Mon mari hardly ever complains about ‘Fish Hell Day’ when he gets to cook it on the grill.
And especially not when it’s salmon.
We eat a lot of salmon.
It does get to be a challenge to find new ways to fix it. Some are more successful than others.
This is one of the better ones…. I’m really starting to like using lime juice rather than lemon juice.
Honey, Soy Glazed Grilled Salmon
Total time: 30 minutes
- 2 salmon fillets, 6oz each (180gr each)
- 2 tbs honey
- 3 tbs soy sauce
- 1 tbs lime juice
- 1 tsp Dijon-style mustard
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 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. Salmon will be done when it flakes easily, slightly pink in the center is fine.
- Remove from heat, slide the salmon off the skin if you like and serve.
It’s raining again.
After 3 days of beautiful, sunny dry weather we’re back to grey drizzle followed by rain followed by fog followed by drizzle.
Coincidentally the lawn mower is broken.
Mon mari started doing work in the barn.
Old stone barns tend to crack and settle. If you are driving around rural France you will often see a large metal ‘X’ on walls. It’s not decorative. It’s holding the walls together. See the rod going across our wall? There is an ‘X’ on the outside of each wall. The rod holds them up / together.
Anyway, he’s filling in the cracks.
First, of course, he had to move the firewood which is normally stacked in the far corner.
When the holes are big he stuffs them with rocks or bricks or whatever first, then adds the concrete. That’s standard farm-country repair technique.
As long as he’s playing with cement he decided to do some repair work to the well that’s under the wisteria.
The wisteria / pine tree makes such a thick canopy that he could work out there during the rain without getting wet.
Maybe he’ll even get the pump working and we’ll have a usable well.
Okay, let’s not get carried away….
