Shrimp Diablo

A few months ago, Josh and I tried shrimp diablo at a local restaurant and have been dreaming about it ever since. The flavors were so fresh and inviting, without being overly spicy. What I love about this meal is that it comes together so quickly and it’s versatile. Feel free to serve the shrimp […]

Tortilla Chip Crusted Tilapia with Sriracha Lime Mayo

Like many of you I’ve been using this time to clean everything, including my pantry. It’s been great to see what I have on-hand and figure out different ways to use it. I found a bag of tortilla chips that was mostly crushed and figured those chips would make a perfect coating for the tilapia […]

Brown Butter Scallops with Thyme and Pink Peppercorns

Love is in the air (or maybe that’s just the brown butter I’m smelling…). Valentine’s day can be stressful when trying to plan the perfect meal, but it doesn’t have to be. I am always up for staying in and cooking rather than trying to make a reservation at a fancy restaurant.These scallops are SO […]

Pan-Seared Halibut with Citrus Salsa

Halibut is one of my favorite fishes because it’s so meaty, not very “fishy” and it develops a beautiful crust when pan-seared. A light, fruity topping like this citrus salsa is the perfect compliment (especially this time of year when citrus is in season). Serve this with steamed veggies and/or quinoa for a refreshing meal with […]

Garlic Shrimp and Rainbow Veggie Foil Packs

Foil pack meals are some of my absolute favorites, mainly because they are so incredibly easy to clean-up. But, beyond that, this cooking method is a great way to seal in flavor and keep food juicy (especially shrimp and fish). This meal is so light and refreshing, yet super filling as well. If you want […]

Pan-Seared Salmon with Cranberry-Fig Sauce

With the holidays right around the corner, I love coming up with festive dishes that don’t take all day to prepare. Cranberries were a big staple in my family growing up. I’m reminded of this every time they go on sale and my dad has around 30 bags in his freezer, haha! But they are […]

Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp Skewers with Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Our grill has gotten a lot of use lately since we both have been super busy and want dinner on the table fast (and we are taking advantage of the fact that grilling is still an option!). With that said, I still don’t want to sacrifice flavor or nutrition with our quick meals. This meal […]

Baked Salmon with Crunchy Pecan Crust

Salmon is a favorite in our household because it’s not only delicious and healthy, but it cooks super quickly so dinner is on the table in no time. It can be prepared in numerous ways, but this one is definitely one of the best (especially if you have people who don’t typically like salmon). I like […]

Citrus Butter Sea Bass in Parchment

If you’re a citrus fan like me, then you will love this dish. I pumped up the flavor of the butter with a ton of citrus zest and the fish just marinates in that delicious as it cooks in the parchment paper. This recipe is super simple yet elegant, making it a great option for […]

Garlic Shrimp and Sausage with Cheddar Oats

I’m a huge fan of shrimp and grits, and with a New Orleans trip right around the corner, I can’t wait to try all the comfort food down there. At a recent trip to Costco, I discovered these quick-cooking steel cut oats and I was intrigued. Normally steel cut oats take so long to cook […]
