Thanks for the support, everyone! We now return to your regularly scheduled programming, almost a week late, heh:
I didn't even realize the coincidence here: This salmon dish that I'd had bookmarked to try from How Sweet It Is saved for my next post, not even realizing I had it scheduled to post at the end of this week. Wednesday would have been my Dad's 52nd birthday--and last year I honored his memory by cooking fish for the first time.
And, yet again, I have another fish dish.
|Took my pictures too late in the day, oh well.|
I'm not religious, and I describe my spirituality as agnostic at best--but sometimes I think I believe in signs and such. The universe surely works in mysterious ways, and definitely whenever my Dad is involved. Little coincidences like this make me smile.
|Dad, doing what he loved best: digging up rocks.|
This was from one of our many trips to Herkimer NY to mine for the
"Herkimer Diamond"--a quartz crystal stone shaped like cut diamonds
|In 2006, just one year before he passed away.|
This was my high school graduation, one of the last pictures I have of him.
(Adapted only barely from How Sweet It Is Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon)
|No ingredients picture, so here's a lovely picture of the marinade!|
- 1 1/2 pounds raw salmon
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, grated
- A few squeezes of orange juice
- 1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
- 1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
- 4 green onions, sliced
-Heat up your grill! Prepare a layer of tinfoil on it to prevent messing it up too much.
-Combine olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, orange juice, vinegar, brown sugar and whisk well until combined. Pour all into a ziplock bag with salmon, then refrigerate for 30 minutes.
|There was some sort of skillet thing I used on my friend's grill|
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- Couple squeezes of orange juice
-Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour over salmon.
|I assume pictures like this will show up on one of those |
