It's been a long week. The convention, house guests, working overtime, the debut of a huge campaign (www.nyclu.org/vote), today's big news from McCain...all ending well with a scrimmage against Crescendo in Prospect Park (big disappointment: I struck out). We needed a simple dinner. I love stopping for chicken wings after a softball game, but we came home (after a margarita at Rachel's) and made a standard Friday night dinner. (Nice Christian girl, fish on Fridays...)
Marinated Salmon & Sauteed Broccoli
1 lb fresh piece of salmon
2 tbsp sugar
pinch of ginger
Salt and pepper
Half a head of broccoli
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup yogurt
Marinate the salmon in a mixture of tamari, sugar, ginger, salt and pepper for a few hours.
Heat a cast iron pan and sear the salmon in some olive oil. Stick the salmon in a dish in the stove at about 350 degrees.
Sautee some chopped garlic, add broccoli florets and chopped stem. Add 1 1/2 chopped scallions. Season with salt and pepper.
Mix 1 1/2 chopped scallions with yogurt and season with salt and pepper.
Serve a piece of salmon with some broccoli pieces and a dollop of seasoned yogurt. Chomp it up.
