Mediterranean Stuffed Baby Squid, Braised in a Red Pepper Tomato Sauce (guest post)

I’m thrilled to have Ceri Jones of Natural Kitchen Adventures guest blogging here at Zenbelly this week. Her blog is full of gorgeous simple recipes that are mostly paleo, and always gluten-free… Like mine! I’m looking forward to working with her at some catering events later this month. Until then, I will occasionally email her and beg her to make me this: I love how even on the opposite side of the world; the climate, local produce and much of the cuisine in California is incredibly similar to that I know from many happy holidays on the Mediterranean.   Being from the UK...

Pad Thai

I was thrilled when Stacey of Paleo Parents asked me to participate in the PF Chang Paleo Recreation Round Up. Having only been to PF Chang’s once, I perused their online menu to see what I could paleo-ize. I’ve already created quite a few Asian inspired dishes here on the blog, and they’re some of my favorites. But Pad Thai was a code I had yet to crack. So when I saw it on the PF Chang’s menu, I decided it had to be the one for the recipe round-up. If I were to put together a list of the most misunderstood dishes (in all of my spare time), pad Thai would be on it....

Cioppino: the real San Francisco treat, if you ask me.

I am very excited. In about a month, Simon and I will be spending 3 days in Austin for PaleoFX. While there, I expect we’ll hear some inspiring talks from amazing speakers, see some old friends and meet some new ones. Oh and I’ll be doing a cooking demo, which I’m equally excited and horrified about. Trying to decide on a dish to demo is the exact type of situation that sends me directly into a mindset I like to call holycrapI’msooverwhelmed. How am I supposed to pick ONE dish to demo with all of the choices I have? Do I do something simple? Complex? Meat? Vegetable?...

Green Coconut Salmon

Posted by on Jan 27, 2012 in 21DSD, Dinner, Fish/Seafood, Paleo, Whole 30 | 5 comments

This salmon just might be the quickest dinner you make this week. The wonderful thing about it, other than being delicious, is that it doesn’t taste like you made it in under 30 minutes. This works with just about any kind of salmon, as long it’s wild. Coho has a lower fat content, which balances the richness of the coconut milk nicely. Serve with cauliflower rice, and chances are this dish will make it into the weekly rotation.  all ingredients organic whenever possible 1 can full fat coconut milk, shaken 1 bunch fresh cilantro 1 bunch fresh basil 1 jalepeno, seeds and membrane removed,...
