Baked soy and sesame salmon.

Simply place your salmon fillets in an oven dish on some grease-proof paper and pour over some soy sauce, drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Season with a little freshly ground black pepper and sea salt and bake until tender, about 20 mins at 200 Celsius in my oven.

Enjoy!

Why American Jews Eat Chinese Food on Christmas
A lack of dining options may have started Jewish Christmas, but now it's a full-fledged ritual.
By Adam Chandler

“But Schumer’s declaration that Jews and Chinese food are as much a match of necessity as sweet and sour are, is only half the wonton. The circumstances that birthed Jewish Christmas are also deeply historical, sociological, and religious.

The story begins during the halcyon days of the Lower East Side where, as Jennifer 8. Lee, the producer of The Search for General Tso, said, “Jews and Chinese were the two largest non-Christian immigrant groups” at the turn of the century.

So while it’s true that Chinese restaurants were notably open on Sundays and during holidays when other restaurants would be closed, the two groups were linked not only by proximity, but by otherness. Jewish affinity for Chinese food “reveals a lot about immigration history and what it’s like to be outsiders,” she explained.”

Alpha/Omega Relationship Headcanons

-An Alpha and Omega being best friends until one day the Alpha asks the Omega out on a date with them, the Omega is super flustered but agrees. The whole time leading up to the date they are really awkward around each other and just turn into blushing messes when they try to talk like they usually do

-The Alpha trying to impress the Omega by taking them somewhere really expensive and classy but it just serves to make them both even more uncomfortable, neither of them know what to talk about and finally the Omega just bursts out laughing because of how ridiculous the whole thing seems, the Alpha joins them and they decide to ditch the restaurant and pick up Chinese food to eat back at the Alpha’s apartment. The relationship just takes off after that

-Cuddles and neck kisses with the Omega all snuggled up on the Alpha’s lap just happily soaking up the affection and comforting scent that comes with it. The Alpha being so content nuzzling into the Omega’s neck and deciding they want to keep this Omega forever

-The Omega always being hit on and complimented by other Alphas but being so wrapped up in thoughts of their own Alpha that they don’t really catch on and end up replying cheerfully to each subtle advance. Their Alpha notices though and after a particular incident where the Omega’s Alpha neighbor asks the Omega to pick something up off the floor and then blatantly stares at their ass when they bend over, the Alpha is quick to growl at the other Alpha and drag their Omega away to start trying to convince them that it’s time that they live together and mate fully

-The first night living together and the little Omega is all curled up on their Alpha’s chest under the cozy blankets and the Alpha gently rubbing their back while the Omega sleepily mumbles about how happy they are and how much they love their Alpha and its just so cute and sweet that the amount of contentment and warmth in the Alpha’s scent is enough to lull the Omega to sleep, purring softly as they snooze

-The first heat together as mates and they are both so nervous and excited, the Omega even allows the Alpha to help build the nest because they love how interested their mate is in the whole process, half the time is spent jumping around and hitting each other with pillows though

-The Omega constantly stealing, and keeping, their Alpha’s hoodies and finally the Alpha takes revenge by taking one of the little Omega’s hoodies and it just barely fits on them but damn straight they will walk around in it all day with a smirk on their face as their Omega is dying of laughter and assuring them “yes dear you look so good in my clothes”

-The Alpha planning a trip for the two of them a few months in advance and they tell the Omega what day they’d be leaving and the Omega just casually clicks their tongue and goes “that won’t work, the baby is due that week” and the Alpha just being “oh right of cour-wait what baby?!” and being so overjoyed when their Omega informs them that they just found out they were pregnant

-As the Omegas belly starts to get bigger the Alpha just falls more and more in love. Constantly doting on the Omega and rubbing their tummy, crooning for their unborn children and joking that their mate is going to resemble a very beautiful whale in the near future. Being so protective that if the Omega needs to leave the house for any reason the Alpha will insist on accompanying them

-Being in the hospital after the two babies are born and the Omega being tired as hell but so happily watching their Alpha sit in the rocking chair crooning softly for the babies balanced against their shoulders as they rock them to sleep

-Being tucked away in the nest back home and the Alpha just laying there watching in adoration as their mate feeds the babies and starts cooing quietly while settling the little pups in next to them and as the Alpha kisses each if them goodnight they are just left wondering in amazement about how their very best friend became the love of their life and the mother of their children and how glad they are that they had the courage to awkwardly ask for that date all that time ago
