Recipe roundup

recipe roundupBeef Satay With Peanut Sauce from South Beach Diet Online. Inexpensive top round is sliced thin and marinated in a little lime juice and a whole lotta garlic and ginger before being threaded onto skewers and grilled. The peanut sauce is pretty darn good, too, if a little runny. If I hadn’t been following the South Beach Diet when I tried this I would have used the peanut sauce from Cooking Light’sĀ Chicken and Noodles with Peanut Sauce.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust from The Lucky Penny. Not soggy, not crumbly, not cauliflowery. Also not very bready, but it is tasty and it can pick it up and eat it with your hands – if you don’t overload your toppings like Matt. I just put a dollop of sauce, a sprinkling of herbs, and a handful of shredded Italian blend cheese on my half. My pizza cravings were satisfied.

Lemony Roasted Salmon with White Wine Couscous from Cooking Light. This was surprisingly inexpensive, given its fancy-sounding name (and flavor), but I used frozen salmon fillets and bulk-bin couscous. I halved the recipe but forgot to halve the yogurt, chive, lemon, and olive soil sauce, and just as well because it really made the dish. Goes together quickly and easily and tastes pretty impressive.
