New England Style Lobster Roll Recipe

New England Style Lobster Roll Recipe

Few sandwiches encapsulate New England like the classic lobster roll. While lobster rolls are readily available in the summer months throughout New England, they can unfortunately come with a high price tag. Even worse are restaurants that take advantage of this price tag, but still manage to sell a sub-par or skimpy product. That is … Continue reading

Ceviche Recipe

Ceviche Recipe

For those of you that don’t know, ceviche is a dish made from shellfish or white, non-fatty fish and that uses no heat to cook the fish. Instead, the dish uses acid from fresh limes or lemons to cold cook the seafood. When done properly, the dish is a coolly refreshing combination of ocean and citrus. I’ve … Continue reading

Quito’s Restaurant – Bristol, RI

When my cousin, her husband, and two children (now three!) were staying with us while visiting the U.S., my family and I tried to show them around to let them try new things. Sometimes the best way to immerse people in another country is to have them try that country’s food. On this occasion, we opted … Continue reading

Baked Cod Loin Fillets

Baked Cod Loin Fillets

Cod is easily one of my favorite kinds of fish. It has a delicate flavor, but still remains very distinct. It’s hard to beat the perfectly flaky texture of this white fish when cooked properly. There are many ways to make cod, whether it is pan fried, breaded, grilled, or baked. In this recipe, I’ve … Continue reading

Shrimp Po’ Boy Sandwiches with Remoulade Sauce

I’ve eaten shrimp all of my life in so many different forms. Grilled, fried, stewed, baked, stuffed, with the shell, without the shell, in a sauce, on pizza, with pasta, you name it. When I’ve had shrimp sandwiches, none were better than the shrimp po’ boys I had in New Orleans. Grilled shrimp on a po’ boy sandwich … Continue reading

Scallops and Orzo Risotto

Scallops and Orzo Risotto

This pan seared sea scallop and orzo risotto is easy to make, deliciously filling, and looks beautiful on the plate. The light flavor of the scallops goes really well with the broth flavored orzo and the lemon adds a zesty twist that binds the ingredients together. It’s a bit of a misnomer for me to … Continue reading

Seafood Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers

Ok, so before I get into this dish, I will just go ahead and admit that it’s a weird one.  I’m not sure why I came up with it, but the idea intrigued me. I had some extra frozen scallops and shrimp that I needed to use, so I decided to try a new idea … Continue reading

Tony’s Clam Shop Review

Tony’s Clam Shop Review

While in Quincy, MA, I drove by a couple of clam shacks on Wollaston Beach.  The logical result was a hankering for a lobster roll.  First thing I did, was search reviews for the best lobster roll in Quincy and the reviews seemed almost unanimous, that Tony’s Clam Shop had the goods. I went to … Continue reading

Shrimp Shumai and Veggie Stir Fry

Impress your lady friend with dim sum! A long time friend introduced me to dim sum in college and I’ve loved it ever since.  It wasn’t until a little over a year ago that another friend told me that he made steamed shrimp shumai (dumplings) at home and sent me a recipe that I used, … Continue reading
