After two weeks of almost-winter, summer has returned.
Mon mari was almost ready to give up on the grill.
I think he’s starting to like salmon, despite the fact that it’s fish.
I have to admit though…. I’m ready to start ‘real’ cooking again. It’s nice to have the summer off (almost) but it’s getting to be time to get back in the kitchen, seriously.
Before that happens, we have to finish off the orange marmalade. The tangy orange and salty soy sauce pair well with the sweet, slightly fatty salmon.
Grilled Glazed Salmon
Total time: 25 minutes
- 2 salmon fillets, 6oz each (180gr each)
- 2 tsp minced ginger
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup orange marmalade
- 1/4 soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- In small bowl mix all ingredients except salmon.
- Drizzle over salmon and allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
- Put salmon in a grill basket if using barbecue grill or on mesh grill pan if you don’t have a basket. Grill for 10 – 12 minutes, skin-side down, with the grill cover closed. Be careful not to overcook.
- Remove from heat and slide the salmon off the skin if needed.
Two weeks of cold weather inspired mon mari to start a new project…. the pantry.
This was the original kitchen.
Actually, I think I should say that this was the last kitchen.
The original kitchen was probably our TV room with the big fireplace.
This little room is clearly something that was added on.
Actually, not added on so much as a little corner of the barn enclosed.
The sink and a few cabinets were left.
I scrubbed it down and cleaned it up before we moved in but it became mon mari’s work sink and the puppies room and the catch-all for the house.
And it wasn’t insulated.
Mon mari decided it was time to make it decent.
I am going to miss the wallpaper, though…..
On another note….
I had commented some time ago about never having seen or tasted the much-loved Meyer Lemon.
My lovely s-i-l in Hawaii took pity on me and sent me some seeds.
I planted them.
I waited…. and waited…. and waited.
After six weeks of careful watering with no results I was ready to give up. I took a fork and dug around to have a look. I wanted to see if the seeds were there, rotting, or just gone.
I saw a sliver of green attached to a seed.
I quit digging, patted it back into place, gave it some water and put it in the sun.
There are two little bits of green on the other side. One, I’m sure is a weed, but the other….
We’ll water and wait.
