Sunday Night Dinner

family dinner 2Good evening everyone.  Just wanted to share the meal I prepared for dinner this evening. My wife purchased some fresh Coho salmon, plantains and frozen green beans. And what did I come up with?  Pan Seared Soy-Sesame Glazed Salmon Filet with steamed rice, sautéed green beans, fried plantains and sweetened green tea.

I took the salmon sliced it into 3 oz. portions, seasoned it with salt-free seasoning, premium dark soy sauce, sesame oil and some lemon pepper to lighten it up a bit. Seared the salmon in a cast iron skillet for 3 minutes on each side. Cooked some white rice and minced some onions to make some fried rice (my wife’s  request). Cooked some cut green beans with Vidalia onions and seasoned with Bragg’s liquid amino for flavor.  Fried sweet ripe plantains with squeezed lemon and sprinkled with brown sugar with a refreshing sweetened green tea. It was a hit! Light, seasoned and favorable meal to start a new week. I will add the recipe soon.
