This week he theme for Eating with Ellie is Seafood. That covers a lot of territory. Fish, shrimp, lobster, crawfish, even squid. While I would have liked to have some calamari I decided to play it safe this week and go with some lovely salmon.
I’ve been eating a lot of salmon these past few weeks because of the fresh they have had available at a decent price, for a change. It’s wild caught so it’s really good.
Ellie has this salmon baked in a Moroccan sauce flavored with cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and ginger. The kitchen smelled so good! I made 1/2 a batch and it was plenty for two meals.
The recipe called for Kale but I am not a fan so I subbed in some spinach. The only change I would make would be to double the spices, or at least to increase them. The flavor was a tad mild. I cut them in 1/2 since I was making only 1/2 a batch. I wish I had left the spices in for a whole batch.
But, it was good.
The recipe is on Ellie’s Blog.
