Warm toasted barley salad with blood orange vinaigrette and roast shrimp is an easy and elegant option for lunch or dinner. I’ve been on a whole grain kick ever since making those sweet potato and quinoa fritters that I shared the other day. This weekend, I went a little nuts in the bulk bins of the local co-op. […]
A satisfying seafood stew based on the sunny flavors of Provence, France. The #SundaySupper movement is turning 2 and this week we’re celebrating with a virtual birthday party! I only started participating in early 2013, but it’s one of my favorite blogging events – and has inspired a lot of my favorite recipes. I really […]
Soup season is here! Soup season is here!
This creamy Thai corn chowder is the perfect way to bridge the gap between summer and fall. It has a fresh, almost floral flavor that highlights the last of summer’s sweet corn, and a thick velvety texture that’s super cozy and luxurious. I love it! And I love it even more knowing that it can be on the table in just about a half an hour (and that 20 minutes of that it just simmering the broth!)
I’ve been participating in #SundaySupper for a few months now and I absolutely love it. Now that I’ve learned the ropes, I decided to join in the other part of the movement: #WeekdaySupper.
I still remember the first time I ate fish tacos, way back when I lived in DC. I had seen them in an advertisement and decided that I absolutely had to have them for lunch. I walked about three-quarters of a mile (in heels!) to the place that had them and put in my order. After waiting for what felt like forever, I was presented with greasy fried fish in gummy tortillas. So disappointing. Totally not worth the achy feet (or the $10).
Thankfully, that was several years ago so I’ve had lots of time to perfect my own recipe. These tacos are nothing like those other ones. Instead of being heavy and greasy, they’re light and fresh. The fish is marinated in a mix of citrus juices and spices and then grilled. Stuff that into some grilled flour tortillas and top it with spicy pickled onions (one of my favorite condiments ever) and salsa verde for a simple, fresh meal that reminds me of the beach.
