Spaghetti Squash with Peanut Sauce

Spaghetti squash is magical. While its texture obviously differs than that of real noodles, when mixed with various sauces, it does give one the experience of eating noodles. This spaghetti squash with peanut sauce makes a wonderful addition to any Asian-inspired dish. I often serve it with Asian salmon. Click for the recipe

Low Carb Breaded Shrimp

Blackened Chicken

Chicken breast can be boring, but blackened, it’s anything but! Spicy and bold, blackened chicken is delicious when hot, and just as good cold, sliced over mixed greens. Click for the recipe

Chicken Patties

Crisp and golden, these delicious chicken patties are a huge hit with kids – and I have yet to meet a grownup who doesn’t like them! They make great use of leftover chicken breast. Extra yummy when served with a dip such as mustard, mayonnaise, or sour cream mixed with a little hot sauce. Click for the recipe

Boiled Shrimp

I like simple boiled shrimp better than any other shrimp recipe. Usually served as an appetizer with cocktail sauce, I actually serve boiled shrimp as a main course (8oz per person), with melted ghee for dipping. Pair this delicacy with a simple salad, and you’ve got yourself a tasty, easy summer meal that does not require heating up the oven. Click for the recipe

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
