Salmon is one of the fish we eat a lot of in our home. It can be a bit more expensive than other fish, so I look for it on sale, or buy it in large pieces from Costco. When I get the large pieces, I portion it out and freeze some for later. I am a woman that uses the freezer on a regular basis! I used to use my vacuum sealer a lot, but I have found that if you know what’s in the freezer and use everything in a timely manner, The freezer resealable bags work well.
One of the aspects of cooking fish for dinner that I like so much is that it is fast! Usually I will just season with salt, pepper, and other seasonings (depending on my mood), drizzle a little olive oil in a pan, and sauté the fish flipping once, and dinner is done in minutes.This recipe below takes a little bit more work and time, but the flavor: sweet, salty, and a little bit nutty makes for a great change. It definitely dresses the meal up and makes it “fancy” in our home.
