Seafood Stew

Seafood Stew

This dish was prepared in honor of Nelson’s Birthday.  Since Chris and I are a bit cash-poor these days (just bought the house), I thought it would be more economical to wine and dine him at home.  This stew was inspired from a Cioppino I had at a restaurant.  The Cioppino was a bit hearty for my taste but I thought it would be more appropriate to call it a stew.  Served with crusty bread, it really hits the spot on a cold winter night.

Haemul Pajeon (Korean Seafood Pancake)

Haemul Pajeon (Korean Seafood Pancake)

There is a tiny little Korean deli I used to order my lunch from back when I was working.  And every Tuesday, their lunch special is Pajeon.  Since I left my job, I’ve been craving this dish so badly that I decided to make my own version of it at home.  I have to say it’s pretty close to the ones I used to get at the deli or any Korean restaurants.  Enjoy!

Cioppino

Cioppino

Over the weekend I was craving for some seafood stew.  I didn’t care that it was stew-inappropriate weather.  I’m one of those people that can eat soups and stews regardless how hot it is outside, as long as I’m craving it —I’m having it.  There’s a local bakery that makes AMAZING breads —got a French baguette to go with the meal.  It was heaven!

Spicy Tuna Poke

Spicy Tuna Poke

Last night, Chris and I had Hawaiian food for dinner.  It took me back to the times when we vacationed in Hawaii and all the wonderful poke dishes we had.  I was inspired to make my own version of tuna poke at home.  This is awesome with some rice and a side of macaroni salad (not pictured).  I didn’t make the salad, as I was lazy.  I’ll have a write-up of the recipe soon in another post.

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

I was feeling a bit lazy today and didn’t want to go through a lot of trouble cooking dinner tonight.  Since I had some asparagus and defrosted shrimp, I thought I’d combine the two.  I also had some carrots so I threw that in.  Took no time at all —I was done cooking within 45 minutes.
