Seafood Dynamite

We live close to the biggest Japanese supermarket in our state.  They also have a restaurant that serves sushi.  They sell the freshest sushi grade sushi in town.  Since they sell seafood, one is sure that all the fish in they use their sushi have never been frozen.  Every Saturday we would go to their sushi… Continue reading Seafood Dynamite

Tuna Turnover

I have been craving for the Tuna Turnovers I had more than 20 years ago back home.  So when my best friend gave me a ton of canned tuna, what did I make?  The Tuna Turnover of my childhood ( not really because I was already working then, lol).  I am trying to recreate a… Continue reading Tuna Turnover

Baked Fish with Sour Cream

We are still trying to recover from the holiday eating.  I guess we try to (or purposely) forget our diets from the last few weeks of the year to the first week of the new year. An attempt to eat light was our objective in fixing this dish. Also due to a vehicle accident a couple… Continue reading Baked Fish with Sour Cream
