Shrimp and Grits

I’ve been dying to try the traditional Southern dish Shrimp n’ Grits. I’ve been to numerous restaurants with their infamous or not infamous shrimp n’ grits, but I always get something else that looks equally delicious. But then last week I saw an episode of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives that featured a Southern restaurant not in the South, and the chef showed the viewers how he prepared the dish. I watched it and thought “Wow. I could totally make that. I think.” So I did. And it was delicious. Here is my picture of my shrimp, cheese grits, and green bean beet salad:

a mountain of cheese grits topped with heavenly goodness amongst a field of greens? yummm.

And this is a picture of my breakfast for dinner: bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese grits, and grilled broccoli for some healthy greens:

breakfast. it's what's for dinner.

Chickpea and Tuna Salad

This week I decided to focus on a side dish. I chose the chickpea and tuna salad recipe from Nami Nami. Pretty simple and delicious, thought for me, the tuna was a little much. I may add less tuna next time, and possibly another vegetable.

I wish I had a picture of it, but I went through it pretty quickly. In other news, my green beans are coming along nicely, but my beets are done for. I think I’ll re-plant them in August or September. We’ll see…

Fish and Corn

I know, I know, I haven’t posted in a while, but I really enjoyed this fish and corn recipe from Sensible Cooking. Really simple, really tasty, really quick!

i remembered to take a picture! yummy!

Fish Tacos

I started working at Arden’s Garden in Little 5 Points yesterday. It’s my first job in the food service industry, and I had a blast. I may not feel that way in a couple weeks, but it’s cool people, good juice, and more cool people.

So earlier this week I was going to make this taco recipe, but then realized I wanted fish instead, so I changed it up. I also couldn’t get some of the ingredients they call for. They were fantastic, and this is how it went:

tacoooos! and green beans on the side, because you can't go wrong with green beans.

Fish Parcels

Yesterday I made this fish parcels recipe from Nibblous. It was really easy to make, except that there was no temperature listed for baking. I guess that’s because it all varies with the type of fish you choose. I used pollock, so it wasn’t very difficult to cook/determine a cook time. And again, I didn’t take a picture, but here’s the crab I cooked a few weeks ago!

crazy, right? i cooked that crab! but his arm broke off. stupid crab.

Sole Florentine…but I used tilapia

I had a man friend come visit me this weekend from West Point, and I thought I’d cook some fish because I know he doesn’t get enough seafood there. I found this recipe on YumSugar. I couldn’t find sole at Gristedes, so I bought tilapia instead. I also served it with a side of roasted potatoes with garlic and olive oil (I’m not good at potatoes), and not only was the plate wonderfully colorful, but it was also quite tasty. And, once again, I didn’t have time to photograph my meal or the process, but here’s a picture of me in my awesome apron!

that's right. i'm a sexy and fabulously strong woman. don't mess.

I will post my grocery list later. I figured this recipe would be much more interesting than my groceries this week. Still staying under budget though!

Carmelized White Fish

The recipe I made this week is from the World Hearth Circle of International Cooking as a Cambodian dish. I used tilapia, but I didn’t use pork. I also used significantly less portions, so my cooking time was much shorter. A great, tasty meal that I wish I had more of.

scallions! how tasty and colorful.
