I don’t always make Mexican food at home, because Bryan’s families are from El Salvador. We can easily eat those similar tasty food from Bryan’s mom. But when I make “Mexican” food, they are usually not very authentic and very different. This tostada is the perfect example. When I saw this recipe in Bev Cooks, I hesitated for a moment. Tostada traditionally is fried and it definitely does not top with guacamole. Because of the beautiful looking pictures and tasty combination, I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be amazing. The tortilla was crispy and great with melting cheese. The guacamole was creamy. Shrimps were well seasoned and meaty. These tostadas are good as main dish and good to serve with salad or veggies.
I stumbled upon this fish pie recipe online a while back. I just love it! It is like a shepherd’s pie, but with fish. I searched around online and found out that fish pie is a traditional British dish. Although this recipe is not completely the same as the original one. This is absolutely delicious. Flakey fish with creamy mashed potatoes and sweet vegetables all in one dish. Hope you will like this.
When I say fish taco, you probably would think of the fried crispy fish on a corn tortilla with some lettuce. This fish taco is not the fried kind, but it is absolutely delicious and satisfying. I love the hint of smokiness from the Spanish paprika. The slightly tangy coleslaw, the flaky cod and the creamy avocado were the perfect combination. Juicy fish and crunchy coleslaw. Excellent healthy meal. Enjoy!
We are in strawberries season right now. It is hard not to make something with these sweet little strawberries. Salmon with strawberries? Seems a bit odd. The salsa was a bit sweet and sour. It helped to cut the fattiness of the salmon. It was actually a good combination. This is something unique and different for your good old salmon. It is a definitely worth a try!
My mother-in-law gave Bryan and I some shrimps. And, I wasn’t sure what I can make. I went online and found this wonderful shrimp scampi recipe. There maybe a lot of ingredients, but at least, everything is being cooked in the oven. I don’t have to stand over the stove. The best part about this recipe was the topping. The crispy panko and crunchy shallots gave the dish some texture. All the herbs brought out tons of flavors, and the shrimps shined through. It is a beautiful and delicious dish to please your guests.
This recipe is from Bryan’s mom. Bryan has been eating this growing up. I believe this is a Salvadoran dish or Salvadoran inspired dish. One time, Bryan made me this ceviche, and I just fallen in love. The ceviche was sweet and fresh. The crispy tostadas gave some great texture. Yummmm….. Bryan and I usually just made a big bowl of ceviche, and just ate tons of ceviche tostadas for dinner. But, I am sure you can serve this as an appetizer. Give this a try!
Bryan and I have discovered the love of crab cakes in recent years. We would always order the crab cakes as appretizer when we are in restaurants. The sad thing is that the crab cakes usually come in two, and they are very small. It is hard to be satisfied. And of course, it is pretty pricey. Now, I have found this very easy crab cake recipe, I can make our own during any time of the years. This recipe can make 8 crab cakes, so Bryan and I don’t have to fight for them anymore. Hmmm….. So delicious!
Salmon is great for you, and it is very tasty. This dish looks fantastic, which is great for special occasions and friends gathering. The salmon was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It was moist and delicious. The pea puree brought some sweetness to the dish, and the lemon broth gave the dish some tangy flavors. I made this dish for Bryan’s birthday dinner, and he loved it.
This recipe is very easy and healthy. You can do this in 30 minutes. In the original recipe, rosemary and caper are being used. But Bryan and I both don’t like those two things much. I switched to thyme. It was perfectly fine and delicious. The salmon was moist and soft. This is a great light dinner.
I like fish. But sometimes, it is not easy to cook a good piece of fish. The fish always turn rough and mushy. Salmon is probably the easiest to handle, and it is ok to be eaten raw. Recently, I found out that I really like crusted fish. The crust gives the fish some crunch. Love the texture! This panko-crusted salmon is very good. It is so simple and easy. It can be done in less than 30 minutes.
