Baked Salmon With Gingered Rhubarb

Tangy rhubarb, bright ginger, and mellow onions are the perfect accompaniment to one of my favorite kinds of fish. This excellent dish is an adaptation (with very little change) of a recipe I found at Taste of Home. The day I made it, I was using up some rhubarb I had left over from baking Rhubarb…

Tuna Salad

Comfort food, summer style! Okay, it’s not one of my healthier recipes, which is why I only make it once or twice a year. It’s not awful, my nutrition app gives it a C-, but let’s face it: mayo. Plenty of mayo. But it’s childhood memories plus make-ahead plus wicked easy plus easily doubled to…

Shrimpagus

​ Fresh herbs and asparagus make this one-bowl meal a real treat! You’ll need two pots, though, because it’s especially good served over pasta. I used whole wheat spaghetti for an extra kick of fiber. The meal is so delicious and satisfying, nobody will guess that it took you less than half an hour or…

Halibut, Asparagus, & Potatoes With Cherry Tomato Salsa

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…

Killer Shrimp

I love the flavor of this broth! It’s robust and has a nice kick to it. Once you’re done with the broth, the rest of the dish takes only about five minutes. The broth can take two hours but is truly worth it. Most of that time it’s just simmering away so you can be…

Shrimp with Peas & Seasoned Rice

This delicious, paella-inspired dish is pure magic! Whether you cook it right away or freeze it for later, and whether you cook it on your stovetop or in your Instant Pot, the ease and speed with which you get dinner on the table will amaze your friends and family. On those days when you’re too…
