Miso-marinated cod with grilled pineapple relish

I’m forever on the prowl for ways to make fish enticing for my family. This simple method does the trick. Red miso and pineapple juice combine to make a flavorful, quick marinade. Meanwhile, fresh pineapple slices and scallions go on the grill. It all takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.

A quick take on a Chinese classic

This is a quick take on a popular Chinese classic. It’s made with sauteed pork tenderloin and shredded cabbage, which cook in just a few minutes in a hot wok. I have used whole wheat tortillas as the wrap.

Fish with cauliflower puree inspired by Houston chef

I take notes when I dine out to inspire my home cooking. These days those “notes” usually involve a camera. A quick scroll through my favorite restaurant photos prompted a trip to the fish market. Inspired by a recent dinner of swordfish with pureed cauliflower at Underbelly in Houston, the dinner menu that follows proves impressive despite simple ingredients and everyday techniques.

Marinita’s Peruvian ceviche

Dear SOS: On a recent trip up to Marin County (Calif.), we joined a few old friends at Marinita’s. Oh, my. I’m not a ceviche lover, but this takes the town. This would be a great recipe to have, if you can get it out of her. If you can’t — I’ll call the NSA.

A quick, easy coconut pudding

Tembleque is a Puerto Rican pudding made from coconut milk and cornstarch. And when I got my container to the car and dug in, I realized I had been missing something incredible. The pudding was sweet without being cloying, and thick without being chewy.

Fresh asparagus makes this stir-fry a keeper

Asparagus is the star of this dish. Play up that green color with strips of red bell pepper for contrast. Go with the protein of your choice: beef, chicken, shrimp, extra-firm tofu or, as here, boneless pork chops. Serve the stir-fry with steamed white or brown rice and, perhaps, an after-dinner bowl of green tea ice cream in keeping with that spring color scheme.
