Ok… so… Orange is the New Black is back on netflix and I don’t have much time to do things other than work (3 jobs) and watch it. #sorrynotsorry.
Season 3 just came out and it’s literally all I want to do. Watch the show. Do you watch it? I’m going to pretend you all do and wow. Just Wow. WHAT great actresses. They get so incredibly personal, up close, physical. It’s just crazy. They are so good.
And staying home and watching it and cooking is my jam this week. My jammmmm. Now that it’s summer I am instituting #FishFriday’s and for my first installment: soy glazed salmon with coconut rice, edamame, corn, carrot, onion and garlic hash on top. nom nom. I want more just writing about this
- 1 lb salmon, skin on one side
- 3 tbls soy sauce
- 1 cup uncooked rice, cooked with 1/2 cup coconut milk and water
- 1/2 cup cooked edamame’s, unshelled
- 1 cup corn kernels and diced carrots (frozen bag, WAY easier)
- 1/4 white onion, diced
- 1 large garlic clove, diced
- 2 tbls olive oil
Salt and pepper the non-skin side of the salmon and set to marinate in the soy sauce for approximately 30 minutes. Cook the rice according to instructions, substituting 1/2 cup coconut milk for water.
Spray a ridged cast iron pan with non-stick spray and pre-heat on medium until hot. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place each piece of salmon non-skin side down and cook for 2 minutes. Turn about 90degrees and let cook for 2 more minutes. This creates the criss-cross pattern. Turn salmon over so skin is against pan and place the pan in the oven for 7 minutes; or until cooked to your liking.
In a separate saute pan, add 2 tbls olive oil and let get the oil heat up. Add the rest of your ingredients (edamame’s, onion, corn, carrot, garlic) and salt/pepper to taste and saute until tender. Add rice to your veggie mixture and combine well.
Now, I put some mixed greens tossed with a smidge of balsamic vinaigrette and a pinch of salt. You definitely don’t need to do this to make the meal but I liked it.
Add your salmon, skin side down, on top of greens. Add a touch more of soy sauce to the top of the fish and top with your rice/veggie mixture. Let cool for a hot minute and enjoy!
Alright so back to Orange is the New Black, because let’s face it, that’s all I really want to talk about. I just can’t believe how unbelievably talented those actresses and actors are. Literally, just wow. I thought I was a good actress when it came to talking with people at the bar and pretending to be interested :). Jk, most of the time I am interested. But either way, the people in this show are just so beyond amazing and I can’t TURN IT OFF. I watched the entire season in 4 nights. Keep in mind two of those four days I worked from 9:30am till 3:30am the next day.
So now I think I’m going to watch all three seasons again. Watch all three seasons and make more seafood and tell you fun stories.
