I was watching a video on better butter chicken and thought it would be a great way to try this on my granddaughter.  She is picky with seafood but loves chicken.  This paleo seafood dish was a hit and tilapia is so mild I think she thought it was chicken!  A healthy fake-out!

Blackened Seared Yellow Tail Snapper with Sautéed Vegetables

In Florida we can get some amazing fresh fish.  While at the market I spotted Yellow Tail Snapper wild caught and local.  I had all of the other ingredients to make this amazing dinner for 2.  This is a great dinner if you are following the Paleo diet or a healthy Mediterranean diet

Note:  You don't have to buy blackened seasonings as I am sure all of the spices are at home in your cabinet.  

Julienne is a knife cut where you slice long strips and keep them all in the same length.

I was thrilled to try a variety of Healthy Solutions Spice Blends. While at my local fish store the sea bass just look beautiful and I immediately knew I wanted to prepare this for my husband cajun style. How great that all of the spices I needed to make this dish is in one package.

Give my Cajun Sea Bass a try using  Shelly’s Healthy Solutions Spice Blends.

Cajun Shrimp Burgers

While visiting my sisters for my niece Cayce’s college graduation from Baylor University we had a great time together. Cayce asked me if we could make something with fish together. After naming a few ideas we came up with Cajun Shrimp Burgers. Everyone here in Texas likes it hot…

It was great having some one-on-one time with Cayce as we made these yummy burgers. We made 5 with 1 pound of shrimp and while we were enjoying them it was mentioned that these would also make a great appetizer.

The cajun mayonnaise made these burgers even more amazing. We all loved this lunch together! Give this recipe a try…

Cooking Tip!  Heat your BGE to a medium-high temperature.  place your cast iron pan on the center of the grill.  Once hot add in a little oil then cook your shrimp burgers and enjoy.

Cod Florentine

This recipe is not only delicious, but beautiful to the eye! Italians do not eat with their eyes but if it looks beautiful, we know it will taste wonderful! You can use cod, haddock, flounder, or any other white flaky fish for this recipe. I just love the spinach, garlic, and combination of herbs to make this a perfect dinner!

A huge thank you to City Fish as they provided all of the seafood for my cookbook.

Creamy Salmon Piccata and Pasta

We have been on the go for all of December and tonight I felt like a comfort salmon dish.  I am starting HEWfit in a few weeks and decided salmon and pasta was a perfect dinner for us.  As an Italian pasta was always a frequent visitor but over the past several years it makes a rare appearance.  When we do eat pasta it's a small amount.  Tonight the salmon will be the star but it will be yummy for us to enjoy!  

Go ahead and give this recipe a try!  I bet it would also be great with spaghetti squash too.

I was going through my spices and decided to use Cumin for dinner. I am always going for the Italian spices and thought it was time to switch it up a little. Grabbed a jar of Cumin and Paprika and this is what happened in my kitchen!

PS - We love being back in town and able to shop at the best seafood store around!  

Easy Blackened Pan Seared Red Snapper

Easy Blackened Pan Seared Red Snapper

Seriously! This is the easiest blackened pan seared snapper you will ever make.  This is also amazing.  I served it with haricots vert topped with fried shallots.  I will share that now.

Take a sauté pan over medium heat.  Add in 2-3 tablespoons of oil.  Once the oil is very hot (how do you know it's very hot did you ask?  Great questions - when the oil starts to move to the side of the pan)  Toss in thinly sliced shallots and cook until crispy.  Remove from pan.  Keep oil in the pan.  When ready to make the haricots vert add them to the hot pan with some garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook until tender, remove from pan and top with shallots.  

Next tip! Did you know most seafood departments will provide the seasonings.  Yes, that is true.  We got this snapper at Whole Foods and they seasoned for us.  How easy was that... 

Enjoy xo

Easy Grilled Spicy Shrimp

I am not a big shrimp fan!  Not sure why but it's true..   However my new easy grilled spicy shrimp has been a summer favorite and so easy with all of the entertaining we do at the lake house!  I even made some guacamole with a bunch of fresh avocados I had on the counter!  WOW what a hit...

At the lake we love to entertain but I love EASY! I also want to enjoy the water activities, sitting with my friends and family and just loving life. I want to make something that will dazzle my guests without a lot of fuss. I created this appetizer with leftover shrimp I had in the freezer, 2 avocados in the refrigerator and 1/2 jar of salsa that I just love!

 

Easy Grilled Tuna

Easy Grilled Tuna

This recipe is super easy and absolutely delicious. I topped the tuna with some of the puttanese I made and it was a perfect dinner!

Cindy’s little secret: I took the tuna and added the olive oil, salt and pepper (and some minced garlic) and slipped it into a sealed container and in the refrigerator for 3 hours then took out and let come to room temperature while the grill was heating.

Of course the fish came from City Fish, Wethersfield, CT which is the best seafood in Connecticut!

I love canning green beans and having them all season to enjoy. I wanted to test out a new recipe using Mom's Gourmet and this was a hit. The best part was it took me 30 minutes from the time I stepped into the kitchen until it was served to my husband!  Thanks to City Fish for the amazing fresh shrimp!

If you don't have Feather Dust then I will list below the ingredients but I recommend you go and get some!
