The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Soy Glazed Cod Baked in Parchment Paper

As usual, I picked up some more fresh seafood when I was at the shore this weekend. This time it was cod and I decided to bake it in parchment paper.  This is a great method you can use with most types of fish and there are several reasons why I recommend going this route. It's healthy, it's flexible (you can throw in a variety of vegetables or seasonings), it's foolproof, very easy clean up - just crumple up the paper and toss it out when you're done, and because it steams in it's own juices (along with the other ingredients you throw in) it leaves you with a moist and flavorful fish. It works for a an easy weeknight meal or it's impressive enough for company. Just cut open the parchment at the table and serve. See below for the recipe.

2 fillets of Cod
1-2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bunch of green onions, sliced into 1 inch pieces
2 pieces of parchment paper, cut into 12" to 16", depending on size of fillets

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine soy sauce, sriracha, vegetable oil, garlic, cilantro, and ginger. Place fish fillets in middle of their own parchment sheets, season each with salt, and then brush soy sauce mixture generously over fish. Throw sliced green onions into packet. Fold over parchment paper and roll sides to seal parchment packet.

Place side by side on a baking sheet and cook for about 15 minutes, or until fish is opaque. If you have a thicker fillet, you may have to cook a little longer. Cut open packet and serve in parchment paper.
