Lunch was simple and delicious today!
Here’s our short-cut, lazy method that yields moist and tender salmon:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Place frozen salmon fillets (do not have to thaw) in a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil. Coat with a couple tablespoons oil and season with Cajun (or Creole) seasoning. Even if oven has not reached 375°F yet, you can put the sheet pan in and cook salmon for about 15 to 18 minutes. Then, turn oven to broil and broil salmon for another 5 to 7 minutes until cooked through – salmon should still be moist and tender. Please note that the cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your fillets.
Easy green bean stir-fry:
1 to 2 tablespoons oil
3 to 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 pounds green beans, rinsed, trimmed, and cut on the bias
1 to 2 tablespoons fish sauce, optional but it gives an indiscernible umami taste
Salt and white pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large pan. Add garlic and stir-fry until golden brown. Add green beans and seasoning, and cook till green beans are just tender.
Rice pilaf was made from the Near East Rice Pilaf Mix (original flavor) – quick and convenient.
Serve everything together. Enjoy!
