Fresh Salmon Tacos


I have this friend who is obsessed with tacos. OBSESSED. He can and does eat tacos for every meal. And he tells me about it all the time. I literally get daily updates telling me he ate tacos again for lunch. And then dinner. Or he might tell me that he was forced to eat…

Smoked Salmon Chowder {Seattle style}


One of the things I loved about living in Portland, Ore., was how close it was to Seattle. I love, love, love Seattle. I love Pike Place Market. I could walk around it for hours and I have before. One of the things I’ve never tried while in Seattle was Smoked Salmon Chowder. Clam Chowder,…

Garlicky Lemon Greek Yogurt Pasta with Smoked Salmon and Feta


It was determined after the Saturday night fat bomb late night snack that a lightened up dinner was needed on Sunday. I’ve always shied away from using Greek yogurt in pasta because… Why would I want to eat pasta unless it was full of fat? However, I was persuaded to try Greek yogurt in pasta…

Salmon Nachos


I found the idea of salmon + nachos at once intriguing and slightly disgusting. The most out-on-a-limb I normally go when eating nachos is subbing chicken for beef. But I had this one lone salmon fillet in my fridge this week and didn’t feel like having salmon and spinach again. So I got a little…

Bad Baby Smoked Salmon and Brie Pie

Salmon and Cream Cheese Pizza with Tomato, Red Onion and Dill


I’ve been dreaming of this recipe for a week now. Scanning the internet for recipes I discovered there aren’t that many salmon pizza recipes out there – unless you’re looking for smoked salmon. I found a few people who used either fresh or leftover salmon and stole bits and pieces of the ingredients and directions…

Salmon Chowder


Some of the best clam chowder I’ve ever had can be found at The Original Fish Company in Los Alamitos, Calif. When I’m nostalgic for my former California life, a lot of times it’s the food I crave. Though I haven’t come across a great recipe for Clam Chowder as of yet, my grandma sent…

Salt Lick Salmon


About a year or so ago my dad was visiting me in Long Beach, Calif., when he stumbled upon a restaurant that sold Himilayan salt plates. Having recently heard rave reviews from friends who had learned to cook using these salt plates, Dad was intrigued. But not intrigued enough to buy one to lug home…
