Salmon Orzo Salad Recipe

10.22.13 by Jackie

Today, I prepared a salmon orzo pasta salad. The dish is fairly simple. I broke baked salmon into large pieces and combined them with orzo pasta and a variety of vegetables such as zucchini, corn, roasted bell peppers and string beans.

Baby Aria has a good appetite and given that she's more of a toddler now, she’s able to eat whatever we eat. She's becoming independent and discovers the textures, colors and tastes of new foods every day, especially since she's able to pick up food with a spoon and eat by herself. With dishes like this one, feeding kids nutrient-rich, colorful foods couldn't be easier!

Corn and Crab Soup Recipe

03.27.13 by Jackie

This crab soup , simply called súp cua in Vietnamese, was my attempt to finish the leftover crab from last night's dinner. We bought six crabs for the two people who actually eat seafood in our house, so there was a fair amount unfinished. I prepared cua rang me (Vietnamese tamarind crab) and that's basically all we ate with a little salad on the side. We were so full by the end of the meal that we could not finish the dish. It was our Mount Everest and we didn't conquer it!  

I didn't want to waste the delicious crab, so I cracked the rest and gathered the crab meat. I had chicken stock in the freezer and I thickened it with a little corn starch. I added frozen corn and green onions to the soup and the result was just as I expected: mildly sweet, velvety and wonderfully soothing. Simply perfect!

Grilled Corn on the Cob (Chili Lime Corn Recipe) Recipe

We grilled a lot of meat and vegetables yesterday, but the star of the show was grilled corn. It was so sweet! We had several with salt and just a touch of butter, but I also made a rub of lime zest, lime juice, red chili flakes, garlic and caramelized onions to balance and enhance the sweetness. 

We're not very good about making use of our grill during the summer, but after today the whole family has been inspired to prepare barbecues more regularly. Hope everyone had a great 4th!

Sour Cream Cornbread Muffin Recipe Recipe

Today, I made cream of tomato soup and decided I would replicate the same flavors in cornbread muffins. I find that cornbread muffins are a great accompaniment when teamed up with a nice bowl of warm soup. I added chopped sun-dried tomatoes and sour cream to the batter as well as small chunks of Comté cheese. The cheese gave a fruity and salty note to the muffins.

I think the addition of sour cream makes for super moist cornbread muffins. Of course, they taste best piping hot right from the oven, but they still taste great the following day.

Olive Cornbread Recipe Recipe

Olive Cornbread Recipe

02.14.12 by Jackie

I recently saw on my Facebook page that one of PhamFatale's readers made my jalapeno cornbread, which reminded me that I hadn't made any in a long time. I created a new version using oil-cured black olives and an exquisite extra virgin olive oil from Cloud 9 Orchard.

May Chevallier is a true expert on olive oil and is the owner of a 140-acre ranch in southern Monterey County, where she planted 10, 000 olive trees. She's passionate about her Cloud 9 Orchard EVOO, which has won many prestigious awards. I recently met with May and she educated me about how to discern the quality of olive oil. I learned that too often olive oil is artificially enhanced with chlorophyll for color and synthetic olive flavor. Cloud 9 Orchard is free from any of these adulterations. You can order May's extra virgin olive oil directly from her. You won't be disappointed.
