Food Recipe: Pan-seared Salmon

Posted on

Boyfriend and I was craving salmon a couple of days ago so I woke up early, went to the supermarket, and started on the recipe at 10:00 AM! I wanted the salmon to marinate for as long as possible…we actually didn’t cook it until about 6:30PM! The recipe turned out SO delicious. The marinate really seeped through the salmon and gave it great flavor. I wanted to share this recipe with you guys. It really is amazing and easy, easy to make. Salmon is a great source of protein and little fat. So healthy for you and so delicious!

Servings: 8
Ingredients:
salmon
– 2 pounds of salmon.
– Juice of 1 lemon
– 3 cloves of garlic
– 1/4 cup vegetable oil
– 1/3 cup water
– 1/4 cup soy sauce
– 1/3 cup brown sugar
– Pepper to taste
– Salt to taste

1. Clean the salmon and pat it DRY.
2. Divide and cut salmon fillet into 8 pieces, as equal as possible.
3. Salt both sides of the salmon fillets.
4. Place salmon into a plastic bag.
5. Stir lemon juice, vegetable oil, water, soy sauce, brown sugar, and pepper into a bowl.
6. Pour the marinade into the bag and throw in 3 cloves of crushed garlic (not chopped).
7. Seal the bag and marinate for at least 1-2 hours. The longer the better.

11. Flip it and cook on the other side for 4-5 minutes until brown glaze appears.
12. Serve immediately and enjoy! =)

Food Review – Sweet Tomatoes (Take-out)

Hi!

So glad you guys liked the ramen post yesterday. Ramen may not be the healthiest thing but when prepared right, it can be a great healthier alternative to junk food. Needless to say, it is savory and satisfying, especially during those cold winter nights.

Today, I’m going to do a restaurant reviews for Sweet Tomatoes. Sweet Tomatoes is a franchise so there are many locations all over the world. It is buffet style; they offer a wide range of soups, bakery goods, pasta, and a huge salad bar. The only time boyfriend and I eat Sweet Tomatoes now is when we get take out. When we are craving the breads/pasta/salads — the whole shabang, we get the $9.79 deal which gives us a large container of salad, a small bag for breads/muffins, and two 8 oz containers for soup/pasta. The only thing bad about take-out is you don’t get to try all the soups since you only get two containers and the bakery bag is really small so you can’t a lot. Majority of the time, we just get one salad container as our takeout. A salad container is about $5.89 and it is SO SO SO worth. I cannot stress it enough! Their salad bar is 45 feet long – containing, about 5 freshly prepared salad (caesar, summer medley, asian chicken salad, spinach and strawberries, etc..they make it every 30 mins and alternate the flavors depending on the season, and make you own fixings such as spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, potato salad, tuna salad, egg, seeds, mushrooms, anything you can think of to put on a salad.

Boyfriend and I are able to get full off ONE take-out container making it about $3 for each of us! We are STUFFED. When we eat in, we usually don’t eat much and it’s 9.49 a person, totaling the meal to $20! But no, we’re cheap so we take out for $6. Haha!

Here’s pictures of our take-out last week….st1st2

I wanted to put the salad bowl next to the cereal box so you guys can get a feel of how big this salad was!
What I put in my salad: a tiny bit of caesar salad, a whole bunch of baby greens and spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, potato salad, tuna salad, egg, sunflower seeds, corn, and pasta. I don’t like to add the prepared salads because those add a ton of calories and plus when I put all the potato/tuna salad and toppings, those give it a TON of flavor already. Putting the topping over a bunch of prepared salads make the taste too strong and flavorful to me. But cmon, is that big tub of a salad a great deal for $6?? You can bet I stuff it as much as I can! Haha

You guys should go to sweet tomatoes…and get take out! I don’t think it’s totally worth it eating in and paying triple, quadruple, or however depending on how many people are eating. Plus this way, you won’t be stuffing your face with all the pastries! Have a good day everyone!

Namaste,
Jenn
