Since I've been writing this blog I frequently seem to find myself saying "When I was younger I didn't eat X, Y or Z". Goodness, I didn't realize just how picky I was, and I'm beginning to think that it might be, my fault (just a teensy eensy bit...) that my kids are fairly picky as well. Salmon is another one of those foods that I wouldn't have touched 10 years ago but I can't get enough of now.
Try as I might, I don't always have the time to make a decent from scratch dinner with my full time afternoon chauffeuring job seeming to get into the way as I make my rounds in Carlsbad to soccer, dance and surf pick up and drop offs. As such, I'm always on the lookout for an item that helps me manage my time in the evenings but is still a good quality, and tasty as well. One of our favorite "go to" items on a busy night is Morey's Marinated Wild Salmon that I found at my local Costco. (Morey's has not idea that I'm writing anything about them, but I wanted to pass this info on to anyone else looking for an extraordinarily tasty wild salmon that is ready to go!). 6 individually packaged fillets per box wait to simply be unwrapped, thawed and cooked. Easy peasy on a weeknight without much time for cooking. I set the rice on to cook, pop the fish on the grill, toss together a quick salad and we have dinner in no time!
Last night after driving to dance and soccer this is exactly what I did! 3 perfectly grilled salmon fillets were ready for dinner when my son
Faced with 2 leftover fillets I threw together a Pasta Salad with Salmon this afternoon for lunch. The marinated salmon worked wonderfully in the salad that was dressed with a creamy, lemon spiked dressing. Tossed with pasta, onions, peas and apple and served over a bed of greens the salad was the perfect meal, not from the freezer.
