Roasted Salmon with Mango Salsa

Before I get started on this recipe for roasted salmon with mango salsa, I need to say this: I don't know about you, but in the heat of summer I like to get myself in and out of the kitchen as soon as possible...but I still stubbornly want a hot dinner.  Oh sure, I can go for a nice cool soup or salad now and again, but most of the time...hot food = dinner.  So I am constantly on the prowl for things that I can make in August while still looking like a virtual blur in terms of in the kitchen and then rapidly out of the kitchen.  Things that are warm and wonderful, but that still taste like summertime.  Things like this tender flaky roasted salmon topped with a cool and slightly spicy mango salsa, all nestled in a bed of warm baby spinach.  Good and good for you and fast in and out of the kitchen and ahhhh...

Flaked Salmon with Sesame Noodles

The Southern husband and I have a crush on salmon lately.  I've made it with buttered wine sauce, and I've roasted it with honey mustard.  Last week I soaked it in bourbon, and before that I made a smoked salmon and cream cheese pizza.  But I think my favorite of all of these is this super easy flaked salmon with sesame noodles.  The salmon is in little tender chunks, the noodles are in a zippy little sesame oil and soy sauce bath, and there's some chopped romaine for crunch.  And some black sesame seeds because I have them in my spice drawer and sometimes I just NEED to sprinkle black sesame seeds on things.

Easy Honey Mustard Salmon

Well, we made it to the other side of another delicious Thanksgiving, and I don't know about you, but I had some good eats.  Turkey, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, creamed onions, pumpkin pie, stuffing and did I mention pumpkin pie?  And so now I am beginning to put together the glimmerings of my Christmas menu, but in between now and then I am going to sprinkle in some good and good for you healthy suppers so that I have a fighting chance of fitting into my Levis in 2015.  And one thing we'll be having more than once is this scrumptious and super easy honey mustard roasted salmon.

Salmon in Buttered White Wine Sauce

I'm not sure why we don't have salmon more often in my house.  It's light and delicious and I think it is actually one of the so-called power foods, along with broccoli and blueberries and dark chocolate and bacon.  What?  Bacon isn't a power food?  Maybe in some people's world's it isn't, but in mine, bacon is the undisputed leader of the power food brigade.  But back at the salmon, periodically I realize that it is good and good for you, especially when you drizzle it in a super-simple, super-delicious buttery white wine sauce.

Incredibly Easy Salmon Spread

This recipe is so, so, so, so easy, I don't know if I even get to call it a recipe.  I guess technically it is a recipe, since it starts with a few ingredients and then turns into something different, but on the easiness scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is the easiest, it's pretty much a 15.  Your food processor might actually get miffed at you when it does all the work and YOU get all the credit.

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

If you told me (and please don't tell me this, this is for purposes of demonstration only) that I could only have one thing and one thing only for breakfast from now on, I wouldn't even have to think twice.  Because for me, at the very top of the breakfast happiness list is Eggs Benedict.  I love Eggs Benedict madly.  And because Eggs Benedict is not something you can eat on any sort of regular basis and still fit into your Levi's, when I do have them I like to make it An Event.
