Lemon Basil Fish Marinade

This lemon basil fish marinade recipe is a product of me having too much basil. Whenever I buy a basil plant, it seems to grow like crazy and I can never keep up with the amount of basil it produces. It turns out, basil is a super flavorful addition to marinades, like this fish marinade. I haven’t tried it with any other fish other than tilapia, so I don’t know how well it goes with other types of fish. Let […]

Garlic Dijon Salmon

This baked salmon recipe is another one of my go-to quick and easy dinner recipes. Our family eats a lot of salmon, and we love to switch things up all of the time. Lemon, garlic and Dijon mustard make a tasty marinade for these baked salmon fillets. The best part of this recipe is that there is very little preparation time, leaving more time to spend with family and friends and less time in the kitchen. Garlic Dijon Salmon Recipe […]

Shrimp with Paprika and Garlic

A long time ago, in a galaxy… well, okay, it was this galaxy. I bookmarked a recipe for Mark Bittman’s shrimp – also known as “The Simplest and Best Shrimp Dish” or “Shrimp My Way.” It sounded pretty good, but, for whatever reason, I never made it. Well, stop the presses: I made it recently and it is pretty good. I don’t know if it’s the best shrimp dish ever—no Bubba Gump here, I’ve yet to taste every shrimp dish in the […]

Quick and Easy Salmon Burgers

I’m as big a fan of a traditional hamburger as anyone you’d meet. Sometimes, though, red meat is just a little too much. Whether that’s due to diet, general heaviness, or straight up boredom depends. On the other hand, salmon burgers are healthy, enlightening, and totally delicious. They’re a wonderful alternative to the traditional hamburger, and a great stand-alone dish; and with the Magic Bullet, extremely easy to make!

Cilantro Lime Crema

Living in San Francisco has turned me into sort of a fish taco snob. There are so many incredible fish taco places here! For me, the one thing that makes a delicious fish taco (besides the fish, of course) is the creamy “dressing” lathered on top. Most fish tacos I’ve had here are topped with a delicious, flavorful, creamy topping that I have not been able to reproduce… until now! I finally perfected a fish taco crema topping that tastes just like some of […]

Lemon Yogurt Dill Sauce

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to quickly and easily make a sauce for fish or chicken that was tangy, tasty, and healthy? Oh wait… An ongoing project of mine is crispy skinned salmon, having had a nearly perfect version at a wedding (of all places) a few years ago. That’s still in progress: I don’t know if I’m not using enough oil or heat or losing the crispy skin because I’m keeping the fish too juicy […]

Quick and Easy Tartar Sauce

Last night was Fish ‘n Chips night, so I made some homemade tartar sauce to go with it. Yes, they sell it pre-made at grocery stores, but it tastes so much fresher if you quickly whip some up at home with the Magic Bullet. It seriously takes less than 5 minutes to make. This tartar sauce is bursting with flavor and is guaranteed to be an essential addition to your dish. Enjoy! Quick and Easy Tartar Sauce Ingredients  1/3 cup […]

Salmon Burgers

When we were out for dinner the other night, I saw something on the menu I have never tried: salmon burgers. I wondered how easy it would be to make them at home and, it turns out, they are very easy to make! I found a really good recipe on Food Network that I adapted to my own taste. To start, you will need a boneless, skinless salmon fillet. This is very important – I almost bought a salmon fillet with the skin […]

Miso-Glazed Cod

Learning how to cook cod well has been on my To Do list for a while: it’s a famously delicious fish with a great history and is available cheaply frozen in my local supermarket. Plus, apparently it’s sustainable again, so that’s cool. This dish is inspired by the famous black cod with miso dish at Nobu, the famous restaurant in New York. (As it turns out, black cod isn’t all that similar to cod. Whatever.) The miso glaze here is a […]

Pesto Tilapia with Cherry Tomatoes

I never liked fish until I met my husband. We were in Malibu at Duke’s and he somehow convinced me to try fish and I actually enjoyed it! To this day, I don’t like strong-tasting fish and usually stick with light, white fish like tilapia. Tilapia is a great fish to cook with because it goes with pretty much anything. Cue: pesto! I like to make my pesto sauce fresh in my Magic Bullet, since it’s so quick and easy. After brushing […]
