1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 onion (8 oz.), peeled and chopped 
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced 
2 fresh jalapeño chiles, rinsed, stemmed, seeded, and minced 
8 ounces shelled cooked crab (or more!) (about two good sized crabs)
2 cups spinach chopped 
2 1/2 cups shredded jack cheese 
(Or 2 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese, or any combination of the two!) 
1/2 cup chopped black olives 
1/2 cup chopped cilantro 
1/2 cup mayonnaise 
1 tablespoon Worcestershire 
1 teaspoon chili powder 
1/2 teaspoon cayenne 
Salt and pepper 
1 tsp of cumin
2 cups green enchilada sauce 
10 white or whole-wheat flour tortillas (7 to 8 in.)
1. Pour oil into a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add onion, garlic, and jalapeños. Stir frequently until onion is limp, 5 to 8 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, mix crab, spinach, 2 cups cheese, olives, cilantro , mayonnaise, Worcestershire, chili powder, cayenne,cumin, and onion mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Spread about 1 cup sauce level in a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the crab mixture along the center of a tortilla. Roll tortilla around filling. Repeat to fill remaining tortillas, arranging filled tortillas in a single layer over the sauce. Top evenly with remaining 1 cup enchilada sauce and remaining cheese.
4. Bake in a 350° oven until cheese is browned and bubbling, about 30 minutes. Let cool in pan about 5 minutes, then serve from pan with a wide spatula
Your recipe here!  
1 lb crab meat
1 cup Panko
2 green onion 
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/3 cup mayo
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire 
1 egg
1 Teaspoon mustard
1/2 lemon (juiced)
Pepper to taste

*dash of favorite hot sauce(optional)

Mix all ingredients in bowl. Make into patties. Dust in flour. Fry in oil..

4 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets
1 1/4 lbs fresh green beans, ends trimmed or 1 lb (medium/thin) asparagus, tough ends trimmed (we like asparagus better!)
3 tsp olive oil, divided
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 Tbsp pesto,
4 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut four pieces of aluminum foil into 14-inch lengths. Boil green beans 3 minutes, then carefully drain (asparagus doesn't need to be boiled before baking).
Toss green beans (or asparagus) with 2 tsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste, divide into 4 servings and layer in center of each piece of foil. Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper. Layer salmon over green beans and then spread 1 Tbsp pesto over top. Drizzle 1 tsp lemon juice over each fillet. Toss tomatoes with remaining 1 tsp olive oil and season lightly with salt. Spread over each salmon fillet. Wrap sides of foil in and roll and crimp edge to seal, then wrap ends upward to seal (don't wrap too tightly you want the heat to be able to circulate well).
Place side by side on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven until salmon has cooked through, about 20 - 28 minutes (cook time will vary depending on thickness of salmon and desired degree of doneness, 20 worked fine for us).

Lemon Butter Baked Cod  
we used rock cod - very easy, very good, and pretty enough for company!  

2/3 cup porter
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup honey
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp chili powder
½ tsp pepper
4 (6 ounce) cod fillets

In a medium bowl stir together the porter, soy sauce, honey, garlic powder, ginger, chili powder and pepper. Add the cod, toss to coat.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour and up to 12 hours.
Preheat the broiler.
Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. (i didn't do this and it cleaned up really easy from my glass dish) Remove the cod from the marinade, add to the prepared sheet.
Add the marinade to a pot over high heat. Boil, stirring frequently until thickened, about 8 minutes.
Brush the fish with the glaze, place under the broiler. Broil for two minutes, re-brush with glaze, broil for two more minutes and repeat until fish is cooked through.(it took us about 15-18 minutes, but our fish was pretty thick)

Honey Porter Glazed Cod  
we used ling cod - pretty easy and the marinade/glaze was so good,I made a double recipe and used the extra on chicken thighs - and had the next day's dinner all planned!
