Fried Clam Po’Boy with Homemade Remoulade

I was in my late 20s when I first had a po’boy sandwich. Don’t make fun of my! I’m a northern girl, so I never even saw it on a menu anywhere until I moved to Virginia. These days, we live near an ocean fishing pier, which is home to a cute little restaurant with […]

Easy New England Clam Chowder in Toasted Bread Bowls

I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade recipes. You don’t have to cook everything 100% from scratch to give your family a tasty, satisfying meal. Life is too short to spend every waking moment in the kitchen. Sandra Lee is of course the queen of semi-homemade recipes. I picked up a few of her cookbooks, and […]

Shrimp Pasta with Spinach Cashew Pesto

The last time we went shopping, they had these big, beautiful shrimp on sale. They were cleaned, cooked, and peeled… so I just couldn’t resist buying a bag of them. Seriously, when the hardest part of working with shrimp is figuring out what awesome recipe to make with them, life is pretty good. In true […]

Asian Sesame Salmon #HotSummerEats

I grew up in the very land-locked state of Pennsylvania, so we didn’t eat much seafood. When I did have it, it was typically some kind of frozen fish patty. Appetizing, I know. On special occasions, my mom would make shrimp (YUM), but it wasn’t until I moved to Virginia that fish became a regular […]

Budget-Friendly Seafood Salad #HotSummerEats

I love fresh seafood salad in the summer. It makes such a perfect lunch alone or stuffed in a pita pocket. But… Seafood is expensive. I’d love to eat seafood several times per week, but our monthly food budget would be maxed out in a week if we did that. When I joined #HotSummerEats (read […]

Parmesan Crusted Fish

This recipe is a real winner. If you’re on a budget, seafood can seem out of reach, but with this recipe you can purchase the cheaper types of fish and still get a tasty meal. For this recipe, I used swai, which is a kind of fish from Asia that is similar to U.S. farmed […]

Feast of the Seven Fishes Recipes

Our family isn’t Italian, nor are with Catholic, but I absolutely love the Feast of the Seven Fishes tradition. I was first introduced to this through my ex-boyfriend’s mother, who is both Italian and Catholic. In their culture, you eat copious amounts of seafood on Christmas Eve. According to Wikipedia, “the traditional Biblical number for […]

Salmon Packets with Lemon Butter

I’m not a fan of salmon. It’s okay I guess. But I am a fan of really easy recipes that make almost no dishes dirty! So I just had to try these salmon pouch thingies, as pinned here. maybe this would be the recipe to change my mind about salmon! I originally saw them pinned […]
