We wanted fish for dinner this evening, so yesterday I searched epicurious.com, and under their Quick & Easy recipe section, this recipe for Asian Salmon Bowl with Lime Drizzle came up that was rated 4 forks by 2 reviewers. I was a little wary of the recipe because 1) there were only 2 reviews and 2) it's attributed to SELF magazine. (While I believe in cooking and eating healthy foods, I don't usually cook recipes from 'health' type magazines because their recipes seem to always cut out significant flavor or texture -- and they tend to use low fat/fat-free and artificial sweeteners which I refuse to use.)
This recipe turned out quite nicely and was definitely FAST and healthy.
- Because we love spice, I added double the amount of red pepper flakes.
- Instead of 4 salmon fillets, I bought one large fillet, so it took longer than 12 minutes to cook.
- I used butter to cook the spinach instead of canola oil. Butter makes everything better!
- We had white sesame seeds on hand, so I used those instead of buying black sesame seeds.
