Skillet Cod in Scallion Lemon Butter Sauce

Skillet Cod in Scallion Lemon Butter Sauce

I love to cook fish in a cast iron skillet. The filets get a nice sear, cook very quickly, and don’t stick. Deglazing the pan with an easy lemon butter sauce makes a quick and delicious meal.

I used fresh lemon thyme from my garden instead of parsley when I made it this time. If I didn’t have fresh thyme, I would have just used the parsley.

Corned Beef Reuben Casserole with Creamy Russian Dressing

Corned Beef Reuben Casserole

Want to try something a little different for St. Patrick’s Day this year? This low carb casserole has all of the flavors of a classic Reuben sandwich, in a hot delicious main dish casserole.

Layers of cooked cabbage, corned beef, sliced dill pickles, and sauerkraut are covered in melted Swiss cheese, then topped with a creamy Russian dressing. (The pickles are optional, but I love the extra tangy-ness and crunch.)

Bake in a large casserole dish or 9×13” pan for a delicious low carb meal.

Serve hot and drizzle with homemade creamy Russian dressing to serve. I like to kick up the spiciness of the dressing by adding extra Sriracha.

I cook my corned beef in an Instant Pot (70 minutes on high pressure), until tender enough to shred. You can also use leftover cooked corned beef and reduced amounts of the other ingredients to make a smaller sized casserole.

The weather here is still unusually warm, which has extended our outdoor grilling season. These Middle Eastern spiced kabobs (affectionately called “meat logs” by my children) are a flavorful departure from burgers, hot dogs, and grilled chicken. I like to serve them with tzatziki, hummus, and warm pita bread.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble to make kebabs (or it is winter and you don’t want to dig your grill out of a snowbank), this meat mixture is also great shaped as meatballs and baked, or browned in a skillet.
