Baked Cheeseburgers

Baking cheeseburgers in the oven is so easy – no need to form the meat into patties, or to keep an eye on them as they fry or grill. And no grease splatters to clean up! The meat does tend to come out a bit drier, since some juices are lost while baking. Still, these baked cheeseburgers are delicious, and they are requested often by my family. Leftovers are wonderful the next day for breakfast or lunch – briefly warmed in the microwave, or even cold. Click for the recipe

Broiled Salmon

Jerk Chicken

The idea to make jerk chicken came to me while reading the fascinating memoir by chef Marcus Samuelsson, Yes Chef. Mr. Samuelsson mentions “jerk seasoning,” and of course I was intrigued. A quick internet search led to a jerk seasoning recipe which I tweaked just a bit, and as usual, the following recipe is my own interpretation. The seasoning is phenomenal – bold, sweet-and spicy, and full of flavor. Generally I find chicken bland, but with jerk seasoning, it is anything but. Click for the recipe

Spicy Fish Stew

This spicy fish stew is super flavorful, and although spicy, the heat does not overwhelm the dish, allowing the delicate flavor of the fish to come through. Obviously amazing with crusty bread, for us low carbers this spicy fish stew is thoroughly enjoyable when eaten with a spoon. Click for the recipe
