Apples are not only good for sweet recipes, I also love pairing them with savory dishes! They are everywhere this time of the year and there are many varieties you can try with this dish. I used Golden Apples here but Granny Smith or Pink Lady would work beautifully. Now let’s talk about the gorgeous tuna that I coated with white and black sesame seeds, then seared for 30 seconds on each side until barely kissed by fire. I served it sliced over a crunchy apple salad tossed with a soy tahini honey dressing. Here’s the recipe!
What do you think of this colorful summerry light dish? Believe me, it tastes even better than it looks! It has aromatic garlic rice, spiced juicy shrimp, sweet tangy and spicy pineapple salsa, avocado slices, and some cilantro leaves. A squeeze of lime before eating is recommended. So good! A joy to prepare and eat. Check out the recipe.
I don't know why, but I always felt very close to the Mexican food culture. It's so rich, colorful, it relies on very fresh ingredients, and it reminds me in some way of my culture. Maybe because the tortilla is essential to the Mexican cuisine just like many types of flatbread are to the Lebanese cuisine. I feel like eating Mexican, much like eating Lebanese, means that you are free of all etiquette rules and you can truly enjoy it. Also, I truly love eating with my hands. It's so liberating, playful, and social. Now let's talk about these gorgeous tacos! The shrimp, onion, and bell pepper are tossed with olive oil, Mexican spices, a bit of cayenne, roasted, then served with warm tortillas, fresh guacamole, roasted corn, chili slices, chopped cilantro, and lemon wedges. It's definetly a crowd pleaser!
When the weather is cold, I crave saucy spicy foods like this recipe I am sharing with you today. Flaky Pangasius fillets served over a beautiful Thai coconut curry sauce with sugar snap peas, rice vermicelli noodles to soak all that beautiful sauce, fresh herbs, and crunchy toasted peanuts. This dish is a joy to cook as it will fill your kitchen with fragrant and appetizing smells. It's colorful, bold in flavor, and absolutely delicious!

Hey lovely people! What are your Christmas cooking plans? Hope you have it all figured out. This year, I am serving a beautiful salmon en croûte with roasted veggies and a creamy wine sauce. Two gorgeous salmon fillets stuffed with softened butter, spinach, mustard, dill, lemon zest, and chopped almond, then wrapped with puff pastry and baked until the croûte is golden and the fish is deliciously flaky. Best served with white wine! It looks festive on your table and tastes just amazing. It might look intimidating but actually it's not very hard to put together. Believe me, everyone will be very excited when you cut it on the table. Here's the recipe!
Hey all! I haven't shared a recipe for a long time and I am super excited about this one. It's not an easy recipe for sure and it's not designed for a huge crowd but let me tell you something, it will impress your guests! The salmon fillets are wrapped with paper thin potato ribbons, then pan-fried until the potato crust is crispy and the fish is perfectly moist and flaky. I served it with a creamy buttery turnips puree and roasted root veggies. This recipe celebrates the beauty and versatility of root veggies that are in season during winter. It's truly delicious especially with chilled white wine. Hope you like it!
This salad hits all the right notes: vermicelli rice noodles, crunchy veggies, fresh herbs, a bit of chili to spice it up, and toasted sesame seeds! And the dressing is perfectly balanced, creamy, it brings everything together beautifully. I use a little bit of it to glaze juicy pan-fried shrimp right before serving. So good! You can replace the shrimp with salmon, chicken, or just leave it vegetarian. Make it!
A beautiful piece of salmon does not need much work. I like to pair a nice salmon fillet with subtle flavors that complement its amazing taste. Some olive oil, a bit of citrus, a touch of honey, few thyme sprigs, and of course some spice!
Making a Thai red curry paste for this dish is everything! Believe me when I tell you that if you make your own curry paste once, you'll never go back to store-bought jars again. It's a lot of work but it's so worth it. Fry some aromatics, then your paste, add coconut milk, fish sauce, honey, spinach, salmon, coriander, lime zest, lime juice, and you got yourself a delicious, comforting, saucy, to die for curry! It's best served with noodles, crunchy pistachios, and lime wedges for extra tang.
