Fried Fish Sandwich

August 13, 2012 Fish

I don’t do a lot of fish on this blog, but every once in awhile I get a craving. Summer and fried fish go hand in hand, which is why I couldn’t resist posting a lightening quick fried fish recipe. This sandwich is beautifully simple- nothing more than a good, thick piece of fish, some [...]

Lemony White Bean and Tuna Salad

March 20, 2012 Fish

    The unseasonably warm (yet glorious!) weather has caused me to lose my taste for heavy winter foods. I’ve been cracking into lighter fare, so it has been all salads, yogurt and cold noodles for me. And this amazing tuna salad. Simple, lemony and super filling. It’s prefect for lunch/dinner and home/office, it travels [...]

Citrus Fish Tacos with Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa

February 11, 2012 Dinner

When I lived in Charleston, SC, my friends and I would cruise out to Sullivan’s Island regularly to spend an afternoon on the beach. Nearly every trip consisted of a stop at Poe’s Tavern for fish tacos. We’d grab a table in the sunshine, order up a few beers and some tacos, and watch the [...]

Smoked Salmon and Crème Fraiche Linguine

February 1, 2012 Dinner

This may be one of the simplest, quickest dinner recipes I’ve ever posted. It’s a recipe I created while living in a tiny dorm-like apartment in France. I can’t even say it was a studio because it was actually a single, cramped bedroom in a high school where I taught English to French students.  There [...]

Summer Corn and Clam Chowder

August 18, 2011 Dinner

This post is going to be a quickie. Tomorrow I’m off bright and early headed for the farm in North Carolina. We’re taking care of wedding details this weekend, so much to do! It’s a tad overwhelming, but I know we’ll get there. While I’m running around like a crazy person, you can enjoy this [...]

Pan Seared Sea Scallop Salad with Cilantro Dressing

August 9, 2011 Fish

Sea scallops are one of those foods I used to avoid making because they seemed…I don’t know…elitist? They’re sophisticated and delicate and so intimidating. I’m terrified of turning them to rubber in the pan, so I usually only go for them at restaurants. But the other night, after one too many of these, my confidence [...]

Homemade Fish Sticks

June 28, 2011 Dinner

This is a story about the magical deep freezer we had growing up. The freezer was located in the garage and contained the most wonderful treats a kid could ever eat. It was my father’s deep freezer, his third child after me and my sister and he gave it a lot of TLC. It was [...]

Super Simple “Pad Thai”

June 23, 2011 Dinner

I gingerly call this dish “Pad Thai.” I guess it’d be more accurate to say this is what I consider to be the home cook’s quick and dirty version. I realize that it’s probably deeply offensive among serious cooks that I call this dish Pad Thai at all, and so I’m hoping the use of [...]

Zesty Coconut Shrimp

March 9, 2011 Fish

Ok, let’s call this week what it is; Jennifer’s obsession with coconut. I’ve gone off the coconut oil deep end and I’m not sure I’ll ever fully recover. Then again, who’d want to? This weekend, in order to get my coconut fix, I made zesty coconut shrimp with a spicy dipping sauce. I’ve provided the [...]

Omelette with Salmon and Asparagus

August 20, 2010 Breakfast

I made this recipe using leftover salmon cakes and some asaparagus that had been lingering in the fridge. Omelettes miraculously seem to perfectly merry misfit ingredients that would otherwise be completely incompatable. This omelette was savory, but quite heavy so make it for a larger group or if you are in need of a hearty [...]
