Here’s a fun fact about me, I’m a list maker. I make lists for everything. And I’ve been making lists for as long as I can remember. Crossing items off a list makes me feel really productive. Sometimes I think I add extra items to my list just so I can cross more things off. At any given time you can probably find 4 or 5 scraps of paper with lists floating around my purse….usually a grocery list, a list of errands to get done, a list of recipes I want to make, a list of upcoming deadlines at work. Then, there are the ever-growing lists I keep stored in my phone….a list of the restaurants I want to try, a list of my “go-to” restaurants and a list of all the books I want to read. I can pretty much find a way to make a list for anything.
When I go to the grocery store and need to get something that’s not on the list, I can remind myself 100 times what it is I need, and there’s still a 99.9% chance I’ll forget it. If it’s not on the list it usually doesn’t make its way into my basket.
Here’s another interesting tidbit, I read my horoscope on a semi-regular basis. Don’t worry, I don’t get weird about it, and I understand that just about anyone can find a way to relate their a horoscope. I’m just curious what it has to say, is all. Anyway, a while back I read somewhere that a few traits typical of my sign (I’m a Capricorn, in case you were curious) is that we’re practical (check), we’re list-makers (check) and we’re stubborn (double check).
This salmon has been on my list of recipes to make for quite some time now. In a word, wow! Just wow. This is the best salmon I’ve had in a long, long time and without a doubt the best salmon to ever come out of my kitchen. I love the light flavor the citrus zest and coriander leaves on the fish, but what really makes this stand out is the pea sauce. Yum! One thing to keep in mind, you don’t want to overdo it with the sauce. Just a light coating of pea sauce over the plate is enough to compliment the fish & citrus flavors, without overwhelming it.
