My husband invited his friend and friend’s family over for dinner one night. I didn’t know him well at that time and asked Stephen (my hubs) what they like or don’t like. Of course, husbands are the best communicators who tell you everything in complete detail….HA! He said, “He loves everything.” So I figured, ok, I’ll do salmon. It’s light and perfect for the hot weather we were having.
Lo and behold, they all arrive and the guy hates salmon! Barely likes fish, and couldn’t stand salmon because it was too “fishy” to him. I was bummed and hoped he could at least eat the salad I made to accompany the fish. Well, he was courteous enough to try a bite after seeing his son and girlfriend devour theirs. He then had another bite and another and then asked for a second helping! I love the idea my cooking can convert the nay sayers! These kind of accomplishments are great badges of honor for me. My girlfriend made my salmon recipe and converted her twin 9 year old boys! (pat, pat – myself on the shoulder)
I always believe that kids and adults may not like a certain food because they haven’t eaten that food cooked correctly. Who’d like fish if it were dry or smelly? Who’d like broccoli if it was overcooked and tasteless or undercooked and chewy? Who’d like liver if it was mealy? Yep, I’ve even converted people who didn’t like liver! Ask my kids! Anyways, back to salmon! When it comes to any food, it’s important that it’s fresh and when it comes to seafood, it’s even more important to me that it’s wild.
Hope you try this recipe if you are a fan of salmon or not. There’s onions in it and please try that if you’re a fan or not as well… you may become my bragging rights if I turned you. hehehe!
