Garlic & Butter Seafood Pasta

This Garlic & Butter Seafood Pasta is a variation of the seafood spaghetti dish that's already in the archives. The latter used wine while this one has more garlic and buttery flavor plus the capers which I absolutely love in pasta dishes. Just like the other recipe, this one is also very easy to make.   Recipe: Garlic & Butter Seafood Pasta Ingredients 1 box of the angel hair noodles, cooked al dente 1 sm onion, chopped 4-5 cloves of garlic, ...

Baked Garlic-Herbed & Lemon Steelhead Trout

I was so happy when we found this fresh farm raised vacuum sealed Steelhead Trout from Wal-Mart for about $9. I would've loved to purchase more than 1 but since it's from Wal-Mart we've decided to just try 1 for now and see how it is first. Well, it was surprisingly good. I mean, really really good. I'd suggest you check out Wal-Mart after reading this and go get one or a couple for yourself. ...

Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Review

We were first introduced to Margaret Holmes when our neighbor Ms. Peggy invited us to her family's Easter dinner a few years ago. She served Margaret Holmes Collard Greens as one of the side dishes and it was really good. I love collard greens but I don't make it that often because it takes a while to cook and it needs to be seasoned well. I have no expertise on collard greens. I think I've ...

Sweet Chili Swai Nuggets

When I made fish and chips the other day using swai fish fillets I set aside a few of the fried fish nuggets to coat with sweet chili sauce to eat with rice. I had such a hankering for sweet chili flavor so I made some.I'm a grown up, I'd do what I want and eat what I want. Errrmmmmmmm.... Back to the Sweet Chili Swai Nuggets. They were good with white rice. YUM-O! By the ...

Spicy Crab & Green Beans Stir-Fry

I've mentioned before how much I love green beans. I love it so much I should just create its own category in this blog, HAH! My husband is getting tired of green beans but that's fine because that means I'll have more green beans for myself. Since he doesn't like green beans as much as I do I mostly make a stir-fry dish for lunch for me. Like this Spicy Crab & Green Beans Stir-Fry. ...

Baked Swai Fillets With Sauteed Spinach & Kale

I've finally found the best way to cook swai fillets. Usually I'd lightly bread the fillets with flour or corn meal then pan fry 'em in butter. Easy and simple but more often that not the fish is wet. I do everything to absorb all the liquid from the fish before cooking but I must be doing something wrong because none has worked. Take in consideration of course that these are from a frozen ...

Seafood Mix & Green Beans Stir-Fry

This Seafood Mix & Green Beans Stir-Fry was a quick dinner I whipped up last Saturday. I love seafood mix bags because it gives you all that seafood goodness and conveniently so. The mix consists of calamari(squid), shrimp, mussels, octopus, and chunks of imitation crabmeat. Stir-fry 'em or add into a creamy pasta dish, either way it will be quick and delicious. Recipe: Seafood Mix & Green Beans Stir-Fry Ingredients 1 bag of frozen seafood mix oil for sauteing a ...

Salmon Patties With Zucchini Relish

I literally didn't know what to make for dinner last night when Scott asked while he was still at work. He suggested salmon patties so I said sure why not? He brought home the 2 main ingredients that I needed which were the cans of wild salmon and eggs. Salmon patties are easy to make. I actually usually make these for breakfast but they're perfect for dinner too. Serve them on top of salad greens ...

Watermelon Rinds & Apple Slaw

Whenever I make fish, in fillets or nuggets or a whole one, I always serve some kind of salad next to it. Normally I'd make pico de gallo or mango/avocado salsa. I can't remember what cooking show I've watched recently but I surely remember a fresh slaw using watermelon rind in the episode. I made a mental note that the next time I gave my daughter watermelon I'd save the rinds to make the slaw. I've ...

Seafood Fettuccine With Alfredo Sauce

This is the Seafood Fettuccine With Alfredo Sauce dish that I've mentioned in the homemade alfredo sauce post last week. The seafood component is a bag of frozen mixed mussels, cuttlefish, and squid plus a bag of frozen small shrimp. I made the fettuccine from scratch and like I've said, the sauce as well. For the sauce and pasta recipes, just click on the links attached in the recipe card below.   Recipe: Seafood Fettuccine With Alfredo Sauce Ingredients homemade ...

Shrimp & Penne In Pesto Sauce

When we were in Cary a couple of weeks ago we saw Ragazzi's while driving out of the mall. Scott and I started talking about the penne and salmon in pesto sauce dish that haunts my dreams every time I think of Italian food and Ragazzi's. I decided to make something similar as part of my bi-weekly meal planning but since I couldn't find fresh salmon I opted for shrimp. It's not basil season yet so ...

Curry-Sarciado Tilapia

After all the meat and sweets we've devoured around the holidays I had a serious craving for fish. Tilapia to be specific. I wanted a whole fried tilapia too but I couldn't find it in the usual Wal-Mart and Food Lion I go to for groceries so I had to contend with tilapia fillets a few days after Christmas. I finally found a bag of whole tilapias at another Wal-Mart store that was a bit ...

Beer-Battered Tilapia Fish & Chips

I am finally getting my foodblogging mojo back. I have been sick for 2 weeks and I'm still feeling a bit blah but not as bad. I actually made this Beer-Batter Tilapia Fish & Chips combo for dinner the day after we visited the NC Aquarium almost 3 weeks ago. While there, I had the fish and chips for lunch and it was really good. Simple but good. While driving home and thinking about what ...

Sea Cuisine Almond Crusted Flounder & Tortilla Crusted Tilapia

Again, NO we are not turning vegetarians but this is definitely a good Meatless Monday dish to serve the family. Scott and I were craving for fish tonight so we went to Food Lion to see what they've got as far as fresh fish goes. I said I wanted salmon but the 'fresh' fillet at the store just didn't look right. They didn't have any other fresh fish to pick from so we decided ...

Sesame & Sweet Chili Tilapia Bites

Trust me when I say the dish in the bowl involves Tilapia. I can't blame you though if you thought it's sesame chicken. The inspiration came from the latter but it's really fish you're looking at in that picture. When I took out the tilapia fillets to make for dinner last night I really didn't want to do anything breaded and the usual pan-fried way. I wanted to make something new. That's when I thought of ...
