Homemade Lobster Tortellini Recipe with Brown Butter

Dude! Whoa! Holy Smokes!!  This Homemade Lobster Tortellini Recipe with Brown Butter is R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S.  I know there is a lot going on in this video and it seems like it may be more difficult than it actually is, but I promise stick with me because this is way easier than you may have though, and honestly it only took 2 hours total to make.  Yes, if you aren’t used to cooking than 2 hours can seem a little long, but when you are making some pretty cool elegant meals then that’s really not that bad at all.  When I do…

Zucchini Noodles with Pesto and Shrimp Scampi Recipe

One of our favorite things to make the past few years has been zucchini noodles.  If you’re often on Pinterest or Instagram then you’ve certainly seen the craze of zucchini, squash or even carrot or sweet potato noodles that have been filling your newsfeed.  Zucchini noodles are a fantastic alternative if you’re trying to avoid all the crabs or if you’re gluten free, plus you get all the benefits of eating vegetables.  The only thing you really need to do to make the effect is purchase a spiralizer.  It’s funny that zucchini noodles have become a think because I remember…

Spicy Grilled Shrimp Tacos Recipe with Papaya and Mango Salsa

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Bush Brothers & Company . The opinions and text are all mine. I’m doing everything I can to soak in every last second of this summer, which means I’m doing as many meals as I can outside on the grill. Don’t get me wrong I grill all year round, but it’s much more fun to do in shorts and a t-shirt instead of a winter coat and boots. On average I grill about 50% of the meals I create out on the grill throughout the summer, and this Spicy…

Homemade Salmon Cakes Recipe with Tartar Sauce

We just got back from Portland, Oregon and it is currently salmon season out there.  Since salmon is as abundant in Portland as Italian beef is here in Chicago, I made sure to overindulge in the local seasonal fare!  The fresh local caught salmon was literally 4 inches thick, no joke, and while I didn’t bring any home with me, it inspired me to make this Homemade Salmon Cakes Recipe with Tartar Sauce!  My wife who is not a salmon fan loved the salmon we had in Portland, so I figured I would try it again at home!   Fresh…

Pan Seared Scallops with White Wine and Herb Butter Sauce

I don’t cook with scallops too often, but every time I do I am amazed at just how good they are and why I need to eat them more often.  They are honestly like the eating a sea steak haha.  They are so meaty and so flavorful, and respond so well when seared golden brown and coated in herbs and butter.  It’s as if the scallop was only meant to be drenched in white wine, herbs and butter.  Sure it’s a little more on the classic side, but once you take your first bite you’ll know exactly why it is…

Pan Seared Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter Sauce

I can’t even tell you how happy I am to be doing this Soigne [swan-yay] videos again.  I loved doing them back a few years ago but dang did I get busy in between then, and honestly just didn’t have the time.  Well, things have chilled out a bit and I’ve re-introduced the series with my bone-in ribeye steak recipe with whisky cream sauce a few weeks ago and am following up with this Pan Seared Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter Sauce.  I know that these recipes may sound a bit on the elegant side but honestly they are some…

How to make a Homemade Smoked Salmon Platter Recipe

I can’t tell you how many time people I don’t know, and do know, throw out the accusation that I know about some specific food, or ethnic dish, or cooking technique because I’m a chef and went to culinary school.  I understand why they would think that but to clarify, there isn’t a single chef in the world that knows everything about the culinary world.  It’s impossible!  I know absolutely nothing about Somali cuisine, or food from Kazakhstan, or foods and ingredients from Greenland.  Literally I know what I know and I try to learn from there.  One of my…
