Baked Dijon Salmon + My Pelvic X-ray

36 comments

Goodnight everyone!

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!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, for garnish
  •  

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
    2. In a small bowl, stir together butter, mustard, and honey. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.

    1. Brush each salmon fillet lightly with honey mustard mixture, and sprinkle the tops of the fillets with the bread crumb mixture.
    2. 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]

    It was amazing served with roasted squash, asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes. More on those later!

    Injury Report

    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

    well i’m no radiologist (just in pediatrics!) but that looks like a CT scan, not an x-ray. is that what you got? unfortunately all i see there are lungs so i can’t tell you much about your hip pain. not like i would be able to read it anyway!

    really??? Gosh I don’t know now. I told her to do my pelvic area and it was supposed to be an xray. what is a CT scan??

    Did you have to go in a weird round machine that kindof looked like a donut, and you went into the hole? If so, that’s a CT, not an x-ray. // The salmon looks delicious – I’ll have to file that recipe under ‘must try’ for later. We had salmon & asparagus salad for dinner tonight; it’s a south beach diet recipe but one of my favourites to serve when we have company over – easy to make, fast cleanup, tasty results = winner in my books. // Love the pics of Sketchie as a kitten! My husband is convinced that our boys (almost 1 yr old cats) have some bengal in them because they both have very defined markings on their undersides. I think he’s crazy, but they are pretty smart for run of the mill street cats, so who knows. Enjoy your Sunday night!

    Try not to stay over a long period of time ’cause the standing would put pressure on your pelvis. Would a relaxing yoga exercise help you a bit? Good luck with the doc’s appointment. Hope everything is ok. :) Good night.

    Reply #2 for the night, lol. I called my hubby in here to look at the cute Sketchie pics (and prove to him that our cats do not have Bengal markings, but he is still convinced…whatever…) Anyway, hubs is an osteopath and he is pretty sure that he was looking at a CT and not an xray, but he also says it just depends on what contrast was used (I have no idea what that means). He says the blob in the middle is your heart, the white spot on the top is part of your spine, and the two white u-shaped things on the bottom of the x-ray are ribs. He says everything looks normal from what he can see. Not sure if that means anything to you or makes you feel any better, but there’s your free health care advice for the evening =D

    I am so sorry about the pain! The salmon recipe looks really good and I am definitely trying that this week. just a question, is that King of Queens you are watching while playing with Sketchie?

    I hope the pain goes away soon! Sketchie is such a beautiful kitty. i loveee his markings! stunning. and that salmon? it looks amazzzzingg! love the recipe and can’t wait to try it out! what a cooking queen you have been lately!

    First your Sketchie is so cute! Im not much of a cat person but I would definitely want a cute cat like that! Second the picture you put up looks like a chest CT scan so perhaps you just put up the wrong pic? Because a pelvic x-ray looks a lot different. I don’t think the x-ray clinic could mess up that bad, but i guess you never know.

    Here is my anal Dr nature. That is a CatScan(CT.) They are taken in cuts/cross sections(slides) and they should’ve let you look at each cross section along with them. Maybe your Sport Med DR. will w/ let you look together.
    Of course in the states we don’t have socialized medicine so you could get a bone scan today if you wanted.
    Wish the best to you tomorrow and good luck with the long, long waiting you’ll have to endure.
    Just love that cat!

    I meant to write this earlier, but I really appreciate your thoughts on the Freshman 15 — because I (and probably most of us) still struggle with dealing with stress, adjustments, relationships, new environments, etc., etc. Even now, when I’m happily engrossed in the place/work I’ve wanted for some time — I am horribly stressed out. So thank you — I’m not a Freshman, but I’ll take on the advice/reminders I can get to be healthy inside and out!

    Sorry, your injury is bothering you again. I hope you find out more at your appointment today.

    The salmon looks awesome, I will be trying that one soon.

    My family is requesting I make your cake on Valentines day (we always have a fancy dinner that day as a family) I cant wait to see how they like it. Maybe I will make the salmon that day too !!

    Sketchie has gorgeous markings and the bengal leap is my favorite move of theirs!

    Angela,

    I have been reading your blog for awhile and love it! First of all, I’ve never had salmon but I’m going to try that recipe. I love fish…for some reason, salmon has always just scared me? :-)

    Also, I have SO BEEN where you are right now! My injury was very frustrating, and it took over a year for 3 different doctors to figure out what was wrong. I’m confident you will have a better prognosis, because you are being pro-active AND not running – something I didn’t do in the beginning (oops). :-) So, even though it’s the hardest, hang in there….and hopefully you’ll be back on that treadmill in no time!

    Your cat is GORGEOUS!!!

    I hope you’re feeling better soon… :(

    And that salmon looks amazing…I really need to cook fish more often. It is always my first choice when we go out to dinner, but for some reason it doesn’t make it on the home menu very often…

    That is such an awesome breed of cat – love the markings. And your salmon recipe sounds awesome. I love me some salmon, but I usually just cook it with some lemon & dill. That would be a nice change of pace :D
