After a few evenings of fish and chips or baked salmon, sometimes at-home chefs aren’t sure what direction to take their serving up of seafood. Fortunately, there are plenty of other options out there, from the less healthy to the delicious and nutritious world of Alaska scallops. Perfect for serving up with pasta or even as the key ingredient to their very own dish, Alaska scallops are a wonderful alternative to the more conventional or typical seafood fare that people are used to enjoying at home. And best of all, those who aren’t particularly experienced in the kitchen will find that these recipes don’t require an excess amount of expertise to prepare well.

For the best basic scallops recipe, all that is really required is some butter and some garlic, with a few other ingredients for good measure. A classic baked scallops recipe involves combining breadcrumbs, garlic powder, paprika, and three cloves of minced garlic, then sprinkling that mixture over scallops and placing them in a well-buttered casserole dish. Bake that for 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and a hearty and tasty meal will be ready for the whole family.

Any typical seafood pasta recipe that has been used countless times with shrimp can also be enjoyed with scallops, too. For those who aren’t interested in the ins and outs of really getting into all new dishes, just learn how to properly cook scallops to the desired taste and texture, and then toss than on top of a bed of angel hair pasta with a few other ingredients for good measure.

Alaska scallops also taste great seared. Combine half a cup of flour, two teaspoons of salt, half a teaspoon of dried thyme, half a teaspoon of dried organ, and two tablespoons of lemon pepper in a bowl, and then roll 16 sea scallops in the mixture until they are lightly coated on all sides. Next, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet on high heat, and add four scallops to the pan at a time, searing them on all sides (that’s about two minutes per side). Once all the scallops are done being seared, serve them with a squeeze of lemon and enjoy.

The Italians call this dish ‘Pasta al Tonno’ – Pasta with Tuna. This is one of the tastiest and best recipes ever for a healthy tuna spaghetti sauce. However, this is one of those recipes that can easily be dismissed as it is so quick and easy to make. You know what they say, ‘the simple things in life are often the best’, and in this case it is definitely true.
Mediterranean diets are considered very healthy due to the inclusion of lots of seafood, vegetables and, of course, olive oil. Contrary to popular belief, the pasta element in that diet is very healthy as well, as most good pasta is made from durum wheat. Now, durum wheat is no ordinary wheat. It is also referred to as ‘semolina wheat’, an excellent source of complex carbohydrates and is low-GI as well.

With only a few ingredients from your pantry and fridge, you can whip this dish up in around 30 minutes or less. You get to decide on the amount of olive oil you wish to include, for a low-fat version of this sauce, use tuna in brine or spring water, and only use a tablespoon or two of oil. This recipe makes quite a lot of sauce, simply freeze any leftovers for another quick and healthy meal.

Here’s what you will need:

425g Tinned Tuna
2 x 800g Can Crushed Tomatoes
3 to 4 Anchovy Fillets (optional)
1 Onion
Bunch of Parsley
1 Carrot
¼ Cup Olive Oil (use less for low-fat version)

500g Packet Spaghetti

Directions:

Dice onions, grate carrot, sautee in olive oil, when onions are transparent add anchovies if you’re using them. You don’t actually taste the anchovies in the finished sauce, but it adds a certain depth of flavour.

Add Chopped Parsley. Then add Tuna and sautee for a few minutes.

Add Crushed Tomatoes and cook on low heat until you see a little of the oil rising to the top of the sauce.

In the meantime: While the sauce is cooking – Cook Spaghetti according to packet instructions.

Finally: Serve the sauce over the spaghetti and enjoy!

Once you’ve tried this sauce, I hope it will become one of your best recipes ever as well.

Quick Tip: All good Italian tomato based sauces need to be cooked until the tomatoes ‘curdle’ and some of the oil separates and rises to the top – then you know it’s done.

One More Tip: In case you were wondering where the grated parmesan went – It is not usual to have parmesan cheese on seafood based pasta sauces.

This recipe combines the sweet flavors of both apples and sweet potatoes. These foods can both be peeled making them acceptable to most people observing Passover. You also use carrots, which again be peeled. Since I usually have a lot of guests for meals, this recipe makes two 9×13 dishes of the kugel. Once cooked, you can freeze one of the casseroles and use it later in the week. By making the dish parve, it’s a great addition to a seder meal.

This is actually a kugel that you can use year round. During Passover, the recipe calls for matzah meal. During the rest of the year you can use either flour or matzah meal. We love having kugels as a side dish throughout the year, so many of my kugel recipes we alter at Passover and then use year round.

You will need some type of food processor for this recipe. I know my mom used to grate by hand and it would take hours. Using a food processor, grate six peeled apples, three peeled sweet potatoes and eight peeled carrots.

Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl. Mix with:

4 cups of matzah meal
2 cups of melted butter
2 teaspoons of salt
1 tablespoon of baking soda
3 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
A small amount of nutmeg

Generously grease the casserole dishes. Equally divide the batter between the two dishes. Cover dishes and bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes. Turn the temperature up to 350, remove cover and bake an additional fifteen minutes. The dish should be browned on top.

If you want this kugel to be parve, use a non dairy margarine instead of butter. Also, I seldom use the amount of butter called for. I try to cut as much as I can without affecting the taste of the recipe. Try cutting out about ¼ cup of the butter. Replace with ¼ cup orange juice. You do need the liquid and the orange juice is a great addition to the taste of this kugel.

Over the years, I’ve tasted other sweet potato kugels that have other ingredients in them. For example, you can add raisins. If you do add raisins, remove the carrots from this recipe and instead add in one cup of raisins after processing the apples and potatoes.

I’ve also seen people put in chopped walnuts. We are not a walnut loving family so I don’t add nuts to most dishes. Try adding in ¾ cup chopped walnuts if you enjoy the nutty flavor.

Finally, three cups of sugar is a lot of sugar. Make a batch for your family cutting out one of the cups of sugar. See if it’s sweet enough for your family.

I always use recipes as a base and then taste test from there until I find combinations that work for me and my family.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful Passover recipe.
