Mother-in-Law Salmon (3-4 Servings)
Here is an easy and tasty salmon recipe I found on the DinneraLoveStory blog.  It is easy, tasty and for all ages from baby on up.  I used Artic Char instead of Salmon and it worked well.
Enjoy! ~ Katie
Ingredients:
  • 1 pound salmon, cut into 3 or 4 fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the salmon fillets on the parchment. Sprinkle with the salt (except for baby’s portion) and pepper to taste.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and mustard. Stir in the parsley and garlic.
  • Spoon the olive oil mixture over the salmon fillets. Roast the fish until it flakes easily in the center when tested with a fork or knife, 12 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness. If you’re serving a baby, cool and flake the fish with a fork.

Our Table…Granola

During the winter I feel like granola should have more oomph to it. This is an updated version I make when there is a lack of fresh fruit.  This recipe can easily be doubled.
Updated Granola Recipe
Ingredients:
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1 cup hulled raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup hulled raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts – roughly  chopped
  • 1/2 cup almonds – roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 or 2 egg whites depending on the egg size
Instructions:
  1. Pre-heat oven 300F
  2. Mix first 11 ingredients together
  3. In a separate bowl whip the egg whites until frothy then add to the granola mix
  4. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  5. Bake for 45 minutes.
Feel free to add dried fruit at this point. Granola will keep for two weeks in pantry or you can freeze it.

Ginger Fried Rice
This recipe for Ginger Fried Rice from Jean Georges is fantastic!  Last time I made it I stirred in some cooked shrimp to fill it out.  Whatever you do – don’t skip the fried egg on top, it makes it!
Enjoy!

Our Table…Okonomiyaki

OKONOMIYAKI
This is a recipe for a Japanese street food that has recently become incredibly popular.  It can be an appetizer or a part of a main course.  It is sometimes called Japanese pizza.  There are many variations if you look online, this is a good starter one since you will probably have most ingredients and it is delicious.  Even better with a glass of Saki!

I am always looking for good appetizer recipes especially around the holidays. Don’t get me wrong I am usually happy with a hunk of cheese, but sometimes you just need to mix things up a bit. Here are two I tried and they were a big hit. They do require a bit of prep but you can do a lot if it a day or two before.
