Seasoned Salmon Filet, Spinach Saute, and Cornbread
In my house, we try to force fish into our diet as much as possible. We have even made a fish convert out of one person. Well, at least he'll eat salmon and tuna. Scott (husband) and Abel (son) are hugely into this salmon and Scott has been perfecting his seasoning on this fish for months. It's terrific, give it a whirl!
Both apprentices (see side bar) worked hard on the cornbread and helped with the spinach. And afterwards they gave the meal two thumbs up!
When I was young, my favorite meals were the ones my mom made with simple ingredients. Steak, salad, and baked potatoes. We had salad 6 out of 7 nights growing up and the odd night out was reserved for some other veggie. I always swore I would not make salad when we ordered pizza in MY house. Guess what.
4-6 oz filets
Egg wash (sometimes we add honey)
Flour, sage, parsley, and Adobo seasoning for breading
Pan fry in a little butter and olive oil until cooked through or your preferred doneness
1 med onion
3-4 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
Saute in a little butter and season with either salt and pepper or Adobo
Jiffy mix all the way! Love that stuff and you can throw in any extra ingredients on hand- corn, cheese, cream cheese, onions, black beans, banana peppers, or do like we do and drizzle some honey on top and add an extra egg.
