Two-Minute Salmon Terryaki 1

Two-Minute Salmon Terryaki

I saw this salmon teriyaki over on The Kitchn a few weeks ago and immediately ran to the store to get the ingredients to make it. I’m so glad that I did, because now not only do I have a new go-to weeknight recipe, I have a fail-proof new way to cook fish! I feel like this photo doesn’t do the recipe justice at all; the salmon is incredibly succulent and falls apart into big, tender flakes with a gentle tap with your fork. Served over rice it doesn’t look like much, but we’re still talking about it weeks later and I can’t wait to make it again.

Rather than cooking this salmon on the stovetop or roasting it, you cook it very quickly under the broiler – it literally only takes 2 minutes!

Meat-Free Friday: Mahi Mahi with Sauteed Cherries in an Oolong Broth

mahi mahi in oolong broth

Yesterday turned out to be a very tea-filled day (which is never a bad thing!). I met up with Rebecca from Rosey Rebecca in the afternoon for my first Teavana experience. I got the iced pear luna and it was amazing, not bitter at all like iced tea can be sometimes (although it could have used more ice)! I’ll definitely be going back there.

Then I came home and made this delicious grilled mahi mahi with sauteed cherries in oolong broth for dinner. Cherries are one of my all-time favorite fruits, but I’ve never used them in a savory dish before. When I saw a recipe that called for combining them with fish and a tea broth, I knew I would have to try it! Definitely a winner, and much less complicated to make than I thought it would be – it only took me about a half hour total, so this is easily a weeknight meal. [….]
