This is hands down my favorite recipe for grilling seafood. Shrimp and Mahi Mahi kabobs are marinated, skewered and grilled. In the center, you’ll find my Green Rice, which will be my next recipe post.
It’s not all buffalo burgers, elk steaks and Rocky Mountain oysters out here in the wild wild west..We can plate up an elegant dinner with the best of ‘em and especially if beautiful sea scallops are available. Let’s take a look at this delicious recipe I found over at Food and Wine.
We thought this dish was spectacular. Restaurant quality, elegant and (shhhh)…pretty e-a-s-y. Serve this for a special dinner for two, or for a dinner party and your guests will think you’ve just graduated from culinary school.
The New Year’s Eve Tradition around our house is a quiet evening at home with a nice meal and a movie. Osso Buco is always the star on the menu but the supporting cast may change from year to year. After pouring through numerous cookbooks and databases below you’ll find my final selections for this year’s New Year’s Eve recipes that ended up for dinner at home.
Scallop Sandwiches for two: These are one of my favorite little appetizers to make. Just sear four sea scallops in a fry pan in olive oil until cooked through. Cut the scallops in half and build your little sandwich:
ok, I DO NOT want to hear any whining! We can’t eat cheeseburgers and macaroni and cheese everyday!
dog-gone-it, sometimes we have to eat our fresh seasonal vegetables.
Tyler Florence has just appeared on my radar. I don’t know much about him, know the name, know he’s a celebrity chef…that’s about it. I’ve subscribed to his blog, have noticed the Tyler Florence Friday club on some blogs, and decided to try my first Tyler Florence recipe.
I’m starting to think that when Tyler Florence says “Preheat your ovens“ we should say ”How High?“. (get it? a play on jump…how high) Man does he put out some tasty looking recipes.
Since it’s the season I decided to try Tyler Florence’s roasted vegetable recipe. So let’s put down those hamburger buns, put the mustard and catsup back in the fridge and let’s roast some vegetables.
Despite their name, Champagne grapes aren’t used to make the sparkling wine. Legend has it that the grapes were so named because the tiny grapes resemble bubbles in a glass of champagne. Let’s take a look at this elegant dinner.
What a way to kick off the 4th of July holiday! We enjoyed a fabulous dinner last night, fresh, delicious, pretty and healthy. Shrimp Ceviche and Salad. First of all let me say that my cilantro and parsley in my garden are now large enough to use. I planted both by seed on May 10. The silly wabbit ate my basil, so I had to purchase a fully grown plant to replace it. It felt so good to walk out to the garden and pick fresh herbs to use in this meal.
Well, I must say I out did myself with this one. I decided to jump on the Pine Nut Vinaigrette bandwagon since I’ve been seeing it everywhere lately. I’m glad I did – delicious. I have two recipes and decided to use the one that Michele posted. Very good! You’ll find the recipe at the end of this post.
This scallop salad recipe was easy to prepare, healthy, fresh, pretty and absolutely delicious. What more could you ask for.
Whenever someone prepares an entree for me, I add it to my recipe database and name the meal after them. So this delicious and easy recipe is hereinfater referred to as Cauleen’s Scallops with Orange Cream Sauce. Wine pairing: 2006 New Zealand Kim Crawford Sauv. Blanc; perfect. This wine was on the Wine Spectator top 100 list last year. Not too expensive and can be easily found. If you can’t find the 2006, any vintage of this wine will be good.
