Hey hey hey! How’s the day going? Thank you so much all of the sweet wishes about my nerve repair surgery. Everything went well and I’m on the mends! I took the day off yesterday to rest a bit but am back in the swing of things now. I also have a sweet splint on my hand, which makes me look pretty tough, like I punched through a window or something. 😉 P’s 6 month update is up on the family page. I still can’t believe she’s half a year old.
For today, let’s talk about my favorite fish!
Salmon was one of the first meals I cooked for the Pilot when we were dating (10 years ago!). I had just gotten off work and was on the way to grab groceries and cook dinner for us at my apartment. I called my Uncle Eric (<— chef and he always amazing ideas for meals and menus), to see what I should make. The menu: salmon (with a ginger, soy sauce and orange dressing), wasabi mashed potatoes, and roasted asparagus. It sounded fancy, but was still doable. This was key since I was very new to the cooking game.
