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!

Sesame Salmon Burgers

Posted on May 10, 2011

These high protein Sesame Salmon Burgers pair nicely with Garlic Ginger Bok Choy (pictured in background of photo above; stay tuned for recipe next week).

I really like making these quick and easy gluten free burgers because they not only consist of highly nutritious wild salmon (obviously), they’re also packed with superfoods such as garlic, ginger and sesame seeds.  Sometimes I like to prepare the salmon mixture ahead of time (think the night before, so that the flavors can meld into […]

Gefilte Fish

Posted on March 23, 2011

This recipe is based on one by Ellyn Goodrich at epicurious.com, called “Alaskan Halibut and Salmon Gefilte Fish Terrine.” While Goodrich’s recipe makes a gefilte fish “loaf,” mine is for traditional (yet gluten free) gefilte fish balls (like my Bubby made) only with more vegetables, so that they are a bit lighter and healthier than the standard gefilte-fare. What are gefilte fish?

Here is Wikipedia’s definition:

“Yiddish Gefüllte Fisch (Gefilte fish;from German gefüllte “stuffed” fish) (Hebrew: dagim memula’im, literally “filled fish”) is a […]

Roasted Red Pepper Salmon with Spinach

Posted on September 29, 2010

This high protein salmon dish with Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup from Pacific Foods was a big hit with my husband, and children as well.

The sweet, smoky taste of the sauce (which simply uses the above soup) along with healthy spinach and salted salmon, results in a sophisticated entree that is not too challenging to make –a lovely dish that will wow your guests.

Thanks for all of your votes in the first round of Pacific Foods Everyday Chef Challenge!  Because […]

Salmon Kabayaki

Posted on November 11, 2009

There was a shortage of Fish Kabayaki the other night when I made this amazing dish from Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen Cookbook.  I used salmon to make this sweet and tangy fish dish and it was phenomenal.

The boys were unhappy that I did not make more, so tonight I’m making it again and doubling the recipe to 2 pounds of salmon so all can eat to their fill and still have some for leftovers the next night.  I’m making it right […]

Thyme Salmon with Gluten Free Girl’s Leek Coulis

Posted on August 25, 2009

This Leek Coulis is based on a culinary masterpiece from Gluten-Free Girl.  My description will certainly not do it justice and I’m fairly certain my vegan version is only a faint replication of hers.

For a truly mouth watering account of this dish, make sure to read Gluten Free Girl’s delectable post about the culinary wizardry that is the chef’s Leek Coulis.  All I can say on my end, is that I fooled my husband; he had no idea that I […]

Chipotle Lime Salmon

Posted on March 6, 2009

With baseball back in the picture and our afternoons filled with practices I find myself looking for quick entrees that offer a lot of protein without a lot of work. This Chipotle Lime Salmon is one of those. My husband loved it, pronouncing it blog-worthy after his first bite.

Salmon with Mushrooms and Red Pepper Sauce

Posted on December 9, 2008

Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods.  I bought some recently on a trip to the store, though I had no idea what would become of them.

The next day I took out one of my favorite cookbooks, A Cook’s Book of Mushrooms and began to flip through the pages.  I found a great recipe, made a few changes (replacing sugar with stevia, etc.) and whipped it up for dinner.  Although it looks complicated and has a few steps, this recipe […]

Salmon with Cucumber Chile Relish

Posted on April 29, 2008

The salmon series continues, as does my love affair with Cook’s Illustrated. The recipe below is another one that I have adapted from this fantastic magazine.

On the comments front, my cup overfloweth. I am so happy with the participation, support and community that is developing on this site. Recently, one of my favorite readers, Courtney, asked a question about meal planning. If any of you have suggestions, please feel free to offer them to her in […]

Cod Piccata

Posted on March 22, 2008

That troubling question, “what’s for dinner?” troubles no more! Of late I’m feeling quite confident about answering this question, having built up a decent repertoire of main dishes for the family.

Here’s a list of entrées that are getting us through the dinner hour with ease:

Chicken Parm
Chicken Piccata
Rosemary Apple Chicken
Peach Chicken
Cod Piccata
Fish Sticks
Salmon with Olive Anchovy Tapenade
Salmon with Tomato Basil Relish
Pasta with Parsley Pesto and Sundried Tomatoes
Sesame Noodles

I can see that the seafood department needs a bit of work, we […]

Fish Sticks

Posted on February 26, 2008

For some reason, I can’t get out of my winter funk. We’ve had a few beautiful sunny days, yet I still feel as though I need to go into a small cave and hibernate. I feel such a stunting of my creativity during these dark days (we’ve had a lot more dreary ones than sunny) and a complete lack of drive. I think part of it is all of the illnesses that my family has been through during the past […]

Shrimp Cakes

Posted on February 16, 2008

After preparing a plethora of Valentine’s sweets, I once again have post-holiday “dessert burnout” syndrome. Thus, I now find myself constantly craving protein –for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks.

I will be eating a lot of these tasty little seafood patties in this new phase of protein craze. Hence I am delighted to share one of my favorite recipes with you –this one for simple, savory shrimp cakes.

Salmon with Tomato Basil Relish

Posted on February 7, 2008

As I have mentioned here before, I am always looking for inspired ways to eat salmon. First priority, disguising the fishy flavor!

Well, lo and behold, last night as I sat on the couch making my way through the latest issue of Cook’s Illustrated (my dear friend Deb subscribed me as a gift last year), I found a section on cooking salmon. I was so inspired that I decided to test out the recipe for tonight’s dinner.

I do like Cook’s, however […]

Salmon with Anchovy Olive Tapenade

Posted on July 31, 2007

I love to eat salmon. Actually, I love the idea of eating salmon. All those good omega 3’s. Lately, I’ve been on a quest to create salmon toppings that disguise the fishy flavor. Here’s one that worked well.
