Easy Peasy Sheetpan Haddock

Our haddock is sustainably caught in Iceland by our partners at Icemar. Try it out in this recipe that's perfect for a weeknight: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss 2 containers cherry tomatoes, 4 tbsp olive oil, 6 sprigs thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spread out on a foil-lined sheet pan. In that same bowl, coat 4 haddock fillets with 2 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper and place on the sheetpan. Combine 1/2 c grated Parmesan, 1/2 cup panko, and 2 tbsp olive oil in same bowl, then sprinkle evenly over tops of fish on pan (any extra can go on the tomatoes). Roast 12 mins; if crumbs need more browning, finish under broiler and serve immediately.

A Versatile Weeknight Stir-Fry

Our stir-fry strips are a weeknight dinner favorite: simply pair them with veggies and a sauce and you're good to go! When we're in need of some stir-fry inspiration, we turn to this easy version featuring pantry staples like soy sauce, garlic, and sesame: Heat a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 tbsp of vegetable oil to the pan, then add 1 lb of meat strips/stir-fry, and cook until browned and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside in a bowl. In the same pan, add a little more oil. Add your favorite sliced vegetables and a pinch of chili flakes. Cook, tossing, until the vegetables are lightly browned, at least 1-2 minutes. In the meantime, mix 2 tbsp mirin, 2 tsp sugar, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil, and 2 cloves minced garlic in a bowl. Toss in meat back in the pan, and pour the sauce over it. Cook everything together, letting the flavors meld and the sauce reduce for about 2 minutes, and serve.

How To: Seafood Paella

Paella is a show-stopping dish that is surprisingly simple to master. Give it a try using this basic method that can easily be scaled up for a paella party. The basic ratios to set yourself up for success is 1 cup of paella rice, 2 cups of stock and 2/3 cups of tomato puree or sofrito. Heat a bit of olive oil over medium heat in a 14''-16'' paella, steel, or cast-iron pan. If using seafood, sauté in pan until about half cooked; set aside. If using vegetables, par-cook and set aside. Add 2 cloves minced garlic to the pan along with more olive oil, if needed. Sauté 1 minute, then stir in 1/4 tsp crushed saffron and 1 tsp smoked paprika. Add 1 c paella rice and stir until translucent, about 1 minute. Add 2/3 c tomato puree or sofrito and sauté for 1 minute, then pour in 2 c warm stock and stir briefly, spreading out rice over the bottom of the pan (you can use shrimp shells, herbs, clam juice, and/or squid ink to make a stock; alternatively, use a pre-made stock). Season with salt. Simmer rice 5 minutes, then transfer to an oven at 300 F. Bake until rice reaches desired texture, 12-15 minutes. 5 minutes before done, spread your seafood or vegetables over the rice in pan and finish baking. When cooking on a grill, we follow the same steps but increase our stock by ¼ cup.

In another bowl, toss together 1 cubed mango, 1/2 a diced bell pepper, 1/4 of a small diced red onion, 1/2 a seeded and minced jalapeño, juice and zest from 1/2 a lime, and a pinch of salt; set aside.

Serve with sliced avocado, a sprinkle of cilantro, and lime wedges for squeezing over.

Recipe Inspo: Kimchi Noodle Bowls

One of the simplest ways to use kimchi is to toss it with cooked veggies and noodles for a spicy, slurpable feast. Here's how we do it: Cook rice or ramen noodles slightly less than the package instructions. In a large pan, cook some sliced onion or shallot, minced garlic, sliced shiitake mushrooms, and any other chopped veggies you'd like until lightly browned. Stir in 1-2 tablespoons gochujang (use more or less to taste). Stir in a few tablespoons of bone broth to coat everything in a loose sauce. Stir in the cooked noodles, some roughly-chopped kimchi and its juice, and sliced scallions. Cook, tossing, for a minute or two, or until noodles are fully cooked, and serve.

Make Burgers With More Veggies & Less Meat

Delight your taste buds while being kinder to the planet by making burgers with Misfit Foods meat and veggie blends. This recipe features their gochujang beef and beets, which has delicious, gently spicy Korean flavors: Shape 2 packages Misfit Food's Beet Gochujang Ground Beef into 4 patties. With your fingers, make a big indent in the middle of each patty. Heat your grill for direct heat, oil the grates, and add patties. Cook until gently charred, about 4 minutes per side. If desired, add a slice of cheese while cooking on second side. Let rest for about 15 minutes so juices can settle. Add desired toppings: onions, tomatoes, avocado, lettuce, bacon, or sautéed mushrooms are all great - we love finishing it off with a mixture of 2 tbsp miso, 1 c mayo, and sliced scallion greens.

How To: Creamy Chicken & Chickpea Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing

This recipe is perfect for a easy-breezy lunch or dinner. Best of all, it uses ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen - you can even use leftover roast chicken, if you like. Preheat oven to 400 F. Drain and rinse 1 can chickpeas. Toss chickpeas in olive oil and spread evenly on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until lightly crisp and browned, about 10 minutes, tossing halfway through. Meanwhile, place in a food processor 1 avocado, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 c cilantro leaves, 1/4 c Greek yogurt, 2 tbsp fresh lime juice, 3 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. Blend until creamy. Add 1/2 cup water and blend again until smooth. If very thick, add more water. In a large bowl, toss chickpeas, a handful or two of diced chicken, and a few handfuls of lettuce. Dress with 1/4-1/2 c yogurt dressing, or to taste.

Squeeze over juice from one lime, then toss everything to coat all over. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or 8-9 hours on low. When tender, shred the meat with a fork.
