another salmon recipe keeper

August 24, 2011


From homeschool to food, don’t you love how I can jump from one topic to another so quickly?! I am a lifestyle blog after all, at least I think of it that way. I am sure there will be lots more school talk round these parts, especially since this is all so new to us and there are so many aspects of it that I want to capture and reflect upon. All in all, homeschooling day two went well, I just need to be more patience. God, help!

On a food note, we tried out this delicious salmon recipe last week. I really liked it, though next time Ben and I both agreed that the recipe could go a bit lighter on the vinegar.

Marinated Salmon with Watermelon-Sesame Salsa (via Kaiser Permanente recipes)

Instructions:

Marinate salmon fillets for 20 to 30 minutes in two cups puréed watermelon, 3 oz (3 to 4 inch long piece) grated fresh ginger, 1 cup sake, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar, 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes and 1 tsp salt.

For the salsa:

1 cup diced and seeded watermelon
about 1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cucumber diced
1 Tbsp toasted (dark) sesame oil
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tsp red pepper flakes
3 to 4 leaves of fresh mint chopped
1/4 bunch of cilantro chopped
2 tsp sugar and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil.
Mix and adjust seasoning and sesame oil to taste.

Grill the salmon fillets or roast in a preheated olive oiled baking dish at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes. Arrange the fillets on a bed of mixed lettuces, garnish with cherry tomatoes. Top the salmon and the lettuces with salsa. Serves four.

The recipe contains onions, which I can’t really stand right now, but having ice cream afterwards makes the lingering onion taste in my mouth go away. Problem solved. These days though I am craving some sort of teriyaki beef. Hopefully, Ben and I can get a date night in on Friday and satiate this craving of mine. I so can’t wait to have my normal appetite back and have me some sashimi and beer! That’s right… I am looking forward to drinking a beer!
Are you craving anything lately?
