausages being made today so experiment with some other varieties.  There is a chicken artichoke that would be tasty with cod and scallops. I used salsa because it already had the garlic, herbs and tomatoes as a base so it jump started our soup prep. I used our [...]
