I recently came across this lovely deceptive grain and couldn’t wait to use it in a recipe! Bucatini looks a lot like spaghetti, but is thicker and actually hollow in the middle—making it the perfect pasta to stew in any soup.
Veracruz is a tomato based sauce traditionally flavored with mostly European ingredients such as olives, garlic, and capers. I like to use tilapia in this Caribbean dish. I’ve also incorporated a heavier Spanish influence by serving it on top of homemade yellow rice.
I’m always looking for more ways to incorporate fish into my diet. These days, our diet is saturated with fats, large amounts of sugar and even more sodium. But salmon is one super food often overlooked. Packed with essential nutrients such as vitamins B12 and B3, over 80% of your daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is one of the best additions one can make to a diet if looking to shed stored fat and gain lean muscle. This dish is a tasty and fun way to incorporate all of those benefits into one amazingly flavored dish.
Sometimes I have a hankering for an exotic dish, but I still don’t feel like leaving the house or ordering in. When I get in that sort of mood, I make this relatively easy recipe below.
