Baked salmon is one of the easiest recipes, and it’s so nutritious. This is a really easy and tasty combination of flavors. My mum thought it was the best salmon she’d tasted from me.
A reader emailed me a few months ago asking for a Paleo tuna casserole recipe, and I realized that I had zero idea what that was, having not grown up in the US!
What is Tuna Casserole
For those of you that also never had tuna casserole before, Wikipedia describes it as “a casserole mainly composed of egg noodles (or some other starch such as rice) and canned tuna fish, with canned peas and corn sometimes added,” and topped with something crunchy like potato chips.
I love visiting Asian supermarkets, because you get to see so many great fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafoods!
In Vancouver, there’s a ton of Asian supermarkets and a ton of seafood, so sashimi seemed like a great option to pick up at my local H-Mart. Since you don’t have to cook anything, this paleo sashimi salad with kale and mangos is super fast to make. It’s fantastic as an appetizer or a quick lunch.
This is a great tuna salad for when you don’t have any Paleo mayo handy! This Paleo Italian tuna salad recipe uses olive oil instead of mayo to make the tuna moist and tasty.
Jeremy always talks about his childhood spent eating and drinking non-Paleo classics like chocolate milk, bologna sandwiches, cherry coke, and popcorn shrimp (things I thankfully missed out on growing up in England). But, I thought I’d bring back some of his childhood foods by recreating Paleo versions of them. The Paleo popcorn shrimp recipe turned out amazingly well (in fact, Jeremy thought it was probably better than what he remembered!).
I’m a big fan of soups, especially during the winter months. And the best thing about soups is that they’re really really easy to make and can be an entire meal!
This easy seafood soup is so nutritious and filling – it’s packed with vegetables, coconut milk, and your choice of seafood.
I was really skeptical about this soup when I first had it at a Thai restaurant in Los Angeles 10 years ago. It was 3am in the morning, the restaurant was packed, and the menu was completely foreign to me.
Just the first taste told me that I had definitely picked a winner. It was amazing – so flavorful, so creamy, and omg so spicy!
I finished the entire bowl despite the fact that it was way too spicy for me. It was just that good!
That soup I ordered was Tom Kha Gai, which translates to “Chicken Galangal Soup.”
Does the thought of buying and cooking lobster terrify you?
It’s such an expensive food, and if you mess it up, then that’s tons of money down the drain!
I used to think that way too – I even hated ordering it in restaurants because it was so ridiculously expensive and I was always afraid it wouldn’t be cooked just perfect!
So, what made me change my mind?
- Not that expensive. I realized that buying and cooking your own lobster wasn’t all that expensive! Costco sells a pack of 4 lobster tails frozen for $24. You can actually buy it for a tiny bit cheaper from certain Costcos in their fresh seafood department. I’m clearly not saying this is a cheap meat, but 1 lobster tail per meal per person ($6) is generally enough with a little bit of other meats and vegetables.
- Seriously nutritious! It really shocked me when I looked up the nutritional data of lobsters. I knew I liked eating lobster, but I didn’t realize just how spot on my taste buds were! In 100g of lobster meat (which is probably just more than one of those lobster tails from Costco), there is 52% of your Daily Value of Vitamin B12 (that’s the crucial vitamin found only in meat and which is essential in maintaining proper brain function).And that’s not all, that same lobster tail also has 91% of your Daily Value of copper as well as a ton of other vitamins and minerals (check it out for yourself here).PLUS, and this is probably the best part of lobster’s nutrition profile…its omega-3 to omega-6 fat ratio is insanely good (86mg to 5mg per 100g)!
My mum has cooked my entire life. She has also worked my entire life and was often at work late (she has a PhD in material science has worked for Oxford University as well as IBM in the past).
Despite her exhausting job, every night she would come home and cook an entire meal from scratch for me and my dad (he hates eating leftovers and loves to eat a ton of food). I think this made her amazingly good at cooking quick meals with whatever we had in the fridge.
This fish bake is a dish she’s been making recently – I love it because it’s an entire meal in one large casserole dish. You can double or triple the recipe easily depending on how many people you want to feed. And it takes just a few minutes to chop everything up – after that, you can put your feet up and relax.
