One of my favorite things about cooking is the feedback you (hopefully) get from those who’s bellies your filling.
Most nights the lucky recipient of my culinary creations is my lover. Just to be clear, my lover is also my husband. Keeps things much simpler.
When it gets complicated is when I’m craving some Omega 3’s in the form of the seafood persuasion. And despite Brandon’s undying love for crabs, shrimp and lobster, he is not a fan of fish.
This is funny coming from a man who takes an annual trip to Montauk with his dad to go deep sea fishing. Who doesn’t like to enjoy the fruits of their labors? I like a relaxing fishing trip as much as the next person, but that’s mostly because I get to reap the benefits when all’s said and done. Food as a motivator people. Never fails.
Luckily for me, Tarjay sells these wonderful little individually wrapped Wild Caught Alaskan salmon filets. It’s like a onesie… for your mouth.
However, be sure when you’re preparing your scrumptious little filet that you don’t drop it in the sink immediately after cleaning a whole chicken. Cause you might get salmonella… ha… get it?
I really did that though. Thankfully I’ve lived to tell about it. Probably because I made sure to accompany the filet with a crisp glass of Sav Blanc. Obviously in an effort to kill the potential contamination with alcohol.

Now if only he didn’t like TV, kings-sized beds and french fries… I’d really be living the high life.
Just kidding. I don’t mind sharing the bed.
The TV and fries are mine though.
Oh and be sure to tell yourself how delicious this is, immediately after consuming. Compliments to the chef are always appreciated.
Question: Is there any type of food you don’t like? Mine is probably hot dogs. Too many mysterious components…
