Parsley and Lemon Baked Fish Fillets

Simple, delicious and perfect weeknight meal. I absolutely love meals like this.

Not only that it doesn’t take too long to make it, but you have a full meal on the table in less than 45 minutes.

Additionally, you can also prepare ahead and just put it together. I served this one with roasted potatoes, quinoa, and brown rice.

As well as a salad on the side, and I must tell you that it was one delicious meal.

Parsley and Lemon Baked Fish Fillets

You can totally do this with salmon or any other fish. Actually, I make this often with salmon.

A couple of years ago, my youngest one started calling salmon a pink fish, and often he’d say “how about we get some pink fish for lunch”.

He was so cute when he suggested what we should eat.

So, now it is stuck with us… pink fish!
Anyhow, I hope you like this recipe… if you have any suggestions what I should make, do not hesitate to leave a comment.

Ingredients

  • 6 Fish fillets or more (I used Flounder)

  1. MIX together in a jar: lemon juice, Olive oil, minced garlic, onion powder, black pepper and sea salt to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon, you can always add more salt later), dried parsley and chopped fresh parsley (Italian flat leaf). Shake a jar well.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350F, and line the baking pan with parchment paper (easier cleanup and fish won’t stick).
  3. Pour everything from the jar over fish, you may use frozen fish, but make sure it’s completely defrosted. Add a bit of butter on the top. and cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil just to prevent from burning.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven.
  5. Serve immediately with a drizzle of leftover oil/sauce and a few chopped scallions.

Notes

I used 6 fish fillets, and you could use any fish. I use salmon often.

Easy Homemade Beef Ragu

Easy Homemade Beef Ragu is one of my absolute favorite sauces. Not only does it taste absolutely delectable, warm, and comforting but it is super easy to make, as most of my recipes are.

There is something special about a meal when it is cooking ever so slowly on your stovetop on a cold Saturday mid-morning. Honestly, I love making this ragu all-year-round, but in particular, the rather frosty days of the year are my favorite times to cook and indulge in this exquisite recipe. 

Easy Homemade Beef Ragu

As you all may know I live in Nashville, Tennesee, so these wintery days are really limited. On another related note, this year definitely started shaky for me and my family, so we surprised our bellies with daily comforting meals that brought peace and harmony to our bodies.

After losing my father-in-law due to this nasty virus, comfort meals were what we needed the most.

This meal is one of those that brings such fond memories to my heart. It has been a hot minute since I’ve made this one for my family. I had this recipe on my blog a while ago, but as some of you know, after my blog transfer, I lost many of the recipes I had posted about.

beef recipes

Luckily, I still have them in my archive, so I am recreating them, one by one, all over again, adding in new images and methods of making them.

This is my eleventh year of blogging so I have learned so much more throughout the years from cooking methods to writing styles and a whole new and improved business and management process.

Anyhow, let’s get back to the recipe. I am pretty ecstatic for you to try it, sn i definitely think you should. You can totally make it in a slow cooker, but I like and prefer my ceramic cookware and bakeware. I adore moist, slow-cooked meals when it is simmering on the stove, so that is how I approach making most of my slow-cooked meals usually.

Easy Homemade Beef Ragu

I have nothing against slow cookers, I own one, and use it from time to time. However, if you ask me how to make this, I’d highly recommend doing it this way in the earthware dishes.

Easy recipe for delicious Homemade Beef Ragu

Ingredients

  • 2 lb beef for stew (chuck), chunks
  • Generous pinch of salt, season to taste later
  • Generous pinch of Black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 tablespoon herb de Provence
  • 15 oz tomato sauce, you may use any on your hand-crushed, chopped, or pureed
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 cups beef broth/stock
  • 2 cups water, more if needed
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes

Thickening agent:

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch or flour, for low carb option xanthan gum or guar gum
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 4-5 tablespoons of water
  • Finish it with 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter.

Instructions

  1. Pat down a generous pinch of salt and pepper beef. Try to mix it, so it is coated well with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil over medium temperature in a heavy-based pot, preferably with the fitted lid. Add beef and sear each piece until browned on all sides, then remove onto a platter.
  3. Drizzle a bit more oil and add onion, celery, garlic, carrots. Stir and cook for 4-5 minutes at medium temp.
    Return the beef to the pot by pouring it over with beef juices over sauteed veggies and add herb de Provence. Keep stirring to coat everything.
  4. Add liquid, beef broth, water, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Add bay leaves and bouillon cubes. Allow it to boil, then turn down the temp.
  5. Cover the pot and let it cook at the low temperature (simmer) for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until beef is tender enough to shred. Taste your food and see if it needs more seasoning to please your taste buds.
  6. You do not have to add a thickening agent but if you want a nice glossy sauce: mix the thickening agent of your choice with tomato paste and water. Mix until smooth and well combined.
  7. Pour slowly over a bubbling pot of sauce.
  8. Stir to combine, and in a few seconds, it will start to get thicker. If you made a mistake added too much of it and the sauce is too thick, add a bit of liquid, mix, and it will be just fine.
  9. Always taste to see if you need more salt or pepper. At the very end, add two tablespoons of unsalted butter because the sauce is richer and adds a velvety smooth taste.


Serve it over mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.

Notes

You may use a beef chuck in one piece for this although it may cook a bit longer. I would slice it in half or quarter it if you do not want to use chunks.

You may find different beef bouillon cubes so use it only you wish to use it. You can always sub it with more salt and pepper.

I do not use vine in my cooking. I never have so if you like to do that add a splash of the vine to this sauce. Also, 1 cup of Guinness strut or simular is good in this sauce.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Minerva Dairy. All opinions are entirely my own.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs in a buttery sauce are so addictive, delicious, and easy to make.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

I partnered with Minerva Dairy to show you how I create this recipe using their delicious butter.

6 generations of Butter Makers, Minerva Dairy is America’s oldest family-owned creamery. Also, this delightful butter is 85% butterfat, high-quality made from pasture-raised cow milk.

I would not only recommend this butter for sautéing, or to make your sauce richer, but for baking and just spreading on your morning toast as well. It is most definitely lusciously delicious! I must admit the Minerva Dairy Butter is one of the best.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Nonetheless, these spicy meatballs are fantastic when you serve them as an appetizer with ranch or blue cheese dressing, and some crunchy vegetables. Also, you could make the best meatball sandwich. We tried it and fell in love with each bite. Also, if you cannot find ground chicken you can substitute with ground turkey.

I tried it and it was just as good!

Ingredients

  • 1-pound ground chicken (or ground turkey)
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ tablespoon dried parsley
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs

    and seasonings to a large bowl then stir with a fork to combine.
  3. Add ground chicken then mix until combined, then drizzle a
    bit of oil – do not over-mix or meatballs will be tough. Divide chicken mixture
    into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls, which gives you 16 meatballs.
  4. Place meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a
    baking sheet, then bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

    buffalo sauce and stir to combine.
  6. Add cooked meatballs to the skillet then turn them around to
    coat in sauce.
  7. Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm. The
    the sauce will get thicker.
  8. Serves everything on the charcuterie board, a large plate,
    or a platter.

Notes

  • Oil your hands with a bit of oil so the meatballs roll
    easier.

    time may vary.
