mmmahi mahi

1 May

Last week, Sunflower Market had mahi mahi for $3.99 / lb! I was all over that deal! We grilled the mahi mahi with a mango chipotle sauce I picked up at World Market earlier this week. We made the mango salsa by combining mango, minced onion, garlic and green bell peppers with avocado, cilantro, a little orange juice and few dashes of our favorite hot sauce. We served the fish with the salsa on top and grilled white corn on the side. We combined the leftovers to make a cold salad for the next day. This salsa really complimented the fish’s flavor and the whole meal was fresh and summery.


grilled tilapia and pineapple salsa

8 Apr

The weather today was perfect for grillin’! This little dinner was fantastic and super easy! We marinated the tilapia in some pineapple teryaki sauce, sprinkled pineapple slices with a little margarita salt and chili powder and threw them on the grill. Once the pineapple was done, we chopped it up with some mango, green and orange bell peppers, cilantro, lime and a splash of orange juice to make the salsa. Throw some salsa on top of the fish and you’re all set to dig in and did we ever. I can see us making this dinner a lot in the coming months when it gets too hot to cook inside.

coconut shrimp soup

15 Mar

We’re back from our backpacking trip and I’m trying to organize my pictures before I post about the trip. It was AMAZING! After I took a shower the second we got home I was ready to go back.

Tonight we made this coconut shrimp soup: http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/coconut-shrimp-soup. We decreased the amount of carrots and added mushrooms and spinach. We also added Marie Sharp’s Beware Habanero Pepper Sauce for some heat. We like this hot sauce A LOT because it’s nice and hot without the vinegar. Soup came out great!

friday dinner

28 Feb

For dinner on Friday we had one thing on our minds: seafood! I really wanted to make shrimp scampi with fresh asparagus (they’re in season right now.. tastier and cheaper!) and the boyfriend wanted mussels so we got both and lots of lemon and garlic. The picture is terrible .. I was in a rush to dig in! I also wish I had taken more photos of the mussels but we were eating them as we prepared the scampi. We steamed the mussels in white wine with garlic and butter and squeezed lemon on top. Amazing! We cooked the shrimp in garlic lemon juice with a bit of butter. We threw in the asparagus right at the end because we wanted them to keep some crunch. Then we just served the shrimp and asparagus over angel hair pasta. Dinner was delicious! We order mussels and scampi often when we go out and usually pay way to much for butter drenched over cooked shrimp; it was nice to make it how we like it annnnd save money!
