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).My plate with a bit of jasmine rice, an roasted snow peas. This will be my go to recipe for Salmon for a while.
I had a Premier Jewelry party on Sunday. I love having an excuse to get together with girlfriends, and trying on new bling. But I love feeding people. I like to see people happy when eating something I have prepared or made.
Although, I really didn’t make anything major as all I did was put some things together. Meat and salami tray, pickled okra and kalamata olives.I did make the Million Dollar Dip, and had cheese chunks, grapes, Stacy’s pita chips and Ritz crackers.Also made Buffalo Chicken dip, and tortilla chips.Plated smoked salmon or Lox with cream cheese, sliced purple onions, capers, and fried capers. Oh and some toasted bread, that I had to throw some out due to burning! Ugh. It was a such fun afternoon. Some food, wine, soda, and leftover Halloween chocolate rounded out the afternoon. I love girlfriend time, plus it gets my house clean!! Bonus!! What did you do this weekend?
I love salmon cooked or not cooked (sushi), so I just love salmon. I used the caper oil from the fried capers, and poured that in my casserole pan. Then I brushed the salmon with it as well. Added salt and pepper, and a couple of sliced lemons. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Be careful not to overcook. I almost overcooked these.The brinieness from the caper oil, and the sweetness of the salmon are an incredible combination. My portion with a spoonful of parmesan risotto, and the salmon with the fried capers. I am seriously in love with this dish.
