Salmon Teriyaki

Salmon Teriyaki

On The Grill

Posted on August 05, 2015
I need to eat more seafood. That's a fact. Salmon is still my favorite fish. It's meaty and hearty, fills you up. Being in a mood for Japanese one night, I decided to make Salmon Teriyaki On The Grill. It turned out fantastic. Paired with Vegetable Tempura, we had a meal made in grilling heaven.

How To Cook A Whole Lobster

How To Cook A Whole Lobster

The easy way to cook your first live lobster

Posted on June 10, 2015
With June being Soul Food Month, World Oceans Day June 8th and National Lobster Day on June 15th, I ended up with Lobster on the brain. Having never done a whole live lobster before, I needed to know How To Cook A Whole Lobster. I started where most people do, by shouting "To the Googles!!!" and running to the computer. After youTube-ing a few videos, it seemed easy enough. Boiling water, toss it in. Now we needed to find one. There's generally a live tank at most good grocers, but you want to make sure that you talk to the person at the counter. If they have no idea, go somewhere else. We hit the jackpot on our first try and got Pinchy. It was a little too early for a lobster dinner when we got her home, so we just let her run around until we were ready to cook. Introduced her to the cats, made her feel at home. Okay not really. I was hoping for a little Captain Kirk vs. Gorn action with the cats and Pinchy, but they were indifferent, so she went into her little box and chilled out in the fridge until dinner.

Blackened Catfish

Blackened Catfish

All that is blackened is not burnt

Posted on June 03, 2015
June is National Soul Food Month, so I did some research into what foods were considered to be Soul Food. Blackened Catfish was very close to the top of the list, and I definitely thought "I could grill that". And grill I did! Buttery and flavorful, you would be surprised, blackened is not burned, or at least not burnt tasting. And we paired it with rice and lemon for a very awesome meal. Catfish, for those like me, who don't really do the seafood thing, is definitely a fishy flavored fish but it's not overpowering. I quite liked it. Not only that, but this recipe turned out to be super fast and pretty darn easy to make too!

Cast Iron Halibut

Cast Iron Halibut

With Lemon And Garlic

Posted on February 03, 2015
You know, for the longest time I thought that Halibut was only for deep frying, but this Cast Iron Halibut With Lemon And Garlic is tender, flaky, and just the right amount of fishy for me. You know, when it doesn't make your house smell like a day on the wharf, but instead, imbues everything with the most delightful herby-garlic scent that makes everything all better. Well until you inevitably need a whole flippin' chocolate cake. Oh? It's only myself and the Baron (My Husband) who require chocolate after garlic?

Buttery Grilled Snapper

Buttery Grilled Snapper

With Grilled Veggie Salad

Posted on September 09, 2014

I needed a whitefish for a lunch recipe at work. Yep. I grill, at work, on the job, feeding the people in the office. That is what I do, when I'm not typing. I have the best job. 

Okay I digress. Needed fish. Needed something different. So, pacing in front of the seafood counter in the local supermarket, I asked for a reasonably priced fish that I could get a lot of right then and there. The kind person who helped me suggested the Rockfish. Yep. Still new to the seafood world I goggled at her. What's a rockfish? It doesn't sound that great. Maybe a little hard. (ba dum) You may know it as Black Snapper. And this is how you grill it up quickly for a fantastic meal.

Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

Grilled Swordfish Kebabs

Fresh ingredients make the difference here

Posted on September 09, 2014

I needed something to make for dinner one night. I was perusing the seafood isle at my local grocer while waiting in line for the deli attendant when I saw a gigantic swordfish steak sitting there pretty as you please. The skin was still on it, smooth and shiny, a dark green-ish-black-y-blue, and the colour was bright. It looked kinda good. The price was right too. So I snagged that lonely steak and capered home with my find.

Grilled Salmon Sandwiches

Grilled Salmon Sandwiches

A Toasty Take On Fish Sandwiches

Posted on August 18, 2014

My husband's granny used to pack him salmon sandwiches for lunch. Like tuna salad sandwiches, only with canned salmon. I know, not a great way to start a blog post, especially if you're like me and don't really find the sound of that appealing at all. But these Salmon Sandwiches are made with fresh salmon, seasoned lightly and grilled gently for a lovely smokey flavor. Then they're flaked with some light mayonnaise and placed onto bread that has been lovingly toasted. Doesn't that sound more appealing?

This was such a beautiful looking meal, I almost hated to eat it. Then I realized that I was famished and devoured it with the fervour of my chubby cat, Hubert, who insists we don’t feed him. Basically I attacked this dinner and relished every moment of the flaky, meaty, deliciousness. What have you cooked that you almost didn’t want to eat because it was so beautiful?

Cedar Planked Salmon

Cedar Planked Salmon

with Scallop Crust

Posted on March 04, 2014
Salmon is the common name for several species and sub-species of fish, including trout. It is not fishy tasting like some aquatic animals can be, but rather hearty and meaty when cooked correctly. It has been known as "the chicken of the sea" by many for its non-fishy flavouring.

Grilled Beef Tenderloin With Lobster Tails

Grilled Beef Tenderloin With Lobster Tails

Surf 'n' Turf

Posted on September 09, 2013

I love visiting my Grandmother-in-law. We have a fantastic time, and I am one of the privileged few that are allowed to use her kitchen. She loves it when I cook for her, I always make something different, and she always thoroughly enjoys it. This weekend's amazing meal was surf 'n' turf. Grilled beef tenderloin steaks with lobster tails basted with butter and garlic. Granny ate a whole steak, a lobster tail and had seconds on potatoes and veggies! This meal was very delicious, but a little pricy. Good beef costs money but it's totally worth it.

I was very lucky and got the lobster tails on sale. This will be the second official time that I have eaten lobster. Yes I know, I have it on the site, but I make it for others to enjoy. I just remember my first experience from my childhood. I was at daycare and only maybe two. The babysitter was having lobster for dinner and offered me a piece to try. I did not like the texture or the flavour and ran immediately for the garbage to spit it out. Really that was my first experience with seafood ever, and one that apparently scared me for life. (Therapy session much?) Anyway, I am working through it now, and had a very successful experience with the lobster tails. They're beefy for a seafood, a little on the rubbery side but something I will definitely try again.
