Honey Lime Shrimp

I had a bunch of leftover tropical salsa from our Cajun Chicken with Pineapple and Mango Salsa recipe, and so I decided it was taco time!  I found a bunch of jumbo shrimp on sale at the store and I came across a recipe for Honey Lime Shrimp with Margarita Slaw that I wanted to … Continue reading

Salmon with Pomegranate Orange Salsa

In typical Jen/Natalya fashion, I was trying to search for recipes that could incorporate leftover ingredients from previous meals. This time the ingredient du jour was pomegranate. I had used it for the Turkish-Spiced Chicken Kebabs with Pomegranate Relish and had leftovers. So I searched the web and saw this South-American inspired recipe (courtesy of … Continue reading

Food Comas Turns 1!

May 13th marks a special day for us here… Food Comas turns 1 year old today!  Exactly one year ago, I wrote my first ever blog post on Baby Lamb Chops with Cucumber-Mint Relish.  I didn’t really know what I was doing (regarding both cooking and blogging) but I went for it anyway.  At first, … Continue reading

Tequila Lime Shrimp Tacos

For our Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, Natalya and I decided to set up a taco station.  On our lazier days, we just cook some ground beef with a packet taco seasoning, but I wanted to do something different.  I was debating about making some pulled chicken in the same way we did for our Layered … Continue reading

Pan-Roasted Halibut

San Francisco-Style Cioppino

Don’t know what cioppino is?  Neither did I, even though apparently this fish stew originated from where I grew up!  But then again, whenever I dined out in San Francisco, my family only took me to Chinatown so I think I can be excused from this lack of knowledge… oh well now is the time … Continue reading

Baked Fish Tacos

After having a wonderful dinner at Barmarché, I could not stop craving their amazing Crispy Bass Taquitos in soft-shelled flour tortillas with guacamole, pico de gallo & apple cider slaw.  I have made Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa before and figured… why not try fish?  So when I was doing my regular grocery shopping, I … Continue reading
