Sun dried tomato pasta with shrimp, capers, basil, and toasted pine nuts

This sundried tomato pasta recipe has a very light sauce made of olive oil and white wine but is packed with flavors. The combination of the sun dried tomatoes, capers, shallots, garlic, fresh basil and pine nuts add a TON of textures and flavors to the pasta dish so that you don’t need to load it up with a heavy sauce. We added shrimp to this recipe but we’re sure it would be tasty with chicken or as a vegetable pasta recipe too.

Asparagus and English Pea Pasta with Pancetta & Shrimp

Asparagus and English Pea Pasta with Pancetta & Shrimp

We decided to create a new pasta recipe that was something different than the same ‘ol spaghetti and meatballs. We started with some springtime greens. Asparagus is at peak season as well as peas. Cooking seasonally helps you to bring in additional flavor in a healthy way. These two veggies added a brightness to this dish to contract against the salty pancetta. You can never go wrong with a touch of bacon in ANY recipe, right?!?

Hot honey and Sriracha Salmon Recipe

We heard that Hot Honey is a new culinary trend. After the Jacobsen’s Salt Company sent us a sample to try, it took us a while to figure out how we wanted to incorporate it into a recipe. Around the same time, we discovered a new fish company, The Seaforth Fish Company, who ships the freshest wild-caught salmon and halibut straight from the waters of Alaska. You can feel good about this sustainable fish company and their products are so fresh, healthy, and delicious!
