Szechuan Shrimp & Eggplant

I bought Iceberg lettuce for the first time…like ever. I must admit, I was kind of embarrassed. I had a basket (I buy less if I carry it, as opposed to push it) full of vegetables and I was…


Citrus Scallop Summer Salad

Not to worry, I’m not asking you to go out and spend the big bucks on the mack daddy U-10 scallops. Instead, I stuck my lowly head in the freezer section of my local conventional (real food exists outside…


Spicy Mango Mahi Mahi

I’m pretty sure this is the first seafood/fish recipe I’ve posted in about 6 months. Oops. We just don’t eat that much fish. Not that I don’t like it, it’s just hard  to find any decent, not previously frozen options…

Seafood Soups

Fennel & Fish Chowder

Super quick fish chowder. I used cod because it’s a firm, meaty, flaky fish that’s pretty easy on the budget and difficult to overcook. I even found it wild-caught in the freezer section of the grocery store. Besides using…
