As promised, today I am sharing with you the recipe for the delicious Asian Lime Salmon I made this week (the same day that Babycakes' Pancakes were born). If you can't tell, someone enjoyed their meal ------------> Moi! The other thing you can probably tell????? I don't really like rice. ESPECIALLY white rice. I left about 90% of it on the plate. But, dear hubby, who is half Korean, loves Loves LOVES white rice!! His secret favorite meal is literally white rice covered in soy sauce with a piece of melted cheese on it. Weird, I know. (And yes, I've tried to switch him to brown rice, but he won't go for it). Anyways, this meal was really tasty and really easy: my favorite combo :)
Introducing Asian Lime Salmon:
First I gathered a bunch of ingredients:
Then I had Babycakes help me stir the marinade:
We added a few extra ingredients and then smothered it over the wild salmon:
I then baked it at 400 degrees for 25 minutes... and VOILA: beautiful scrumptious Omega 3s. :) I topped the fish with extra sauce and crushed pistachios. MMMMMMMM!
And one other funny part of dinner: Babycakes didn't want to eat any of the broccoli... UNTIL... dear hubby told her to look at his "special broccoli babies" - which were really just tiny pieces of his regular broccoli. Then, BAM, she wanted those babies. Dear hubby fed her these "babies" one by one; it was hilarious!
