Summer Seafood

I don't normally cook a lot of seafood other than my usual seared salmon, but in the summer I do get cravings for it.  The reason is unknown - maybe because it is light and refreshing, maybe because I wish I was at the beach.  Either way, I have a couple of light and healthy Summer seafood recipes to share with you.

These shrimp tacos are filled out with a slaw of cabbage, corn, fresh squeezed orange and lime juice, and a dab of sour cream.  A great balance between warm tortillas, hot shrimp fresh out of the pan, and cool, crunchy slaw - they are healthy, filling, and super tasty.

This next recipe combines two superfoods into one awesome meal for Salmon Burgers with Tangy Avocado Sauce.


Phyllo Wrapped Salmon with Pea Salad

In my ever-continuing quest for salmon recipes, I came across this one for salmon topped with goat cheese and baked inside phyllo dough - yum!  Who wouldn't want to eat that?  I wanted something pretty light to balance out the dish, so I decided on a fresh pea, feta, and prosciutto salad that was great as a side, but also good enough to eat on its own.


Japanese Braised Salmon

More salmon!  I am always questing for tasty salmon recipes so that we will eat more of this super healthy fish (note that it is only super healthy when it is wild caught Pacific/Alaskan; farm raised Atlantic salmon is full of toxins).  This recipe makes super tender, super moist salmon that is packed with sweet and salty flavors.


Roasted Salmon with Grapefruit

In trying to stick to my resolution to cook more salmon I was looking for something a little different and fun. To my surprise, I stumbled across two different recipes involving salmon and grapefruit. "Is that a thing?" I wondered, "A common pairing?" I had never thought of it before. I decided to take elements from both recipes to make one complete meal.
