If you’ve never paired salmon with cucumbers, you are missing out. It’s a surprisingly natural combination, and since both are in season now, I thought I’d put them together in a pretty little date-night dish.
Fresh cured anchovies sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn’t. This is more like a ceviche than the red, salty anchovies you get in a can. Called boquerones in Spain and gavros in Greece, these are fantastic on crackers or by themselves.
Grilled venison tacos. Yeah, baby. This is summer comfort food at its best. Venison backstrap or flank steak grilled medium-rare, sliced thin and piled onto tortillas and all kinds of accompaniments. Who doesn’t love taco night?
Elderberries are in season here in California, and one of my favorite ways to enjoy them during our hot summers is in ice cream. Here’s how to make it.
Little mountain trout, grilled simply and served simply. This is one of the iconic foods of the outdoors, one technique you should master if you chase these little torpedoes of quicksilver. Here’s how to grill trout without it sticking.
Hooray! The first tomatoes of the season are here in NorCal! This, as usual, coincides with the Pacific rock cod opener, and as I got a gorgeous vermillion rock cod (commonly known as a red snapper here), I thought I’d celebrate the two with this dish.
I love fried clams. A lot. Maybe too much. My sisters will attest to this. Well, this is how they make fried clams in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, where I’ve been eating giant baskets of them since at least 1974. This recipe is so good you’ll want to head out to the clam flats ASAP.
This is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever made: Jalapenos, fire-roasted, then smoked, then preserved with a little vinegar and oil. Put that on a taco and you will absolutely not be sorry!
