Wasabi Salmon with Quinoa, Green Beans, Mushrooms, and Spinach
Salmon… mmm. I haven’t made any sort of fish dish it seems like for such a long time (maybe since my parchment paper fish entry..ignore my very very bad photography! Can’t believe I am taking you guys back to something like this ;) Hehe). So I decided to make salmon as one of my meals. Plus Dr. Oz keeps badgering me about eating fish a few times a week! You have to do what the Dr. tells you right?
I found this cool twist on salmon using a wasabi flavor base. I always love some wasabi with my sushi so I knew this had to be delish. This is a pretty easy recipe with a small number of ingredients. Easy to do on an already tiring day.
Recipe from MyRecipes for Wasabi Salmon:
I made some quinoa and used the leftover marinade as a sauce base to saute the vegetables in. I had spinach, green beans, and mushrooms. I sauteed the vegetables and used just a bit of the marinade to coat the veggies (can be very salty if you use too much since it was soy sauce based). I also put a bit of chicken stock to water it down so that the veggies were covered in sauce but also so that the flavors wouldn’t be toooooo intense on the veggies.
Okay, I hope you enjoy! :) To all my new followers, thank you for your follow! Yay! ^_^
Thanksgiving Dinner #2
This set of pictures is a little late, but better than never right? My first Thanksgiving was with my family in Virginia Beach. I had a second Thanksgiving dinner three days later with my brother and a few friends because he had to work on Thanksgiving and didn’t get to have Thanksgiving. I attempted to make everything from scratch (minus the dinner rolls). My brother contributed a few things as well. All in all, it was delicious! I was completely exhausted by the end of the night.
