Olive Topped Swordfish Steaks

My husband is not a big lover of fish, but there are a few he does enjoy. One of those is swordfish. While I was at the butcher last week, they had some really nice looking swordfish steaks. I had him wrap up a couple for me and I immediately headed to the condiment aisle…

Salmon Tacos

Dennis and I have both been craving salmon, so I decided I’d make salmon for dinner tonight. Dennis asked if we could make salmon tacos and I was all over that. I actually thought about making salmon tacos for Cinco de Mayo, but we ended up going to a great restaurant called Tocaya here in…

Tuna Steaks with Grilled Radicchio Salad

My husband, Dennis, has been asking for fish more in the last couple weeks than he has in our almost 31 years of marriage. He’s following a fitness program put on by a retired Navy Seal, in which they are asked to eat certain food types and give up others during certain weeks of the…

Swordfish with Pesto

I spent today at the County Courthouse downtown for jury duty. They must have liked me because I’ll be going back tomorrow, all the way through Monday. I’m glad I bought swordfish for tonight’s dinner because, not only does it cooks relatively quickly, we can eat healthy as well. I haven’t worked outside the home…

Cod with Lemon, Basil and Kalamata Olives

Who doesn’t love summer? There are so many reasons to love summer … reading on the porch or the patio, days spent at the beach, barbecues with family and friends, warmer weather, the county fairs across the country. I could go on and on. One of the many reasons I love summer is for the…

Roasted Bell Peppers Stuffed with Pesto Cod Recipe

On March 8th, my friend, Jen was the host of our Thursday Night Bookclub. She made a wonderful dinner of peppers stuffed with a scallop in pesto sauce. I actually can’t eat scallops due to an allergy to them, but was able to eat one of the plain pesto peppers. The dinner Jen made was…

Roasted Salmon Tacos

Instead of Taco Tuesday for tomorrow night, we had Mexican Monday tonight. I had already planned on making chili for dinner for Tuesday because San Diego is expecting a winter storm … lots of rain and wind will be coming our way. The rain actually started this evening, it’s so cozy! Last week I watched…

Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner

A couple weeks ago I made a sheet pan dinner with chicken sausages, bell peppers, green beans, red onion and garlic. It was so popular that I decided to make another sheet pan dinner for tonight, with salmon as my protein. With the salmon, I had purple potatoes (because they come out at this time…

Zesty Lime Dover Sole

Last night for dinner, I decided to make fish. While Dennis and I were grocery shopping over the weekend, I was waiting for the butcher to butterfly a couple of chickens for me that I was going to be making for a dinner party Monday night. As I was waiting, I saw a bottle of…

Pesto, Parmesan and Panko Crusted Cod

If you want to have a really moist fish dinner, I highly recommend making it the way I did tonight. I started with cod fillets that I buy at Trader Joe’s. I spread some jarred pesto over the top of my fish, after sprinkling it with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. On top of…
