Salmon Wasabi Burgers

Posted on March 19, 2014

Salmon Wasabi Burgers are perfect if you adore spicy food, and enjoy the pungent, hot taste of wasabi and ginger. I make these spicy burgers with wild caught salmon and just a few other healthy ingredients, and serve them sans buns. When I do need a bun, I use lettuce or other greens as a serving vehicle for my burger recipes, and find that crispy Romaine lettuce works especially well. Boston, or bibb lettuce also works superbly for this purpose.

I serve these Salmon Wasabi Burgers with my Asian Cole Slaw recipe, the flavor combination is absolutely fabulous, and this is how I depicted these fish burgers in the photo above!

Serve tangy Mustard Lime Chicken for dinner with a side of asparagus, or any other healthy green vegetable.

I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes for chicken breast, so I was mighty happy when a reader left this comment on my post for grilled Mustard Lime Chicken:

Fantastic chicken! Our son was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease about one month ago, and I have to tell you that your recipes have been such a help. We all loved the […]

Thai Vegetable Soup: Everyday Chef Challenge

Posted on September 15, 2010

I’m thrilled to be a part of Pacific Natural Foods’ Everyday Chef Challenge!  For the first round of the competition, $5 Dinners, Aggie’s Kitchen, Herbivoracious, A Savory Nest and I will be using a “secret” ingredient along with one of Pacific Natural Foods’ broth products *.

The secret ingredient for this round?  Mushrooms.  I used shiitake, though any type will work for the recipe below.  And I have chosen to use their Organic Vegetable Broth.

Stuffed Peppers

Posted on September 8, 2010

Yesterday, when I compiled my Rosh Hashanah Menu, I promised y’all that I would give out the recipe for my Stuffed Peppers today, and here they are.  I’m glad I made that promise, since it “forced” me to make these gluten free, grain free stuffed peppers for dinner last night, and my husband and I love them.  They’re quite colorful and festive, as you can see in the photo above, and mighty tasty, not to mention high protein.

The idea for […]

Spicy Slaw

Posted on July 26, 2010

I’m slightly obsessed with coleslaw these days, especially any coleslaw made with purple cabbage which I find to be delectably sweet and crunchy.  I’m always craving a good crunch in my food.

I like to serve this spicy slaw with my Turkey Burgers from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook or my Grilled Chipotle Orange Chicken.

Coconut Chicken Soup

Posted on November 9, 2009

This recipe was inspired by Jaden’s Lemongrass Chicken and Coconut Soup from her fabulous book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook.  I received it in the mail on Friday and played with it all weekend long.  It is a captivating book, full of gorgeous pictures (which she styled and shot herself) and easy recipes.  I’m in love.  Last night, I made this Coconut Chicken Soup, Jaden’s Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce (also from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook) and some stir fried broccoli.
