It's the first Monday of the school year. Wisconsin actually has a law that school cannot start before September 1st (unless your district is granted a waiver, and they're hard to get), so we started on a Thursday and then last week was of course Labor Day. So here we are. Let's hope the kids got some rest this weekend (although I doubt it since we had beautiful summer-like weather and everywhere I went, I saw kids running around outside, including my own!).
And, well, teachers need their rest, too. So that's all I got for you (because I was busy this weekend, too). Well, here, have a recipe, um, make that two (we made both last night and they were very good!). (although we used freshwater salmon - my sister from Alaska tells me you don't need the oil for ocean salmon) Oh, and I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss today. What are you reading?
Recipe I: Rinse fish and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. There is a muddy, fatty part underneath the skin side you should cut out with a fillet knife (it tastes like dirt if you eat it). Mix together the juice from at least 1 lemon and a couple tablespoons of olive (or canola) oil. Add dill (fresh is best, but dried will work, too) and a chopped up onion. add fish and let marinade for at least 2 hours. Pour into a foil packet and grill over moderate to high heat for 10 minutes per side. fyi: I always marinade in a ziploc bag and then just toss the bag when I'm done for easy cleanup!
Recipe II: (start same as above, also sprinkle with garlic powder). Mix lemon juice, 1/3 cup of soy sauce, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup water, and 1/4 cup olive (or canola) oil. Proceed as above. (the original recipe I had said to broil it right on top of the grill, but I like it better with the marinade in the foil pack. Yum!)
