Eat fancy without breaking your budget


I want to start off by saying I’m truly grateful and honored to be a food blogger, not just because of the popularity or the exposure it gets, but also because it has given me the opportunities to try new foods. For example, when I began blogging I didn’t like salmon at all, and now eleven posts later salmon recipes are my favorite. Then this past weekend my family and I went to a Mexican and seafood restaurant called Tampico Seafood to celebrate my Grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary. We ordered red snapper and fried shrimp. And oh my goodness let me just say that they were tasty.

Forget going to a fancy seafood/steakhouse, try this delicious recipe!

Side dish Cauli-tots

Honey Glazed Salmon with Citrus-Avocado Salsa

Ingredients

Salmon

4 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets, rinsed and pat dry
8 tsp honey, divided
8 tsp flour, divided
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salsa

1 large Hass avocado, peeled, cored and diced1/3 cup chopped red onion 1 tsp orange zest
2 small oranges, peeled, sectioned and diced
*1 tsp lime zest
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Working with two salmon fillets at a time, sprinkle tops of fillets with salt and pepper, then drizzle tops with one tsp honey and rub over salmon to evenly cover, then sprinkle tops with one tsp flour and spread to cover. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add one Tbsp olive oil, once oil is hot add two salmon fillets to pan and cook until bottom is golden brown, about two minutes. While they cook, sprinkle tops of fillets in the pan with salt and pepper then drizzle and spread the top with one tsp honey and one tsp flour.

Carefully rotate salmon and cook until bottom is golden, about two minutes longer. Repeat process with remaining two fillets. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray then transfer salmon to baking sheet. Bake in preheated until cooked through, about seven-ten minutes longer (cook time will vary depending on a thickness of salmon). Serve warm with citrus avocado salsa.

For the salsa: Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and gently stir, while seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.*This can be made without the oranges, just omit the oranges and orange zest and use two avocados and up lime zest to two tsp.
