Halibut, Asparagus, & Potatoes With Cherry Tomato Salsa

I’m thrilled to be able to make this again! It’s such an old recipe that I have no idea where it came from. I only made it once all those years ago. We loved it, but our range hood wasn’t up to the task. With the bedroom and laundry room directly upstairs from the kitchen,…

Alder-Planked Fluke With Bold Spice Rub

  It’s been a constant struggle to find good-quality fresh fish around here. Every time I think I’ve found a good source, the quality there goes slowly downhill until I can’t bear to shop there anymore. There’s one place that’s reliable more often than not, but it’s pretty far from my house in a direction…

It’s being replaced in many places by Sichuan, which is from the Pinyin system developed in and used by China in…

Grilled Lemon-Bay Shrimp

Fresh, bright, delicious! This is one of my favorite recipes for the summer. It’s so simple, but the way the bay and lemon complement the shrimp is just perfect. It’s really easy to make, too. Sometimes I buy my shrimp already peeled and deveined because it saves a fair amount of time and effort. If…
