Fresh from the ocean, on a bed of greens, this is my kind of meal.
I got this recipe pretty much straight from bon appetit magazine, (only with less oil, more garlic n’ ginger) and I must admit, I felt all fancy while eating it, like I was dining at an elegant restaurant on the beach or something.
Besides being ah.maize.ing, the whole thing pulled together without a glitch. This would be a perfect entertaining meal!
Although quality salmon can be pricey, the super cheap cabbage, mushrooms and bok choy from my local farmers market made up for it. I seriously couldn’t believe it when she told me only 3$ for a basket full of exotic and crimini mushrooms. Farmer’s markets rock, find one near you with this handy dandy website.
That was one of the first things I did once I moved to Long Beach and I’m SO happy I did. I’m also happy it’s across the street from a Whole Foods, one (car) stop shopping!
Salmon simply seasoned with salt and pepper and a bok choy cabbage mix tossed with ginger and garlic was all it took to prep this dish.
Cooked with ease to perfection in the oven, and finished off with unbelievably amazing spoon-lick-worthy gourmet wasabi mayonnaise, your taste buds will be off their rockers with this meal.
Both Lui and I felt seriously satisfied, not stuffed, and didn’t have even the slightest desirable glimpse for anything else.
Until about two hours later, when my sweet tooth kicked in, luckily I had a stash of these key lime pies in the freezer to snack on.
Having a few premade treats has really helped me to avoid those convenient store runs for chocolate and popcorn. I live across the street… it’s so tempting!
Dinners like this help remind me I don’t need a pile of carbohydrates to feel complete with a meal.
Quick, easy, light and satisfying dishes is where it’s at.
Thanks bon appetit!
