halibut crudo

Halibut Crudo

This halibut crudo is a fusion dish I developed inspired by my love for Japanese sashimi. “Crudo” is the Italian word for “raw,” and refers to a dish of uncooked fish, shellfish, (or sometimes meat) that is seasoned and dressed with an oil, some type of citrus juice, or, at times, a vinaigrette. Despite what […]

Cioppino

Cioppino Seafood Stew

Ina Garten’s authentic Cioppino is outrageously good and truthfully, I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Cioppino, a classic tomato-based seafood stew loaded with shrimp, cod, mussels, scallops, and clams, is a healthy stew (or soup) that’s surprisingly easy to whip up in just about an hour. San Francisco is where Cioppino was invented way […]

braised snapper with Puttanesca

Oven Braised Snapper with Puttanesca

This oven-braised snapper with Puttanesca is a wonderful dish for fish lovers. I have blogged about Puttanesca already, but this version is a little different and not served with pasta. I found this lovely recipe in Fine Cooking and adapted it slightly, but the original one can be seen here. As many know, Spaghetti alla puttanesca […]

seared sea bass

Seared Sea Bass With Shallot Vinaigrette

Summer is all about easy, often healthy(er) recipes and limited prep time. In warmer months most of us naturally gravitate to lighter meals with more fresh vegetables and often less carbs. I actually aspire to cook like this as much as possible, year-round, because I honestly feel better, health-wise, doing so. But truthfully, this is […]

Crab Louie salad

Crab Louie Salad

Crab Louie salad, (pronounced LOO-ey), known also as, “the king of salads“, is a well-known dish, most food historians agree, first began appearing on menus of finer West Coast restaurants, sometime between the turn of the 20th century and World War I. Dig a little deeper and you find the first printed recipe for the […]

seared tuna

Seared Tuna Salad With Ginger Dressing

This simple recipe has a story to it. This seared tuna salad is a dish I ate almost nightly when I managed a restaurant in NYC years ago. It was my go-to meal of choice, not only because I’m a big tuna fan, but because it is incredibly easy (and fast) to make. Most importantly, […]

baked Ling cod

Crispy Almond Crusted Baked Ling Cod

Happy 2021! I SO wish I could say the world is back to “normal“, but sadly we’re not there just yet. But I’m hopeful. I strongly believe if we all do our part (and get vaccinated), we will begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is a marathon, not a […]

braised fish with tomato sauce

Braised Fish with Tomato Sauce

I’m not sure if a fish dish can be considered sexy, but if it can, this braised fish with tomato sauce should be. A healthful dish with flaky white fish and rich, flavorful stewed tomatoes and spinach. The bonus here, it’s also a quick meal and can be pulled together on a hectic weekday night […]

Spicy Salmon Roll Sushi Bowl

This is my spicy salmon roll sushi bowl and one I’ve loved for some time, but am just getting around to sharing it. Truthfully speaking, there is nothing all that complicated about this dish, but it’s the perfect one-bowl meal that’s easy to make and packed with nutrition. If you are a fish lover, this […]

crab summer rolls

Crab Summer Rolls

Vietnamese summer rolls, (also known as fresh spring rolls or summer rolls) are a healthy, often low-fat meal or snack I’m a huge fan of. Gourmet magazine’s description – “a salad packed into an edible container” –says it all. Once you’ve gathered all your ingredients, done your prep work, and mastered the basics, you can […]

cod with lemon and green olives

Oven Roasted Cod With Lemon And Green Olives

Warmer months often cause me to seek simpler meals. Not just time spent in preparation, but dishes that have fewer ingredients. This oven-roasted cod with lemon and green olives is just that; light, flavorful, and almost effortless. Cod has a lovely mild flavor and while I often like stronger-tasting fish, like salmon, cod has a […]

Scandinavian style cured salmon

Scandinavian-Style Cured Salmon “Gravlax”

A Special Note With COVID-19 slowly closing in on my Northern California area, I’ve been too distracted to write or post these days. But today, with my boys home from school, the reality of this pandemic is truly settling in. Cancelations of life events make me feel like a giant “pause” button has been pressed on […]

shrimp with feta

Roasted Shrimp With Feta

This is a lovely recipe from Ian Garten’s Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? cookbook that I have been making for years. My husband first introduced me to this effortless shrimp dish years ago after having it at a friend’s house. Now it’s considered a staple in my weekday meal repertoire. Ina Garten is a well-known […]

linguine with clams

Linguine With Clams

I have always loved linguine with clams, a simple, classic pasta dish. Honestly, what’s not to love? Called linguine alle vongole in Italian, this traditional Italian favorite is the perfect warm-weather go-to pasta dish no matter where you live. Widespread and popular on almost every Italian coast, Naples boasts it all began there and is actually […]
