Mediterranean Baked Cod

Isn’t this dish gorgeous? It has some of my favorite things: olives, wine, herbs, and capers! It’s amazing how just a few ingredients can lead to such a flavorful dish. This is quick and easy enough to turn into a healthy weeknight staple. I admit, cod is not my favorite fish (unless it’s fried in…

Pan-fried Tilapia

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: I’m just a simple Irish lass at heart and I cannot count how many times I’ve made this dish. I make this all the bloody time yet I’m just now posting it here. This is one of my favorite weeknight staples because it’s fast,…

Lomi Lomi Salmon

Hawaii’s twist on gravlax You guys know how much I adore gravlax. I make Norwegian Gravlax all the time! (Recipe here.) When I read that lomi lomi salmon is Hawaii’s version of gravlax and a popular Christmas dish in Hawaii, I couldn’t wait to try it. I did a ton of research on lomi lomi…

Strawberry Salmon Salad

I’ve been making this same salad since my college days! I absolutely love the combination of salmon and strawberries. If you’ve never tried it, please do! The two go perfectly together, especially with the crunch of toasted sliced almonds and the saltiness of Feta cheese. It’s a perfect summer salad that’s as delicious as it…

Salmon Pineapple Poke

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…
