Crispy Blackened Steelhead Trout with Cilantro Cream Sauce

Crispy Blackened Steelhead Trout with Cilantro Cream Sauce

Steelhead is a great alternative to salmon because it tastes very similar (just a bit more mild) and it’s a more sustainable option.  It’s an easy swap and can be found at many grocery stores or fish markets - plus it has a gorgeous bright color.

15-Minute Cauliflower and Kimchi Fried Rice

The trick to fried rice is high heat and using a wok. The high sides help when stirring the rice. You don’t want to steam the rice you want to fry it. To keep from ending up with soggy rice I also try to use day old rice that way it will be drier and will crisp better.

Fish Taco Rice Bowl with Jicama Salsa

Jicama adds a crunch to this salsa, which compliments the smoky fish. I hadn’t heard or seen jicama until I came to California but it’s like a savory apple that adds the perfect fresh flavor to salsas and salads.

Creole Jambalaya

Typically there are two main types of jambalaya, Creole and Cajun. Creole, or red jambalaya, is made with tomatoes along with the meat and vegetables. Cajun jambalaya does not have tomatoes and is more of a brownish color.
