Salmon Cakes

Sorry for the gap in posts.  Bizzy!  These are basically crab cakes (here is a Spicy Cilantro and Green Onion Crab Cake) with salmon instead.  A similar consistency, fairly similar taste, and a little cheaper than crab most of the time.  We had been having a lot of salmon because of a sale at Wholey’s and this was a good way to switch it up a bit and maximize the fish.

Miso Soup

I LOVE miso soup! I found a great, easy recipe and was able to recreate one of my favorite restuarant dishes at home. It takes very little time to prepare and if you are considering throwing a sushi party any time soon, this would be a great way to kick things off.

Seared Scallop Pad Thai

Good ol cliche Pad Thai.  What can I say, it is darn good despite being the most cliche and possibly Americanized Asian dish.  Eileen is much more skilled in Asian cuisine (Curry is one of her specialties) than I am but I was inspired to give this old favorite a try.  I looked up some recipes and sort of used them as a basis and tailored it to my taste.

No Tortilla Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Bake

What to do when you want chicken enchiladas but you don’t have any tortillas? Make this and you won’t even miss ’em! This is all the good stuff of the chicken enchiladas you know and love without all the needless filler of tortillas. You’re probably a little unsure right now about not using tortillas… which is very understandable.  I’m here to tell you that we really enjoyed this a lot and realized that the tortillas were never really that necessary after all.  Maybe you’ll agree.

Pork and Ginger Dumplings

We were making some finger foods for guests and while dumplings are not the typical “finger food”  they were a good munchie to have out.  We kept it pretty simple with pork, ginger, and green onion.  We tried a few different cooking types as can be seen above before deciding on the best.
