Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Mango Mint Salsa

Mahi-Mahi

I love mahi-mahi. It is by far my favourite fish to eat. If you don’t really like fish, I suggest giving mahi-mahi a try. I don’t find it very fishy; instead it’s more meaty and has a very mild flavour to it. The best way I love cooking mahi-mahi is grilled and that’s what I am going to show you today, topped with a mango mint salsa. This recipe is so simple making it a perfect weeknight meal, which is my kind of meal! It can be made in 30 minutes! It is also a perfect dish to make in the summer with the summer flavours of mango and mint in the salsa.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Kiwi Honey Sauce

Kiwi

When I was a kid I would get kiwis in my lunch to take to school. My mom would cut them in half for me, pack me a spoon and then when it was lunch time I would scoop out all of the kiwi goodness. I’ve always been familiar with the cut and scoop method of eating a kiwi, but when I was offered the opportunity to partner with Zespri Kiwifruit using the SunGold Kiwi, I was excited to incorporate this awesome little fruit into a couple different recipes! 

Unlike the green kiwi I am sure you are used to buying, the SunGold kiwi is more on the yellow side and tastes like a cross between a mango and strawberry. It also has a smoother, fuzz-free skin and is a great source of vitamin C, E, potassium and fibre. These little gems can be found in your supermarket between May and October, and I highly recommend trying them out!

The 10 Finger Burger

10 finger burger

What is a 10 finger burger you ask? It’s a burger that is so ridiculously big, you need all 10 fingers to hang onto it while eating. When I decided to stuff my burger with lots of tasty sautéed mushrooms and onions and then gooey cheese; and then add loads of toppings like avocado, fresh tomato slices, pickles and an aioli, this burger quickly became a 10 finger burger! There is something to be said about a burger that is so juicy that you need elbow napkins. These are napkins that catch the dripping that run down your hands and arms, to your elbows. This is that kind of burger.

Celebrating Canada Day

Canada Day

It’s Canada Day tomorrow and I am celebrating in British Columbia, camping in the bush on a lake; eating and drinking lots, canoeing and fishing and just enjoying my Canadian life. When I thought about writing this post for Canada Day I tried to think about what being Canadian means to me. 

As a food blogger, obviously this post will be heavy on the food and I am rounding up some of my very own blog posts, mostly Canadian recipes of course! 

But what does being Canadian to me?

June Craft Beer Review

June Craft Beer Review

In my May Craft Beer Review I mentioned at the end briefly that in June I was reviewing a 12 pack case of beer from Parallel 49 Brewing. They teamed up with 12 different breweries in British Columbia, and each made one unique beer, named after a rock song. This June Craft Beer review is a long one (12 different beers reviewed); so I don’t want to take any more of your time! If you’ve tried this specialty pack, let me know what your thoughts were on the brews! What was your favourite; which was the most unique; was there one you could have done without?

Orange Cardamom Chocolate No Churn Ice Cream

Orange Cardamom Chocolate No Churn Ice Cream

June is the month that kicks off summer and what better way to welcome the warm months ahead but with an orange cardamom chocolate no churn ice cream! If you are a food blogger or a person who follows a lot of food blogs, this won’t be your first no churn ice cream recipe that you’ve come across. It’s kind of all the rage right now and I just couldn’t help myself from jumping on the no churn ice cream bandwagon! I can understand now why this is trending with food bloggers alike; you literally can whip it up in a snap and wow, it tastes really good! 

This flavours of this recipe were actually inspired by a cookie I saw at a Farmer’s Market in Edmonton. I walked by a booth of homemade cookies, and saw the orange cardamom chocolate chip cookie and instantly the light bulb went off – wouldn’t that be amazing in ice cream!? I love cardamom already, and paired with orange and chocolate?! Amazing is too weak of a word to describe the flavours going on. Make it and you’ll know what I mean!
