Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style
The flavor of this delicate fish is enhanced with Italian-style seasonings that are sure to please even the pickiest eater. Quick, easy, and simply delicious.
This is a spicy sauce similar to etouffee. By adding seafood, it becomes Seafood Creole. Due to the seasoning mix, it is quite spicy. This can be controlled by adjusting the amount of the peppers. I like mine full strength, but for the wife I have to cut the peppers down to 1/8 teaspoon each. This recipe can easily be doubled or quadrupled for large affairs. It goes great with rice, garlic bread, a green salad and a good white wine, such as white Merlot, white Cabernet, Johannisburg Riesling, or Gewurztraminer. Use your favorite firm, white fish fillets in this recipe. Canned diced tomatoes can be used in place of chopping fresh tomatoes.
Chicken and Rice
Quickest thing going. Even my 12 year old son can make it in less than 15 minutes! Great for kids, big and small alike. Believe it or not, this dish is ready to eat in about 10 minutes! Delicious!
Chef John's Fresh Salmon Cakes
Chef John's recipe for salmon cakes uses fresh wild salmon for a delicious meal any night of the week.
While teaching English in Asia the past several years, I've been lucky to exchange some delicious and authentic recipes with local people. This Vietnamese banh mi sandwich is awesome, and it is a nice break from common sandwiches. The garlic chili sauce is common in Asian sections of markets but Indonesian sambal or Korean chili paste can also be substituted. Beer or red wine is the beverage of choice for this authentic recipe of French-influenced Vietnamese cuisine.
Easy Bacon, Onion and Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Wonderful stuffed burger that can be easily changed to suit different tastes. My kids who normally don't have onions on their burgers REALLY enjoyed these. We served with french fries and root beer floats!
Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups
This is a quick, easy and tasty meal - my husband's favorite! If you can make ahead and let marinate, it is even better. Roll on up to the stove and make a tasty treat for dinner tonight!
Sausage Biscuits and Gravy
Often imitated, never duplicated. Just make sure that after you make this for breakfast, you have a window of opportunity to go back to bed, because you won't be able to do much after consuming this. Cast-iron skillet is preferred. I prefer the taste that the maple sausage lends to the dish, however you could easily substitute regular or sage sausage in lieu of the maple. Single ladies, sit back and wait for proposals of marriage!
