THE REDEMPTION OF THE EGG!

Yes, after 40 years of vilifying eggs, the government agencies that like to change their minds every few years about natural foods but freely tell you artificial sweeteners, flavorings and colorings are safe (sigh) have finally decided to announce that cholesterol is no longer ‘a nutrient of concern’. And with that announcement they encouraged people to eat eggs (and butter). It only took them forty years to catch up with what real food enthusiasts already knew: eggs are good for you. Eggs are high in protein, healthy fats and let’s face it, they look pretty darn good on everything. (Find the recipe for the flatbread below here)

Tips: Let’s Start with The Pan

To achieve the perfect fried egg you need a good quality non-stick pan. Now that doesn’t mean a pan coated with toxic chemicals. That means a pan that is naturally non stick or highly seasoned making it non stick: we’re looking at you cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic! To learn more about safe cookware, click.

The Importance of Heat and Oil:

Even with a non stick pan there are certain rules to egg frying that really make a difference.
1. Start with a hot pan. When the pan and oil are really hot the egg immediately contracts away from the pan which prevents sticking, if you put eggs in a lukewarm pan they stick. #truth.

2. Use olive oil, butter, or a combo of the two when frying, and be sure to use enough to generously coat the bottom of the pan. Using plenty of olive oil or butter not only prevents sticking but also adds flavor. And gives you that crispy edge you see in the photos in this post. Perfection!

Getting the Yolk Just Right:

Like beauty, the ‘perfect yolk’ is in the eye of the beholder. I love mine runny, my husband likes his almost firm. I will give you tips for achieving each, and everything in between in the recipe below.

How to fry eggs to achieve the perfect 'doneness' with no sticking!

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: fried egg, how to, how to fry an egg
Ingredients
  • desired amount of fresh, free range eggs
  • extra virgin olive oil, grass fed butter, or both
  • Sea salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. NOTE: The size pan and the amount of oil/butter you use will depend on how many eggs you are frying. So choose your pan accordingly.

  2. Heat a non stick pan on med/high heat until hot (give it at least 90 seconds). Add oil, butter or a combination of the two to the pan and allow time for them to get hot without smoking. Pan should be generously coated.

  3. Gently add eggs to pan and turn heat down to low immediately. The pan should be hot enough that you hear a "pssssshhhhh" sound when eggs hit the pan, this helps with sticking and gives you that crispy edge.

  4. Cook on low for three to five minutes until whites are set and yolk is done to preference. I love to leave my yolk runny, so I only cook one side. My husband likes his more well done, so he turns his egg once the whites are set and cooks until yolk is almost firm. You can do either, or something in between, totally up to you!

  5. Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve and enjoy!

Lime Chili Chicken Skewers #chickenskewers #chickenkabobs #limechili #whole30 #paleo

The Marinade:

Marinated in olive oil, lime juice and various spices these skewers are moist and flavorful. You can leave the meat marinating for as little as an hour or as long as 24, which means you can prep them a day ahead or the morning of, head to work and they are ready to pop on the grill when you get home! Just remember, when it comes to marinating, generally longer is better.

Lime Chili Chicken Skewers #chickenskewers #chickenkabobs #limechili #whole30 #paleo

Grilling:

The key to successful grilling is a little prep and some high heat. Make sure the grill is clean and sprayed with an organic grill spray before turning it on. Then turn the grill to high heat and turn down if needed as the chicken cooks. When meat comes in contact with a hot grill, it contracts, which is a good thing because that means less sticking.

Course: dinner
Cuisine: BBQ
Keyword: bbq chicken, kabobs, kebabs, lime chili chicken skewers
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
Marinade:
  • Remember when it comes to marinating, longer is better. This chicken can be marinated 1-24 hours. I usually prep it a day ahead, or the morning I plan to serve it.
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (1/4 tsp=mild, 1/2 tsp=med, use as much as you want for hot!)
Chicken:
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, or a combination of the two, cut into 1 1/2" chunks (I am going to push for dark meat here. It's so much more moist than breasts...trust me:)
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Optional Garnishes:
  • chopped cilantro
  • your choice of small green or red hot chili pepper sliced, or red pepper flakes
  • lime wedges for squeezing over chicken
Instructions
For Marinade:
  1. Whisk all ingredients together and set aside

For Chicken Skewers:
  1. Cut chicken into cubes and place in a covered container. Pour marinade over chicken and refrigerate for 1-24 hours (the longer the better) Turn meat halfway through marinating time to make sure all chicken is coated in marinade.

  2. Remove chicken from marinade and place on four skewers, sprinkle generously with sea salt and pepper to taste

  3. Spray clean grill with organic non stick spray and preheat grill to 425 degrees

  4. When grill is hot, add skewers. Close lid and cook for 10-12 minutes or until juices run clear, turning halfway through cooking time (if your chicken is cut into bigger chunks, allow more time)

  5. Remove, and garnish with cilantro and peppers if desired

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

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:

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.

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!
