Restaurants are a dime a dozen, everywhere you go. However, not every place is a hit and sometimes we are just unsure what restaurants to try while on vacation. Anytime we are away from home, we always want to know about the best local spots to try. Here are 5 local Cape Cod Restaurants to try!
My husband and I challenged ourselves to just eat seafood and no meat. We enjoy challenging ourselves each month with different goals. Check out my Challenge Yourself Once A Month post for ideas. This month we challenged ourselves to no meat for a month! Well, we did agree to eat steak for Father's Day. Therefore, we completed a full 2 weeks without meat! Here are 4 fishes to try and meal ideas! (No Meat Challenge!)
Memorial Day is around the corner and the weather has been great. This time around, it is going to be a big celebration here in Massachusetts, as our governor is removing all COVID restrictions, starting on May 29th. Just in time for Memorial Day. Because the weather is so nice, I have started using my grill. I made a Citrus Grilled Snapper, that I have to share with you. And I thought, this would be a great meal to make on the grill. Healthy and so satisfying!
Corn, Kale and Tomato Salad served with lemon pepper salmon. This salad contains just 3 ingredients! Easy, delicious and perfect to serve with salmon. This is one of those dishes that are perfect to make any day, but especially on those busy weeknights. I love to cook but sometimes it feels like a chore instead [...]
My last post was a Blackened Chicken Salad with Feta Cheese recipe. Today's recipe, is a Blackened Shrimp Salad with Red Kidney Beans. Same seasoning but a completely different salad. It is a perfect salad for meatless Monday! Shrimp is great to make during the week since it cooks in under 8 minutes tops. This [...]
Salt and pepper shrimp is pretty tasty. Especially when it's fried. Truth is I don't fry food because of all the extra oil it takes to cook food and the smell of the oil. I prefer to bake or broil food instead of frying. For this recipe, I decided not to bread the shrimp. What would salt and pepper shrimp taste without the fried breading. After all it's one of those appetizers that you can't really say no to. Well I decided to take a chance and make salt and pepper shrimp (served 2 ways) in healthier way. Minus all the sodium in the salt! You really can't make salt and pepper shrimp without the salt!
Aside from salmon being my favorite fish to eat, I'd say tilapia is my second favorite. Why? Well, just like salmon, you can serve it with just about anything. There is salad, tacos, serve with a side of rice and vegetables, and the list goes on. I probably make this at least once a week. And honestly, I rarely make the same exact meal with tilapia. I am always coming up with new ideas on how to serve it. Two great things about tilapia is that it cooks in just about 7 minutes tops and it's an affordable fish! Many believe that fish is too expensive to buy every week, but it is actually cheaper than chicken or beef. It is also easier to digest! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed! This week I made chili honey tilapia salad & dressing.
Winter holidays come with heavy meals. That is why fish is a good option. A fish you don't have quite often. The new year is here. Why not start off with a healthy meal to celebrate! I had wanted snapper for quite some time. When I called my local Whole Foods they told me they had 10 lbs of snapper in stock and that I should reserve the amount I wanted for pick up. I purchased 3 lbs and had it cleaned and filleted. My plan was to make snapper with pineapple salsa. This dish took me a total of 24 minutes, including the pineapple salsa. While the snapper was cooking, I made the salsa.
