paleo gluten free popcorn shrimp recipe
Jeremy always talks about his childhood spent eating and drinking non-Paleo classics like chocolate milk, bologna sandwiches, cherry coke, and popcorn shrimp (things I thankfully missed out on growing up in England). But, I thought I’d bring back some of his childhood foods by recreating Paleo versions of them. The Paleo popcorn shrimp recipe turned out amazingly well (in fact, Jeremy thought it was probably better than what he remembered!).

simple paleo coconut seafood soup recipe

I’m a big fan of soups, especially during the winter months. And the best thing about soups is that they’re really really easy to make and can be an entire meal!

This easy seafood soup is so nutritious and filling – it’s packed with vegetables, coconut milk, and your choice of seafood.

paleo coconut lemongrass shrimp soup (tom kha gai thai soup)
I was really skeptical about this soup when I first had it at a Thai restaurant in Los Angeles 10 years ago. It was 3am in the morning, the restaurant was packed, and the menu was completely foreign to me.

Just the first taste told me that I had definitely picked a winner. It was amazing – so flavorful, so creamy, and omg so spicy!

I finished the entire bowl despite the fact that it was way too spicy for me. It was just that good!

That soup I ordered was Tom Kha Gai, which translates to “Chicken Galangal Soup.”

Simple Paleo Crumbled Fish Sauté

paleo fish saute
One of the things I love about fish (apart from its deliciousness) is just how fast it cooks!

And, as an extra bonus, fish defrosts quickly if you buy it frozen.

All of this adds up to a super fast meal!

Paleo Fish Bake

paleo fish bake
My mum has cooked my entire life. She has also worked my entire life and was often at work late (she has a PhD in material science has worked for Oxford University as well as IBM in the past).

Despite her exhausting job, every night she would come home and cook an entire meal from scratch for me and my dad (he hates eating leftovers and loves to eat a ton of food). I think this made her amazingly good at cooking quick meals with whatever we had in the fridge.

This fish bake is a dish she’s been making recently – I love it because it’s an entire meal in one large casserole dish. You can double or triple the recipe easily depending on how many people you want to feed. And it takes just a few minutes to chop everything up – after that, you can put your feet up and relax.

Coconut Tuna Fish Cakes

Paleo Coconut Tuna Fish Cakes

“Only in New York City would you walk past a man on a unicycle without turning your head.”

New York has been my “home” for the past five and a half years. If you’ve never visited, then let me tell you that there are all sorts of things you will see in this city that just doesn’t happen elsewhere. From semi-naked guitarists in Times Square to Gossip Girls filming on Columbia campus to rats running through subway.

Those were things I used to find exciting slash seriously gross about NYC, but I’ve now realized that I don’t even turn my head to look. I’ve finally become a New Yorker!

I was actually on my way to pick up groceries to make these coconut tuna fish cakes when I walked by a unicyclist meandering down a residential street. Even though I was looking straight ahead at him, it never registered in my head that this was something odd. After all, what’s odd about a unicyclist when two men will fight in daylight over a parking spot (note all the pedestrians walking by in the background not seeing a thing).

I guess this was a long way to say that it’s time I left New York. There are many reasons why I’ve decided to leave in a few months, and this was just one of them. But regardless of where I am, the recipes shall continue!

Paleo Fish Tacos
Cinco de Mayo was not something I had ever celebrated growing up…in fact, Mexican food was not something I had even come into contact with until I moved to California after college in England! Burritos and tacos were suddenly exciting oddities, and don’t get me started on mole sauce!

I grew to love Mexican food, especially fish tacos (I used to get them from Rubio’s all the time when I lived at the Paseo Colorado in Pasadena, CA). Sadly, I haven’t had fish tacos for a very long time! So, it only seemed fitting that I would make my own Paleo version of fish tacos this Cinco de Mayo.

Pan-Fried Tilapia Meal

Paleo tilapia
This post should really be titled “My love affair with pan-fried fish” because I can’t stop making it! I think I’ve had pan-fried fresh fish 3 times already in the past week!

I’ve generally been cooking wild cod, but I started thinking about tilapia after visiting Costa Rica. You’re probably confused – what’s Costa Rica got to do with tilapia? Apparently, tilapia is a huge export from Costa Rica, although my friends didn’t catch anything but red snapper when they went deep sea fish there. As it happens, tilapia is also one of the cheapest types of fish you can buy in the US. I got these tilapia filets for $6.99 at my local fishmonger and cooked them with some coconut carrot mash and egg fried zucchini slices. It was a really easy meal.

Salmon Stew/Kitchen Sink Soup

salmon soup

What I love about this soup is the fact that you can put anything in it and it’ll still taste great.  The key ingredients are some good broth, some fresh vegetables, and some delicious protein.  Which all just sounds like the perfect proportions for healthy eating to me!

Rosemary Salmon


I had no idea what a world of difference fresh rosemary made until I started growing my own on my balcony.  You can check out the photo of my potted plant at the end of my last article, which was on my mum’s organic garden.  It’s so convenient to be able to just go pick some herbs and then throw it into a dish I’m making.

Ok, onto the recipe because it’s super simple!

Apple Curry Tuna Salad

Paleo Tuna Fish Salad

Here comes another simple recipe that requires Zero Cooking.  It’s becomes a welcome habit when you have little time in the evenings.  What I love about this recipe is the great mix of flavors (apples, curry, parsley, and a tiny hint of lime) and the fact you can make a bunch of it all in one go.  In fact, I took some for lunch today.

I first discovered the joys of adding curry powder to tuna fish when I made this recipe many years ago.  Since then, I’ve simplified and improved the recipe (I hope) with fresh curly parsley and apples!
