Hashbrowns and Smoked Salmon

Standard

FullSizeRender

These were really tasty! The only thing is that they weren’t very pretty – it was hard to keep the hashbrowns all together when flipping them.

Ingredients:

1 pkg. frozen shredded potatoes

5 sliced green onions

2 or 3 large eggs, beaten

1 1/2 T. flour

4 oz. smoked salmon

Directions:

Combine 3 green onions, potatoes and eggs in a large bowl. Add the flour and some salt.

Heat some olive oil in a pan. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, portion out about 4 potato patties into the pan. Press them down with a spatula and cook them until the are browned on the bottom. CAREFULLY flip them over and cook the bottom. Cover them if they are still uncooked until soft. Plate them to a dish and keep them warm.

Continue making hashbrown patties until you are done with the potatoes.

Place a slice of smoked salmon on top of each hashbrown patty. Top with the remaining green onions.

Stacked Enchiladas

Standard

This is a great way to use up left over chicken – and it’s also a great enchilada sauce recipe to be used whenever you need it!

Ingredients for sauce:

1 small red onion, sliced

Chopped jalapenos to taste

1 cup tomato sauce (I used my homemade marinara sauce)

Cumin to taste

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/2 c. chicken broth

Ingredients for the enchiladas:

Sauce from above

3 corn tortillas

3 chopped green onions

9 oz shredded or chopped chicken

Shredded Mexican cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425. Saute the onions, garlic, and jalapenos in a little olive oil. Add the tomato sauce and cumin. Add the broth. Cook until well blended. Season with salt & pepper. Using an immersion blender, puree until smooth. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine the chicken with the green onions. Season with salt & pepper.

Grease the bottom of a casserole dish. Place one layer of tortillas, cutting them to fit. Do not overlap! Layer with some sauce, chicken, and cheese. Repeat until you finish with the chicken & cheese.

Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Standard

This recipe would be great with any firm white fish – I just happened to find cod fish at Trader Joe’s and it was delicious.

Ingredients:

2 lbs. cod fish

1/4 c butter, melted

Lemon rind to taste

Juice of 1 lemon

Chopped parsley

Chopped green onions

Flour for dredging

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350. Dry the fish fillets.

Dredge them in flour and place them in a greased baking dish.

Season with salt and pepper.

Combine the melted butter, lemon rind, and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the chopped parsley. Pour over the fish fillets.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve.

Beef and Garlic Asian Noodles

Standard

FullSizeRender (1)

Evidently Asian noodles are quite different than regular pasta noodles – luckily I thought of looking for some at the grocery store rather than just using the pasta noodles I had at home. I used chow mein noodles and they turned out great – plus, they cook really quickly!

Ingredients:

1 package chow mein noodles, cooked and drained

1 lb. beef  chunks (use a good quality meat) РI used sirloin tips

3 green onions, sliced

4 garlic cloves, chopped

2 T. brown sugar

2 T. soy sauce

Directions:

Heat some olive oil in a wok. Add the green onions and garlic and cook for a few minutes.

Add the beef chunks and brown well.

Add the brown sugar and soy sauce. Stir well until all combined.

Add in the noodles and mix altogether. Serve!
