Shrimp & Smoked Salmon Sushi Bowl

Shrimp & Smoked Salmon Sushi Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #seafood #recipe

All the delicious flavors of sushi in an easy bowl! My friend Jon (who is Asian) calls this “bachelor sushi” … he tells me the way he makes sushi at home is just to throw it all in a bowl. Sometimes if he’s making sushi for a crowd, he just fills a cake pan with sushi ingredients. […]


Louisiana Seafood Gumbo

Lousiana Seafood Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gumbo #recipe

Adapted from Emeril’s Classic Seafood Gumbo Made with ingredients readily available to land-lubbers everywhere, this classic southern seafood gumbo will transport your taste buds to Louisiana. When my sister and I went to New Orleans last year, one of my culinary goals on the trip was to have some good gumbo. I tasted three different gumbos […]

This sushi roll was inspired by one of my favorite bagel toppings … smoked salmon and cream cheese. Sesame roasted asparagus and matchstick carrots on top of that add a nice flavor and crunch, a bit of green onion provides a little bite and then, a little bit of sriracha for that tingle on the tongue that is so […]


Smoked Salmon Avocado Sushi Roll

Smoked Salmon Avocado Sushi Roll ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #safe #homemade #sushi #recipe

A beautiful homemade sushi roll with smoked salmon, avocado, cucumber, wasabi sauce, Yum Yum sauce and sesame seeds. After I made my “South Dakota Sushi” (a.k.a, my Turkey & Cream Cheese sushi), my friend kept laughing at me … I couldn’t see him because he lives about a 4-hour drive from my house, but I could hear […]


Grilled Salmon with Tarragon Dijon Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Creamy Tarragon Dijon Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #fish #recipe

Salmon grilled on a bed of lemon slices with a creamy tarragon dijon yogurt sauce drizzled over top. What’s not to love about that? I made this one lovely sunny afternoon. There was a slight breeze–a welcome break from the torrential winds and chilly weather we’d been having. It was the perfect day for grilling […]


Irish Seafood Chowder

Irish Seafood Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Irish #Seafood #Soup #Stew #Recipe

On my quest to find more Irish dishes besides the corned beef and cabbage gig, I pondered what else would the Irish make? Well, there is a LOT of ocean around Ireland, so they must have seafood, yes? I googled Irish Seafood and a small school of Irish Seafood Chowder recipes surfaced. That made me smile. I […]


Cilantro Pesto Fish Tacos w/Zucchini Corn Salsa

Cilantro Pesto Fish Tacos with Roasted Zucchini Corn Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #quickeasydinner #recipe

I know what you’re thinking: the fish in this picture are GREEN! Why yes, they are. A vibrant, beautiful green because the fish fillets are rubbed in an oh-so-green Cilantro Almond pesto, then baked with extra nuts and cheese and some fresh cherry tomatoes on top, roasted to juicy perfection. The fish on its own is […]


Brazilian Thai Fusion Fish Stew with Zucchini

Brazilian Thai Fusion Fish Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #fusion #fish #stew #recipe

Inspired by Dizzy Busy & Hungry and my own kitchen meanderings Over the 4th of July we visited my sister and her husband who live on a lake in Minnesota. They both love to fish, so they always have an over-abundance of fish. Of course we had a huge fish fry on Saturday (which is always the highlight […]


Lemon Grilled Salmon w/Rosemary Garlic Veggies

Lemon Grilled Salmon with Mixed Grilled Veggies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #delicious #lowcal #glutenfree #dinner #recipe

I love salmon. It’s so quick to make, so healthy and soooo delicious. Preparing it on the grill is super fast and easy–you just make a little “plank” for it out of lemon slices and not only do you get that wonderful smoky taste, it’s also infused with the lively taste of lemon. To accompany […]


Honey Sriracha Sesame Crusted Fish

Honey Sriracha Sesame Crusted Fish ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #fish #recipe

After I made the Honey Sriracha Cashews, well, I had a load of nicely toasted sesame seeds that didn’t stick to the cashews like I hoped they would and I just couldn’t toss them, thinking that a Honey Sriracha Sesame coated chicken or fish would be marvelous! And then my dad came along and gave me […]


Chipotle Fish Taco Salad

with Herbed Lime Cilantro Yogurt dressing  (salad dressing recipe adapted from 17 Recipes) If there’s anything I love more than a taco, it’s a taco salad. Give me greens, some good things to put on them and an awesome homemade dressing and I’m a happy girl. I had some more fish strips left after making those […]


Chipotle Fish Tacos w/Mango Salsa

Chipotle Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #recipe

Quite often when I go visit my parents, who happen to live on a lake, they have fresh caught fish. They fish off the dock quite a bit in the summertime and they catch a lot of fish. They eat some of it and freeze some of it, but if they have some when I […]


Simple Seafood Bisque

Simple Seafood Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

A scrumptious seafood bisque that is super-simple to make, especially if you have some leftover seafood enchilada sauce on hand. I really really love the tiny flakes of crab in every creamy bite with slightly larger chunks of fish or a surprise shrimp on top and the lovely contrast of a bit of celery and […]


{Not Quite} ChiChi’s Seafood Enchiladas

{Not Quite} ChiChi's Seafood Enchiladas ~ My Take on them! Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #recipe

Adapted from Food.com Remember ChiChi’s Mexican Restaurant? Remember their seafood enchiladas? These are my take on ChiChi’s Seafood Enchiladas. Personally, I think they’re even better! A long, long time ago, back before I even started college, I worked at ChiChi’s. It was my boyfriend who got me the job there and I absolutely loved it. […]


Crab & Spinach Stuffed Fish Fillets

Crab & Spinach Stuffed Fish Fillets ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #gourmet #dinner #recipe

This dish is so elegant you’ll feel like you’re eating at a fancy restaurant, but it’s super simple to make. You can make it with any firm white fish like tilapia, walleye, or bass. I’ve tried it twice now: once with fresh walleye, once with silver bass and both times it turned out fabulous. I […]


Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo

Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #recipe

I became a big fan of fish tacos when I lived in California. It sounded strange to me at first, but once I tried them, I was totally hooked. Now whenever I am faced with fish leftovers, I make some fish tacos. They are so easy, quick and such a nice twist on fish. This […]


Parmesan Tarragon Chive Crusted Fish

Parmesan Tarragon Chive Crusted Fish ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Fish #Recipe

My dad taught me a new trick to making crispy breaded baked fish. Usually what you do for breaded baked fish is to dip the fish in egg and then dredge in the crumb coating, but Dad said you can skip all that messy stuff and get a really nice crumb coating on your fish […]


Apple Grilled Walleye with Smoky Pineapple Salsa

Apple Grilled Walleye with Smoky Pineapple Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #recipe

Grilling walleye and other tender fish can be tricky because they are so delicate. They tend to fall apart easily, so you can’t really set them directly on the grill, and there’s a danger of the fish drying out. This fish is grilled on a bed of apple “planks”, which protects the tender fish from […]


Basil Asiago Baked Walleye

Basil Asiago Baked Walleye with Risotto & Pomegranate Almond Mixed Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #recipe

Have I mentioned that I got fresh-caught walleye for my birthday? My parents showed up to visit for my birthday weekend and they handed me these two plastic containers … “this is your birthday gift,” they said. “You have to cook them right away or freeze them.” What was in the containers was fresh-caught walleye, […]


Fish, Shrimp & Corn Chowder with Bacon

Fish, Shrimp & Corn Chowder with Bacon & Green Chile from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #seafood #chowder #recipe

Inspired by Lemony Thyme and my wonderful wonderful parents Fish, shrimp and corn chowder, with potatoes, onion, celery, carrot, and green chile, laced with the salty goodness of bacon and a bit of cream: it’s a bowl of pure comfort. I have many fond memories of camping and fishing trips we did when I was young. […]


Fish Quesadillas with Pineapple Salsa

Next Generation Fish & White Bean Quesadillas with Pineapple Salsa

My dad gave me some fresh fish he had caught when I visited last weekend, and he told me I must either cook them up by Monday or freeze them. Fish is SO much better when it’s fresh, so I cooked it up. My daughter loooooves fresh fish, but she wasn’t very hungry Monday night […]


Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

I made this as a low sodium entree for my daughter … before we found out she can and SHOULD have salt. Whew.  That’s a relief. But when I asked my foodie friends if they still wanted low-sodium recipes, the resounding answer was YES. This is a tasty dish that you can make entirely without […]


Salmon, Havarti, Blue Cheese & Veggie Omelet

Salmon, Havarti, Blue Cheese & Spring Vegetable Omelet

I still had some salmon in my fridge from the other night when I made it for my daughter (I made extra just for times like this … salmon is such a fun fish to “play” with!) and a bit of Havarti and blue cheese, some cucumber, red onion, tomato, and dill … sounds like […]


Crunchy Fish Tacos with Zucchini Avocado Summer Vegie Melange

Crunchy Fish Tacos with Zucchini Avocado Summer Vegie Melange

This was a recipe born out of a need to use up leftover fish and corn on the cob … it was late summer so we also had an over-abundance of vegetables from the garden (but no cabbage!) and we happened to have an avocado on hand. Little did I know my parents had never […]
