52 New Recipes | Grilled Mahi Mahi + Moroccan Chicken Salad

I missed a few weeks of 52 New Recipes, so I’m making up for it!

(I tried two new ones last week as well.)

(Please picture me flexing my trying-new-recipes muscle.)

First up, I tried a grilled mahi-mahi recipe, which was a mash-up of a Cook’s Illustrated recipe and a recipe I found online.

I’m pleased to say that I finally did NOT overcook the mahi-mahi (I used my instant-read thermometer!), and the marinade did a perfect job of keeping it from sticking to the grill.

Sweet success.

Because I’m trying to get out of my dinnertime I-don’t-want-to-cook funk, I also tried a Moroccan chicken salad from my ATK make-ahead cookbook.

This was pretty tasty, and a little different than the usual, with garam masala in the dressing.

You cook the chicken ahead of time and then let it sit in the dressing (with dried apricots and shallots) until dinnertime, at which point you dress the greens and add the chicken.

So, that means you get pretty much all of the work done ahead of time, which is fabulous.


What new recipe did you try in the last week? I hope you found a keeper!

I made Chicken Penne Pasta with Pesto. It was a big hit. I had enough pesto left to do a reprise, next time I'll do it with shrimp.

Kristen, I was pleasantly surprised to see you mention "garam masala" in the ingredients this week. I also saw Naan appearing couple of times in your weekly menu.

I have been using your bread,cheddar twists and cinnamon rolls recipe for a long time now. It makes me happy to see Indian dishes appearing here ! :) I am from India and would love to share simple, vegetarian Indian recipes with you if you are interested. I thought since Indian meals involve pretty inexpensive ingredients, you would find them frugal and hence relevant for your blog.

Goodmorning Kristen, This week I tried a slow cooker "Pork and Beans with Chorizo" it was just delicious. I also made a, new to me, potato salad that had Dill and sour cream as well as mayonnaise, it was super creamy and you know potato and Dill are best friends, so it was a winner. I served this potato salad with pan fried Pearl Perch, my all time fav fish that lovely hubby catches, cleans and cooks. Have a lovely day. Fi

I don't see where you rated the recipes, to say if you and your family members liked them, and if you'll make the recipes again.

Kuddos on trying two new recipes in one week.

I think I'll do both of these again! Not too hard, pretty healthy, and tasty.

Insta-read thermometers are the best!
