Citrus Salmon

Tonight, I made citrus salmon.  I forgot how freaking delicious salmon is! YUM!  The salmon was cooked perfectly in my opinion, and I had brown rice and veggies as my sides (shocker, I know, but it's easy):

I only wish I had more of it, haha - but it was super easy to make.  I got prepackaged fillets, so i just had to put the seasonings on and pop it in the oven.  I think in the past, I have never known what to season my food, other than salt, haha.  If I'm making italian, I have a good idea of what to do, but otherwise I don't know!  I'm hoping that as I cook through this book, I'll get a sense of what spices/seasonings go well together and what they go well on!

Today for lunch I enjoyed the salad I made last night.  I have to say, even though it wasn't bad, I'm sick of lettuce!  The fruits, nuts, cheese, and dressing were great, but I don't want anymore salad!  I have some to take for tomorrow, but next week I'm taking a break from salad for sure.  I found a place I can microwave food in the hospital, so now I can bring things that need to be heated up instead of sticking to salads and sandwiches.  And, in a few weeks, I hopefully will be done with my study and not have to be in the hospital all day - back to my lab, where I definitely have a fridge/freezer/microwave :-)

Stay tuned for FRIED MAC AND CHEESE tomorrow.  Yum!


  1. Hmm...what goes on citrus salmon? Not a fish-eater, but I'd wonder how it'd go with chicken.

  2. Some lemon and herbs go on the salmon, and then an orange-juice based sauce goes over it.

    It's funny - I think I'm better at cooking fish than I am chicken, even though I always thought chicken was "easier" ... but my chicken has been dry so far, while my salmon was perfect!
