Slow Cooker Short Ribs (yes, another one)

This is the week of me sharing recipes I enjoy making but then I forget to take pictures of them. “Oops Week” maybe? Well, this is a super easy slow cooker recipe that makes my slow cooker extra valuable. I made short ribs in the slow cooker before but this recipe takes the yumminess of short ribs and makes them even easier to cook. This is not for a spur of the moment dinner, though. It cooks for 9 !!! hours and you need to marinate it overnight first, so there’s that. But otherwise, you just dump it all in and turn it on. Super easy. And no browning of the meat required!

Sesame Beef Bowl

For today’s recipe I came across a recipe that looked fairly simple and fast but still appealing to us. I made some changes and it was so easy and delicious!

Meatballs with Soy-Ginger Glaze

I’m still playing catch-up on here. This recipe was one I made back in March, but to be honest, it’s kind of nice. I can look back and be reminded of recipes I want to make again. This was an easy recipe and you could follow the original recipe to do ground turkey, but we prefer ground beef.

Foil Packet Salmon, Spinach, and Mushrooms

Before you get on my case, I promise this white fish is salmon. Say what? Yeah. There was a new (to me) type of King Salmon available at my Costco and I was curious. I was going to pass on it until a stranger told me more about it. He said if I like King Salmon and had never had this type, that I should try it. I keep forgetting the name, but it is named for a river between BC and Alaska. It was a really nice piece of fish. Tender, moist, and all yummy fish traits without being “fishy”…not that that bothers me as much. But, this was still wild (troll) caught and I know wild fish tend to be fishier to some people.

Asian Baked Rockfish

I’m back with a Fish Friday post! I haven’t shared any fish recipes for a while. This one isn’t anything fancy. In fact, I had a few “fancy” ideas for the rockfish we bought. I was thinking of a tomato sauce, maybe putting a coating on it…there were a few ideas. Then, just before I was going to make it, K made a request. At his work’s cafeteria, there was some sort of ginger fish dish that sounded good, but he had not gotten it. He wanted something like that. Now, I had made a similar dish with salmon before and decided to do a similar version for the rockfish. K’s family usually steams fish, but my family always baked it, so that’s what I do here. I asked K if he wanted to try to steam it but apparently he did not have great results previously.

Teriyaki Marinated Salmon with Quinoa

Is it okay to do another salmon recipe? Hopefully it hasn’t felt too soon for you. Basically, I can’t resist a good salmon recipe, especially when Costco is still carrying the beautiful Copper River kind. Seriously, if you love salmon and can find that variety near you, snatch it up! It is so delicious and such a nice summer food.

Ah yes, summer! It has finally started to hit here in Seattle. This weekend had advisory notices from the weather people because our temperatures were in the 80s, near 90. That might not seem too crazy to everyone else, but it’s warm for here, especially lacking air conditioning. There were also lots of events going on, so I did not want a dish that would take a lot of cooking time.

Mix up the marinade, pour on the fish, go off and have a little fun, then return for a short bake in the oven and time to make some sides.
