Fajita Night

Fajita Night

Fajitas are the ultimate family style meal. I love loading all of my toppings onto a platter and serving it as a Southwest Charcuterie. With most of the prep done in advance, Fajitas make for a great on-the-go lunch or last minute dinner. Big flavors of SKORDO Fajita Rub, Chile Lime Sea Salt, and Sazon all get wrapped in warm tortillas with juicy steak and tender veggies, you truly can't mess this one up!

Green Thai Curry Salmon

Green Thai Curry Salmon

Green Thai Curry is the most unique to our other curry blends, with bright flavors from ginger, lemongrass, and Makrut lime leaves. This bold + refreshing curry powder blends beautifully with coconut milk + fresh herbs. To help the powder dissolve evenly into the sauce, I first made a paste with oil + water, you can read more about the process in our SKORDO Kitchen Blog: From Powders to Pastes.

Strip Steak with Harissa Butter and Parsley Salad

Strip Steak with Harissa Butter and Parsley Salad

What a perfect weeknight meal. It's quick, bursting with flavor and satisfying! Coming from Antoni Porowski's, of Netflix's Queer Eye, new cookbook Let's Do Dinner, this is a recipe I'll be using again and again. The book's recipes reference his role on the show. It's packed with how to's that are fun and inviting. 

One tip on this recipe, don't skimp on the fresh lemon zest! It heightens the Harissa and cuts the richness of the butter in the best ways. Our steak was served with roasted cauliflower and I added husk cherries to the salad for a bit of sweetness.

Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi is a classic crowd pleaser. Kept simple with only a handful of ingredients, what you're really tasting here is love + the natural beauties of garlic + butter. SKORDO Italian Seasoning + SKORDO Lemon Rosemary Sea Salt compliment this dish so nicely and are delicious when sopped up with crusty bread.

Chickpea, Quinoa, and White Bean Chili

Chickpea, Quinoa, and White Bean Chili

It's hard to find a chili I don't like, so I had high expectations for even the healthiest of versions. This was delicious, I didn't miss a thing! A great recipe from Antoni's new cookbook, Antoni, Let's Do Dinner. We amped up the flavor with Chili Seasoning instead of chile powder. Our spice blend has three types of Chile powders: Chipotle, New Mexico, and Ancho. Top this simple recipe with your favorites additions and you've got a delicious healthy meal.

Tamarind-Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash with Chile Yogurt

Tamarind-Maple-Glazed Acorn Squash with Chile Yogurt

"Fruity, tangy tamarind joins forces with maple syrup to heighten the earthy sweetness of roasted squash. Cool yogurt spiked with smoky chiles adds more layers of flavor and texture" With some adaptations to utilize SKORDO ingredients, this recipe from Everyone's Table by Gregory Gourdet was a delightful way to dive into the fall season.

Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Sometimes you remove the carbs and cheese and you really miss them. That was not the case with this recipe, and that's all to do with the powerful flavor of Jerk Seasoning. We hand blend coconut sugar, onion, garlic, paprika, allspice, and more to create this unique and iconic blend. This classic spicy Jamaican blend adds a ton of flavor to otherwise boring chicken breast, and the creamy Greek Yogurt sauce on top plus your favorite sweet salsa is a delicious combination. We ate this last weekend for dinner, wanting to eat healthy after a weekend of fried food, and it was (literally) finger-licking good. We've never been to Jamaica, but this recipe will help pass the time until we can try more from this delicious cuisine. Give it a try!

Stewed Pork Shoulder with Cumin, Chipotle, and Ancho Chiles

Stewed Pork Shoulder with Cumin, Chipotle, and Ancho Chiles

This hearty one pot meal is something that belongs at everyone's table. Fitting that it comes from Everyone's Table by Greggory Gourdet. After a drunken car crash, and decades of tearing down his body with work and recreation, Greggory "took stock of his body and decided to start caring for it instead" He did this by exploring new forms of exercises and different styles of diets until he found the balance. He refers to this book as "a reflection of the food he cooks for his friends and for himself", it has become an incredible variety of fulfilling foods, that you wouldn't immediately recognize as carefully formulated + nutritionally balanced. He describes the women in his family as "each having a fragrance", and recalls dishes reflective of each of them. This love, and these depths of flavors, carry over throughout the book, with Haitian influence. It was hard to choose where to start, but with a rainy day ahead of me, I went for the stewed pork, using some of SKORDO's dried chiles

Greek grilled lamb chops make an impressive dish for a special occasion or company, but are very simple to make. Our family's Greek Lamb Rub has all the Mediterranean flavors that pair so well with lamb: garlic, Greek oregano, cinnamon, nutmeg, parsley.

Spicy Sautéed Shiitakes

Spicy Sautéed Shiitakes

This recipe from Vegetable Simple by Eric Ripert is a great staple to have on hand for snacks or sides. From start to finish it truly only takes 5 minutes! I used dried mushrooms, and finished with SKORDO Sriracha Sea Salt + SKORDO Herbes de Provence, these are all pantry staples for me so this was perfect.

Za'atar Zucchini and Mascarpone Slab Galette

Za'atar Zucchini and Mascarpone Slab Galette

The perfect recipe for all the zucchinis available this time of year, Za'atar Zucchini and Mascarpone Slab Galette... we made this at our big family dinner the other night and even the meat lovers were coming back for seconds. We love the flaky, buttery cornmeal crust (it actually has flavor!), and the creamy mascarpone paired with toasted spices and zucchini make a wonderfully delicious dish.

Glass Noodle Salad with Pork, Cucumber, and Lemongrass

What a perfect dish for summer! We had a wonderful evening cooking and eating from Eat Cool and were lucky enough for Vanessa to join us. Read about the full menu and evening here. She made the delicious glass noodle salad with pork, cucumber, lemongrass, and used our Vietnamese Pork Rub in there to add some authentic Vietnamese flavor. We were slurping up this dish - it was so flavorful and savory. Highly recommend!
