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.

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...
