The snow started trickling in over the weekend and on Monday night it came down hard. I went from “Oh look there’s a little dusting of snow” to “Let me go back inside, get my snow boots on and grab the ice scraper for my windshield.” There is snow everywhere, I don’t even think these pictures do it justice! It truly turned into wintertime overnight up here.
And I’m flying to LA in 48 hours where the weather is 93 degrees. I think I might melt since my body is now so used to the cold!
Dinner – Sunday
Asian Marinated Salmon
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
- 2 scallions, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 3/4 to 1 pound fresh Alaskan salmon (we used Sockeye, but like King the best)
- In a large ziploc bag, combine all ingredients except salmon. Mix well and add salmon to the bag. Seal bag and refrigerate for 4 hours (that’s ideal, if you have less time that’s fine!).
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place fish and all the marinade in a 9×12 Pyrex making sure the top of the fish is covered with marinade. Bake for 10 minutes or until fish is cooked through. (Timing may vary depending on thickness of salmon, you want the salmon to cook through without drying out). Serve over brown rice and pour any remaining marinade on the top for added flavor.
Enjoy the warmth you LA people, see you soon!
