Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I was looking for a quick weeknight recipe to take advantage of the warmer weather we are finally starting to experience here in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than fall back on the standby of using a pre-mixed herb blend from the spice drawer, I decided to try something using fresh ingredients instead.  The resulting lemon pepper marinade was great with pork chops, and would be equally tasty with chicken or fresh shrimp and scallops.

Lemon Garlic and Ginger Shrimp

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I had elk steaks thawed out to go on the grill, and Karen had picked up a pound of pre-cooked shrimp from our local seafood market.  Since steak and shrimp go together so well, I decided to throw this together to compliment the steaks.  The prep and cooking time are almost nothing since the shrimp are already cooked – so you can get the ingredients ready and quickly cook them while your steaks are “resting” after coming off the grill.

Creamy Coconut Shrimp

Not too far from us there is a great seafood store.  I love to buy my Old Bay seasoning there.  They usually have a great selection of wild caught seafood. My girls love to look at the live clams.  Stopping in the other day I saw some shrimp and decided to grab some.  I made up this recipe really quick and it was a delicious meal combined with a salad, or it could even be the “surf” in your “surf and turf” meal.

Fennel Citrus Shrimp

Sitting on our counter is a manila folder that is filled over an inch thick with various recipes clipped from magazines, newspapers, or internet sites that we’ve been meaning to try.  Some are “good to go” as they are, using all primal ingredients, while others are will require a little substitution (or a lot) to make them work.  And even the ones that are primal-ready won’t make their way onto our site without some tweaking, because that’s just our nature.  Plus, we’re going to make darn sure that we’ve cooked and approved them ourselves before we pass them on to anyone else.

This recipe is one from that folder, which only took a couple minor tweaks.  It’s quick to prepare, and can be used as a main course, an “accompanying” dish (think surf and turf), or over a mix of greens for an excellent lunch.  So let’s get started…

Jalepeno Ginger Prawns & Scallops

I love the flavor and texture of many seafoods – especially wild sea scallops and tiger prawns.  Prepared by searing quickly at high heat, just to the point of being cooked through, they go well with a marinade using citrus – especially lime.  And two flavors that complement lime in a good seafood marinade are ginger and jalapeño.  For a real treat, cook them over a fire of alder wood (chips or pellets work too) to add just a touch of mild smokiness…
