Chicken, mushroom, bell pepper, sun-dried tomato, and anchovy salad

We had a can of anchovies sitting in the pantry waiting to be used. I thought we’d use them to make a Caesar salad. But after we had that smoked salmon salad, we thought we’d try keeping them whole.

Here we have Romaine lettuce, spinach, chicken breast, mushrooms, yellow bell peppers, and sun dried tomatoes. We laid a few fillets of anchovies right on top of the salad and dressed with balsamic vinegar and EVOO.

I like anchovies. I like strong flavors in general. But whole anchovy fillets were a bit much, even for me. I ended up having to take little pieces of fish at a time with each bite.

But it was still good!

Smoked Salmon Salad

Annie wanted to do a salad one night and we were looking around for ingredients. We had some smoked salmon sitting in our pantry for a while, so we thought, why not?

Romaine lettuce, orange bell pepper, red onion (sliced thinly), hard boiled egg, and capers. The salmon wasn’t the thinly sliced kind; rather, it was a whole fillet that we crumbled into chunks. The dressing was simply Annie’s Naturals brand Cilantro-lime dressing. Very easy to prepare, and lots of flavor!

Kinda nice to have these things sitting the pantry just waiting to be used. Wonder what else is in there?

Sweet Sour Tilapia Fillet

Every so often, frozen tilapia fillets will go on sale at Albertson’s so we pick up a whole bunch and keep ‘em handy in the freezer for whenever the mood hits us. They’re thin and easy to cook- you don’t even need to defrost them first. Just season them with salt and pepper, dust them in cornstarch, and pan fry them until they flake.

In this application, Annie also made a sweet-sour sauce with onions and bell peppers, ketchup, soy sauce and water. Garnish with some chopped green onions, and you’re good to go!

Broiled Miso Seabass

One of the things I enjoyed growing up in Hawaii was “miso butterfish”. There’s some confusion over what exactly this “butterfish” is. But there’s no denying how yummy it is.

Marinate some seabass fillets in sake, mirin, and white miso for 3 days, turning each day to ensure even coating.

Broil until the top starts to turn nicely brown. Then turn the oven to 400*F for about 8 minutes. Remove and cool.

Over the three days marinating, that lovely miso flavor permeated the flesh of the seabass. Definitely have to do this again!
Aloha, Nate
