Kung Pao Scallops

Kung Pao Scallops

I wanted to share this yummy dinner I have made a few times. I don’t usually cook with scallops for some reason, even though they are super easy and fast to prepare. And this recipe is no exception. I love this [...]

Easy Lobster Bisque

Easy Lobster Bisque

Lobster Bisque is one of my absolute favorite things. Without fail, I will order it if at a nice restaurant. It’s kinda like my barometer for whether the restaurant is a “good” restaurant. If I order a lobster bisque [...]


Shrimp and Grits

LOVE me some Shrimp and Grits! Not only is this simple dish amazingly yummy and robust with flavor, it’s also super easy to make. The entire meal can be made in about 30 minutes which makes it a no-brainer for us when we have shrimp on hand. And we intentionally have shrimp on hand.

Pad Thai with Shrimp

I recently asked on Facebook and Twitter what types of recipes you would like to see on my blog and the two most requested recipes were bread and Thai food. Which brings me to this post.  As you may have noticed, I don't make much Thai food.  Um...pretty much none at all. This is weird, [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

Linguine with Shrimp Scampi

I am definitely a girl who likes her lemons. Whether it's in my lemonade, squeezed over some grilled fish, in a salad dressing or even in my glass of ice water, I will love it. You probably could have guessed that, though, from my recent post on Halibut Picatta with Asparagus.  Dustin, however, isn't usually [...]

Halibut Picatta

Halibut Picatta with Asparagus

Every Wednesday, I do our grocery shopping for the week.  This means, by default, that we have some sort of fresh fish for dinner every Wednesday.  Dustin and I are HUGE fans (yes, huge enough fans to put "huge" in all-capitals, in case you were wondering) of fresh fish and look forward each week to [...]

Pan-Roasted Salmon

Pan-Roasted Salmon

I don’t usually like to tell you guys what to do.  I figure you are welcome to try my recipes if you find them interesting. But, this fish recipe is different.  This recipe will blow your mind. Out of all the food I've cooked, this is probably the recipe I have made the most ever [...]
