Crab, Shrimp and Pork Pot Stickers

Crab, Shrimp and Pork Pot Stickers

I absolutely love eating pot stickers. What’s not to love about them? Crispy on one side, tender on the other and bursting with a flavorful crab, shrimp and pork filling.

Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry-Rosemary Sauce

Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry-Rosemary Sauce

If elegant is what you’re after, these Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry-Rosemary Sauce are the way to go. They make any dinner an occasion. Lamb chops are a sure sign of a fancy affair. But that doesn’t mean they’re hard to prepare or should be saved for special occasions. Actually, lamb chops can’t be beat in the summer as they cook quickly and are perfect for grilling. If you’ve never purchased lamb chops before, it can get confusing. So here’s what you need to know. There are two types of lamb chops available–rib and loin chops. If you’re looking for the show-stopper with the long bone, buy rib chops. The loin chop is a tiny t-bone steak containing meat from both the tenderloin and the short loin. Be sure to let the lamb rest after it’s grilled. If it’s sliced too soon, the juices will be lost, causing the meat to become dry. Continue Reading →

Soy-Glazed Black Cod with Orange Zest

Soy-Glazed Black Cod with Orange Zest

In the deep blue depths of Alaska’s pristine waters lies what some would consider the best tasting fish in the world–Black Cod. This incredibly flavorful fish is also referred to as Sablefish or Butterfish. It is widely known as an excellent fish for gourmet entrées and well received when smoked. Its name, Butterfish, is thought to be derived from the fact that it has a soft, buttery, delicate texture. Prepared correctly, it will literally melt in your mouth. This Soy-Glazed Black Cod with Orange Zest is by far the best recipe I have for Black Cod and will definitely be a keeper for you! Continue Reading →
