Baked Salmon with Maple Glaze

I think you guys know by now that I like cooking with seafood.  And not just any seafood, it has to be fresh and of good quality.  I am sure that you all have been in a store or restaurant and said that you smelled fish.  Well, fresh, high quality seafood isn’t supposed to smell fishy.  That’s why I only get my seafood from Anderson Seafoods.  I only want yummy smells coming out of my kitchen ;)

This Baked Salmon recipe is outstanding with the simple, yet delectable Maple Glaze.

Baked Salmon with Maple Glaze

You only need a few ingredients, one of them being REAL Maple Syrup.  I do indeed recommend using the real stuff ;)

Once you have the glaze made, it’s as easy as pouring it over your salmon and baking it!  This dish looks fancy, but the prep time is about 5 minutes.

Now, here’s the recipe.  Remember to pin it and/or print it so that you can make it again and again!

Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning

Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning Recipe

Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning

One of my absolute favorite ways to enjoy Mahi Mahi is usually as a fish taco, but the other night my husband surprised me by cooking up some fabulous Anderson Seafoods Mah Mahi with a Jerk Seasoning.  I will admit that I was slightly concerned when I first saw it…I was afraid that he burnt some of our prized Mahi Mahi!  But, he didn’t ;)

Jerk Seasoned Mahi Mahi

You will brush the seasoning paste that only takes a few moments to make, over the fish before cooking it, so they will blacken as you cook the fillets. Don’t worry, they aren’t burnt – nor do will it taste burnt.  It WILL taste fabulous.

You definitely want to make sure that you really coat the fillets in the seasoning – it adds such a wonderful flavor.  As you can see, we even brushed it onto the sides.

Now, here’s the recipe.  Remember to pin it and/or print it so that you can make it again and again!

  5. Enjoy!

 

 

Recipe for Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasoning

We served ours with steamed asparagus and quinoa.  It was definitely a flavorful meal, and we will definitely be adding this one into our regular rotation.  I know it’s easy to fall into cooking “ruts” but I encourage you to step outside of the box and try something new.  Something FUN :)

When you think of your holiday meals, I strongly encourage you to think outside of the “traditional” meats…think QUALITY seafood! Think Anderson Seafoods.

I hope your family enjoys this Mahi Mahi with Jerk Seasonings as much as we do!

Recipe for Honey & Lime Baked Salmon

Honey Lime Baked Salmon In Foil

The holidays are coming and I know we are all looking for delicious meals to make for our families, but I wanted to bring up that there are other things to serve than turkey and ham!  Salmon is one of our favorite fish – it is light, yet filling, and when cooked right and you have a high quality product it is full of fabulous flavors.  Speaking of high quality seafood…the freshest fish I have ever found is from Anderson Seafoods (Well, besides from catching it ourselves ;)  ).  I know you guys have heard me talk about Anderson Seafoods before and I am very proud to be able to cook with their products on a regular basis.  My husband just said last week that we would never be able to buy seafood from anywhere else again, the taste is really unbeatable.  In fact, it is fresher than some seafood we have bought at restaurants!

Today I have a Honey Lime Salmon Recipe for you guys.  This turned out absolutely amazing!

Honey and Lime Salmon Recipe

I was so happy with it!  Once you make the glaze, you just make sure the salmon is covered with the sauce and you are just about done!  Make sure to brush the glaze on the sides of the salmon as well.  You want to make sure to give the fish as much of the flavor as possible.

Honey Lime Baked Salmon Recipe

I cooked it the easy way…wrapped in aluminum foil.  Easy and delicious…that’s my favorite kind of recipe ;)

The salmon comes out of the oven full of flavor and so good!!  I served mine with baked asparagus drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

I have another great Pumpkin recipe for you guys today!  My mom called me a few days ago and said that I should try making a Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich.  The idea did indeed sound weird at first, but it is low-cal and I thought it would be worth a try to get creative with :)

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I added sweet peppers for a bit of crunch and cayenne pepper for a bit of heat.  Now, I have told several friends about this recipe and they had all said that it sounds a bit “weird,” but I definitely recommend it! I was surprised how well all the flavors blended.

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Recipe

Once the peppers and onions are sauteed, you simply mix them in with the pumpkin and a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese and you will have your sandwich ready in just a few minutes.

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Then you simply spread the pumpkin mixture evenly on your low-fat bread (I used Arnold Thins) and add a slice of low-fat cheese.

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Once you add on the slice of cheese, warm the bread on the stove like you normally would a grilled cheese.  I did NOT butter the bread at all, the little bit of oil that was still in the pan worked fine. Make sure you are using a pan that is big enough to fit the 2 slices of bread.  I used the Farberware Dishwasher-safe 10-inch skillet with Teflon® nonstick coating.

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese Recipe

Once the bread is “toasted” and the cheese is melted, it’s time to enjoy your sandwich!

Now, here’s the recipe…Don’t forget to print it or pin it for future reference.

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

I have a delicious soup recipe for you guys today. If you follow my blog, you probably know by now that I like a bit of a “kick” to most of my dishes…Spicy is fun :) Hence why I thought we would all enjoy this Spicy Butternut Squash Recipe!

I will confess that I have never made any kind of soup before that required me to puree the vegetables,and I was a bit nervous. But it was much easier than I thought!

There isn’t a ton of ingredients in this one, and prep time is about 20 minutes. What took me the longest was peeling the squash ;)  You will notice that I used skim milk and cream cheese instead of the heavy cream that you sometimes see in this soup…I like to keep my recipes as healthy as possible!

Butternut Squash soup recipe

Make sure you have a nice big pot that will accommodate all that Butternut Squash!  I used my Farberware Dishwasher-safe 5-quart pot with Teflon® nonstick coating. I appreciate easy clean up too ;)

Once you have the onions and garlic cooking, you add in the squash and that hot pepper and you are well on your way to a delicious, LOW-FAT, soup!
