Pan Seared Sirloin Steaks with Sauteed Onions

Pan Seared Sirloin Steaks with Sauteed Onions by John Spottiswood

We don't eat a lot of steak, and when we do I normally grill it. My mom used to frequently serve pan seared steaks, generally cheaper cuts like sirloin or london broil.

Oven Roasted Salmon w. Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté

Oven Roasted Salmon w. Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté by Yvonne Tally, Your Fit Gourmet

Wild salmon will be previously frozen at sea during the winter months. The salmon will still taste great but should be cooked the day of purchase and eaten within 1 day. I use salmon all year around but only purchase it at my neighborhood fish store, Whole Foods or any high end independent grocery store.

Seared Mahi Mahi w Rainbow Medley by jason kim

For our fish Fridays, we got the kids some mahi-mahi fillets and simply seared them on the stove top. We also included a fresh rainbow medley of diced red and green bell peppers and mangoes for some sweetness, creating a natural sauce/neutralizer for the fish. The great thing about mahi-mahi is that they cook well either baked,…
