Swordfish tacos, lunch for one Broiled swordfish tacos

A girl (or any person for that matter) can find herself eating alone from time to time—it’s normal, right? Having a set of hubby+kiddies, family in general, and friends promises no guaranties that there will be company at the table at any given breakfast, lunch or dinner. I work at home and most days I […]

Simple salmon says Broiled fresh wild salmon with lemon thyme

Just look at that. Isn’t it gorgeous???? Fresh… Wild… Salmon. I’m so excited to see fresh, wild salmon, and at reasonable prices, at the grocery stores again. Just look at that color. Gorgeous. So I had to get me some for dinner and I bought one pound (Which is enough for 3-4 servings). This cut […]

Fish tacos Fish tacos

He was wild, he was fresh, he was available, and he was mine. I held him in my arms. I was thinking: “Rock Cod, you white fleshy fish, what shall I do about you?” “The kids won’t eat it”, said Suburban cowboy. “Maybe in tomato sauce?” I tried. “No”, he dismissed. And he was right. […]

I should have known better Shrimp tempura

Another cooperation in the kitchen between my husband and son ended up with a fabulous shrimp tempura. These guys are really good at deep frying, I tell ‘ya! And me? Well, I really should have known better than to wait for the last shrimp at the bottom of the bowl to jump on my feet […]

Salmon in Seattle or Copper River salmon, two ways Grilled salmon with fresh herbs and zests

At first, I didn’t want to title the post“Salmon in Seattle”… but then I just couldn’t resist. Salmon is a big deal in Seattle and there’s a lot of anticipation before the beginning of Copper River salmon season. But I have already mentioned that before so no need to go into it again, right? (If […]

Fish ‘n chips Fish and Chips

Sometimes I let the guys cook. They play in the kitchen, taking their time, talking, discussing the recipe, but using tongs because they don’t like touching the food and getting their hands dirty, ha ha.

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Succulent & Sustainable in Seattle at Ray’s Boathouse Grilled Copper River King Salmon with Pinot Noir sauce

A few years ago while visiting Los Angeles I was invited to dinner. The host prepared salmon and I asked her: “what type of salmon is it?” She looked at me somewhat puzzled: ”what do you mean what type of salmon?”. “Is it a Sockeye? A Coho? A Chinook?” I tried again. “It’s salmon. I […]

Linguine with Shrimp Scampi Linguine with Shrimp Scampi

I love this dish with delicate lemon flavored pasta and beautiful orange colored shrimp sautéed in butter. Yum. This recipe makes a perfect weekday meal. It is so easy to make and you can have dinner on the table in 20 minutes or less. I think that I cook this meal every 4-6 weeks when […]

Fresh Wild Pacific Northwest Salmon Fresh Wild Pacific Northwest Salmon

Hey, I just realized that this blog exists for almost 4 months and I still haven’t given you a single salmon recipe! How could that be? Salmon are now “in season”. Meaning, they are swimming back to their home here at the local lakes, rivers, streams, and creeks. We went to see them during Issaquah […]
