This salmon was absolutely delicious but it came with the fish stink I can't stand. My husband had requested deer steak so the house had a lovely aroma last night. Fortunately, it was a warm (for this time of the year) evening and I was able to keep the doors open and air the place out for a while.
I buy the individually frozen skinless salmon fillets from Costco and they're defintely the best way to buy salmon, as far as I'm concerned. You can pull them out of the freezer in the morning and they're thawed out by dinner time.
It's been awfully quiet around here. I have to admit I'm starting to bore myself a bit but in the past few months I've learned that there are highs and lows in blogging. Right now, I'm just trying to find recipes that fit the ingredients I have on hand, which is somewhat limiting. It is paying off, though. Last night I spent less on groceries than I have in months.
