Fish Curry

“This curry was like a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony that I’d once heard…..especially the last movement, with everything screaming and banging ‘Joy.’ It stunned, it made one fear great art.” — Anthony Burgess Thirty-eight years?! Okay, I’m really dating myself here, but as far as I can tell, that’s how long it’s been since I had…

Planked Maple-Molasses Salmon Fillet

Necessity is the mother of invention. — old proverb The first time I made this, it really wasn’t planned. I’d been in an unfamiliar grocery store and realized they had a decent fish department. When you’re standing right in front of the case and can’t smell fish at all, that’s an excellent sign! Just a…

Grilled Opah with Dog Sauce

No dogs were harmed in the making of this meal!  I found this great new fishmonger called Hooked a little while back. Everything there is fresh and sustainably caught, and the people know what they’re talking about. One day, I was looking at all the choices — every last one of which was gorgeous —…

Spicy Sheet Pan Shrimp With Broccoli

“Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it’s a plan!” — The Doctor For once, I actually had a plan for dinner. I’d rediscovered an old recipe for grilled shrimp, and had been looking forward to it all day. How could I forget there was a storm rolling in? Probably it wasn’t so much…

Angry Shrimp

You’re definitely going to want to try this flavor explosion of a one-one-bowl dinner! Probably not on a weeknight after a long day of work, but maybe on game night so you can eat it in front of the TV. Maybe the next time Syracuse plays Pitt in men’s basketball. I always get angry during…

Planked Scallops With Dill, Lemon, & Garlic

This might be the easiest, tastiest scallop recipe you’ll ever make. My Chief Taste Tester says these were the best scallops he’s ever had. Cleanup is a breeze, too!  My stumbling upon the idea was purely pragmatic, although it seems so obvious in retrospect. Some months ago, I wanted to use up some leftover dilly-lemon…

Shrimp Garam Masala

Family favorite! This exciting dish has it all: Bursting with flavor, nutritious, quick, and easy! You’ll want to add this to your weeknight go-to list. I’ve skipped the onions and peppers more than once, either because I ran out of them or of energy, and nobody complained. I like it better with them, but sometimes…

Rosemary-Skewered Shrimp

I came across this recipe years ago (though I don’t recall where) when I was looking for something to use up a lot of rosemary from my garden. Some years, I don’t get much rosemary. It either gets sick or just doesn’t grow very big. Other years, though, there’s more than I can possibly use….
