by Lauren

Fish skewers just might be my go to summer dish. I’m in love with the crisp outside of the flakey fish, the smoky flavor from the charcoal, and the lack of dishes.

It’s a light and healthy meal that takes less time than most to make. My first fish kabob was this one which included prosciutto woven between the layers…it was a winner. Then the salmon in our freezer led to me try another spin on the kabob and I … Read more...

Now back to the food.

Fish. I was craving fish. Probably for two weeks. Then I saw some nice wild, fresh caught salmon fillets, ready for me to take home. Score.

A Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwich {with a secret ingredient}

by Lauren

Alright, I’ll give it to you right off the bat. The secret ingredient is: lemon pepper. I know it sounds a bit anticlimactic but it really makes a world of difference on this breakfast sandwich.

Lemon and salmon are quite the pairing in any situation; smoked, raw, or seared. Add cream cheese into the mix and you can’t go wrong. Spend a little extra money and go for the heirloom tomato too; you won’t regret it.
