roasted salmon with blackberry jalapeno butter sauce.
A few musings on fish and seafood…
1. I’m a big fan. But admittedly I don’t buy fish or seafood a lot because it tends to be on the pricier side and my kids don’t really dig it. Probably because I don’t serve it often enough. A vicious cycle.
2. Occasionally I’ll grab some salmon, shrimp, ahi, mahi or halibut when I can find it for $4.99-6.99/lb. Also, I’ve found Costco and those ethnic grocery stores have good prices on their fish and seafood so head there if you’re in the market.
3. If you aren’t a big ham person (as I am, or am not I guess), consider this salmon as part of a festive Easter lunch!
4. Yes, Mom, I’m FINALLY putting a fish recipe on the blog. Can I be your favorite daughter again?
Maybe they cancel each other out.
The salmon would be great grilled too! If you have a working bbq. I don’t. Not that I’m bitter or anything.
