Something’s Fishy

It’s getting to the point where I’m craving home cooked meals. There’s just something to be said for your mom making a warm and delicious, straight-out-of-the-oven meal (or in this case grill).

The warm weather is coming to an end as many saw the first snowfall of the upcoming winter season. Luckily, in cloudy Carlisle, there was no snow sighting to be seen. We should all take advantage of the nice weather that mother nature so graciously is giving us and use the grill to cook some salmon. I actually wasn’t a fan of salmon until this meal, so props to my mom for finding this recipe.

I always found that salmon was too ‘fishy’ for me. To eat it, I would have to drown it in Teriyaki sauce so all I could actually taste was, well the sauce, but I’ve graduated. Mazel Tov to me because now I can eat salmon plain, but then again, I really prefer to have some form of a topping on my salmon. Maybe it’s a form of PTSD where I immediately think the fish is going to be, well, ‘fishy’. So here’s the fabulous recipe that made me actually start to crave salmon.

1 1/2 lbs. of Norwegian salmon

1/4 cup of Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki

Pour the Teriayki sauce on the Salmon to marinade for about 30 minutes

Heat the grill.

Place the fish on a grill sheet and cook the fish for about 5 minutes per side.

(A grill sheets allows you to cook fish on the grill without it breaking apart and falling through the slats)

2 packages of Tasty Bite Madras Lentils

Heat the lentils according to the package.

Spoon over the salmon and cozy up with some sweatpants and enjoy, because what the hell, sweatpants are comfy.
