I’m currently getting ready to head off to Greece, and one thing I always look forward to when I’m there is indulging in Astakomakaronada: Greek lobster pasta. You can find the dish all over the islands in the summer, and when it’s done well it’s worth the hefty price tag. Read on to find out how I make this delicious recipe.
Sunday is our market day in Los Angeles, and the inspiration for this Mediterranean salmon baked in parchment recipe. Strolling to the farmers market on Sundays is my incentive to wake up a littler earlier in anticipation of what the week’s harvest will bring. Right now, summer is swinging into high gear and all the farmers tents are stocked with plenty of squash, heirloom tomatoes, stone fruits, and eggplants are just beginning to arrive. It’s my favorite time of year with so much available.
These sliders are a riff on a classic Greek keftedes meatball recipe. You can use any meat you want — turkey (pictured), lamb, beef, chicken, etc. — and then make it super flavorful with fresh herbs like mint and parsley, and aromatics like onion and garlic.
If you’re like me and can’t pass up a good crab cake, these salmon cakes are the perfect dish for you. Sometimes good crab is hard to find, which is why using fresh, wild salmon in this recipe is so easy. It also is a great source of healthy omega 3s, B vitamins, and potassium.
This Chicken Stir Fry with Asparagus and Pistachios is one of my favorite dishes to make for my personal chef clients. It’s super healthy and satisfying.
In this Sun-Dried Tomato Tzatziki recipe, I’m offering another variation on the classic. Instead of cucumbers, this weaves in beautiful, tangy sun-dried tomatoes, which offer a perfect bright compliment to the dill and garlic.
Mediterranean meets Mexico I’ve been obsessed lately with the intersection of Greek and Mexican food. Especially the common ingredients each culture uses in its food and cocktails and the differences
Delicata squash is subtly sweet and easy to prepare. In this recipe it pairs well when roasted with peppery arugula and sweet superfood aronia berries.
