Seared scallops over spaghetti squash with crispy leeks

This recipe is great if you’re looking to impress some dinner guests as it gets a lot of oohhhhs and ahhhhhhs for its fancy presenation but won’t have you slaving in the kitchen for a long time. In fact, you can make the spaghetti squash ahead of time (which is what I did) and then […]

Spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams)

This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It’s only got a few ingredients but it packs a lot of flavor (if done correctly) and is great for summer entertaining.

Pan-seared grouper tacos with avocado salsa

One of the best parts about living in South Florida is the fact that we have fresh seafood readily available. These tacos can really be made with any firm white fish (mahi mahi, tilapia, halibut, etc.) or even with some grilled shrimp!  The avocado salsa is fresh, easy, and relatively low-fat. You can really add whatever you […]
