We all should be eating more fish and this 3-ingredient recipe makes it easier than ever. It takes only 15-minutes in the oven so it goes from prep to table in under 20 minutes.

Red Curry Glazed Salmon

The American Heart Association suggests eating at least 8 ounces of fish per week and the heart healthy Mediterranean eating plan recommends up to 15 ounces per week. Seafood is an excellent source of protein, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and if you’re eating fish, you’re not eating steak. This is one of my favorite…

Tuscan Shrimp and Beans

Cook’s Illustrated featured this recipe back in March/April 2017. Whenever I see “Tuscan” in the title of a recipe, I’m sold. You will find a bounty of beans in many Tuscan dishes (which is why I like them) and adding shrimp to the beans seemed like a winning combination. This deeply flavored dish is a…

Poached Cod in Tomato Broth with Crispy Shallots

How to cook fish correctly seems to be a question for many people. The fear of overcooking or undercooking stops many from attempting to make fish at home. This recipe, adapted from Alison Roman, takes all the guesswork out of cooking fish. Since the fish simmers slowly in a tomato broth, it’s less likely to…

15-Minute Shrimp Tacos

This recipe cuts a few corners without sacrificing flavor and nutrition. By using a taco seasoning packet instead of making your own blend of seasonings and a pre-shredded bag of coleslaw mix, you can pull these tacos together in 15 minutes. Frozen shrimp should always be in your freezer because you can defrost them quickly…

Caramelized Shallot Pasta

.I give full credit for this recipe to Alison Roman, former NY Times food columnist and now writer of her own newsletter and cooking series. This recipe spiked in popularity during the pandemic. The use of simple pantry ingredients combined with quick and easy cooking techniques makes it a winner in my book. The intense…

Anchovy Pasta with Garlic, Lemon and Arugula

Don’t be worried that this simple dish will be overpowered by the strong flavor of anchovies. It packs a powerful flavor punch. But not in a fishy way. The anchovies are present but not overwhelming. The addition of olive oil, lemon and herbs helps to balance their flavor so the anchovies are in the background,…

Creamy and Light Salmon Salad with Yogurt and Dill

Tinned fish is convenient, economical, and nutrient-rich so don’t limit your options to just tuna fish. Canned salmon is a pantry staple of mine because I love it as an alternative to tuna. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein and calcium (if it’s not boneless). For quick and healthy weeknight dinners, I use it…

Smoked Trout with Red Pepper Jam and Lemon Oil

I just discovered smoked trout at Trader Joes and I will never go back to tuna fish. These meaty fillets are packed in a tin so they can be kept in your pantry for quick, easy, weeknight meals. For those of you not sure about the strong flavor of other tinned fish like sardines, they…

Zesty Sardine Toast with Capers and Herbs

Just mentioning sardines will get a cringed-face reaction. I’m here to hopefully change that response. These little fish come with a long list of reasons why you should be eating them. They are shelf-stable, inexpensive, sustainable, packed with protein, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, a good source of calcium and they can help you get…

Shrimp Orzo Salad with Fresh Dill and Lemon

I love anything with fresh dill and lemon and these two favorites are paired with whole wheat orzo and shrimp for a light, fresh summer salad. It’s a meal in one bowl. How easy is that!

Weeknight Salmon with a Honey Ginger Glaze

My go-to weeknight fast food meal is always salmon. I stockpile individually frozen wild-caught salmon filets in my freezer for a quick and easy, after a long day of work, meal. But don’t let the easy prep fool you. This dish would be a welcomed entree at any dinner party. I adapted this recipe from…
