Peruvian Cod with Shallots and Fresh Tomatos

Peruvian Cod with Shallots and Fresh Tomatos

The key to this delicious and simple fish dish is a McCormick Peruvian spice blend.  It is a mixture of paprika, cumin, garlic, lime and a pinch of sugar.  It you can't find the McCormick spice, just make your own!  I used cod for my dish, but any other mild, flaky fish will do!  I made this on the grill, but it can easily be baked. Ingredients: 5 cod fillets, dried with a paper towel 2 T The Furies EVOO 3t Peruvian spice blend 1 shallot, sliced 1 tomato, seeds removed and sliced salt and pepper to taste lime wedge Directions:...

Chopped Vegetable and Bean Salad with Lime Cumin Dressing

Chopped Vegetable and Bean Salad with Lime Cumin Dressing

Bean and legumes are an integral part of the Mediterranean Diet.  The recipe is easily adapted to whatever beans and vegetables you have on hand.  The dressing features cumin, lime and honey.  The Furies EVOO completes the dressing adding a velvety texture and fabulous fresh taste!  I like to make the salad early in the day so that the flavors have time to marinate into the beans and veggies.  It lasts well for 3-4 days in the refrigerator and makes a healthy lunch the next few days.   Salad: 1 can black beans, rinsed 1 can of pink, Great Northern beans,...

Honey Garlic Chicken Kebabs

Honey Garlic Chicken Kebabs

I love these kebabs! The flavors of the peppers and onions in this recipe are heightened by the sweet and savory marinade and the chicken is caramelized while grilling making it tender and juicy.  Ideally try to marinate the chicken for at least an hour, but when we made it last night we only had 20 minutes to spare and it was still fabulous!  Next time I make this, I may sneak in pineapple or peaches into the kebabs.  You can also trade fresh mint or basil for the parsley or cilantro. Ingredients: Marinade: 4T The Furies EVOO 1/3 c honey...

Greek Island Shrimp

Greek Island Shrimp

Baked Island Shrimp This is a classic Greek dish, is often called Shrimp Saganaki or Santorini.  Robust tomatoes and creamy feta add a luxurious taste to a quite easy dish to prepare.  I like to make it in Spring when the tomatoes are flavorful, but the evenings are still cool enough to want to have the oven warming the kitchen.  Serve over brown rice or orzo.  A large leafy green salad compliments the meal perfectly!   Ingredients: ¼ cup The Furies EVOO, plus oil for drizzling ½ cup chopped shallots or onion 2-3 cloves chopped garlic, depending on personal taste...

Salmon Chowder

Salmon Chowder

This simple soup is always a fan favorite! It is especially delicious and soothing on cold and windy days.  Furthermore, salmon soup is loaded with powerful superfoods.  Leeks are a good source of vitamins A, C, and K, and minerals iron and manganese. Fennel is high in dietary fiber, folate, and potassium.  Salmon is a tremendous protein source, is high in omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins B-12, B-6, D and selenium.  I've swapped out half of the stock with bone broth to amp up this soup's nutritional punch.   Cook with a Vengeance! Ingredients: 2T The Furies EVOO 1 onion, chopped...

This is one of my family's favorite ways to grill chicken breasts.  The marinade features rosemary, balsamic vinegar, honey and brown sugar.  Greek yogurt helps to bind all of the flavors and keeps the chicken juicy and tender.  The chicken can be marinated as little as an hour or left in the refrigerator overnight and prepared the next day.  Left over marinade can be boiled and reduced for sauce.
