Salmon Pineapple Poke

My salmon pineapple poke has thinly sliced crunchy cucumber, pineapple chunks, sesame seeds, chives, sushi-grade fresh salmon, a delicious sauce, and pineapple rice. Yum! The best part? It takes mere minutes to throw together. I adore poke, especially in the summertime when I don’t want to turn on the oven. People are intimidated to make…

Pineapple Shrimp Spring Rolls

I make spring rolls all the time and I absolutely adore this combination! There’s something about juicy pineapple with succulent shrimp that just makes you feel like you’re on vacation. I must insist you eat these with peanut sauce (recipe below). I’ll be shocked if I ever publish another spring roll same here on The Rose Table…

French White Wine Mussels

I adore mussels. In fact I pretty much die for most French peasant food. I usually make my Steamed Mussels with Fresh Tomatoes, but this week I decided to lean way French and make classic white wine mussels. This dish turned out so good, I had to write it up for you! This is a simple…

Mallorcan Scallops

A five minute dinner that’s sure to impress How gorgeous is this dish? It tastes as amazing as it looks. It’s a symphony of flavors and textures: melt-in-your-mouth seared scallops sit atop a bed of tart apple slices with crispy bacon drizzled with bourbon cream sauce. Are you swooning yet? I’m swooning. I’m calling this Mallorcan…

Flaherty’s Seafood

Come for the oysters, stay for the bread pudding I was blown away by Flaherty’s Seafood. My friend Eric and I dined at Flaherty’s one balmy Friday night on a weekend trip to Carmel, California. It’s well situated right in the middle of the action in the charming seaside village of Carmel-by-the-Sea and within walking…

Marinated Shrimp

An impressive party appetizer My mom has been making this forever and I finally made my own version of it for my Cinderella Ball. It’s such a great party recipe because it ups the flavor profile of shrimp but it’s still as easy as whisking. If you can whisk, you can make this recipe! You…

Scallop Salad

An elegant start to a meal Why did I ever stop cooking scallops? Scallops were actually one of the first dishes I learned how to cook in my college apartment. My mom always tossed hers in seasoned flour and it’s still how I make them today. Once you’ve had a scallop dredged in a well-seasoned…

Ahi Tuna Poke

Poke (rhymes with okay) is a popular dish in Hawaii that consists of super fresh raw fish tossed with sushi rice, and whatever extras you’d like. It comes together in a snap if you have chilled rice in your fridge. (You can use room temperature rice, but I prefer cold.) I served ahi tuna poke…

Rosemary Grilled Salmon

Practically everyone who’s had dinner at my house has had my Rosemary Grilled Salmon. I make it all the time because I don’t have to think twice about it and it always turns out perfect. This recipe easily doubles or halves. You can even make just one packet for yourself! I often pair this main…

Seafood Chowder with Mussels

The only thing better than a Sunday is a rainy Sunday. Those close to me know to drop by my house when it’s raining. I get into so much trouble in my kitchen on rainy days! This weekend I had a craving for seafood chowder. Here’s what I came up with. This is not a…

Birthday Dinner at Eddie V’s

Was there any doubt that I’d want oysters on my birthday? I didn’t think so! Last year I celebrated my birthday at Eddie V’s with my mom before flying off to Orlando with my sister-in-law. It was so good, we decided to reprise the experience and Eddie V’s did not disappoint. The sole purpose (see what…

Steamed Mussels with Fresh Tomatoes and Parmesan

Breaking news: this is my new favorite dish to make! I know you’re not supposed to play with your food, but mussels play back and I found it positively delightful. All in all this dish took about 15 minutes to make and, while I have no problem paying for quality food, the whole dish cost all…
