Ethiopian Berbere Salmon | Sweet & Sorrel

Ethiopian Berbere Crusted Salmon with Timatim Tomato Salad

Hi there, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know I did! Before I get into why it was such a fun weekend, let’s talk about this Ethiopian Berbere Crusted Salmon with Timatim Tomato Salad! Let’s face it, salmon can be kind of boring but not today! This simple salmon recipe cooks in just 15 minutes and requires very little prep! Its flavorful and unique. A perfect summer cookout dish! Okay, back to why this weekend was so fun (hint: this salmon was definitely a factor). One thing I love about summer in D.C. is rooftop cookouts. In D.C., there aren’t 4 seasons, there are 5: the fifth being rooftop cookout season. Seriously. Just visit the city in the summertime and you will find at least one rooftop packed with people grilling, chilling, or some combination of the two. And this weekend, the D.C. weather gods decided to smile down on the city, giving us a perfect sunny and humid-free day. So what did I do? Host a rooftop cookout of course! I am definitely …

Breakfast Crostini 3 Ways | Sweet & Sorrel

Breakfast Crostini 3 Ways

Hi all, welcome to July! You might be thinking, Danielle, back-to-back posts?!! What’s going on here? My personal goal is to post a new recipe every week. But since this is a holiday week (the 4th of July is Wednesday and I’ve decided to treat the entire week as a holiday!), I wanted to do something a little special. Hence, these breakfast crostinis! Breakfast for me is usually something on the go. Which is so sad because I really love sitting down and making my meals an event. But I love sleep way more. I’ve found that portable toasts/crostinis solve this dilemma for me, because they are super easy to make and very satisfying. And the star ingredient is bread. Which is obviously one of the greatest things ever invented (apologies to all my gluten intolerant friends, you really are missing out!). Since I also normally work out before eating breakfast, I tend to look for a breakfast option that has a good amount of protein and carbs to help with my recovery. These crostinis …

Grilled Jerk Shrimp Skewers | Sweet & Sorrel

Grilled Jerk Shrimp Skewers

Hi, and welcome to the first post on Sweet & Sorrel! I thought a lot about what I wanted to prepare for the very first dish on Sweet & Sorrel, and behold! Grilled Jerk Shrimp Skewers. This dish is worthy of being the first recipe to be featured on the blog because it’s delicious, healthy, full of flavors from the Caribbean, and only takes about 15 minutes to prepare! Now you might be thinking to yourself, Danielle, a jerk recipe? How mainstream! While it’s true that “jerk” foods are now common outside of the Caribbean (think jerk chicken, jerk pork etc), few people actually understand what jerk seasoning is or know how to prepare it from scratch. Jerk seasoning is a flavorful, robust, seasoning common in Jamaican cuisine. Jerk seasoning comes in two main forms: a dry jerk rub, or a wet marinade. The dry rub is usually for things like pork, while the wet rub is used to both as a seasoning and a garnish that is brushed on top of prepared meats. Today, …
