The Tastiness of Tilapia

Spicy Citrus Tilapia with Asian Noodles

May 10th 2011By Jamie Geller

Today is Tilapia Tuesday – well, at least this week. And yes, I confess to being an unabashedly biased fish lover, which is why this is Fish Week at JoK. Not sure why I chose this week; maybe because the weather is (finally!) beautiful and springy, and I start leaning toward lighter and heart-healthier proteins. I mean, there’s something about frosty winter nights that make a hearty beef dish just perfect. But then warm spring weather blows in, we start heading for lakes and beaches, and suddenly, I’m thinking of fish!


Spectacular Salmon

Salmon tastes great, is relatively affordable, easy to prepare and a healthy alternative to red meat.


Snap up Some Snapper

Red Snapper with Asian Noodles

May 12th 2011By Jamie Geller

Whenever I hear the words “red snapper,” I think of a sassy fish with attitude. Actually, that’s not so far off. Red Snapper has a faintly nutty flavor and a firm texture, which is great for picking up subtle spices, as well as those in-your-face hot chili sauces! It’s a little pricier than trout or tilapia, but well worth it, if you ask me


Mouthwatering Miso Glazed Sea Bass

Miso Glazed Sea Bass

May 13th 2011By Jamie Geller

Our fabulous Fish Week has almost come to an end, but I’ve been saving one more fantabulous recipe for the Grand Fish Finale: it’s a beautifully delicate Miso Glazed Sea Bass. Closely related to the grouper, the flesh of a sea bass is firm, but it has a mild texture. That firmness makes it ideal for soups and chowders, for it holds its shape really nicely.


30 Minute Meal: Mediterranean Baked Trout with Fennel Salad

Whole Baked Trout with Fennel

May 11th 2011By Jamie Geller

Trout. The word itself is plaid and sporty, evoking images of anglers standing in pristine waters at break of day. They want to bring home the Big One, a fish worthy of the effort and patience invested in catching it. Have you ever gone trout fishing and experienced that ecstatic rush when you feel a tug at the end of your line? Ok, neither have I.


30 Minute Meal – Delicious Avocado Stuffed Salmon

Avocado Stuffed Salmon with Wild Rice

May 10th 2011By Jamie Geller

As everyone knows, this is official Fish Week. Well, ok, not everybody knows, at least not yet. But here at JoK, we are proud to announce Fish Week. Why? Because I love fish, because it’s healthy, and for the best reason: why not?
