Sayadieh Bil Samek - Fish Pilaf with Caramelized Onion 2

{Guest Post} Sayadieh Bil Samek from Heather at girlichef

Today, I’ve got another wonderful guest post from a #SundaySupper blogging friend. Heather of girlichef has graciously offered this delicious recipe! I am so thrilled that my blogging friends have stepped forward to help me out as we go through this big move. I am even more excited that many of them are cooking Moroccan and Middle Eastern food for the first time (and loving it!).  THAT really makes me smile!  I can’t wait to make this dish soon – you’ll want to make it tonight too!  Find more of Heather’s great recipes on her blog, connect with her on…

Casablanca Fish Tajine

الدار البيضاء Fish Tajine for #SundaySupper

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is awesome.  I’m so excited!  Everyone is sharing a movie inspired recipe. Even though I loathe it, I wonder if you can guess which movie I’ve chosen? Want to know a little insider secret? There’s no such place as Rick’s Cafe – never was.  Flocks of tourists visit Casablanca every year to find it, and they do find a Rick’s Cafe but it’s just a tourist trap. It’s interesting to watch this movie, knowing a bit of history surrounding the area during that time.  Casablanca was certainly an international city though it’s safe to say…

Belizean Fish Serre

Belizean Fish Serre for #WeekdaySupper

Two weeks ago we were standing in the middle of the Belizean Jungle. Out the window today?  Kind of depressing isn’t it? We had the most amazing vacation and I completely fell in love with the Caribbean and Central America.  Like, head over heels in love. My only complaint was that we just didn’t have enough time! Today I’m sharing a Belizean seafood recipe for #WeekdaySupper.  What is #WeekdaySupper you ask? You’ve seen me participating in #SundaySupper for months now, but the Sunday team is also taking turns hosting a recipe each day.  We’ll share a recipe each weekday to…

Wasabi Chickpea Crusted Fish

Wasabi Chickpea Crusted Fish

When I was a little girl my grandparents would take me out for dinner every Friday night.  It wasn’t just a happy meal at McDonald’s or a tacos in a hole in the wall place.  It was a supper club. Maybe you have never been to a supper club but they are a thing of legend here in the Midwest. Traditionally, a supper club was a destination, where patrons could go for the evening and not just a meal.  Cocktail hour, a slow paced sit down dinner and of course dessert all at a reasonable price. (Because here in the…

Citrus Grilled Salmon

Whew!!  This was one of the longest weeks I’ve had in a long time.  Generally I only work part-time at my day job however we had a big fundraising event this week (of which I am in charge) and frankly I barely had time to sleep and eat.  I believe I punched about 50 hours in a little over 4 days.  The good news is that things went great!  I’ll be sharing some pictures on here because the event was literature based around books.  It was a lot of fun! We’re down to under two weeks before our big vacation…

Fish with Charmoula

Oven Baked Fish with Charmoula

  So how hot is it by you?  It’s scorching here – the heat index soared above 100F today and sweat beads were dripping off my face anytime I set foot outside.  It’s safe to say I’m not cooking in the house.  Why you might ask…we don’t have central air.  So today’s recipe is one from my archives.  I’ve got 5 weeks of posts coming up that have been planned and are being tweaked as we speak so there is going to be a lot of new things coming your way!  If you’re getting ready for Ramadan I encourage you…

Broiled Whitefish with Mustard Sauce

I gave Julia another shot, but this time it was just a sauce and a method for cooking mushrooms.  All in all this was a really great dinner.  I paired the fish with a whole wheat couscous and vegetable side dish.   Me and the husband really loved this.  The best part was it was fast and tasty! I used some orange roughy that was in the freezer, defrosted and topped with salt, pepper and lemon.  I put two small pats of butter on each fillet.  Then I broiled in the oven until cooked through.  The mustard sauce starts with…
