Cheesy Seafood Kale Stuffed Eggplant

Cheesy Seafood Kale Stuffed Eggplant ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #seafood #stuffed #eggplant #recipe

In her garden, my mom plants these gorgeous eggplant that are light purple/white and shaped like a globe.  Every time she gives me one, I think it really is perfect for stuffing. It’s just the right size. This time she gave me THREE of them and I was sooooo happy. (Eggplant make me a little […]


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 […]


Smoked Salmon Sundried Tomato Spread

Smoked Salmon Sundried Tomato Spread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #seafood #cheese #appetizer #recipe

Smoked salmon, sundried tomatoes, herbs and garlic all join together in this scrumptious savory cheese spread. This easy spread keeps for quite a while in the fridge, so you can have it “on hand” whenever you need a little special something for an impromptu gathering of friends or family. I made a similar salmon spread to […]


Roasted Pepper & Asparagus Salad

Roasted Pepper & Asparagus Salad with Chicken, Feta, and Avocado and a Sriracha Yogurt Ranch dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad for #dinner #recipe

with Chicken, Roasted Onions, Marinated Feta, & Avocado Soft, crisp tender roasted veggies with crisp lettuce and juicy fresh tomatoes, along with creamy salty crumbled marinated feta, creamy avocado and warm comforting chicken. It’s a treat for the tastebuds and the eyes. Roasting some of the veggies adds an amazing texture differentiator and it’s even better if […]


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 […]


Product Review: Pete’s Seafood Club

Pete's Seafood Club ~ Spinach & Feta Stuffed Salmon

Sometimes I get requests from food (or food-related) companies to review their products. This time I got a rather unusual invitation to come and visit Pete’s Seafood‘s location in Southern California. I (sadly) had to decline … I am too far away to visit their factory, but I told them I would be very glad […]


40 Healthier Holiday Appetizers

40 Healthier Holiday Appetizers (and why they're better for you)

… and why they’re good for you! It’s almost Christmas and everywhere I look lately, there is sugar! It’s taken over the Internet, my workplace, my kitchen, my gifts (yes, I confess, I’m giving away lots of sugar this year). For a while I fell victim to the sugar-devil, reveling in baking and melting chocolate, […]


Hot Spanish Salmon Artichoke Dip

Hot Spanish Salmon Artichoke Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #recipe

So I got to wondering what would Romesco sauce taste like if you mixed it with some cream cheese … and seafood … and made it into a dip? My initial thoughts were to put crab and artichoke in the dip, but changed my mind midstream and went for salmon instead. You could use shrimp, […]


Amy’s Savory Sandwich Cake (Smorgastarta)

Savory Sandwich Cake {Smorgastarta} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Inspired by Panini Happy It’s a sandwich that looks like a cake … bread makes the “cake layers”, egg and salmon salad make the “fillings” and the “frosting” is a mix of light cream cheese and Greek yogurt (and incidentally, the easiest frosting I’ve ever worked with!) …  The idea of making something savory that […]


Salmon & Asparagus Salad Sandwich

Salmon & Asparagus Salad Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Instead of tuna salad sandwiches, try using salmon for a change! It just tastes better. To make these sandwiches even healthier, I used Greek yogurt in place of most of the mayo. It works beautifully. You can use any kind of cooked salmon for this … or even canned salmon works. I made this recipe […]


Hot & Cheesy Kale & Salmon Dip

Hot & Cheesy Kale & Salmon Dip

I was seriously craving spinach artichoke dip yesterday … but alas! I am all out of spinach. Hmm, but I have kale … and it occurred to me … why does spinach get all the attention? Shouldn’t kale get to play in the dip too? I also had some salmon that we had barbecued the […]


Pesto Salmon Pizza with Capers & Feta

Pesto Salmon Pizza with Capers & Feta Cheese

I’m guest blogging over at Nutri-Savvy today! Lauren challenged me to create a recipe with a set of unusual ingredients for her Mix it Up Mondays. The list included salmon, capers, tomatoes, kale, and feta … that sounded to me like it would make a perfect pizza! And it did. Pop over to Nutri-Savvy for the recipe. […]


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 […]


Tulip & Violet Salad with Salmon Cucumber Toasts

Tulip & Wild Violet Salad with Salmon Blue Cheese Cucumber Toast

a.k.a., Tiptoe through the Tulips with Me Salad I have been wondering what beautiful blossoms in my yard are edible? There must be something besides dandelions and wild violets … So I did a little research and it turns out there is a reason the deer chomp off the tulip blossoms so quickly … they’re […]


Raspberry Salmon Havarti Toast with Wild Greens

Raspberry Salmon Havarti Toast with Wild Greens

Do you recognize those “wild” greens? Today is National Weed Appreciation Day and you know what? I really appreciate my weeds. Oh some of them are a pain, literally, like the thistles and the cockleburrs that I just can’t seem to get under control, but the dandelions and wild violets that sprout up all over […]
