Something's Fishy...

at Publix!

They've been carrying the most amazing Sockeye Salmon, and I've eaten it four times this week. I just can't seem to get enough of the stuff. Prince Charming doesn't like seafood, but my girls have been enjoying it with me, and it's been so simple to prepare. The time I ate it with the fresh pineapple, I put some of the pineapple juice in the dish while it baked, but otherwise, I pop it in at 300 degrees for about 15 minutes with a little pepper and it's perfect.

I usually prefer fish that has a mild flavor, and sometimes salmon is too much for me, but for some reason, this fish has had the most amazing, subtle flavor. And, it's on sale :)

Big One loves hummus, and I hadn't made it in a while (Sabra made me lazy!), so I decided to whip up a batch. I had some nice organic lemon juice around for the salmon, so into the blender I threw:

  • About a can and 1/2 chickpeas (without the liquid)
  • a few good squirts of lemon juice
  • several shakes of salt
  • 10 twists of pepper
  • a good drizzle of olive oil
  • small pour of Cumin
  • and a slosh of the chickpea liquid

The blender handled it all fairly well, and Big One approved. I cook by feel and taste, so I didn't even try to guess accurate measurements for everything :)

I like my hummus on toasted-until-crispy whole wheat pita bread, but the girls had it on organic corn chips today. I did too, since we're all out of pita. And pity me, salmon too.


  1. oooo I like salmon. Haven't had it in awhile. And like hummus also...especially homemade. Yummy!

  2. I have only had salmon once and wasn't too crazy about it. But your recipe sure sounds good.

    I may just have to try it again.

  3. Sounds like a good, classic, yummy hummus recipe - very tasty indeed!
