Salmon is probably one of my favorite foods. Light, buttery and simply delicious you can’t go wrong with salmon. Unless you don’t like salmon. And well, I married a non-salmon loving man.
So I’ll occasionally eat salmon when we go out to dinner. Or I make salmon when he’s not home.
On Saturday night I had a date night with myself. I even enjoyed a glass of wine.
Saturday was uber productive for me. I worked out and cleaned the house all before 10:30am. I then spent the afternoon running errands and enjoying not having anywhere to be. A serve downpour sent me scurrying home early afternoon. Thankfully I had all the necessary ingredients for an incredible dinner. (Which was much needed because a girl cannot live on a protein bar lunch.)
Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon is perfect for entertaining or simply entertaining yourself. Since it was only me eating, I cut down on the amount of marinade substantially. For one: 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 1/2 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce), 1 garlic clove, 1 teaspoon ginger. And for the glaze: 1 tablespoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon tamari, ginger to taste and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
And on the side, a Japanese Restaurant-Inspired salad with a homemade Carrot-Ginger Dressing. (Recipes from It’s All Good.)
A delicious date-night for one.
