What We Had For Dinner

Haven't had one of these posts in a while. And I love me a good recipe, so it's definitely over due:

Seared Salmon with Jalapeno Ponzu


1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons saki (rice wine)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1 large jalapeno pepper, cut crosswise into think slices


1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon, skin side down. 

3. Cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

4. Arrange 1 fillet on each of 4 plates. Top fillets evenly with jalapeno slices. Spoon about 2 tablespoons soy sauce mixture over each serving; let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I will say that the jalapenos were spiiiicy. Maybe cut out the seeds, or sautee them a bit before putting them on the fish (unless extra spicy's your style). But, we loooved the sauce that was on the fish. It was delicious!

This made for a perfect roomie dinner night. 

{Not to mention we have pretty much an entire bottle of saki left over. Saki bombs, anyone?}

Happy Almost Friday!

Oh that looks so good! I love salmon so much... I might have to try this without the jalapenos though. I can't stomach the spicy! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better through it! You're adorable and I'm excited to follow along!
