Salmon and Spinach Fettuccine

Rating: Unrated
Inspired by my favorite local Italian restaurant's secret recipe. After some trial and error, I think I have it. Creamy Alfredo sauce and salmon complement each other well. Spinach adds great color.

Shredded Potato Salmon Cakes

Rating: Unrated
Delicious salmon cakes made with potatoes and the added color of red bell pepper and green onion. I came up with the idea for this recipe out of pure laziness. I didn't want to wait for potatoes to boil! It turned out great and definitely became the overall favorite. I enjoy a simple garlic mayonnaise to accompany the cakes but you can pretty much use whatever you desire.

Shrimp Couscous Salad

Rating: Unrated
For a beautiful, flavorful cold salad and a wonderful variation from the standards, try this easy and delicious couscous. Shrimp and tomatoes are tossed with couscous and feta cheese, then dressed in a garlic vinaigrette. Always a hit, and never goes to waste.

A delicious bisque made with shrimp and crab meat. A garnish of chopped green onions is always a delicious addition to this bisque.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes

Rating: Unrated
Having lived by the Chesapeake Bay on Kent Island, MD nearly my whole life, I was challenged to develop this authentic Maryland style crab cake about a year ago. Many people claim to have the true Maryland crab cake, but this one uses all lump meat with almost no filler added and tastes incredible! Let me know what you think!

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Jen's Jambalaya

Rating: Unrated
My family loves a lot of flavor and spice in our food and jambalaya delivers. This is my version of a New Orleans jambalaya that's got a nice kick to it but not overly hot for those whose tongues can't handle it.

True Maryland Crab Cakes

Rating: Unrated
This Crab Cake recipe is the true Crab Cake with no fillers and no heavy spices, all crab meat. This recipe has been in my family for generations.

Smoked Salmon Spread

Rating: Unrated
A delicious and easy spread that always gets many compliments. Serve it with somewhat bland crackers to taste the smoked salmon. You can add some chopped capers for more flavor, if needed. I usually serve this on a nice plate and put the spread in a mold before serving.

Smoked Salmon Sushi Roll

Rating: Unrated
A very basic and easy way to make sushi rolls.

Shrimp Fried Rice I

Rating: Unrated
This is an excellent tasting shrimp dish with Chinese flair. Serve as a side dish or main course, with soy sauce or teriyaki sauce.

Absolutely Delicious Stuffed Calamari

Rating: Unrated
Calamari tubes are stuffed with seafood and baked in a rich cream sauce before serving over a bed of linguine. This is probably the best calamari, if not the best entree, you'll ever have!

Fisherman's Pie

Rating: Unrated

It's almost like a shepherd's pie but with fish and spinach. Great dish for a cold gloomy day. It's Irish comfort food at its best.
