Classic Salmon Patties

Classic Salmon Patties

An unexpected pantry find that ticks a lot of boxes. I must admit to some trepidation when I came across this recipe in Southern Living. My experience with canned salmon was limited to our Nanny of not-too-fond memory. Her idea of a perfect lunch was…

Lemon Spaghetti with Genova Tuna and Breadcrumbs

Lemon Spaghetti with Genova Tuna and Breadcrumbs

This dish may be the least expensive meal we’ve ever featured. This recipe has so much going for it. It’s hard to how budget-friendly it is. The total cost of the dish was $15.51.  Break that down and if you’re serving four, it’s $3.82 per…

Eric Ripert’s Striped bass in Savoy cabbage with Bacon-Butter sauce

Eric Ripert’s Striped bass in Savoy cabbage with Bacon-Butter sauce

Chef Eric Ripert I love it when Eric Ripert comes on television and performs his wizardry with fish.  Here, delicious white flaky Striped Bass is the perfect partner for the leafy green cabbage and the crisp bacon and butter sauce.  Around Thanksgiving, I think it’s…

Smoked Salmon Lasagna from Michaela Kitchin

Smoked Salmon Lasagna from Michaela Kitchin

Tom Kitchin may be a famous Scottish Chef but this is his wife’s recipe. This is the kind of recipe I call true comfort food. The traditional lasagna element of bechamel is used here. But instead of an Italian-style filling, there’s a nod to this…

Blackenend Swordfish with Fresh Tomato Chutney

Swordfish is wonderful cooked like this. In no time at all, you have something satisfying and truly special. It’s good enough for company and a terrific treat for everyone. We ate it all summer in Nantucket while I was growing up. It was simply grilled…

Baja Fish Tacos with Avocado Salsa and Slaw

A Trip to California and an unforgettable food discovery. The first time I had this soft tortilla shell stuffed with crispy, beer-battered cod topped with avocado salsa, pico de gallo, and slaw, I was hooked.  The crispiness of the fish was irresistible. The soft flour…

In the pantheon of amazingly quick and easy things to cook, there is the salmon filet.  This lovely rosy fish cooks in all of 6 minutes depending on how pink you like it.  And 6 ounces is a gracious serving.  We can have the discussion…

Bobby Flay’s Salmon Burgers with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce

Bobby Flay’s Salmon Burgers with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce

I like Bobby Flay.  For quite a few years, I worked above his ‘store’. That would be his late lamented Mesa Grill. At Mesa, his take on Southwestern cuisine virtually introduced New York to the flavors of that part of the country.  Of course, along…

Pan-Seared Trout with Prosciutto and Chile Garlic Oil from Chef Alex Raij in Food and Wine Magazine

Pan-Seared Trout with Prosciutto and Chile Garlic Oil from Chef Alex Raij in Food and Wine Magazine

Navarra, tucked up under France in Spain. I’ll often ask Andrew if he has any requests for dinner.  Most of the time he leaves me to my own devices.  But when he does ask for something, I jump. This recipe is the result of his…

Salt and Pepper Salmon with Smashed Potatoes, Peas, Lemon, Pearl Onions and Mint

I’d go back to Ireland in a New York minute, but it wouldn’t be for the food. We never got anywhere near Darina Allen’s Culinary Course and aside from a wonderful Thanksgiving feast that we prepared ourselves, a dinner at Fallon and Byrne in Dublin…
