I decided I need to expose my children to fish.
The Mr. HATES fish. Actually, I'm not sure that 'hate' is a strong enough word. Needless to say, it hasn't been worth the argument, so I don't make it unless he is out of town. Unless I forget. Which is what usually happens.
But today, I remembered! And I knew just the recipe I was going to use, because I had saved it for months and months, just waiting for the perfect opportunity.
It did not disappoint. And all 3 of my non-fish eating kids ate it. And I get to eat the leftovers tomorrow. And that makes me happy...
Sweet Soy Soaked Salmon over Noodles
Recipe from Bake-aholic
4 1/4lb. salmon fillets
1/2 lb. spaghetti pasta
6 Tbsp. soy sauce
3" piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated (I used 1 tsp. powdered)
juice of 1 lime (2-3 Tbsp.)
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 bundle broccolini (I used asparagus)
1 large carrot, grated
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
4 scallions, chopped
2 tsp. sugar
3/4 c. chicken broth
Pour over fish in a shallow dish and marinate for 5 minutes.
Wash and cut vegetables and set aside.
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet with 2 Tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat.
Remove salmon from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and add to hot skillet.
Cook 3-4 minutes on each side, until just cooked through.
Remove salmon from skillet and tent with foil to keep it warm.
Wipe skillet out and return to stove with additional 2 Tbsp. olive oil.
Add the bell pepper, asparagus, grated carrot and garlic.
Cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.
Add the sugar to the reserved marinade, and pour into the skillet.
Add chicken broth and bring to a light boil; let simmer for 1 minute.
Add the cooked, drained pasta and the scallions; toss to combine.
Serve salmon over noodles.
