Almond-Crusted Sea Bass

Almond-Crusted Sea Bass

I love fish. And tasty yummy, savory coatings on my fish. Like this salmon and this tilapia. So good. So I’ve been hard at work (I mean, eating, really) trying to find new low-carb fish recipes. Instead of using panko, flour or [...]

Lemon-Herb Tilapia

Lemon-Herb Tilapia

I’m writing this post on my phone as I sit on the couch feeding baby Hunter for his bedtime feeding. Dustin is at the gym, working out with his brother. He should be home in about an hour. It’s 8:27pm. The girls are in their bedroom, playing. They are supposed to be in their beds, […]


Southern Fried Catfish

Who's up for a fish fry?? Now, you know me -- I'm a Southern California girl, born and raised -- but Dustin spent many of his formative years in Dallas, Texas.  To say this Texas upbringing formed his appetite for Southern food would be an understatement.  The man certainly enjoys his fried okra, beef brisket, [...]

Salmon Teriyaki

As promised, here is my Salmon Teriyaki post! I love sushi...well, the "softie" sushi like rolls and small bits of raw fish on lots of rice and other tasty goodies.  My favorites are the California roll, Tempura Shrimp roll and Dragon Roll, to give you an idea.  Man, those all sound good right about now! [...]

Tuna Melt

In order to explain just how tasty these tuna melts are, I need to give you some background. I need to explain how Dustin hates tuna.  Well, canned tuna, rather. And, when I say, "hates," I mean: will practically vomit if he smells it. Now, I'm not a huge proponent of canned tuna, per say, [...]

Panko-Crusted Tilapia

As I sit here typing, I wonder why on earth I haven't yet shared this Panko-Crusted Tilapia since it is one of my absolute favorite fish recipes. This Panko-Crusted Tilapia is super tasty.  It has a combination of fresh lemon, garlic, ginger and other fragrant spices, including paprika and crushed red pepper, that also gives [...]

Pan-Seared Scallops with Linguine and Roasted Pine Nuts

Yay!  Pan-Seared Scallops are finally here!  For those of you who now think I'm crazy for randomly saying Pan-Seared Scallops are finally here -- as if they were missing -- see this post for the whole story). Believe it or not, but I had actually never made pan-seared scallops before.  I searched around for different [...]

Spicy Mini Crab Cakes (and a Giveaway!)

If you already follow me on twitter or on facebook, **hint hint** you probably know I entered the "I am a Saucy Mama" contest offered by Barhyte Specialty Foods.  To participate in the contest, you needed to be a food blogger and be willing to create a recipe using at least one of their ingredients.  [...]

Best Crab Cakes with Lemon-Dill Aioli

Would you believe I had never tasted a crab cake until earlier this year? Crazy, right? Oddly enough, it happened in Las Vegas. Dustin and I went out to a nice seafood restaurant called Chart House while our friends watched Jordan at the hotel. Mind you, this was our first night out without Jordan. Ever. [...]

Baja Fish Tacos

Baja Fish Tacos with Fresh Pico de Gallo

Sadly, I find most restaurants just don't know how to make good fish tacos.  Such a shame. It was in Baja California where my love for fish tacos began. When I was young, my parents owned a home in Ensenada (which is located on the coast of Baja California about 30 minutes south of the [...]
