I hope all of you had a fun & relaxing weekend! Our weekend was really nice :) It was recharging and great time spent with family. I really needed this ‘mental’ (and physical) vacation from work this weekend. I’m still wondering though- when are they going to make the 3-day weekend?! lol. That would be a dream.
So many of your asked for my salmon recipe last night, so I thought that would be the second recipe I share after the awesome brownie caramel pecan cake I posted about yesterday!
By the way- Eric said that cake was the best cake I have ever made. I was floored. I mean, I have made TONS of cakes over the 8.5 years we’ve been together! So as we call really good recipes, ‘it’s in the vault’ so to speak. :D
Speaking of which, so is this next recipe. This salmon is so good non-salmon lovers will drool over it. Eric doesn’t like salmon and he can’t get this down fast enough! It tastes like it is from a gourmet restaurant. It is that good!
Baked Dijon Salmon
Obtained from the lovely Esmee from All Recipes
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.
- Brush each salmon fillet lightly with honey mustard mixture, and sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the bread crumb mixture.
- Bake salmon 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with a wedge of lemon.
[I doubled this recipe as we used about 2-3 times the amount of salmon]
I’m telling you, this is the best salmon you will ever taste!!!
It was amazing served with roasted squash, asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes. More on those later!
Ok, guys. I had a slight set-back in the recovery department yesterday. I don’t know if it was because I was on my feet all day, but my injury really started to hurt again. :( I hope I didn’t do something to it. It is so frustrating not being able to get a bone scan when I need it done. The wait could be another month! Argh.
I have an appointment to see my Sports Medicine doc tomorrow at 10am. She is going to look at my x-ray that I had to pick up from the x-ray clinic:
The X-ray clinic said it is normal, but my doc wants to look at it herself to make sure.
Hopefully it goes well. Sitting all day is not fun!
Sketchie as a kitten….:D
