Given up on salmon steaks!
Bought a beautiful salmon fillet this afternoon
and went back to my favourite way of preparing it:
sandwiched between layers of lemongrass, green
onion, cilantro, ginger, chili pepper,
lime slices, salr, pepper, and olive oil.
The fillet et al was wrapped in foil and baked
at 375F for 30 minutes.
The fish was silky and moist.
No more fishy tasting salmon!
Bill had rice with his salmon along with asparagus
Squeeze of lime added that sparkle.
My portion was put together with tofu shiritaki
sauteed in non- stick pan for low-fat, low-carb
Pork back ribs: dry rub, in foil and slow oven
for 3 hours.
Opened foil, baked for 45 min., brushed with
BBQ sauce, baked for another 30 minutes.
Baked baby taters for Bill. Cauliflower and broccoli
with fat-free mozz for moi.
My 1/3 rack of ribs had only dry rub, no sauce
due to cut backs on sugar ;-)
I call this lovely prime rib roast - 5.88 KG,
Will be cooking this for our great-nephew
Brendan and his two 6'8" team members - UofA
men's volleyball team.
I hope there'll be enough meat.
Guess I'd better make a couple doz. Yorkies and
a big pot of rice ;-)
24 Yorkies done! well... 23 actually.
One was so puny that it got burnt.
I'm sure 23 will be enough... maybe even a couple
left for grandson Soulin!
The 5.88 KG prime rib roast - marinated overnight
with Montreal Steak Spice.
Roasted at 225 F from 5:00 - 9:30. Pulled at
Tented and rested until guys came at 11:00 pm.
The roast was still warm and at medium to med.
rare (close to bones).
Tender and juicy.
The gravy was great, as were the Yorkies, etc.
Drumsticks (ice cream kind!) were the perfect
Great nephew Brendan Yao's volleyball teammate

( 2 slabs each plate) of roast beef and additional

state of disbelief ;-)
Kurt is a farm boy, and, I don't think he was
eating JUST to please me;-)
