Baked Stuffed Clams

GLTUEN-FREE | DAIRY OPTIONAL | DETOX-FRIENDLY


Clams are one of the best bargains at the seafood market: inexpensive, widely available, low on the toxicity scale, and very versatile.

This elegant appetizer is an easy way to prepare them. There are a few steps involved - cooking the clams, making the stuffing, and then baking them - but none are difficult and the first two can be done in advance so you can pop them in the oven whenever you want.

Stuffed Calamari with Artichokes and Capers

GLUTEN-FREE | GRAIN-FREE | DAIRY OPTIONAL | DETOX-FRIENDLY


When I made this for dinner recently, my husband thought it was stuffed pasta. It did have a similar texture - soft and tender but sturdy enough to hold the filling. Other cooking methods can render squid tough and rubbery, but simmering it slowly in tomato sauce makes it turn out succulent every time.

This salmon chowder is detox-friendly and full of flavor. It contains some of the usual suspects, like onion, celery, thyme, and cream. But instead of starchy vegetables like potatoes and corn, I used veggies high in fiber like red bell pepper and mushrooms.

Wild Salmon Poached with Lemon and Herbs

GLUTEN-FREE | GRAIN-FREE | DAIRY-FREE | DETOX-FRIENDLY


Because fish is so delicate, it's well-suited to gentle cooking methods like poaching. Other cooking methods like grilling or roasting can make fish dry, but slowly simmering it in a flavorful liquid produces tender, juicy, succulent results every time.
