Baked Scallops

I love my recipe for seared scallops and make it often, but tonight I felt like trying something new. This recipe for baked scallops was a big hit – the buttery-cheesy topping is just wonderful. This dish comes out of the oven quite saucy and the sauce is wonderful – so serve it atop steamed rice or with crusty bread. Click for the recipe

Smoked Paprika Roasted Salmon

Salmon and smoked paprika – two bold flavors that complement each other really well. Like all baked salmon recipes, this is an easy one – simply brush with the sauce and bake. Click for the recipe

Pork Rind Crusted Pork Chops

Crushed pork rinds make a tasty, low-carb coating for pork chops. Serve these pork chops immediately and don’t plan on keeping leftovers – as they rest, accumulated juices can make the crust soggy (though I can say from experience that even when this happens, the pork chops are still delicious!).

Spaghetti Squash Sesame Noodles

Very close to the real thing, spaghetti squash sesame noodles are a tasty compromise for those of us trying to limit carbs or avoid gluten. Serve as a side dish to any Asian-inspired meal – I often serve it with nori-wrapped salmon. Click for the recipe

Roasted Broccoli Stalks

Don’t toss those broccoli stalks! They are a delicacy, especially when roasted. You can use two baking sheets and roast the broccoli florets at the same time, though they will likely be ready a few minutes before the stalks. Click for the recipe

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
