Tasty Tuesday...on Wednesday?
I know it's Wednesday, but I made this meal on yesterday. So, technically, it still counts.
Last night, I posted this pic to Instagram and it got more likes than some of my outfit posts!
Yall, this food was sooooooo gooooooood!!!!!!! So good, that I'm breaking it all down for you to enjoy.
Garlic Paprika Salmon
First of all, I buy the family-sized bag of frozen salmon at Kroger and I cook them frozen! For this recipe, I lined a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and placed a little cooking rack on top. Spray a little cooking spray on the rack and place my frozen salmon on top. I poured a little olive oil over the fillets and them sprinkled on a little salt, pepper & paprika. I then spread on about 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic on to each fillet. Bake in the oven on 400 degrees for 25 minutes from frozen. Done!
Savory Sweet Brussel Sprouts
OK. Get your notepad out and get ready to write this one down, because you're going to want to remember this recipe for the rest of you days! I came across this recipe on the Real Simple website and modified it to our tastes. Basically, I just left out the raisins.
2 lbs of brussel sprouts, trimmed and halfed
6 strips of bacon
1 large shallot
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of honey
salt and pepper
First, toss your brussel sprouts in the oil, salt and pepper. Lay them out on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Roast them a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes, flipping once half way through. While your sprouts are roasting, cut up your bacon into 2 inch strips and fry. Remove the bacon and set to the side. Pour off about 2/3 of the grease. With the remaining grease, toss in your shallots and cook for about 4 or 5 minutes. Add your red wine vinegar and then add in your roasted brussel sprouts. Toss in the pan for about 2-3 minutes and then add your bacon. Pour into your serving bowl and then drizzle with honey. Serve!
"Baked" Sweet Potatoe
I rinsed off 3 single serving sized sweet potatoes in cold water and then put them in the microwave for 15 minutes (flipping them over at 5 minute increments). Once done, let them rest in the microwave for a minute or two (or five), before taking them out. To fix them up, split them down the center and fluff the insides. Add in a pat of butter, a pinch of salt, a dash of nutmeg and little bit of brown sugar and continue to mash. Done!
I am not over-exaggerating when I tell you that this meal was amazing! I may cook it all over again tonight!
