One of my favorite ,more interesting ways to bake off salmon- worth a note

Salmon Fillets-
(only wild )
tbs of honey
2 or 3 tbs of crushed cashews (raw, unsalted or do not add salt to fish if seasoned)
salt, pepper to taste

Simple as simple can be- drizzle honey over tops of fillets after you salt and pepper them to taste- i prefer sea salt and cracked blk pepper- coat with crushed cashews, bake at 350 until perfect…about 20 min give or take on your oven or bake off in your favorite way-
dont forget to serve with lemon juice squeezed on top-

note: I made this with left over crushed cashews, peas, garlic over pasta with red pepper and salt/pepper- little parm cheese and a plain green salad with lemon and olive oil.


So, I am truly going to become the poaching queen for chicken dishes! I decided it was so easy, flavorful and versatile- not to mention healthy! here is a good healthy option that was easy and ended up delicious more than any other way I have prepared it thanks to the poaching!

2 chicken breasts (skinless)
8 or more peppercorns
1 bayleaf
1/4 lemon
enough water to almost cover chicken in a saucepan
-start all this to boil, then reduce to simmer – cover for 30 min or so

about 2 cups of broccoli- saute with 2 cloves of garlic, 2 inch piece of ginger -( diced)
then steam with some mirin, soy sauce or braggs, and add tbls of miso, tbls peanut buter and tbls of sesame oil with some broth off the chicken to make a small sauce-
– cook 2 bundles of Soba Noodles

make a bowl of noodles, add a bit of chicken broth, diced serving of the poached chicken- top with miso sauce, broccoli and red pepper flakes, drizzle small bit of sesame oil and serve!
