Pasta Strega Nonna

A very quick and easy pasta dish inspired by my Italian grandmother. Sort of an Italian stir-fry. Serve this over short pastas such as shells, orrechietti, or farfalle.

Coconut Shrimp I

These crispy shrimp are rolled in a coconut beer batter before frying. For dipping sauce, I use orange marmalade, mustard and horseradish mixed to taste.

Barbequed Steelhead Trout

Rating: 4.5 stars 180
A steelhead is really just a rainbow trout that has been to either one of the Great Lakes or to the ocean for most of its life and has returned to it's birthplace to spawn. This is a twisted way to serve steelhead or any other trout or salmon. It may sound odd, but this is a delicious dish.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Rating: 4.5 stars 831
This is a wonderful (and easy) recipe I got from my Aunt. The flavors of lemon and dill really complement the fish. I like to use wild Alaskan salmon for this recipe, but any salmon will work. I usually don't measure, so these are all estimates. Play with the ingredients to suit your own tastes!
