Mahi Mahi Tacos with Mole Sauce

I started working for Meijer corporate last summer as a product development chef. Beyond what myself and our team are developing, it’s also so fun trying all the new products that are either on our store shelves currently or ones that will soon be launched. I love our line of Frederik’s sauces, so I was Mahi Mahi Tacos with Mole Sauce

Orange-Maple Walnut Crusted Salmon

Citrus season is in full swing and I love all the juicy oranges and grapefruits available at the store right now. The sweet orange and maple flavor of this walnut topping is the perfect compliment to the fatty salmon. This pairs nicely with salad greens tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil or wild rice.

Firecracker Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite proteins – it cooks quickly, has meaty texture and is very nutrient dense. The marinade on this fish has a great balance of sweet, spicy and salty. I served mine with orzo but this would also be great with mashed potatoes, quinoa or a leafy green salad. 3. Place Firecracker Salmon

Crispy Parmesan Dill Tuna Patties

Canned tuna is one of my favorite foods to keep on-hand in our pantry. It’s chock-full of protein (around 28 grams in 4 ounces!) and very affordable. These patties can be served in a variety of ways, but I recommend serving them with roasted veggies, pasta or salad. You could also put them on buns Crispy Parmesan Dill Tuna Patties

Honey-Soy Salmon Rice Bowls

Rice bowls are so fun because everyone can customize their own. This crispy, salty and sweet salmon is extremely delicious and pairs nicely with the veggies and rice. The sriracha mayo adds creaminess and a nice spicy note. Enjoy with a side of fresh fruit and you have the perfect healthy lunch or dinner! 2. Honey-Soy Salmon Rice Bowls

Gochugaru Shrimp

I recently tried this spice for the first time and I am hooked! Gochugaru is a coarsely ground Korean chili powder (similar to crushed red pepper flakes in texture). It’s traditionally made from sun-dried peppers without the seeds, giving it a slightly sweet flavor. This buttery, garlicky and spicy sauce is perfect with shrimp! Serve Gochugaru Shrimp

Salmon Chowder

Seafood chowders are one of my favorite types of soup – the flavor reminds me of sitting by the ocean! I love making soup or stew any time of the year. This chowder is full of delicious veggies and big chunks of salmon (yum). Fresh dill ties the whole dish together! Serve this with crackers Salmon Chowder

Garlic Shrimp Pappardelle Pasta

Pappardelle pasta is the wider version of a fettuccine noodle and I absolutely love it with seafood, braised short ribs or bolognese sauce. This pasta has comfort food written all over it – garlicky, buttery shrimp with cheesy noodles. To balance it out, add extra greens into the pasta mix or serve some roasted vegetables Garlic Shrimp Pappardelle Pasta
