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,…

Binagoongang Baboy (Pork with Shrimp Paste)

Binagoongang Baboy (Pork with Shrimp Paste) by ShaleeDP

This is a native Filipino dish that many locals enjoy. To the foreign tongue, it may come quite a bit strong because of the shrimp paste. You can adjust the quantity to make it a bit less salty. I prefer it less salty 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.

Brussel Sprouts Sauteed in Garlic & Olive Oil by John Spottiswood

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.

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…

Mediterranean Filet of Sole by John Spottiswood

Dover Sole was on sale at the local supermarket, and I felt inspired to try an recreate some of the simple, delicious flat fish dishes while traveling through the Greek Islands. Everyone raved about the outcome. This will take you to Mikonos...whether you've been there before or not!

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…

Shredded Brussel Sprouts

Shredded Brussel Sprouts by Nancy Miyasaki

If you've never had shredded brussel sprouts before, you're in for a treat! These are really tasty. They have less of the bitter taste you get with whole or halved brussel sprouts, so people who are not brussel sprout fans may still like them. And brussel sprout lovers like me will still thoroughly enjoy them! To save time, use a…

Moules a la Provencale

Moules a la Provencale by Ali El Safy

One of our favorite appetizers. Also makes a great meal with fries. I recommend that home chefs get their butcher to clean the mussels before you take them home. Most stores will do this for you.

Sauted Cilantro Halibut

Sauted Cilantro Halibut by Mihir Shah

This halibut dish really shines if you saute the fish over high heat; crispy outside and juicy in.
