Bacon Littleneck Clams

My entire house smells so good that I want to eat it.

Seriously.

Two hours after creating this dish, it still smells incredible. It makes me a bit bummed that the hubby and I ate it all down to the last drop of delicious molho (that’s Portuguese for scrumptious sauce).

I enjoyed this meal as is, while the hubby dipped some Portuguese bread into the molho. I know for sure that this would have possibly been the best meal ever if it was served over pasta…. Grrrr paleo! Good news is that I thoroughly enjoyed it, had no guilt, and enjoyed feeling satisfied instead of stuffed afterwards.

When shopping for little neck clams, the smaller the better. Our supermarket had fabulous looking little guys on sale this week, so I couldn’t resist. Actually, who am I kidding? I will probably hit them up again later this week and make the same exact thing again!

Lemon Thyme Rainbow Trout

It’s trout season!  I know this makes my daddy-o very happy because they stock the rivers by us.  Opening day, he went out with my husband and they brought home 7 delicious fish!  I love two things about this:

1. My father and husband get along great.
2. Fresh fish for dinner!

I was struggling with a way to make them tastier than just straight up grilling them, so I decided to make a sauce that the Portuguese in me would call a “molho”.  You could use anything you have around the house to make this scrumptious, so I went with what I had.  Who knew that my garden thyme would have survived the winter!?  While I grilled up a big fish feast, I have scaled down the recipe to serve two.
