Tuna Cakes with Spicy Sriracha Aioli Sauce

I love crab cakes.  But I don’t love the cost.  Real crab can be very expensive so when I was in the mood for them the other day, I decided to make Tuna Cakes instead. These tuna cakes can be made as the recipe states, or if you like things a little hotter, add in […]

Beer Battered Fish

Fish ‘n’ Chips …. mmm mmmm mmmm I have to tell you, I didn’t have the highest hopes for this fish as I was making it …but I was beyond ecstatic after I made it.  Like OFF THE HOOK ecstatic. This beer batter makes the lightest, crispiest fish ever.  It is not heavy or oily […]
