Salmon

I love fish.  Eating fish–any kind of fish:  sushi, fried, sauteed, grilled.  I have been craving fish lately, and had some amazing salmon marinated with Dale’s Seasoning.  It was grilled, and truly yummy.

Our grill is a charcoal grill, and not the best when you just want to quick grill something.  So we decided to pan sear them.  I marinated the salmon filet’s in about 1/2 cup of Dale’s Reduced Sodium Seasoning for about one hour.We just pan seared them, skin side down in a bit of olive oil.Cook on the skin side first (about a third of the way through), and flip just to finish the cooking (maybe two minutes maximum).Hint from Gordon Ramsey: score the salmon skin before cooking will ensure that the fish won’t curl up during cooking.  It worked (like I question him and his suggestions – ha).img_1074My plate with a bit of jasmine rice, an roasted snow peas.  This will be my go to recipe for Salmon for a while.

Meal Planning

Nope.  Not this week.  Have I cooked?  Nope.  Not this week.  I so needed to, but with traveling back on Saturday (15 hours in the car), and unpacking, and laundry on Sunday (yada, yada, yada), I am happy to functioning with my new job this week.  Adult lunchables, and Taco Bell (protein bowl-no rice!) have been my friends.

So, real life, right? Not all of social media is happy – mine especially!  I post things that try to encourage myself, and hopefully you as well!

But today…truth…I didn’t meal plan for the week.  I didn’t do much to get through this week.  Oh, well, so goes life, right?  So, happy Thursday!!  And…this weekend I will meal plan, well, there is hope.

Blessings!

Perfect Meal

I follow a lot of amateur cooks, chefs, and foodies on social media and this has been making the rounds lately.  I am fascinated by Julia Child, and one of these days hope to purchase one or all of her cookbooks (or maybe will get them as gifts-hint hint).

But, I find this so interesting that her last meal would be a chicken – not beef or duck – but a perfectly roasted chicken.  I like roasted chicken, but for my last meal?  Maybe I just haven’t have the perfect roasted chicken?  I understand the seafood, and the dessert, but again, I come back to the chicken.

Have you had such a perfectly roast chicken that you would want it as your last meal?  What would you have as your last meal?

Mine would be cold as ice oysters on the half shell, a heavily marbled bone-in rib-eye steak medium rare, and steak fries – crispy, crunchy ones.  If I could have anything, cooked by anyone, it would be my Oma’s kase spaetzle with my Mom’s chocolate cake.

Blessings.
