Simple Pan-fried Fish with Indian Spices

Simple Pan-fried Fish with Indian Spices by John Spottiswood

This is a simple dish I throw together with fresh white fish fillets (typically Swai, Tilapia, Catfish, or Orange Roughy). It's easy to make and our whole family loves it. I know it seems crazy to give this four and a half stars, but it's a really great combination of flavors. Try this with rice and a vegetable side dish or salad,…

Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and Gravy by Veronica Gantley

This gravy is practically a must in most southern kitchens. It is called by many names, sausage gravy, sawmill gravy, white gravy. It is similar to the one served at the Cracker Barrel restaurant and made in so many southern kitchens. At first, I thought, this is too simple a recipe to post. Everyone knows how to make gravy,…

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans by John Spottiswood

It is rare to have a side dish which everyone keeps reaching for instead of the main dish. That's especially true if its a fairly simple green vegetable side. But these green beans were truly that good. We used packaged, thin french cut green beans from Trader Joes. They are tender and tasty on their own, but I've never had them taste…

Red beans and rice

Red beans and rice by John Spottiswood

I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious! Normally, I serve this with a jerk marinated chicken or pork, but it also goes well with grilled fish, steak and many other treats. If you serve it with something that isn't spicy, try adding some of the spices…

This is a simple, tasty side dish to add to your menu. I've adapted it from Marcella Hazan's recipes for other vegetables. It tastes GREAT with Brussel Sprouts. Broccoli is good too.

Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style

Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style by John Spottiswood

These prawns are absolutely fantastic. Every time I make them I marvel at the density and depth of the flavors. I typically leave the Cayenne pepper out of about half of them if I'm cooking for the whole family. I often serve these in combination with a Moroccan chicken, fish, or lamb dish, but they work fine on their own too.

Camarones a la plancha - Shrimp on the griddle

Camarones a la plancha - Shrimp on the griddle by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious mexican shrimp dish that you'll find served in the lovely seaside restaurants along both of Mexico's coast. The wonderful smells of the shrimp, garlic, and onion will fill your house and make everyone's mouths water. I cooked these tonight for Cinco de Mayo and both we and our kids absolutely loved them. I left…

Tilapia with Sweet Peppers

Tilapia with Sweet Peppers by Salad Foodie

I like the speed with which I can get a seafood dish from pan to table. Only 15 minutes of cooking makes this tilapia main dish perfect for hurried meal times. Add rice or other grain as a side, plus a salad, and ...... ring the dinner bell!

Laksa Puso ng Saging (Saute'd Banana Heart) by ShaleeDP

This vegetable dish needs a bit of care when preparing. It is quite easy but cannot afford mistakes especially when rinsing the banana heart to let out the sap.
