Hey! I have missed all of you so much. Though I’m not returning with a full start to finish recipe, I did some cooking, and I definitely waned to share with all of you – especially since I brought my camera out. I also wanted to let all of you know that I regularly update my instagram. My profile is bakingwithbooks.
1.5 lb skin-on salmon cut into three portions
Seasoning blend for salmon: kosher salt, black pepper, Herbs de Provence, smoked paprika, hot paprika
One pint mixed (orange and red) cherry tomatoes, rinsed and stems removed
½ large shallot, sliced or roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
Fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Kosher salt and pepper
Strawberry balsamic dressing (found at Whole Foods)
In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, drizzle a fair amount of olive oil and add in the shallots and garlic and let them sweat and infuse into the oil.
After about 1 minute, add in the tomatoes, season generously with salt and pepper and allow them to blister for about 3 minutes.
Remove tomatoes to a bowl.
Add a little more olive oil to the pan and place the salmon skin-side down into the pan, searing for about 2 minutes.
Flip and continue cooking for about 4-5 minutes.
Add back in the tomatoes and add in a small amount of strawberry balsamic.
Remove from heat when salmon is finished (should be moist and still slightly pink).
I hope you enjoy this photo of my half-eaten bowl of pasta as much as I enjoyed eating it. It has spelt spirelli and penne, tomato sauce, plain tofu, arugula, tomato sauce, curry powder and is sprinkled with gomasio and nutritional yeast.
My favorite go to meals I make when I want to make something fast and yummy
•red quinoa, spicy chick peas and roasted broccoli with garlic and vegan Parmesan
•cucumbers, tomatoes, red peppers and lettuce tossed in salt and pepper and cayenne with roasted chickpeas homemade red sauce , avocado with paprika on a bed of lettuce
When your boyfriend waits for you after work with vegan pastries (blueberry muffin and cheesecake) and lets you play with his new camera lens 😍😍 And I had never tried anything from Vegan Folie’s, it’s so good 💫
