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. […]

Crispy eggplant rounds topped with a creamy Cajun white wine seafood sauce laced with mushrooms, onions and bell peppers, this lightened up version of the popular Louisiana dish is to die for. Named […]

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 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.

Recipe inspired by the “Fire Caps” at Firehouse Brewing Company, Rapid City, SD Last weekend my boyfriend stole me away … he suddenly decided we needed to go to the Black Hills and threatened to take his mom instead of me. Ouch. We had a pact, you see. I had agreed to go camping in […]


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 […]

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 […]


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 […]


Crab n Cheese Stuffed Sweet Pepper Poppers

Crab n Cheese Stuffed Sweet Pepper Poppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #popper #recipe

I have a huge fondness for jalapeno poppers, but sometimes those hot peppers are just a little too much even for my fire-lovin’ tongue. I am totally in love with the little sweet peppers that have been popping up lately, though, so much so that I got my parents to grow some in their garden this […]


Pesto, Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza

Pesto Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pizza #recipe

We love to grill pizzas in the summertime … my daughter always wants hers to be plain cheese (or sometimes sausage), I like to be more adventurous. So I make them “individual sized” so we can each have our favorite kind. Grilling pizza is really quite easy … the trick is to prep your toppings […]

Rich and creamy risotto with tender shrimp and asparagus, the sharpness of Asiago cheese, and a bit of fresh dill and chives to add flavor. Risotto is one of those gourmet meals that is really not difficult to make and it doesn’t take long either. You can have it on the table in 30 minutes […]


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 […]
