We are currently in a salmon situation in our house, because every once in a while we get a little, oh, INDULGENT (more on that in a bit) and I have to get us back on a heathy eating track. And that always involves salmon, which is not only one of our favorite fishies, but is also a superfood (so are tea and blueberries by the way, two of my other faves!). And when you are doing a deep dive into healthy eating, anything that is a superfood sounds good to me. In this case, I kept a little of the naughtiness going by bathing my salmon in a mixture of bourbon and lime and other good things, but just enough to give it a little sass. Super good and good for you…let’s make it!
Is there anything more completely comfort food than supper out of a bowl? I DON’T THINK SO. And while I do love bowls full of soup and oatmeal and pastina with egg and cheese, my most recent supper in a bowl crush has been this sesame salmon rice bowl. Tender flaky roasted salmon, buttery avocado, sassy scallions and a lime and mustard dressing, all nestled in a bed of rice and served in your favorite bowl. Are you ready for some easy, healthy comfort food deliciousness? In a bowl? Let’s make it!
There is nothing easier to make and better for you than a nice piece of roasted salmon. Seriously, it’s 15 minutes from fridge to table, and salmon is a power food (and the best kind to buy is wild Alaskan salmon, if you can find it). But as wonderful as it is, plain roasted salmon can be, well, plain. Which is where this recipe for salmon with rosemary balsamic sauce comes in. While your delicious, nutritious salmon is roasting away, you can be whipping up this incredibly flavorful sauce that will make your kitchen smell all kinds of wonderful and your salmon taste all kinds of good. Ready to jazz up your salmon supper? Let’s make it!
This recipe for super easy salmon tartare was definitely inspired by my enduring love for all things sushi. Really really good wild-caught salmon mixed up gently with avocado, scallions, sesame seeds and a few other things to hold it together. A little bit spicy, a little bit creamy, a whole lot of delicious. And as easy as slicing up the salmon and avocado and the scallions and mixing them all up together – it’s almost not fair to call it an actual recipe. So whether you want to wow your friends with show-off appetizer, or serve it up on a regular old Tuesday night…let’s make it!
During the whirl of holidays that we are about to enter into, I am all about having breakfast for dinner whenever possible. Caramel french toast? Oh yes. Bacon Cheddar Bagel Panini? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! And in this case, it is all about pancakes. Or to be more specific, cute little smoked salmon silver dollar pancakes. And by the way, if you have a houseful of guests, you can treat them to these pancakes as actual, well, breakfast. Or if you are in charge of appetizers for your holiday shin-dig, they are perfect for that too. They are the quick but fancy delicious gift that keeps on giving! Read on to see just how easy they are….
A few days ago I wrote about my love affair with shrimp and grits, which is one of my favorite decadent comfort foods. But sometimes you want comfort food that is not only good for the soul but also good for the waistline, and that is where this recipe for salmon with brown butter sauce comes in. Yes, there is butter, but a reasonable amount, and it is combined with tangy salty capers and best of all, cooked slowly until it is brown butter. If you haven’t ever had the deliciousness that is brown butter (and more on that later), this is a great way to start, because we are going to drizzle it over a lovely, tender pile of flaked salmon, and whatever is getting you down is going to feel a little bit better.
