i've decided to massively limit my eating out. in an effort to save some money for camera equipment, photoshop as well as some other mac software, etc i'm for-going sushi at sushi zanmai this week.
did you hear that? yeah, that loud sound was my heart breaking.
instead, i decided to cook salmon at home - and so i toyed with a few items in the pantry and this is what i came up with. this slightly sweet, slightly spicy salmon was super duper easy to cook up - so if you're looking for a fast fish dish - consider adding this one to your repertoire.

|gorgeous atlantic salmon|
- 2 salmon fillets
- 1/8 cup maple syrup
- 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper - according to your heat preference
- 1/8- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes - according to your heat preference
- salt and pepper
cilantro lime jasmine rice
- 2 cups cooked jasmine rice
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 2-3 stalks green onion green portion removed, whites cut into rounds
- 1/2 fresh squeezed lime
- salt and pepper
cook rice according to instruction - you'll want 2 cups of cooked rice in the end. toss cooked rice with cilantro, green onion, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
super fast, fresh and simple - this dish was the perfect way to satiate my appetite for fish, plus it was way more affordable then going out for sushi. i heated up some organic edamame and served that on the side with kosher salt. was a great, refreshing meal! i've got some really good ideas for a fresh tuna poke - so stay tuned. the next time whole foods has some decent looking sushi grade tuna i'll dive into that endeavor.
for now, so long. have a great long weekend and be sure to stop by these other bloggers websites to check out their fares!
