Seared Scallops and Herb Butter Sauce

These scallops (recipe here) were really easy and tasty. I don’t know why, though, the recipe says to use a separate saucepan to make the sauce. I would take advantage of all of the crusty caramelizing in the shallot pan and just make the sauce in there. I suppose since this sauce is kind of […]

Shrimp Florentine Pasta

This was SO fast and easy (recipe here.) Very tasty, too. Even Hubby, who has historically not been a big shellfish fan, loved it. Filling and healthy and VERY fast to make.

Mustard-Roasted Fish, Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli, Dill Fingerling Potatoes

Recipes here. I made all of the recipes out of this episode of Ina Garten’s show, except for the dessert, and they were all wonderful. I’ve always had good luck with her recipes and I really did have this on the table, start-to-finish, as Ina promised, in one hour.

The scallops recipe is from the subscription-only section of Fine Cooking’s website, but basically, you just cook the scallops in a VERY HOT lightly oiled pan (after sprinkling them with a tiny bit of cayenne and salt) until they’re browned on both sides and opaque throughout and then you lightly […]

Soft-Shelled Crabs Meunière

Recipe here.  Please pardon the crummy cell-phone photo. Making these recently at my best friend’s house in the mid-Atlantic region (during high soft-shelled season) is what gave me the courage to attempt the Sole Meunière.  Yum.  Yum.  Yum.  Soft-shelled crabs are one of my all-time favorite foods.  Paramount is getting the freshest crabs available.  Unfortunately, […]

Classic Sole Meunière

Recipe here. This is one of my favorite “fancy restaurant” meals, but I’ve never attempted it at home before.  I’m SO glad that I did, because it was super easy and VERY delicious.  I think that the recipe’s suggestion to buy a couple of extra fillets is a good one, because it does take a […]
