Kevin's Ginger Salmon

My friend Jami's dad (Kevin) made up this recipe, and it is seriously one of the best salmon recipes I've ever tried!!!

salmon fillet
lemon pepper
soy sauce
lemon juice
 sea salt
garlic powder
brown sugar (splenda)
ginger root
onion powder
olive oil

Take a baking dish, line with foil, and spray with vegetable oil.  Take skin off fish an cut into portion sizes.  Lay into baking dish.  Pour lemon juice over the fish, then soy sauce, covering the fish lightly.  Sprinkle lemon pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and brown sugar over the fish next.  Take ginger root and peel it, then shred it and sprinkle over the salmon.  Pour a little olive oil over the salmon in a zigzag type covering.  Next sprinkle a little more soy sauce over the fish and a little more sea salt.  Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.

Heart of Darkness Seasoning

I stole this recipe from the Cook This Not That cookbook.  It is fabulous on tilapia, but I'm sure it would taste great on other fish or even chicken.

1 tsp each: cumin, paprika, cayenne, oregano, black pepper, and salt

Just mix together and use as a dry rub on raw meat!  I also usually drizzle a little olive oil on the fish and then bake.

Spinach, Strawberry, and Feta Salad

This salad is light and refreshing... but it's the dressing that really makes it!

Sliced strawberries
Crumbled feta
Sliced almonds or pine nuts (optional)

1 lemon - zest and juice (2T juice, 1/2 t zest)
2T white wine vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1T vegetable oil
1t poppyseeds

Mix well and toss with salad

Happy Cooking!
