Hawaiian Fish Pasta

I wonder why, in the continental USA at least, pork and pineapple have become associated with Hawaii? I mean I can understand the pineapple considering Hawaii has historically been associated with giant pineapple plantations.  Fun fact though – currently only 2% of the world’s pineapple is actually produced in Hawaii.  The largest producers include Thailand, the Philippines and Brazil.

Spring Shrimp Salad

Spanish Shrimp Asparagus Roasted Red Pepper Onion Tomato

Alright so I’m going to let you in on a little secret…I’ve actually never cooked shrimp before. Seriously, first time ever.

Woohoo!  I ... Read More »

Garlic and Chive Mashed Potato Crusted Fish

Continuing on my theme of “I’ve got over 4lbs of potatoes to use up” I was trying to figure out a fish meal using potatoes. Now I could have easily just served it on the side or did a fun En Papillote version with some thinly sliced potatoes but I’ve done things like that before and I wanted something just ... Read More »
