Schmidt Brothers Favorite Spring Recipes

Schmidt Brothers Favorite Spring Recipes

Spring is here! We don’t know about you, but for us, that means it is time to put aside our warm winter meals and turn to some lighter, fresher spring flavors. With the leaves starting to return to the trees and the flowers beginning to bloom, it is clear that it is finally time to refresh not only our wardrobes, but our meals too. We love making fresh and delicious meals that reflect the season we are in, and we are excited to share a couple of our favorites with you.

One of our go-to meals in the spring is a delicious fish with tomatoes, olives, and capers. There are many recipes for this dish out there, but our favorite comes from the Food Network. While you can use sea bass filets, as the recipe suggests, you can also use other types of fish, such as Dover Sole or any other white fish that you prefer. With filets, you do not have to go through the struggle of deboning the fish (unless you choose to of course). If you purchase a whole fish or filets with bones, we recommend using a boning knife. This recipe is fairly simple, requiring little chopping. For the chopping, we recommend reaching for your favorite chef’s knife, and if you don’t have one, the Schmidt Bros. Heritage Chef Knife is one of our favorites. Cooking has no rules, so feel free to change up the recipe in any way you like. For us, we really love adding fresh lemon juice at the end of the recipe for a tangy twist, and we recommend serving the fish over polenta or rice pilaf!

Looking for a family-friendly spring recipe?

We love chicken primavera, a dish that calls for any spring vegetables you have on hand and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Primavera means spring in Italian, and while the recipe calls for asparagus, frozen peas, and tomatoes, you can truly add in any vegetables that are available to you this spring. We like this Chicken Primavera recipe from the Pioneer Woman because it requires one pot and her directions are clear and detailed. There is so much room in this recipe to make it your own. Don’t like parmesan? You can add in whatever cheese you prefer. You can also choose any pasta shape you like, add in completely different vegetables than the ones she recommends, or even follow the recipe to a T. For this recipe, you will again need a chef’s knife (like the Schmidt Brothers Artisan Damascus Chef) or a Petit Chef knife (like the Evolution 6" Petit Chef) to cut up the chicken and the vegetables. We hope you try out these recipes and let us know in the comments what you thought!
