Grilled Blackened Catfish

I was born and raised on the east coast, my mother was born and raised in the country part of Florida.. so many people tell me that makes me southern (*laughs* I do have a slight southern drawl). So today I decided to post more of my ‘favorite foods‘.. and I’m starting off with this beautiful Grilled Blackened Catfish recipe from Chow. I grew up eating fresh, gulf caught catfish with grits and let me just tell you.. those memories are making me hungry right now (laughs). This dish is a great way to enjoy fish with a kick of creole seasoning. View the ingredient list below and click above for the recipe. Another recipe.. is on its way..

Fish Tacos

And for dinner.. I found the most amazing, healthy Fish Taco recipe from the food website Chow. What makes this fish taco healthy is the use of a grilled fish instead of frying the fish. But if you had a light breakfast, then try it fried (it’s great both ways in my opinion). I also love how easy and versatile this dish is. For instance, you can make a more authentic fish taco, or you can live on the edge and let your taste buds dictate what you eat (which is usually what I do).  View the ingredient list below, and click above for the full recipe. Happy Friday :)

Fish & Chips w/Homemade Tartar Sauce

Today.. I’m honoring seafood in a big way. Not only will I post one seafood recipe, but I’ve added a second that will post this afternoon as well. So let’s start off with a classic dish. This Fish & Chips recipe comes from the chef Tyler Florence, courtesy of This recipe is very easy to make, and would be great to have for dinner or during an outdoor party with family and friends. This looks so delicious.. and those fries (chips) are calling me.. even when I know they aren’t good for me but I give in sometimes (laughs).
