Latin Fusion Sirloin Skewers
The summer season is here! Time to light up the flames under some mean, tasty food. Of course, no summer get-together is complete without some skewers thrown on to a grill. For this dish, I recommend using lean, top sirloin steak cuts for a healthier red meat option, mixed up with some colorful vegetables. The marinade fuses the Latin flavors of aji, cilantro and lime with the Asian flavors of the soy sauce. The low saturated fat content of canola oil allows the marinade to stay free-flowing in the refrigerator.
Potato & Chicken Sausage Frittata
Frittatas are a great meal option because they can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Using hearty ingredients, like potatoes and artichokes, add a boost of flavor and extra nutrition. Canola oil’s high heat tolerance allows me to go seamlessly from the stove top to the oven.
Roasted Trout with Avocado-Mango Salsa
This is a basic recipe for roasting fish – quick, easy, and simple. The salsa is made with canola oil because its neutral taste doesn’t overpower the natural flavors of the mango. You can also use the salsa as a dip or to add extra flair to other entrees. This dish tastes fantastic served with black beans or brown rice.
Chicken Parsley Burger
This chicken patty, seasoned with parsley, garlic and onions, is perfect for summer time. Cooking with canola oil allows the great flavors of the herbs to stay intact, while resisting the high heat of the sauté pan and the grill. Enjoy as a burger, on top of a salad or paired with rice and beans. Rainy outside? Not a problem. You can use a griddle or frying pan for easy and efficient indoor cooking.
Quinoa Stuffed Tri-Colored Bell Peppers
Wow your friends and family at your next potluck or gathering with this meatless main that also works as a great side dish.
