This salmon is simply perfect. Ok, slightly cocky- but it's true. It tastes like you've grilled it, but in fact, you haven't bothered. All you've done is put on your broiler for a moment. Crispy top, medium inside. Perfect every time. There's not much too it. Some lemon, salt and pepper. Sometimes I put paprika. This is more for color and a dark look rather than flavor. Also the size of the fish matters. And by size I mean height. The taller the fish the longer the cook time
The beauty of a sheet pan dinner is the one pan. As a mom of two I shy away from dishes that take too long or require too much prep. This dish is great because you can get it going whenever you have time and then finish it off 14 minutes before you want to eat. Asian Sheet Pan Salmon Originally printed on Sourced, the Fresh Direct Blog Ingredients: 2 x 6-8oz pcs. Salmon fillets, center cut 3 baby bok choy, cut in quarters lengthwise 1 box (6 oz) shitake mushrooms, stems remov
Let's be real. Fried fish is delicious. But let me level with you. I will not be frying fish anytime soon. For the same reason I don't fry potatoes or anything else- I don't like to fuss. It's also not so good for you. You know, that whole bathing in oil thing? But mainly I don't have the damn time and I don't want the damn mess. So in walks my compromise. So yummy. No leftovers.

Also if you don't have flounder you can substitute for any white fish filets that are fresh- sole, pollock, or even halibut.

Pesto Flounder Roll-ups This dish is gorgeous. It smells amazing as it cooks and is fancy enough for any company, but delicious enough for even the kids to eat. If you do not want to make your own pesto, just buy one from the store. If it does not have cheese, just add some grated parmesan to freshen it up. Ingredients: 6 pieces flounder or sole (if you chose flounder make sure it is thin), split in half length wise ½ cup corn flake crumbs (or any other crumbs- use gluten
I am a full time working mom who has no extra time to spare. Every day of the week is planned out from advance. Each Sunday, I sit down for 20 minutes to map out what my food plan is for the week ahead. To make my life easier, I purchase all my food at that very moment from my Fresh Direct app. They offer a great rating system on all fresh produce that helps you figure out what is best to buy for that week. I can also map my menu around what is freshest that week. I don’
While I have not been to Greece, I would like to eat like the Greeks. You can’t go wrong with simply prepared fish or vegetables. Or how about having some tzadziki, olives and fresh hummus? And of course, finishing the meal with fillo pastry with crushed pistachios and sweetened tea? All right, it’s time to book a ticket for some research. A business expense right? Well, while I wait for this “trip” to come to fruition I will try to perfect a clean, beautiful and flavorful w
