Ceviche9

Ceviche de Camarones has to one of my favorite quick weeknight meals. It takes no time to prepare and is so full of flavor. Ceviche can be enjoyed over warm white rice as a main course or even as an impressive appetizer at your next holiday party! Serve with crispy tostones or Tostitos chips and let your guest dig in! Besides being incredibly delicious did you know that shrimp ceviche is one of the best guilt free things to eat when trying to lose weight! It’s high in essential nutrients and low in calories. Fish is recommended to people with high cholesterol levels, those at risk of heart disease, and even people who seek to stave of senile dementia, or Alzheimer’s Disease. Eating more fish is a great way to lose weight and stay fit!

Crispy Tempura Shrimp with Sweet and Sour Sauce

Who new that crispy tempura shrimp was so easy to make! Don’t they look amazing? Crunchy, flavorful, and best of all fresh out of your own kitchen. No more waiting for the delivery guy and no more wondering if the food will come out good that day. Maybe it’s just me but I have tried out several Chinese food places around and have yet to find one that serves consistent good quality food every single time. Some days it’s great others not so much. Now I don’t have to worry anymore and neither do you. This tempura dish is ridiculously easy to make and takes no time at all. You can even substitute the shrimp for another meat or vegetable of your choice! The secret is the tempura batter. Once you have that made you can tempura just about anything. Another amazing and super simple recipe that I’ve added to this post is the sweet and sour sauce usually served with a tempura dish. You won’t even believe how easy it is! I’ll be honest when I first read the ingredients I was pretty skeptical. But 5 minutes later the sauce was made and tasted exactly like the restaurant!

Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki Salmon (Trout)

Dave and I wanted to incorporate more fish into our list of dinner ideas. While browsing through the market we came across this really beautiful filet of salmon. This thing was huge! Dave had a great idea to try making teriyaki salmon. After looking through a few brands of teriyaki sauce we found that Soy Vay was not only highly rated but contained the least amount of ingredients I couldn’t read. So we gave it a shot. I have to be completely honest with you. I was totally skeptical about this recipe. I had never made salmon before nor have I used this brand of sauce. I expected either no flavor or for it to come out too salty. I don’t know why but I thought making fish was going to be this very difficult process. I was ready for the fish to stick or fall apart and maybe even burn. I was ready for this dinner to be a “learning experience” for next time.
