Menu ideas and recipes for golden tilefish, chipotle, greens, oysters, ground pork, and asparagus

Chipotle golden tilefish

I love this chipotle salmon recipe but we get so much local fish from our seafood store that I hardly ever buy salmon, so I made it with golden tilefish instead. On the side, a mix of greens (chard, pac choi, radish, and others) sautéed with red onion, red bell pepper, and poblano pepper. I love having sweet potato and chipotle on the same plate, so I nuked a huge sweet potato and finished it in the toaster oven.

Oysters - Menu ideas and recipes for golden tilefish, chipotle, greens, oysters, ground pork, and asparagus

Pirate Pearls, not Masonboros, from a while back

Oysters, again

I got a great deal on Masonboro oysters so we had steamed oysters (again) with a dipping sauce of brown butter, lemon juice, and hot sauce. On the side, frozen onion rings, just because.

Spicy pork and veggies

I doubled this recipe for spicy pork with asparagus and chile, and added broccoli and carrots to the veggie mix. On the side, brown rice with diced onion, broccoli stem, carrot, and garlic. Now I’m enjoying all the leftovers for lunch.

I hope you have time (and cooperating weather) to go outside and enjoy the blooming beauty of spring!
