It's been busy around here. Nathan started back to public school today. He needed more socialization and to navigate environments that were not home. His first day seemed to be a good one. Nolan is still at home with me although he's taking a few classes so he's not just here at home. New opportunities are presenting themselves.
I've been trying to eat a bit healthier lately. Tonight I made one of Mike's favorite dishes: Asian Grilled Salmon. It is really easy and very delicious. The recipe is for the grill but I just pop it into a 400 degree oven for 30 or so minutes and it turns out just the same. Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets
1/2 cup green onions or chives (I just realized I forgot to add these tonight!)
2 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP minced garlic
1 TBSP sesame oil (use olive oil if you don't have sesame.)
1 TBSP peeled and minced ginger root
Mix last four ingredients in a bowl. Put salmon into a foil packet, sprinkle the onions over the salmon and pour the sauce over it all. Seal up the packet and place on a medium hot grill until the fish flakes, about 20 minutes. Totally delicious.
For a really easy meal, put fresh asparagus coated with olive oil into another foil packet and set beside the salmon. They cook in about the same time. We like our asparagus crisp with a sprinkling of kosher salt.
