Cilantro Shrimp

Cilantro Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple and absolutely delicious stir-fry shrimp dish. I've been looking for something easy and tasty like this. I have a new staple! I used a red chile sauce that we had on hand instead of the sambal oelek, and I added it selectively after stir frying to my husbands and my plates, but not to the kids plates. It was…

Fish Tacos with Lime-cilantro salsa

Fish Tacos with Lime-cilantro salsa by Nancy Miyasaki

Cumin, coriander, and paprika give these fish tacos a wonderfully warm flavor. The tangy sour cream, lime and cilantro sauce contrasts perfectly. Try shrimp for the snapper or romaine in place of cabbage to change it up if you like.

Thai Basil & Curry Shrimp - Pattaya

Thai Basil & Curry Shrimp - Pattaya by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious curry flavored shrimp stir fry without a heavy curry sauce. The combination of curry and basil is really delicious. This is normally not served very spicy, but you can spice it up as much as you want.

Grilled Shrimp

Grilled Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a very tasty grilled shrimp recipe. The ingredients don't sound like they would go together that well, but the result is fantastic. Try this summer on the grill. My kids loved it..with 9 year old Kyle finishing off 2 whole skewers!

Simple Himalayan Salt Block Salmon

Simple Himalayan Salt Block Salmon by John Spottiswood

My wife got me a Himalayan Salt Block to try grilling on this summer. We made our first attempt last night with salmon, trying it two ways. This is the first...a very simple effort and very delicious. My instinct with the salt block is that I am going to enjoy simple recipes the best, since they will allow the flavor of the salt…

Flavorful Grilled Shrimp

Flavorful Grilled Shrimp by John Spottiswood

This is a classic grilled shrimp recipe originally from Craig Clairborne's NYT cookbook, then adapted by Ina Garten, and then finally perfected by me. :-) Seriously, this is a wonderful staple to have in your pantry of recipes. You can serve this over pasta (which we did the other night), as an appetizer with a variety of dipping…

Swai with Lemon-Basil Pesto

Swai with Lemon-Basil Pesto by John Spottiswood

We made this dish with Swai, but it would work equally well with basa, tilapia, catfish, sole, or any other mild and flaky white fish. The pesto is bright and citrusy and contrasts well with the mild, garlicky flavor of the fish. Our kids loved it and all went back for seconds. We served it with fresh artichoke and rice.

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass by John Spottiswood

This fish is simply delicious. The flesh is like butter and the flavor is from heaven. I know that sounds extreme, but it's true. I was in Costco and the fresh fish counter had whole black bass. I'd never made it before, but the woman behind the counter said it is similar to yellowtail (hamachi) which is one of my favorites, so I…

Spicy Shrimp on Spinach

Spicy Shrimp on Spinach by John Spottiswood

We made this as one of the dishes at our annual stay at the Koehler Winery near in Los Olivos near Santa Barbara. Everything we made was delicious, but this might have been my favorite. We served it as an appetizer, and everyone raved about it. It was extremely easy and quick and the presentation was beautiful. I made this with a…

Lemon Paprika Tilapia

Lemon Paprika Tilapia by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious version of Tilapia that we adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe. We served it with the quinoa recipe linked below. It was a great combination. I put only a small amount of the sauce over the fish as the salt/pepper/paprika tilapia sauteed with a little butter is delicious all by itself!

Asian Crusted Salmon

Asian Crusted Salmon by Nancy Miyasaki

I'm always looking for interesting new ways to cook salmon that my kids will love. This crusted, blackened salmon was a great addition to my recipe box. I kept it relatively mild, but it could easily be spiced up by adding some cayenne pepper. I thought the indian spices complimented the flavor of the salmon wonderfully. I served…

Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado salsa

Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado salsa by John Spottiswood

None of our kids thought they were going to like the grilled pineapple in this recipe, but they all ended up loving it and we had none left over! The avocado salsa is mild and complements the salmon nicely without over powering it. The dish is beautiful and would be good for entertaining, but the meal is also easy enough for a week…

Scallops in Scallion Nests

Scallops in Scallion Nests by John Spottiswood

This is an attractive, flavorful dish, ideal as the first course for an elegant dinner. The scallions, which are cooked briefly in boiling water and served with a mustard sauce, are fantastic. I adapted this recipe from Jacques Pepin. While I loved the presentation, and everyone at our dinner party seemed to enjoy it, I wasn't…

Moroccan Broiled Fish Skewers or Fillets

Moroccan Broiled Fish Skewers or Fillets by John Spottiswood

This is a tasty Moroccan dish that you are sure to love. Serve it over salad, cous cous, bulgar pilaf, or white or brown rice. We've used thick white fish but also thinner fish like catfish or tilapia when they are more reasonable. You can't skewer them, but you can broil the whole fillet (see picture). It also works with salmon…

Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos by The Enthusiastic Eater

This light and healthy dinner is easy and quick to make, even midweek! Top the lemon garlic shrimp with whatever you like. I often use shredded cabbage and homemade guacamole but mango, pineapple, or corn salsa would be tasty, too!
