Sweet Chili Salmon

Sweet Chili Salmon

This was easily one of our fave meal ever and will be a repeat at our house.

-4 salmon steaks or fillets
-1/4 c sweet chili sauce
-1 Tbsp soy sauce
-juice of 1 lime

Whisk together sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and lime juice. Pour over salmon fillets and marinate 30 minutes- 4 hours. Shake excess sauce off of fish. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes.

While salmon is baking, pour the marinade into a small pot, bring to a boil and simmer for at least 10 minutes until sauce reduces and thickens.

Top fish with sauce and scallions and/ or sesame seeds for garnish.

Kale Caesar Salad

Kale Caesar Salad

This is our current favorite salad. The flavors are simple enough to compliment most meals. I like to toss the dressing with the kale about 30 minutes prior to serving to allow the kale some time to break down. The kale is sturdy enough that you can dress the salad and it will still be good for most of the day.

-1 bunch kale, washed and torn into bite sized pieces
-1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese


-1/2 c olive oil
-1/2 c lemon juice
-2 cloves garlic
-1 Tbsp dijon mustard
-1 tsp sugar
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Combine dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix well. Toss with kale and parmesan and serve.
