Sweet and Spicy Salmon

It’s been a while since I posted anything, and while I’d like to blame my recent move to London (UK not back to my hometown London ON), I think I’ve fallen out of the habit a bit. However, there is no shortage of amazing food and inspiration here (it is the land of Ottolenghi after all), and following a particularly delicious dinner last night, I am trying to get back in the swing of things! One of the best things about living in London has been the markets, for food stuffs and all other stuffs. Every weekend Graham and I seek out a new one, or return to our favourite in Marylebone, where we fill as many bags as we can carry reasonably (ubering occasionally). Upon returning home we cram it all in our miniature fridge, and then endeavour to make it all before the next market day! It’s a lovely ritual and a great way to ensure we are eating local food that is in season.

This salmon recipe is super easy, healthy, and very delicious. All you need is salmon, red chilli jelly, S&P and some jalapeños. THAT’S ALL.

Happy Eating!

Crispy Spicy Shrimp featuring the Boss Kale Salad

March 10, 2015

Graham and I have been watching/listening to Britney Spears for the past hour and it has put me in an excellent mood. I strongly encourage you to revisit some of Britney’s older material if you have not in a while – the denim outfit in Overprotected alone is worth it. Anyways… when you are jamming out to Britney you probably want something healthy (serious ab envy) and also something quick so you can work on your choreography between chopping and frying. Spicy shrimp and kale salad should fit the bill.

This light and easy weekday dinner packs a lot of protein and will leave you with plenty of energy to have a dance party later. Stay tuned for my Boss Kale Salad recipe. Why is it called Boss Kale Salad you may ask? Here’s a hint: crisp prosciutto, burrata and peaches.

The Classic Kale Salad

May 3, 2014

I think most people have tried a variety of this salad because it’s easy to make, tasty, and kale is healthy… everyone loves kale…Great for quick weeknight dinners and even once dressed holds up nicely for lunch the next day.

Ali (Graham’s mom) first prepared this salad for us and pointed out that the key is to chiffonade the kale. Continue Reading…
