Under The Sea

When it comes to seafood, I’m a big fan.  Growing up in New Orleans, different forms of seafood were a staple on the menu for many meals.  Now that I’m in Oklahoma, I’ve got to take whatever sort of seafood I can get my hands on.  Lately, I’ve been trying some different salmon recipes.  Here’s a good one I’ve come across, Sesame Salmon with Stir Fried Vegetable Medley

What You’ll Need For This Recipe:
1 lb. salmon filets
½ cup Asian Toasted Sesame dressing (Kraft makes this.)
2 tsp. olive oil
8 baby carrots cut into strips
1 cup green beans
1 orange pepper, cut into strips
1 green onion, shredded

1.)  Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.  Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Place salmon on cookie sheet.  Brush fish with 2 tbsp. of dressing.

2.)  Bake 20 minutes, brushing fish periodically with additional 1 tsp. of dressing. 
Fish should flake easily with fork when finished.  Keep warm.

3.)  Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. 
Add carrots, beans, and pepper. 
Stir fry for about 6 minutes, or until crisp-tender. 
Add remaining dressing. 
Stir fry for about 3 minutes.

4.)  Serve fish over vegetables.  Sprinkle with onions.

The sesame dressing gives the fish and the veggies a sweet, nutty flavor.  Yum!
