What I Loved About About The Recipe:

I can totally see why this dish is popular in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China. It’s very quick to prep and cook, and while it has very few ingredients, it tastes fabulous! It can also be made without the shrimp for a simple silky egg and tomato stir fry.

This dish is very popular in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China because it's very quick to prep and cook and tastes delicious! It can also be made without the shrimp for a simple silky egg and tomato stir fry. I love this recipe served over cauliflower rice sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Course: dinner
Keyword: easy dinner recipe, eggs benedict, Paleo, shrimp, stir fry, whole30
Ingredients
  • 12 medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (about a 1/2 pound)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt, plus a pinch
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 5-6 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch (a grain free substitute for corn starch)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
  • 2 medium, firm tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • toasted sesame oil, for serving
  • Optional: serve over cauliflower rice cooked in olive oil with sea salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Blanche shrimp in boiling water until they turn pink and begin to curl, scoop them out, drain and set aside. (this will happen very quickly!)

  2. Place eggs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, white pepper, and 2 tablespoons chopped scallions in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the arrowroot starch with a little less than 1 tablespoon water and add to the egg mixture and gently whisk. Add the shrimp to egg mixture.

  3. Heat a skillet on med/high heat. Add 1 tablespoon ghee and lower heat to medium. Add the shrimp and egg mixture. Gently stir fry until eggs are about 70 percent cooked, similar to soft, runny, scrambled eggs. Scoop the mixture out of the pan and set aside

  4. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon ghee to skillet, then add remaining 3-4 tablespoons scallions, the chopped tomatoes, and the tomato paste. Season with a small pinch of sea salt. Saute for 10 seconds, add eggs and shrimp back to pan and give a quick toss, about five seconds

  5. Serve over hot cauliflower rice, drizzle with toasted sesame oil, garnish with more scallions as desired.

Spicy Salmon with Plum Salsa #wildcaughtsalmon #plumsalsa #paleo #whole30

Let’s Talk Fish Y’all!

1. It’s best not to buy fish wrapped in plastic. You should be able to smell the fish you are buying. I always buy mine from a fishmonger I trust. If he is handling it, cutting it etc… he will know if it’s not fresh.

2. Always buy fish the day you plan on making it, that way if your meal gets pushed back a day or two you can still use it.

3. When selecting fish always point to the piece you want. In stores the freshest fish is placed in the front of the window, closest to you, and the fish from the day before is placed in the back, closest to the fishmonger. So when you are looking at the fish closest to you and ask for it, he pulls it from the back. It doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with that fish from the day before, it’s just not the freshest…and you want the freshest.

4. I always recommend eating wild caught salmon. It’s just plain better for you, the fish and the environment!

Spicy Salmon with Plum Salsa #wildcaughtsalmon #plumsalsa #paleo #whole30

The Plum Salsa:

Plums are stone fruits. ‘Stone fruits’ have a thick flesh that surrounds a large single pit…think cherries, plums, nectarines, peaches, apricots etc. Stone fruits are known to be high in cancer fighting properties such as phenols, vitamin B17 and vitamin C. So take advantage of their healthful properties while they are in season and eat them as is, or add them to oatmeal, cereal and salads, and in this case salsa! In this salsa I use red plums, yellow bell pepper, onion, lime juice, cilantro (or parsley) and jalapeño.

Spicy Salmon with Plum Salsa #wildcaughtsalmon #plumsalsa #paleo #whole30

Learn to Work with Hot Peppers:

This salsa gets it’s heat from jalapeño chili. If you aren’t sure how to safely work with hot peppers, well, do yourself a favor and learn by clicking here:

Spicy Salmon with Plum Salsa #wildcaughtsalmon #plumsalsa #paleo #whole30

The Spicy Salmon:

This wild caught salmon is brushed with olive oil and spices: cumin, paprika, coriander, garlic and cayenne pepper and then broiled to perfection in minutes! So easy, delicious, and loaded with protein and healthy fats! You can serve the salmon with the salsa alone, or on a bed of cauliflower rice, traditional rice or quinoa.

This meal is a collaboration between  Sun Basket and Rustic, the Sonoma County restaurant of film legend Francis Ford Coppola. One of our favorite recipes at Rustic is the lemon chicken inspired by Martin Scorsese’s mother, whom Francis visited with often. The chicken is drowned in lemon juice with fresh oregano, and cooked to a golden brown. 

Course: dinner
Keyword: chicken dinner, Paleo, roasted potatoes, whole30
Servings: 2 servings
Author: Sun Basket Meal Delivery
Ingredients
  • 3/4 pound new potatoes (white, rose or yukon gold work well)
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 pound baby broccoli (broccolini)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 ounces boneless chicken thigh pieces
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 medium shallots
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, grated or minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes (note: red pepper flakes lose potency over time, so if yours aren't fresh you may want to add a bit more)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine (white grape juice or water for my paleo/whole30 friends)
Instructions
Roast the potatoes and baby broccoli:
  1. Heat the oven to 425ºF.

    Scrub the potatoes; cut them into quarters.

    Trim the ends from the baby broccoli, strip the rosemary leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside.

    On one end of a sheet pan, toss the potatoes and rosemary with 1 tablespoon olive oil, bake for 20 minutes.

While Potatoes Roast Prep Remaining Ingredients:
  1. Peel and finely chop the shallots.

    Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.

    Strip the oregano leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves

    After potatoes have cooked for 20 minutes, remove pan from oven add the baby broccoli with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and toss. Season the broccoli and potatoes with salt and pepper. Place back in the oven and roast until tender and lightly browned, another 15 minutes or so.

While the vegetables roast, brown the chicken and lemon slices:
  1. Transfer chicken to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Cut thighs in half, season generously with salt and pepper.

    Thinly slice half the lemon; juice the other half and set aside for finishing the dish.

    In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through (3 to 5 minutes a side). Transfer to a plate.

    Add the lemon slices to the pan; cook until browned on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the chicken; do not clean the pan.

Cook remaining ingredients:
  1. In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil and warm over medium heat. Stir in the shallots, garlic, oregano, and as many chili flakes as you like. Season with salt and pepper and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

Finish the chicken:
  1. Add ¼ cup white wine (or water) to the shallot mixture; bring to a boil, loosening any browned bits. Add the broth, chicken, and lemon slices; bring to a boil. Cook at a vigorous simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. Remove vegetables from oven when they are browned and slightly crispy, plate. Add chicken and pour sauce over the top!

The Chicken:

Brining is the secret to success when it comes to boneless, skinless chicken breasts (don’t worry it’s easy!). These breasts were brined in sea salt salt and water for 30 minutes, then grilled to juicy perfection. No dry, tasteless chicken breasts here!

The Salad:

Peppery arugula with sweet, ripe, colorful strawberries, sprinkled with roasted pine nuts. So simple. So lovely.

The Dressing:

We give you two choices: we prefer an olive oil and white balsamic vinaigrette on this salad. It’s smooth, fresh and light, perfect for spring and summer. But you can also use a traditional balsamic.

The Recipe: Grilled Chicken with Strawberry and Arugula Salad!

What you need: Himalayan or kosher sea salt for brining and a quality white balsamic vinegar (<—our fave but we also like this one) If you prefer you can use a traditional balsamic. You will also need parchment paper and a rolling pin for pounding chicken.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote!

We celebrated my 57th birthday and Mother’s Day in France this May. What a spectacular vacation. Of course I had to come home and share a French inspired meal and I think you are going to love it! This is my French Toast with Raspberry Compote, a breakfast guaranteed to please!

The French are All About The Pastry For Breakfast

Croissants, French Bread, toast with preserves, you name the bread, the French will eat it for breakfast. Did we have this exact breakfast in France. Nope. Never. But it was inspired by the French love of pastry and preserves.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

Where We Went and What We Did:

This trip was all about visiting our daughter, son in law, and grand baby Minna, who live in the heart of Paris.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

And while we did have my 57th birthday dinner at Les Ombres near the Eiffel Tower, we spent the next several days in Barbizon.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

Barbizon is a small town about an hours drive from Paris. While there we shopped for food at open markets, perused the art shops, and took walks through the forest on the way to our in laws house for meals in the garden.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

If you go to Paris I highly recommend spending a couple of days in Barbizon or nearby Fountainebleau. The French certainly do appreciate beauty. At every turn there seems to be  something charming to catch your eye.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

And don’t even get me started on the parks in France. The most exquisite, well thought out and relaxing parks I have ever seen!

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

A Trip To Trouville:

After visiting Paris and Barbizon we packed up and headed to Trouville, a small, quiet beach community in Normandy. Quaint is an understatement and the beaches were pristine!

So, do you want to visit France yet? How could you not? Our last few days in France were spent at the Chateau De Chambord. Yes, this is real life.

French Toast with Raspberry Compote #frenchtoast #raspberrycompote #glutenfree #dairyfree

We toured, ate, relaxed, ate, boated, ate, slept, ate and ate. My pants are tight. I am not happy about it, but c’est la vie!

Now, Onto The French Toast!

I serve this vanilla laced French toast loaded with berries and drizzled with homemade raspberry compote. The compote only takes about 15 minutes to make and adds a beautiful splash of bright fuchsia! The compote can be served hot or cold and stores well in the fridge for five days. If you want to make the compote sugar free,  I recommend using Lankanto a natural 1:1 sweetening option! If you need a good gluten free bread I recommend New Grains Bakery. They ship to your door. I order and stock up the freezer.

The Recipe: French Toast with Raspberry Compote! (GF, DF and Sugar free options offered)

What you need: if making this recipe sugar free, in place of sugar I recommend Lankanto a natural 1:1 sweetening option made with monk fruit and Stevia powder! If you need a good pan, read this <—click! If you need a good gluten free bread I recommend New Grains Bakery. They ship to your door. I order and stock up the freezer.

A beautiful, elegant French Toast with Raspberry Compote. Gluten free, dairy free and sugar free options offered.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: French
Keyword: breakfast, dairy free, french toast, gluten free, sugar free
Servings: 4 servings
Ingredients
Raspberry Compote
  • 3 cups fresh raspberries, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar (or Lankanto a natural low carb sweetener linked above)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons water
French Toast
  • 8 pieces of your favorite bread (I use GF sour dough from New Grains Bakery linked above)
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 2/3 cups milk or almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla paste
  • 4 tablespoons butter, ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, for topping
  • powdered sugar, for garnish, optional
Instructions
Raspberry Compote
  1. Add all ingredients to a saucepan, mix well, bring to a boil

  2. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally

  3. Fruit should begin to break down and thicken. The longer you cook the thicker it will become so use your own judgement. When compote looks like a thin syrupy jam, turn off heat. If you wish to remove seeds (completely optional), pour through a screen colander and use a spatula to push liquids through screen, discard seeds. Use compote warm or cold. Can be stored covered in the fridge for 4-5 days or frozen for a month.

French Toast
  1. Whisk eggs, add milk and vanilla, whisk more

  2. Place pan or skillet on medium heat. When pan is hot, melt butter, ghee or coconut oil. Make sure pan is evenly covered with oil

  3. Add bread to pan and cook until golden brown on each side

  4. Top with berries and compote, garnish with powdered sugar if desired
